It’s been an interesting few weeks.Sometimes sticking up for what you believe in means either loosing a friend or breaking ties temporarily or even permanently.

I recently had a “so called” music friend visit emotional hell on my soul. I’m not calling names, but if you follow my music projects you can figure it out. I’ve always had a bad habit of letting people get too close to me and my music, sometimes too fast. When you put your trust in someone who’s perhaps not the most trust worthy person or doesn’t have your best interest at heart. In my experience, if someone tells you that they are your best friend, or you are their best friend within a few weeks of spending time around them, chances are there is some emotional instability at play. It happened twice to me and I sincerely think the two folks in question have sociopathic tendencies.

I’ve had a real “do nothing” kind of long weekend for July 4th. I took Nancee out to breakfast as her favorite restaurant, then to a shopping mall about an hour away and set her up with a bunch of spa activities, then bought her an expensive hair straightener. She seemed to have a good time, but I’m just not a big fan of crowded spaces. I also got my recently purchases iPhone 5s replaced at the Apple store. The one that they originally sent me had an issue with the glass separating in one corner. Of course dealing with AT&T’s sub standard service it was incumbent upon me to go and get the replacement in an Apple store an hour away. They want to put another $800 hold on my debit card to mail it which is total BS considering the phone didn’t even cost that much in the first place.

Anyways, that was Friday. Saturday I pretty much hung out at the office and caught up on some episodic TV watching and messed with a few renders. Still pre-vising a flash back scene from my new script. That sort of led me to looking at the C For Chaos Web Series footage. I couldn’t seem to find the desire to work on it. That’s kind of the sad part of the whole thing. I care about finishing that project but when I feel completely dissed by someone, it’s hard to find the drive to work on their project.

It’s not like I’m not still friends with JT, but it is a friendship I’ve had to redefine for myself and unfortunately, I think that at least for the near future we won’t be working together. I then decided to pull out some old footage I captured from one of the archive tapes. It’s a little skit originally created for our review of Terror In The Pharaoh’s tomb. Back in those days, we actually had fun working together most of the time. Anywho, I decided to reedit it as the original keying and backgrounds were kind of lame. The whole appeal was that we threw the thing together in 5 minutes on a tiny out door green screen. We improvised our costumes and weapons. Like I said, fun!
