Another Segue

The throne of our ruler.
Quoting  Buzz:

Segueing from the last episode of Flaked to the video of Procol Harum’s  Whiter Shade of Pale. Seemed like it was the last song playing.

Listening to it on the Dog House studio monitors and watching it on the iMac17 27 inch 5k screen.

Then on to Red Dirt Girl sung by First Aid Kit. The song writer, Emmy Lou Harris was there at the 2015 Polar Music Prize ceremony to honor her.

Such is the life of one of the two Aphasic Dudes at the Dog House. I live here.

Dog House Control Room

Quoting Buzz:

I am in the process of updating the control room at Hibbard Studio. The key component is a new iMac. I bought it because of the need for speed in film production.

The faster control room design will soon achieve a better parity with my current level of creativity.

One goal is a better teleconference capability. The latest Call Recorder plug-in works well with Final Cut Pro to provide a seamless source for my interviews, most notably with Judy. You will likely see the results soon.

I have nicknamed our studio “Dog House”. Most of you know why.

Elevator Pitch

My elevator pitch:

I am producing a movie about transformation of my life after my aphasic stroke.
I can’t talk as well now - a blessing in disguise.
Writing better than ever, though.
Using tech to do it.

Collaboration with my sister - a quantum leap.

Studying 1984

Orwell’s book, 1984 - I didn’t just passably consume the content. I studied it. It has had great meaning to me, now that my brain is re-connecting - a silver lining to the injury I experienced in August 2013.

Because I have the Kindle and Audible edition and have watched the film, the elements as they relate to me, have high value. I can access them at will.

Had I read the book when I was younger, my active imagination would have made it very disturbing - without the intellectual stimulus.

Room 101

Quoting Buzz:

“I do not like torture in fiction, in film, as a concept etc. It was personally frightening to me. In the book, 1984 it was necessary for the story. Orwell told his story well.

“Room 101 for Buzz? I perceive it as different, post-stroke. Torture is still just as disgusting as before, but now I see it for what it is - what can go very wrong with human’s minds.

“Fearing the concept makes it stronger. A better emotion is accepting that it must to be changed and to use creative means to push eradication, wherever possible.

“One of the steps is filter propaganda - hard to do but worth the effort - incoming but especially outgoing.”
