A glooming peace this morning with it brings;
The sun, for sorrow, will not show his head:
Go hence, to have more talk of these sad things;
Some shall be pardon'd, and some punished:
For never was a story of more woe
Than this of Sega and her Mashiro.

Does your new home have beautiful wood-paneled walls, like your old one, or have you downgraded to a place with painted plaster?

I don't have a new place yet, as I'm staying with friends temporarily. Hopefully when I do find a place I will be once again luxuriantly bombarded with wood paneling. (My last place felt like a log cabin since it wasn't wood paneled, it was all real wood.)

Dude, props on the move.  Portland rocks.  I grew up down in Hood River, and lived in Beaverton for a few years.  I love it up there.  I recently moved down to LA to pursue film, but if there was any sort of film business going on up there you know that's where I'd be.  If you need suggestions or recommendations of places to stay hit me up man.  My bro is starting at PLU in a few weeks as well, so that's cool.  Also congrats on the writing gig.

Pacific Luthern University? I dropped out of that college after my first year. Hated it!

Portland has a pretty impressive array of film talent, obviously Gus Van Sant and Todd Haynes; movies are made here all the time, though not as much as LA; there are tons of independent theatres (that serve beer and pizza) that show excellent movies; Portland State University has its own movie theatre run by students, and they show awesome movies too.

I actually moved here FOR movies, as well as everything else.

There's only one independent theater near me, and it's about 45 minutes away...however, it's the greatest theater in the world, and it serves more than just pizza and alcohol..

I'll give you that.  Portland does have a lot of film talent, I'll give you that.  What I've seen Portland lacks though is the infrastructure.  There are plenty of post houses all over the place, sure.  What I had issue with in Portland was the limited selection of locations of which to get gear from.  There is essentially one.  Also, Oregon's film office isn't very helpful or informative.  Now, it's perfectly possible to get around these issues, but it wasn't for me.  I'm more of the filmmaker, and less of the producer.  I didn't have any producing friends, and that made everything more difficult for me.  Props on the move though, I've made plenty of fun films around those parts.  And it certainly is beautiful around there.

The variety of locations is certainly one thing I am missing down here though.  All within an hour or two from Portland are deserts, beaches, snow scapes, forests, fields, and underground caverns.  Me?  Well, I've got palm trees.


And whoops, my bad.  I didn't mean PLU (although I do have friends who attend) I meant PSU.  I'll have him send me some of the articles you've written.

I'm bumping this not to make a big deal out of recent events, but just to let you know since I made a big deal out of leaving in the first place: I didn't stay in Portland longer than a month - it didn't work out, and moved back about a week and a half ago. No biggie, I'm home. I'm trying to minimize. Portland's beautiful, you should visit. I'll be back soon I'm sure.

The main culprit? Money. Life is expensive, and unexpected.

Sorry to hear that, Svevan. Keep your spirits up... I've moved to a new city before (cross country, where I knew no one)... if there are two things that moving successfully takes, they are:

1) Lots of determination, and
2) A good deal of luck.

At least, that's the recipe as I saw it. So (and please excuse the cliché), don't give up. If you want it badly enough, you'll get back there.
