No, it's just that my poo poo's all hosed and I sleep in the day time instead of at night. So in the winter I'll be waking up around the time it gets dark or when it already is. I have issues with hypersomnia too.

Have you considered sleeping at night and being awake during the day?

There's reports that her agent warned her against being alone with him, but she hasn't said Weinstein had done anything to her. But he blacklisted Renee Russo and Ashley Judd for turning him down and this list of people who accused him of some sort of misconduct

also includes Angelina Jolie, Gwyneth Paltrow and Cate Blanchett so I don't think there was anyone who he would have considered too famous to assault.

I can't remember who said it or whether it was even in this particular thread, but someone said they're having trouble finding the "energy" to watch movies and I'm feeling this same way recently. Watching movies at home has always been rough because it's difficult to get immersed in an environment with so much easy distraction, but now it feels even more difficult. I have almost all the major streaming services and it still feels hard to find something new to commit to watching

Yes, but I have to vote for the BAFTAs so I have been doing my customary Dec/Jan watching binge. Didnít watch many films at allprior to that.

I appreciate everyone congratulating Debbie Does Dagon and MacheteZombie on their new stardom as CineD Mods.

This is gonna be a little transition period, as I plan to step own as CineD Mod once they're comfortable with the positions.

There's nothing in my personal life that I have to take care of; no forums drama has scared me off; I'm mentally and physically fine. I just know that, like any other elected position, there should be turnover to keep things fresh and moving in a positive, progressive way.

I have really enjoyed being CineD mod, through the bad and good. It's been an interesting, helluva run. I want to thank anyone and everyone who took the time to write me a kind or supportive PM or helped me out. I hope you continue to show the same support--or more!--to DDD and MZ.

I plan to stick around CineD, the SA forums, so there's no goodbyes needed. I plan to keep running some of the Horror Challenge threads, and I'll probably assist with trying to make Movie of the Month catch on more (this month is Crumb, and it rules!). And I'll also be around in the discord still.

Thanks for trusting me to mod for as long as I did!

Youíve been an awesome mod. Thank you for your service!

I think I mentioned here a while back that my partner was being tested for leukemia. Well, that didnít turn out to be the case.

However, she was diagnosed with fibromyalgia today. What that means, basically, is that her central nervous system is haywire in a way that will make her extremely fatigued and achey at random. Imagine if you got the flu five fimes a month, and it lasted three days or so each time.

Itís a condition that cannot be cured, usually lasts a lifetime, and will obviously render her more or less totally unable to work. Weíre going to need to make some big changes.

I have posted a link to a blank transaction summary sheet. This was an initiative led by the British Film Institute, which also provides equity funding to films. It's applicable to pretty much any independent film, and a very useful tool for outlining an entire film financing transaction, including the interplay between financing and production. My job is pretty much everything leading up to here, populating this document (with some help from producers), and then resolving the various issues that it raises, moving into closing the financing. The TSS is not usually completed 100% with everything resolved - it gets advanced far enough so that everyone understands the transaction sufficiently well to draft their own agreements, to help resolve initial issues, and highlight those that are still open. Feel free to ask questions.
