A question: "Every day I have an idea for a movie, sketch or TV show (usually involving people I know) and it makes me wish I had a machine that could translate my scenarios and ideas into a visual medium that others could watch.
Does anyone else ever wish they had a machine that could put their ideas into reality (movies, TV shows etc)?"
My reply: I don't think any machine can substitute storytelling, styling or layout experience (yet). And if it could, I wonder if its owner would agree with its output.
Perhaps that is why this blog post is kind of important after all. If I then act on it, and say definitively goodbye to Star Wars (and the new Marvel comics).
Well, I do.
And it felt like a relief, despite the void.
But voids are there to be filled. And maybe a few new TV-series about some sprawling epic fascinating scifi universe can wait, anyway. Maybe it would be better to create something myself. Or maybe it would be better to create more quality time with friends and family.
Banal, yes, but isn't it true?
Got the crime website version 1.0 finished and it felt good, even if it is not completed yet and I have not been paid yet and all sorts of other things are not getting done.

Wouldn't it be more convincing and powerful and thus beneficial to the purpose of The Blog to go out and start showing it to the world at a turning point, when people can begin to believe that yes, this is not just a ludicrous ambition - it is actually starting to come true?
She is a sweet bright young thing and I'm sure she will move on to do great things, but she also says that she figures Eastern Europe has got "more culture" than Spain. A fact she will investigate on interrail while traveling 22 countries in 3 weeks.
So right there and then I don't mind too much having 18 years on her. Maybe I have something to show for them after all.
Movie money logic follows the same formula as our forlorn hopes for life, sometimes: That it stays the same and that we can relive success upon success and don't have to take risks or venture into new territory.
