Oh, what an amazing feeling this is. And I’ll tell you why… though, understand, I hesitate, for I am a man of superstition, ritual and by and large a creature of habit. I have found better luck not opening my mouth about big things until they’ve been realized. But, I’ve taken a liking to standing up to that bullshit and telling it to fuck off. So…
A few weeks back I had the most important meeting of my life. What may be THE most important meeting of my life. And I think it went well. We’ll see, what we’ll see. I wait with bated breath.
It’s important to remember, when a door like this opens, there’s a lot of opportunity to be found. It’s almost funny, really. I know what this is. I know what it means. I’m overwhelmingly excited. This is that ticket that people talk about waiting for that’s going to set the rest of your life up. Yeah, exactly. Wouldn’t miss it for the world. All I needed was this. The rest? Don’t worry, I know how to take care of it from here.
I’m loyal. Not only am I loyal, I’m always helpful to my peers. It’s not bragging, it’s a fact. I know it, they know it, it’s not a fucking secret. I’m a lot of things, but I’m definitely there for people. So, I find it so incredibly confusing that I attempt to share my new found prospect with some that I know could use the opportunity, and who may also have some talent, but they’re silent. I shrug. Because, I can offer to work with a person, get things going and make shit happen… but if they choose to avoid sharing their work and write me off, then fuck it.
I’ll never dick a person over. Not intentionally and certainly not out of spite. Your life is your life, I wouldn’t fuck with it. My door will always remain open, even if a person chooses to ignore a sparkling opportunity before them. Their loss. I know there are people in this industry who are begging for shots like this. But, hey, if you miss it, not my problem. Remember, though, you waste my time once, you’ll never hear from me again about such matters. I don’t give people the luxury to waste my time twice. We’re all grown-ups here, deal with it.
Back to the inspiration! Finished reading the script for the project in question. I feel positive. Though I’m concerned about certain facts, overall, I am very excited. Let’s do this.
I’ve reopened a couple of projects now, to add an upcoming one I’ve already been working on. All this energy from what’s been going on has reinvigorated my attention to my own work. This is good.
I’m recovering from some sort of gastrointestinal virus that’s had me hit pretty hard in the beginning. Eight days of fun, fun, fun. Had to flake on what was probably an epic camping trip to Mammoth. With thirty heads going, there was know way I was going to share what I had. Plus that drive and my frequent bathroom breaks… nah.
Hit hard enough I couldn’t do anything for my birthday. Still haven’t caught up on that, which I suspect I will soon forget about until next year. It matters, but it doesn’t.
Had a friend in town at the same time, who I hadn’t seen since my last trip to Japan. Which is, yeah, a really fucking long time ago. Couldn’t live up to host status most of the time.
And, cut me out of work for a bit and now I’ve got a ton to catch up on.
That’s alright. I thrive under pressure. Knowing fucking huge things are about to happen, well, that just makes things easier.
Let’s do this.
