Loma Prieta mountain caught on fire two days ago. Now the fire has burned about 2200 acres. It's weird to think that a road I was riding my bike last week is closed because it's in the path of the fire . Today the smoke was pouring into our parking lot and it ash was covering our cars. Took this picture yesterday from our back parking lot
This is a random picture I found on the Internet taken yesterday
Made it down to Cunningham Skate Park and had an insane night. Skating a full pipe must be done by everyone at least once in their life. This place has some very intense vert and equally intense skaters. I did fall. And yes it fucking hurt. I need to heal quickly. I want more.
Here is the pool that killed me. This sucker was about 10 feet deep with a foot of vert.
Sunday Morning, I sit here with puppies and coffee. It's the day all of the world it seems drops what they are doing so that they can see actors cry and blow smoke up each others asses. It's the Oscars. In an hour, I will be heading off to my edit suite to help promote the importance of the Hollywood Circus Clowns. Red carpets, freshly bleached teeth, and a finely tuned fake laughs, is pretty much the norm.
I will be editing down sound bites from the red carpet and showing off the beautiful threads of those in attendance. I guess it's a version of instant replay.
11:00am: Getting my Haircut
Here is what Kimberly my stylist came up with: (Shirt by Hurley)
1:42pm: Eat Greek Food. Just given the debrief. I will be cutting together Ellen moments, interviews on the red carpet, and winner reactions.
2:06pm: Red Carpet Feed is coming in from LA. Producer is picking music
2:43pm: No red carpet moments still. Celebs are still drinking heavily. My Final Cut Sequences are ready.
3:18pm Control Room 1. Stress level at Defcon 1. All systems running. A producer is missing, might be puking in the bathroom.
OUR FIRST INTERVIEW!! Go Wolfgang. 300 chefs making food under his guidance
3:42: The dudes carrying the ballots just showed up. They have a metric ton of security
3:45pm Rehersal 2 happening in studio 1.They have no makeup and cuss more when the mess up.
4:14pm: I just burped a ridiculous gaseous greek burp in my edit room.
4:27pm The executive producer is pacing the halls looking for more stuff to freak me out with.
4:40pm Just edited Dana Brunetti talking about the focus puller who puked on Tom Hanks during the filming of Captain Phillips.
4:43pm Producer doesn't want to use the Brunetti interview after I finished cutting it.
The crowd on the red carpet is getting way loud. No wonder stars do drugs
653pm: Cutting and cutting and cutting
9:07pm: Finished the last edit after the producer stressed a bit. We made the deadline but the edit never made it to Air because of mistakes by others. Oh well. A day of editing for my own entertainment. At least I liked it.
11:00pm Home in bed. The Mistake Makers wanted to make more edits at 10pm. I politely cried no. I hope they are done by 12am.
