#Gonzo is in my top 10 list for inspirational celebrities. Ironically, there is a sense of realness that I see in him that I don't see in many other celebrities. The dude can maintain a sense of optimism no matter what sort of adversity he is faced with. He reminds me of Sisyphus.. except instead of crawling up the mountain he is more of a problem solver by “unclogging” things by plunging the shit that manifests its way into his existence. He is not afraid to get his hands dirty and no job is beneath him. His technique is far from opulent or glamorous but it is visceral, humble and effective and can be implemented by anyone irrespective of class or social status. His stuntman background helps him to maintain a fearless tenacity when faced with adversity. I find he has a very endearing quality within the way he copes with not really fitting in. He is not a human, yet he is not an animal either. He just “is” and that's OK. Very Zen. I think we can all learn something from him. Especially the fact that his love has no boundaries. His view on miscegenation is reflected by his open relationship with Camilla the chicken.
Trying to relax my over-thinking mind by doing some doodling... seeking mindfulness.. a moment of zen.... letting the pencil ebb and flow in syncronicity with my subconscious mind... then it occurred to me... I had just I envolked my spirit animal.
George & Frank [ Photos taken 29-11-2013 ] I met George back in the '90's when we studied music composition together and he later introduced me to quarter tones and odd time signatures by getting me some gigs in the Greek reception band scene. 😆 From his web site.... George Papanicolaou has a passion for storytelling through music. His work on films identifies him as a composer who can cross musical genres and blend orchestral, acoustic and electronic music to produce scores that reflect contemporary film narratives. He has composed music for feature films, documentaries, short films, TV commercials and public events. George is keen to support young composers and is in demand as an educator and mentor. He regularly conducts workshops and master classes in music technology, film scoring, game audio, sound design and contemporary composition. He has developed courses for tertiary institutions including the Victorian College of the Arts (VCA), Melbourne University, AFTRS and Box Hill Institute.
I'm trying my best to keep busy as it seems like that's what all the popular people are doing. Anyway, I grabbed inspiration from all the celebrity chefs out there because we all know there just isn't enough cook books filing the bargain bins at our local bookshops. Here's a concept for a new character and song entitled Gruesome Soup... Grind the bones and boil the blood. Got to beat the rising sun. 'cause there's work to do to get the flavours right. Time is short and so is the night! Full recipe coming soon....

A quote by Ethan Hawke on the Yawp scene with Robin Williams 😟 I think the sadness with Robin is this person that brought the world so much joy, and to have it be revealed that we didn't do the same for him. When we're young, it's easier to find mentors and teachers and Dead Poets Society is about that. It's about young people with a great mentor who's telling them to hear their own voice: What will your verse be? Something happened to me with Robin. It's the scene where he writes on the chalkboard, I sound my barbaric yawp over the rooftops of the world, which is a Walt Whitman quote. And he wants me to sound my barbaric yawp. It's a very difficult scene to play and the director wanted to do it in one take. He wanted it to have an authenticity and it was one of the most wonderful experiences of my life. And when it was over, Robin just held my hand, and whispered, Remember this. Very, very beautiful moment for me, you know? And I've hunted, sought that moment out again, all the time.
Tonight's movie chosen by Renfield... because Sometimes a dead pet is better Muhaha 😈😆
Halloween is coming!!!!! Is anyone else as excited as we are? Actually, everyday is Halloween for us but it's nice for our behavior to be socially accepted for at least one day of the year 💀👻😆
