Cyborg Documentarian

"I am a filmmaker who lost an eye so naturally I decided to modify my prosthetic eye into a video camera." Whoa. [via]


Woh. I saw this guy when he introduced his film Let's All Hate Toronto at a local rep cinema. I thought the eyepatch was part of his schtick. Guess not. It's like x2.

He's very cool. And respectful. Kept his eye in his head the whole time when I met him. Oh yeah: He's CANADIAN. Like all the cool Cyborg kids!

I woke up in the middle of the night about 48 hours ago and wrote this note in a text message to myself: "Lions Win Extra Trip to the Salad Bar." I remember very clearly typing out the text message because looking at the screen of my phone after peacefully sleeping for several hours felt like I was staring at the sun. And I also remember making sure that in spite of the difficulty of looking at the blazing screen, I made sure that the auto-text finishing my words was making them say exactly what I wanted so that I wouldn't forget my great idea when I woke up. The troubling thing to me is that when I could seemingly be so lucid while making so little sense. I'm pretty sure my note was shorthand, but beyond that I'm guessing. The "Lions" was likely a reference to the 0-10 Detroit Lions, but the "extra trip to the salad bar" appears to have crept into my waking consciousness from another universe where "salad bar" has a different meaning. Looking back on other some other decisions I've made in life, I have to wonder if this level of lucidness has followed me around for a long time and I'm only now realizing it.
