Fire Like Rain

Fire like rain
or rain like fire
the dark clouds
make all look dire
light will come again
although it will be an end
and the world will bend
it will not break
for a new beginning
can be no mistake
sinking into a quagmire
of fire like rain
and rain like fire

Power

A gun lying on the ground has no power. It will collect dust as any object left unattended will. If a hand picks that gun up then the same object that once collected dust suddenly becomes a weapon. The hand only has power while holding the gun because without the gun, it is just a hand and we all share them.

That has been my journey through this world: how can I give my hand power when it is like all other hands?

Is This why My Ego is so Big? (My Application for The Jim Rome Show)

The opportuity to write for The Jim Rome Show is humbling. Rome says to give the show two weeks and the reason for that is his consistency will lead you to respect him. Rome is about giving takes and, like them or not, he will have the same take every time he says it.

I have modeled my writing career on the principles of consistency and allowing my work to speak for itself. I have written for the Entertainment Magazine since 2005.

The J. Floyd King Blog (http://emol.org/emclub/?q=blog/15)

The J. Floyd King Library (http://emol.org/emclub/?q=jfloydking)

I used a pen name because I liked J. Floyd King (inspired by Jimi Hendrix, Pink Floyd, Martin Luther King, Stephen King, and John F. Kennedy) better than Dan Smith (my parents almost named me Seth). I was born in northern Ohio and it has been a rough sports life. The Browns of the late '80s were good enough to just fall short. The Indians have ripped my heart out three times real big plus a bunch of smaller times. The Cavs are abysmal.

The Ultimate Bad Boy

The plan that Marvel Studios constructed and is in the process of executing is the most ambitious filmmaking endeavor in the history of cinema. The wild success of it is unprecedented already and the future is going to be full of superhero movies. The second Captain America is out in theaters now but I probably won’t see it and I also never caught the first one, either.

I am not a fan of Captain America because I do not know who his enemies are. And even if I took the time to figure out who Captain America fights with, none of those bad guys could compare to the cast of bad guys in Gotham City. I realize now that I have veered from the Marvel universe into the world of DC Comics but rest assured that DC is working their own angle as they were inspired by the gameplan of Marvel.

Megalomaniacs and Mockingjays

The two characters pushing the story of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire are Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) and President Snow (Donald Sutherland). Katniss is the young woman living in a horribly cruel world that now has hope because of her defiance in the 74th Hunger Games. President Snow is the megalomaniac who is seeing the world he rules slowly changing.

There is so much mystery behind the story of modern day Panem. There have been 74 years of peace after a rebellion and the society is geared toward the Capitol as the other 12 Districts live in an oppressive poverty. President Snow leads with an iron fist and the fact that Katniss and Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson) did not fight to the death in the 74th Hunger Games has given the people he lords over hope.

The Things We Hardly Ever Think About

So you wake up and it is March-ish of 2014.

You yawn and the thoughts begin to flood into your mind:

There have been two world wars

The Roman Empire fell

A guy named Jesus was born

The Egyptians built the pyramids

The only reason that it is "2014" has a lot to do with a book called the Bible

By now we are out of bed and grooming for the day but you see the point that we are now the culmination of so many days lived.

Then you think about that really great day you had. The one where the lights were green, the women all smiled, every song enhanced what you were doing then you retired to a great night of sleep. Life seems so simple at the end of those days but we know that it has become so complex.

Origins

Life...

I have been a student of life and it has caused this rebellion within my soul that always makes me question why things are done the way they are done. My mind tells me that things are done the way they are because that is all we know so I am always trying to learn new and better ways to do things.

It is a rebellion to improve the status quo as I do accept that the status quo is a great place to begin any form of improvement. Things have been done the way they have been done for a reason and that reason has been around longer than I have.

Or has it?

Yes, the body I inhabit now has mere decades of life on this planet but what about my soul?

2013's Parting Shot

Has there ever been a better marriage than the one being shared by pop culture and social media? We have all become a part of the pop culture landscape because every little thought we have and every little thing we do has a venue thanks to social media.

There have been some heartbreaks along the way...

Pop culture had to break-up with newspapers and the evening news because social media is younger and hotter. Social media had to dump MySpace to make time to juggle Facebook and Twitter. Newspapers and the evening news are not able to get word out fast enough anymore in this information age. MySpace is a heartbreaking story of the third prettiest girl at the ball because with the pace of the world today, the third time is a charm adage has gone the way of the dodo.

On the Cusp of Heaven: The Production Blog

I have been wanting to capture some of the zaniness that has been involved with my project On the Cusp of Heaven and I have not known where to begin.

Do I start by comparing filmmaking to an oceanic trip into the unknown with your ship, crew and the hope of finding land? Seems a bit extreme since Columbus found the Americas over five hundred years ago, I mean, many moons have passed since then.

I like the one where filmmakers choose a hill and that becomes symbolic of the line they draw in the sand regarding their project. Of course I am surrounded by mountains and although I am not afraid of heights per se, falling sure does scare the bejesus out of me.

Point One Four (.14) Productions

I tried to make this movie called One Night back in 1997. I bought a camcorder on a Visa card and tried to make a movie about two brothers; one was a yuppie and the other was a gangster. I shot a part of one scene and that was all I accomplished. I did not even have a production company name. The camcorder would not open to release the tape so I took it to get looked at and I do not think I ever went back to get it.

I met the young woman who would be my wife after the failure of 1997 and in 2001, I tried to make One Night again. I had a production company name this time around that was born of the idealism coursing through my veins as a 24 year old: Hedonistic Productions. It was an attempt to live the best of life, to live what I thought was a hedonistic existence of the best food, best drink, best woman and the best of everything else.
