My kids and I were watching the historic upset of UCLA over Michigan the other night (UCLA making its way to the Final Four as an 11-seed, whoa) (March Madness, obvi) when I suddenly heard one of the guards referred to as Jules. Which is a pretty unusual name for a dude these days....Continue reading
So I joined NPX (New Play Exchange) a while back but didn’t do much with it at first. It’s kind of a lowkey form of playwriting social media, I guess. You post info about yourself and can upload plays and reviews and things too. A publicity tool. At some point I saw someone had...Continue reading
Taking a look back at these goals I posted in November, how’d things work out… GOAL: Write a new experimental short play for The Fling the weekend of November 21st RESULT: Done. Actually wrote two plays. The first one was convoluted across multiple online platforms. I decided it was too messy and in the...Continue reading
Each of the past 4 years, my oldest kid has been participating in a national cyber-security competition where they try to find flaws in various computer system platforms. His team has done a little better each year, and this year they made it to the national finals, the first Texas high school team to...Continue reading

There weren’t too many negative after-effects either, which is great news. Thanks for organizing it, Camille! Sure, I’d do it again. Still think another...Continue reading
This isn’t nearly as impressive as I feel like it should be, but I’ve had moments of excitement imagining what it’d be like to have long hair over the last several months. I still haven’t been able to replicate where I was at age 4, but you never know. It’s getting old, but I’ll...Continue reading
Guess I must be feeling optimistic about the year ahead. Here are some ideas about what to put on for the next FronteraFest (a year from now?): Snatch and Release: This is a script I already have, and intended to feature at a variety show last summer, about a punk band that has to...Continue reading
That’s right, another decimal-place-laden post. This was the goal for mid-December. It was difficult and tiring – but satisfying too. Planning for the half marathon at year’s end. Then maybe I’ll take it down a notch....
