We get together, fall apart, and start all over again with Theodore Witcher’s “Love Jones” and discuss:

  • acting, adding subtext through performances;
  • Story & writing, how a romance creates tension, and why sex scenes are great storytelling tools;
  • And other such stuff and things and stuff.

There are two tragedies in life. One is to lose your heart’s desire. The other is to gain it. – George Bernard Shaw
