While in the process of writing my memoir, I got in the mood for some other writing as well. Anyone like this short story? --- Kill an Aspie Once in the land of Bergum, the happiest place in the world, people lived in perfect harmony without anything ever troubling them. Life in Bergum had always be...

Yep, it's only considered a draft before studios work on it. I'm looking to get it sent to a studio. I've not studied much theory apart from reading a couple of other scripts, but the script isn't that heavily focused on the internal world of autism, it's fairly visible in people's actions. What I h...

I just finished writing a 130-page screenplay detailing me and my family growing up. Now I'm facing the task of trying to get some studio to pick it up, and I'm completely new to this industry. To be frank, I mostly wrote this screenplay in the hope that I'd be able to get out of the life I have her...

Perhaps this movie can inspire you: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1200259/ - The man who lives with bears. He lives half the year in a cabin in Alaska with bears. I found it one of the most fascinating documentaries I've ever watched. You can easily find the movie on torrent sites.

Hmm, making more audience-friendly documentaries and movies was a good idea. The one I made was a rather confrontational documentary about Sweden. I had hoped rightwingers would react to it the same way leftwingers reacted to Michael Moore's movies, but so far it hasn't happened.

in trying to accomplish anything. I recently finished making a political documentary and thought it would have an impact if I just made it good enough. Now it seems it won't be the hit I had hoped for, and I mostly just face criticism when advertising it. I'm living outside my society, Sweden, seemi...

I considered myself employable at the start of my adult life, though at that time, family life was very turbulent with two broke, unemployed and alchoholized parents, and I didn't get any help getting a job, so it wasn't long before I got stressed out from trying and gradually slumped into apathy. I...

I feel I definitely match both AS and a schizoid personality myself. I think my schizoidness has come about later in life, while I was born with AS of course.

I think several factors can contribute to make an AS person adopt an LGBT identity: * Harder to interact with the opposite sex. A male might not know how to attract a female, and a female might be uncomfortable with the typical male attention. By contrast, in an LGBT setting, I suppose anything goes...

I've found out on the Internet, yesterday that the prick was banned from the UK. Kind of funny, he ran that story for three weeks straight on his radio show, how he had been victimized and that the US government should intervene on his behalf. He even compared himself to Jesus because of it, here's...

I've got a playlist up on Youtube as well, where the movie is divided into 25 clips. I wish Google video hadn't turned off the upload ability, so I could put it up full-length there. Sadly I've not found any free services where you can host unlimited length movies, only ones you pay for.

I'd sue the government here too, for deciding I'm completely mentally incompetent and attempting to put me into a program for autistics at a Rainman level. It was so traumatic going through, this clash between my perception of myself, and theirs. I didn't even ask for care or fail in any way of func...

Thanks for compliment. I'm hoping it will take off and become an Internet hit, but so far it looks like only 500 people have downloaded it.. Then again, I only released it as late as 9 days ago. I'm hoping I'll be able to start a media career or something from making it, because things that have hap...

My personal opinion is that government involvement only messes people up and leads them into disability roles. Social services should stay out of the lives of people so they understand it's their own job learning to take care of themselves. In Sweden, the government spends enormous amounts of money ...
