Thanks. You have interesting prose there. They have a cool hypnotic effect and the punchlines are solid.

Here's the thing. Going through a very rough patch two years ago. Everything looks bleak. A friend picks me up. He promises that if I get my act together he'll hook me up with the hottest chick in town. Probably full of shit, right, but still a noble effort. He was right anyway. Couldn't let time just pass me by. So I hit the boxing gym, 40 carb diet, 50 push ups, 100 sit ups, the whole 9 yards.

Long story short, a few months later the guy comes with this amazing English woman. Gold hair. Perfect body. Perfect everything. So the guy gets drunk and here I am spending the night with this incredible girl breaking down every Skins episode. Then it all comes down to this special moment, right? This moment that always just kind of happens. And all of a sudden hits me. After all the shit I've been through and all the effort I've made I really don't want to end up being the asshole who's going to start shit with another dude's girlfriend. It just doesn't feel right. So I guess I do the right thing. I back up off like a pussy with a major hard on. Anyway, we've kept a pretty nice friendship online, nothing fancy.

Now here's the part I like. All it takes is one good deed, and all of a sudden all my blessings are multiplied tenfold. Life is perfect. I'm a truly blessed guy, and I just have to keep reminding myself that every day.

I have a cousin of mine that's a Franciscan monk. The guy had been talking about it since he was five years old and everybody thought he was just fooling around until he actually became one, so I think of him as the real deal. Huge amount of respect for him.

I guess people spend to much time thinking about the danger and uncertainty of a situation and when you look at the big picture it's really part of the big adventure, an episode of what is called life. Like any other story every life has a conflict and a climax, and when you look back you see how big and interesting that story was. From what you're describing it seems you're living a great life. If you feel lost and full of uncertainty, you could accept that conflict as rather another episode of that big adventure. No doubt I would rather be in your shoes than spend all day playing PS4 a fat slob and going online to hate on George Lucas.

Something incredible happened to me once. It's something that was never supposed to happen. Almost as if the stars aligned themselves perfectly to make something that was impossible possible. Although I care deeply about it, and I believe in it as a matter of faith, the truth is that I have forced myself to act with indifference, simply because whatever it is I really can't control it. It's completely out of my hands. I like to think that it might truly mean something, but it's really not for me to decide. If all the pieces fall into place, they will fall. If not then it is what it is. I mean even writing it just sounds fucking odd to me.

Pretty much. I can't grab it, but I can't run away from it either. I can't escape it. It's just there. For some reason it annoys the hell out of me, but I also get that feeling that you get when you know it's something truly special. Truth is I took things for granted when I should've been a lot more grateful, and I only have myself to blame.

If I had to describe myself as a movie character I'd say I'm like that Ralph Fiennes character in the movie Quiz Show, pretty much a good guy who did a very bad and dishonest thing. But on the other hand it wasn't as bad as to not being able to forgive myself and aim to live a better life. It's one of those things where people just fuck up in a major way and there's no reason why they can't put it all behind. Whatever happened happened. Trying to make excuses about it would never change anything.

How can the sun
Would bless such angels
As blessed as they be
When they see
That a city stands
In such ruin
While a fallen beast
Will feast
As they cry

Check this one out. It's a cool one. So I have this little kid nephew with a bit of autism. He's so obsessed with airplanes that they're taking him to New York next weekend just so he can hang out at the JFK International airport. Of all the places in New York they're going to spend half a day strolling the freaking airport. It's his version of Disneyland. Now that's just one special little kid. :lol:

How about the lights
In a town of children
Dancing with the spirits
Dancing
Eating
Drinking
Wasting away
A conoction of happiness and mimics
Endless banquets of tears
In the desert

Here's to new beginnings. :mrgreen: and being super green! Me on first filmed production, lucky for me I got the lead bad guy role. I was opposite of SWAT team members and all 4 branches of the miltary's Special Forces. Unlucky for me it was only shown in the military, no IBDM credit, but it did inspire me to study Muy Thai & Silat. Which is what Special Forces uses for martial arts. They said that film was a reverse confidence builder. Sad to say my character was the last one standing. They said it was to fuel the military with rage. :twisted: Still makes me sad to think about.... :evil:

Can you be a little more elaborate about Black Hawk down. I suppose you are trying to be funny about Vietnam. Not sure the lives lost is much to laugh about. The documentary I was in about the war in Afganistan. Was the worse lose we had. All U.S. troop perished RIP. I hope that is the worst villain role I ever have. I was thinking of Osama Bin Laden for my part.

All I have to say after I filmed that documentary it left me in downward spiral for a little bit. Training some Muy Thai and Silat really helped. My instructure was a drill sergeant for Special Forces, he worked with Navy Seal, Green Beret, and Rangers. I had to keep telling myself it was just a role. My instructure really kept me afloat. Thanks for your intrest! Feeling a lot better. The actual battle was a nightmare, making the documentary was a pleasure!

I wish Natalie would go through and explain how she prepares herself for a role. Or how she gets herself out of character.... with less tuff (evil) roles its easier, I am hoping. :? :?
