  1. Wait, is that math right?

  2. Happy Thanksgiving to you, too, Nick–and to Lulu, too. And thanks for all the pleasure your blog brings me all year long!

  3. Merry Christmas Nick! Always enjoy your site. I’ve sent you a few bucks and received a neat acknowledgement. Seeing the video, you
    should consider being in a movie or two. Lulu looks like a happy pup
    but I can see she doesn’t talk, unlike my dog, Sophia. 🙂

  4. Fundraising= distasteful.

    • Ha, wait, why? Each post takes on average three hours minimum to put together, usually more for research and travel. Assuming three hour average times 125 posts last year, that’s 375 hours that could have been spent on forwarding my film career…and I feel that’s low. I started the donation system cause it meant that my site somehow tied in with my ambitions to become a director, and that those hours weren’t just being spent on a hobby. Makes sense to me – and my readers don’t seem to mind. In fact, the only people who have been weird about it are other NYC bloggers.

      • Pay no attention to the haters. I get way more value out of this site than pretty much any site that costs money – throwing a few dollars in your pocket is more than worth it.

        It’s like a PBS fund drive; the folks who want to watch for free can still do so, but for the rest of us it’s an opportunity to say thank you. Not like you’re forcing anyone to pay up. 🙂

  5. It’s been a pleasure donating for your film. I wish I could donate more, not only for the film, but in agreement for this wonderful site that makes me dream everyday. So keep the good work up, enjoy life and have a nice Thanksgiving!

    PS. You look very pleasant! Thanks for the vid.

  6. Yea, you’re right, I’m wrong. You do fantastic work on this site. Mea Culpa! Your movie should be tops.
