Spent last week in the middle of the CT woods working an odd sort of movie. very boring, I made some awesome stilts out of some 2x3s, pipe clamps, and some cloth. got up to about 4 feet before the producers decided I was a liability. about to head back up for another week. what does one do between two weeks without phones and internet? A: watch ace ventura: pet detective and blog about it!!!!
well, that was it. I'll miss you little blog. see you in a week.

OMG Yo Soy Totally Flying to Atlanta Not Moving This Weekend
UF Tasering I am sure that you guys have seen/heard about the University of Florida student who was tasered during a John Kerry speech at his school. But I thought I would post the link anyway. According to the CNN article, Kerry stated that, "I was not aware that a taser was used until after I left the building." I thought I should juxtapose that statement by one made by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.: The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy. The true neighbor will risk his position, his prestige and even his life for the welfare of others.

K-S just tells me that she dreamed we went to Barcelona. She said it looked like some mixture of Vienna and Bogotá, which she thinks is probably accurate. Funny, because I just scratched out something in my new journal about wanting to see it as well. Great timing, K-S's dreams.
A couple months ago I did a music video and we ended up shooting for many many hours. I was in charge of all the lighting effects on a really crappy old board that wasn't very easily programmable. small 15 character display, not a full screen. poop. so anyway, imagine me, late at night, bang on a lighting cues while falling asleep to this music.
I hate tech support... well, if it was a kitten, I'd like it... but I hate tech support. and I thought apple would be better... but no. starting to really hate applecare.
