What do old people know about love?

September 22, 2013

Shooting in 11 days: my thesis film “One More Day”, starring Adair Jameson as Chloe (80) and John Heard as her long-lost crush, Tom (80), who she meets in a Euthanasia Preparedness Center in 2064, two weeks before she’s scheduled to die. It’s going to be awesome.

Part of my research involved hanging out and volunteering at the Orange Senior Center. I also made a few videos there. Here are a few of the seniors who will be extras or play small roles in the film, telling their own true love stories.

Dating advice: the puppy trick

September 14, 2013

Lonely? Want a hot girlfriend? Kill two birds with one stone by getting yourself a puppy. Better still, be like this guy and get two, then go hang out outside the trendiest vegan restaurant you can find.


“Oh, come her, come here, come here… sit for me?” And they do.

If he hadn’t already been surrounded by much cuter blondes in their twenties…

Who is the elephant wo/man?

September 12, 2013

Santiago Canyon is sort of urban greening… A walkway and bike track along a dry, polluted river bed.

I don’t walk it for it’s natural beauty, I walk it because there are no stop signs or traffic lights. And sometimes for the graffiti – like this.


See the elephant. Middle, slightly to th eleft? Above it, the cars roar along the freeway. In the magic hour sun, it has a weird, messed up beauty.

Are you the artist? Every time I see a new elephant I wonder how I could meet you. Maybe I’ll paint my own…


Kids come here to smoke weed and other stuff. It the recent drought has dried up all the mucky water and it smells like rotting algae.

This is my favorite.


See the new one? One the storage unit. It’s Red, which is new. The others were all blue.

God. I miss Sea Point promenade.


I know this looks pretty in the picture but it’s not, not really. The water is rancid. Even the ducks seem to have left for greener pastures. The river was dammed years ago so it doesn’t flow anymore.

Life changing proposals

September 11, 2013

I’m having one of these days – feels like every day is like that at the moment. And it is wonderful. Things are happening so fast with One More Day. I feel blessed and energized. What have I done with Jean? Am I on drugs? Who knows, and no.


Attn: ALL LIFE CHANGING PROPOSALS DUE TODAY!!! Aren’t they always? Written by some joker on the Dodge College production office whiteboard.

Bad news for people who “don’t eat anything with a face”!

September 4, 2013

I wonder if Albertsons groceries were intentionally trying to freak out vegans and veggies – or trying to appeal to those who only eat things with faces.
