For those wondering what the hell is going on around here; a re-archiving of work, autobiographically, chronologically and conceptually all at the same time. It’s a surreal experience, rooting through 15 years of writings, paintings, photographs and all-around life experience. I have a plan for the direction of this website which requires this attention to the archive first. Hopefully a more thorough and functional site experience, along with my subsequent nervous breakdown, will be finished by April 1.
Thanks for browsing and hanging around.
The extent of my energy for politics after waking up and reading that America “needs to win wars again” is nil. This is about the art of cinematic storytelling.
I love a good movie. A solid script with the right cast as seen through an innovative director’s eye. And I want to believe in Hollywood, even with all the bullshit capitalism that has leeched on to the artform. I want to believe that the movie industry still puts the story first, even as it continues to bog us all down with hellish, under-written, re-hashed ideas.1
I want to believe that because of the industry side of the movie industry, some member of the Academy2 found themselves sitting around last week watching the news and realizing that nothing is as surreal as reality right now, and that the best way to give America the cathartic, completely unpredictable and absolutely perfect moment of escape would be to switch the cards on Warren Beatty.
