Can’t Stop Me Now

Alex: I did it! Holy shitcakes Nik, I finished the FIRST draft of my pilot :)  I don’t even know how to tell you what I’m feeling right now. I’ve never been this far along on a creative project in my life. 54 pages. Read em’ and weep baby. I feel like I could run an entire marathon right now. Honestly, nothing could make me angry in this moment. I’ll prove it. Try to say something that you think will make me mad.
Nik: I can’t because I’m so freaking happy right now!
Alex: C’mon try!
Nik: Uh… I slept with Aaron Rodgers while I was in GB?
Alex: See? Not mad!
Nik: Yeah, that’s more high five worthy anyway. Seriously though, I’m so proud of you. Finishing a script is a HUGE accomplishment. You stepped up and you got it done.
Alex: It’s moments like this…


Alex: Not going to lie, Dangerdust inspired me today. My favorite is “Know how to spell a word more than one way.” – Mark Twain. Which one is your favorite?
Nik:  Um.
Alex: Chalkboard art doesn’t do it for ya?
Nik: Everything is just so nice now. I mean, remember the days when you’d go to school and there was a permanent marker dick on your locker?
Alex: Yeah, I was really into MASH. Did you ever play that game?

Love and Learn

Alex: Dating in LA sucks balls. I started seeing someone back in January.  It was refreshing to like someone again. From the first day we met we started a conversation that never ended. It was effortless and exciting. One of the first nights we hung out we found a huge tree on San Vicente, climbed to the perfect spot, and shared our first kiss. I was on cloud nine! I felt like I hit the jackpot, winning the lotto of love. Haha, that was so cheesy. Okay back to the story… At first it was all so easy. I would wake up to a ‘good morning’ text. We would talk on the phone for hours. The sex was wonderful. It was all too good to be true. Seriously.  A few months passed and I was left scratching my head wondering what the heck happened.

It’s Over Now

Nik:  Sometimes I just  have to write a poem to unblock the block…

it’s over now

cantankerous.  mortality.  flesh not flesh.
osteichthyes, chondrichthyes, agnatha, stench still of dead fish,
that consternation held dear hated friend,
for effect affected, left confusion,
abrupt erupting deep,
carcass, relic, trash can trophy, residue of impassioned passion,
fruit rotten, spotted grainy juice,

A Lesson I Want To Share

Alex:  My mother called me today. It caught me off guard, I wasn’t ready. As my phone was ringing I had an instant flashback to the last time we spoke: “I don’t want to see you, Alex.” It has been months since I’ve talked to her. The feeling of hope that she was her old self again took over. I was walking into my friends house when I decided to pick up the phone and ...

I’m obsessed with… Hard Knocks (HBO)

Nik: If you’re not watching this show. Do. It’s inspirational and the cameras take you into the manly wonderment of an NFL locker room. Some quotes from the last episode…

“No man fears to do that which he knows he does well. If you know what the hell to do you should have no anxiety about getting it done. You should be relaxed and be able to do it and get it done. With everything chaotic around you, you outta be able to focus and get it done if you know what to do inside and out.” – Marvin Lewis (Bengals Head Coach)

“All you can really do is stay ready and stay hungry. As long as there is an opportunity I’m gonna keep on chasing.” – Aaron Maybin (after he got cut)

Alex: Did you think dating was weird when you first moved out here?
Nik: I had a boyfriend who lived in Italy.
Alex: How’d you meet a guy in Italy?
Nik: I modeled in Milan
Alex: What? How did I not know this? You lived in one of my favorite Disney movies.
Nik: Milan, not Mulan.
Alex: Right.
