March Madness

The question I kept coming back to for the last couple months has been "To blog, or not to blog?" and sadly, I have chosen the latter option. It could've been the pressure to come up with the "perfect" post, or maybe just winter hibernation tendencies. But, all hope is not lost. Thanks to a polite nudging by the lovely Debbie Millman last night at dinner– We're back in the game! Spring is around the corner, and an abundance of life and energy seems to be just there under a thin layer, waiting for that first righteous dose of warmth and sunshine. Sooo ready for it.

The biggest news to date is James's DWR show next Thursday night (April 3) in Beverly Hills! He is unveiling his "American Badass" Collection of custom crafted surfboards, and it is sure to be fun, hot, fabulous, and everything L.A. Be sure to swing by if you're in the area. Here's all the info you need.
Also, be sure to check out DWR's newest edition of Design Notes!

AND, my vote for the coolest maddest place to be this July has to go to the SahreVictoreWilker design workshop. If you're up for an insanely fun time stretching your brain, definitely check it out! The deadline is May 1st, so don't drag your feet.

Latest inspirations to share:
David Mamet's new book "Bambi vs. Godzilla" – A brilliantly written account of the Movie Biz from the award-winning mega-rockstar writer/director

"The Last Picture Show" – A film directed by Peter Bogdanovich and based on the novel of the same name by Larry McMurtry. I've found McMurtry's writing to be the perfect medicine for a Texan stuck in the brutal New York City mid-February doldrums.

and, a longtime favorite, singer/songwriter/storyteller/all-around amazing guy Robert Earl Keen Jr. We've been playing a lot of his stuff in the studio lately. New stuff old stuff, it's all good.
