Filmmaker - Musician - Photographer

So, what's been going on?

Hello?  Are you still there?

You may have stopped coming to this site because I don't update it often enough.  I'll be the first to admit that qledbetter.com has become very lame.  I used to write entertaining blog posts about life and love and entertainment and shit like that, but somehow I slipped into this vibe where I just posed pictures of things.  It was an effortless practice and the 3 of you that still visit this site deserve more than that.

That still begs the question:  WHAT THE HELL HAVE I BEEN UP TO?! 

Well, I wish I had a good answer for you.  The truth is that, while I have been up to quite a bit, none of those bits kept me from actually putting forth an effort into updating this site and writing a decent blog post.   

Most of my time has been spent starting my production company, The Bang Bang Theory.   Click the link and check out the site.  It's my new baby and my ticket to the big time (or mediocrity...I think I'll settle for mediocrity if that's the best I can do).

Aside from starting my production company, this has just been an extremely emotional year.  I think I have changed more in the past year than I have in the past 10 years.  I've made new friends.  I've gotten closer to friends I already had.  I've lost old friends.  I've gotten some of those friends back in a kinda-friends way.  I've almost lost even older friends and now I'm closer friends with those friends than I've ever been since we've started friending in friendship.

.......friends.

I've gotten closer to my family.  I've gotten closer to m'lady.  I received Official Selection in my first film festival.  I'm in two bands now.  I've changed my wardrobe TWICE.  I've started writing damn near every day.  I've been working on so many film projects and actually getting them DONE.  I turned 33 years old.  It's just been a lot.

None of these things are bad.  All are good.  It's just a lot to deal with, but I hope it never slows down.  I've never felt more alive and I can't wait to share what I have in store with all of you. 

Well, okay.  That's it.  That's the "revitalization blog post".  I'll do better moving forward to delude myself into thinking that you actually care about what I'm doing and fill you in.   

Now if you will excuse me I have to find pictures to add to this post.  (WARNING:  The pictures likely will have nothing to do with the contents of this post, as it is difficult to find the right image to convey "pretentious 30-something neurosis". )
