ABOVE IT ALL


 


LINE #1


Early one morning, my first thought awake


Was a burning idea, I just couldn't shake


 


LINE #2


So I crept outside quickly and gathered my tools


But I did my work quietly, suffering no fools


 


LINE #3


I fastened the flappers and stitched all the strings


And that night, at long last, I completed my wings


 


LINE #4


There was no one around to see them unfold


But my breath grew quick and my heart grew bold


 


LINE #5


And soon I was soaring, oh, upwards and on


Til the sky was all ‘round and the ground was all gone


 


LINE #6


And I watched as each object, each person, each place


Became one glowing orb spinning slowly in space


 


LINE #7


And I thought to myself, ‘through the eyes of a bird


This life and this Earth seem entirely absurd’


 


LINE #8


Then I suddenly felt indescribably small


And wondered if anything mattered at all


 


LINE #9


Like what people wished for or what people felt


Or whether the ice caps would finally melt


 


LINE #10


Then, I realized, after an hour or two


That things matter because, well, they matter to you


 


LINE #11


Although what you do won’t change much from up here


It can comfort or crush those you find yourself near


 


LINE #12


This universe may be enormous and strange


But look close to home and there’s much you can change


 


LINE #13


And so I decided, that's just what I'd do


Informed and enthused by my new point of view


 


LINE #14


Once I had landed back home safe and sound


I set about telling my folks what I'd found


 


LINE #15


I left out the part about flying through space


Since they wouldn't believe me in any case


 


LINE #16


But they both smiled bright when I told them existence


Is surely best savored when seen from a distance

Joe crowd "surfing" while killing time until a tiny receiver sound issue was resolved. (Nice socks, by the way) :oD

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.

Cat: I’m gonna say something one of these times, you know?

 

Man: You should, I should.

 

Cat: It’s rude. Just climbing on somebody’s deck tearing things apart, rummaging uninvited. 

 

Man: I’d go out there right now if it weren't so cold.

 

Cat: Me too, if you’d open the door for me.  You know, can't turn the knob with paws, but otherwise, I'd put an end to this.  No doubt.

 

Man: They’re big, right? I mean, for raccoons? They seem big.

 

Cat: Maybe, probably? They’re the only ones I've ever seen. I’ve been outside like 3 times.

 

Man: I don’t know if I’m supposed to wanna kick them or hold them. They’re kinda cute, but look kinda mean.

 

Cat: You don't hold me anymore.

 

Man: Things have just been kind of hectic at work lately and I come home stressed and not really in the mood, I just get so tired sometimes.

 

Cat: I understand, trust me. It's hard out ther for everybody righ tnow. I licked my ass for a solid 10 minutes yesterday, no break. I ran out of breath and by the end of it, I felt like I just needed some time for me. That's all you need.

 

Man: Hey, man, I love you. You’re a good dude, a good cat.

 

Cat: And I love you, when I feel like being held and I'm hungry.
