I would hope that if I ever become really super famous, I would still be a cool person. I would do the A-list movie, but I would also do the interesting Independent project.

I'm not super dedicated to the cerebral stuff like Joseph Gordon-Levitt seems to be -- every single one of his Independent projects is something to make you think, or is there to wring your emotions -- but I could see doing fun little movies or the kinds of movies that someone wouldn't expect me to be in.

As an example, Tom Cruise's cameo was something I really enjoyed in Tropic Thunder. Say what you will about the guy, he's a really dedicated actor. I enjoy watching him on the screen -- that smile! -- and he has good taste in picking movies that suit his abilities. Even the ones that didn't go big are ones that I've been entertained by.

I want to be like that. I want to appear in unexpected places and completely mess with peoples' heads, but I want to be cool at the same time. I want to be big enough that I can say "I don't even care" about my reputation and just do whatever project I please, even the stuff that doesn't pay a whole lot of money at that moment.

In some way, I think of the Twitterverse as being a notebook I write in. I spill out all my thoughts across the page and I imagine the kinds of responses some of my confessions would receive. I open up my heart and I feel as though I'm interconnected to all those beams of light out there.

I whisper and I shout across the silent stillness and someone out there lifts their head and receives. It makes me feel entwined and it's the kind of sensation I never want to give up. Because in the end who doesn't crave unity?

I bounce my ideas off of Twitter and it's like dual conversations happen all the time and I'm the only one that hears both parts. It makes something in me smile.

The sound of the TV playing in the background, just the good bits popping out to my brain, it's like music and magic. The chair creaks with my rocking and I'm in a strangely wistful mood.

I live in the moment and sometimes I feel as though the physical world intrudes on this strange richness living in my own head. Lyrical thoughts sink and flow and I'm just typing and staring and I feel as though someone is here with me, and maybe that other person is just me? I don't know.Read more... )

How cool would it be to one day just put on a pair of overalls and a plaid shirt and just go to some tourist area and talk like the guy from Pet Cemetary? "Uh, yeah, you don't want to go on that there hill. That's the old Indian burial ground where young Mikey Jenkins got chopped up one day awhile back. Yup, you don't want anything to do with that there hill."

I think that would be absolutely hilarious.

I bought some clay and have been playing around with that. * Me and the kids have been watching "Beakman's World," which they really seem to enjoy. * The Muppet movie was actually pretty enjoyable, which I've mentioned before, but that I want to reiterate. * New ideas are constantly popping into my head, which makes it harder to work on the things I've already started. Too many ideas is just as bad as not having any at all.

What I'm working on:
-"The Creeping Chill" [horror]
-"Altredes" [drama]
-"From Diamond to Coal" [mm sci-fi]
-"Just Another Titanic Tuesday" [mm AU]

I guess you can take a few months off to wallow in the depths of despair or whatever. I mean, compared to the whole of your life, what's a few months lost?

What I mean, is that no one should just give up at any time for anything they want. Just because you've lost a few months or years on your schedule of things you want to do, you can still run and catch up. Because you end up with the life you dreamed of and desired; it just takes you a little longer to get there.

Just saw the start of an episode of "Stargate Universe" and I was like "Oh my God, what is this show? It looks so good!"

Bear in mind that I've never watched an episode of Stargate Universe. I ducked out on Stargate Atlantis somewhere during the third season, and other than a stray episode here and there, I was complete out of the show. Not to say out of the fandom, just out of watching the canon episodes. So that lets you know that I have no interest whatsoever in Stargate Universe.

But wow, the order of the clips really made it look good. Like, I was actually thinking "This just might be my new Battlestar Galactica right there" when my brain finally put the clues together and I realized what show it was.

The kids are driving me crazy. No, not for themselves or what they're doing around me, but what they're doing at school :(

The girl came home with her third red card. Basically, the teacher gives three serious warnings, then she has to bring a red card home and I have to sign it. The girl has gotten three already this year.

She just refuses to be quiet in class. She has other emotional problems and stuff, but this is getting ridiculous. Three cards in a month. Sucks.

The worst thing is that her being around makes the boy act out, so together they're just a couple of hellions.

I don't think I would ever be able to write a precocious kid!fic. Why? Because kids are jerks.

-OMG, I just saw the sharpest thing ever.

The Assassins Creed game trailer was frickin' awesome. It was like a whole cartoon movie compacted into two minutes. It made me wish there was a whole movie.Read more... )
