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 […]

When you’ve lost everything, sometimes you need to travel. Hell, when you’re about to lose everything, you need to travel. We’ve all become enamored of changing the scenery over the years. And Joni Mitchell had it right all those years back–that we’d tear down Paradise to put up a parking lot. That we’d tear down […]

Just a short note about my bicycle (the Rans V-Rex rendered above). Today I crossed the 1,000 mile mark for the summer of 2019, which means I have 15,000 miles on it. Oddly, it’s been almost five years to the day since I put the first 10,000 miles on the V-Rex, proud product of the Rans […]

I’ve been trying to put in miles on my bike this summer–at least 50 miles per week, and more if I don’t have gigs in the offiing. But this weekend, not so much. The temperatures anticipated for NYC (and most of the eastern part of the US) are in the wet bulb range. I’ve tried […]

For those joining this site recently–I’ve been writing about Peak Oil and NTHE for seven years. But not intersectionally. If you know about Peak Oil, you can probably skip this. Peak Oil was first defined in 1956 by one M. King Hubbert, a respected geologist and researcher. He shocked the world by saying that oil […]

I’m back. I had plays in two Fringe Fests (Orlando May, Atlanta in June). I performed my new piece TWENTY BLOCKS NORTH OF THE ROCK PILE in Orlando, Florida. And then I went off to Atlanta, where I shared my updated play PLANET PHUCKETT!! I’m still pooped. Response to my work was… mixed. Apparently, bringing […]
