For roughly 6 years I lived in a downtown Tulsa Apartment that also ended up being the location where I created the first version of Thinkpierce.com. The low rent and high tolerance of the area allowed me the freedom to fund creative endeavors and play drums at full volume (even though I had neighbors directly below me– thanks Daniel & Mercedes! ☺ It also ended up being the set location of an independent film I made called, “The Turtleneck Club” Let’s just say to call it a bachelor pad, would be an understatement; for starters I literally installed a shower in it. ha ha. Before getting married and moving to a place with a roof that didn’t leak, ha ha, I decided to get it on camera in all it’s glory thanks to the help of video buff James Plumlee. In addition to shooting the apartment at different times of the year, I was able to get access to a couple of high-rise buildings nearby to really capture the area. It’s been fun to finally put all the pieces together and end up with a video snap shot of what would best be described as the original “Thinkpierce Headquarters.” Thinkpierce, Something New Every Friday!

Recently I had a chance to create a new video called “Technical Difficulties” which features Dalton and I doing what everyone wants to do when their computer acts up. Special thanks to everyone who was a part of the production as well as Paul Ross for letting us use the lobby of his office building to film in. Thinkpierce, Something New Every Friday!
Shortly after creating the movie Adult Daycare, I moved in to an apartment in downtown Tulsa. To say that it was “a bit run down” would have been an understatement. The only real set back was that it didn’t have a shower. Fortunately, this was a dilemma I could do something about. Click here to see it built from start to finish in this weeks’ video, The Apartment Shower. Thinkpierce, Something New Every Friday!
The year after I graduated High School I was invited back to host a talent show. I was full of energy and well…borderline insane. And nothing could depict that more accurately than this week’s video. Thinkpierce, Something New Every Friday!
One day I set up three tables outside my apartment that held bowls of eggs, heads of lettuce and tomatoes. Then I invited 10 friends over to throw them at me while I ran down the stairs of my apartment and got it on video featuring music by And There Stand Empires. There’s basically no other way to describe it. Enjoy! Thinkpierce, Something New Every Friday!
In the summer of 2008, a massive home remodel project that I had been subcontracted to work on was coming to a close. The high-end cabinets that had been removed from the kitchen were still in style and in great shape. The homeowner asked if I would take the cabinets down to her parents in Hominy, Oklahoma to complete a full kitchen remodel and another Utica Remodeling project was born.
