May is nearly upon us and yet thick flakes fall as this mornings sun rises. Pittsburgh is the place to be.

Freaking Bummer 

10422977 9Bb912Cf0CI've scoured the internet for a video of a guy who gets a free alien from a box of cereal. The alien is a cute tan mound of slime that for the most part is innocuous and docile save for when he is munching happily away at a bowl of cereal. The alien conveniently eats his breakfast treat from inside the bowl (which makes the puppetry possible) and is perfectly amiable until he eats all the cereal around him. When he's done he loudly demands more by way of a loud piercing noise. Essentially the 'free alien' in every box is just a scam to force you to buy more cereal! When the guy runs out of cereal, the slime thing growls viciously and eats him. His breakfast treat eats HIM!
ANYWAY, this is a video I once had on my Mac. I don't remember where I got and so I don't remember where to get it now that I realize I've lost it. What a freaking bummer.

Engines are GO 

9835398 702A822Cf9The first meeting for Fat Tuesday was held on Sunday. This marks the beginning of the pre-production process of my feature film directorial debut. I feel like I have the memories of a thousand other souls who have attempted this same thing. This filmmaking thing. This creation of memory thing. This story telling thing. Scenes are read lines are cut/added, the plot is restructured, the very foundation of this entire mad adventure is constantly shifting, and all I can think of is the final shots, the magic of the set. Working with the actors to bring each twisted character to life. I must be sure not to get ahead of myself and do a better job of organizing this than

.... anything Ive done before. Easy, no?

And Then a Bunch of Freaks Dropped By Zooty's... 

to celebrate Jasmines birthday. Or so they said, but it was clear that these monsters were after more than your run of the mill jubilation. They were after stronger stuff. They were after the timeless Chalice of Intoxication.

We all begin to feel much closer to each other. Intimate, even. And by each other, I mean Jasmine.
