Some Good News
Two bits of good news:
I have two scripts that placed in the Landlocked Film Festival screenwriting competition. Black Family placed as a semifinalist and Well-Adjusted Boy is one of three finalists. On August 23rd they'll announce the winner of best in show, which could possibly be mine. Pretty cool.
I've become friends with a guy who is a UCLA grad in producing (he worked at Maguire with me). He just got a job as a manager for a company that both produces films and manages writers and he wrote me saying he'd love if I'd be his first client.

So is your "friend" going to become your manager? What exactly would he do for you?
Why didn't you play tonight?

Yeah, that would be the thought, he'd be my manager. A manager helps you develop your career, make sales, make connections, stuff like that. Kind of like an agent, but more personal. In Entourage, the manager is E. Ari is the agent. In Curb, Jeff is Larry's manager.
My legs are killing me every week, like I re-injure them in these muscles that are only used for extended sprints and kicking. I wanted to give them a real rest so I don't have to deal with it every week through the season.

jase-that's awesome! How exciting!
And for some reason, when I first type your name, I often end up typing "jaws" before I realize the typo...

well I guess it's good to keep some humility.
