Academy Award Nomination Certificate

Academy Award Nomination Certificate.  Yup.  There it is.

Ok, many people think I’m yanking their chain on this Academy Award Nomination thing. I did get one, that’s a fact. Back in 1975. For the 16mm film Dancy Street, which I co-produced, directed, and edited with Cary White. That’s my finger pointing on the certificate on my wall.

It did not, however, result in me becoming a big shot Hollywood director.

These days, its more of a detriment than an attribute when looking for a job. People seem to just assume I’m an obnoxious old hack living on residuals, who should just get out of the way and stop showing off. I wish I was that smart.

Actually, I’m not that way at all. I’m just another frustrated artist, living in Stanken Rose, Texas, who’s trying to figure out how to squeeze a dime out of a business where all the money, by design, streams right past all those who actually create anything, and into the pockets of the rich guys that create nothing, but are fortunate enough to own stock in Apple, Google, Spotify, blah, blah, blah.
That’s what they really mean by the term “streaming media.” The money streams right past you, and you, Mr. Artist, get to work your ass off for FREE!
Don’t get me started….

Any questions?
