"I was in bands where I was doing 100 shows a year. Cover bands--singing other peoples music and stories which I love. I make them all my own. I forget that Steve Perry sings 'Don't stop Believing' and I feel like it's my song at this point. But that wasn't the dream. It was cutting it short to be safe to make sure everyone was happy. And then when I remembered what it was I really dreamt of my whole li...

"In doing these movies, a lot of it is getting to know these people and their backgrounds. There are some fantastic people out there who just love acting, either as a passion or a side job or they're following a dream. We're just happy to part of their career, whatever that may be. "

"It's really interesting if we don't chose where we place our focus, we tend to focus on negative things. If there are 100 people in the audience and 99 of them are our friends, our family and loved ones and one of them is a critic from The Chronicle, where's your focus going to be?....We all were cavemen thousands of years ago and the way we survived: we cam out of cave and we'd look around and and we'd ...

"It's never too late. My mind is set here. When I found out I was going to the (parole) board, I automatically said okay, you're going to get out the first time you go so let's start looking at your options. Okay, when you get out, you'll be 54. It's going to be a month before you're 55th birthday. That means you're going to have an opportunity to have a career in sports broadcasting. If you ca...

"I'll call the Mudbugs' game then head over to the El Dorado and deal some cards or supervise all the way up to 8 a.m. and sleep for maybe five or six hours and do it again on Saturday night. And then after Saturday night, I'll come home Sunday and sleep most of the day to recover and work graveyard again Sunday night."

"I started reaching out back in early 2000's--just started sending demo, touching base usually about once a year. 'Hey, don't forget about me. Keep me in mind.'...and then finally got a voice mail. I had gotten an e-mail saying there might be something and didn't hear anything. And then got a voice message saying if you're interested give us as call back....It was a pretty exciting moment for many,...

"We chose as a group to find silver linings and find the positive in whatever thing came our way....This year, there were so many things out of our control. We chose that and not everyone chooses that and that's credit to our players. For young people, it's often hard to find a silver lining when you have a setback. It's hard to find the positive when you feel like there are things going against you. Boy, livin...

"For a number of years, you're lucky if you're even breaking even let alone making any money. I still remember saying 'yes' to high school sideline up in Sacramento for $125. So after I would drive there and back with the gas and whatever cheap fast food I was buying that day., I'd get ready in a Target of Bed Bath and Beyond bathroom.....and just having one more thing to put on the resume reel. One more ...

"Sometimes you have a mental block or not getting to where you want to be. I put it down for a little bit, Dave. I'll let is gestate in my subconscious and I just go to sleep. I usually wake up in the morning or the next morning and it comes to me. So I kind of allow the computer to work on it in the subconscious...and I come back to it and it's like 'Ohhhhhhhh, that's what I really want.' And it starts ...

"It's remarkable because you just get told 'no' by so many teams and it was such a frustrating summer. And just a guy to give you a chance who doesn't even know you...because you're trying to break down that door. You get told 'no' and get discouraged. I was in the same boat as so many people just getting discouraged."
