red light… greenlight 1-2-3


was 2015 the three amber countdown? I think it was. 

this isn’t about resolutions this is just what I am going to do:

  • be much less cynical
  • have more fun*
  • slow my thoughts
  • have more faith in myself
  • write paper thank you notes
  • listen and don’t interrupt
  • become expert in 2 more things**
  • don’t be afraid to stay in touch with people
  • let that freak flag fly again
  • believe it’s amber and gonna go green and be ready

*this is really too general but I think it connects to believing that I can enjoy life and still be effective. that suffering doesn’t imply increased focus and therefore success. what’s the point if it sucks getting there? I’ll be sapped and bitter and hideous. nope. keep it light kid.

**this means drilling down on the specifics: GT cars btw 1963-1974, vehicle sales and marketing; recipe development….

  • blog it

the deal

i am an independent movie producer. i also produce television. this blog is about food + movies… and not losing your mind in hollywood. CAA hasn’t returned your call? make a paté. BBC passed on your brilliant science fiction series? corn a brisket. i’m not going to talk about working my way through julia child (done, feh) or david chang’s momofuku cookbook (done, BRILLIANTLY) i love food and i love movies (i convince myself of the latter daily.) i suppose what i really love is telling stories – and both food and film can tell a million different ones. so this blog is about giving myself an outlet while things percolate. because waiting is for suckers.
