An Election. Marriage. Communication and the movie ARRIVAL.

To make things simple, let’s for a moment think about our country as a rather simplistic dualism, made up of two groups of people: the right/conservative and the left/liberal. The two sides don’t always have to agree on things, but for better or for worse, we’re united together as citizens of the same country. And we must find a way to work together.

Hmm. For better or for worse. That phrase sure sounds familiar, doesn’t it? Read more…

The Ashley Madison TV Show & The Good That Could Have Been

I live in a weird part of the world. I juggle convictions and morals in an environment that often seems incompatible with them. I struggle with what to say and how to say it and what I’m allowed to say. Even with its weirdness, however, I still value the confidentiality of this entertainment business and respect the need to keep bits of information I’ve gathered here and there to myself. Often my random knowledge wouldn’t really matter to anyone else, but every once in a while I’ve been privy to things that give me a different perspective of an issue that the rest of the world is not able to see.

You know the whole Ashely Madison thing? Where all the user email addresses of the infidelity website were hacked and released? Of course you do; it was all over the news and the topic of many articles and blog posts and vitriol. Well, what you don’t know is that KP and I have a history with Ashley Madison. Ok, well, KP has the history – but as his wife and as it’s something we’ve discussed in depth, I have a history with it too. Read more…

Here we go!… (Again.)

Last week, any spare time I had went to planning our first family camping trip we took last weekend. A post covering that fun event is next in the queue to be written.

This week, I’ve been immersed in another project. A very exciting and humbling and hopeful project. But as with all things in the entertainment business world, I don’t dare share news of it yet. Nothing is for sure until it’s for sure. But there’s something special about this one I think. Read more…

SQT 4/10/15: Handling Marriage, America’s Got Talent & Other Boring Stuff

So I really like doing these Seven Quick Take Link-Ups over at This Ain’t The Lyceum on Fridays. Seven things that don’t really constitute a whole blog post, but things I want to chat about nevertheless.

tweets1) So did you see that article that went viral earlier this week about why we supposedly can’t handle marriage anymore? It had really bugged me, so I wrote a response to it. Twittered it to the author of the article as well. He tweeted back. I know it’s not much, but I do try to make a difference in the small things if I can.

About to perform.

2) This past Monday my parent flew into town and we watched my youngest sister perform in front of the America’s Got Talent judges. I can’t tell you what happened or if they made it to the next round or not, so Read more…
