Life, Nematodes, and Zero Effect

I agree with anyone who says Zero Effect is one of the greatest existential movies ever made, if only because of a single line…

Who Needs Empathy?

Doors that people occasionally open to help us understand them don’t ever stay open. They require the same level of nurturing + gentle-reign-holding each + every time we endeavor to make safe passage near + through them.

Last night, in a dream of all things, I was reminded of a very real encounter that changed my perception for so much the better.

Ever made a 10-second film using your phone or tablet? Evanston’s District 65 Green Team is a committee dedicated to helping promote sustainability in our communities + schools. This year, we’re promoting the idea of Reuse, Reduce + Recycle through a 10 Second Film Festival.

Work looks the same as play. It’s difficult to tell if you’re on Insta or looking at that spreadsheet accounting just sent over.

TAG, you’re it.

Yesterday was kind of a big deal, celebrated quietly inside my own heart. It was the 10th anniversary of the day I completed a labor of love that changed my life for so much the better.

Star Wars, Role Models + Making Choices

Few things are more satisfying to geeky parents than watching Star Wars with their child(ren) for the first time and noticing which character they take to. I was 5 years old when I saw it, my first movie. It wasn’t just a movie. It was a drive-in movie. It wasn’t just a drive-in movie. It was Star Wars.
