Last Night @ Gardenia

I got to Keri Kelsey’s open mic at The Gardenia late and was called up to the mic right after Karen HernandezDori AmarillioMichael Saucier did such a kick-ass, jazz instrumental session, that I didn’t want to get off my bar stool, personally, thinking that the evening could have ended perfectly right then.

However, I did get up…

On that bar stool I had a few ideas of what song I’d sing, but changed my mind on the fly on my walk over to the piano with my iPad, quickly searching for and selecting another song, only to change it once again after I put my electronic tablet down in front of Mike Farrell who was back at the piano. He is one of Hollywood’s go-to pianists for many of the singing or music-based TV shows…and has played with/for many well-known bands and singers.

Although I really didn’t want to get up, once the music started and I started singing, it truly felt awesome, at the very least it was a selfish joy to sing with such talented, world-class musicians playing behind me.

Chantry Flats, Sturtevant Falls

If you’ve been reading me you’ve seen dozens of pictures of hikes off of Chantry Flats, especially to Sturtevant Falls… well, today I’m posting a few more.

This morning was a glorious time to hike, not at all hot, not cold, just right. The water level was enough to get the bottoms of our boots wet upon a few crossings, and the falls roared with cascading water.

This is one of my favorite hikes, one of the hikes that started me thinking of the story of Park Ranger Park years ago…

Today along our trek, to the falls, and then looping above the falls, we tracked a number of things that I thought would be fun for anyone reading the book, though I know the paperback was just released on AMAZON and the Kindle isn’t due out till Feb 10th.

HOWEVER, maybe after you see this blog post, and then read the book later, you will realize why I took certain pictures… although most of the shots are obviously just for fun.

Take a hike, read a book… maybe bring Park Ranger Park to a waterfall with you, and read it there.

Free in LA (Pasadena)

Today Fe & me went to JPL. Free thing to do while in town. All ages.

Interesting. Nerdy. Fascinating. Inspiring. 

A few week waiting list. Sun, steps, and some walking.

But you get to keep the pass & lanyard.

Opening in October ’16 – Hollywood Premiere Party


I just got word from one of the producers that I may now publicly disclose that I’ve been cast in a new, LIVE THEATRE event that will be premiering in Hollywood this coming autumn…

Hollywood Premiere Party

I have very few other details to release at this point: The location is set. The PR team is gearing up. The actors are cast. Stage manager hired. Rehearsal schedule released. The writer/director promises to continue to develop the script through rehearsals, and I’m sure that each night it will change slightly with each new audience.

What I can write at this point is that my character is shaping up to be a handful of fun, wild emotion & craziness…

It’s a while off, and things can always change, but as of now, production dates are listed as follows: October 7th & 8th, 14th & 15th, 21st & 22nd, skip a weekend, and then November 3rd, 4th & 5th.

As we get closer, as more is released, I’ll post about it. Until then…
