|07:24 am - San Francisco Pics|
Some pics from our trip to San Francisco...
Wendy and Bryan. Wendy is Bryan's friend from high school. She's a musician and an intuitive healer.
Here she's making Bryan drink her tea using her mental powers alone.
We took a trip into Berkeley to catch the vibe in one of the most liberal cities on the West Coast.
"Your needle mends my moth eaten heart."
Before the screening, Bryan gave a phone interview with Variety. They're doing a piece about the nominees in the "Someone to Watch" award category that should come out the week of Feb 22nd.
We had a good crowd at the screening.
Bryan's Uncle William and Aunt Inga came to the screening. This picture was taken before they were scandalized by DP. Actually, they both seemed to really enjoy the movie.
After the screening I watched as the left side of Bryan's body was sucked away by those ghosts in Harry Potter.
The next day we went to an amazing place called the Exploratorium: The Museum of Science, Art and Human Perception. It's this crazy place where you can play with all sorts of science experiments. On one exhibit I was able to see the veins in the back of my eye. There was a device that made ice without freezing temperatures, a room that made people small, and a cafe with expensive junk food.

|12:26 am - The Seth|
Met with Seth tonight. He's going to be a producer on Cassidy Kids, along with Bryan. He can help get the job done. He's great, smart, has lots of ideas and is 100% dedicated. Somebody else who knows Seth told me that he thinks that Seth will be head of major studio some day. I think he's right. Amazing to be working with so many talented people.

While we were in SF we went to an Sushi/Oxygen bar. Apparently you plug a tube in your nose for 10 minutes for $8 (though they recommend that you do it for 25 min, at $15) and you're supposed to feel high on life I guess. We just drank the beer.
We also met the guys who made something called "Raiders of the Lost Ark: The Adaptation." Basically these three guys did a shot for shot remake of Raiders back when they were 12 years that's accurate down to the last details -- trucks, planes, boulders and arabs. I'm dying to see it because like them, I was (and still am) a Raiders fanatic. I think their film has become some kind of a cult movie... they hinted that it would be picked up by a distributor in the near future, though I'm sure they'll have some clearance issues with Paramount who owns the original.

|06:26 pm - Indie Madness|
We're in San Francisco where we have a screening at the SF Indie Fest. Last night was the opening night film -- the film was something called "The Heart is Deceitful Above All Things" and if you love to celebrate all-things-child-abuse then this is your flick. It was a trully offensive film for anyone who has a beating heart. The film follows a seven-year old boy who is, for some unexplained reason, taken away from his foster parents and handed over to his deadbeat, drug-addicted, bowel-churning mother (played by Asia Argento, daughter of Italian gore filmmaker Dario Argento). In the course of the film's musings, the kid is raped twice, made to take drugs, abused by jesus-freak Peter Fonda, and poisoned. No adult in the movie likes this kid -- and neither, apparently, do the filmmakers. There is no hope, no redemption, no entertainment here, just the pure country celebration and mind numbing glamourization of doing bad things to very small children. It's the kind of movie that makes you want to bring back facism if only to impose it upon the filmmakers who dreamed up this assault on the human heart.

|08:42 pm - Forbidden Gardens|
In Katy, Texas of all places there is a scale model replica of the Forbidden City in China. The Berg and I went out there on a very cold day.
This is the main entrance to the Museum area. It's full size.
This is where they shot Hero.
These are the hundreds of small terra cotta soldiers that were found in one of the king's tombs. These replicas are fiber glass.
Some soldiers trying to hitch a ride back to China.
