The Immortal Augustus Gladstone
USA 2013

Augustus Gladstone believes he's immortal. Squatting in an abandoned hotel in Portland, he shares colorful tales of his 150 year existence. From his travels across America during the depression, to befriending Andy Warhol, to seeing the 1900 Paris Expo, Augustus charms the film crew who discovered him on You Tube. Eventually Augustus sets out to find his only living descendant: Lucky Gladstone. His sojourn causes the crew to question their responsibility to Augustus, their subject. The Immortal Augustus Gladstone is about myth, mortality, and a film about film making.

Vampire Physiology

Blood has been a symbol of life since very ancient times. The blood in our veins has always been iconic of our continuing life. To lose too much blood is to lose consciousness, breath, and eventually, our very lives. If a person or animal is already dead and is cut open, blood does not flow. Only the living have blood that flows. Blood has been used throughout the ages as a ceremonial sacrifice.

Night's Sky

 

Such a cold and lonely place.

Warmth will never be a problem as I think of your smile.

Would you light a candle as I fly past?

Friends, forever love. It's as it should be. Not as it seemed.

Never alone...as I look down and search for your face...

Would you look for me as I go by?

With thoughts of you space and time can not last.

But I'll never be cold when I see that beautiful smile.

Your eyes light up like stars have never dreamed.

Up there...Up in the night's sky...

I Died Again

I died again tonight...

I jumped off that cliff and woke up on the rebound..

Alive again...Kissed the devil while angels watched.

Dreams filled with blood...Hunted or the hunter.

They never win...Just me in the end.

 

Woken from death...Yearning for a fight.

Smiling as I put my knuckles in someones face.

You deserve so much better.

They all are trying to get to second base.

But they'll never get that it's not a race.

Time's better spent getting to know you.

 

I died again tonight...
