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.

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.

3 sub-zero essentials.

Everyone and their mother knows the Midwest (as well as other parts of the United States) have been in the grips of a polar vortex. -20, -30, -40, -50 temps with windchill. I work outside for a living so you can imagine the severe cold weighs on me - and my body. Among other things (layering, socks, footwear), here's three items I wouldn't be caught dead without. Or I might be dead. Or at least frostbitten.
1.)  Thermos. This was my Grampa Ircink's. It's old. Brother Jason gave it to me for Christmas. Filled this mofo at about 10:25 am with hot coffee. Had a cup when I got home at 5:15 pm. As hot as if it were freshly made.

2.)  Military arctic gloves. Used. Deerskin leather. Insulated. $10 at the Milwaukee Sport Show a couple years ago.

3.)  Thick wool pants. $20 on Ebay. Used them for a theater costume. Suspenders optional. Doesn't stay wet and dries quickly.

BONUS:  The beard. Well - it can't hurt. Keeps my face warm during bowhunting, in -30 degree windchill and it's convenient for potential acting gigs.

I would add a good hand cream like Udder or No Crack for the wear & tear on your fingers (splitting, cracked skin). OK - go outside in the -40 temps & have fun!
