A Story Ends

Coney Island ends for the summer as my story with my long-time good friend ends.  Losing a close friend closes an important chapter in your life. But only you can keep it alive by never forgetting it.

Final Bow

You may have given your final bow and made your exit through the stage door but your presence will always be everywhere.

The hardest part is that final goodbye. Losing a close friend whom you knew for years and kept a long working relationship and great friendship is hugely difficult. A void is left and that’s when you wonder how you will go on living with that void in your life. Though, you slowly fill it with life – that person will always remain.

Goodbye, Hesh

It’s not easy losing a friend who you spoke to every day for many years. It becomes a void that will be very difficult to get used to. I lost my best friend….a mentor, an artist, an entertainer. I met Hesh years ago and we formed a puppet troupe then went on to work on a few short films.

You will be missed, Hesh, but never forgotten.

Originality .2 All Too Familiar


I don’t know. It seems our culture has been lacking Originality. Don’t you think? It’s almost like nobody can come up with new ideas on their own anymore. And when they don’t then they sort of copy others. Huh. And like has Hollywood run out of ideas? Why do they keep rehashing old franchises, and sequels and prequels, and adaptations, parodies, reboots and spin-offs? Can we just dump the old way of thinking? [Flings garbage over] And yes, I know, even YouTube videos on this very topic of Originality are everything but that. But I digress.

And I wouldn’t be surprised if there’s another Superman remake in the works. If you’re going to do another Superman give it a twist; make him turn sinister — he’s sick and tired of saving humanity. It worked in the comics. Starring a Superman gone awol. Worked with Breaking Bad. Anyway, I’m losing track of all this rehashing of the rehashes. Well, Harry Potter is a new franchise. They’ll milk that one for years to come. Looks like TV has more originality these days. Oh, wait there’s the Doctor Who dust-off from the 60’s. Well that’s been rehashing and offspringing ever since. But for the most part I would say TV is chiming in on the originality bell.

I strive to be original — don’t we all? But at times it’s quite a difficult task with all the influence around us. Sometimes it’s subconscious. NO?
