About to start JCVD. And glass of wine #3…
I want to buy movies on Blu-Ray. Really I do. At least… until I’m in the store. 3rd time in a row I’ve walked out of Best Buy empty handed

Oh. Someone may have drowned by the dam. News camera woman was arrested too. http://bit.ly/vS9fO
Knowing was really good. Fire during plane crash scene was mixed - some looked great, some was as 2D as Nicolas Cage. Amazing sequence tho.
Saw “Knowing” today. Anyone (FIlm Dojo) who thinks Proyas came down on one side of the random vs. determinism debate saw a different movie.

Police helicopter is circling the park right by my house. Sirens are going now too. WTF is going on in my little hick town?
Greenscreen and timelapse are now the correct spellings. No more space or hyphen. Done. (What to do for the rest of my day?)
Recording timelapse of student’s photo shoot for Red Bull competition. HVX200 with 2x32GB P2 cards @ 4fps can go for ~10 hours. Love it.
Heading to work on my day off to sub. Will do my best to deflect questions with tangential rants and shiny objects.
The Boy watched The Princess Bride today. Is now running around shouting, “in conceit bubble!”
CT scan done, Boy’s brains are intact. Home again, wine still awaits in glass, but energy gone.
The Boy is doing better, partly due to CN on ER’s TV. This ER just opened 2 weeks ago. How do all of the crazies know about it aleady?
Movie was cued, wine was poured, The Boy ran, slipped & cracked his head. Concussion symptoms (vomitting & sleepiness) ensued. ER now…
Oh. My camera actually can wireless trigger my flash unit (that I’ve owned for 3 years)? Let’s hear it for reading the manual. Huh. Zah.
My (almost) 3 year old son can make himself burp on command. I couldn’t do that until 5th grade (taught by a girl (long story)). /proud dad
motion09 = nice lineup: Mark Coleran (über UI designer), Jamie Caliri (United stop motion TVCs) & Mike Goedecke (belief). Move it to Chicago
Watching Red Dwarf: Back to Earth (the making of). Looks like great fun. Keeping an eye out for a VFX supe…
Hypothesis: A vast majority of people don’t care about DVD special features. Completely non-scientific evidence: They’re not widely pirated.
Bootlegging a movie = “free.” Cost = Time (minor) + bandwidth (unlimited) + storage (temp) + risk. Are bonus features not worth stealing?

Still laughing at how @LifeZero took the fxphd 0-week video to PG-13 at ~21 minutes in. IND201 - Maximizing F-bombs on a Low Budget
Nikon’s own page for the D5000 apparently doesn’t exist yet. Way to time that press release. http://tinyurl.com/8uyweb
This piracy topic was discussed in my Media Delivery Systems class last week. Also digital movie downloads and death(?) of optical media.

Done Twitter whoring (twhoring?) for now.
Nice car pulls up next door. 7-year-old neighbor girl says, “Not him again. He comes every day and takes all our money.”
I grew up on a farm, so I’m not used to neighbors. Trying to mind my own business, but things just keep getting weirder.
What, if he were a real man he would have kept shooting, especially at your police force?
CNN - Police chief on NY gunman: “He must have been a coward… He took his own life.” Seems an odd and unhelpful thing to say.
I am only finding minor comfort in the fact that whatever explosions I’m hearing are way too loud to be gunshots.
I’m 2 blocks from the park. Park district is shooting off 1 firework every 5 or 10 minutes as part of an Easter egg hunt… at 10am… WTF.
How did I not know the Dave McKean was on the Twitter?
Ok, I get that this is not the point of all the hubbub, but I’d actually *like* to see an incomplete workprint of Wolverine as a DVD/BD xtra
I don’t really need a 3rd Drobo, but I would like a Lensbaby Composer for the Letus35 + HVX200.
Thanks for the support, all. Doc said Sunday might be worst, which freaks me— I’ve got new classes Monday w/ basically 9 hrs of lecture…
Wisdom teeth are fucking stupid.
Just had all 4 wisdom teeth pulled this morning. Jaw is un-numbing slowly revealing a dull but growing pain. Didn’t puke from anaestetic FTW
