Rude Awakening

This morning, right now, at 7 am, I’m listening to some driver honk his horn again and again and again and again. I think he’s waiting on the street to pick up someone. Let me say this as calmly and as politely as possible: SHUT THE F*CK UP!!! I cannot stand car horns. Especially those that go on and on and on. They are rude, they are angry, and they are annoying as all hell and damnation incarnate. SHUT THE G*DD*MN M*THERF*CK UP! There. I feel a little better. But if I ever see that son of a bitch honking, you can be d*mn sure I’m going to go over there and tell him to be quiet.

Doobie’s Signature

I got an autograph from Doobie Chae, one of my 546 Sound students. At least, I think it’s his signature. He told me it is, but it could be a swear word for all I know.

A Sad Day for Us All

Americans have spoken. And besides the fact that Bush is tanking the economy, besides the fact that a Supreme Court Chief Justice may need to be replaced soon and basic women’s rights are at stake, besides the fact that untold thousands of people have been killed, besides the fact that education is slipping away, the American people, still paralyzed with fear and insecurity from the attack, voted for their security blanket, George W. Bush. He’s not the smartest blanket; heck, he says things like “subliminible,” and when he’s not reading off a script he sounds like just some Texan bully who stumbles and stutters when he speaks.

A Couple Good Ones

Jimmy Two-Shoes Durante was brought in for questioning yesterday for allegedly beating a cow to death with a small ceramic statue. This may be the first case in mafia history involving a knick knack patty whack. A young driver gets pulled over for speeding. The cop steps up to the car and the driver rolls down his window. The cop says, “I’ve been waiting for you all day,” to which the driver replies, “Sorry officer, I got here as fast as I could.” A blonde goes to the laundromat to wash her favorite sweatshirt.

The Village: Shyamalan Shows Signs of Unbreakable Filmic Sixth Sense

M. Night’s most consistent film yet, it adriotly plays with our expectations and preconceptions. And if the technical aspect of the theatergoing experience is up to snuff you might actually get to fully enjoy the movie. (…If the projector’s bulb evenly lights the screen, and remains consistently bright, and the film doesn’t pulsate in & out of focus in the third reel, and the right and right surround speakers are turned up, and the speakers are of decent quality, and the noise of the projector is sufficiently muffled.)

My Future of Filmmaking

“As a student just starting out in this field I feel it is my duty to become fluent in both ‘halves’ of the motion picture business, picture and sound, in order to keep my options open; for as I grow older and more experienced and gain a place of stature in the industry I don’t know which my aging body will make me first: blind or deaf.”

You Can Go Home Again

Well I’m back in Denver for the summer. Have been for a while now, just too lazy (honestly) to write anything in this blog…. which I doubt people actually read anyway. I’m looking for production work and so far it’s a no-go. There appear to be few opportunities for production students like myself in the Denver area. But I have decided that while I may not be working I can still be working on other things. For example, writing, researching, getting into shape (heh, yeah, right), and visiting family are all viable alternatives.
