Dim Bulb ~or~ The Foibles of an Eccentric Writer

When I was first starting out in the film business, still at USC cinema as a matter of fact, I heard a story of a famous writer who loved to use just one make and model of typewriter – couldn’t write a lick on anything else.  He was so worried they’d stop making them that he bought 100 of them and put them all in storage.

We’ll, I just bought 48 100w General Electric incandescent bulbs to hang over my desk – not all at once, mind you, but since it is now illegal to sell them in the USA, I wanted to make sure the warm glow in my creative space never snuffs out.  Suddenly at least one wave of life’s ceaseless seething sea of stress has receded.
