I care. I care a lot. About the Earth that is. You know, “The Planet” (differentiated in this discussion from “The Other Planets” by the omission of the adjective “Other”, just to be clear).
One of the specific aspects of The Planet that concerns me the most is its temperature. It keeps me up at night. No, really! It makes me wake up at 3:30am in pain and frustration…. mostly because I have a really nasty cold and can’t stop coughing because my room is too hot.
“Aha!” you cry, “then you belong to us, to our Society!”
“What society?” I stammer, unexpectedly caught in a first person narrative.
“Why, the Earth “Is Too” Getting Warmer Dammit Society,” you answer, hands on hips, caught between triumph and desperation. Continue reading E”IT”GWDS
Hey! It’s a new podcast, the first in a long time… download it now!! This summer will mark my third year away from the film business and even though I visit enough film sets around town to satisfy my craving for the scent of diesel, I realized around the end of 2006 that I’ve been missing a different sort of smell…. the honeywagon; rolling porta-potty of the film industry.

Back when I switched over to WordPress from MovableType I was deep in the throes of learning PHP and CSS and pretty much cobbled together the most outlandish hijack of WordPress ever invented. Since then, I’ve learned a lot more about how WordPress works and came to realize how needlessly complicated the underpinnings of this site are….. so, over the next few months I’ll be tweaking things around a bit. I just wanted to warn you, all four of my readers.
I’ve been a Mac fanboy since my college days in the late 1980’s, back when but a few of those gloriously graphical machines were sprinkled in labs around Georgia Tech. Many were the days that I circled the unobtainable Macintosh IIFX at Tech’s computer store, a machine unimaginable potential (40 megahertz processor!!). Of course I couldn’t afford a $12,000 computer then (or now!), but I did eventually join that miniscule minority of Mac users, none of whom would have guessed that ten years down the road we’d be entering into a “post-Platform”, Web 2.0 era, or that Windows users would eagerly become “Switchers”, migrating to the Macintosh because of their experience with a little thing called the iPod. But then, you already know that story. What you may not know is that there’s a new kind of Switcher on the scene: the Resista-Switcher. Continue reading The New Switchers
