Football, beer, and...oh, yeah, movie stuff

Boy, do I love watching a good game on the tube while enjoying an ice cold brewski! Damn, but there ain't NUTHIN' like the playoffs!

Not that I've just been sitting around all day being worthless or anything...I'm always either writing or tinkering or planning something to do with filmmaking. For instance, I've just finished testing an old computer that I'm going to loan to Ant so he has something to compose upon. This might seem generous on the surface, but trust me, it's complete selfishness on my part. He just gave me 10 pages of rewrites, and I'll be fucked if I'm going to type all that crap into the computer myself! Trust me, it's easier to throw together a PC out of old parts than it is for me to do all that typing.

So now he can experience the joy of typing. I'm sure he'll be thrilled.

Also, I bought a dry erase board for $1.99 that I'm going to use as a production slate. And I dug out a bunch of audio and video patch cables that I'm sure will be useful at some point.

I just don't want anyone to think all I'm doing today is sitting on my ass, drinking Budweisers and watching NFL football...

...but for Christ's sake, what's going on with the Packers? (losing to Minnesota 17-zip with 3:20 left in the 1st qtr...hope they can turn it around. And how 'bout dem Jets last night?)

Hey Josh, yeah we're going to be looking for actors at some point soon, but we're in Connecticut, so unless you're in the area I don't know if it'll work out. Be sure to check websites that deal with indie filmmaking, because there's often local groups that you can contact. For instance, www.indieclub.com has free membership, and there's a member's group in just about every state. Good luck!
