This is the not-so-daily thoughts of an aspiring film maker as he makes his way through Hollywood.
What do sleeping giants dream of?
I for one imagine a fantastic world of silliness and gumdrops. Why? Because I think giants need a break from stress. Oh don’t think they’re not stressed, they have a lot to think of. I mean just waking up from a simple nap. You don’t know if you’re gonna roll over onto a goat or wake up tied to the ground. There’s a lot to worry about. I imagine giants are cautious beings. Every step they take could unbalance nature. They don’t worry about stepping on bugs. They worry about destroying entire civilizations. Yes there’s a lot of responsibility in a giant’s hand. So when they sleep, I imagine they sleep sound, and push all the little issues that surround them out of their mind, and fill it instead with happiness and equality. Silliness, and gumdrops.
I’ve heard, there is herb on this earth that people will use to relax a bit. And for whatever reason it can make things, absolutely and ridiculously hilarious. Say for instance if someone was to be under the influence of such herb while at Sonic. And say that person ordered a milk shake, only to drop it, almost immediately after ordering it. A child might cry over it, an adult might be disappointed. But for this particular scenario… it was absolutely ridiculously hilarious.

My friend Jose flew into LA with the goal to make a living here as a camera operator. There were some tough moments the first few weeks, so I took him to do some photography at the Hollywood Sign, but at night. It was my second time up there, but the beauty hadn’t change a bit. Jose’s doing great btw. If you’re looking for inspiration my suggestion to you is: take a bright flashlight, be careful (of animals and people), try not to be too noticeable (because it’s illegal to be there after sundown), and enjoy the beauty of LA from this vantage point. It will leave a lasting impression and desire for greatness.
