Just booked an editing job. Things were starting to get pretty scary there... our own company is still forming and not bringing in any cash flow yet (yet!), so I'm still relying on day jobs, which have been few and far between. Obviously, no writing jobs as of late (Pens down means pens down!), so I've been bringing home the bacon through the video editing, but even those have been scarce these past few months.

Anyway, it's only a week's work, but the pay isn't too terrible, and they dangled the 'possible more work' carrot in front of me. It also sounds like it's going to be incredibly boring, tedious, and uncreative (even more so than the 90 minute high school reunion video I had to edit a few months back). But it is paying work, and as long as the check clears, hell, I'd edit a snuff film at this point.

So that's good.

Oh. There's this retirement home I drive by occasionally, called "Sunrise Assisted Living", or something very close to that. Something must have changed in management or owners, because I noticed last time I drove by it, they'd covered up (very unprofessionally, like with big strips of masking tape) the second word in the name. So now it's "Sunrise Assisted Living". I'm just picturing the residents living there, watching that word being crossed out. How depressing.

Depressing, but funny.

Here's to not getting old!

A bit further north, on Tampa and Vanowen, is the retirement home I talk about every now and then. A mortuary is directly across the street, and I have to beleive that there is an underground "tunnel of death" linking the retirement home and the mortuary together to make it easier to cart away the deceased to proper storage.

It would just seem silly not having one, you know?

Even easier than a death tunnel? Catapult.

Or pneumatic tube technology! Like with letters in office buildings!

Oh my god, I love this idea! I'm gonna get the boys up in R&D working on it immediately!

Hey - i've been meaning to ask you - do you have an online list of films you've been involved in? I'm just interested to see if my company carries any of them.

http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0003771/ has a list of the films that have been released, the only ones your company might carry. Lots of stuff that has been bought but hasn't been made yet though, sadly.

Unless the "Address Unknown" you were involved in was a Pokemon episode, it seems that we don't. Shame.

Ha, no it wasn't Pokemon. But oh! If you carry cartoon compilations, I wrote episodes of the Timon & Pumbaa show, and also for Buzz Lightyear, if you carry any of those.

Nope, those neither. We don't have a lot of children's programming though. The Pokemons are on at about 5am on saturday mornings.

Really? I enjoy both of those!

We should talk.
