TJ Bowen is a recovery counselor working in Los Angeles. I first met him when we worked together on the film A THOUSAND JUNKIES which he co-wrote and co-starred in with Tommy Swerdlow and Blake Heron. The film premiered at the 2017 Tribeca Film Festival and Blake died soon thereafter from a drug overdose. TJ wrote a remembrance about Blake that is so beautiful and somehow captures the fleeting grace of sobriety. I asked him to read it after our interview.
Also, has Jim Hart already been paid his $10k fixed fee? If not, when is it to be payable?
