Tyler Perry Presents The Rockettes

Is anyone else underwhelmed by the new Rockettes advertising this year? They're supposed to be lined up and kicking!

This year's poster is too relaxed. It looks like an advert for a Tyler Perry holiday movie about couples and their concerns. Why are we looking at Rockettes sitting down and chatting?

"I Don't Wanna Grow Up"

Tonight, I realized that the iconic "I Don't Wanna Grow Up" Toys R' Us jingle came from the Peter Pan musical.

Fun Facts from this commercial:

1. The first little girl you see is Jenny Lewis (singer-songwriter and childhood star of THE WIZARD) -- who I happen to share a precise birthday with (same date, same year).
2. The kid at 10 seconds is Scott Nemes, who was a prolific child actor in the 80s with roles in TWILIGHT ZONE: THE MOVIE and D.C. CAB. Now, he's the production head of Cinemax, which produces the television show THE KNICK, which I'm currently working on.

Updated commercial in the 90s:

Happy Turkey Day

I don't know what's so happy about it, really.

A subreddit that I help mod called "Puppy Smiles" just got featured as "Subreddit of the Day", if you're a redditor and follow such things. (I designed the banner and created the flair.)

I don't sleep. I have poor sleeping habits. I need to get back on track...

Now, watch this kid eat an entire Turducken:

What time is it...?

My last free week before I dive into the unknowable depths of my next gig.

Monday, I did laundry, dropped off pants to be hemmed (ready for pickup by Wednesday), hit up the Coinstar for some cash (about $44 -- would have guessed closer to $70 but I always take the quarters out for laundry), got a haircut, hit the gym, bought a curtain rod at Bed Bath Beyond, picked up a sound-dampening curtain from my local Amazon locker.

Tuesday, I'm going to install the curtain over my bedroom door to try to lessen the noise from the living room. Hit the gym. See a screening later.

Getting everything in order.
