Aliens Among Us

Job Interview

An unexpected job interview provides an opportunity to over think ASD in the workplace.

Write What You Know

Or so they tell me… They keep telling me, write what you know. Which I sort of knew, but don’t, and seems easy to do, but isn’t. What do I know? I know how to be a perpetual outsider who looks like he’s not. Be nice. Go along. Get ignored. Fall through the cracks. BustContinue reading “Write What You Know”

Goals for the Week

Probably not a regular thing, but who knows? I’m attempting to be more organized about coming off the burn out. It’s difficult, because the burn out was partly about over reliance on organization and will power. Last week’s goal (about which I told no one) was to stop triggering myself constantly. I’ll give myself aContinue reading “Goals for the Week”

Worn Out vs. Burned Out

Working a Saturday and looking at some of the elements of both. I ended up working another Saturday on this HBO Max comedy series. This is not unusual towards the end of a season when you’re trying to keep a schedule and make deadlines. It does wear you out after a while, but that’s somehowContinue reading “Worn Out vs. Burned Out”

I Bought a Hat

Reinventing myself. A struggle with perception. I have a complicated relationship with clothing. I grew up in a family that had zero interest in appearances and mostly dressed us in the cheapest things available. There might be some perverse nobility in that but I do not recommend it for social, personal or professional development. MaybeContinue reading “I Bought a Hat”

Breakdown

A motorcycle riding course leads to problem solving revelations.

A New Beginning

In which we look for opportunities in the midst of chaos. 2020 has certainly been disruption on a scale unlike anything I’ve seen before. I’m not sure we know how to react to it yet, either individually or collectively, personally or culturally. Maybe, though, it’s an opportunity for new beginnings. One new beginning is IContinue reading “A New Beginning”

ASD & Epidemics

Maybe we can learn something about ASD from the COVID-19 pandemic?

Rain in LA

A low probability event. It’s raining in LA this morning. Usually, chaos ensues. It’s partly that people are not prepared for it and don’t know how to drive in it. It’s partly because the storm drains become instantly overwhelmed flooding roads and intersections. But it’s also very peaceful and gives a different vibe to theContinue reading “Rain in LA”

This Week on ABC

In which I finally get to edit an episode of US network television. Last Monday my episode of The Good Doctor aired in the US on the ABC network (Ep312 “Mutations”). This is the culmination of 3 years on the show as an assistant editor, after 5 years of revamping my career by moving toContinue reading “This Week on ABC”

Happy New Year 2020!

Since it’s 2020 I really want to write a tech diatribe on why we don’t have flying cars or real AI yet, but I’ll hold off on that. Maybe it’s enough to say we seem obsessed with the future in a way that devalues the present; indulging in vicarious chronological arrogance. Maybe it doesn’t helpContinue reading “Happy New Year 2020!”
