ARGH! part 2

Why oh why do I have to cover things like this. All I can say is vote Kerry. The funny thing is that after all of the extra police and all of the secret service officers at the event, two protesters actually got into the rally and got Cheney all shook up. That just does not happen, these things are run tight as a drum and are by invite only. It was pretty funny. But, one of my friends that I work with got shoved around and elbowed in the ribs when he tried to interview one of the protesters after the rally. Not by security mind you, but by the republicans in attendance, because they didn't want his point of view aired. So much for the first amendment, somehow I think if they were the ones protesting a planned parenthood building, they would want to be heard and seen on T.V.

I'm ticked and I'm out,


The Vice President's visit it screwing up my whole day. I've been here for 12 hours and this day is just about as suckie as yesterday. The people I work with are asking for outrageous things. I want to go home.


Changes Abound

I haven't posted in almost a month. I haven't been slacking (much) I've just been trying to get used to my new schedule and all the funky stuff that has been going on. I now wake up at 3am and I'm usually at work until noon, but about three days out of the week I work until 7pm.

Today Vice President Cheney is coming to town and we are covering it big time, I 'll be here until 8pm tonight. Let's just hope all goes smooth. This new gig is kinda stressing me out with all the added responsibility, I find myself turning into a prick and I don't like it, so I gotta watch out and try not to make anymore people cry. Well maybe some of them deserve to cry.

I'm off, have to do the work thing.

Victorious Day!

The SCA guy didn't kill me, and work went very well. Not bad.

I figured out how to edit the PSAs that were giving me so much trouble yesterday. It took about another hour, but once I got into actually editing all 10 of them I got it all done in about two hours. All in all I'm glad work is over for now. I don't have to go back until Wednesday and that suits me just fine.

I've just sitting around watching Adult Swim, Get Shorty, and Porn Star. Now I'm switching between Kids in the Hall on DVD (my buddy Chandra gave it to me for my 30th birthday) and BASEketball. I could watch BASEketball every day of my life until I die and it will always be funny. Matt and Trey just rock.
Just another lazy Sunday. I'm out.

Second Blog entry no better that the first.

Well Still trying to figure out this blog thing. Not going so well, but I'll just keep typing. Work could have been better, It could have been worse. The maddening thing today was that I spent 2 hours trying to edit on the linear editing system (It's a way of editing that that is about 15 years out of date, so if I want to go back in time and get a job as an editor I'm all set) but I couldn't get the darn AMPEX switcher to clip out the key. The main problem is that when I was trained on it I got two days of "loose" training from a guy who just didn't give a rip about his job, so I only know about a fourth of what that system can do. Every time I try to ask the other guy who also edited on it in the past for help, he just kinda kinda mutters something and doesn't bother to actually show me what he's talking about. So I always end up figuring it out myself through a long trial and error process. I'll take another stab at it tomorrow.

Here's something I've been thinking about lately. The last time I saw this guy, he told me was going to L.A. to become an actor. And one of the last times I saw this guy, he was drunk and high on my couch watching Buffalo '66, and he kept telling me he was going to go to L.A., and find Christina Ricci and make her his girlfriend. They're broken up now, but I'll be darned if he didn't do it. Plus I saw him on an episode of 24 two seasons ago. So I think I'm just going to start telling everyone that I'm going to L.A. to become a famous writer slash director, and see what happens.

Well Until then back to work tomorrow on the 4th of July. I hope no one I work with tries to kill me with a broad sword tomorrow (long Story).

I just watched the season finale of "24" and it rocked! I thought Chase was going to die though. It pisses me off that the new season is not going to air until January. ABC and Fox think that they are HBO all of a Sudden. Fresh episodes (Damn You WB for that term) every week are cool and all, but I have been pre-programmed from an early age what broadcast TV is supposed to be. I want my season premiers in the fall.

Is it just me or is the WB's "Superstar USA" The Most deliciously evil program that has ever been on TV. Of course I was a huge fan of "The Joe Schmoe Show" and "My Big Fat Obnoxious Fiance'".

Well let's try this again later.

I'm out.

First Try

Oh god here it goes this is my first post. I really have nothing to say right now, just getting started. I'm sure after I leave work I'll have plenty to write, especially the way things have been going on the weekends.

I have no business creating a blog...but here I am. I'm at a what do you call it....I don't know never mind.

I just watched David Cross's let America laugh last night. That was pretty funny.

Oh man I'm just gonna go home and watch the Invader Zim DVD and try again later.
