I know that! But how?

I got a fortune at an asian restaurant a few days ago.  It reads "pursue your wishes aggressively." Not as good as this one, but a timely message nonetheless.  Its great  how things seem to be pushing you along in the right direction sometimes. I say that because that message is kind of what this blog is about.  I want to be more productive in my life, specifically in film, and I figured that starting something that I'd have to contribute to on somewhat of a regular basis would get me on track to that end.  Anyways, heres a list of words and phrases I like and dislike.
Stupid? Maybe.
Productive? I don't know...

  1. CERTAIN - because it's a word that refers to something specific that shall remain anonymous.  
  2. QUAINT - because it itself is. 
  3. IGNORANT - because most people who use it are ignorant of its definition. 
  4. GROWN-UP - because its what kids call adults who are on their side. (You don't want to be an adult.  You want to be this.)
  1. "MOST PEOPLE ONLY DREAM OF" - I hate this phrase, because it is just an excuse for people to fall in line and not take risks.  It indicates a lack of  adventurousness.  The only reason 'most people only dream of' some things is because they're unambitious, or afraid, or have distracted themselves from the fact that they only live once and they should make the most of it, not dream of making the most of it.  (R.I.P. Bill Hicks)
  2. NO - Barring some circumstances where you'd be harming yourself or others, its just a hinderance, and there are enough of those in life that you don't need to be adding to them.   
  3. MAYBE - because it pretty much means no. 
I guess I should keep the photo thing going.  Heres me last halloween being a grown-up in a costume from a certain quaint cartoon of which, I'd bet, you may be ignorant.  

Watch this.  Then you'll get it.
Hopefully I can get a few little movies done soon to put up on here.  Stay tuned... that is, if anyone is even listening.  

P.S. That picture of the 'thrilling time' fortune cookie is one my friend Bryce and I received at a chinese restaurant in the first week of a BMX bike ride from pittsburgh to florida.  You can read all about it here.
Here's Bryce's blog too.

I like the idea of a relentless pursuit of your dreams...
