Are bothering me, I keep waking up with these clear little bumps on my hands, that ITCH LIKE THE DEPTHS OF A THOUSAND FIREY HELLS.

After some quick research it turns out that its a form of eczema thats generally brought on by something you’re touching.

Greeeeeeeeat. I don’t touch gross disgusting things all the time or anything.

Off to the dermatologist I go.

In other news, life is good. I love the house, I love my fiancee. Things are moving along nicely, and we’re doing little upgrades here and there. Pictures soon I swear. I promise.


Things I heard sung, yes sung at work in the past two days…

(To the tune of Santa Claus is Coming to Town)


They’re making a list

They’re checking it twice

Deciding whose gettin’ laid off tonight

Oh the lay off man is coming to town


They know where you’ll be hiding

They know if you’ve been late

Oh, you’re gonna getta vacation..

Oh, a paid by New York State


The lay off man is coming to town



And this next one


Ooooh I’m gonna work, work, work 

Until I’m out of a job

Oh yes, I’m gonna work, work, work 

Until I’m out of a job



Followed up with a rousing rendition of “You’ve gotta be fuckin’ kidding me”


What? How? Why?

Oh hell.. 

Yeeeeesssss, You’ve got to be fucking kidding me

Kidding me, kidding me. 

Yes you’ve gotta be fucking kidding me, 

If you think it’ll work. 


And finally ending with “Simply Stupid” sung to the tune of “Practically Perfect” from Mary Poppins


Oh we’re simply stupid, in every way. 

We screw things up here, most every day


We’re simply stupid, on every show

If there’s a way to do this right, we’d never know..



Oh the things you hear working in a Broadway scenery shop.

Today at work…

I stabbed one of these

Into one of these


And for the first time in my life, got some of these


Its a beautiful day to be Dani folks.

So my survival of fashion week, was minimal. Frankly, That having been said, it was a great experience, and really my first uber professional entrance into this industry. It was a good learning experience. And it definitely helped my abilities as a Production Manager, and a Lighting Director. New England was eh. good crews in New Hampshire. Meh, not great, down home guy in Maine. But it all worked out, I’m back in New York, I’ll be in Vermont with them next weekend, and then Connecticut. And maybe, perhaps, possibly, a little bit, sorta, hopefully, if-ily, on a month long European tour with them in the fall. But thats so up in the air, it might as well be in orbit. That having been said, anyone who stops by this blog should make their way over to,  or and congratulate them on their new addition to the family, Owen Gregory.  

Its just soooo fashionable..
