Ralf's idea for an acting/actor/performer training...
I think about this a lot. I learned a lot in as an undergrad in college about acting but it wasn’t really in the classes. It was because I went to private school with a lot of money and resources, so I was able to be in A LOT of shows and student films before I graduated, and I had incredible professors who were involved, interested, supportive, and invested, but I didn’t get much at...
angstyamy asked: So I'm a student at Wayne State University in Detroit and you came to my theatre class to present your one-man street Shakespeare in September. I just wanted to say I'm really interested in what you were doing, and to tell you great job! Keep it up!

Let me tell you about how that’s racist. Its not. A parapelegic can tell you a lot more about disability than an able bodied person can. The able bodied person will have a...

That means The Homosexuals, that means muslims, that means every person was...

When I look back at this time.in my life in my Seventies, in my Eighties, I want to know that I gave it all I got. That I gave myself a shot. I want to see this moment anticipating having perspective on it later. I’m so scared, because I’m not doing what I’m supposed to be doing. But for the first time in my life I’m getting palpitations and nausea from anxiety, and...
Jumping in feet first has always seemed to work out for you.– My director/collaborator Jolie Tong
My friend Matt Nation once said to me the reason people love performers is because they seem so much freer than everyone else. I love that concept and I take that a step further. People watching in NYC, and in my own experience, most people are never nearly as free as they are to be themselves, and to honestly express themselves as they are with their own families. The most introverted people...

It was a fairly public performance, in front of thr student cafeteria, and there was a sizable crowd. At the end of my performance Dara handed me a $2 bill and told me someone in the audience gave it to her to give...

Our old friend, actor Ethan Hawke talking to Tavis Smiley about his new film, Sinister and his career. What a good guy. PS. In case you don’t remember, I call him old friend because I met and performed for and his family him six months ago on my tour.

I was inside the SoHo Apple store for about 2 hrs, trying to catch up on some blogging last Tues (which I do because I don’t own a computer besides my phone, and it can’t really do the whole job..), and when I emerged Old Grace (the bike), which I’d locked to a tree in front of the store early afternoon, in broad day, was gone. Suffice to say the bike tour is over. That doesn’t mean the...
