What Is This?
Well, for starters, it's a website. Which is a page on the internet. Surely you knew that.
Beyond that, it is my website. A virtual place to put all of my writing, my music, my gangly, ugly, desperate-to-be-loved creations. And they won't be alone: I'll also post the creations of collaborators, artists I admire, and people I find genuinely worth sharing. Think of this as somewhere I can post and organize all of these thoughts—or those things vaguely resembling ideas—and you, glorious you, the reader, the listener, you can read and listen to them! Isn't that wonderful? Think of all the fun we can have here! I am of the belief that this will be a splendid adventure for all of us, you and me and her and even you over there! What could possibly go wrong?
Why Is This?
Another great question, dear reader. This exists because, you see, I have these notebooks, see, and I have ideas in those notebooks—stay with me—and I have turned some of them into things that exist outside of those notebooks and I want to share them with you. Some of them have taken shape as scripts, for shorts, for TV shows, for plays and musicals and all that jazz. Others find themselves in the form of short stories or blog posts or whatever else I stumble my way into.
Also: because why not, that's why. Smart-ass.

Right. Cool. But who is this guy again?
