LAST WEEK'S CHICAGO PD

The previous post was simply of photos taken the day of shooting. And here is the end result, you can see me in about four frames and that was my ten hour work day. I need to play catch-up and in the next day or so I'll be posting photos from CHICAGO MED.

LAST NIGHT'S CHICAGO P.D.

NBC owns my soul now, so I can never talk about the various shows I am on until after they air, but here are a few shots from last night's episode of CHGO PD. In my scene, I am on a pay phone talking to my bail bondsman. We were filming in August, but it was autumn on the show, so I was wearing thermal wear when it was 89 degrees out.

SURPRISE GUESTS AT BAD GRAMMAR THEATER'S FIFTH ANNIVERSARY!

The ever beautiful Noemi Perez and the gruff but likeable Eli Diaz showed up to hear me get up to the podium and read the current installment of TIME CLOWN. I worked with Noemi and Eli on a film by the versatile yet huggable Will Adams, STEP OFF THE BLOCK. It was because of this film that we all started getting work on the Dick Wolf shows filming here. CHICAGO FIRE, CHICAGO MED, CHICAGO PD, and the newest, CHICAGO JUSTICE. Here are the photos. Noemi and Eli sat in the back row, worried that the crowd closer to me would throw rotten fruit when I read.

THE DAMEN SILOS ON CHICAGO PD

Little did I know that there is the body of a man who was executed buried near the silos, at least in the world of CHICAGO PD. This past Wednesday, the episode was called "The Silos". They held grain until a fire in 1987 left them both condemned. I call them the Damen Silos because there are right off the Damen Avenue bridge and I'm one to believe that everything should have a cool name. Here are some photos I took last October.

SO THIS WAS STRANGE

Purchased from eBay with apologies from the original owner, I bought a copy of THE HOLY TERROR. But I really wanted what came with it, a copy of GRUE#7, which has my story "I Am The American Dream" in it and of which I somehow do not have a copy. ALSO!!!!! A letter to Alan Clark from me on my original manual typewriter letterhead. ALSO!!! A flyer to join the Guardian Angels.

PRINTERS ROW JUNE 2016

I didn't have anything to sell, but I do try to run into as many people as I can with businesses cards people can use as bookmarks. This year I ran into Mark K. Braun, who has put a great deal of work into formatting the upcoming RAPID TRANSIT: 30 years of short fiction by Crossroad Press. He introduced me to Laura Enright, author of TO TOUCH THE SUN. I also ran into Jay Bonansinga and Jill Norton. Took me awhile to get the photos onto my computer.
