Eye of the Kleiler

The Den of Curiosity hosted a viewing party for the completed Say Yes video yesterday evening, and everyone agrees that director David Kleiler is a genius. Not only is he in possession of the most beautiful blonde mane this side of Camelot--every time he tossles it my heart turns arrhythmic--he's got video-directing skills to boot. In fact, he wrote the book on music video-directing. (Look him up on!) He's friendly, too, greeting all with a warm "you're fantastic," even if he's never met the fantastic person he's greeting before. And he played guitar with '80s indie rockers the Volcano Suns. And if you substitute his last name for 'tiger' in Survivor's Eye of the Tiger, it fits better than the original lyric! Now I'm hyperventilating. Must... take... a deep... breath...

There have been a few questions lately concerning my marriage, children, and living situation. While my wife and I remain happily in love (not to mention hopelessly devoted to our four children), we choose to live separately, not unlike Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera. We share residences in Hollywood, Echo Park, Malibu, London, Rio de Janeiro and Costa Rica, but rarely--if ever--dwell in any one of the spaces at the same time for more than a few days. We are very much in love, but we appreciate each other's space as well, so we live separately, for better or worse, till death do us part. That said, my wife will not be living in my Echo Park abode during the month of May, either, so it is available for sublet for that entire page of the calendar. Email me at if you're interested.
