    Last Day

    We shot some really beautiful material the last few days; scenes comprised of poetry and dancing and Freudian slips.

    I took this picture of an earlier shot to help compose a subsequent one:

    Meanwhile, Tipper drank a bowl of hot chocolate. This is now the picture that shows up on my phone when she calls.

    You may have heard that Speed Racer only made 18 million dollars over the weekend. Well, dear readers, 48 of those dollars came from us. The movie was...colorful! Anyway, here's Tipper, Joe, Kris and I posing with the Incredible Hulk in the lobby of the movie theater.

    The next night we went to see David Byrne and Ed Lachman present True Stories at BAM, which I'd never seen before. Like Speed Racer, this film featured John Goodman. Unlike Speed Racer, this was an unqualified great time.

    And now here we are, on the last day of this leg of production. Joe and I just returned from a quick, early-morning shoot at the comic book shop. Then we went shopping for pie supplies...

    I am sure this account, this blog, is now gone onto the great Heavens of Abandoned Blogs (don't we all have at least one or two?)so I am sure I am talking to no one. But I must say, I watched this movie for the first time a few weeks ago. And for the 2nd time a week later, and so on and so on. Yes, I have seen it a ridiculously absurd amount of times in the last month. But, and I hate to use that word in fear of being accused of being too close to a cliche, but, it spoke to me. Or rather, I identified with it. Way more than I am comfortable with. I had to look around and say 'well shit, umm ya' in my own marriage. So I guess that is why a person make movies, huh? if not for their own demons, then to maybe reach out to someone else's? Well, you rattled mine.

    Shit, heaven forbid I simply say "loved your movie, good job".
