JTJ: Manilla Monday

It’s just another Manilla Monday. If you’re anything like me and have a hard time keeping track of your boatload of bills, accounts, passwords and so on because you’re much, much too busy remembering all of the extremely important and hardly important things you need to do for your boss or company, and have a self-diagnosed case of A.D.D. to boot, then this is the … Continue reading JTJ: Manilla Monday

JTJ: Music to Free Your Soul and Wallet

I find myself to be quite the little music aficionado frequenting live shows, constantly listening to Pandora, and always on the look out for new musical gems.  In the spirit of deals, I will add that Pandora is probably my number one way to discover new music being that it suggests similar artists or songs to the ones you already like.  Way to take the … Continue reading JTJ: Music to Free Your Soul and Wallet

Mommy Issues

As you know, I recently graduated from the Second City Training Center in Los Angeles.  You may not know though that such people as Steve Carell, Jim Belushi, Tina Fey, and Mike Myers, those nobodies, are also products of Second City.   So is John Paul Karliak, whom I was fortunate enough to be in class with and perform with him on stage.  Talk about talent.  … Continue reading Mommy Issues
