Midway through my hour with Merel, she told me I had it. Your copy is beautiful, you just have impostor syndrome. Gee, I do? I mean I do. I know I do. But does it even like me? Yes. Your inner impostor loves you. It loves the grip it has on you. It’s got bad romance...read more
This was supposed to be my epic post. A crisp, wow description of my method that would make everything clear in retrospect and especially forward. Which is why I could not write it for two weeks now. First I was sick. Then I had the dog over. And then I just couldn’t...read more
Name your best actor. What do you go for? King of the jungle Christian Bale types? Big bear action figures like Chris Hemsworth (think Thor)? Or comedian monkeys: the Seinfelds out there? The division, by the way, is not mine. Lorne Michaels, the creator of Saturday...read more

A smart hangout with brainy creatives. (Plus he’s how I discovered Krista.)
A podcast on excellence and the habits that take you there. And the unsung revolutionary behind my new morning routine.

Philosopher geeks with a taste for the classics: movies, books and superheros. I like. And give on Patreon.
Crisp videos on filmmaking and culture. Am a Patron. Je like again.
The Alpha and Omega. A cool way to get up to date with Aristoteles without reading 47 volumes.
Because I go gaga over creams, and blush, and lipstick.
