1689 Zap & Troy.


Thomas is referencing my particular favorite episode of Mystery Science Theater 3000; The Final Sacrifice. The gentleman who played Zap Rowsdower in said film said in an interview I once saw that he thought the reason for his newfound notoriety was odd, but he enjoyed it and the fans seemed to genuinely love the movie and it’s insanity. It’s an episode from the end of Mike Nelson’s run as the test subject and well worth the time you spend finding it. It’s on DVD and I think it might be on the Netflix season.
When I was young I didn’t want to show people anything if I didn’t think it was going to be “perfect”. So I didn’t do much of anything. Jo has said similar things to John and she is very wise in some ways because she realizes that trying is much more important than people give it credit for. In many ways she is the best person to be a director because she isn’t worried about possibly making something terrible. Being shy is a weakness, but George Lucas could barely make eye contact with people when he started and look what he did… just look at it Anakin…

Some of you might have noticed that the blogs have been much shorter than in previous times. Well, I’ve been avoiding talking about what’s been going on with me for a number of reasons. I do pop in to the discord server from time to time to vent, but I dunno, I just haven’t felt like reliving things via text. If you feel like joining the chat the link is right in front of you. It’s active almost all day long.

Anyway, I’m tired and I want to rest. I hope you guys have a good weekend.
