MOVIES & MUSIC

Hey people. What's going on?

I've been busy working on all kinds of projects. Some of you might know that I have a serious interest in movies - as in writing and directing them some day. I'd love to make a little indie-feature and take it around to festivals and do all that film biz stuff. So I've been writing a bunch of screenplays over the last several years. There are now 5 feature scripts in various stages of "development". When I get tired of one I just go back to one of the others and work on that for a while. It's fun and it's creative and it's difficult. It's hard making something that's really a plan for a 2 hour movie. Each of these scripts is approximately 120 pages in length, give or take a few, so it takes a lot of organizing and deleting and starting over and I actually enjoy all of that frustrating stuff. Plus it gives me a break from music, which I need sometimes. But...

Having said all that: I am back working on a new music project. The debate right now is over whether this will be a full length album or a Mini-album (they used to call them EPs). The songs are all done so I'm kind of trying to figure out which ones to release. Looking for groups of songs that work well together - that kind of thing. Fun. But whatever it turns into - IT will be out in the spring.

By the way: if you haven't seen The Curious Case of Benjamin Button - I highly recommend it. Amazing movie by director David Fincher - who is an incredibly talented guy. The film is long but highly original, has great acting (Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett) and really stunning special effects which are actually there to help tell the story instead of stick out like a sore thumb. I hate movies where you're obviously just meant to swoon over the effects instead of getting involved in a legit storyline. This is a great film. One of the best I've seen in a long, long time.

Okay. Enough rambling. It's Friday afternoon. I'm at home trying to decide whether to go out clubbing tonight or stay in and work. At this moment the clubbing thing is winning out.

PEACE.
