I Did It

OBSRVTNS: November 30th, 2015


This week was amazing. I had an awesome Thanksgiving with my family at the beach. Thanksgiving is the only real holiday that I get into, mainly because it’s centered around food and gratitude rather than religious institutions or buying shit. I like buying shit and I tolerate religious institutions but I like food and family better. My dad was a little sick and it was cool because I got to take care of him, something I rarely get to do. He’s the strong stoic type.

I was a little overwhelmed and stressed because I was preparing a story for the RISK! Storytelling show. RISK! Is a live storytelling show they do in L.A. and around the country that also gets recorded as a podcast. I’ve never really done anything on stage before, so I was nerve wracked. I must have told the story a dozen times, until my throat was sore, arranging and rearranging the pieces. Luckily I had the show runners to help me and of course Daniel Fucking Knauf who rules shit.

The show went amazing. I think I nailed it. But it was my Thanksgiving because of the number of friends who came out in support of the show. I’ve never felt so loved and supported as I did last night, because you know what, driving into Hollywood on a Saturday night is fucking awful, but they did it, that all did it.

As soon as the podcast goes live I’ll include a link here.

Eddie Pepitone

This week’s guest on OBSERVATIONS with Sovereign Syre is Eddie Pepitone, the Bitter Buddah. We talk about the state of society today and the root of insecurity and anxiety. Eddie has been a favorite of mine for a long time and I was so happy to get the chance to talk with him about my own problems, because well, what else do you talk to the Buddah about?
