The premise of minimum wage, when it was introduced, was that a single wage earner should be able to own a home and support a family.  That was what it was based on; a full time job, any job, should be able to accomplish this.

The fact people scoff at this idea if presented nowadays, as though the people that ring up your groceries or hand you your burgers don’t deserve the luxury of a home and a family, is disgusting.

A lot of privileged people like to argue that they “worked hard” to get what they have. I’m sure that’s true in a lot of cases. I’ll just speak for myself when I say, I know that whatever job I get after college, I will not be working harder than someone who is on their feet all night at the 24/7 diner. Usually people aren’t poor because they “didn’t work hard” and it’s so complicated how the system is so fucked that it’s just easier for people to explain it to themselves by writing others off as not having worked hard enough. Really frustrating.

I actually thought this movie was awesome. I’m not gonna be pretentious and pretend I understood it all, but I appreciated the intention and I enjoyed the mood it created and all.

"I teach fourth grade in Harlem.""What’s your greatest struggle as a teacher?""I worry a lot about the kids.""Why’s that?""Not all the kids. Just the ones that aren’t on the ‘college track.’ Many of them just don’t have a culture of expectation at home, and it’s hard work to lift yourself out of an underprivileged situation. I actually just finished going to a trombone recital for a former student of mine. I used to coach him in hockey on weekends. He’d practice with me from 4 AM to 6 AM. Then he’d go practice trombone from 8 to 10. He did all this just so he could get into a good high school. That’s what it takes, really. Hard to do without a culture of expectation."
Water does not resist. Water flows. When you plunge your hand into it, all you feel is a caress. Water is not a solid wall, it will not stop you. But water always goes where it wants to go, and nothing in the end can stand against it. Water is patient. Dripping water wears away a stone. Remember that, my child. Remember you are half water. If you can’t go through an obstacle, go around it. Water does.

We’ve only researched/discovered less than 2% of the words oceans and looking for the missing plane covers maybe another 1% if not less. There are trenches over 7 miles deep after reaching the first 5 miles down. It’s just crazy to think about, like what if the cure to cancer was in the ooze…

You will be shocked, kids, when you discover how easy it is in life to part ways with people forever.

That’s why, when you find someone you want to keep around, you do something about it.

This is the best pic ive seen in a long time.

"I am writing you because I am filming a movie in Calvert County this summer and I wanted to get CalCo people interested in it. This is my NYU thesis film and I will be spending approx $15,000 on it, so I need all the help within the county as I can get! Watch this promo below and see if you are interested:


The film is about culture in CalCo- rednecks, non-rednecks, beach culture, farm culture, existential crisis, and everything in between. We are casting actors alongside non actors (CalCo natives) to make the film a uniquely authentic CalCo film.

Here is how you can help me:

1. Any leads on housing. I need to house my crew (about 15 people from NYC) for a few days. I have money in the budget for this, and I think it will be more fun for my crew to rent a house than to stay at the Holiday Inn. The problem is, it is hard to find a house to rent in CC. Basically, after wrap each night we will PROBABLY be drinking, so we need a place that can sleep 15 people on beds and air mattresses and also somewhat private so we won’t be disrupting a family or anything. I was looking into Neeld Esates/beach cottages down there? Any thoughts? Anyones family on vacation for a week this summer and looking to make a lil money??

2. Cars. Anyone bored and wanna hang out with a crew of fun people making a movie? You can drive us around?

3. Meals. Want to make a meal for fifteen people and come hang out on set?

4. Money- I doubt anyone has any money (I sure don’t), but if you want to see a cool movie made about Calvert County and you know someone who may like to donate, that would be COOL!!!

If you want to come hang onset, or be involved in any capacity, I would like to talk to you. I will be reaching out to individuals as well, but this is a mass blast to see if anyone has interest or feedback. If you grew up in CC, this is a movie about YOU.



If anyone has any questions please message me. If anyone works at a restaurant with a cool boss that could cater with a discount or for free and a mention in the credits, please message me. If anyone has a crazy church mom with crazy church friends that like to bake together, please message me. If anyone has a summer home and wants to make some extra money or be extremely generous/gracious, please message me. If you’re one of those people whose family has a billion cars or a big truck you don’t use, and could lend/rent out, please message me. If you’re looking for something to get into for a week or two this summer, being on a film set is so fucking fun. All of the people involved are a party and my sister is humble but these people are professionals in the film industry. They’re really young and already involved in big budget projects, with high profile people, actual legit film companies. This is a side project with some people who are actually the real deal working with the real deal people in the industry. Not boasting, just worth noting for credibility. It’s going to be epic, and anyone cool enough to help deserves to be a part of it. Such an experience. So yeah, message me.
