    This picture was taken before I knew I was going to be a character actor. Every disaster, at one point, looked like a success. Unfortunately, every success also can look like disaster. That’s why there are so many bars in New York.

Love the Weekly Release Schedule!

Been listening since episode one (on the radio, of all things?)

I feel like I have a new friend

I discovered this podcast a few weeks ago and have started listening back at the beginning in 2009-10. I imagine this is how people felt looking forward to a beloved radio show back in the days before tv. I can’t wait to hear the next story and feel like I have a new friend. Stephen Tobolowsky is a gifted and witty storyteller, a gentle spirit, a passionate actor and lover of theater and film, a down to earth fellow Texan, and I love the little bit of a laugh he has to suppress when relating a particularly amusing or crazy detail. Listening to these stories brings me joy. I also now want to watch all his old movies!
