Goals are deceptive - the unaimed arrow never misses.

Kimo’s Hawaiian Rules

Don’t step onstage with a goal or a plan. Be the unaimed arrow. Stay sharp and strike hard.

The record-breaking show is here! It’s ‘Little Women’ meets ‘Girls,’ it’s WOMEN Tuesday at 9:30pm!
Jo March really thinks she could be the voice of her generation….or at least, a voice of a generation.

This fast paced comedy introduces Louisa May Alcott’s classic, ‘Little Women’, to HBO’s critically acclaimed ‘Girls’, delivering a smartly crafted and hilarious 50 minute show.
New York Magazine’s approval matrix pegged it as “High Brow and Brilliant,” and Gothamist calls it “Hysterical.” Come see what all the buzz is about.

A video! About me and improv!

I work at Say Media, a digital publisher. Every so often, they spotlight an employee and his/her passion. When they picked me, it was a pretty easy call as to what my passion was. These are my co-workers in the workshop and the cast of “As The Bagel Turns” in the show. Some seriously great work by the production crew to make this thing.

As Jackson couldn’t fluently play any instruments, he would sing and beatbox out how he wanted his songs to sound by himself on tape, layering the vocals, harmonies and rhythm before having instrumentalists come in to complete the songs.

One of his engineers Robmix on how Jackson worked: “One morning MJ came in with a new song he had written overnight. We called in a guitar player, and Michael sang every note of every chord to him. “here’s the first chord first note, second note, third note. Here’s the second chord first note, second note, third note”, etc., etc. We then witnessed him giving the most heartfelt and profound vocal performance, live in the control room through an SM57. He would sing us an entire string arrangement, every part. Steve Porcaro once told me he witnessed MJ doing that with the string section in the room. Had it all in his head, harmony and everything. Not just little eight bar loop ideas. he would actually sing the entire arrangement into a micro-cassette recorder complete with stops and fills.”

Reasons why I laugh when people say he wasn’t a real musician.

Do what you gotta do to get your ideas out.
