amazingI have the most amazing support network around me. Jenny Frost Previous Post I got to work with Jennifer Tilly, she was amazing. Such, such a smart actress. Next Post Anger dwells only in the bosom of fools. I think Gina Rowlands is an amazing actress. Obviously, there’s the seedy side of the strip club world and pole dancing. But, pole dancing, as an art form, is really beautiful. It’s been hyper-sexualized because it’s associated with strippers, but if you think about it, just in terms of other kinds of dancing, they’re using an instrument to create these amazing dance forms. The fact that I even get in Broadway shows is, to me, still amazing, but then to win a Tony was just incredible. I just feel energized when I am around young, talented people. There is something about these kids that’s amazing. I learn as much from them as they do from me. It’s amazing that something only an atom thick can be an impenetrable barrier. You can have gas on one side and vacuum or liquid on the other, and with a wall only one atom thick, nothing would go through it. I listen to every thing, all kinds of stuff. I’ve been obsessed with the Nas and Damian Marley record, ‘Distant Relatives.’ I feel like a lot of people haven’t heard it, and it’s amazing. I enjoy looking at words on paper and visualizing how to make them come to life. As a director, the creative process is really amazing. It’s so amazing, standing on the corner -this happened in Washington, D.C. – and somebody comes by in a Cadillac and you hear ‘Manic Monday’ on the radio, and you don’t even know this person, and they’re listening to it and singing along with it. Wow! Blows your mind. The past 6 and a half years have been the most amazing years of my life. It’s sad it has come to an end but Avril and I are still family and moving forward in the most positive way possible.
