Here we go. A decent stretch of time and I’m in the mood to get some serious work done for mine own self. Not entirely my time, as I do (thankfully) have some paid work to get done, but at least I’m not being inundated with a flurry of work and classes all at once. I have stockpiled a ton of footage in need of edits, tweaks, re-edits, and animation to be animated, etc. First, the weekend off for the most part. I need to rewire the 5.1 DTS surround system. That’s on deck in minutes. I need my mind crippling audio crispness and then the blu-ray, HD-DVD, and WDTV HD media players all connected in their brilliant picture and sound goodness. Then I will find something to relax with. It might be MAN OF STEEL, it might be something more classic like RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK, or even the backlog of TV like AGENTS OF SHIELD or WALKING DEAD.
I’ve been working with several of my remaining cable access contacts about the show Clip Frames and mailed out about 3 sets of shows (approx 30 different 29 minute episodes). For outside the state of Ohio, I also send FRAMELINES to air on Education cable channels too. I like not giving up on public access even though it is a dying breed. Why not be on the old and the new formats? I strong web presence to go along with the channel surfers that still manage to find content old school.
Hitting the gym last night, again today, and tomorrow and the day after. With my time comes a major commitment to get healthier. I’m not losing weight (or specifically fat) enough yet. My foundation in healthy is a nil. With my time back comes home cooking too. I’ve added asparagus to my pallette. They are green, which normally I find completely offensive to taste, but baby steps.
My brain reached a certain zen state. I may lose my home soon, but that’s okay. I can make a new place home if I need to. I refuse to let a lot tear me down right now. I need to stay strong for myself. No one else will and that’s okay too.
Making new movies brings me back to life. I’m just going to keep going back to that well until it stops making me feel awesome. I don’t care if other people don’t like what I do. Who gives a shit about that kind of nonsense? Filmmaking ain’t a sport and the only person to whom I need to answer to is me.
Or the cats. Always have to answer to their cries for food. Or attention. Or litter boxes. I have to go now.
