This past week I took five days off from writing since recovery is always an important part of any aspect of life (though I admit it does not come easy to me), but on Saturday and Sunday, I heard my script a calling again. Thus the third draft has begun. This draft is more of a touch up and review of significant changes I made in the second draft, double checking that things are lining up, and making any last necessary changes/fixes before peer reviews. But for this past week I completed 18 pages which has resulted in 18 pages being done for the third draft of my Untitled Feature Film Script.
On another accountability level, I had some fall back the past couples week on another goal but I cannot dwell on the past, I must move forward and follow the tools and action plans I have developed this year. —
Yesterday, I was lucky enough to see Animal Collective at The Observatory in Santa Ana. While it was a little bit of a drive, they put on an amazing show that was well worth it because their live drummer brought the grooves of the german art rock band Can across their electronic psych pop landscapes as Avey Tare and Panda Bear’s voices bounced back in forth in beautiful asymmetrical harmony. They played mostly songs off their great 2016 album Painting With and their latest EPs, but for their last song, they played Summertime Clothes off Merriweather, which is the song I recorded above. I apologize for the shaking of the camera but I did my best since their was a crazy mosh pit happening right next to me and as you can see some crowd surfing going on. Thus in short, it was a great night. If you're interested, there is a longer video with the intro of this song and a longer write up on the show at my Facebook page. #animalcollective#summertimeclothes#merriweatherpostpavilion#observatory#santaana#concerts#music#crowdsurfing#pitchfork#writing#screenwriting#script#cinema#directing#producing#accountability#beyondmotivated#18pgs#thirddraft#35#POLO#DAY161
