In the annual National Film Challenge, or 48 Hour Film Festival, your team gets an email at 7:00 Friday evening assigning a genre, a character, a prop, and a line of dialogue.

By Monday night’s last Fedex dropoff, you write, cast, shoot, edit, and finish a 5 to 8 minute movie.

We got Science Fiction, Chris Wiffle the DJ, a boat, and “Where on Earth is your faith?”

My Dad moved into a two-bedroom Victorian apartment in San Francisco in 1978. When this was made, in 2004, his rent was just over 500 dollars.

25 years in, the apartment is full of his “collections.” Quilts, slide viewers, egg baskets shaped like chickens, postcards of the San Francisco Ferry Building, whiskey pour spouts, camping lanterns, yardsticks…all artistically, but meticulously, placed--and catalogued in his Palm Pilot, so he doesn’t buy the same thing twice.

Dad’s a photographer, gourmet cook, auto mechanic, handyman, wine expert, Eagle Scout, fluent French speaker…they don’t make guys like him much anymore. Maybe that’s why when he sees stuff they don’t make much anymore, he buys it.

As long as it’s under 50 bucks.

Contractors are their own class of human being, unbound by the the social contract. They’ll either do what they say they will, or they won’t. No consequences either way. And what are you gonna do, complain? Make them mad?

Mike from LA Pools turned my back yard into a muddy trenchtown for the better part of a year. He made me madder than anyone has in my life, which of course now is hilarious.

My Dad recently moved to Oregon. It was hellish. Two of the biggest trucks UHaul makes were barely enough to contain his vast wood, brass, glass and dust collections.

The thing was, he didn’t have any furniture. No couch. Just antiques. Printing presses, radios, a metal newspaper dispenser…a week of hard labor.
