<p>On today?s Martini Shot, Rob tries to limit himself to saying things that fit the following criteria: Is it true, is it kind, and is it necessary. It?s a very short Martini Shot.</p><div class="feedflare">

<p>Rob helps out a writer friend with a new script by giving him totally contradictory advice. In other words, he acts like an agent.</p><div class="feedflare">

<p>Rob gets all dressed up, because maybe a t-shirt and sneakers sends the wrong message. Why dress business casual for a business that isn't, really?</p><div class="feedflare">
<a href="http://feeds.kcrw.com/~ff/kcrw/ma?a=b2wRdZNpTZY:HGfjPUcoKxk:yIl2AUoC8zA"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/kcrw/ma?d=yIl2AUoC8zA" ...
<p>Rob takes his dog to the beach and watches her retrieves a tennis ball. And when someone compliments her, he takes credit for it. In other words, he acts like a producer.</p><div class="feedflare">

<p>Rob appears in all sorts of media, both video and audio, but no matter where he appears, it?s always the same: he looks tired and fat.</p><div class="feedflare">
<a href="http://feeds.kcrw.com/~ff/kcrw/ma?a=ee95G2_QmDU:XAZtJjxTznc:yIl2AUoC8zA"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/kcrw/ma?d=yIl2AUoC8zA" ...
<p>Rob flies through the air like a superhero. Actually, he just jumps over a puddle. But it feels the same.</p><div class="feedflare">
