- 12:30 AM, Friday,
February 9th, 2001:
- The Beatles played
Ed Sullivan for the first time on February 9th, 1964.
37 years later, The Trinitrons are born...
- Ok, that's it.
I can't hold it in any longer. I am
REALLY damn excited. I can't stop smiling.
I can't stop jumping up and down. I'm sick of
being all patient and reserved about my feelings here.
It's absolutely KILLING me to try and be quiet
about how big the past week has been for me. Again, I
feel like if I admit to thinking I'm on the verge
of an incredibly big break I'll look
ON THE VERGE OF AN INCREDIBLY BIG BREAK
- There's just no
other way around it. This really is it. I don't
believe I'm jinxing this or any of that BS. I am
getting my true feelings down as anyone would do in a
journal. I see it clearer than I have ever seen
anything. For once my "luck" relies on my talents, and
my creative juices are NOT letting me down. In fact
this "monumental" writing challenge is oozing out of
everything I do. Everything's writing itself.
Charlotte (my manager) has incredibly good ideas, and
is consistently blowing me away with her knowledge of
how to do this.
- The framework of
the one man show is completed, as well as all 5
characters written. I even know exactly what they're
gonna wear and look like. Their bitching back and
forth is writing easier than The Boyles used to. Did I
ever tell you guys that? The characters on The Boyles
were SO well developed that I ad-libbed the
episodes. Well that's how this feels. Everything's
clicking. And on top of that, Charlotte completely
one-upped me and thought of the name for the fictional
band in the one-man show: The Trinitrons. (That's a
brand of television by the way). It's perfect. The
premise is that these 5 guys have so much disdain for
each other they'll only perform in tvs, thus: The
Trinitrons. So of course, I immediately changed the
index page of 4tvs to include the band (sorry the
"Live Adamcam" is history), and bought the domain
in preperation. I'm BUZZIN. I can't sleep, hell I
can't eat because I want to think about
- Here's what my
head is like right now. It's as if it's 2002 and "The
Trinitrons" is already completed. I am in the audience
watching the entire show. I have it ALL on tape in my
mind as a member of the audience, but I can only
see it when I REALLY concentrate. Once I am, it
all comes into focus. The jokes, the set-up,
everything just play for me. So of course laying in
bed is THE SHIT, because I can see everything so
clear. Unfortunately the point of a bed is sleeping
(one of the points anyway) and this is just killing
that aspect of life for me. BUT WHO CARES.
LOL. I'm on one of the best creative rolls of my life.
I cannot fucking WAIT to create this show. If it
turns out the way my head sees it right now, it will
absolutely blow people away. If you thought 4tvs had
good timing, just wait.
- The pisser in all
of this is that it's so complicated and so EXACTING
time wise, that I have to write out the most detailed
script imaginable for every second of this one hour
show. Once that's refined, and edited, I then
have to make a dummy track for everyone to follow,
shoot the 4tvs, and then try and sync them all
together. I gave myself APRIL as a deadline. That may
be cutting it a bit close, but if I don't make
one, I'll procrastinate. Yeah right, at this rate -
it'll be done by next month.
- Anyway, the only
real reason for this entry is to tell everyone that
this is FREAKIN' HUGE. I've never said that about
anything. Especially not 4tvs related. And I don't
mean huge in a "we're gonna be able to pay our bills"
sort of way...I mean this is the crossroad in which we
all look back to in a couple of years. Now, without
Hollywood Screentest, I would never have been
able to afford to stay out here and even get this
opportunity, so they get the nod for savin' my butt.
OH MY GOD. I just remembered seriously
considering selling the 4tvs equipment and trailer to
stay out here. Wow. Life just turns on a dime
sometimes...doesn't it? I mean, no shittin',
I was THIS CLOSE to doing it...but
I made that call to Eric Moro and got Movie
Minded and video editing work out of it. Incredible.
I'm not sure what lessons can be made out of all this.
It seems like I'm in the Twilight Zone right now
honestly. Man, I am....
