Real America

(Originally posted on some other forum at 1:45 AM, 5/30/2006.)

I had an idea tonight that I think will change my life. (Of course, I believe all of everyone's ideas change the whole world, so... uhhh... duh.) Anyway, I think I'm going to make a film. It'll be about America; more specifically the United States of America. It's going to be the real version of all the Rain Mans and Easy Riders and On The Roads and so on. It's going to be a trip up and down and all around these here United States of Amerka, showing the interesting places and people of this country like only I can do.

I'm not going to try to raise any money, and I'm not going to have any money. I'm just going to get a camera and gather the bare necessities, like a couple changes of clothes. Then I'm going to hit the road, on my feet, going wherever people want to take me. I'm going to rely on the American people to keep me going, counting on their generosity to feed me and provide shelter. I'm going to make friends with the people of this country, and then I'm going to show everyone what we're all about.

I don't think anyone has done anything like this before, and I think it will be an awesome film if I actually do it. I won't have to write the story because the story is out there. I won't even need to script the story because I can only go where people take me; it's an adventure. Not only will it be about the people of the United States of America, but it will also be about my quest to document the people and places in the United States of America. It will be about the awesome challenge. It will be about how the experience will have changed me.

It will be about whatever it turns out being about.
