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.

My first illustration here. Don't you have some tiny story for my little black cat? :) He is so colouful inside of him. This is actually how I see my black called Mikey. Sometimes I just don't understand why people believe that black cats bring bad luck. It's just a sticker. My little love is one of the best things which could happen to me. I love black cats.
I'm just a black cat.
Black cat with a good heart.
They see me black.
Inside of me,
I'm palette of colours.
The angel of death embraced him gently
as he broke free from the demon of life's clenching claws.

This isn't very good but if someone can remix it and make it better that would be great, I can upload the psd file on request x
Monuments make momentous men immortal, but more memorable are mortal men making mere moments monumental.
Each day there was a scheduled show, the band would sit down for an hour or two and sign autographs. We were told that Special Forces and Private Military Contractors would take over security of the base for the time during the concert so that every soldier on station would have an opportunity to attend the concert and meet the band. Some nights, it showed. This particular night, every troop at the base was there, and almost all of them lined up to meet the band after. It was a long night, but the amount of laughter, tears, hugs, friendships, and storytelling made it worth every second for all of us. Even I got asked for a few John Handcocks. Every troop, wether serious and bulky, short and stocky, or tall and skinny, had an air of excitement about them. They don't get this often. It's a piece of home coming to them.
Soldiers who didn't have the typical items to be signed would have the band sign things like the bill of their cover (Hat), guitars, point and shoot cameras, money both American and Iraqi, water bottles... whatever they could muster up. One of the Marine "Combat Camera" correspondants for the Department of Defense's internal news network chatted me up for a solid hour about cinematography and tips/tricks for the 3CCD camera they use, and shared some incredible stories. Amanda if you ever see this, hope you're alive and well!
Even if the band was sweatingly exhausted after their incredibly long set, this was everyone's favorite part.
