New Blog

Hello my long lost LJ friends, I have moved my efforts away from LiveJournal (as I'm sure you're aware) and have started a new blog called: "Whipped Cream: fluff that makes life fun!" It is basically my rantings on all things fun in life (i.e., movies, music, books, food, restaurants, tech, etc.)...it is the most writing I've done since graduating.



Here is the link: http://www.whippedtopping.wordpress.com

I hope you'll subscribe to my feed, I miss you all!!

Outfest 2009

I just got this in the email from my screenwriting professor who required us to work at Outfest 2008 and guess what?! We're on the '09 email flyer! It's awesome.






I think the most ironic part is that all four of us girls in that photo are straight. Oh well! It was super duper fun and I am thinking I might do it again this year. I love being at opening night, so many cool people to see, free food to eat, and free drinks to pilfer. Last year Crystal and I danced with some actress from Queer as Folk!

bad economy = depression

Seriously, I am massively stressed out right now! I am a college graduate who wants to make movies, living in the city of movies, who can't find a damn job if her life depended on it (which it does). I have scoured craigslist in LA, SF, Portland, Seattle, and even Olympia for work and there's nothing. When I do find something, I send in a cover letter and resume and never hear back. I've sent out employment inquiries to all the major film festivals up and down the west coast. I have called in favors to the people I already know working in the industry. I have called my parents to ask advice and all I get is "I don't know what to tell you, its bad right now." How the fuck does that help?

Then Adam and I discuss moving to WA in order to save some money, possibly put ourselves in a less depressing economy (more for him than me), and try that for a while. I agree that I'm willing to take a break from LA for a while, but we do some research and there is still no work for me. I do more research and figure out that it would cost $3000 (with the current break our property management company is giving us to break our lease, which may expire in a month) to move all of our stuff to Washington. We don't have that kind of money because we don't have jobs! Not to mention, Adam was layed off and now his stupid greedy ex-boss is contesting the unemployment. So, he's not getting any of that money.

I am shit fucked up a god damn motherfucking creek and I don't know what to do! I am so stressed I can't even cry because there is too much other stuff getting in the way. I need a fucking job where I can get paid what I'm worth. So, here's my plea to any and all friends on the west coast. If you know of work (especially in film, TV, or other media fields) please tell me about it so I can at least apply or inquire.

FUCK MY LIFE.

The Fight Goes On



I just saw this for the first time via Facebook and it really moved me. He makes such an eloquent arguement. I just got the email that the CA supreme court ruled in favor of Prop 8 so I'm about to click on some ads and forward some emails, in hopes of stopping this hate.

The Perfect Gender



This is my best work so far in school, it was my 111 Theory and Practice final and I'm really proud of it. Tell me what you think! I am hoping to enter it into some film festivals, most likely the Gay & Lesbian ones like Outfest and Qfest. :)

obama doc

Okay, so I'm trying to work on and finish my Obama documentary in the next few weeks and I need pictures from election night! I really don't want to use the one's everyone has seen online or in the papers...I want personal photos from my friends or acquaintances. I think it would be more impactful. Anway, this is my official call for photos! Please, don't be shy. You will receive credit also. Pass it on.

EXCITING NEWS!!!

So, this is really exciting for me...I'm going to inauguration!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I don't have a ticket, but I am on the waiting list for both senators and my representative. It doesn't matter whether I get a ticket or not, just being there is going to be monumental. Apparently there are balls and galas all over town and the parade starts at 8 or 9am. Observers get to watch on Jumbo trons if they don't have tickets...so it works out either way! I am going to do a documentary short of my journey from So Cal to Wa DC and what Obama's election means to the little person. I am going to have so much footage but it will probably boil down to less than 10 minutes. Adam and I have flights, hotel, and car already booked...now I'm going to be doing a funding drive. Although I know I will go through with this even if I don't get full funding, I am going to try. So, beware friends...you may be getting an email or a letter. :)

Oh yeah, if you want to be interviewed for the doc, let me know.
