Unless of course, my friends are all going to meet up at the Gates of Hades. Then I'd have to seriously reconsider.
There is a great scene (well okay, several great scenes) in Tim Burton's movie : Ed Wood. The one where Ed gets all of his wacky pals together for a Baptism in a swimming pool somewhere in Hollywood.
Well, although I'm not making a monster movie, super-natural thriller, or anything like that - I am following my artistic notions and trying to share my vision with others. That said, I just had a moment recently where (during a bizarre and uncomfortable scene) I looked around the room at my friends and couldn't help but think of that bit from the film. I felt just as blessed, and definitely sure that I have supportive, wonderful, people around me. Ones who will endure the ridiculous and go through most anything for me, and the artistic visions we share together.
Thanks guys.You know who you are. And I love you for it.
