that i've been a bit dormant here! between shooting -- as much as usual, which includes going out of town -- and dealing with everyday bullshit ... i've been moving.
the light at the end of the tunnel is brighter and brighter every day. better be ... i have until next thursday.
my girlfriend AKA il mio vitello ... she wrangled a fucking couch ... and a fucking queen-size bed with me. i was truthfully amazed.
the rug looks amazing in the living room.
it's all coming together.
my new shooting space -- replete with beautiful light and hardwood floors (real fucking ones, not that bullshit put over concrete) is just beckoning me to shoot ... but ... alas ... i have shit to do.
like hang out with maroon 5 all day and night yesterday.
i was asked, "what's on your ipod right now?"
"wincing the night away."
"i love the shins."
"um ... so do i."
"but you know what?"
"i think it was spin or something they said, 'we hate maroon 5.' but i love them anyway."
frankly, i was surprised that a group like the shins would say that about another group.
thought it was funny anyway.
thought ups would be here today ... as i drove back extremely fast ... to pick up the newest firmware M8 pro-pool loaner.
i have a project -- actually, a few -- in mind for her. this time with IR cut-off filters.
wanna give her a spin again.
ya' know ... after the move.
so many interesting things ... moving ... new neighborhood ... the phantom dog-shit-leaving-dog-owner ... kids getting stoned in cars late at night ...
the drunk guy on this the steps on one of our shortcuts.
but ... i'm ten minutes from shoots.
and ... driving a manual with a competition clutch (i know, stupid) ... sucks sometimes.
i can't be on a canyon scaring the shit out of myself all the fucking time.
ah ... feels nice to just sit ... somewhere other than a car.
would rather be sitting in the new pad ... but ... well ... soon ...
hung out with Scott
last night ... he's friends with Adam ...
if you haven't checked out scott's work ... you should.
okay ... i gotta go friggin' eat.
and pack some more.
again, sorry for the inactivity, the lack of dd-picking ... i just don't have the time at present.
i do check in, though, once in a while!
hope this finds you all very well ... even the photo-manipulators!
cheers from somewhere between suburbian-l.a. and l.a.-proper!
p.s., i was supposed to mention Ryan's
journal to prove that hollywood doesn't hate the troops. seriously, though, it's not that we hate the troops. au contraire. we hope the best for the troops. but ... we know they are doing a shitty-ass job at the behest of some shitty-ass u.s. foreign policy. DD SUGGESTION REQUIREMENTS
