Ok, ok....

I admit it. I've been really bad about updating my blog recently. Honestly, I'm blaming eHarmony. Not that there's been a plethora of guys that I'm ready to get married to or anything like that, but I've been writing about all my random crap to them, instead of posting it for the whole world to see. I'm tempted to post a few of the conversations, just because it would put up everything that's been going on.

For example, the DGA has a training program for Assistant Directors that I was contemplating applying for, something I've since decided against. Now I think I've decided to make a movie that's been in my head for some months now, but I have to figure out a way to get things for it (i.e. a camera & microphone, releases, editing software, etc.). I'm still going after the ASM thing at work, but I've had about 16 people lately tell me that I need to be in the entertainment business in some capacity. I think they're right. The problem is, every time I think about acting, it involves all those headshots and classes before I can even begin auditions....

I bought a few books last week, one of them wasn't even worth mentioning, but the other one was Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ's Childhood Pal, and it was fantastic. I swear it manages to get in jabs at about 6 different religions, all while being incredibly funny. It's all about Biff and Joshua (apparently his name wasn't really Jesus, that was a mis-translation). They go off on this huge adventure into the East searching for knowledge on how-to be the Messiah. It's really funny because I was raised Catholic, so you can totally see half to 3/4 of this stuff happening, and then the other part of it just being the work of an overactive imagination. I'm sure Jesus had a slightly more human side: he had to grow into his sermons somehow. And I love the part about the beatitudes....

There are fires burning right now. Up in Malibu, down in San Diego, Way up near Santa Clarita. It's emphasizing the fact that this whole region needs rain. I don't know how, but it's making the air unbelievably dry, and I've been drinking crazy amounts of water.

Question of the Day: What's the last book you read?
