We’re no wild party people, but I am still recovering from the lack of sleep and sensory onslaught of hanging out in Vegas for a few days. The coolest part of the whole thing was seeing my mom give her presentation at WPPI in front of 200-300 people. These people were taking notes. I’m not […]
…and there we’ll be. Going to the WPPI convention? Interested in Marilyn Sholin‘s talk Tuesday night? Drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org. If there’s easy access and power, I’ll blog what I can from the convention.
Maybe I shouldn’t have been so flippant in recalling my music video days yesterday. I ended up spending the copious majority of 15 hours behind the bar yesterday. I don’t have too much green dye on my hands though, so that’s a plus. And yes, the first phone call of the day was the ubiquitous […]
Jerry Brown, Oakland Mayor and my favorite blogging politician, is teaching me a bunch of Bay Area urban slang. I feel so nineteen-ninety-now when I think of everything I’ve missed being this far away from the hip-hop game. The last music video I ever worked on was Fabolous’ first big hit. So Mayor Brown’s rant […]
Once again, I will be behind the bar today at Rosie McCann’s in Santa Cruz serving all the amateurs wanna-be Irishmen fine citizens of this town and its outlying areas. Have fun, don’t drive drunk, and try not to speak with a brogue if you’re not Irish. Yes, we serve Corned Beef and Cabbage. We […]
Stuck in my head = Spirit of the Radio by Rush (trust me, you know the song: the words of the prophets profits are written on the studio walls) as covered by Sound of Urchin with Jack Black not resisting the urge to join them on stage. The Urchin in question is a band that […]
On a personal note, a movie I gave about seven weeks of my life to as a Dolly Grip has opened in the usual “selected cities” and is getting great reviews. Off The Map was lots of fun to work on, and good work. Campbell Scott directed, Juan Ruiz-Anchia was the director of photography (and […]
Precious little new content popping up here, I know, but (excuse coming) I have been working on setting up my mom’s blog… She’ll be speaking at WPPI next week, and I’ll be working the merch table in the back of the Las Vegas Ballroom at Bally’s Hotel and Casino Tuesday March 22nd. Meanwhile, I’m thumping […]
Here’s what we need to truly democratize information:
1. Free broadband internet access in the poorest parts of the country/world.
2. Inexpensive/subsidized/donated/free computers and a tiny bit of training for the same
poorest parts of the country/world.
Spending the afternoon, as usual, at the library in full-on-study/clearly-not-addicted-to-my-feeds-via-bloglines mode. I usually glance around at what people are reading/studying/clearly-not-studying around me, and the glaring amusements today = a girl with her highlighter out and textbook open, unabashedly watching a full episode of Smallville on her laptop + the guy about 4 feet away from […]
