*facepalm* Don’t leave a paper trail if you’re an asshole.

You know, one thing I actually give my Dad credit for is my interest in deconstructing people’s bullshit. Got to see him do it in court a few times, it was really pretty cool.

ANYWAY…
Like I said, I had a talk with Josh. Here’s how it went. It was quite hilarious.
It needs the proper music though.

Josh Carlascio
Been on set for the past couple of days – pulled a double on two separate shoots this week.
I’m just now getting some down time.

Joseph William Greene
Been trying to get you for quite some time now.

(He had been ducking me for about 2 weeks now.)

Josh Carlascio
What does finishing the flick on different terms mean?
Two days. Sleeping and set that’s been my life

Joseph William Greene
That means exactly what I means, I have plans, it’s getting cold and it needs to be done. Now.

Josh Carlascio
Okay. We’ve been stagnant for like a month.

(Yup)

Joseph William Greene
It’s involved me trying to set things up with you and you having better things to do
Then it never happens
And we repeat

Josh Carlascio
Working.
It’s called – working
I have three – count em / three fucking gigs.

Joseph William Greene
I understand what working is. Even if it’s something that involves 5 minutes if your time. Just gotta put that work in. I do.

(I just don’t bitch about it just marvel at the work that I do. It’s always worth the time)

Josh Carlascio
Okay. At last we talked – we were setting up to finish in October, correct?

Joseph William Greene
We’re finishing without you, we start again in a couple of days, lots of new content and the like

(Here we go)

Josh Carlascio
We talked – last Saturday.
No word
Nothing about shooting
I have not talked to anyone save for a couple errant things here and there – I moved. Remember that?
You have made no plans – sent anything that said – hey, thinking about shooting, you available?

(I don’t even have to explain how that goes every time)

Joseph William Greene
I remember all that. But what about when I just needed a scene from you. Before GenCon. And even after
That was well over a month ago

(Almost 2 months actually.)

Josh Carlascio
Exactly – the move – and then shit jut got busy

Joseph William Greene
That’s really all I wanted over the past month. Sense I knew you had those things.

Josh Carlascio
As is life
Plus the reason I’ve been soon all this work – is because I’m still fuckkng broke.
No $$
My phone is about to get shut off – I’m driving with no insurance And I owe a shitton in back rolls – plus school.
That does not excuse the scenes
You’re absoueltlu right / I fucked up on that

Joseph William Greene
That’s all of wanted for almost a couple of months now

Josh Carlascio
Okay so that I fucked up

Joseph William Greene
Pretty much, and what was the excuse for the lateness every single time we would do anything. Even when I went to Indiana or every time I go even. Late.

Josh Carlascio
Yeah back in June when I drive three fucking hours on my day off to meet you guys

Joseph William Greene
Yeah, that’s part of what we do, and it’s not three hours, come on now
Except that one time

(Keep in mind. Maple Park was an hour exactly from my house, and Josh’s house is 25 minutes from mine.)

Sunday
Josh Carlascio
Utica
Yeah

(We never went to Utica)

Joseph William Greene
But that was wayyyy the hell out there
And we did that once

Josh Carlascio
Most of the time I’m there
There
True

Joseph William Greene
Not once

Josh Carlascio
See this too is a low fucking blow on your part

(Victim)

Joseph William Greene
Explain please

Josh Carlascio
I thought we were friends sir
You fire me – on my wall

(We were friends until you started being a complete jackass and purposefully ignored me for weeks. Putting you on blast was the only way you got back to me and that shouldn’t have been an issue.)

Joseph William Greene
That I did. Only after calling you a couple of times and messaging you. Everyone knew this was coming already

Josh Carlascio
Really?

Joseph William Greene
Yeah, I decided days ago and I’ve been trying to tell you -___-

Josh Carlascio
No , you really haven’t

(Yes Josh, you were late to being fired as well.)

Joseph William Greene
Normally I hate doing that. Not my style, I don’t like it. But it sure got you to me fast.

Josh Carlascio
I just happens to turn my phone on
We were in a long break
Typically – what you’re supposed to do – is say listen / things aren’t going the way I’d like.
(This isn’t a typical situation.)

Joseph William Greene
But it’s days man, days, just a couple of seconds to let me know you’re alive.

Josh Carlascio
Fair enough- but my cousin hasn’t heard from me in four days.
And I talk to her almost every day

Joseph William Greene
I really haven’t had a good talk with you in quite some time. And it’s never really about business.

Josh Carlascio
This is not finished but I have to go.

Joseph William Greene
I think it’s quite finished.

TIME PASSES

Josh Carlascio
Yeah we’ll it really wasn’t

Joseph William Greene
Well continue. I got food.

(Grilled Cheese)

Josh Carlascio
But I saw you removed me from the group you fucking drama queen
There was no reason for this
(There was actually. I know you very well and I wanted to keep everyone else out of this unless they chose to be a part of it. Which they don’t. And by the way he was behaving just towards me that wouldn’t have ended well.)

Joseph William Greene
Dude, if you didn’t notice, you are just so so blind.

Josh Carlascio
You
Didn’t
Fucking
Say
Anything
Again

Joseph William Greene
Also, making sure I can’t change my mind

Josh Carlascio
Oh yeah – because the guy who came out edited your movie in six fucking days and then signed on again, you treat me like shit
(I wasn’t going to sign you on for this again. You came to me and said you wanted in.)

Joseph William Greene
Treat you like shit? You treated everyone on set like shit every time.

Josh Carlascio
No I didn’t
Who?
No one ever said anything to me
Who did I offend?

Joseph William Greene
Of course not, they certainly told me though.

Josh Carlascio
Julie?
Cody?

Joseph William Greene
Doesn’t matter who.

(It really doesn’t matter.)

Josh Carlascio
I want prof

Joseph William Greene
You really don’t.

Josh Carlascio
It does fuckin matter this isn’t high school

Joseph William Greene
It really does. Because this shit is gonna follow you.
I’ll say it again, it doesn’t matter. If you wanna know, you can ask around yourself and I’m sure they’ll let you know

Joseph William Greene
But don’t go after anyone else. If you’re mad at anyone it should be me, it was my decision. Just one everyone seems to agree with.

Josh Carlascio
I flat out do not believe you.

(Believe it)

No – you still haven’t given me a reason – so pull your head out of that swamp ass of yours and tell me what you’re firing me for. And is this how you treat your friends?

Joseph William Greene
I thought I already covered it.

Josh Carlascio
No.
Not one damn bit.

Joseph William Greene
Let’s see what you think. Why would I do something like fire you right now?

Josh Carlascio
I don’t know, because you always seemed like a decent and fair person to me.

Joseph William Greene
I still am, but I have to look out for what’s best for everyone

Josh Carlascio
And why was I bad? I never treated anyone bad – I filmed – setup shots – did my job. That you wanted me to do.
I might add.
I never walked around like I was better than you guys.
Not once.
I treated everyone fairly – and I am gonna ask everyone.

Joseph William Greene
Thing is, you were always late. Always. That’s a huge thing with everyone.
Please ask around if you must

Josh Carlascio
Lateness.
Okay. So that’s something that people could have spoken up.

(Yeah, I did)

Joseph William Greene
We shouldn’t have had to
Also, not getting the footage to me you said you would, those things alone are serious problems
You’re an hour sometimes two late to start. That’s insane.

Josh Carlascio
Well see – now we have a problem – because I still have the raw files – and I’m gonna go home and trash them all.

Joseph William Greene
I figured you would.
Which is why I have alternates. Sir.
I always assume the worst in people.
So there are no surprises

Josh Carlascio
See – all you ever had to say was – you know – your tardiness is an issue – I need you to plan more for shoot days.

Joseph William Greene
And scenes I know you didn’t finish. Even though you said you did…
And you’re a grown up, I show up on time

Josh Carlascio
I always texted you when I was late – and I hustled to make up the time

Joseph William Greene
Trying to make up the time doesn’t work. The fact I have to go back and reshoot things should tell you that.

Josh Carlascio
What things? Lewis?

Joseph William Greene
No, not that.

Josh Carlascio
What?
Lewis was the only thing I think I even had tht you didn’t

Joseph William Greene
We need to go back to Denise’s and we missed out on some ending stuff I wanted to do.

Josh Carlascio
That wasn’t because of me.
Denise’s was a reshoot anyway – we ran too long

Joseph William Greene
BECAUSE YOU WERE LATE SIR

Josh Carlascio
I got lost
You DOUCHEBAG
I can act like a big shot too
I told you that

Joseph William Greene
I’m talking about Denise’s. You were just old fashioned late on the other day.

Josh Carlascio
Yeah so am I

Joseph William Greene
I seem to remember Kristen calling you. You didn’t call us

Josh Carlascio
No I had texted you.
I remember that one

(Flat out lie. We was being a bitch at his house and Kristen had to sweet talk him out. Good job on that by the way Kristen.)

Here’s the thing – and the thing that I think I’m gonna break your legs for. You never ever post anything to my wall like the you fucking child.

(I’m afraid the fat white boy is gonna hurt me, for sure.)

You put me on blast for no fucking reason.

(It’s the only way you get back to anyone quickly. You have to be publicly embarrassed.)

Joseph William Greene
It certainly got us talking and quickly. No tip toeing around. That clearly doesn’t work on you. No matter how many times I threw times at you. Always late. You gotta be on time. It’s not just about me. It’s about all the other people you’re working with. I can’t hold them around all day.

It’s the repeated disregard for THEM that pisses me off so. This is a wonderful cast and there’s an amount of talent here that even surprises me. Great people inside and out. I get the very best out of them. I expect the best out of EVERYBODY. That includes myself and you.

(This)

Josh Carlascio
We haven’t shot for almost two months – and this problem – just somehow came up now?

Sunday
Joseph William Greene
I kept bringing it up, you were always supposedly busy whenever I tried to plan one thing or another.

Josh Carlascio
Yeah – been insanely busy. Which I think I’ve mentioned oh – 2 or maybe 200 times.
Again it’s the whole $$ thing

Joseph William Greene
But that’s not the issue, you know that. It’s your behavior.

(Because it is.)

Josh Carlascio
See if you we’re paying my bills you’d get to talk.

Mono non
Nononono
You don’t pay me
You are not a professional
You are an amateur – and with this so am I
We are both starting out at this end

(Gives you no right to be an asshole. And again, you volunteered. I didn’t exactly come rushing for your assistance. And a professional is defined by someone who gets paid for what they do. And I have yet to make a cent so that makes me an amateur by definition. But that doesn’t excuse anyone from giving it their best. Also, just about everyone else in this movie IS a professional so they at least deserve that respect.)

Joseph William Greene
Doesn’t mean we shouldn’t try and do things right.

Josh Carlascio
Okay – I will concede that fact – I will also concede that if people commit to a time – yeah – they should try to be there.

(This makes sense)

However – when thing do arise – such as with me having OCD when it comes to my gear – and checking to make sure I have everything – yes – but it is not nor has it ever Been about respect / I am insanely scatterbrained
I am trying to do 100 things at once
Which is no good

(We have the random OCD drop which is complete horseshit.. I’m not even gonna get into that… Willie?)

Joseph William Greene
No matter what, it’s pass or fail, and you just failed. I gave you more chances than I should have to redeem yourself and really that was a waste. You commit to these things. You have to strive for excellence. There was a lack of that.

(And that’s the last we’ve spoken actually.)
