Announcing Typecast, a new webseries I’m co-developing with Mac Beauvais (strangelikethat).
Typecast is a comedy-drama following three LA-based actors all in different stages of their careers, all looking at where they are, where they’re heading, where they want to be… and what they’ll do to get there.
We have exceptionally lofty ambitions for the show, and we’ll be sharing a little more with you as we creep into the summer. In the meantime you can follow the show on these social networks:
Tumblr
Twitter
Friendster Facebook
Or you can shoot me an Ask, maybe I’ll provide cryptic answers to your questions. Or honest ones. Or no answers at all.

I am so excited to finally be able to announce this!

I’m hoping Marvel are building up to a punchline here where the poster for Captain America 2 will be Natasha looking fierce whilst Steve clings onto her.

*waits patiently for a drawing of that said image*

did I get the broken neck angle right?

I’d love to see this sort of poster looked swapped up. Hell, it would be nice to see a good superhero flick starring an awesome super lady.

Depression is humiliating. It turns intelligent, kind people into zombies who can’t wash a dish or change their socks. It affects the ability to think clearly, to feel anything, to ascribe value to your children, your lifelong passions, your relative good fortune. It scoops out your normal healthy ability to cope with bad days and bad news, and replaces it with an unrecognizable sludge that finds no pleasure, no delight, no point in anything outside of bed. You alienate your friends because you can’t comport yourself socially, you risk your job because you can’t concentrate, you live in moderate squalor because you have no energy to stand up, let alone take out the garbage. You become pathetic and you know it. And you have no capacity to stop the downward plunge. You have no perspective, no emotional reserves, no faith that it will get better. So you feel guilty and ashamed of your inability to deal with life like a regular human, which exacerbates the depression and the isolation.
Depression is humiliating.
If you’ve never been depressed, thank your lucky stars and back off the folks who take a pill so they can make eye contact with the grocery store cashier. No one on earth would choose the nightmare of depression over an averagely turbulent normal life.
It’s not an incapacity to cope with day to day living in the modern world. It’s an incapacity to function. At all. If you and your loved ones have been spared, every blessing to you. If depression has taken root in you or your loved ones, every blessing to you, too.
Depression is humiliating.
No one chooses it. No one deserves it. It runs in families, it ruins families. You cannot imagine what it takes to feign normalcy, to show up to work, to make a dentist appointment, to pay bills, to walk your dog, to return library books on time, to keep enough toilet paper on hand, when you are exerting most of your capacity on trying not to kill yourself. Depression is real. Just because you’ve never had it doesn’t make it imaginary. Compassion is also real. And a depressed person may cling desperately to it until they are out of the woods and they may remember your compassion for the rest of their lives as a force greater than their depression. Have a heart. Judge not lest ye be judged.
