Shameless Self Promotion (Literally. This is not an essay.)
by Stephen Gillikin
This is one of those rare occurrences where I put nearly zero effort into a post on my website (I typically put in about 13% effort.)
I've never been interested in twitter, and I still find it to be one of the more worthless over-hyped technologies of recent years.
That being said, I have recently signed up for an account.
BUT, the reason is......
Starting June 14th, myself and two other fun folks will be embarking on a roadtrip / documentary / film making experiment.
The idea (as is rather obvious from the title) is to travel to 50 states in 50 states whilst shooting one short film in every state along the way.
Here is the link
Kicking America's Ass: 50 States in 50 Days to Shoot 50 movies.
And I'd like to point out right now, that the terming of "Kicking America's Ass," is not some anti-patriotic speak, but rather the opposite in that it's the idea of being able to travel incredible distances and do seemingly improbable things, because we're kicking America's Ass along the way.
If you still don't get it, that's fine, and please now resort to imagining a person foot punching a country in the butt.
This of course is impossible though, because countries don't have human butts, and foot punching is typically referred to as "kicking."
So, with the KAA trip embarking soon, a twitter has also been set up for it.
This will provide updates and occasionally maybe witty insights.
However, I too decided to set up a twitter because
1. I am a narcissist. And
2. I can post things very specific to my perspective whilst travelling.
"Albuquerque? More like AlbuJERKe!"
"Florida? More like WHOREda!!"
"North Carolina? More like North Carolina!!....I mean, more like North CareVAGINA!"
and many other insanely clever and hilarious thoughts.
Maybe I'll even post pictures of food I'm about to eat. This of course will be done "ironically" because posting food photos is played out.
And then maybe I'll even post tweets about how people posting photos of their food is played out. This too will be done "ironically" because people complaining about people posting food photos is also played out.
So that's the jist, folks.
Now here are some links to different other publications saying junk about KAA.
A Hell of a Road Trip - Screen Daily
1 car, 4 friends, 50 states, 50 days, 50 movies - Daily Breeze
And my new, stupid twitter is here: twitter.com/StephenGillikin
With a love that will echo through the ages,
