Pure, naked, unbridled, ornery, stubbornness.

I'm of Eastern European extraction. The term "positive outlook" is foreign to
that mentality. We know only tenacity.
"So, Herr Hitler, you want to invade Stalingrad in winter, yes? By all means,
make yourself comfortable...."

To tell the next story. And the one after that. Whether that's a TV show, or
a book, or a comic, or a play...it's all the same to me, as long as I get to
tell my stories the way I see them in my head.
In TV, I figure I've got another few years left in me before I just can't
handle it anymore, so I'd kinda like to do one more show, maybe two depending
on what does or doesn't last...and then get out. I'm 45 now, so that would put
me at about 50, a good age to go for a quieter lifestyle.
