boston to montreal… soon…

I’m a little worried about the bike trip Matt, me, and a random friend of Charlie’s are going on from Cambridge, Mass. to Montreal, Quebec soon, as in August 2nd. I have my fingers crossed that everything will come together, that we’ll all have bug netting, a functional tarp, won’t need a stove, have enough water, etc., etc. I’m going to go for a ride tomorrow, need to work the kinks out. was a tiring week and a half on set under the hot sun and lights. Hopefully the shop I found to build my wheel is legitimate, they seemed alright. The route isn’t set, but Aaron is waiting up in Montpelier. Alana is in Montreal. Backyard party this weekend.

Astoria House Warming – BBQ, beer – this Saturday the 30th..

I’ve been talking about this for a while and it was time to make it happen, my long anticipated summer beer, BBQ house warming bash – we have a full back yard, a picnic table, sometimes a hammock, hanging lanterns, tiki torches, and china balls… this is the full nine yards folks… bring your friends.

drop it like it’s hot…

worked a good week in the Rockaway’s and fat hot Coney Island as the 3rd Electric on a feature shoot, thanks to Jamison the Gaffer.
Jamison had entreated a good friend of his from Maryland who just graduated as the “Electric Intern” anyhow, it was a good crew and the shoot seems to be going well from the week I saw. I got some sun, liked the beach at the Rockaways. Zoe had a sailboat race this morning out near Long Island and I hope to hang around the house, maybe try to unpack more things.

I’m looking for a video shooter out in Seattle for this Mustache doc I might be working on. Getting ready for the bike trip with Matt to Montreal soon, Boston to Montreal seems like a good trip. Apparently the bus is pretty cheap back. the music video I shot for Conor, James, and Stephen is online http://themorningline.marybicycles.com
that’s about all. There’s more projects on the burner, despite the heat, things feel good.

weddings and the lot

david’s cat was happy about the wet catfood. brian has a cut of the music video ready for me to see tonight. i had to fire Elysha. she didn’t have anything to show for 2 months, stonewalling, me and her, i’m sick of it. I want it done out of my life. summer rains in astoria. DC, and fat suburban legs. I didn’t even want to take pictures. Zoe and I are like secret agents slipping by in the night in and out of other people’s beds. limed oak? structures?
integrity? music: http://www.takemybreathaway.net/ not much else. may have an outdoor backyard party soon, housewarming, astoria. finally.
