Would you look at the time? It's the end of December, so that means it's time for...
Apparently, I either didn't do much or just didn't post much in January. So I guess nothing much to report.
But hey! The year could only get better, right?
I said, and still believe the following:
Yep, that's right. This was the first rehearsal I'd ever been a part of that got interrupted by a fucking SWAT TEAM.
Kind of depressing, really.
This was the month I did my first ever audio post. Hoo-rah.
But then there was THE BLITZ, and I was able to sonically document the whole process of co-writing the musical with Morey Burnard, as well as take some really grainy pictures of the cast with my phone-camera.
Better is the three-DVD set offered by RASHfilms, which features (in the deleted scenes) this moment, where my show inspired Kathy Lynn Sliter and Molly Vanderlin to grope each other while thinking of me:
It was in June that Joel Gersmann made the last phone call he would ever make to me.
A week later, he was dead.
I've said just about all I want to say on the subect here.
Yup, this was the month that Sledgehammer Party finally opened, then ran through...
...and finally closed in...
...after which I wrote (and acted in) a short play about the smoking ban for WhoopDeDoo's production of "Smokin."
Oh, and this was the month I turned 34.
And that's all I'm gonna say about THAT subject.
And the scariest thing about the month was that I didn't post anything.
This was the month that the movie Jarhead was released, and I discovered that my old friend from college, Becky Boxer is in the film as "Dettman's Wife." (If you've seen the film, you probably remember her scene.)
I found this picture the other day, a publicity shot for a college show I was doing called TagTeam. So when Becky becomes a big huge movie star, you can say you got this exclusive gun fetish shot on my website. Mine.
Oh, yeah, and I wrote a novel.
And here we are, back to the beginning of another year. In the following year I've got a short play coming up with Mercury Players called "May Is A Special Time Of Year" for their upcoming Mercury Rising show.
I'm kicking around getting involved with more digital filmaking this year, but more on this as it happens.
Happy New Year, everybody.
*Oh, and is there anything more obnoxious than people who post "TLDR?" Your day's so fucking busy you can't read one stupid post, but you're going to comment on it anyway? This is the kind of dickwad who plays D&D and cheats, like it's for money or some fuckin' thing.

Rob, Love the picture of you in the shirt with the Star Trek insignia. How adorable! What a cute little fella! I would have liked to have known him.
P.S. I dare you to write the "nice" plays!
The one I wrote for Mercury Rising is a definite lean in the direction of a "nicer" show.
That said, it does involve guns and assassins, so I'm not there yet.
Well, if it's a resolution, then it's all yours to break, buddy.
But, hey, I'd just be happy with an email response.
Or a nicer-weather-visit to the balmy burbs of Chicago, where you can smoke on my deck, drink beer from my keg...errr... water from my filtered refrigerator thingy and hang out and play stupid video games (see a pic over at my site) and just sorta hang out for a day or so.
Cool year-in-review post, Rob. I enjoyed both your shows. I think Terrordome was my favorite but they were both intense. I may do a year-in-review myself soon, it's a good idea. Talk to ya later.
