I went to see Irrational Man at the famous Angelika Theater in Soho. When I arrived I was a tad scared as I saw a huge line outside the theater. Maybe, I was channeling my inner Woody Allen — you know the scene in Annie Hall where he almost has a heart attack when an arrogant loudmouth behind him is giving his two cents on a director’s newest picture. Anyways, I came soon to find out that the line wasn’t for the movie. I pleasantly asked the clerk for one ticket to the 7:15 showing.

Morning Musings For A Writer’s Block Wednesday

I’m not much of a writer.  I know it’s shocking since this is only my second story here and the new guy JP is knocking out new stories faster than “Iron” Mike used to knock out opponents –quickly.  It’s nothing new writing was never my thing.  Maybe it’s a self fulfilling cycle since I don’t see myself as a writer and I’ve come to believe it.  Or maybe I just don’t have much to say.  I don’t know.
