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...

My photo
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.

Greendale (where I live) has officially been designated as a National Historic Landmark by the U.S. Interior Department.

...from the Department of the Interior:

"Greendale Historic District, Village of Greendale, Wis. Greendale, of three government-sponsored “greenbelt” communities built during the Great Depression, represents the federal response to the desperate unemployment of the era and the urgent need for housing reform for the urban working class."

There are a number of websites on Greendale - my favorite being this one - as I live in an "original".

My Grampa Ircink helped to settle Greendale in 1938. He served as a trustee, among other civic duties. My father grew up in Greendale. I was born here. And I have still have family here. It is a wonderful, unique community and it would be "perfection" - if only the lady four houses away from me would stop screaming at the top of her lungs at her dogs.
