A Busy Weekend
I'm going out tonight to panhandle as a zombie in honor of the Trash Film Orgy. Then I'll try spare changinig the kids that go in to the see the show. This is particularly hillarious, to me anyway, because I started this film festival five years ago. I quit after the first three years and let my co-founders have it. But it's a place where I get to play cool kid, and I've often heard kid's in line whisper to each other, "That's the dude that started this." Now I'll be begging them for their change. I think I'll tell them that I need money so I can buy a ticket to get in. On Sunday I'll be doing the freeway offramp with the signs that you all suggested (see last post). Thanks for so many great suggestions. And Tuesday I will swallow my pride and do my first non-costumed, non-funny cardboard signing. I need to see how much I make with the gimmicks and costumes AND without so I can compare. It's market research. This is way easier to do with the costumes and I'm pretty nervous about putting myself out there as "A REAL LIFE BEGGAR!" Oh well, this should do wonders in the ego smashing department. Hmmm, the zen of begging on freeway offramps. Could a book be in the works?
I'll have new pictures up on Monday. In the meanwhile, I could really use some green tea from Pete's Coffee. Can you maybe donate a couple of bucks? I'd really appreciate it.
