At Christmas time, people lambaste with presents persons in their lives, pampering them with the pleasurable material items of luminous luxury like massive televisions and ecologically questionable, possibly zany in masking body odors perfumes. Against spending money on presents, I am not. Sorting through my loot makes me happy in my good, ringing in the New Year with good spirits, mood. Nothing makes my poor autistic self come towards more security than lots of warm positioning of natural family coming together at the dinner table.
Writing this blog, I also want to thank all the many people who went to see our movie and presentations this past year. Owing all of you presents is not something I can do but it is more than possible for me like the people playing on poorly heard by mainstream America NPR stations, to articulate words from the movement of typers towards the universal mapping over of little lots of prejudice with potentially widening of thinking of people with minimal speech, highways of powerful ideas of inclusion and movies as game-changing, looking to move minds and not pocketbooks, performances of intelligence and not looks.
Larry, peace and good serious will for the world in the next year.

The timing of our Tampa, Florida show times this week is like making strawberry shortcake on Independence Day. Potentially organizing my packing will include shorts and a baggy, more open to massive waistlines perforated with finely sown on insignia labels of minor sports star designers, bathing suits. Lapping only Tracy and I on totally domesticated for tourists’ beach will be Harvey and Pascal in their originally made for Olympians running shorts.
Powers of suggestion on TV lead us to living our movie star lives out under the moon light except when we are pleased to sleep in our own beds back in Vermont. There the topnotch philosophy of including Larry and Tracy in every major newspaper except Fox news rags gives us the confidence to name ourselves movie, People magazine still needs to key a story on, stars.
Oprah Winfrey, of course, looking always for seriously earthshaking stories to move people’s emotions, pivoting on opinions about social issues, is really more used to jabberers both on her show and in her book club but we can pop corks of marvelously like champagne, bottled up for years but now like a dormant volcano exploding into the skies, ideas to get her attention.
Move over talk show hosts. We are ready for prime time.

Kind of like making an appointment, entirely up to three other people’s schedules, areas time zoned differently to travel to, highly subject to peaceful flying weather, our touring for the movie notes a life of leisurely eating at meaty fine restaurants while typing frenetically at question and answer post-movie panels. Looking at this situation, I see lots of production in doing this movie star work, mostly because it’s me totally pressing out my intelligent thoughts onto potentially mown down minds of movie goers.
My quite satisfying life looks more like your anyone-looking-for-an- autograph-from, money-grows-on-trees-for, celebrity. I might not lead thinking man’s best looks list (nothing beats a good-looking kind of muscle bound mostly hairy headed man) and maybe I stay rooted in the traditions of old, mighty addicted to maple syrup, better openings inside their land to live a calm life, Vermonters. Now with taking our film on the road, I can role play too the personality of Will Ferrell-like jokester, looking at old attitudes and feelings about disability anchored in places of mostly retro-styled movies and poking fun at people’s ideas while leaving off, at the door steps of their imaginations, baskets of, voiced with letters, insights.
Your wanting to get out in the sun now should take over. Boredom reading profoundly written blogs otherwise will set in.

Looking important to do on this coming Memorial Day is placing lots of letters of jam-packed with appreciation with the people in the military operating primarily in places of protracted conflict. The popularity of politicians is often more based on leaving a land putting our troops in positions of taking great risks to apply peacekeeping maneuvers to mold public policies on operations in war-torn countries into hopes for movements of change, opening doors to democracy, powered by big business production.
Let the monsoons of my political rants clear out now and let me say I am a proud American, pleasing moviemaking goers out of Netflix viewers with meaningful ideas about older than stories in plenty of religious texts intelligence and opinions, matter more than picking food choices, communication. I pole on the liberal look side of politics. I make paintings on the purely intuitional process of doing art. I live in the kindest to environment state. I need people to point to my autism less and more to my abilities.
All of this leaves me properly typed out and I hope people everywhere kick up their heels over the long weekend and include much fun moving to the beat of music from the Wretches and Jabberers soundtrack.

Watching all the publicity we let be situated on our bald heads, I need to say a big thank you to all of the people who have participated in luminating with brighter than movie theater lights the promotion of the fine movie Tracy and I star in.
Mostly minor in billing but very major in their support of our communication, Pascal and Harvey led promotional work not with their picture perfect hair cuts but by their movements of touch and verbal encouragement, pushing us to make our messages clear and pithy. I mall walk on the keyboard and Tracy looks amused by my pratfalls of missed keys. Perfect accuracy mostly escapes me, kind of like President Bush trying to remember the names of foreigners. Positively leading me to move past my mistakes to print out my real thoughts, Pascal cons me into believing in my competence, opening my mind onto a place where autism moves underground and intelligence rules.
Tracy steps like marching band drummer on a large flat screen-like keyboard, looking to make his beat more productive for protest-like communication. Harvey lets primarily braking movement support lock into Tracy’s planning to change the planet mission, anchoring thought to ordered with powerful purpose typed actions.
Potentially, I have wandered off my original topic of this blog but for all of you, as good guy rooting for fans, I may indulge my perusing my crowded mind for something to entertain you.

Your most memorable moments are those of popular, loudly linked to movie star notoriety, applause, recognition from your peers for the work that you have done to promote presumption of competence and inclusion of people with labels of disability, bowing out for the emergence of abilities to light fires of planes to carry away old attitudes and open up new progressive paths to a world of acceptance of people of fit minds and not always sound bodies.
My pal, Tracy and I received the Theresa Wood Citizenship Award at the largest lunch line, potentially most significant inroading into politics of disability, conference in maple syrup country. It was picture perfect moment for us, totally making us dramatically, in opinion of People magazine movie critics, the leading contenders for the Oscars with Pascal and Harvey as Green Mountain Self-Advocates “Allies of the Year” potential dark horses for supporting actors.
May Larry and Tracy live up to the spirit of this great award.

I am moved to wring the necks of expert news commentators who let their mouths run for lengthy, pleasing to get time on Oprah-like talk shows for Donald Trump crowd, lectures on the president’s birth certificate and its meaningfulness for our national security. Other operating principles of good opportune news reporting would say papers should focus on movie debuts of Tracy and Larry, holdovers from the old institutional ways of managing people of another kind of intelligence that did not show itself until situations were provided for it to be expressed through supported typing.
Telling our story through our movie is important now like issuing inspirational prayers for world peace. Popular people post their thoughts on smatterings of topics about travel and food on Facebook. It is the same for Tracy and I except we differ in our passion for letters rather than scandal to open the doors of public attention. We know we can’t operate like idiotic over-hysterical news, pleading to the masses, performance artists. Like manic people, they veer off into patterns of nightly news outside the bounds of truth. I am stepping out very insecurely on the limb of opinionated writing here but I don’t only want to be occupied by minor trivial, movie star issues. So just bear with me as I learn to move out on the patchwork quilt of public expression of one’s ideas.

Maps spirited in their lines and shaped by their perspectives of landscapes point out where people must move to navigate for going on trips, giving tours to people like movie stars, and having great world adventures to parts unknown. Tracy and I are trying to draw maps of language and letters to show people new ways of traveling in the land of autism and limited speech.
Operating on people’s openness to meeting us in cities around the country, liking lots of local meals with native beer, we go out and spread our message of mass appeal to Apple iPad-oriented moviegoers. Part of the news your memory needs to remember is our presence like Vermont springs is very short. (We have serious winters.) So let’s look out and key in on our future movie showings, take a friend, and buy them a large popcorn.

Acting like tour guide extraordinaire, Pat Edwards got us positioned on podiums of beautifully, shiny, light wood in the theatrical-release-ready rooms of spectacularly new building of education at Ashland University. We had highly all-American meals and met many lovely people.
In planing back to Burlington but left in Cleveland, I had another Oscar-winning meltdown. Finding time in the Newark airport to apply kind words to giving friend, Tracy, like a calm Buddhist monk, gold medal for Olympian patience. Glomming onto my loud spouting-off-about-airplane-delay in Cleveland, Harvey and Pascal, a massive note of appreciation for spotting a nice Sheraton hotel. Collecting my anxiety in a soft, bringing to senses, bed, I am giving much introspection on the topic of how one manages uncertainty in one’s life. Occupying my consciousness, really in an all-consuming way, was my mental-age-of-a-little-boy, motions of a spoiled brat, temper tantrum, someone get a leash to tie me up with about, lost day of travel.
Oddly enough, this, as a moment of educating the public about autism, we showed our movie trailer to fellow travelers in the airport, mostly ignorant about my and Tracy’s mission but watching and taking us seriously. I am grateful to all people looking to open their thinking. Poorly though I act sometimes, I lop off more limbs of ignorance by letting my typing finger do the picking of intelligent thought from my mind and putting it out on screens to show the Larry of movie star-like worthiness.

I totally want to lead a fulfilling life and opening this door widely has been my movie life. Pointed high on my horizon now is a vision over these posters of Wretches & Jabberers which kindles in me a strong desire to soar and not just float through life. Many people of my living-in-the-community-after-the-institution status can create useful community kinds of existences for ourselves, letting the patterns of leisuring and recreating looked on as meaningful forms of activity for us by Special Olympian-oriented programmers push us along like logs in a stream heading keeping on a downward path to the lumberyard.
I like to level pins at the bowling alley like anyone else but I also need to nudge myself in the direction of participating in more intellectually demanding activities, like movie star appearances on public TV, progressive-in-their-politics, talk shows. Working on this blog is a less public form of this path to fulfilling ones potential in living a powerfully satisfying life so others outside of your ivory tower of disability will move into your neighborhood of intelligence and mostly off beat humor.
Ok now to the coffee shop for a more-than-satisfactory cup of joe.
