” I was dreaming when I wrote this. So sue me if I go to fast.” – Prince and The Revolution

Puppicasso took a long break from all that predicting, because it was getting way too unpredictable.

But today he turned six years old.

From six months to six years he has been living the adopted life, and from nine months he moved into his Breaking Bad life.  He grew up in the Burbank offices, and early on came to know a fellow named Eddie —

Puppi always has to look over his shoulder....

Puppi always has to look over his shoulder….

Little did I know then that this expression was a prediction...

Little did I know then that this expression was a prediction…

Puppicasso’s first prediction of 2014 was made in 2009, when he sat not so patiently next to Eddie knowing that his mom would be Nominated for one today!

Here’s to hoping that the American Cinema Editors Eddie Awards Ceremony allows Puppis in to enjoy and all the meat they can eat!

Pupp extends his paw up for a paw/fist bump to the other people that gave him belly rubs and fed him while they were trying to cut — Skip Macdonald, Kelley Dixon, and Chris McCaleb!

He thanks Lynne Willingham for lending her Breaking Bad Eddie Award so he could facilitate his long term prediction– five years in the making!



Puppi and the very Icey Day

Puppi was put on a really strict diet. One can of food a day – half in the morning with pills, repeat at night.

No treats.

The combination of diet and steroids has made for one very cranky Puppi.

As I tried to figure out what I had to do to satiate Puppi’s well-being, I was off to the cast and crew screening of a short film I made, Breaking Ice.  Appropriately enough, I had crew gifts made that were mood cups that changed color when cold…


Coming back from the rink where the screening was held, I literally stumbled on the cure to his chewiness… Ice Cubes.  (I fell carrying the ice chest that contained them, and ending up using the cubes to ice my shins.)

He used them to teeth as a puppy-Pupp, and now they cooled his anger towards the diet.

Ice is usually thought of as cold and unforgiving, but using it in tiny chunks made Puppi’s life right now more warm and inviting.

Yay Ice!



Puppicasso spent another weekend day of work with his momma.

This is what he looked like in the morning when I told him he had to go in:


Pupp needed a double es...

and a donut.

In spite of his reluctance, he knew he good make a good situation out of a boring one.  He decided to make a Puppicasso Prediction work for him, so for today, he threw on his PR hat and turned PP#28 into shameless “Puppi-Plugs”.

Puppi owns the Fire Plug Puppic Relations Firm.

XLR Plugs

Pupp doesn't listen to "His Master's Voice"...

... he speaks to it. He is his own Master's Voice.

And if you gotta a pooch in Los Angeles bring them to these auditions on Sunday:


That is it.

Thank You.



Puppicasso’s mom (meaning me) has always had sinus issues.  It turns out that I am allergic to dust and dogs.

I suppose if I got rid of those two things I would gain clarity, but sometimes clarity is not necessarily achieved through free passages.

I am feeling very chemical and scientific today, not just from working on the show “Breaking Bad” since Season 2, but by the way my narrowing nasal passages are causing a tunnel vision for my tasks at hand today.

Puppi has seen me go to extreme means to be able to breathe but this might be too much for him to handle…

This is how I can pick up Pupp -- allergy free.

But, Puppicasso is not frightened by my Tyvek attire because he knows his periodic table of elements so well —

that’s where he gets most of his table scraps from.

Meet Puppiodic Chart Element #15, Phosphoruff!

Phosphoruff has given me an hypothesis to prove today:

Action figures are said to be mint if they remain in their original boxes.  Predict that this unbroken state will deem them useless for creating action.

He can be so serious when he is in research mode.

He consults the Pupp Table for his place in society – http://www.ptable.com/ and finds that he belongs the Nitrogen Group.  He knows that they have made some shady stock market deals in the past.  He is hoping to be part of the new generation of Nitrogens that will right those former wrongs.

And then on WikiPuppi,  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phosphorus , he discovers his place in mythology…

He is the light bearer and the fertilizer essential for life.

If the amount of fertilizing he does in the morning is any indication…

Poopicasso Phosphoruff is single-handedly ensuring that plenty of pep is predicted to prosper.

( He couldn’t resist using Palliteration, please take pity on him.)
