Gnorb Entertainment, Writing 0 Comments

For the past 2 days, I’ve been immersed in film and film culture by attending the St Petersburg Sunscreen Film Festival. At the festival, I took part in what’s called a “pitchfest”, or a way for people to pitch to a bunch of studios at once. By “took part”, I mean, “sat back and watched others pitch.” Yeah. But given that …

I’ve been busy these past few months learning about filmmaking, especially the writing side of things, but also about the audio recording/sound mixing side.

It’s about 15 minutes long, and received nominations for Best Actress, Best Villain, and Best Directing. …

NOTE: This post was actually written about 7 months ago, when I was in the middle of getting tested for a number of conditions. I was hurt and afraid. Its tone will therefore be considerably different than what you’re used to, if you’re a frequent reader. I decided to publish this because I felt it a fair question, one that …

We’ve been buying furniture lately to furnish the new place. For the most part this has involved going to estate sales, garage sales, and antique shops to look for those just-right pieces of furniture. After all, we have a lot of space in the house and don’t wish to fill it with crap. And I subscribe to the theory that …
