I think shooter's, as with writer's block, is just a problem with motivation. Ideas come, but are dismissed with little thought. Squelched for being unoriginal, too simplistic or any other number of lame excuses artists and creative types come up with for not doing the work the love. We blame muses, society, the man, anything to cover our lack of motivation. Any excuse not to take the simple, unoriginal idea and turn it into something simple but original, or fail trying.... Failure, the greatest excuse of all. The main reason not to try at all....

The American Theatre, in 1908 and declined over the years to the imfamous Lee Adult Theatre, and X-Rated right of passage for the young man of Hampton and Phoebus VA, in the 70's and early 80's. The picture above shows the the revived New American Theatre of the late 80's. A Movie Theatre/Restaurant, that hosted live bands on weekend nights. I was a frequent guest of the New America Theatre as both a customer and a musician. The building has now been restored resemble its original 1908 incarnation and has reverted back to the original American Theatre name.
