Neil deGrasse Tyson on Motivation

The problem, often not discovered until late in life, is that when you look for things in life like love, meaning, motivation, it implies they are sitting behind a tree or under a rock. The most successful people in life recognize, that in life they create their own love, they manufacture their own meaning, they generate their own motivation. 
For me, I am driven by two main philosophies, know more today about the world than I knew yesterday. And lessen the suffering of others. You'd be surprised how far that gets you.
Neil deGrasse Tyson


Dave Van Ronk - Last Call

Last Call

And so we've had another night
of poetry and poses
And each man knows he'll be alone
when the sacred gin mill closes

And so we'll drink the final glass
each to his joy or sorrow
And hope the numbing drunk will last
'til opening tomorrow

And when we stumble back again
like paralytic dancers
Each knows the questions he will ask
and each man knows the answers

And so we'll drink the final drink
that cuts the brain in sections
Where answers never signify
and there aren't any questions

I broke my heart the other day
it'll mend again tomorrow
If I'd been drunk when I was born
I'd be ignorant of sorrow

And so we'll drink the final toast
that never can be spoken
Here's to the heart that is wise enough
to know when it's better off broken

Why I Fund Kickstarter and IndieGoGo Projects

The Kickstarter and IndieGoGo films we fund today, turn into the filmmakers shooting major funded projects tomorrow and keep our local Louisiana film industry alive and thriving.

If we don't fund our own local shorts or indie films, then who will?

The only way our local film industry survives, is if we have just as strong a group of creators as we do crews. We need to be creating the content,not just working on it. I will consider our Louisiana film industry a success when a locally created, funded, and shot film wins the weekend box office or wins the Best Picture Oscar.

Self Pity - D.H. Lawrence

Self Pity

I never saw a wild thing
sorry for itself.
A small bird will drop frozen dead from a bough
without ever having felt sorry for itself.

A True Louisiana Based Film Industry

If we want to have a true Louisiana based film and TV industry, then we need to be the ones creating, making, and financing the shows. We need to not just sit back and wait on Los Angeles or New York or any other outside source to bring shows here. The shows need to originate from Louisiana.
