Ok. Starting to feel better about things. I’ve got an idea to pitch to the Staircase about a run of four improv shows called Crazy 8’s. I’ve been working on the details of this new format and will explain it when I’ve got it figured out entirely. I guess the cancellation of our existing shows has given me a chance to try on the producer’s hat, so that’s what I’m going to do.
I’ve also been buying stuff. Lots of stuff. 😛 I bought a new computer chair because the old one was slowly killing me by breaking my back. The new one is comfy and speedy looking. As advertised, it was easy to assemble too. 😀
In addition to the chair, I bought some lighting equipment from Alien Bees. I ordered an additional B800 light, a boom arm attachment, a remote control trigger kit for lighting, and a background light stand (which is just a smaller light stand). This stuff will allow me to do stuff that I’ve been imagining for the last year, including lighting a scene entirely with spotlights, and having a low-angle backlight. The boom arm will allow me to suspend a light directly over the subject for some pretty dramatic lighting effects. I can’t wait! :bounce:
I went to see Team America tonight. All I have to say is OMG. It’s probably the funniest movie I’ve seen in years. I have never laughed continuously for so long. The movie is filled with absolutely ridiculous parodies of everyone. I thought it was just going to be a stab at Americans going around the world and fucking shit up, which it was, but they also made fun of the other side too. Hilarious. Go see it now! :nod:
