I doubt I'll be posting any updates while I'm out of the country, but I will certainly give a hearty wrap-up when I get home next Thursday night. Don't miss me while I'm gone, for I'll be back before you can say, "Where is he going, anyway?" I'll tell you all about it when I get back. I just don't want to jinx what I hope is going to be a pretty cool trip.
--Ken Lay didn't die of a massive coronary. He died of a massive karmanary.
--Please go to this site and watch Todd Rohal's short film contribution to the Holland Tourism Board, starring soon-to-be Hollywood megastar Danny McBride. I've seen outtakes from their trip and one segment might be the most brilliant improvisation I've ever seen. Unfortunately, it was a tad too profane to be submitted to the actual contest. Just be sure not to vote for it, as I recently received this memo from Mr. Rohal himself:
"If you do blog about it...make sure to tell folks to vote for Tulips For Daisy...just to keep our score
low. No one wins anything, so for me the top prize will be the shame associated with being worse than all those other films."
As you wish, Monsieur Auteur.
--Thanks to all of you who wrote me with possible apartment leads (Rebecca, Tom, Gabi, Kat, Karen, etc.). That deal is already almost sealed (knock, knock, knock on a big ol' tree). Which leads me to the next plea: I NEED A JOB! If you read this site regularly, it's quite apparent that I don't have a very professional resume, but I mean well and I'm not a moron and at this point I'm willing to consider anything--until I find enough money to make a movie the right way, that is. I know I swore that I'd never set butt in a cubicle again, and I'm still trying to find a path that will enable me to keep that passionate word, but if it has to be done, it has to be done.
--Have fun while I'm gone...
