The Untold

Tagged as “The Untold Story of Tupac Shakur”… …but there was nothing “untold” about it. It felt like the writers went through the 2Pac Wikipedia entry and focused on the same RETOLD shit everybody’s seen over and over again – the East Coast/West Coast beef, the jail sentence, the shootings. Untold my ASS. No. This […]

Reinvention

The other day in class, I was acting out a scene with a young girl where I had to verbally abuse the shit out of her. I had fun with it and felt confident I had done a decent job of cutting loose. When it came time for feedback, the teacher was pretty positive but […]

Misclassification

Yahtzee

Went a lil “How Stella How Got Her Groove Back” on you the last time I wrote an entry and I can honestly say things have been on the up and up since then!  After 7 months out here, there are clear signs that I’m well and truly settled into Sydney: 1.  Falling asleep in the middle […]
