"The label you give yourself cannot impact external forces that are not motivated by your own psychology or influenced by a third party's pre-existing consciousness of you. We are all presented with reasons to struggle which come from completely external forces; to pretend that one is not struggling is either arrogance or an admission of defeat. To admit that one is struggling is a sign and a source of strength." - Evan A. Baker

I Do All My Own Stunts!
A few weeks ago, when Michael Holmes and I were doing pick ups for The Haunting of Winchester House, we did a stunt where I had to pull and pull him into a magic circle. (Don't worry, it will sort of make sense when you see it.) We were shooting in a cement floored warehouse and I just didn't think to say "Hey, can we put down a furnie pad in case I slip?" And I did slip, of course, and got a rather nasty bruise and there it is on my wrist, in all its beige beauty.
And holy Jesus, my hand looks really big here, doesn't it? I wonder if I could cover my entire face with my hand....
Oh look, I can.
