I talked with my old friend Glenn Case about food, cattle & his new album.
Fiction: A Missed Calling
I don’t see the world the way other people do. Specifically, I don’t see other people the way other people do. When I look at someone, deep truth is laid bare. I see things that sometimes not even the closest friend or spouse of the person I’m looking at would guess. Sometimes things not even the person would guess. I see where they are meant to be. Vocationally, I mean. No matter what kind...

Attention TV Executives:hidden somewhere in my delightfully frenetic conversation with Andy Kindler there’s a pitch for a potentially very lucrative sitcom. Also, the Andy Kindler laugh is one of the greatest all-time laughs.
Work, Talent, Calling, Duty.
Work, talent, calling, duty. I think about these things a lot. They go all the way down to the core of how I see myself spiritually, personally and professionally. As a husband and father, my primary duty is to help provide a living for my family while contributing to the common good of my fellow humans. Like of most the creativity-driven people I know, I’ve spent a lot of time scheming...
Picture by @justsheano. I love “Star World!” Who could forget great characters like Tinbot-2, Darph Lady, Goldbot-3, Space Ape, the Antennae Troops &, our hero, Helm Sonic, pilot of the Maximum Saucer? I had all 12 of their Space Figures. “Hope the Power Helps You Out!”
To my sons, Aaron & Alex.
Alex, left, & Aaron, right, a long time ago. I was not much older than you are now when we had each of you. We had no clue what we were doing. We handled things with all the necessity and urgency of dealing with a beautiful house fire. I want you to believe that everything I’ve consciously done in relation to you has been motivated by seeking your good. I haven’t always been...

Artist Steve Lambert becomes the first member of the Jason Sims Puts You In Your Place Two Timer Club as we talk Africa, ice cream and ENERGY!
“There is at the back of all our lives an abyss of light, more blinding and unfathomable than any abyss of darkness; and it is the abyss of actuality, of existence, of the fact that things truly are, and that we ourselves are incredibly and sometimes almost incredulously real. It is the fundamental fact of being, as against not being; it is unthinkable, yet we cannot unthink it, though we...

Was happy to have Decatur,AL, musician, author & business guy Ronald A. Moore on to talk about ice theft, Venezuela & “Green Onions.” I also erroneously said he was my first Alabama guest.

You’ve just met me at a weird time in my life, Tumblr. I’ve felt pretty stretched thin and in a rut for some time. Plus, I turned 38 on Christmas Eve and my oldest son turned 18 in January.
