pretty much my life everyday.
out of bed between 3:30-6 am depending on what time the background are in and how ambitious the call sheet is, at the studio super early, i’m usually the first in the costume shop, off 12-15 hours later, home to walk stella and maybe go for a run (only possible if I start work at 5 am and am home by 7pm latest otherwise i’m usually too tired and already thinking of the next day’s work) and in bed with maybe a glass of wine, the dog and netflix as soon as i’ve figured out the next day’s outfit.
i really only have time for coffee.
side note: the other day a particularly annoying person i work with asked me why i am single. the above daily schedule is why. i have no life, i work in episodic television.
I said to someone the other day — I don’t know who I was trying to kid — I said, “It’s not that hard being nice to people.” Which makes me sound like such a good guy. Then I thought about it later. And I thought, “No, it’s not that hard to be nice to nice people. It’s really hard to be nice to people who aren’t nice.” That’s work right there.
i have always had a bit of a crush on Win Butler and a girl crush on his wife Regine. they are the coolest people in the music biz in my opinion, talented, and completely original and i have been a big fan since i first heard Funeral when it came out a decade ago. i saw Win DJ a few weeks ago at a smallish club in Toronto, and he was great. he danced and mingled with the crowd a little at the end of his set and i had the brief pleasure of him dancing beside me and giving me a thank-you smile and handclasp (it wasn’t a shake, littlerally a handclasp) when i told him how i enjoyed his set. it was a cool moment. celebrity without the celebrity. imagine that.
Sprawl II (Mountains Beyond Mountains)
early Saturday morning. I’m watching Lawless wrapped in a fuzzy blanket on my parents couch drinking coffee.
this thanksgiving I’m thankful for a loving family, my beautiful dog, my wonderful friends, music that gets me through the hard days, and Tom Hardy.
I mean just look at him. I’m pretty sure he’s the perfect man.
I keep thinking I would like to go
veg. I’m watching the season premiere of my show and one of our leads is vegetarian and he’s inspiring me.
I keep thinking of this joke our transpo coordinator told me.
Q: How do you know someone is a vegan?
A: Because they fucking tell you.
I don’t know why I find this so funny but I do.
Because it’s true.
No offence vegans!! I don’t know how you do it but I admire you so! Ice cream! Cheese! I mean really French stinky cow milk cheese. I’d die without it. Chocolate. I’d literally DIE without it.
But that said, I’m making healthful changes.
After I drink this glass of wine and smoke this. So…tomorrow. I’ll make healthful changes tomorrow.
I learned to fickle blog from Ryan Adams.
I do it really well now, as I’ve been practicing.
Some things were made to be felt

I should’ve died a hundred thousand times,
Teetering stoned off the side of a building.
Nobody loved me and nobody even tried
You can’t hang on to something that won’t stop moving.
Singing and dancing to them nighttime songs.
