Thanks to My Coffeeberry Buddies.... K.I.T.

Some times in your life are so unique, you wish you could just freeze them and make it last a little longer........ too bad no one gets that lucky...

This wonderful run officially expires at the end of this month, but i really can't complain because for two years it truly was "good times"...

Thank you... John, Johnathan, Matt, James, Stuart and Nick its been a lotta fun.

All twentysomethings, an incredible ensemble of young minds whose thoughts, tastes and maturity go far beyond their years, all congregating and working at the same 700 sq ft area known as Coffeeberry, my preferred place for thought and relaxation.

For the last two years during this whole filmmaking ordeal, it was great to know that if i could manage to rollerblade just a few miles to "sanctuary" i could count on one of you guys to serve me my brain recharger with nonfat milk and the "supposedly" non-cancerous sugar alternative in the yellow packets (why would anyone pick the pink or blue ones?). Funny (and amazing) thing was it really didn't matter which one of you guys served me cause the conversation was going to be funny, intelligent and enlightening regardless...

(Starbucks clientele, i know you can't comprehend cause uh..............figure it out..... forget it.. )

Almost 20 years their senior(scary!), I've seen the all too familiar pattern where good harmonious people accumulate, create a surreal wonderful environment and then disappear leaving no trace of what was once a comfort zone for many. Sooo, the embrace today, cause it might be gone tomorrow philosophy... no joke, its for real.

A truly rare situation where all these "young" guys could easily debate college professors about any subject, whether it was current events, political agendas, philosophical points of view, and then turn around toward me to start bad mouthing retarded Starbucks customers who accidentally stray in and order Grande Frappuchinos with extra whip cream........ "Uh sir, we only have small, medium and large here...and please refrain from speaking those evil words here or i'll be forced to escort you out from the premises....." anyways....

At the end of the month, the core group of Starbucks Haters will be completely gone and the Jedi will be but two..

Matt left about a month ago to explore his video editing career. James, John, and Johnathan will soon be gone to pursue other interests in a few weeks as well.

Matt, i'll miss the Wes Anderson parallels to life and movies as well as the random observations of how the hell Morrissey has had such an influence on the Latino Youth. James, your rants about redneck life in La Verne and our constant harassment of you as the only male resident ever recorded in the city to own a Louis Vuitton "guy bag" will be sorely missed. John your knowledge of nature trail survival skills and recommendations on manic depressed, suicidal tendencied youth movies are unparalleled. And finally, Johnathan, official defender of Pat Benetar and Steve Perry, the stories of your stage heroics and insight on the differences between film and stage behind the scenes... that was really good, applicable stuff.

I'm always happy to see friends moving on to bigger and better things and wish them all success, but its bitter sweet cause its always sad to see ANY good thing come to an end.

Besides they were all such good shit talkers! hard to find these days ya know!... I'm hoping we can all stay in touch, but its just not that easy these days. Kinda sad, but that's the reality of it all...

Good Luck in your new endeavors!!

Its funny, I saw this day coming, but it really hasn't sunk in yet. Call it denial, but it probably won't hit me till they've all left and the feeling in the shop is different... sigh...

Next month, four new guys or gals will take the place of our departed friends. I'm hoping that the "New" people will be just as fun, knowledgeable and entertaining, and who knows they may even talk more shit than the last bunch..... maybe? who knows?

it just won't be the same....

non-cancerous yellow sugar substitute? is that splenda, the one that was accidentally discovered when someone was trying to make a pesticide?

i don't think it causes cancer, it just destroys your organs and shrinks the thymus... pink and blue are convicted, whereas the charges against yellow are alleged..

so, i should probably use sugar as a substitute for my sugar substitute... that actually makes sense to me...

anony.. thanks for the info

I love your "KIT" touch. I wish that you could write in my yearbooks Rick James. You really are my "BFF," so "don't ever change, always stay the same!"

When am I going to be able to purchase a DVD of your movie? Today, I watched an indie today and thought of you, so I looked up your movie on IMDB. You know what is weird? I think I recognize one of the bartender-actor on your website from when I went to UCLA! (All the girls thought he was hot.) Your movie looks really great, I can't wait to see it!

Whoops, I meant "I recognize the actor who played the bartender..." Sorry for me bad grammar.

This is like the ending of "Cheers". But Cliff goes on to do voices for Pixar, Frasier becomes an X-Men and so-on. Touching post...and I'm also waiting to see your movie!
