Spring Break Shark Attach

Okay -- so I saw this made for TV movie the other night. Gathered around with a few friends.

Aruguably the cheesiest movie ever. Totally devoid of any artistic or intellectual value.

However, it did have lots of beautiful women in bikinis and brief scene with jello wrestling on the beach.

That's what movies need these days. More jello wrestling!!!
I was pulling out of the post office the afternoon. Right in front of me was some dufus, with not 1 but 2 George W. Bush bumper stickers and a vanity license plate that read "4 Bush".

The thing is that it was on a freakin' Volvo. (Whereas my Kerry sticker still resides on my good ol' American made Mercury Cougar).

My first thought was, "Great - this guy doesn't support America with his spending habits or his political choices."

Oh, I just so damn hopeful for the 3 years, 10 months.
Is it just me or does the very idea of wearing orange on St. Patrick's Day just seem really wrong? Almost like you're looking for a fight.

Wearing orange is a statement that you're going to go out and get drunk, but you're going to oppress the little folks while you're doing it.

The really weird part of it is that, when I was at the bar last night, I mentioned this to a couple of people who were wearing orange. None of them knew the significance of it.


People can be so damn stupid.
A bunch of us were trying to come up with an idea for a cool fundraiser for movies and other art projects.

Imagine this: a Jello Wrestling Marathon.

Three rings with non-stop jello wrestling action. We'll have some blondes on the rasberry jello ring. Brunettes in the orange jello ring. Redheads in the lime jello ring.

Too damn cool. There's simply no way you can go wrong with something like this.

Well, okay -- granted we probably won't be able to find enough participants to make this happen. Still, it's one of those ideas you think of over booze and it just seems so damn cool.

I can't believe how much it sucks that my old high school is closing. When I was in high school, I wanted nothing more than to leave that place or (better yet) burn it down. Now I actually feel a sense of loss.

I've known this was coming for years. Their enrollment has been dropping fast. My graduating class was close to 300; now they don't even have that much in whole place.

Still, I can't help but feel a certain sense of sadness and loss - over its closing and over the fact that I can't do anything about it.
The good news is that I'm shooting a film this weekend with the guys from Thought Collide. Should be a lot of fun.

The bad news is that I'm shooting a film this weekend so I can't go to the Hamtramck Blowout. Which kinda sucks because this year's line-up looks really, really good.
