- It's hard to
believe this, but it really is true. This is the first
time I've ever spoken about The Journey in an
interview... and it's a complete story. You can tell
just by my excitement and literal pride about the
project: it feels worth talking about
- ...of course by
complete, it doesn't mean over... I'm over 3 years
into the next volume, but these 2 volumes complete an
arc. It works. Finally. And Meachem is a good cat to
talk about that with...
- ...it's also the
first time that I know the reviewer "gets it". Before
the docs, I knew no one could really know what I was
talking about - it's thousands of entries, you know?
Fuckouttahere. But these two movies? Oh yeah... it's
all there. It's sped through, but it's there. So now
I actually can't WAIT to talk about it. Oh and we
mentioned Rusty, but I just have to talk about that
- So yeah, Rusty
wanted to watch The Journey and it was kinda late, but
the kids wanted to watch them too. All 3 hours. It was
a Friday night so we figured why not. I ended up
sitting behind Rusty as he sat on the couch WITH my
family and it was this truly surreal feeling.
I wrote about it on Facebook...
- "After watching
volume 1 and 2 back to back with Rusty Locke last
you cant convince me that my life
isnt presently in an alternate reality.
- The difference
between the two 10-year periods is so startling it
feels fake. As if in 2010 I just made some shit up. I
know I joke that my motto is refusing to let bad shit
happen to me (turning every negative into the starting
point of a future positive), but when you watch it all
back to back? It 100% feels fake. Like complete
absolutely floored by this and never truly appreciated
it until last night watching it with someone who knew
very little about the story. So I sub-consciously just
sat in his head and imagined what he must be
- What a wild way
to experience 20 years."
- A complete
out-of-body experience for me on a couple levels for
sure. Sometimes it's tough to be an empath... often
its wonderful. Every experience feels new when you can
so easily sit behind someone else's eyes.
- Good shit. Enjoy
