icy north

Kissing Jessica Stein Deux… Vermont is going to have snow and Zoe
and I are going to drag her brother up to Boston early Thursday AM and
kick him out of the car at Grandma’s so we can continue on to the
unfettered dream that is Aaron’s Vermont cabin.  Sarah Greenspan
apparently lives in the state as well.  The feature I’ve been working
on has been going with the exception of having things fall on me.
Railing, 150 pound lights, etc.  Healthcare, necessary.  As well as
the yellow fever shot and a Visa to Ethiopia.  Zoe and I are sad to
not be in St. Louis with Matt and Maggie, though i’m not sad to not be
in Oakland, California with the flu on Thanksgiving, two years ago.
Condit and La Jolla and the OC await all this winter as things slow to
an icy halt in the city.  Wish us Godspeed on our journeys both North
and East.

don’t get old

Matt was talking to me on the phone about chemical exposures, the relative hazard of say being a bike messenger, a Russian man, or smoking cigarettes.  All are dangerous, the Russian men have it the worst. And we all get old.  William Hurt is serious, Harvey Keitel looks old, and apparently wants to believe that he’s the only person on set and always checks behind all closed doors.  The Beautiful Ohio picture with Hurt is directed by Rob Lowes’ gay brother Chad.  Hillary Swank produces, Reggie Miller finds the money.  I’m not making this up.  Long Island City was a wind tunnel tonight for a couple of hours, bits of rain and lightning and a tired crew.  Che went up in the condor bucket.  We moved around 4x Kino Flows.   For some reason, Terry finally cleaned the toilet in our bathroom.

the east river, car chases, ruins

the last couple of days on this feature have been a lot, i hope at
some point to get some pictures of me up in the Condor over the East
river on the South End of Rosevelt Island.  They kept shooting this
taxi cab off into the river and pulling it out with a crane. last
night was a car/chase rain scene on the FDR complete with giant fake
rain tower.  Jamison went up on the Condor thankfully.  it was cold
again.  I am still tired and wednesday is a 6am call.
