Feels Like It's All Over

T2 has been out for 15 days now. It's doing okay, but it's not keeping up with the stats that T1 put up, and I think we needed to do double that to have a shot at the bonus.

I'm not sure what the difference is. Why did that movie blow up massive, but this one isn't? I mean, we're still top 100 in horror--we haven't fallen out of that in the 15 days. But we're staying on page 5-7, not moving up.

The stats are growing REAL slightly every day. But no blowups, and we still haven't topped 100,000 minutes on any day.

I've spread the news as far and wide as I can. Weirdly, a lot of web sites haven't responded to me about the exclusive pics I had for them. I don't get that at all. I see them posting articles about movies that don't have any distribution, don't have anybody you've ever heard of...are they not getting my emails?

At a certain point it feels like a conspiracy, ya know?

So I'm about 99% sure I won't be doing a Ttory movie again. I'm about 95% sure I won't be doing ANY movie again.

If I had simply taken all the money I'd put into T2, I could have taken 3 vacations to Cancun or the Bahamas. As it stands now, I'm going to lose money, and that's for spending TWO YEARS of my life on something. So I PAID money to work for two years.

What kind of fucking idiot does that?

Not this idiot. Not anymore.

Been watching a lot of horror-related movie and TV. Trying to get into that Halloween mood, but it's tough with all this T2 stuff hanging over me, and the weather being so warm and rainy that the trees aren't even changing colors yet.

Almost done the Haunting on Hill House. Good stuff, man.

It's Out. Been A Busy 5 days...


So they published it pretty fast after that last post. I've been spreading the word like crazy.

Went to the convention. It was the busiest I've ever seen it, yet didn't make much money. Spread a lot of flyers. Got to see my convention buds Pennie, Dave and Rob. Met another funny guy who helps run a video restoration and blu ray distributor, plus he has a video store

He told me multiple times that I was a horrible person, but I'm pretty sure he likes me.

Day one a lot of friends spread the news. Not a lot of actors though. It's funny as shit how desperate they are to seem busy, but they never seem too interested in spreading info on a movie they're in that an audience can see.

I scrolled through pages and pages of Amazon's Prime Video list--they're ranked in popularity, and T2 wasn't in the first 300 after the first night.

I checked on day two and it's on page 3. That's top 40. In a day and a half.

So I'm waiting for numbers. They show up, and day one looks like I did almost exactly what the first one did. Huh?

Then day two numbers show up(they might not be final yet) and they appear to have gone up a little, and are nearly identical to T1's day two. It's really strange. I don't know what to make of it.
