We live in scary times.

Pride's a funny thing. Apparently it's also a sin of the deadly variety.

If so, maybe I'm in trouble. I take pride in my job, I'm excited about the premiere this Sunday of the second season of our show, The IFC Media Project, and I'm really proud that...

Once in a while a great opportunity comes along when you are actually in a place to appreciate it. I'm lucky enough to be in such a place right now. In January, The Independent Film Channel (IFC) asked me to create a TV show that would reveal the true influences...
