How to Be a Dad


For Oren

Posted by on March 2nd, 2015, under NOTEBOOK

My mind is a sweatshop of emotion right now. I keep waiting for the bell to sound so I can go home. But closing time doesn’t seem likely for a good while. This past Saturday was a banner day in existential pain. Post by HowToBeADad. First, it was my late father’s birthday. When I say […]

My Father’s Search For The Fisher King

Posted by on September 3rd, 2014, under NOTEBOOK

After Robin Williams died, I was unreasonably distraught. In the context of all things, I never actually knew the man and only saw him as much as one could say they’d seen a ghost around San Francisco and Marin County. But he was ever-present. I remember seeing him around town in Marin County. I remember […]

Finn: “Will I ever die?” Me: “What do you think, bug?” Finn: “I never die. We start over, growing again from our skulls.” Me: “Does that mean I could be your son? And will you take care of me when I’m old?” Finn: “Yep. I’ll give you lots of kisses.” -Dad & Finn (2014, 4.75 […]

A Letter From My Dead Father

Posted by on February 25th, 2014, under NOTEBOOK, SNAPSHOTS

I often ask myself why I write here. Who is this for? Do I think it’s even worth reading? This kind of writing can feel like the most self-centered exercise ever undertaken and I surely don’t post enough cat pictures or gossip to compel people to return. But today’s worth it. The reason, I’ve found […]

This Guy…

I was bummed out, irrationally so, when I heard James Gandolfini passed away. He was a phenomenal actor, and I’d like to think, a solid family man. This video is so great because I feel like I’m getting to witness a side of him that I’m not used to seeing. RIP, James. We’re all slightly […]

Oh, The Places We Go

Posted by on January 9th, 2013, under NOTEBOOK

I’m not sure about this whole adulthood thing anymore. The events of the past month and a half have me a little uneasy regarding the state of affairs on this ball of water and rock. Life’s simplicities, once clear and vibrant, are now confused and complex. I wanted to write about Connecticut when it happened. […]

A White Carpet Frankenweenie Premiere

Posted by on September 28th, 2012, under NOTEBOOK

I wanted to tell you guys my stories from the premiere of Frankenweenie. If you want to read my review of the actual film: GO HERE! Almost look like I belong on the other side of the guardrail, right? One of the less logical but more obvious perks of living here in Los Angeles and […]
