A viking ship appears on the horizon, a likeness of Loretta Lynn carved into its bow. Rare birds flock together to sing Francoise Hardy as soul hits. A sunset of blips and bleeps fills the air.

@glenn:I never discount the power of human "What If" thinking, to wit: the Yanomomi people of the Brazilian rain-forest who, I suppose, though trial and error, found a tree whose inside bark, scraped and dried and powdered, and thence blown into someone else's nostril via a long bamboo tube, would induce otherworldly shamanic visions. And significant volcanic vomiting. But still, what are the odds?

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/28/17 9:39am bobdoesthings:

@jake- meh.. she was hugely helpful at first.. but after awhile I was just going desperately trying to think of things to talk about while she gave a gentle smile, yawned, and recommended mindfulness meditation.. then she gave me lip for being 10 mins late one day and I cancelled my sessions.

Yawning while allegedly listening doesn't sound very mindful.

Glenn, those 'saw stop' saws start around $1,200, not cheap by any means but only a little more than an actual useful tablesaw. how often are you planning on using it? their might be a shop in your area that after taking a safety course and signing like a million waivers you might be able to rent time in the shop.

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/28/17 9:52am bobdoesthings:

One thing that i found to be useful is www.selfauthoring.com -- but if you don't want to pay you can just do some similiar writing exercises..
Essentially you divide your life into "epochs" and write out positive and negative experiences you went through and write out the narrative of your life as you remember and lived it.. then you do a similar writing exercise for where you are currently at and then a similar exercise for how you'd like to "Design your future" .. sorta self-helpy.. but I find doing some writing/journaling helps put things into perspective, causes you to reflect deeper on your emotional/psychological responses and greater evaluate where you're at and who you are. There's something to be said about writing and coming to conclusions about your own personal narrative - makes it easier to let things go and be a bit more present with yourself... FWIW..
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/28/17 9:53am Trouble:

dj iceback "wrote" a weekly newspaper when he was young and we sent it out to friends and family. everyone loved it, and it improved his "writing" skills. (he dictated it to me and i sent it out via email) that would be a great project for the two kids to do @steveo

@? if you are uncomfortable with the idea of people actually touching you, there are places online where you can sell your used socks. similar idea, but nobody touches you.
  Thu. 9/28/17 10:30am JakeGould:

@?: There are far more people out there who have engaged in some level of “adult entertainment” than not. Meaning as long as you feel comfortable, get paid well and the relationship is kept secret, then why not?

That said, if you are doing something like that to survive and cannot live without it, you are already in a desperate situation and might be delaying the inevitable. Better face your financial situation head on rather than potentially destroying yourself for short-term gains.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/28/17 10:34am JakeGould:

@kareneliot: Exactly! There are options out there to crowdfund online. I would recommend you figure out how to make that work for you.

Also, gonna be blunt: Why a “movie” in 2017? How many silly vanity “movies” are out there that could just as easilly been shot on an iPhone, edited in iMovie and then shared on Vimeo, YouTube, etc…

It’s honestly better to start small, test your idea and then expand it into something bigger. Especially nowadays when “movies” versus “video” versus “TV” means crap. Create a short film that is the proof of concept and then use that as the basis of a crowdfunding campaign for a bigger better thing.

Always remember: Nobody in the film industry spends their own money. So you shouldn’t do that either unless there is utterly no choice.

@Jake: What I am trying to make is actually a proof of concept film, and I have half of it done and need to finish it. What I need to pay for is lighting, space rental, and food for the cast and crew. I should have started smaller but I didn't and that's why I'm in this situation. Now I know.

Oh, and echoing what Trouble said about college education and debt nowadays. 1 million times yes! And here’s an article from the Guardian today that touches on the horrific reality of debt and higher ed nowadays: “Facing poverty, academics turn to sex work and sleeping in cars” Who knew higher ed would be so bleak?

  Thu. 9/28/17 11:12am Listener Gregory:

Some adjuncts stay in that position permanently because they have other jobs, and they teach only one course a year or so. E.g., human resources director who teaches one class in a business school.
