Hi Trent! DS

Good to see you hear.
Thanks for the "conversation" heads up.
And the e-mails.

Sorry I've been pretty busy to keep up.
I saw you hear and figured I'd use this op to say hi.

I hope you are doing great in HI.

I'm doing well, but quite busy and hands full of late.

SD went great.

Incredibly busy.
And met lots of great people and had fun at the live art show with Mahfood.
I think there were some photos on DMG.

I saw the photos. That's cool they had you two up on a stage for the show. It looked like a fine time was being had and I'm glad you enjoyed it, nay, rocked it.

Mack is referring to The Conversation (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0071360/?fr=c2l0ZT1kZnx0dD0xfGZiPXV8cG49MHxrdz0xfHE9dGhlIG NvbnZlcnNhdGlvbnxmdD0xfG14PTIwfGxtPTUwMHxjbz0xfGh0 bWw9MXxubT0x;fc=1;ft=20;fm=1), a film in the 70s made by FF Coppolla and starring Gene Hackman. Interest in the film stemmed from this book (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0375709827/ref=sr_11_1/104-3023456-4706303?ie=UTF8), The Conversations: Walter Murch and the Art of Editing Film, which Mack recommended. Murch edited The Conversation, The Godfather, The English Patient, etc and is considered a master. There are a wealth of observations in the book and it's useful for anyone who makes comics or is interested in storytelling. Doubly so, because the person conversing with Murch is Michael Ondaatje, the fine Canadian novelist who wrote the English Patient.

I don't think it's a spoiler to say that the last shot of the film is of the main character in a room that's been destroyed, sitting there playing his saxophone. The ending reminded me of Mack in this way, that no matter what chaos is going on around him, he stays in the creative process.
