- I know
I should be sleeping right now, but holy shit
what I just saw blew my mind.
- So the director
gave me a copy of "Back in Time", the documentary I
was interviewed for earlier this year and lo and
behold, not only was my 3 minute story the first fan
story of the film, they just randomly put me in two
other times as a talking head to talk about the movie.
Once talking about how masterful I thought Back
to the Future 2 was to go back into the first film and
then answering the final question of where you would
go if you had a time machine.
- I mean, I'm
suddenly just part of Back to the Future lore. This is
the definitive documentary on and about the film and,
uhm, wow. And I look good! And GolfKon looks good! And
I just... what the shit! I saw the first talking
head part with Talya and I proceeded to run and
jump around our backyard because I could barely
stand it. Chills, that 4tvs excitement I had in
1998. The CBS stuff, the Comedy Store... that
same shiver. I'm back in... HA - Back in time. "I'm
Back in Time" makes for a good entry title. This movie
makes pitching Hats & Minigolf soooooooooo much
easier, presumably because many I will be pitching to
will have seen this film as it'll be on Netflix! I
mean... wow! How fortunate is that? The credibility to
GolfKon (and the fact that they SHOW Hats
& Minigolf in the film) is priceless. Just
- ...then everyone
went to sleep (Jimmy is staying over) and I skipped
around again and found me a 3rd time at the end...
holy fuck. And it's TOTALLY a me line - "I'm an "in
the moment guy" but if I had to choose of course
we go to the future... past when we're gonna die to
see how we all kill ourselves..."
- Just stunned.
I keep writing that, but I was NOT expecting
this. And I cannot get over how good the lenses were,
and the equipment and just... jesus man. This really
cements 2015 in stone as a monumentally good idea.
Forget the small (shit, not remotely small) fortune
we're making... but that whole REAL reason I wanted
the Time Machine? To make that OTHER career
happen? You know the one I acted like I didn't
care about in the LAST ENTRY? Yeah, this kinda
cements the direction for next year. Wow.
- Also, I should
explain, it wasn't that I didn't WANT a career,
I'm just done writing about it. Scheming about it.
Being forlorn if things aren't working, yadda yadda -
I will always be drawn to those talents because they
aren't going anywhere - but gone are the days of
lamenting that shit. It is what it is as they say. But
goddamn am I well positioned to make Hats
& Minigolf a reality. Just need a few seconds
- Now, I can't
actually show any of my footage from the movie but
I can show the clips from their little behind the
scenes featurette on the blu-ray.
- AHHHHHH. Wait'll
you guys see it. AHHHHHH.
- Of course I'm
going to do the exact opposite of what I said
I would in the last entry - LMAO. Wax poetic
about the path that got me here:
- SO MANY PEOPLE THOUGHT I WAS NUTS.
Even moreso than usual for me. The golf course,
certainly the Time Machine... and suddenly all of this
is happening and - this absolutely feels like a
CBS moment. Well, this is the early CBS moment
that leads to the big one, etc. The Up & Adam
time... the magic of early 2007. Back in time. Wow how
perfect that's exactly what it feels like. Seeing
everything align perfectly in my career for the first
time since 2009. I know we had that blip in July, and
that could still work out, but I'm now securing my
future to the point that I shouldn't have to be
beholden to the distrubutor as it's clear this has
- So much
credibility without me having to talk it up. You know,
the part I FUCKING CAN'T DO. It's being
done for me. And honestly - this can't be taken away
from me! So even if Hats & Minigolf never
happens... this is in stone. This just is. Done. Wow.
I'm rambling like I used to back in the day.
- Ok, I have to
sleep. Craziest week of all-time coming up.
