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was that I spent 2 hours trying to edit on the linear editing system (It's a way of editing that that is about 15 years out of date, so if I want to go back in time and get a job as an editor I'm all set) but I couldn't get the darn AMPEX switcher to clip out the key.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.
