Tim J. 2016 – Part 1

PolarBear_06First up in the first quarter of my 2016 is a new 10-minute play written for the 52nd St. Project’s next show: The Nick of Time – The Punctual Plays. My play is called “Polar Bear Service & Repair,” a buddy, roadtrip comedy starring Adam & Justin,  two of my favorite kids who are members of the Project, and directed by Sean Kenealy.

Internet “Famous”

Sometimes I ride my bike to work. My work is near the Daily Show’s Studio, and today I saw this:

It’s definitely part of Jon Stewart’s Daily Show set and this part is definitely NOT going to the Newseum in D.C. My sleuthing says it’s the piece to the right of Jon’s desk, over where the correspondents would do their green screen bits, as seen in this photo:

Anyhow, I ‘grammed it and Facebooked it (typical for me). I also hashtagged it #DailyShow (atypical for me). And next thing I know I’m getting emails from Gothamist and follow requests from the Daily News. (And my WordPress viewing stats are WAY up today).

And then Gothamist published it, so now, I guess you can say I’m a published news photographer.

Not a bad way to start off a week, I guess.

(Next goal: To be a PAID news photographer. Le sigh….)
