Do you remember the couch you grew up on?
On every interview we go on, that single question stirs a feeling that is easily visible on the face of our guests. Think about it yourself- I bet you can remember the couch you sat on as a child. Do you remember the feel? Was it itchy? Did it smell a certain way? Stories about watching Sportscenter with a father, or playing hide-and-seek with sisters…these are the tales woven into the fabric of our couches- and into the minds of those who sat on them.
We recently sat down with Blake Freeman at his condo in Los Angeles to ask him about his life on a couch. Blake has directed, starred in, and produced numerous films with some big names on the Hollywood scene including Eddie Griffin and Danny Trejo. But even after all of the celebrity and recognition, he still cracked a smile when we asked him about his childhood couch.
At the end of the day, we all share this one thing in life. From entrepreneurs in Atlanta, to struggling workers in the Gobi desert, to Hollywood film producers- everyone looks forward to the end of the day when they can go home to their happy place and stretch out with their feet up. We’ll continue to draw the line that connects us all to a life on a couch.
