Wow! Harvey live on the internet in a jazz opera! Joyce too! Check out the website here. It’s going to stream live on January 31st, at 8P EST. Don’t miss it. And what a great title: LEAVE ME ALONE!
Back at the end of August, we posted about the How We Work site that showed various writers’ rituals and methods. Last month, Scott Macaulley hipped us to Daily Routines on “how writers, artists, and other interesting people organize their day”. From filmmakers, to drinkers & drug takers, to Ben Franklin, this one hits on many of our heroes. After all the journey is the destination, and getting lost is half the fun.
I am working on my list of heroes, and John Waters is on it. I read his book Shock Value before I actually saw any of his films. It opened up my mind as to what I might be able to do in film. When I moved to New York, I pursued a job at New Line Cinema. This was before Nightmare On Elm Street; I knew them as the home of Pink Flamingos. I got a gig inspecting their 16mm. prints and just getting to share an elevator with John and witness that mustache live gave me enough hope to get through the next year.
It’s been about five years now since I swore off cable TV. It all felt like the same with one or two distinctions. I have always preferred my news in print form, and of course the WWW provides the opportunity to always find what I missed.
