2014 Bitch Please!

In this post, it will be the last before the New Year. So I’m going to bitch a bit more, also I have a plan for the next year. Yeah if you kept up with me this year with my posts, then you know I’ve done that a lot this year. It’s what I do best, but with my last post about…


2014 Bitch Please!


In this post, it will be the last before the New Year. So I’m going to bitch a bit more, also I have a plan for the next year. Yeah if you kept up with me this year with my posts, then you know I’ve done that a lot this year. It’s what I do best, but with my last post about unbroken then you know that things need to change within my mind set.

So begins the bitching! I hate living the way I do, but don’t do much to change it. Nevertheless, I have nothing really yet people want me to give them things, but yet, they have things yet give nothing. Why is that? Is it because we have faith in God more than those that have because we want to make it to tomorrow? I want to help those who have nothing yet I have nothing to give. I want to have my dreams come true, but I’ve been told that’s not realistic so stop dreaming.

When out driving, no one uses their blinker, or they have a missing break light or head light. People run red lights and blow through stop signs. People pull out in front of you and then go slow only for the next person to speed. Has man’s intelligence taken a hit? I know so. We have become dumber, and no one seems to know what to do. Ugh!

We all live our lives the way it falls, or we make it the way we want it. 2015 is my year to change my mindset and to change me. I want to write movies so why not make my own. I can come up with a short to show my writing and directing. I will also show how talented I am with no budget.

We all have a gift from God, and this is mine but not knowing anyone in the industry. It’s hard to become known. In addition, I may have missed opportunities within my email, because I archive them. I don’t want to be disappointed, because I don’t have the resume to support what I say I’m good at.

Another bitch! I have OCD, and I rock in any chair but family used to have rocking chairs until I came along they got rid of them because they didn’t want for me to rock. WTF? I was driving in the snow, and I have a guy/gal tailgating. The weather deems us to slow down and be cautious yet, no.

I know people will say bitch please I’ve got more problems than you. How are you dealing with them? I want to know!
My many goals for the coming year have been shortly told above, but I need to make my dreams my goals, and my goals need me to work harder even while becoming smarter in my craft. I need to be more involved with what I say and do what I say. I will not sell my soul to the devil. I will wake up early-on Sunday and watch church shows since I can’t handle a huge group of people. I try to keep my mind busy, so I won’t freak out, but then I miss out on the message.

I hope to blog more and hope to capture an audience more than me and my mom (yep I do have a handful now). I will take more pictures of OUR dogs. Yes, I’m married if you didn’t know that already. Yes, she deals with my shit.

So Here’s to a new me and new year!


2014 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here's an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 370 times in 2014. If it were a cable car, it would take about 6 trips to carry that many people.

Unbroken Broke Me

I went to a movie this weekend with my mom. She hadn’t gone for two years. She and I chose Unbroken. Yes, my wife went and my nephew. The movie was great, but it made me think about my life.

Unbroken


I went to a movie this weekend with my mom. She hadn’t gone for two years. She and I chose Unbroken. Yes, my wife went and my nephew. The movie was great, but it made me think about my life.

I know I say I’ve been through hell and back but different people have different levels of hell. Mine compared with the lead and life story of the movie, my hell is nothing. He had to deal with more mental and physical challenges than I have ever gone through.

My hell has been more financial and mental than physical and mental.  I’ve struggled with “am I good enough of a writer?” Will my words be read or seen on film? This has plagued me for years and now that I’m financially burdened. Broke beyond broke living off the government and not able to get a job (been without for far too long and no references) I don’t know where I’m going to get motivation. Oh wait, I just saw Unbroken. “If it’s to be it’s up to me!” Not the quote said throughout the movie, but I like this one.

I need to motivate me. If I don’t want to live off the government, or if I want my writing to be seen I need to work hard and persevere. I must work I must do I must read and learn I must write.

As far as the movie as a movie, it was good. It was a bit long but instead of telling the story, they showed it. When trapped on the raft it was a bit gruesome but not so much to divert your eyes. I was interested and entertained.

I would recommend this to anyone who wants motivation to live life to the fullest and to stop bitching about how life these days are too tough to live because we have never gone through what he went through.

Scrooged


I missed posting this before Christmas so here it is.

When it comes to the holiday season and holiday movies, you think of classics like It’s a Wonderful Life and a newer movie National Lampoons Christmas Vacation. When you think of another classic A Christmas Carol, I like to watch an inspired version called Scrooged.

This movie when initially seen when I was a kid. The dead old boss wasn’t transparent he was solid, and I think it was the first time I saw a zombie-like creature. It scared me. I do hate scary movies these days, but at times I’ll watch them, but in fast forward. If they need to have my thoughts on them, script and all. Mr. Analyzer.

Bill Murray takes the role and makes it feel like groundhogs day. Where it’s funny at times, and he takes the written words and makes us think. There is a great speech at the end of Scrooged that does this. Dialog can carry a movie if it’s done right. This makes me think of how to make my words easy to understand but emotionally charged and sounds intellectual as if I as a writer knew how to write proper English.

The visuals were great for the 80s. They didn’t do a lot of shots that they had to super impose Bill’s character when showing scenes from the past. They also used puppetry when it came to the ghost of Christmas future.

All in all, great memories with a great flick well-written and acted. I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys Bill Murray and the Christmas Carol.
