2008 Rewind: My best year ever

I'm loving 2009 which instead of looking at with this glum paranoia of "It's a resession! We're all doomed" instead with eyes looking towards the many opportunities that are on the horizon for so many of us.

The year started interestingly. A friend and I hit up a local bowling alley. He's 29 and had only bowled "with the Wii" which to me is just wrong, so it was time to hit up our local bowling alley. While the neon was dimmed and the alley played retro eighties music, I blew my party horn from 2008 into 2009 holding my balloon in the alley, ready for the new year.

2008 however, i'm sad to leave behind, because it truly was incredible.

There had been so much I had seen and done that year. I had done screenings in three different countries, countless press, lauched my production company which did not only a documentary, but also allowed me to get back behind the director's chair for a new music video. Travel wise, I had put my foot down in five different countries. We launched a whole new series with my awesome pals at the Fox, plus I saw some of those that I had given their break in television in, shine.

I had been on music video sets, operating rooms, Kosova mountain tops, Pennsylvanian highways, twenties era hotels, Finnish pendolino trains, and just shared so many great times with friends and family. All those around us truly touch us in ways, and I gotta say that I was surrounded by the best. All I can say is, thank you, for one of the best years ever.

Off the sentimental path, be sure to come back and visit here for an update on the Canadian premiere of HUNKA JUNK 6. I'm excited about the future, and wish you all the best for 2009!
