Sometimes when my daily workload is heavy, I like to take a break from what I'm doing and make a poster. I do this at least once a day, but today I was particularly inspired by the hitRECord article on Indiewire. So, I thought I'd share today's "break poster".
Though I never had the pleasure of meeting, working with, or knowing Dan - the article today was about the history and future of hitRECord. I thought it only fitting, to remix Dan's record from 3 years ago. Before today, I thought that because of not knowing him it would be only respectful to remain silent in his presence. Recently, I lived at a house for a week with many RECorders who did have the fortunate pleasure of meeting, working with, or knowing him. They changed my mind. Respectfully, in memory of.
CALLING ALL ARTISTS: COME MAKE ART w/ US RE: "MY FAVORITE THINGS!"
You may have heard that I wrote and directed the upcoming movie "DON JON." It's a comedy about this guy named Jon who is very into his things - his car, apartment, body, and the women in his life that he treats like objects on a shelf. I want us all to make art regarding the theme "MY FAVORITE THINGS."
For instance, ask yourself: What are your favorite things? Can you truly love a thing? Can people be considered 'things?' Do our favorite things define us?
I've had this movie in my head for so long now, I'm really curious to see what kind of stuff it inspires us to make together.

"It's not funny!" she screamed
But the crowd disagreed
He remembers the kiss
Not the first
Cool touch of lips
But The Kiss,
Up against the water cooler
In the hallway by Section B
The long, warm journey into Her
Like going back into himself
Like Sunday morning under the blankets
Watching black and whites
With a steaming mug of bitter coffee
She had stepped back from him
And begun to undress, right there in the hall
Her fragile brown body
Too tangible under the strip lighting,
That it made her surreal,
Like the coffee machine
Had become confused
And poured out molten woman instead
