It Feels Good to have Finished a Film

One hour at a time. Fuck one day at a time, just one hour at a time.

Oh Summer. Oh Hot Mess. Oh Angry Young & Poor. Oh art. Oh Life.

Oh my.

The week of Fire and Ice

Strange times. Strange weather is always so...fitting. A parallel to our interpersonal lives.

We finally got snow that stuck on Halloween. A week later, one of the guys I'm drinking with at the bar goes home to his cabin and dies in a fire, while I'm driving home looking at the aurora. Then we have freezing rain warnings and over a half foot of snow.

Sometimes things are really beautiful and horrible at the same time, and you have to try to take as much of it in as you can. But you can't take it all in, and some of it falls to the wayside as you make your way through the day.

More actual rain later this week, possibly ice rink conditions? God damn.

-*Drove to Fairbanks.
-Drove to Trapper Creek, a good portion of the way to Anchorage.
-Partied all weekend at a music festival.
-Drove to Fairbanks.

* = Means it was a part of my substance-free tour (IE no drugs) of a play about suicide prevention that I was filming.

I really didn't mean to binge. But with proms, and birthdays, and music festivals...well...shit happens.
Here's a link to my reel review (a video resume of sorts): http://youtu.be/j1iJmA1JVRw

It's a lot better than mine last year. Also totally original, including the music (which was made with the loops in garageband, but is still original).

Good times.

50 below feels like negative balls.

Yes, it's negative balls outside. Probably just under 50 below (F), but it's easier and more accurate to say it's negative balls.

I'm afraid that my professor for my one class today is actually on campus (which is still open) and I'll have to eventually start my car, do my homework, and layer up enough to make it to campus. Cars don't sound happy at 40 below, and I have to let it idle fifteen to twenty minutes to make it happy and warm enough.

The ice fog is so thick I'm having trouble seeing across the street. It's basically zero visibility outside, and after the rain a couple weeks ago, the roads have only gotten more slick and rocky (yes, it was 35 above a couple weeks ago). Driving is a death wish. I'm really tempted to not go to campus today just to not drive.

But, they say it'll be above zero on Wednesday. On the NOAA's radars, you can see a huge cloud formation creeping up the Alaska Peninsula, bringing rain to Bethel and the Yukon river delta. Soon enough it'll slowly mix with the flow of cold air from the north. At least we have over six hours of day light, finally.

My goal for this computer is film editing, so I'm willing to be spendy with it.

"The Beginning is Near"

This is what I want to read at the Occupy Fairbanks March/ Global Revolution Day (Today, October 15th)

A part of FDR"s Last SpeechCollapse )

I am officially helping Occupy Fairbanks. I will try to be at all of their events. As far as I can tell, we're not only Occupy UAF or Ester or just Fairbanks...we are Occupy Alaska.

Please, come show your support, not just this one time. Come by and say hi at Turtle Sex Park at UAF, and discuss what we do, what you can do, and what we all want to change. With thousands of people all over the country getting in on this, I figured if I can't be in NYC itself and change IS going to happen, I want to be a part of it.

And you can be a part of it, too.

See you there!

Dec. 2nd, 2010


Nothing. I can't motivate myself to do anything. Need to fix my truck, do all of this semesters work, register and get financial aid for next semester, buy Christmas gifts, I guess, etc. But I don't really want to do any of it (._.). Well, it shall be turmoil an anguish of a couple varieties until school ends and Christmas finally picks up it's goddamn ass and shoos for another year.

All will be better by Boxing Day. That is all.
