it's scary how much good you can do

This year, I’m attending EAC Network’s Halloween Party to Protect Children. It’s a fundraiser whose proceeds go directly toward the nonprofit’s Protecting Children Programs, which help thousands of at-risk children each year. Some of you are shy.

nightcaps + recaps

March 16, 2011


I’m posting from my phone because I realize how preposterous my blog upkeep has been this week. Forgive (and feel free to mock) the randomness that I hope to post from now through the night. SXSW is like pregnancy brain–only in lieu of a baby, you get blisters, dry-mouth + herpes. Sorry, but some of […]

It wouldn’t be that much of a stretch today, here at a Savannah Film Festival panel whose many panelists include producers and executives from the world […]
