Going to Dallas for a couple of days for business. I'm actually flying home a day earlier than everybody else. Usually they keep me around an extra day even if there's no computer auction to help out, but to tell the truth I don't like doing the other shit.
So on the one hand, a smaller paycheck. On the other hand, don't gotta do shit I hate.
Then I'll be back for a couple of days and off to Cancun.
I'm gonna try VERY hard to not think about how much work awaits me on my return. At the point I get back I gotta kick Ttory 2 into overdrive.
- Completely cast two segments.
- Start overseeing the FX so I don't have any disasters on this one like the first one
- Go out location scouting. In the woods, and on the eastern shore where I'm gonna have to film a couple of scenes.
- Buy all the props.
- Do a ton of equipment tests.
- Make sure my shooting scripts are rock solid.
I think those are the main things. Obviously as we get closer I'll have to do all the menial shit like buy snacks/water/bug spray and shit. Honestly, I'm not dragging a cooler into the woods on this one. Will have it in the car and tell people to grab what they want and carry them to the set. Just have enough to last til the break, and we can go back and get more.
I haven't turned on my edit computer in over a month. It's kinda weird.
My KVM switch is fucked. I used to have a 2-computer switch, but then when I had 3 computers hooked up I had to get the 4 computer(they don't make 3's that I know of).
But this one is doing REALLY weird shit where one computer's mouse or keyboard just stops working. I have to unplug the USB plug to that computer, wait a moment for Windows to beep that something's changed, then plug it back in.
That USED to be the fix.
Now the one computer, if it loses keyboard, LOSES it. Period. And then, oddly, none of the other USB ports work on that computer anymore until I reboot it. Looking at the Device Manager always shows 2 exclamation points under Human Interface Device.
It got so bad and was happening so often that now I just have my two internet computers hooked up to separate mice and keyboards. It's a hassle.
I should just completely abandon the old computer, but I still do a lot of shit there. (there's still some stuff on this new computer that doesn't work the same way, and I'm not real enthused about that)
Note to self:
Fucking love this song. Really digging a lot of synth that's coming along. The hook on this thing that starts at 22 seconds is SO catchy, and then there's Sax later. I wanna make a movie to put it in.
