Well, if you haven’t noticed, I’ve been light on the posting lately. Or if you’re a long time reader, it’s just par for the course for my slacker ass!! But, I’ve been worn out for most of the week, because after my long days of work, I zip on out to rehearsals for…

That’s right, almost 3 years of not appearing on stage (seriously, not since ‘Rudolph The Red-Hosed reindeer’ in December 2005) have gone by, and I’m back! I’m playing Jason Chenier in the Baltimore premiere of the Tony-winning play “Take Me Out”. It’s been a fun rehearsal process, and I’m eager for us to open tomorrow night, so that I can both share my work with the community, AND get my life back. Rehearsal every night is killer! But I’m mostly pleased with the show, and my performance in it. Oh and I get naked in it, as does most of the cast.

So if your interested in seeing it, head to Fells Point Corner Theatre to get information on performances & tickets.

Oh and that picture above is our poster. I love how retarded I look in it. It’s like I’m in a promo photo for either ‘Nunsense’ or ‘Angels in The Outfield’ and they cropped my dumb head right into the center. Awesome!!

Franz Ferdinand – Take Me Out

I just got a new dance cover of Tracy Chapman’s ‘Fast Car’, and was surprised that’s it’s not that bad. It also made me think of the version ex-Sugababe Mutya Buena did for the big Radio 1 anniversary cd last year, which brought in some pop and gospel-lite flourishes. The somber folky tune stands up to varied interpretations, so I’m sharing what I got with you! What do YOU think!?

Incredible variant cover to issue 5 of the piss poor Wolverine Origins series. The detail in the art is great, and the image of Wolvie up on Cyclops woman with a sword to her neck is provocative. Too bad the story isn’t.

Speaking of provocative covers…
The Klaxons – No Diggity
Mutya Buena – Fast Car


Once upon a time, alterna-goddess Tori Amos, fronted an 80’s hair band – Y Kant Tori Read. The band met with no success & the record company dropped the project after 2 quick months of promo. Fortunately, they kept Tori around, and 4 years after the record flopped, she released the groundbreaking masterpiece, ‘Little Earthquakes’. What many people don’t know however, is that Y Kant Tori Read, was pretty decent…

I’m so shocked I haven’t got to Lenny Kravitz yet!? He is smoking hot & makes consistently excellent music. He also seems like he would be one of the most cool and down to earth people to hang out with. All that, and you could do your laundry on his stomach. What a guy!
