I had a two day class with highly renowned acting coach Bob Krakower. I have pretty much no foundation in my experience thus far with only a small few other classes that includes a prior one with Mr. Krakower. In my time I’ve met many individuals with prior experience in theater, television, and other extensive training and backgrounds.
Seeing us all come together in such a fascinating experience because no matter how much everyone has done and no matter how talented these people already are, we all endure the same learning process. For me, it felt like being reduced to tenth grade when I was learning proofs in trigonometry. We would tell Mr. Tunick, “It’s easy when you do them with us but it’s so much harder on our own”. Bob’s take on looking at scenes proves to be unconventional as he doesn’t like to use traditional terms like “objective” and “obstacle”. He just looks at what is actually happening. When he shows us what was sitting under our noses on a piece of paper we share the same feeling of “Oh! I see.”
I revel in the feeling of enlightenment when I leave his class. Sadly this higher feeling leaves me after a couple of weeks. Thank you Bob, for all that you teach. I look forward to my next learning experience from this man.

Why does my cell phone text mode, Word (aka T-9), insist on giving me “haga” when I want to type “haha”? What word even remotely sounds like it would begin with the letters “haga”?
Too many sports posts. This is not a sports blog. This is a blog about sports. Wait, that doesn’t get my point across.
“Braylon edwards a jet… He better do work”…”Edwards’ for stuckey, another dude and 2 draft picks”…Upon waking up to these texts from my brother and friend informing me about this trade, I remember how often I dislike waking up with my first words of the day being, “goddamnit”.
I’m skeptic because of Edwards’ shite numbers from the last two years as a pro-bowler plus playing Madden made me more of a fan of Chansi Stuckey. On top of that I don’t think Edwards is worth two of NY’s draft picks (they now have the 3rd and 5th round picks).
But why can’t this work? In my farfetched perfect world, Lebron would still be P.O.ed at Braylon and because he’s such an antagonizer he would lure Lebron to a club in New York where the Knicks will be waiting and scoop him up to fulfill the dreams of the great, deranged basketball fans left in NY. A Knicks’ and Jets’ fan can dare to dream can’t he?
