Another night, another copter

You'd think I lived in Crooklyn , South Central , or the barrio . Nope. Good old Los Angeles, across the street from the exorbitant Hancock Park, one of the wealthiest neighborhoods in CA, across the street from Paramount pictures. Well once again, tonight there is some sort of manhunt going on and the LAPD helicopters, horns, and tires, and crashes haven't stopped for an hour. I love LA! (We Love it!) And my downstairs neighbors are fighting. And I have a 6:15am call time (5.5 hours from now). Joy. Wait...I think they've gone away. Off to sleep. Just picture this chopper at night and a beaming light circling your neighbors outside your bedroom, and that's me! See you soon...I will give you a report of my experience on set shooting a 35mm short in the desert, ocean, and office. Til then,

Funny R. Kelly

I forgot to add my favorite video of late. R. Kelly - Behind the Scenes of "Real Talk" on Burning Clothes, drama, messed up hair, mama's phone calls, punching the cameramen...must be R. Kelly . Watch, learn and enjoy the best singing unknowing comedian of our time. Real Talk.

My neighborhood is Noisy!

Here it is Wednesday night around 11pm and it sounds like Armageddon outside my apartment. I have to pause my DVD several times just to be able to hear it. I live across the street from Paramount, in Hollywood CA and between the honking, trucks, children, ice cream trucks, ice cream carriers with bells, dogs, musician neighbors, helicopters, police sirens, ambulance sirens, tour buses, construction workers, motorcycles, noisy cars and our thin walls with no insolation whatsoever it's amazing anyone gets any rest around here. I swear the only quiet hours are between 4-6am. The rest of the day/night forget about it. I don't think there is any solution, I just had to rant a minute. Wait, I think there is a quiet gap. I'm running off to sleep now.

Transformers 2: Revenge of the Megatron

Megatron is no sissy. This is the second part of a Transformers sequel parody. The first can be seen on my YouTube page here. The whole concept came to me after I saw the film Transformers and thought they really took themselves incredibly seriously with their dialogue taken straight from a cartoon. So I wanted to satire the utter and complete silliness of alien robots on earth mixed with the lowest possible technology for these things. The result is what you see. More to come with interviews and behind the scenes footage.

Welcome to the sweaty season

So it's officially summer and it has gotten freaking hot. I'm a white boy from MN and whenever it gets like this my body has to re-check itself into rehab. I have to cover my skin with clothing, wear 50+ sun screen and not be in direct sun for more than 10 minutes. I chase the shade and it makes things awkward if I'm around other people who love the sun and I won't walk in sunny areas. I look like Jack Nicholson from "As Good As It Gets" . Otherwise my face will end up looking like this: What makes matters worse is that I have no A.C. outside my bedroom and I live on the second floor of a very bright apartment. On top of that my office where I work on my computer is like a tiny oven, and after about 2 minutes I start sweating like Shaq on the free throw line. So another long hot summer is upon us and the only vacation I have planned is to go to my uncle's wedding on August 4 in North Carolina where it is even hotter and it's hum

My entry to the Watchmen contest directed by Zack Snyder. Watchmen is based on the acclaimed popular graphic novel by Alan Moore & Dave Gibbons. . The contest requires you to make a commercial for a specific product from VEIDT ENTERPRISES which is a fictional company in the story. Also note that the story is largely set in 1985. Check mine out and enjoy.
