Okay, starting to write again. We'll see how it goes.

Sent out UNION to some competitions/fests - Bluecat, Austin, and Writers on the Storm. I'll keep anyone who gives a poop updated, and post any feedback (from Bluecat & Writers).

Touching up an old script that was requested off of movie-bytes.com called Dritwood. Basically a road crime comedy that takes place across NJ. I shot a trailer for it in 1998 on Super 16mm. I'll post it if I can.

Going to start a new script soon. I've got plenty of other ones already started but this one is important. Cathartic, perhaps. Been a real shit year, so we'll see how this one goes.

As for my box office guesses so far it's been hit & miss.

Iron Man - I said 330 million and it's at 297+ million. Might not hit 330 but might hang around to get close.

Indy - I said 290 million. It's at 276 and stills trong so it should pass 300.

Kung Fu Panda - I had at 140 and it's at 117 and strong as hell. Likely to get over 200 but Wall-E will knock it down this week.

My 2 that were WAAAAYY off were Sex and the Shitty (I had at 40 million, oops) and Speed Racer (I had at 180-190 - double Oops.)

Music-wise I'm listening to Editors, Interpol and the new albums from Weezer (not all great, but some stellar tunes) & Coldplay (so far it's amazing).

Hey dude! Hope all gets better soon, and that you continue keeping your head above water.

I'll be in NJ and NYC for July and August, based out of my 'rents place in E Brunswick. Maybe at some point we can catch up for a drink or something.

The new album by the Notwist is pretty awesome, as is the new Wolf Parade.
