Today is my dad’s birthday. I’ve talked about how much I adore this man and his incredible creativity and sense of humor before.
In honor of his birthday, I’ve published live one of my latest creations from one of my strangest characters. Check out “Meet Zee: Documentary of a Weirdo” live online now.
I don’t mind if you don’t get her. She’s not for everyone. And I know my dad will love it. And that’s all I care about.
Love you daddy. Now enjoy your weirdo daughter.
I’m shooting a short Western this weekend. I’m very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very (deep breath) very very very very very very very very veeeeeery excited about.
There are gonna be stunts and horses and gunfights and shenanigans. I’m stoked.
I’ve been pushing myself to get in great shape for it so I have the endurance to keep my energy all the way up all weekend long and have the body strength to make my character even more badass and awesome.
Because I don’t want anything about this project to be average. Myself included.
So push it.
I apologize for the use of this cheesy Fitspiration here. It’s too perfect for my current mindset not to use it.
I’m currently obsessed with Westerns
Truth be told, I’m almost always obsessed with something, so this is actually a healthier obsession than some of the ones in my past…
Long story short: I did a project for a festival and met a guy who loves Westerns. He suggested we do a comedy western. I was like, “Sure!” He met my main man, they got along splendidly, and now we’re going to go shoot a short comedy Western I wrote in a couple weeks.
Because life is pretty cool like that.
I’m so excited. So I’ve been watching a series of classic westerns to prepare. And I’m getting into them. Like… real into them. As in, sit at home on weekend nights, watch cowboy movies, and walk around (my studio apartment in Los Angeles) pretending to glare down my (invisible) opponent and grasp my (also invisible) gun.
So if you need me, I’ll be in the Wild Wild West of my imagination for the next couple weeks. Please be patient with me, partner. When I return, I’ll be your Huckleberry.
