My Whole Expanse I Cannot See…

I formulate infinity stored deep inside of me…

Well, I’m finally back from L.A. It really was an amazing trip overall, it will take awhile to really decompress everything. It’s been pointed out to me that I’m a “negative Nancy” of late, but I’m going to write how I write as long as I feel it. The trip was spectacular and horrible all at once. It’s actually really difficult to sort it all out and write it right now. It was the best terrible trip I’ve ever had.

The Emmys were more fun than I could have possibly imagined. This American Life won Best Non-Fiction Series and the episode about me won Best Directing thanks to the incredible work of Adam Beckman and Chris Wilcha. Everything that day happened so fast, it’s kind of a blur. We walked the red carpet with Ira, which was pretty surreal, everybody yelling and snapping pictures. I only really remember bit and pieces, I was totally nervous. I remember when they won the two awards, which was definitely spectacular. I’ll be honest, I really wanted to win something, to be a part of something so incredible. I saw the work they did, they deserved the recognition.

The after-parties were even better. The pressure was off, everybody was totally relaxed.  You know, I can’t write right now. I just can’t. For now, I’ll just let some pictures say everything.

    Geeze, sharp dressed man. I’m glad you were able to go, but most importantly, made it home safe. And congratulations on the wins. It was well deserved.

    Ah, I’m sorry you didn’t get the writing win. 🙁 BUT you -were- a part of something incredible! There would have been no episode without you. Congratulations!! 😀
