My short film– Suite — got accepted into a festival. The Macon Georgia Fim & Video Festival, to be precise. Not a big festival by any means, but it does allow me to see my film projected in front of a theatre full (or half-full) of strangers, as well as giving me the impetus to submit it to other festivals.

Some things are going well.

Anna Nicole Smith

My cell-phone makes me feel lonely, so I have begun to turn it off and leave it at home whenever possible. This has resulted in a bizarre phenomenon I can only describe as “phantom cell-phone,” in which upon feeling a strange vibration I immediately reach my hand for the cell-phone that isn’t actually in my pocket.

Who’s in charge here?

I’ve stopped instant messaging, too, and I’ve been trying to avoid the mass media whenever possible. I do know that Anna Nicole Smith died, and the fact that this is a headline is still troubling me.

And then there’s this strange sense of postmodern relief — nobody can contact me, but nobody can’t contact me, either.

Nobody can leave messages, however, and therein lies the rub.

Earlier tonight, I put a stuffed monkey in my oven and took a black & white photograph of it.
