Childhood Media Influence Mash-Up Alice in Wonderland with NIN and Other Classic Videos From BG

This is a mash up of clips that influenced me as a kid. I loved Alice in Wonderland, The Nightmare Before Christmas and many other strange stories and films. Below is a poem I wrote and set to a short film of myself hanging out in my old apartment with Ginger who is no longer […]

What Happens After Harry Potter? Thoughts Before & After Watching the Final Film

JULY 14th, 2011: BEFORE At the premiere of Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows and it is about 9pm. Grandma called me at 2pm and said people were waiting in tents! There are a dozen or so Hermione’s and other girls in various lengths and patterns of plaid skirts. I even passed a dedicated Lord […]

Defending Harry Potter

Here is the original article by Dave Thier. It was written yesterday and has spawned some controversy for die hard fans. I will take this article on, section by section, line by line if need be. Dave needs to stop writing articles about things he clearly didn’t research and doesn’t care about. Dave Thier, I […]

You Can’t Go Home Again…

Once you’ve left it’s never the same again. I lived by these tracks for years and now I only cross them when I go out of my way to do so. This is our old place, I used to call it the “barn house.” When we moved in the top story was a different color […]

How Have I Never Seen Boogie Nights? (and Other Quandries from an Unemployed Brain)

What the hell I’m a huge John C. Reilly fan! Not to mention it had a pretty awesome cast, Marky Mark Wahlberg? LOL. Wow, this blog isn’t punctuated the best, huh guys? I’m just acting weird because I’m pondering 2011 and how everyone thinks it’s the end of the world. I don’t believe them but […]

Dare to Dream, Escape, Become

I’ve been listening to a lot of new music to escape the crappy life of not being able to pay bills or get much of what I want… I want to be a film editor but I’m not sure how, or if, that’s possible. I long to interpret, rearrange, and put together cohesive artistic visions […]

What Should I Do Next? You Decide!

Music makes me remember the time we… yeah. It won’t let me forget what I was like when I was young. I hear a song from ten years ago and the words press on my chest between the rhythm of the song and the beating of my heart. I discover something new nearly everyday and […]

The Dead Winter

“What the heck? It’s the dead of winter and the sun is still shining!” -small girl outside the Waterloo Public Library I came to the library today and realized that I am in charge of my own blues. I miss college so much it has almost made me ill! I have failed to realize up […]

Mandy on “Candy”

I just watched a really awesome movie called “Candy.” It made me realize that the kind of life I’m bound to have is one of the “drug addict” variety, not that I am going to be on drugs necessarily, but that my life will have moments of extreme bliss followed by periods of despair. The […]

Creep [screenplay]

EXT. A SIDEWALK DAY OLIVIA and CORDELIA walk home after school. Olivia is somewhat top-heavy and wears several layers of clothing in earthy tones. She walks slightly in front of Cordelia avoiding cracks in an overgrown sidewalk. She ’pops the head’ off a dandelion prompting Cordelia to pick one from an uncut lawn. CORDELIA I […]

Tall Tale / Violent Keys

This is kind of a re-post because I made a video for one of my poems. I think it may have changed from the original so here you be: Tall Tale I scale a wall ten feet tall and curiously fall to the forest floor. Tree roots grab ankles, heels feel warm with moss growing […]
