Proofs in the mail always feels like Christmas morning!
Final press proofing the complete 9-Book, 200-page Season 1 Box Set for HITRECORD ON TV. It’s pretty good, guys.
Last night, in a city that has wooed me over the last decade, I set a table, with the collaboration of a profound designer, two out of this world creatives, a ridiculously talented bartender, and an intuitive photographer. Eighteen people gathered around one table on my porch by the river, where we ate and drank together.For as long as I can remember, it is meals like this that have been a dream of mine. I dream of tables—the meals that can be had on them and the possibilities of experiences we can share with friends and strangers. This communal table was a thrilling and humbling experience and the first of many, I hope.I spent today cleaning the multitudes of plates and glassware and reflecting on the evening while catching up on the most recent episode of Mad Men. In this episode the character of Peggy Olsen is presenting a pitch to Burger Chef in which she states, “….and you’re starving and not just for dinner. What if there was another table?…and we can have the connection that we are hungry for.” So, with my thoughts and the words of Peggy, I invite you to The Table, a New Haven supper club.
So happy to see this come to fruition!

Another common dream is the one where you’re dreaming that you need an acting reel to submit for some big opportunity that could make your career. It’s incredibly stressful though because you’re not an actor and therefore, you have no past work to use for the reel.
However, you DO have a friend with a camera and you DO know about an abandoned apartment where a bunch of dogs live. Maybe you could do a show about a man who plays a kind of father figure to a bunch of dogs that live in an apartment?
The one and only episode of “Dog Dad” is a more serious episode, where the dogs learn about the process of being put to sleep. At least, that’s what you think is happening because when you get home from work, all of the dogs are running around and barking like crazy. In a particularly heartfelt moment, you gather the dogs in the living room and tell them that they are in no immediate danger of being put to sleep and that you will do everything you can to protect them.
You say something like, “The only thing you dogs need to worry about is working at your dog jobs or going to that school for dogs.”
Remember: This is a world where dogs have credit scores and can live and hang out as functioning individuals. But still: Did the dogs understand? We let the viewers decide.
Your friend is able to edit together an entire acting reel from the single episode. It showcases several different physical looks as well as a wide range of emotions. He drives you to the big acting audition just in time.
Usually, this is the part of the dream where you wake up, but if you stay asleep, the dream ends with some reviews of “Dog Dad”. They are mainly favorable with one major outlet going as far as to rank your performance among the bravest and most vulnerable she’s ever seen.
When you wake up, you discover that you, the dog, and your friend have wet the bed.
