It’s late…I guess? (cocks an eyebrow at the clock)
I’m sitting in my office, in the studio that I always wanted and thought I’d never have. It’s dark and quiet. Sort of lonely and surreal, but comfortable. Just me and the music and the refrigerator – of which I make frequent trips to. That garlic humus, man… it's delicious.
I’ve been thinking about a lot of shit lately, and I’ve decided that I’ve been overthinking things to an extent that is unhealthy and unproductive. I’ve gotten too far away from the here and now and too far away from myself. In a short amount of time. Which, is unlike me. I need to get grounded again. Get back to my roots...
That starts with me cutting ties to some lofty and projected thoughts I’ve been hanging on to for a while now. Some things you just need to let go of, I guess, no matter how much it’s going to hurt. I need to get myself centered again. I’ve been tugged in so many different directions, as I’m sure many of you out there have experienced in this life. No more of that. No, it’s back to the chopping block for me. There’s some prime rib that needs my attention – every bit of it. We’re going to carve it up real nice like, throw some of our exceptional flavors on it, cook it just right, you know, and deliver it to some hungry folks and they’re going to want more when it’s gone. Bet your ass on that.
Yeah, it’s a weird analogy. I know. But I like it.

A few days ago, we released the trailer for our original film noir, The Picture Room (IMDb). So far, it’s been pretty well received by everyone. If you haven’t seen it yet, check it out below. Go behind the scenes and see some beautiful posters and photography done for the film at: http://www.thepictureroommovie.com
I couldn’t be more proud of the team that worked with me on this one. I’m humbled, really.
