My latest piece on Tribeca Shortlist Outtake was inspired by the brilliant documentary Gonzo: The Life And Work Of Dr. Hunter S. Thompson, directed by Alex Gibney. Thompson was and remains a hero of mine. Authentic swagger (which he seemed to have had in spades) is irresistible – and it’s not to be confused with insecure arrogance or empty boasting.
VERY honored to be contributing to the Outtake blog over at Tribeca Shortlist. Here’s my first piece: Comedian Eddie Izzard has a brilliant monologue that poses the question, “Cake or death?”—a joke that hinges on how some choices are pretty obvious, or at least, a lot easier to swallow than their alternatives.
