One day I went to lunch and never came back, on Mars

Tuesday, 31 May, 2016

It’s one thing to lose your job, but to lose your job in a place you cannot possibly leave, is another matter all together. This is the predicament that an explorer of Mars – who was sent to the red planet on a one way, no return trip ever, sort of undertaking – finds himself in.

I thought imaginary friends were meant to make life easier…

Thursday, 12 May, 2016

Imaginary Friend, a short film by Paul Briganti, because sometimes we all need a friend who is entirely of our own creation.

It’s actually a pilot presentation for an upcoming NBC, I think, TV series, but I hope more of the workplace, cheapo dates, is to be featured in the show… it was easily the funniest part of the story so far.

Can you live on bacon alone? We should at least consider this

Thursday, 12 May, 2016

Bacon is one of the most popular topics of discussion on the interwebs, so I generally leave the conversation to others.

Do you ever wonder what your dog, at home alone, does while you’re away at work? By the same token, does your dog ever wonder what you do, while you’re away at… work? I think the answer really only poses yet more questions.
