Hello friends, especially those not in the Philippines,

I know times are tight, and the holidays are around the corner, but consider this a personal plea to hit you up for cash. The recent super-typhoon Haiyan / Yolanda has absolutely devastated the Philippines, and the full extent of the catastrophe has yet to be seen. Yes, good vibes and prayers are appreciated, but help in the form of cold hard cash works quite well too. Please, please give what you can -- a little will go a long way.

I'm not here to debate relative overhead costs, political agendas, etc., but I'm posting an NBC News article below that prominently features the National Alliance for Filipino Concerns (NAFCON), whom I know and trust, and to whose disaster relief fund I donated.

"In 2025, Oakland opens up all its iconography—city logo, stationary, all official uniforms (police, fire, etc), etc—and allows any Oakland resident to create, collaborate and vote on designs." — What do you guys think of this idea? Click through to support it, ask questions, and/or refine it!

Big fan of this film; one night only engagement at a great venue.

Compared to Kubrick, Hitchcock and David Lynch, I AM A GHOST is a chilling ghost story told from the point of view of "the ghost"." Emily, a troubled spirit, haunts her own house every day, wondering why she can't leave. With the help of Sylvia, a clairvoyant hired to rid the house of spirits, Emily is forced into a 'patient/therapist' relationship, uncovering disturbing mysteries about her past that may help her move on to "the next place".

Winner of 3 Best Film awards and placed in over a dozen top ten lists worldwide, I AM A GHOST, the second film from San Francisco writer/director H.P. Mendoza, is finally here on the big screen, just in time for Halloween!
