Rainy Days and Mondays...

always get me down. But at least I have Karen Carpenter to keep me company.

Trying to make the most of another day without work. Grocery shopping, baking cookies, exercising (so I can eat the cookies). Since the money is not rolling in, I feel compelled to make these "free" days as productive as possible. Sometimes it works, sometimes I start watching a random tv series on Netflix and keep clicking "next episode". So it goes.

Just finished reading a book called Zeitoun about a family in New Orleans and their ordeals during Hurricane Katrina. In light of everything that's happening in Japan right now it was an even more sobering read. I would recommend it.

What else is up with me? The Bushman film did not make it into the SF Underground Film Festival. It's looking like it won't be in the Sonoma Film Festival either (though I don't know that for sure yet.) Once it's confirmed that we won't be screening locally anytime soon, I'll get the film up on Vimeo so people who weren't able to make the screening can see it.

I'm working on another Scary Cow film, this one about aliens. Fantastic! Still have to come up with an idea for another film I can direct, but there's time so no need to panic yet. This Saturday I'll be in a fake car commercial someone else in Scary Cow is making. Nice to have some time in front of the camera to mix it up a bit.

And, well, um... now I am remembering why I fell out of the weekly update thing in 2010. I'm adding another goal to make my life more interesting so these posts will be more interesting. Yeah!
