I Just Want to Eat My Sandwich
went the whole month of January without a screening. This was the first month since its release in July that it did not have a festival.
Now is catch up time. This past Wednesday, Sandwich
screened at the Marblehead Winter Film Festival
. On Friday night, it played right before the feature presentation at the Magnolia Independent Film Festival
in Starkville, MS. Sandwich
also has several more screenings coming up in the next 3 weekends, at the Macon Film & Video Festival
in Macon, GA next week, the Lake County Film Festival
in Graysville, IL on the weekend of March 1st, and then, a week later, at the All American Film Festival
in Durham, NC.
I attended the Marblehead Winter Film Festival last Wednesday night, as it is in driving distance. (Though I didn't drive -- Dad did.) It was nice to see Mike Evers again, as well as the other festival folk. The audience was just as warm and supportive as they were last year, though, due to the weather, the number of people attending were significantly fewer.
Let me pause before continuing on to thank the people at the Marblehead Festival of the Arts
for selecting I Just Want to Eat My Sandwich
to be screened at your event. It's always a pleasure, and thank you, also, to those of you who attended!
I could not make it down to Mississippi this year for Magnolia and I can't attend any of the other festivals. I'm quite disappointed by this. I really wanted to check out Macon and get to see my cousins in North Carolina. But, the choice is attending the festivals or paying March and April's rent.
I'm so freakin' responsible...
OK, I'm in quite a funk this year so far as money has been very tight, that last Super Bowl, and my unreasonable (to say the least) former landlord threatened to sue me for "slender and defamation" (yup, that's right, "slender") for a truthful post I made on this blog 16 months ago. (I took it down since I didn't have the money or time to fight a suit that I would have won but it took a while for Google to get rid of the cached page, so he didn't leave us alone quickly enough.) And if that landlord is reading this -- your name isn't here -- you can't sue me for this! (Just get on with your life and be a better person, please.)
Also, this present Mercury in Retrograde has been tough. My mind has been more overwhelmed and frazzled than usual. Plus, I'm quite sick of my undiagnosed vision problem remaining undiagnosed.
This is the last day of Mercury retrograde -- which is the toughest. It will probably take a week for things to really pick up pace again. I'm just looking forward to some better times. And it at least is already starting with this crop of festivals screening Sandwich
. To those festivals, I thank whole-heartedly for considering my film to be of entertainment value to your community.
