Read, read, read. Read everything — trash, classics, good and bad, and see how they do it. Just like a carpenter who works as an apprentice and studies the master. Read! You’ll absorb it.
Then write. If it’s good, you’ll find out. If it’s not, throw it out of the window.
Ken Cosgrove is tap dancing because his father-in-law taught him how.
Ray Wise, who plays Ed Baxter on Mad Men, also played the unforgettable Leland Palmer on Twin Peaks. Leland did a LOT of dancing on that show.
oh my god????????
This blows my mind, I know it’s on purpose, but I love it.
Like I said, Mad Men is the successor for Twin Peaks.
Leland Palmer danced everytime he went batshit insane. To be fair, everyone was batshit insane last episode of Mad Men

Not Iambic….Do Not Accept…
These tags I’ll pop, and boast in rhyming verse
that what I wear puts swagger in my gait;
though twenty shillings have I in my purse,
my self-esteem and manhood both inflate
when lofty furs I purchase for a cent.
Thy grandpa’s clothes are worthy salvage, though
they smell a trifle musty. Still, I spent
much less to dress myself from head to toe.
To save or not to save? The question’s moot.
I’ll never give my coin to high-street crooks.
These dusty shelves will yield their hidden loot
to those, like me, more frugal in their looks.
Like ancient coins washed up on distant shores,
I’ll find my treasures in these thrifty stores.
- Macklemore, “Thrift Shoppe”
