On State Of The Art


This week, Jenn Scott and myself were on The Spy FM/KOSU Radio show, State of the Art hosted by Ryan Drake. With Valentine’s Day coming up, Ryan had me on to talk about date ideas while Jenn talked about her sex research study.

I had great time on the show with them! I know Ryan back from his improv days. I’ve even followed him around one day with my camera, making a demo reel of his comedy work. We had recorded this episode earlier this week on Sunday and it aired to the public on Wednesday. Be sure to check out State of the Art every Wednesday night at 8pm.

If you haven’t already, take a trip back time and read my Tuesday Treat interview with Ryan Drake about his debut stand-up comedy album.

Reflecting on 2015

Time for my end of the year post! While I didn’t accomplish all of my goals, 2015 has been a year of new beginnings and big changes. The biggest and best change: I got married!

What did I accomplish this year? I released the new and final date idea book, did two public speaking events, interviewed Billy Sims, got a new 4K camera, did a Mafia-inspired interview in the trunk of my car, video with Escape OKC, got married, started sharing more of my photography, started work on a feature length documentary, went house hunting, and started a new weekly web show! And those are just the major things I’ve done, not counting all of the interviews and articles I’ve written for Uncovering Oklahoma and my travels.

As for 2016.

The number 16 is one of my lucky numbers, as I born on the 16th of April.

My wife and I are moving to a new house next week. That’s a big change right there. I’m going to be working on improving my organization and focus, which this move will help.

I’m gunning to get my documentary film done in time for submission to the deadCENTER Film Festival. I know I haven’t shared anything about it here, but that’s because it’s such a work in progress and I would rather spend time working on it than hyping it. I’ll hype it later when it’s done and I’m waiting for it to premiere.

All the books and stories!

I’m looking forward to what I have planned for my weekly show, which this project wasn’t something I hadn’t even thought of doing, so who knows what I’ll end up doing in 2016.

I feel great about the future.

Christmas Special with Eggnog

It’s Uncovering Oklahoma Weekly’s First Christmas Special, which I’m so excited, I just can’t hide it, I’m about to lose control, and I think I like it because it includes the full production of Knockdowndragout’s Christmas sketch comedy show, Eggnog 666: The Nog of the Roast Beast! From the evil masterminds who brought you Eggnogs 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 comes the sixth installment of the wildly irreverent Christmas sketch comedy show, Eggnog 666: The Nog of the Roast Beast! I interviewed Emily Etherton, Cristela Carrizales, and Kendon Lacy, with the help of my wife throwing in questions too.

Watch this episode that captured a night of holiday hijinks, drunken elf karaoke, Santa Watch 2015, Round 2 of the North Pole Poetry Slam, and perhaps even the return of a favorite Eggnog celebrity.

With the interview, it’s almost two hours long! But it is two hours of comedy gold!

This episode idea came as an almost a spur of the moment thing. I had recorded shows for the group, Ghostlight Theatre (now Knockdowndragout), in the past, but it’s been a few years. I had some friends in this show, I wanted to see it, and reconnect with everybody. I called them them up and made them an offer to record the show and here it is!

Eggnog was a great show. Both my wife and enjoyed it. I hope you enjoy watching it too!

Have a Merry Christmas!

DNA Galleries Uncovering Oklahoma Weekly Episode 5

Dylan and Amanda Bradway of DNA Galleries in Oklahoma City’s Plaza District talk to me for Uncovering Oklahoma Weekly about their shop and gift ideas.

I managed to pull off this episode with short notice and time. I sent Dylan and Amanda a request for an interview the day before we did it and they were able to accommodate me. When I filmed this episode, I also did another interview with Dylan about the Plaza Walls for my feature length documentary. My deadline is coming up, and I’m fighting busy schedules and holidays to get it done in time to be submitted to deadCENTER.
