Irrewind, 20101002: Driving

For a lot of people (if not most), daily driving is a necessary evil. It can be nerve-wracking, laborious, and downright boring. But, for a lot of people, driving until the end of the road is a quite liberating and peaceful experience.

Regardless, I've had a lot to say about driving.

"Driving, Voting, and That Thing Called High School"
Think about it, there's absolutely no reason that 16-year-old Billy Bob and his cross-town nemesis, D-Bone and the Funk Mafia should be driving to school and raising my insurance rates and automobile taxes.

"Bad Drivers I: The Nervous Old Woman"

Irreview, Book Review: The Nutshell Technique

I have, to date, read well over two dozen books on screenwriting and its related mediums (theatre, specifically).  While most - if not all -...
