My name is Daniel Kinch. I also answer to Dan as well as a variety of other names (sometimes to ‘Jerry’). I studied acting in college at University of South Florida (and afterwards), but my interest is (and always was) in writing plays–I studied with the late great Jack Gelber at Brooklyn College. I’ve written lots of […]

Dear Ms. Clinton: My name is Daniel Kinch. I’m a lowly leftist blogger. Worse, I am the simple artist–I sing, I dance, I perform the obscure agitprop play. I have been writing about the primaries and  I haven’t exactly been friendly to your campaign. But I’m a realist. I don’t think you can be elected, […]

Don’t be mislead by the title. I’m not talking about terror bombings or explosives conspiracies. I’m talking about emotion and metaphor.

Background: I have this FB friend named Angie Cordeiro. She has what has been called an ‘eclectic’ background–studying (and writing about) everything from human nutrition, early childhood development, religion, natural and holistic […]

On Saturday, I did the Pinocchio Theater production of Hillary’s nose. It was a light-hearted look at Hillary’s lies a la Pinocchio (her nose getting bigger, iow). We performed it at the Union Square rally for Bernie here in NYC. There were some 2-3,000 people out in the cold, who then marched from 14th street […]
