Why is it so quiet?

I, Heart, Poperratic

This is awesome:

Now that's the way to handle the elephant in the room. I saw The Heart Is Deceitful Above All Things last year at SXSW. I've thought about it a lot since then and I think it's a really good film. I really need to watch it again to solidify my opinion of it. Either way, I hope the whole J.T. LeRoy "scandal" doesn't overshadow a film that stands completely on it's own outside of all that.

Major congrats are in order for Jaye Luckette (blog) on signing a full record deal. Her wonderful band Poperratic (official site, myspace page) just signed to the indie label Rebelution Records. I wish her much luck and success. She's a true, hardworking artist and she deserves it.

Another congrats to Cammi who had a baby: Curtis Elliott. He'll always be Tophat Ratheath to me.

So, I'm off to SXSW 2006 in a couple of days and then it's a mad fury of industry getting GDMF ready to shoot by March 31.

Props for David

In addition to being intimate "friends" with David I've always been a big fan of his work. So I was happy to see that Girish, who writes a damn fine blog has written a pleasant apercu about David's short films.

Why Does God Hate Freedom

I hate being labeled anti-Bush. I hate that the entire current progressive movement is labeled as such. As if my entire problem with the Oligarchical climate of American Politics can be distilled into a petty disagreement with one man. No, I am anti-fascist. I am anti the entire government and ruling class currently in place. Bush is a pawn and a king. Remove him from power and he is still a piece in a system that hates freedom and everything that cannot be controlled. That is what I'm against.
