I realized I haven’t actually written an update in a while. I’ve sent through little movies, but not much writing. So here’s writing (even if done with thumbs in an airport after sleeping for 11 minutes, so please forgive any insomnia-fueled thumb mistakes).
The good news (he says self-involvedly) is that a new song of mine, entitled ‘be the one’, which is in the movie ‘the next 3 days’, has been short listed for an academy award for ‘best original song’. Yes, I guess I’m bragging, but it makes me happy. Also lucy walkers ‘waste land’ won film of the year at the international documentary awards, and has also been short listed for an academy award. Oh, and my friend mylene farmers album just came out and debuted at #1 in france and other european countries. And the song ‘wait for me’ is being used in the a+e show ‘intervention’, which makes me happy, as I have a long and first hand history of people’s lives being decimated by substance abuse.
Ok, that’s my list of stuff from an airport with 11 minutes sleep. Or that I’ve had 11 minutes sleep. The airport seems well rested.
I’m currently headed to l.a where I hope to not be cold. I love l.a standards of cold. If it gets below 60 degrees fahrenheit (around 13 degrees centigrade) people put on thick sweaters and long underwear and light fires and worry about freezing to death. But, generally, its nice to not be genuinely freezing cold when you can avoid aforementioned freezing cold.
Ok, time to get on the plane. I’ll try to write more when: A-im not falling asleep And B-im not writing with my thumbs
Oh, here’s a random camera-phone picture of a nurses office in the basement of a school near my studio. I thought it looked scary.
