Valentines Thoughts

1518549255238

Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching, and of course, I have thoughts:

1. Am I the only one who thinks the 15th is the REAL holiday? Savings on chocolate is just the beginning. I bought a couple of those steaks that they put into the heart shaped containers. DEAL!

Mango-nificent Love

“The hunger for love is much more difficult to remove than the hunger for bread.” –Mother Teresa

Could both hungers be satiated with a little mango?

I love my Samsung Focus as much as one can love an electronic device, but that is not what this blog entry is about.  I have a developer unlocked device and thus, I have Microsoft’s test version of the latest iteration of Windows Phone, codenamed “Mango”.

This writing is not 100% mango centric.  Many of the apps are available for any major smartphone platform.  There are some features that are built-in to Windows Phone Mango and I’ll point those out.

DalyDose of…Phone Sex. Is it a Date?

I like writing, but it would be so much better to get paid for it.  I came across this opportunity to submit a blog sample to this company starting a website for single people.  They were looking for funny, unique views.  I submitted my DalyDose of…10 Single Resolutions and they responded that they would like a 500 word sample using their test topic.  The test topic is “Does phone sex count as a date?”. 

I took on the challenge.  I transformed myself from nice guy to inner jerk and starting hitting the keyboard.  They wanted 500 words or less….here are my 493: Read the rest of this entry

DalyDose of…Stuck

Stuck is the short film that I made in 2009.  Thanks to the generosity of some talented people, I was able to make this short film for about $500.  Stay tuned after the video for more….

This film stars:
Jeff Daly – http://www.imdb.com/name/nm3560614/ 
Femi Emiola – http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1435292/
Steffanie Siebrand – http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0796809/

The film was directed by myself and Aldo Lara.  Aldo also edited it and I wrote it.
Jayme Lutz was the producer and we were able to use equipment generously supplied by Stormmaker Productions.

As I submit this project to festivals, I am now writing some new webisodes based on these characters who love each other, but don’t always like each other.  The transition to something with a little more of a sitcom feel will brighten up the shooting style and add more “jokes” to the scripts.  Stay tuned!

PLEASE NOTE: That no one’s marital status was harmed during the filming of this project.  In fact, common law marriage is only applicable to 11 states and the District of Columbia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Common-law_marriage_in_the_United_States)
