I learned a new word thanks to vlogging

In an artist on artist vlog interview, John Cusack and Diablo Cody chat it up online talking about parties, work and their perspective on art. God only knows if their dialog is prepared and rehearsed at some point. I would never be able to keep a straight face and use the word "pastiche." Considering it's hard enough memorizing what it means, the only way I'm ever going to remember to use such a word to describe stuff like the late nite show version of a song's melodic violin similarites to Come on Irene is if I correlate it with the phrase "past ich".

Diablo Cody was at the red carpet party for the film I worked on a couple of months ago and all I could think was that I had zero/nothing/nada to say to her.

Sometime I wonder, if I had what it takes to be a reknown literary artist, I would probably be wired on a medley of presciption medication and illegal drugs just to get thru all the attention during red carpet events. It seems that people who write feel more comfortable living inside their head, as opposed to being out in the open where other people roam.

I also have the same fear of actors as I did of clowns when I was young. To be an actor is like stopping one's heartbeat for the effect of drama. Then, from one moment to the next, starting it back up again once the scene is shot.

What I've been noticing is that a lot of the stuff I write in my blog, I recall during conversations with co-workers. Since I don't assume anybody reads my blog, I just repeat stuff I entered about movies I've seen, songs I like, etc. If I could bring myself to write about film crews more often, I bet I would have plenty to hold up my side of the conversation with a creative writer.
