Film School Funniness or When I Stopped Caring About Reality

It’s funny, but whenever my classmates and I get together before a class we never really talk about current events. A category 5 hurricane is about to slam into the East coast, the October 7 gubernatorial recall election has been put on hold, and all we talk about is filmmaking. This seems to be a recurring issue with me—how focused we are in our own little worlds and really how insignificant all those petty little things seem when compared to the larger picture. Then again, it’s always nice to have a passion.

Effect and Cause

I think my computer is psychic. The second I decide to get out of bed this morning, the monitor turns on. The only way to do that is by pressing a key or moving the mouse, both of which are on the other side of the room.

California Water Gone South

What is this greenish-brownish crap in the bottom of my Brita® filter? (On the plus side, I get 100% Vitamin C from my juice drink!)

Fighting Back Against Technology

I am exceedingly irritated at this point. I just wrote an excellent multi-paragraph entry and it didn’t make it into the database. All is lost. Maybe later I’ll have the strength to write another entry but it took a lot out of me. Grrr…. Can’t these people make a simple little piece of software do ONE THING RIGHT?!


I noticed this moth today after coming back from class—right above the door to my apartment. It’s about two inches in length.

L.A. Sunset

It’s beautiful until you realize why L.A. sunsets are that color….

The Ring Weirdness

I just finished watching The Ring for the first time. I had to laugh because during the credits my telephone rang! I have to admit I was a little hesitant to answer the phone. It was some guy wanting Sergio. Wrong number.
