Tina, our church recently had a major WIN concerning abortion. A teen in crisis came to my mom's life group leader unsure whether to take her baby to term or go to Planned Parenthood. I am HAPPY to report that the church stepped up and helped this woman out. First they took an offering among members, where my mother contributed $200 bucks I believe, then she showed up to church. That was two weeks ago. This is a situation that ladies at my church are working through and I'm so proud of them. God works in mysterious ways. It's so cool when when we get the chance to impact other people's lives for the better. Sorry to read you're so down on me, Tina. Though you and I don't eye-to-eye on abortion, you're still welcome to frequent my blog and comment as you see fit. I'm really not a great political mind, but in these days and times sometimes you don't have a choice but you have to stand up and make your voice known even when that brings you into conflict with others.
Explain your point yourself, Tina. Thanks! XOXO (kiss-kiss) - a playful E.C. Henry after work with a Budweiser. ;)

Hello again! Last week me and my mom did our first visit to the beaches of southeast America. We hit beaches on Florida, Georgia, and South Carolina before we drove back to Kingsport, TN. Of all we saw we thought this beach -- was the best! And guess where that... Continue reading

Tina, you must have read some of my past posts to know how much I LOVE Taylor Swift. I wrote two scripts with her in mind: So Go Back & Get Her, then Kathy Smith Conquers Duboose High School. I tried to woo her in attempt to connect with her on these projects, but alas I got nowhere with that. Taylor Swift is doing her own thing. She's got her own friends and people she likes and I'm not someone she communicates with. Still, I LOVE her and wish the the best. Taylor Swift will be in a David O. Russell movie: Amsterdam; which in post-production and should be released sometime soon so look for that: Amsterdam. Since it's not like we ever talk what does it matter what her stance on abortion is? I'm not a divisive person. I look for ways to connect with people not repel them away. I'm not sure where you're coming with your last sentence, "Can you claim to honor life, when the mother will now die." That doesn't make any sense to me. I love mothers and babies, all things women in general.
Hello again, Tina. Got me before I head off to work... Yes, there are people who celebrate abortion. I've watched it myself on TV, and it makes me wanna throw up. The public advocates of abortion and getting grosser and grosser all the time. I believe God is exposing them as more and more footage of abortion supporters gets broadcast on TV. I love women and don't feel comfortable telling what to do, especially when I don't know their story. For me the issue of abortion is about honoring life. If you love God and read His word, the issue becomes clear and settled. If you do not love God, you can come up with reasons to justify anything -- even the barbaric practice of abortion.
Good morning, Tina! Thanks for visiting my blog. There's lots to see here, I've got nearly 500 posts. Hoping to have a new one up later today after work. I like to write a little on my novel before going to work. NEVER understood the barbaric love for abortion that some in this country have. That said I do pay attention when proponents of this utterly gross, and abomination before God speak out on the subject of abortion. Why support abortion, don't you love God?
Glad you came to my blogsite and leave it satisfied, Glen. The 2020 Election was a farce and there is not nearly enough meaningful reform done. The bottom line is I have lost faith in American elections. Our country is in decline. And this is due in large part to the Democratic party.
I've seen some of the footage from Capital mob scene. It looked like a bunch of tourists venturing about. This is the FIRST time I've heard about an attempt to assassinate Mike Pence, who was the vice president at the time. IF that were true that would have a lot more serious coverage especially with the bias and corrupt news media in America today. The 2020 election was a farce. A travesty of justice, destruction of the will of the people, and stolen election by corrupt people in high places of power. I'm always willing to hear and weigh evidence, though. So thanks for making your opinions known, Glen. These are dark days we're living in. The Democrat Party has made that so.
Good morning, Glenn. I see you commented on 23rd and it's now the 25th as I respond. Sorry for the delay I was on vacation and only had limited abilities for past week. To answer your question I haven't paid much attention to the January 6th hearings. Why? Because there was a peaceful transfer of power Donald Trump to Joe Biden. And Because I think all this is, is an attempt by the Democrats to smear their political enemies. We have REAL problems in this country and the Democratic Party doesn't want to deal with any of that. Not sure why you infer I'm in denial. Joe Biden is the acting president right now. That's just a fact. And the January 6 commission wasn't debating election fraud, the were giving the Democrat Party slant of January 2021 entry into Congress by a group of people that were pre-warned about the crowd, yet Nanci Pelosi FAILED to take steps to ramp-up security. YEP, good ol' Nanci Pelosi majority speaker for the House failed her own party that day. Why isn't that ever brought up? Still, thanks for visiting the site, Glenn. I don't talk too much politics on this site. Not that I don't have opinions on the matter, it's just gets to divisive, and I'm not a great political mind anyway. I'm an entertainer. As such I try to entertain whoever comes my way! Thanks for the visit.

On Friday, June 10th, 2022 I turn 53 years old. And yeah I'm starting to feel and look it. The hairs of my mustache are now a mix of blonde and white. Likewise the hair top of my head is starting to change for the white too. Welcome to getting... Continue reading

Ari, I did watch The Strange Thing About the Jacksons as soon as I got home from work. Subject wise, an incestuous relationship between a father and a son isn't my cup of tea; and a subject matter I'm not brave enough (or knowledgeable on) to write on. BUT I respect you as a writer and director for making that short. I had a real good upbringing that had none of that, so subject matters and themes like you so unflinchingly depicted are THANKFULLY very foreign to me. This Friday I turn 53, and am still girl crazy; though at this point it looks like I'll be single for the rest of my life. :( I don't know what to say beyond that. Hopefully, you still want to connect with me and bring Gravesite Crows to life. I think you'll have a blast working with me -- if you take that plunge. But I get that you are an established pro; and have TONS of other options available to you. Maybe sometime we can Skype or something like that. If not, and you're not into me; still, thanks for visiting my blog. I am a fan of yours and wish you nothing but God's best as you move forward with your promising career as a filmmaker. Sincerely, E.C. Henry from Kingsport, Tennessee

Good morning, Ari. Glad to see I didn't scare you off with that last post. It was a little harsh. One of my favorite movies off all-time was Pan's Labyrinth, which has a pagan centerpiece that a little girl gets pulled into. I loved that movie. Mandy, Nicholas Cage's bloody movie from a couple years ago had a cult's ringleader as the master villain too. And I liked that movie. So cults as villains can work. Congratulations on getting Midsommar made and all the past movies you've done. You're building your career. I'm an easy going guy. Maybe a little opinionated at times, but easy going. As a creative you should feel free to explore ideas and make the best art you can. I briefly glanced over The Strange Thing about the Johnson's off the link you provided. Wow, what a risk you took starting off with a dad catching his son chocking his chicken! Will try to watch your short in its entirety when I get home from work tonight. I'm totally on board with the central family being black. One of my favorite movies was Black Panther. Also loved Hidden Tiger, Crouching Dragon from a few years back. Love most Will Smith and Kevin Hart movies. I'm not a racial guy, and have never put many "messages" of that sort in my writing. In the end either you have a good story or you don't, though sometimes the ethnic angle does add some spice to the mix. Anyway, look forward to talking to you more about where you are in your career and where you want to go moving forward. If you pull the trigger on Gravesite Crows, I'll do my best to set you up for success. And if you decide you don't like me, I'll bow out gracefully, and you can run with the baton as you see fit. You're the established pro. I'm just a guy who's been at this forever trying to get SOMETHING made before I kick the bucket.

Ari Astor, JUST read your Midsommar script. Though I would LOVE to connect with you, as you are an established pro; I gotta admit that script rallied emotions for me that I didn't even think I had. My grandfather -- on my father's side -- was from Sweden and his heritage was big part of who he was and how he saw himself. After reading Midsommar I can confidently say that my grandfather would KICK YOU IN BALLS for how you depicted his home country. My grandfather loved the Lord. We worked in construction and was BLIND IN ONE EYE. He had the toughest of lives. I only knew him when he was CRIPPLED from a life in the states providing for his family WORKING IN CONSTRUCTION. Paul Henrikson was a simple, Godly man, who represents. NOTHING that you have in that pro-pagan script you wrote describes him or where he came from. Yeah, I'm his grandson and not worthy to bear his name; but you picked the WORST subject matter in an attempt to connect with me. Not that I'm mad at you, I don't know you from the next guy down the street. But I loved my GODLY grandfather, and will never connect with the way you depicted his homeland in such a gawd-awful, NEGATIVE light. Sweden is a good place. It gave birth to my grandfather and grandmother on my fathers side. As such their grandson remembers their example.

Ari Astor WRITER AND DIRECTOR of Midsommar it is an HONOR to have you visit my blog. I'm guessing you're FUCKING WITH ME posting the link to a script that's already been made into a film. And Disappointment Blvd., your latest movie sounds a lot like your comment. Off IMBD: "A decades-spanning portrait of a director not knowing how to finalize editing about one of the most successful entrepreneurs of all time." That said, I'm game to read Midsommar. I didn't see Midsommar when it came out to the theaters, BUT I did see Hereditary. Don't know if you know this but I JUST sent a query letter to Ti West's rep trying to get him to read Gravesite Crows with an eye he might be interested in it. If you ever wanna read Gravesite Crows, possibly connect and reshape the horror/slasher genre -- I'm game! That said the context of this conversation has changed. Just so you know I'm a working class Joe. Currently I'm testing heaters for TPI in Johnson City, Tennessee. They day job calls and I've gotta go to it. 7 a.m. - 3:30 p.m. EST. Irregardless, when I get home I'll read your script -- which got produced! Yay! And tell you what I thought of it. Just so you know horror isn't all I write. If you want a good laugh request my latest, So Go Back & Get Him. It's a raunchy romantic comedy in the vein of How To Lose a Guy in 10 Days meets The 40-Year-Old Virgin. My e-mail is: ECHenrikson@aol.com, my phone number is 423-707-8925 which has texting. Talk to ya soon! Thanks for starting my morning off on the right foot! Off to testing with the Dr. Frankenstine tests I go! Think big block testers like the ones used in Frankenstine movies of the 1930s. No shit, that's what I'm testing with. I'll try to get a photo to show you.

Hello all! Feels like I've been away from this blog for a long time. Sorry about that. BUT I did just finish my 28th spec. script; the raunchy romantic comedy that completes the So Go Back & Get Her franchise with So Go Back & Get Him. So Go Back... Continue reading

Thanks for visiting the site, Koons. No, I'm don't know what your'e referring to using the term, "readymade". When I think of readymade I think of poorly made dinners prepared by companies trying to solicit business from lazy people who don't want to do the proper prep work to make a decent dinner. Hopefully your use to the term is tastier one. ;)
The song "Common People" by Pulp was fun. Sounds like a song I could have used in "Puppies. Puppies? Puppies!!!" a few years ago. Shared that song over on Scriptshadow... http://scriptshadow.net/the-most-controversial-scriptshadow-newsletter-ever-is-in-your-inbox/ Thanks. Two more scenes to write then the 1st draft of "So Go Back & Get Him" will be in the books. :)
Thanks for visiting and commenting on my blog post, Jerry! Yeah, me and my mom were hoping the rapture would happen on Easter -- but it didn't! Christians having been waiting for the 2nd coming of Christ since after Jesus rose from the dead -- and started showing up again! Guess we have to wait a little longer. Still, be ready for the rapture and the 2nd coming of Jesus. Things are getting awfully dark in our world these days with threats from Russia, and how bad things are getting in the United States thanks to the Demorats, and the woke left. Know what you believe and why you believe it. Love the Lord with all your heart, mind, and soul. Jesus is coming back again. Make sure you're one of His sheep and that YOUR NAME is written in the Lamb's Book of Life.

A couple weeks ago a commenter on this blog asked me to shed some details on my attempted suicide. Maybe that commenter thought that was something recent, but alas it wasn't. I has now become part of my "testimony". When I hear the word, "testimony", I think of telling the... Continue reading

Identifying good music is not in your wheelhouse, David. To have the audacity to say that Ryan Adams performs Taylor Swift's songs ever better that she does proves that you have NO TASTE when in comes to identifying quality music. My suggestion is that you try to find something you are good at. Maybe you're a good: rock, paper, scissors; guy. Try your hand at that. Just don't impose your CRAP musical preferences here on my blogsite.
David, you're the one who introduced a musical act to upstage Taylor Swift. I'm not interested in learning about that person. If you wanna advance that line of think do so off my blog.
David, Please DON'T send me ANYTHING more about that Taylor Swift imposter. I'm not interested in them at all. This is me being nice. E.C. Henry from Kingsport, TN.
Hey thanks for visiting my blog, David! What a pleasant surprise to start my Sunday. :) Taylor Swift is a PHENOMINAL talent. If you ever get the chance to see her strut her stuff in concert -- GO. I saw her a few years ago and was blown away. She is gorgeous. She is fun. She is classy. And her singing is getting better with time. Have you listened to her Fearless (Taylor's Version) record. It is phenomenal. The Other Side of the Door, Jump then Fall, aren't talked about half as much as they deserve. As for the impostor you mentioned, that impostor should make their own music if they have any talent at all and leave the queen of pop alone!
I laugh at most of the "news" I hear these days. So many people think their vote matters, when it's clear to me that U.S. Elections in the United States have been subverted and taken over. Our elections are for show, to give people the false confidence that they can vote people in and out of office. I'll never get deeply wrapped up in these debates again, because I know what the answer is; and no one is serious about making the reforms that return the will of elections to the people of the United States again.
I was just giving you some insight, that's all. Yeah, you're probably right; it's probably all for naught. At this point it's hard to imagine ANYONE wanting to work with me. I've tried breaking in many times before, and never gotten anywhere with it. :(
