I just felt the need to post this really quick thought:

"They stand around admiring his carpetbag"

I was walking out of my dorm this morning and for some reason, there was a group of people standing around this guy who had a large purse-like bag which looked like it had been made out of an oriental rug. And all I could think was the above.

It made me smile.

I just saw a cop driving down the road, and he was purposly crawling and then speeding up and stopping suddenly on a narrow road, and no one could pass him. He wasn't looking at anything because no one was there. He was just enjoying the power trip, watching all of the slaves (er, citizens) of America bow down to his authority by blocking traffic.


Maybe I'm mistaken, and I hope so, but it wouldn't suprise me at all. Anyway, I have class in about an hour, and I've got to go to the post office and get lunch. Things are going well, the editing team for Women In Motion is editing the assembly edit of the film today. (That should be cool.)

More later!

British Literature, and other woes.

Help me! What have I gotten myself into!

I should have taken my lit course last year, because it is super labor intensive, reading A LOT and writing a whole lot of papers. Argh. I still haven't met my professor, either, because I missed my first class (due to my airline going bankrupt and ceasing operations) and I got a really cheap ticket on Tuesday and missed the class. Today, when we had the class for the second time (and I did not have a syllabus so I hadn't done the reading or the response) of Thomas More's Utopia. The professor wasn't there! So we had this sub with a british accent, who was obviously incredibly intelligent, but had a really soft voice and stopped every three words or so, and made him a torture to listen to, because he told all these stories and facts and you had no idea what to write down!

It was aweful.

I also ordered my RAM last night and (I think) successfully burned a DVD master of my senior play "Bye Bye Birdie" we'll see though.

I learned to transfer 1/4inch nargra tape into avid so that we can soon be working on syncing the sound with the video clips and begin editing the women in motion film! It's really funny, it's a documentary style film about traffic cones, as if they were living creatures.

Hopefully all is well with everybody. This should be a good semester, but we'll see!

Back In Boston

I wanted to call this post "Back In Beantown" but a friend of mine told me that no one who lives in or around Boston actually calls it Beantown. "But," I responded, "I am not from Boston!"

Anyway, I'm settled in for the most part, and I can already feel the weight coming down on my shoulders. I slept like a BABY last night, and slept all through my roommates alarm clock. I guess I'm having trouble adjusting to the way things work around here. Hopefully it won't last and I'll be back in the groove in no time.

Oh, by the way, if there is anything I hate, it's people who are to spineless to attack your character to your face. They must hid behind anonymity to say what they really feel.

Well I am Ezra Horne, and I could not care less what you think about me and my beliefs, "Bro Jake Larabee".

Now that that is out of the way, I'll say adeiu, and get some grub.

The Lies And Misrepresentations By Those Who Wish To Destroy Us

My sister's history textbook gives a brief history of the Church of Jesus Christ Of Latter Day Saints, however, the "history" speaks in generalizations, and calls the church "The Church of Latter Day Saints"

Convienent that they leave out the words "Jesus Christ"--this intentional misprepresatation futher propells the IGNORANCE of people about Mormons/Latter Day Saints. We believe in the teachings of JESUS CHRIST. WE ARE CHRISTIANS BY DEFINITION. But most people don't know this despite the fact that it is right in our name!

You can argue to me that it wasn't on purpose, but I know it was. When writing a history text, you put the full, real name of the event or organization. When writing a history of the Boys Scouts of America, you don't call them the "Scouts of America" because not only is it wrong, but it OCCLUDES IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT THE ORGANIZATION.

Arrgh. I hate textbooks with a passion. One of her other textbooks actually has a footnote under the 2nd amendment which says (INCORRECTLY) that "militia" means the military, and that the quote "'right' to bear arms is a limited one" BULLCRAP. It makes me so mad.


I go back to Boston on Tuesday, and I'm nervous but excited to return to school. A longer post may come later this week.

Hello, I've Got Moxie

Whatever I do in life, it will be better than some lame foodservice or retail job, even if it isn't my dream job (whatever that may be) so I should stop worrying, because I've got the Moxie to make it happen.

I wish I could believe that in my heart the way that I know it in my head.

I've made a decision.

I'm not going to live by "The Rules". I'm done letting other people deceide the things that I should or should not do. I've made a list, adapting "The Rules" of my friend Jon. I like them, and I will try to make a better effort to live by them.

5. Believe In Yourself
6. Give The People What They Want--As Long As You Maintain Your Integrety
7. Take Nothing And No One For Granted
8. Hope For The Best, Plan For The Worst
9. Do Unto Others, As You Would Have Done To You
10. Enjoy Life
11. Don't Be Too Proud To Ask For Help
12. Do Your Best

I feel good. I'm tired, and I'm worried about life, but it feels good to have what I've known in my head to be true all along down on paper.

Goodnight, God Bless.

Kickin' Screamin' All The Way, (and other such things)

I’m kickin’ screamin’ all the way. The lyrics to the Shapiro song adequately describe my current situation. I got the 1987 Toyota Truck’s fuel pump replaced. It’s the third time in one year. Awesome. It also was inspected and fortunately it passed. The whole ordeal cost 194 dollars and change. It frustrates me so. Let me recap. Last January the fuel pump was leaking and so I had it replaced so that it would pass inspection. Then this summer, while I was driving out of Portland headed south to visit a friend, it just died. So now I am mega annoyed because I had to shell out another 200 dollars for a THIRD PUMP. Fortunately my mother and grandmother are generous and understanding and footed the bill this time. This means that I can actually use the money that my Grandma gave me for Christmas to buy something for myself.

I was thinking about getting a gig of ram for my computer, or maybe trying for a flat-screen monitor. But since I have a crappy video card, I’ll probably go with the ram, since I currently only have 512MB.

Back to the pickup for a minute. Something else is wrong now! I was driving it and it hesitates and chokes when accelerating and often dies when slowing down or idling. Or it just chokes and wheezes. I think that they got me a sub-par fuel pump that is not providing adequate pressure for the gas, and therefore failing. I’m dreading the fact that I have to call Midas and tell them this and in a way I hope its something that they did so that they will fix it.

Okay, on to a topic that is less technological and boring and frustrating. My dad is working on a pilot to a show, and I have been trying to brainstorm and help with ideas, but I haven’t really been putting the time into it that I should. I’m really hoping that this takes of because if it does, then I might be able to go out to Utah this summer and help him shoot the other episodes (this is of course assuming that someone finances the show).

I’m going to be in Harrisonburg until the 14th-17th (I don’t know exactly when it will be because my airline went bankrupt on the second. Which is another awesome slap in the face since I will not be able to get any money back on the 70-dollar ticket. AWESOME.

Since I will be in Harrisonburg, I would like to visit with people, but as I have a deathly fear of my truck now (because I think it still has something else wrong with it) I don’t know how I am supposed to do that.  Let me know if you wanna hang out.

What else is new? I feel like making a really long update since I have not done so in quite some time.

Also, I’m working on writing a pilot for a sitcom that I will be working on with Adam Ginivisian, comedic extraordinaire.

I guess that should do it for this post. I really need an alphasmart like the older “Alphasmart Pro” that I am using now that I got for my sister some time ago. I like it because for some reason I prefer to write on it, sitting on a comfortable couch, then say, sitting at a computer. The other reason I like using an Alphasmart to type is that there are no distractions. No doodling in a notebook, no surfing the internet like on a laptop. Just typing. That’s all you can o, and that’s why it rules.

Goodnight Cleveland!
