I went to a seedy AM/PM in Point Loma, a seaside area of San Diego that has both rich & poor people. The cellphone photo is not the best because it was taken at night but I saw this poster for some kind of weird wax toy that has a straw coming out of colored noses. Apparently, the child who plays with this toy is supposed to pick which color nose he/she wants to suck their drink out of. Lovely.
One thing about the Fringe Festival is that it can make old deteriorating buildings that are on “the fringe” of acceptability here in San Diego trendy with art. This sexy Burlesque dance troupe is quite an example.
Against my better judgment, I decided to spend my paid vacation going to Sedona, AZ on a bus. It was a luxury bus with air conditioning, TV, and free WI-Fi. But the schedule was conspicuously missing before the trip. I found out after we were held “captive,” the only drawback is that we had to be on the bus every day by 8AM. I’m not sure if you would call it a vacation or a job.

Here’s a great shot of the red rock candy mountain Sedona Wilderness.
As you can see from these pictures, the trip was beautiful fun. I will be blogging more about it in future posts and even adding some video.
Dreamed this morning that I was almost eaten by a tiger. It came at me and I was so afraid that all I could do is cover myself on the ground, putting my body into a tuck and roll position. It passed right by me. I felt incredible anxiety but also grateful it didn’t get me. It came at me again, and the same thing happened. It passed right by.
Two guys popped up and gave me a fruit salad to feed to the tiger and distract him. I figured the tiger was gone so I took a bite of the fruit salad and I didn’t like how it tasted so I spit it out and then I spilled it on the carpet. I felt upset that I spilled it. How can I protect myself and feed the tiger now? The dream ended. .
I had a day off on Tuesday so we went to world famous Stone Brewery in Escondido, CA which is located at Citracado Parkway, a beautiful citrusy avocado street name. It’s a very unique place where they not only brew many different kinds of beer, but have a Stone Brewery Restaurant, and a beautiful place to walk where you can see many synthetic natural scenes like the ones shown below. It’s kind of like Busch Gardens here in San Diego or a beer Disneyland. It’s a tad on the odd side though because everywhere you look you see their company symbol of the devil. I asked one of the waiters if the place was cursed. He said “No, but the symbol is there to put a curse on their competitor’s bad beer. I tried a dark beer sampler, and it was really geither, except for the icky mint curry on the side and most of the food was organic. The apple cheese platter was amazing! I’ve never had a tastier apple, probably because it was organic too. The prices were kind of high though.
Actually, the devil like symbol may not be evil after all. Perhaps the owners of this billion dollar facility were pagans. It seemed that they worshipped the beautiful nature all around them and Pan, a pagan symbol of a man with wings and a tail, was a nature god who was worshipped before he was demonized by Christianity. Lots of stone symbols here too. My advice to you, “Everybody Must Get Stoned.”at the Stone Brewery.

I wrote and filmed this screenplay and since I know Adobe Premiere Pro, I can edit it too.
It’s really great to have an editing workstation on my big screen TV. You
can see all the details in a shot so you can edit more precisely.
My thanks to all who worked on this trailer in progress including actor Paul Landrum, videographer, Dan Dorschel, actress, Tenesee and others. Special thanks to Computerbears.net for setting me up with this big screen Windows 10 workstation.
