I know, I've been a bit behind on the promotion
for the LA show. No offense, but feel free to
bite me. Once you see the DVD you might
understand where my time went...
honored so many of you out here in LA are so
genuinely excited for the show. You're certainly in
for a treat if the Columbus audience is any
indication. So here's the rundown on the show next
at Third Stage in Burbank where I've
performed about 4
Those times I was always the closer to an
"Improviders" show (a group I was
part of for a short amount of time until
things just got way too hectic). On 10/1
however I have the whole night. I'll be
doing both Part 1 and 2 back to back
starting at 8 PM - a full 60 minute show.
Seating is most certainly limited, but
I think we'll be alright. Sold quite
a few seats already, do if you're planning
on coming though - please email me about
reserving your seats. I would hate to
have people miss out.

The DVDs will be
on sale as well - $20 for one, or $35 for both. As
I've mentioned before I'm EXTREMELY proud of both
discs and I'm already laying out plans for the third
and final part of the trilogy next year.
I mentioned that? Wow - I may have skimmed
over that. The whole layout of 4tvs for the next
couple of years? Osmosis doesn't work well over the
So yeah, the third
installation of The Trinitrons will be the final one.
Basically, the entire thing is done in my head -
writing a detailed description of each section at the
moment.... and it's the way to end it. I thought
there'd be more - but I really want to move on a
bit. I know these three shows will stand out and each
have their own feel and be equally as unique/creative
and fun - but the end of part 3 is just so perfect....
It has to be. As an editor, no matter what I may feel
creatively, I know how to cut it right....and
this is it. So most likely September 9th, 2004 will be
the premiere of the final Trinitron 4tvs
Now, in about 20
years, when I'm nearin' 50 - There will be the
reunion. Oh hell yes there will. But don't hold your
So what next for
4tvs? The Journey. It will (by that time) have been
delayed for 3 years. I wanted it out in the fall
of 2002 - and it will be the fall of 2005. It will be
quite a departure as the humor will only be secondary.
It's gonna be a very dramatic piece for sure. Mainly
dealing with what happened in early 2002. The songs
and stories during that time have such an incredibly
dramatic feel - and so much of what I was going
through is on tape...it lends itself to a very special
one-man show - especially with 4tvs.
Also in 2005,
"Imaginate". Finally a PG show. Heh. I've wanted to do
this for years and now that people have been asking
for it - it's time. I actually want to do a KIDS
show - (under 10) because talk about a captive
audience. Man I could have a ball with a bunch of
7 year olds - hell EVERYTHING is magic to a kid,
so 4tvs (which has screwed with many adult's heads)
will be friggin' Copperfield to a kid. The potential
something that will easily take the next 3 or 4 years,
a screenplay idea that is so unique, so perfect that
I'm willing to stop doing everything and write it.
Knowing full well I could never shoot it,
probably never star in it, and never see it get made
for years and years and years... I actually
pitched it to my dad a bit while we were waiting for
my plane at the airport. It was in explaining it to
him that it really hit me just how intriguing the idea
is. And from my perspective out here - how incredibly
sellable it is. I honestly believe I could
write one logline (a sentence describing a movie) that
would make any studio be interested. It's never been
broached before, and has such HUGE potential for
imagination, new thoughts/ideas, incredible personal
relationships all set in a modern-day society with one
twist. That twist throws the craziest perspective on
things. It's something I plan to sit down and start to
outline later this year while I'm writing
So right now on my
plate, T3, The Journey, Imaginate, and the screenplay.
And of course that's free-time after the full-time
job. Top priority though is getting a manager and
booking agent as T1 & T2 need to tour.
Man this is a
pretty important entry now that I look at it. It's
kinda why I'm the old Adam again. Direction. Earlier
this year, in fact at my yearly new year's resolution
drinking video I said I will create what's in my
heart: fuck everything else. And that's what I'm
doing. In fact it might be the first time I've nailed
a year so profoundly while doing my drunken yearend
video. Because of Charlotte's specific goal, and not
even coming close - it made me feel that anything I
did was worthless without that goal. After a year of
being lost, I finally just said - WHO AM I?!?!
When have I ever waited for the path to create?
I've always CREATED and the path came. That's what
4tvs was all about. And that's where I am now. I am
completely following my heart and I know it will
