So I’m sitting here at the Filmmaker’s Lounge feeling a bit like, how should I say, a fish out of water? I attended the Red Carpet, opening night film, and opening night party. This is my first Sarasota Film Festival and my first, shall we say, “brush with fame.” It wasn’t at all like I expected. First of all, there was no Jon Hamm. Nowhere to be found. Naturally, I began the evening in a state of devastation and did my best to hold back tears. I was expecting to [...]Read more ›

I didn’t watch ABC’s Lost. The word “watch” implies a detached, passive activity in which a person sits in front of a screen and interprets pretty lights and curious noises coming from a fancy box.

I didn’t watch it right off the bat—I sat on the [...]Read more ›
Okay, let me clear the air. I didn’t hear the rumor about Jon Hamm coming to the Sarasota Film Festival (SFF) from the SFF. I heard it from a contact I have inside the hospitality industry, and I don’t know if it’s true. The SFF will announce the official guest list on March 19, but as of now, they’ve stated that know nothing of the sort. They didn’t want me to get your hopes up, Sarasota. Actually, the SFF didn’t want an angry mob torching its office when you slept in the [...]Read more ›
I was a late bloomer, and I thank my lucky stars every day that I was. I’m from a small town in Mississippi between New Orleans and Biloxi. We’re famous for meth, teenage pregnancy and spawning Brett Favre. I was a straight-A student and champion swimmer. When the other kids were going to dances and proms, I was swimming 300 laps a day and winning science fairs. I didn’t kiss a real boy until senior year. On Sundays, my only day off, I had an almost religious habit of going [...]Read more ›
