Passion = Truth? How Jeffrey James Francis Ircink Sees The World? I love when people are passionate about something. That surging of emotion is the one honest measure of what truth is. It's a truthful display of how a person really feels about something or someone at that particular moment. That passion IS truth.

About me...

Greendale, Wisconsin, United States
Ex-producer of THE REALLY FUNNY HORNY GOAT INTERNATIONAL SHORT FILM FESTIVAL, playwright, actor, singer, outdoorsman, blogger, amateur photog, observer & bitcher, Beach Boys groupie, Brett Favre fanatic, lover of everything Celtic and forever a member in the Tribe of HAIR. Spent most of my life in the Village of Waterford, a small town just outside of the Milwaukee suburbs. After 12 years in North Hollywood, Bel Air and Culver City, Cali, I moved back to Wisconsin in September 2009. No regrets - of moving to LA OR moving back to WI. Have traveled to Belfast, Ireland, Dayton (OH), Manhattan, Seattle, Cedar Rapids, New York, Miami and Sydney, Australia with my plays. Moved back into the Village of Greendale where I was born. Life is good.

Broad Street Coffee historic Greendale, WI

No, not Neil Young's album Greendale. Greendale, birthplace. And my father's birthplace. A lot of family tradition here in Greendale. My Grandpa Ircink was one of the "founding fathers" back in the later 1930's. Lots of fond memories. I'm at my new coffee house/writing hangout talking to Shirley's (nee Weber) youngest son who works here (Shirley manages the place - my mom and her coffee friends meet here everymorning at the crack of dawn to drink and jabber). Having an apple gingerbread cobbler coffee and a Door County cherry scone. Contented.

My recent trip to Ireland was the buffer between moving back here from California on September 12th and the reality that I must get a move-on and get on with my new life here. I've received my substitute teaching certificate from the state so as of Monday I'll be active to teach in the Waterford Union High School district and any other school district I'm interested in. Mukwonago, Greendale, New Berlin - the more shit you know the saying. It's a start. I'll also offer my services as a tutor for writing to high school students.

Above: Dale Park in Greendale. Then there's auditioning for theater in Milwaukee, Chicago and Minneapolis. And my writing. Found a great theater in Bay View (adjacent to Milwaukee on Lake Michigan) that might be an ideal venue to have some of my plays produced. I've contacted the owner and we're due to meet up mid-October.

Wisconsin license and plates, find a place to live (at home with my parent's now). Much to do. I really need that Wisconsin license in order to get my WI bowhunting license. Have hunted on one occasion a couple years ago in WI since I moved to Los Angeles in 1998. New website to start called "Milwaukee on the Cheap". Busy.

I'm excited. I'll leave you with Neil Young & Crazyhorse's "Bringin' Down Dinner" from the album, Greendale.

My mom and Aunt Ruth have to shopping for a wedding shower gift. They may stop in for a coffee. It's nice being home.
