But what about those who know what they want to do, have the drive & ambition, are extremely talented, yet kind of get swept to the side by society? No, they didn't get that lucky break of having someone stumble upon their talent, who happened to be with the "in crowd", who could make their dream a reality.
So how do we help someone reach the greatness, we know they are destined for? I have no fucking idea. But I'm gonna try. I need to try something. Writing this blog is the first step to that something. Maybe YOU know someone who can help? Or maybe I'll just be like those annoying asshats and spam the fuck out of people until someone gives in and reads this?
My friend Andrew has a dream and I want to do what I can to help him reach that dream. Why? Because I feel obligated, as a friend, to do my part to help him. Because I believe in him and his dream. And because I feel inspired to help as much as I possibly can from 2000 miles away.
Andrew Scott Ramsey's dream is to become a film maker. He has written a script, hired actors and tried to raise money for his project. Alas, the road is long and difficult, and at times leaving him feeling defeated.

I'm asking you to take a chance on this random guy who wrote a movie script, like the millions of other random-movie-script-writing-guys. Only this guy is good. REALLY good, and worth the chance.
He might be pissed that I'm doing this, but fuck it, he'll get over it. Here is something he wrote today on his fb page that inspired me to write this blog:
All I ever have wanted to do was make movies. The first time I saw 'Ghostbusters' in 1987, I knew that I was meant to entertain. I don't know why, but it has always been my gut instinct. But like a weak-willed pussy, all I did was make the wrong choices. I joined the Air Force and did my time, but I never belonged there. It was never right for me. So, I got out, not of my own acc
