Memo To Chavez: Don't Let Terry Gilliam Direct

Venezuelan president (who's working on the "for-life" part)Hugo Chavez is distributing 1 million free copies of Don Quixote to his countrymen as part of a nationwide literacy campaign based on a Cuban model.

According to the BBC, Chavez called for his pueblos to, "feed ourselves once again with that spirit of a fighter who went out to undo injustices and fix the world." And who was bat-guano crazy. Good luck with that.

Since 2001 here at greg.org, I've been blogging about the creative process—my own and those of people who interest me. That mostly involves filmmaking, art, writing, research, and the making thereof.

Many thanks to the Creative Capital | Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Program for supporting greg.org that time.
