Re: I smell "Howard envy"

A former child actor who, against all odds, becomes a highly successful movie director. He has the pick of top screenplays and actors, plus plenty of willing producers to bankroll high budget thriller, suspense, romance, and fantasy stuff that succeeds at the box office. He can even afford to sponsor projects that have no commercial prospects, purely because he is interested in them.

Plus, he's not afraid to appear as he is: a frumpy, middle-aged baldy.

Yes, "success" is supposed to consist of some spiritual state, or reciprocated love, or having more goods and toys than your neighbors. Howard might, or might not, have such things, or the option to have them.

But he's got something just as important: he does what he likes.

If you can't have everything, that's not a bad situation to enjoy.

Oh sure, I'll grant you all that.

But I'm not envious; just annoyed with Hollywood for treating us all like we're stupid, force-feeding us day in and day out. For the first time in my life, I've even begun avoiding movies, and even most television.
