It all comes back to this. I’ll never forget the first time I saw this trailer for the greatest game I’ve ever played Red Dead Redemption 2. The way the music builds and swells right around the time Arthur Morgan begins to speak, saying “listen to me, when the time comes, you gotta run and
There has been this idea that I have had for quite a while to make this post. It started out titled “Arrival, Partisanship, and Trump (maybe).” I added maybe in parenthesis because dealing with Trump as an idea, a person, and all that comes along with his presidency, what people believe about him, on either
As Amanda Dobbins would say on The Big Picture podcast from The Ringer. I’m “showing my true colors a bit much.”
I had no idea how else to start this post other than giving you the video that inspired it. You should watch. Forewarning, there are spoilers involved. So maybe watch the movie first. I watch that video and I think of… well, a lot of things. I mean how could you not with a title
If you couldn’t tell by the fact I make TikTok videos out of old husker highlights I’m a Nebraska boy born and raised. Well, I’m 29 years old now. A man. Or, a man-child. Whatever you want to call me you can, but I live in Bloomington, Illinois. I moved here from Windsor, Colorado. I’ve
Still remember trying to make some sort of allegory for relations between men and women with this back in 2016. I don’t really know about it anymore. You know the feeling, especially about film school work.
Second short film I wrote and helped direct at film school. I think it was okay.

50% of all donations to the blog will go to the Schizophrenia & Psychosis Action Alliance. If you don’t know what Authority is it is the second book in the Southern Reach trilogy. If you don’t know it is a fantastic book. In my opinion that is. Someone needs to find a way to adapt
I don’t remember why I named this Anima. Shared it with some gas station clerk in Nebraska one time if he wanted it. He never got back to me so I don’t know if this has been made already or not by somebody. I assume it hasn’t. Anyway, here it is if anybody wants to
I’m a screenwriter at heart… No that isn’t exactly true. Hmmmm? I’m a screenwriter by choice? Still doesn’t sound like the complete truth even if correct, but it doesn’t truly matter in this instance. What does matter is that I am a screenwriter. Technically aspiring. Which means I have ideas for and about movies a
Edited over the course of a couple days until the verdict from the Derek Chauvin trial was rendered. There are many things I have forgotten in life. Of course, many things I’ve remembered as well. Yet what I do remember I tend to remember in little bite sizes. Pieces of memories that once, seemingly long
There is one movie I will adore for all time. In fact there is much more than one I adore. I’m a screenwriter (technically aspiring) and I’ve seen a lot of movies. Truly I can’t tell whether I adore the film I speak of more than the Lord of the Rings trilogy, Alien, Arrival, or
I said in a previous post that I grew up in a Christian family. So the process of my leaving the faith was, well, hard. What is also true given my mental illness and the way it came about is that I am still quite scared that god may be real. Which, logically, to me,
