Later That Same Life


Later That Same Life, a genuine “Time Travel Talk Show”

WOULD YOU BE WILLING TO FACE THE PAST?  

It’s about the expectations we put on ourselves.

The difference between potential, ambition, and reality.

What is success?

What is failure?

Who decides how to judge a life?

The past is still in us, wanting answers. Maybe it’s time to stop running and have a talk.   

And, while where chatting, what’s the deal with that beard, dude?

I’M SUPER EXCITED THAT, THANKS TO THE NICE FOLKS AT CREATIVE STUDIO AND OVATION TV (AND, OF COURSE, ROCKETHUB), I’M GOING FINISH A PROJECT I STARTED 38 YEARS AGO! 

You see, back in 1977 when I was 18 years old, I interviewed my future self. Using state of the art (for its time) equipment, I recorded one side of a time-travel talk show.

I sat in a well-lit chair in a completely black studio and, like some teenaged Johnny Carson, chatted with an invisible older me. During this one-way conversation, I asked my older self tons of questions about my future – from career to family to art to friendships to sex. Then I recorded many different reactions to each possible answer, ranging from polite nods, to joy, sadness, annoyance, surprise, and outright horror.
