The summer has reached its midway point and as you lay out game plans you begin to understand that you can’t always get what you want. June had its ups and downs since that last entry with Donald Glaude ending up being a flake and constant roadblocks to go through to keep the documentary on track for wrap up at the end of this year. Time goes by so fast and sometimes I feel I can’t keep these goals in tact. This is life; this is reality; I’m dealing with it… as we all do.
I’ve decided to take a break from the interviewing until September while I focus this month on the editing of the gathered material thus far. My editor and I were going through tapes to put out a new trailer and its funny how you can see a significant chapter of your life with this gathered footage. I’ve been working on this project for over two years now and by the time were done it will be at the three year mark with potential for many more years to come with the TV show. I have a deep love for this music and scene but the drain sometimes gets to me. Passion can be chaos but I believe it’s for a greater good. I plan on delivering to the public something that means a lot to me and I hope it will mean something to the participants and to the fans and newcomers to the culture who watch this when were done. In the meantime this new trailer will give you a taste of how this project has evolved and started to take shape.

This particular entry is a short one as I wait on confirmations for Europe in September, dates on studio time with talent, and follow up interviews with some professors and promoters. The plan is to get all this done before the end of August which time will only tell; This chapter is one of many… until we open the book again; are you listening?
