So what’s this blog about?  I’m not really sure.  Your two contributors live in NY, have been friends for a while, and, well, let’s say we don’t always have the most rosy view of the world.

So I’m not sure what you’ll get here, but since there probably isn’t anyone reading this we figure that’s not that big of a deal.

In terms of the name, The Half Empty Glass seemed like a fair expression of our default view of the world, which is not to say that we cannot be all sunshine and light when appropriate. 

You might — or might not — be wondering why our URL ( does not match the blog title.  I think that the correct URL was taken.  How’s that for an interesting explanation?

So why “The Right Profile”?  No, it’s not some political nonsense, it’s a song by The Clash from London Calling that is about Montgomery Clift, who was in a bad car accident, but continued acting afterwards. In later films, they would focus on his right profile to avoid showing his scars.

What does any of that have to do with this blog?  It’s the URL, that’s what it has to do with this blog.

It’s also a damn good song:

    That is my fave Clash song and as I clicked on this over from Marty’s page
    I read the damn title and of course I was singing the damn song!

    So happy to see the song title put to good use…
    I freaking love Monty Clift.
    and it’s one of the best songs ever written about an actor.
