After a quick mental inventory, I just realized that I am currently working on 4 new plays, 4 movies and 3 musicals.

What the crap is wrong with me?

Subquestion: Why do I this to myself?

Subanswer/comment: I love that I do this to myself, and will probably continue to do so. I will continue to tell myself that greatness stems from the hysteria of business / pressure, until I earn the right to work on one thing at a time. At that point, I will probably have 70 grandkids and live in a cottage, but boy, what a great One Thing it’ll be.

nous sommes artistes

December 20th, 2009 by Bekah Brunstetter

Little did you know that Steve and I are Artistes. Steve went to Art School and I, in my youth, drew obscene amounts of pictures of girls in various dresses. Thanks to the beginners  acryllic paint kit I got Steve for Christmas, we were able to explore this side of ourselves. I, with a- uh – post-modern Mrs. Clause?


Please note that Mrs. Claus has no hands, thus, Mr. Claus is giving her Hands for Christmas. And Steve, with a worried Santa:


Perhaps he is worried that Mrs. Claus will not like his present? We will never know.

on Food TV

December 19th, 2009 by Bekah Brunstetter


Step outside of your Self for a moment, and watch your Self watch Food TV. What is it, exactly? It’s the most engaging thing, ever. It’s food porn. It’s like eating, but Not.

wearin my jealouspants

December 18th, 2009 by Bekah Brunstetter

green-pants-1500.jpgMy friends who work in or at theaters and for agencies and whatnot get a TWO WEEK HOLIDAY VACATION! I am so green! How hard work you work every year, knowing that it concludes with 2 weeks off paid? I would work super hard. Maybe? Also, they all deserve it about 200% as they DO work really hard are year, so my jealous pants are not kelly green, but more of a mint.

There is something nerve wracking about receiving large checks. I just received my first, for Oohrah! licensing. Yes, there was this immense feeling of YAY! and accomplishment and excitement. But then a weird paranoia. I could see the money turning into trips and piles of unworn sweaters and vodka sodas and crab cakes and leather chairs and Golden Tape Measure Bracelets and other items of interest. I could see the Student Loan monster devouring it like an appetizer. Or:  I could see it paying my rent while I write, but I could then see its sister, the neurosis of no steady income. I think the best thing to do, for now, is just pretend like it doesn’t exist – save it for a rainy day, or year, when I most need it?
