Matt Fraction's post on Paul Pope
and Devin Faraci's latest piece on things he loves
inspired me to right something or anything about what I am up to right now.
Got a call last week to work as a PA on Racing for Time
. It is a Lifetime movie, my second, about women from a youth correctional facility who form a track team. This marks my third film I have worked on with a black director (Charles Dutton is directing this one; I have previously worked with Debbie Allen and Carl Franklin)). I see the problem is not that black directors are not working, it is that they are not getting prestige
Currently reading Meg: Primal Waters
and Wooden Boats
. The books are stacking up though faster than I can read them.
Been watching our Netflix pretty consistently. This week we have Thank You for Smoking
at the theaters this past weekend. Wonderful movie. Much more for adults I felt than kids. Still Sippy liked it and apparently quoted from it yesterday. Good movie to add to the foodie film cannon as well with such films as Like Water for Chocolate.
Writing is all over the place right now. Bits and piece of different stuff keep coming out. Nothing consistent. Hopefully once I get done with Racing for Time (or things slow down in the office) I will get to figure some of this stuff out.
That is where I am right now.
Anything else anyone wants to know?
