Hey gang, I’ve been writing a bunch of new stuff.  Here’s a few things you might wanna check out.

GUEST BLOG:Gentlemen, To Your Collaboration Stations.” A behind the scenes look at creating CAPTAIN SPACESHIP. Written for La Hacedora ~ The Creatoress ~ La Creatrice, the website of Daniela Smith-Fernández, who did all the probs and costume work on the show.

WEEKLY STORY: “The Ballad Of Frank Allen” an ongoing story about a tiny man that lives in my friend Al’s beard. For Bloody Underrated.

I also highly recommend checking out Matt’s Dream Journal.

Finally, here’s a half finished work for an up coming SPIN CHORUS project.

Peace.

2012 THE EPIC YEAR OF EPICNESS

2 01 2013

Holy Kites you guys, where did the year go? 2012 was year of BIG things, big moves, big changes, big tours and BIG shows! This year was full of surprises, travel, success, failures and meeting some of my new favourite people in the world and missing those favourites I haven’t seen in a while.

I won’t take up too much of your time (I’m actually surprised you’ve read this far) but here’s a few highlights of what happened at Zack Adams HQ. I hope you like hyperlinks.

  • Revamped the first ever Zack Adams show
  • Finished off a 6 year stint at Starlight with a life-changing 4 week visit to The NT

  • I wrote a bunch of tour blogs for Bloody Underrated
  • I moved to Montreal.
  • My Aunt kicked cancer in the balls, I became a godfather, my baby brother got engaged, my dad bought a pinball machine. I liked all of these things very much.

  • I lived out one of my dreams by starring in The Rocky Horror Show with the best cast ever
  • I started working with MSTC and we have a damn good time

  • I hanged around at Mainline Theatre, A LOT. Broke some people’s dreams during the Fringe Lottery.
  • Was chuffed to add spatterings of backing vocals to recordings by Maya Malkin and Emily Skahan (Both from the awesome band Motel Raphael)
  • I saw snow for the first time.
  • I bought a HUGE jacket long johns and winter boots as to “not die”
  • I drew a lot of stupid little drawings, sold them at EXPOZINE!
  • I cracked 10,000 tweets.
  • Ate a lot of toast
  • Drank a lot of these
  • This thing
  • Made the stupidest yet (not surprisingly) most popular video on my channel.
