is that mom and dad?

That is Mom and Dad! My mom and I do a lot together, but not so much with my dad. He was very excited, which was really fun!

DC vs. Marvel

Bro: I actually like DC better than Marvel.
Me: I know you do, but I like Marvel better.
Bro: Because it's more mainstream.
Me: No, because it has better female characters.
Bro: That's not true.
Me: Besides Wonderwoman.
Bro: Have you seen Power Girl? She has these huge--
Me: --My point exactly.
Bro: Come on, every female and male superhero is scantily clad, Marvel and DC.
Me: Yeah, but not all of their powers come from their humongous tits.

My friend Will shot what may be the finest cat video of 2014, nay the finest cat video on the interwebz! (This may change once @yulinkuang’s video is released, but that is a bridge we will cross when the time comes)

We are working on Mister Ghost’s Mystery Parcel, THE RAVEN, and came up with a silly idea. It doesn’t fit, but upon showing it to a handful of friends of the firm, we wanted to show it off anyway.

Which movie are we talking about? I thought her scene with Colin Firth in The King’s Speech, for example, was kind of breathtaking just for what the actor pairing brought to mind. But I’m guessing you’re talking about a different movie.

Oh, no. I love her work in most things, I’ve even seen her on Broadway. This movie is based on a horrible book and released a sexy trailer.

I just found out that Jennifer Ehle plays the mother in “that” movie, and it makes me incredibly sad. Oh Elizabeth Bennet, what happened?

"Don’t wait for permission to make something that’s interesting or amusing to you. Just do it now. Don’t wait. Find a story idea, start making it, give yourself a deadline, show it to people who’ll give you notes to make it better. Don’t wait till you’re older, or in some better job than you have now. Don’t wait for anything. Don’t wait till some magical story idea drops into your lap. That’s not where ideas come from. Go looking for an idea and it’ll show up. Begin now. Be a fucking soldier about it and be tough."

Quick tip for things to do immediately post-interview:

When I come out of an interview, I jot down the things I remember as being my favorite moments. For an hour-long interview usually it’s just four or five moments, but if out I’m reporting all day, I’ll spend over an hour at night typing out every favorite thing that happened. This is handier than you might think. Often this short list of favorite things will provide the backbone to the structure to my story.

This is really good advice, and worth keeping!

What can I say, lies? When I take a selfie, I make it count? No need to pander, I already like you? Don’t be facetious? Or maybe just “Thanks?” Yeah, I think “Thanks” sums it up nicely.
