"When an old and distinguished person speaks to you, listen to him carefully and with respect – but do not believe him. Never put your trust in anything but your own intellect. Your elder, no matter whether he has gray hair or lost his hair, no matter whether he is a Nobel Laureate, may be wrong... So you must always be skeptical – always think for yourself." --Linus Pauling



Hello, my name is Jack. I'm 33 years old and live in Hollywood, CA. I do not work in the movie business. Yet.

I've started this blog in order to give myself someplace to think out loud as it were. Maybe that should be think in print. Over the next year or so I'll be posting every day about the things that fascinate, obsess, and sometimes annoy me. Sometimes all at once.

It will fairly thrum with interest I promise.

More later.


Is this a gauntlet I see before me?

My friend Michael has given me a challenge. Scroll down to his post for July 7, 2003 "Why I'm doing this."
