So Jen and I just completed and copyrighted our short screenplay. We are working with our director on the expected budget. We pretty have a film crew set up, but we are looking for an experienced Production Designer.

If any of you have experience in production design for either film or theater, or know someone who does, please leave a comment. We are looking to start shooting in September.

Any help any of you can give us would be GREATLY appreciated!

1. Thank the person that tagged you.
2. List 5 random/strange/weird things about you.
3. Tag 5 other people.

1. Thanks, Alicia

A. As white as I look and act, I am actually Native American (Houma tribe).
B. I am an obsessive collector (so far it's Star Wars, dragons, and vinyl LPs).
C. I'm supposedly allergic to cigarette smoke. However, I do not let it affect hanging with my smoker friends (that's pretty much all of them 'cept for Fred and Jen).
D. I had bigger hair as a child than I do today. (Jeremiah says I looked like Steve Guttenberg.)
E. I was one of the Special Ed kids until I entered junior high. This affected the way I was perceived in my hometown for many, many years.

3. Jen, Rye, Rachelle, Lucy, and Alix, you've been tagged.

Happy Valentine's Day from the Cash family [Feb. 14th, 2006|07:35 pm]
Jeremy Dibble
I swear, this Valentine's Day post isn't as anti-couple and self-loathing as my past ones...little something for the couples and the singles via the Cashes:

"I Walk the Line"
(Johnny Cash)

I keep a close watch on this heart of mine
I keep my eyes wide open all the time
I keep the ends out for the tie that binds
Because you're mine,
I walk the line

I find it very, very easy to be true
I find myself alone when each day's through
Yes, I'll admit that I'm a fool for you
Because you're mine,
I walk the line

As sure as night is dark and day is light
I keep you on my mind both day and night
And happiness I've known proves that it's right
Because you're mine,
I walk the line

You've got a way to keep me on your side
You give me cause for love that I can't hide
For you I know I'd even try to turn the tide
Because you're mine,
I walk the line

"Blue Moon with Heartache"
(Rosanne Cash)

Blue moon out my window
Guess this means goodnight
And you come in and start right in
Not treating me right
Misery's a bore and all its company
I'll play the victim for you, honey
But not for free

I run into that heartache just like a wall
And act like nothing happened to me,
Nothing at all.
Lately I'm amazed at how blind we can be
Lately even dreaming feels like old reality

What would I give to be a diamond in your eyes again?
What would I give to bring back those old times?
What did I say to make your cold heart beat this way?
Maybe I'll just go away today...

I don't care who's waiting at my front door
You know that life don't hold no glamour anymore
How can it all look so right and feel so wrong?
I'll play the victim for you, honey
But not for long.

Maybe I'll just go away to stay...

Okay, I've succeeded in depressing everyone. Shit. I'll make it up to you next year. Hell, let me make it up to you now! Here's video of a guy hitting himself with nunchakus!

There is a God! And She organizes photo shoots for Vanity Fair.



I never thought I'd hear myself say this, but I'm buying a copy of Vanity Fair. And I'm putting the cover on my wall.

I think I've devised a nearly-foolproof test in choosing the future lady in my life. She must answer the following musical question correctly, word-for-word. Try it, ladies. (And don't worry, if you get it right, I won't propose to you or anything...I'll just be impressed):

If I were a carpenter,

And you were a lady,

Would you marry me anyway?

Would you have my baby?

Nagin sighting and Best of the Beat [Jan. 23rd, 2006|11:20 pm]

[Current Mood |enthralledelated]
[Current Music |"You Belong to Me" - Elvis Costello]

So Saturday night I went to the Best of the Beat Awards at House of Blues. I've been into the city a few other times since the hurricane but this was my first true excursion. I brought my mom with me because it also happened to be her birthday, and my dad wanted to tag along too. We arrived in the French Quarter around 5:00, so this gave us an hour to kill before the doors opened. Killing an hour for us roughly translates to walking aimlessly up and down the same section of Canal Street...don't know why. We stopped at one of those tourist-trap-type markets. I think this one was Voodoo Mini Mart, or Mini Voodoo Mart, or VooMart MiniDoo...some shit like that. Anyway, the important thing here is that we kept seeing those damn 'Willy Nagin' shirts. At this point, I don't even know if it's funny anymore...oh, who am I kidding, it's hilarious and he deserves it! Anyway, T-shirts...my dad considered buying one and said "Wouldn't it be funny to walk past Nagin and he saw you wearing a shirt like this?" Sure enough, we're walking towards Decatur Street past Palace Cafe, and who else do I notice eating dessert (of all meals) by the window but MAYOR C. RAY FUCKING NAGIN! I didn't want to get caught leering, so I didn't get to see if it was chocolate mousse. *rim shot*

Yeah, so Best of the Beat was fun as hell. I actually found it be a lot less formal this time around, probably because HOB is a den in comparison to Generations Hall, where the '04 ceremonies were held. Didn't stop me and a good number of other people from dressing up. The awards given out this year were whittled down to the Music Business, Heart Beat, and Lifetime Achievement awards. The recipients for those last two were none other than Irma Thomas and Allen Toussaint, two of the most important figures in founding New Orleans R&B, rock and roll, and pop music. "Home...home...everybody come home" was Mr. Toussaint's impromptu and infectious chant that night. Pretty inspiring coming from a legendary man who had lost his home and probably all of his possessions to Katrina. Proof positive that this Category-3-4-5-who-gives-a-fuck-now bitch of a catastrophe didn't just hurt the poor and anonymous; interview-shy Fats Domino even let news cameras into what was left of his 9th Ward mansion, and this guy friggin' influenced the Beatles! The main point of the night for me, however, was a reminder of how much incredible music could have been lost, and how much of it has returned. The following are bands I cannot BELIEVE I never got around to seeing live until that night:

- Morning 40 Federation (couldn't believe my parents even dug them...this band IS New Orleans)
- Quintron and Miss Pussycat (indescribable...weird...frenetic...unforgettable...they're not bad to look at either, and they use puppets!)
- Michael Hurtt and His Haunted Hearts (real-deal rockabilly/old-school country courtesy of one of my fellow OffBeat columnists...no drummer, 'cause the bassist is just that powerful)

Needless to say, it was fun. Highlights included CC Adcock joining the Quintron coterie for a free-from synth-swamp-boogie jam, and Hurtt's band closing with my favorite Jay Chevalier song..."if you wanna go to Cuba, better learn to do the Castro Rock!" A night like this solidifies it. I love New Orleans, I love its music, and honestly, I don't think I could live without it. Not to say I'll never leave it, because only time will tell, but it has its own culture that I couldn't imagine not having in my life.

Pinch of vanilla in the chocolate city,

And before I go...what would I be? My blood is mostly Houma Indian, so I'm not even that vanilla. Any suggestions?
