Taking Photos With Canon EOS Rebel SL1

Canon has loaned me a Rebel SL1 and I took this photo of Leo in the kitchen. He’s not supposed to be in the kitchen. That’s why he looks guilty.

Mulaney Observed

This is NOT a review. This is an observation, but not observational funny. Episode 2 of Mulaney was way better than the pilot. I am not a single-camera snob. A multi-camera sitcom can be just as funny. I remember having brunch about three years ago in the Village, and I got to sit next to [...]

I Have Been Rooting For Judy Greer

I don’t like FX’s ‘Married‘ as much as I wanted to. I am a big fan of Judy Greer and thought this sitcom might be her breakout role. However Lina and her husband Russ (played by Nat Faxon) are a pretty unlikeable couple. They are late thirtysomethings with three daughters living in Los Angeles. They [...]

Joan Rivers, You Can Rest Now

Joan Rivers passed away yesterday at the age of 81. She didn’t just fade away. She worked until the end. She was a legend that never got too comfortable. She was a woman who never stopped creating. She was an inspiration.

Document Your Truth

Just watched the Kathleen Hanna documentary, The Punk Singer, on Netflix . I learned so much about the Riot Grrrl scene from the film. I didn’t really know about it in its heyday since it wasn’t on the radio and I didn’t know anyone listening to it. The closest I got into riot grrl was [...]
