It was winter of 2010. Or was it a little after? 2010 – 2011, to make it easier. I had learned some time ago, that there was a German film that was really well regarded, my pen pal had written me. She had said that it was a great film and a lot of folks enjoyed it.

It was only until this moment that I had one day stumbled upon the same name on the schedule at the Baytowne Theatre.

So, I called up my screenwriting pals and we all agreed to check out this film.

I never went to film school. Probably will never attend a school. I did take workshops at film initiatives and even graduated from a dedicated Scriptwriting Program and watched thousands of movies at home… and even took a free online course about the history and the use of color and sound in movies.

Is it worth it? All the trouble and following the alternative path?

I have already accepted my fate as a non-filmmaker but a more writer-ly goal. That I can control and that I can continue to dance freely as possible at home and trying to construct the right amount of words to make people feel good, scared, sad, and pissed off. I need that fix and there’s nothing more uplifting than the high of a writer from writing a few thousand words. It’s always the beginning flow that takes so goddamn long and then after a good hard run of words, you just can’t stop.

LONE WOLF MANIFESTO

October 16, 2017 — Leave a comment

Most times, I am the lone wolf.

It’s tough to play this role because the moments of solitude bliss is mixed with many shades of darkness. And yes, it’s quite similar to the self-inflicted BDSM stuff too. I haven’t reached out to the local filmmaking network as I had always intended to do but ultimately passed on it. I know there are the little guys who are creating and I commend them so much for keeping that right attitude so strong.

For me, it was a matter of understanding my rightful place in the world and accepting what I could control and couldn’t. And in this case, my own destiny as a creator of content.

I loved and will always love the TV series, LOST.

I’m not as crazy as some people can be but I’m not as hateful as some people are about the final season of the show. It was quite clear that the finale revealed the parallel timeline to be the epilogue and not the whole “they were dead the whole time” — what does it really mean to be dead? Could it be the final few minutes of Jack dreaming up a whole scenario as his brain shuts off? Or is it the life after life that isn’t comprehensible by our logic in this world? 

But, it existed in a time when it seemed almost impossible for it exists. And compared to the shows that did come after it… you could poke holes here and there and express the agony and pain of certain arcs that could have been tightened up or expressed more. There were the important bits that made it fun and addictive. And then, there were the important people moments. It drew upon its own love of other source materials, some that were apparent and clear and other sources that seemed a little blurred or coincidental.

DREAM: Black dog

December 26, 2011 — Leave a comment

I was outside my parents’ house. There were some loose eavestrough on the house so I decided, in my dream self, that fixing it in the dark would be ideal. And so, I was making rounds at checking for clogged sections too. I would also like to mention that it was dark but in the dream world, the night sky was illuminating some strange hue… like it was some black veil and light was shining from behind the horizon. So, kind of sepia night sky.

Then, I heard it. Somewhere in the quiet neighborhood, something was getting closer. I could tell by the way the bushes rustled or how metal fences would give off that metallic ring when someone or something climbed over them.

At this point I did what my waking self would do: I got the hell out of there.

I finished what I was doing and rushed into the patio and closed the door behind me. Then I got into the garage and closed both the back and front doors. Nothing was going to get in.


“WASSSSSSSSSSSSSSSUP?”

The actual pillow is just a standard foam pillow that looks a lot like this:
