I’m a WINNER!!!!!

Can’t believe my luck these days; things seem to be DEFINITELY turning around! For example, I’m now down here at the Tuol Sleng Internet cafe, near the infamous former Tuol Sleng prison S21 [now a museum to the Cambodian Holocaust], where the Khmer Rouge held and tortured thousands of innocent men, women, and children. I’m […]

Fat Lizards Hang from the Ceiling in the Gobbling Nook of Insect Dreams

Today, down time on all media sides as G (back in NYC) figgers out how to get the hard drives running again to tweak the cut–again–of Susan Hero. Current approach is to have him cut a 100 minute version, which will cause, I hope, a tighter, leaner cut. And the ultimate goal is to make […]

Back from shooting Video in a Hilltribe Village

Just flew back from Ratanakiri (and boy are my arms tired…wa, wa, wa). Went up there to expolore some doc ideas and meet with some NGO folks who are eyeing a potential doc about land alienation in the region (land grabbing: stealing land from the natives, it’s rampant).

Hey Look–a long lost relative has contacted me!

Here at the Internet cafe down by the Tonle Sap river, very early in the morning when the net is fastest, the Internet girls slinking around in their pajamas and occasionally going up front to make an offering to the pair of monks who happen by (you can hear their mutual chants as they offer […]

ZONKED

I’m zonked; just about run ragged from hauling my ass all over this dusty town (Phnom Penh) in search of teaching gigs, meeting with potential doc folks, etc. Plus it’s as hot as a motherf*cker today, the Nagas are laughing at me as they play in their pools. Went and taught the guy from the […]

Back from the Strange Pastry Shop

By the way…I should mention because I’m starting this Blog a few months into this effort: I’m in Cambodia now. Came to SE Asia to: 1) hone my teaching skills in a place with presumably lower entry barriers to teaching versus the US, which requires a Master’s degree and plenty of red tape, additonal certifications, […]
