Good Evening faithful readers. Greg Kiernan here again, and if you're anything like me you're trying to find a guide to a better life but don't know where to look.
Maybe it's a post-quarter life crisis, perhaps it's the knowledge that I'm simply getting older, but one thing is for sure: this is not exactly the life I pictured I would have at my age. I mean, when I was a kid I always figured that I would have my life figured out by twenty-five. My lucky number was twenty-five and back then I considered twenty-five dollars a lot of money. When he was twenty-five my father got married, conceived my older brother, graduated from medical school, got a good job and had his first son all within that same year. I guess I figured I would follow a similar path. I'm not sure if I'm making any progress.
Now I'm twenty-six and I have accomplished none of those things my father did at my age. Go figure, right? Some times I wish there was some kind of GPS device that could guide me through life -- but then again, given my history with Mapquest, that would probably just lead me off a cliff or something. Nevertheless, considering all of our advances in technology, it would be nice to have something reliable to point you in the right direction.
As it just so happens my good friends at Blue Damen Productions have another future masterpiece in the works. But rather that give you all the story details I will point you in the right direction. They have posted a short video online about their upcoming project "Recalculating" -- the story about a miserable middle-aged man who winds up relying on his GPS device to help him reunite with his estranged family. If this story intrigues you (as it does me) please visit Kickstarter.com, search for "Recalculating" and watch my buddy Pete have an unlikely conversation with his smart phone. It's both charming and informative.
This may further intrigue those of you in or around the Elgin area; the project is set for production this May and will be shooting in your neighborhood. So keep your ear to the ground (but not if you're standing in the middle of the street).
So that's "Kickstarter.com", search for "Recalculating" and at the very least enjoy the video. And I must admit now I feel better.
Until next time, see you in the movies!
