Check out my new gig atClever Films!CEO James Dalyand his partners in horrific crime are producing a slate of intriguing horror movies following his horror producer debut with Let Us Prey, starring Liam Cunningham (‘Game of Thrones’) and Pollyanna McIntosh (‘The Walking Dead’). I am excited to have been offered a creative role as a script analyst and an opportunity to head the company’s ambitious social responsibility program – spending a generous portion of each film’s budget on social enterprise schemes that support marginalized people around the world.
Although Clever Films doesn’t accept unsolicited scripts, I’m happy to receive a one-page pitch! I rarely sleep and when I do, I tend to dream in horror anyway, so… 💁♀️
Thanks to the festival for selectingTransference(originally for its 2020 film festival, which was cancelled because of COVID) and to theTuscon Weeklyfor mentioning our micro budget indie film in their article about the festival!
Is it my bipolar mind playing tricks on me or are there now more awareness days than unawareness days? What about an Unawareness Awareness Day? Has anybody had the awareness or unawareness to think of that? If there is an Unawareness Awareness Day, I am unaware of it.
NoooooooOOOOOOO! I missed Bipolar Awareness Day March 30! But I wish you all a happy Bipolar Unawareness Day today. To mark the unoccasion, I did some digging and found my elusive, best ever screenshot of Bipolar Express in Dropbox. You don’t get much more educaitonal than THIS!
Sadly, it was swiftly amended by somebody who doesn’t enjoy an amusing typo quite as much as I do. I guess I just didn’t see the point of subscribing after that…
Of course EVERY day is Bipolar Awareness Day if you have bipolar or care for somebody who does. And you shouldn’t have to face it alone!
Bipolar Hong Kong 躁鬱香港 started out as my humble blog in a some might say losing battle to try and keep myself sane. Over the past 7 years it has evolved into a leaderless movement of likeminded souls searching for enlightenment, empowerment and a platform to connect.
The group offers free, monthly support groups in Central and (since 2020) on Zoom for Hongkongers affected by bipolar disorder, their friends and families, including peer mentoring, the odd socially distanced social, and access to creative opportunities via Mental ideas. If you’re looking for peer support, a chance to vent and share ideas, join us!
Series 2 of myMental Ideas Podcast(Oddcast??) will be back on the air @RTHK Radio 3in weekly episodes with a new twist, a live studio format and an electric mix of local and international guests!

Larry is bestselling author of some 15comic booksand children’s book seriesThe Fart Brothers, the latter of which he wrote under the pseudonym MD Whalen (until I outed him on air).

I am flattered to be mentioned in a few of his rants after casting him, aged 53, as a 16 year old boy in Miss Adventure meets Motorhead, which was shown on Funny or Die. Thanks to Chicago radio hosts WC TurckandKerri Kendallfor reminding me of our madcap little escapade gatecrashing a Motorhead gig @ Madison Square Garden in their preamble to an interview with Dan about the book last week!
Dan has experienced international success as an actor and screenwriter. He was a recurring guest in the Trolls Anonymous & Death & The Frozen Tundra episodes of S1 of my Mental Ideas Podcast and will be back again in S2! His debut book is really quirky, funny and the first in a trilogy based on his Facebook rants from 2008 to the present day. Enjoy!
