Preparing to Travel

Where do I start? I have been really inconsistent about this blog lately. I am at a point where I am a bit overwhelmed.



Lots happening. I got more contacts, new discoveries and lots more controversy. I will be going away weekend, not saying where. Can't say much about what I am doing yet. Not until I do it. I hesitate to reveal too much before I have made my connections. Don't want to get out on front street on stuff until I verify at least that the person is a verifiable source.



Been doing lots of thinking about the structure of the film, playing around with footage, trying to get it into shape for an editor. I am engaging the services of a writer to help me with the narrative.



Been having strange dreams about hiphop fascists, Gangsterism and it's failure to accept resistance to it as a culture. The confrontations are resolved by timing, not conflict. Lots of momentary disarming in the middle of a sentence. No guns, the taking of swords. backward runs from the tip of a knife. Once I do this weeked I will say more about what is going on.



The film is getting done inspite of my lack of money. It just keeps happening. This is a good thing. Got more ground to cover. More destinations to arrive at.



Searching for Dante from a markerless plot in a cemetary in River Grove, IL. It is 4:45 am and I am wondering how I got involved in this again.



The end is in sight? I wonder.
