  • Nov 13 2011: writing screenplays that try to raise awareness of humans to the startling loss of our world's cultures; reading post-modernist thinkers; reading social science; cooking wonderful foods and listening to music.

      Nov 14 2011: Your hobbies bend towards social topics. Is writing screenplays a cheap hobby?
      • Nov 14 2011: in terms of resources it is inexpensive. It is expensive emotionally in trying to find ways of allowing the marvel of film to open eyes and not just pockets. It is also expensive in terms of the time needed to create real work, but it has always been so if one tries to contribute to society instead of feeding off of it. I am urged to look at trends and what is "selling" by those in the industry, though the majority of films are simply crap- and I am told that also has always been the case. The belief in self and the cost of idealism in this world is the highest cost involved in the process.
