Let’s Talk About Fishing Instead of Big Hair & Milli Vanilli

I went to Nashville last week for my 20th high school reunion. That’s right, I graduated in 1989 when Milli Vanilli ruled the airwaves, and shoulder pads were such a source of power that they rivaled the potency of Samson’s hair. And while we’re on the topic of hair….apparently bigger was better back then. I [...]

Red Drum Roll, Please…

Ta-da-da-duh! It is with great fanfare that I announce some very exciting news. I have caught my first redfish. And for my next performance….I proceeded to catch a few more after that! After the film show wrapped up last week, a group of us traveled down to Port Aransas to chase after redfish and soak [...]

It Was A Stone Groove

Last night we brought the Film Tour to Texas in vintage South-Austin-style. And man, did we have a big time. We’ve been sold out since last week. People have been clamoring for tickets, calling the Drake and practically scalping & trading online. The beer was cold and started flowing early. The weather was gorgeous so [...]

From The FFC Legal Department

After my 2008 trip to Exuma I published a blogpost titled, “Is That A Bonefish In Your Pocket Or Are You Just Happy To See Me?” Now if there actually were an FFC legal team looking over my shoulder (ha!) I am pretty sure they would counsel me sternly to state that that I do [...]

Hmm, How Do I Say This Politely?

I AM KICKING YOUR ASS! Heavens, I am sooo sorry. How rude of me. I do not know what came over me. I suppose it was the sweet sweet smell of victory because as it turns out….I am kicking your ass! That’s right. You heard me. I am in the lead, poised for glory, drafting [...]

Even Bonefish Get The Blues

For one scintillating week our coterie of characters shed the coat of everyday armor and peeled away the mask of regular routine to dive into a counterculture escapade that involved chasing bonefish all over Exuma and floating on water so blue that our dreams will forever be tinted a certain shade of Bahamian azure. Our [...]

About To Be Exhumed

ex-hume — (verb) to revive or restore after neglect or a period of forgetting; to bring to light. (Oh yeah, and it also has that other creepy meaning…something about digging up a buried body.) Another year has eeked along and now it is finally here: my annual trip to Exuma with my parents. Of course [...]

Jalapeno Poppers Are Practically Kryptonite

I had this brilliant idea to roam around Austin with a video camera during South By Southwest, putting up FFFT posters while trying to catch a music celeb who might give us a little video testimonial to help promote the show. I thought I could film them saying something like, “When SXSW wraps up, pretty [...]
