I named myself after this guy right here:



If I only could answer why I did that...

My wife gave birth to our second kid in the very early hours of Friday morning. Another boy. So yeah, my username is now officially based on my real life.
He held on. The dolphin and all the rest of its pod turned and swam out to sea, and still he held on. This is it, he thought. Then he remembered that they were air-breathers too. It was going to be all right.

Congrats! Now you have one to raise normally and one to experiment with.
That's some catch, that Catch-22.

Just like Pillowman!

Dude, I can't even remember what I had for lunch today.

Haha, I didn't think anyone from here read Martin McDonagh's plays.

Honestly, I'd never heard of it until I saw the production with Goldblum on Broadway. Was a fantastic experience. I guess I should read some more of his plays. Personally, I'm a Pinter fan.

Oh that's awesome man, I wish I could have seen it.
The casting sounds great.
How was the acting, if you don't mind me asking?

I just re-read it with those actors in mind and I can imagine Michael Stuhlbarg, Zeljko Ivanek and even Goldblum being perfect for their roles.
I only know Billy Crudup from Public Enemies but I hope he did well as Katurian.

As for Pinter, I haven't read any of his work but I'll have a look at it sometime.

It was several years ago, but from what I remember everyone was pretty good. Goldblum was just Goldblum. If you haven't read any Pinter before, I'd recommend starting out with The Dumb Waiter, although my personal favorite is The Birthday Party.
