Joseph Faraday Ep. 3: The Son of Science!

I write and produce a comedic sci-fi radio play, which airs on Temple University’s Comcast Channel and streams online. The show is called Joseph Faraday: The Temporary Resident of the Universe and the third episode is airing today! This one was a lot of fun to do, because instead of our hero battling famous scientists,…

Conspiracy Dave: Hacked Photos

Hello. Hell-o. Hell. Oh. As in: Hell? Oh. How did I get here? Guess I shouldn’t have murdered that hobo two years ago, said Donald Trump in a memo sent out to the shadowy, world dominating Organization in which I was once a member. Except it wasn’t a memo so much as written on the…

Okay, so, let me know if you find the following scene rather absurd: – Sam Watson enters the hotel room as three armed bodyguards try to stare him into submission. But their icy glares fail to coax even a drop of sweat out of the spy. The preparation behind this moment took months. And with the target-…

Elizabeth Gilbert on Creative Genius

Short post today. I recently sat down again to listen to a TED Talk given by Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Eat, Pray, Love. She talks about the creative process, how writers deal with inspiration and toughing it out when that creative spark just doesn’t seem to light. This is my absolute favorite TED Talk and I…
