  • I spent my day working on a huge campaign of health care commercials. From your TVs and websites, you'll soon see supportive doctors and hear uplifting music, a comforting balm to what ails you.

    They will fix you, fix it, fix everything. A pill. A surgery. A cure.

    When I left, I went to see my physical therapist. Too many years sitting around working on films and commercials and I've got a weak core, a lazy ass, wobbly hips. I don't want the quick fix for that so I'll put in the work to fix it myself.
