Hey Batt, when you were filming Uncle Joe’s American Odyssey were there any scenes that “got away”—times that you really regret not capturingPete the Poet
Hi Pete the Poet, I remember that you definitely thought one scene “got away!” I didn’t agree with you at all in that case, but at the time there were hundreds of other things I was certain “got away.” Thankfully now, I don’t feel that way. When I watch Uncle Joe’s American Odyssey, it is more like there are a few dozen scenes I can’t believe I got! I can’t believe how on top of things I was 20 years ago. I’m sure as hell not as on top of doing all those detail-y little things now. I must have been possessed or something, back then. I guess I’m more of a generalist now. Does that make any damn sense? Probably not. I’m probably just in more of a burned-out phase these days. I’ve been traveling a lot this last decade and doing a lot of projects. I think maybe it all got me a bit burned out.
Pete the Poet still writes poetry. He also co-edits the online poetry journal http://www.ADozenNothing.com.
