My path was set. I was ready to make films professionally and my tools to do so were falling into place. The money from the Sunshine Foundation finally came through (a cool grand) and I used it in tandem with my credit card to fund my very own laptop.

 

I stuck with Dell and decked it out with state-of-the-art processing power and the best graphics card and storage money can buy (in 2005). All in all, the impressive laptop cost me around twenty-five hundred dollars.

 

Yet, I still felt like I was missing something even as my desired career was well underway. I had spent the past two years being comforted with the fact that I remained in the vicinity of my family and friends, but I had spent the past twenty years without a single relationship.

 

Sure, I’d had some little childhood flings as many kids are wont to do, such as my girlfriend, Jenn, in second grade or my other girlfriend, Danielle – of one day – also in second grade, but I never had a true relationship.

To navigate parenthood is tantamount to a guy on a high wire, balancing only upon the small area in which disaster is preventable while any other step can drastically alter your life. My parents knew how to walk that line during my treatment (and for the most part during our younger years). See, as a child, the influence of adults is the word of God. Sure some denounce God’s name and go against his will. Likewise, it’s a fine line between helping shape a child’s passions and squashing them without realization. It’s through a certain path on which we must venture to be our best selves.

72- Nostalgia Be Damned

The two guests on today’s show are from the titular podcast, Nostalgia Be Damned! Brandon (former guest and co-host of We Need Movies with Jamie) and Zach Warren graciously let Jamie crash their podcast and record a special segment during Jamie’s surprise visit to the East Coast.

The guys simply discuss the lone topic: What is nostalgia? Where does it come from? And why do we feel it? A fitting topic considering Jamie’s run of #52PickUp from this very show.

71- Wind River and Annabelle Creation

It’s a two-man show today as Jamie’s working the majority of this week! We discuss the Sundance hit, Wind River, as well as the Box Office King of August (a little prognostication, but I’m not far off): Annabelle Creation.

 

Does Wind River have Oscar Buzz? (It better!) Will a sequel to a spinoff from a guy who spent years making shorts in his house in Sweden be the scariest movie of 2017 (likely, yes).

 

Then, Jamie talks about his #52PickUp, Don’t Tell Mom the Babysitter’s Dead.

 

You all may have first heard about Christina Applegate during her run on Married With Children, but I first fell in love with her here.

 

Opening and a Special Announcement! (Starts at 00:00)

Alex– Wind River (1:48)

I despised all of these medical sidesteps; I just wanted to live a normal life. I knew that I didn’t want to become a hypochondriac, but how can someone who personally experienced all that I did be okay with the knowledge that – at any moment – this could all come crashing down?

 

I had it fairly easy as a kid all things considered, but I consumed food like an opulent King every single day and luckily, my body was able to bounce back. Only until it was literally able to bounce.

 

Even then, I hardly exercised and my life goals were minimal. At what point would the other shoe drop? Well, it turned out that point was at age eighteen when my life had been reset. I was now left picking up the pieces of my old way of living and aimlessly looking for a new puzzle frame.
