You are now leaving…the toughest year of your life

Not much more I can say. And I am not being melodramatic. Nor am I a rich guy from Connecticut with a hidden trust fund. I’m a guy who was reduced to a bowl of PHO a day as I slowly, trickingly, watched my money run out, after a year of unspeakable trials and tribulations […]

==> Rainy Season <==

Rainy season has begun; yesterday on my way back from PTC computers with some new memory for my laptop and a power brick (backup power), some of the streets were flooded to the tailpipe of my motodriver’s machine…certain streets we had to turn back, or take wheezing, wayward sloshing loops through streets on higher ground. […]

+Jesus Christos+

Came across a lost page of the Bible today, it fluttered down form the Tamarind tree… Felt like the ultimate loser yesterday, very doubtful about everything. What am I doing here? Then again, I have a place to live and a working space, whereas I was at one point reduced to living on foodstamps in […]

Morning…and beyond

And it’s time to head over to NGO forum to do the paperwork for the upcoming video in Ratanakiri, finally. Now here’s the rub: I’ve got too much work now, I think. I teach at two English schools, I’m editing Susan Hero (of course) and now I want to make this video for hire, a […]

Quack Update

Continued editing the scene with Morell and Javier in Morel;l’s lair. Some lighting issues, nothing severe; aciting by both is fabulous, Morell is very very real and very convincing. (Morell is played by Dr. Alan Rice, actor and scientist, who took a break from working with New York’s Museum of Natural History to play the […]

Colonel Panic and the Lost Data

Finally solved the OS X problem, which had led me into single-user, UNIX command line only territory, by re-installing a system from scratch (though I was running 10.2.8 and the only replacement I could find here in Phnom Penh was 10.2) In short, I was getting what’s known as a recurring “kernel panic”, the rough […]

A Couple Dreams * Death of my Crazy Relative

Had a couple vivid dreams last night: I the first, I was in some kind of tomb or temple, and ancient place with various relics still lying around, although the place had clearly been looted. I believe I was there with some kind of team or group: nearby, occasionaly coins littered the floor. At one […]

Weird Trip, Continued / Mac OSX Blues

Spending heaps of time burning a bootable OSX Cd so I can repair permissions on my boot volume, “New Brain”, which will allow me to continue editing Susan Hero in trouble free fashion. Next scene to cut: Morell in his lair. For all the advances the UNIX kernel offers on the platform, it’s still a […]

Weird Trip to The Coast / Editing at Last

[From “HURRICANE”, the uncensored production diary of the making of Susan Hero] Anyway, just finished polishing the first real scene, the scene between Lonnie and Waseta and their powerful mysterious “moment” together. Also worked a bit on the arrival of Susan and Javier at the Motel, which I’d previously cut then put aside to ripen […]

(((In the Spirit of William Blake)))

Old Bill Blake, by the way, was a successful engraver and sold a lot of his work at his workshop by the side of the road — an early example of vertical integration. Anyway, quick note, logged and looked at more footage; the more I see, the more my eye bewitched be. No, but really, […]
