A Room with a Bilge

Sink or swim.The mortgage crisis be damned. I just received a press release that offered ?a taste of the many real estate options available to you, the multiple-home owner.? The editor of LuxuryLife newsletter is pimping The World, a 12 deck ship replete with 165 private residence options, seven restaurants, a spa, golf (using biodegradable golf balls when one slices into the sea), a theater, casinos and night clubs. Oh, and there’s a jewelry shop when one gets a hankering for diamonds while in the middle of the Pacific. The best part of the release, however, is the name of the company proffering this lux-life meets Waterworld condo complex ? ResidenSea. Seriously, a pun? One would think the boat’s backers could have hired a more creative marketing team. One wonders what they would call those landlocked in foreclosed homes ? lost at bankruptsea? Whatever floats your boat.

I explore the creative life as a storyteller, artist, and entrepreneur. I’m the writer-director of Pill Head and the forthcoming feature film Wolf Story. I’m also the author, most recently, of the novel Quantum Deadline, and am active in media (Bohemian, Pacific Sun). Learn how I went from small-town newspaperman to a feature film director here.
