What a quick weekend. Tony Ririe came over to do his voice overs on Saturday (for HRGSTW) and we began our taxes for 2005. Worked on taxes all Sunday and almost have 2005 completed. We had Einsturzende Neubauten: Liebeslieder DVD playing in the back ground. I have been a casual Neubauten listener over the years, but this DVD really puts into focus the impact the band (or performance art troupe) has had over the years in the avant-garde and industrial music genres. Worth exploring more. Multi-tasked (calculator in one hand- computer keyboard in the other) and finished Melinda Miles Go-Girl Pin-Up Spotlight. It's one of the best I've done so far

Major Matt Mason

Major Matt Mason...found this jpg on the internet that brought back childhood memories. In the late sixties everyone was space crazy, what with the Space Race in full swing and men going around and then on the moon. It was a very exciting time to be a kid. Major Matt was a space hero action figure made by Mattel ("Matt" Mason- coincidence or conspiracy?) Anyway I had all the toys and it inspired me (and most of the kids on my block) to want to become astronauts when we grew up. I have to ask- What the hell happened America!?!? I can not believe we don't have a real Moon Base or a colony on Mars right now. It was in the cards. Then we dropped the ball with Vietnam and the country fell apart. So did the Space Program. It makes me wonder how complacent human beings really are. Now we worry about money and money and money. How much does that Space Ship cost? What is the financial return. Greed without a vision. It is our undoing and may be our downfall. To think we had the stars within our grasp and then spent thirty years fretting about the expenses. Such a retarded species is human kind. Maybe the new Chinese Space Program will light a fire under the worlds ass. It seems America is so competitive (like that spoil rich kid in class who always has to win every game he plays) when it comes to being the center of attention. If the Chinese make a Moon Base then we'll have to have two- to show we are twice as good.

Melinda Miles

Took a little editing detour and started on a Go-Girls Pin-Up Spotlight for Miss Melinda Miles- a real life Pin-Up and Hot Rod Girl. Weekend Movies- The Sex Pistols: Filth & The Fury (must see) & Leonard Cohen- I'm Your Man (also must see- how about Leonard Nimoy-I'm Your Alien...)

HRGSTW Editing

Finally finished scene 33. Turned out harder than anticipated. Another in the HRGSTW rough cut column.

Saturday The Fourteenth. It's sunny outside. Started rainy and got sunny. There's a saying in Seattle- "If you don't like the weather, wait 15 minutes." 

Movie rentals - Children Of Men (Clive Owen is the new Charles Heston), The Promise (I wish I could fly around like that, especially with a sword in my hand and a cloak of eternal life wrapped around my fat ass), Einstrurzende Neubauten: Halber Mensch (with added Butoh BBQ- I love that firecracker dance). Did I mention CHUCK HESTON! Omega Man, Planet Of The Apes, Soylent Green. What an "Armageddon Bad Ass."

HRGSTW Editing

Friday the Thirteenth. It's raining hard outside. Good computer editing weather. I spent the last few days doing back story development for Hot Rod Girls Save The World. Mostly map making and character layout for the prequel. I needed a little break from the current editing...but now I'm back on Scene 33. It's a nuts and bolts kinda scene, nothing fancy, no action.

HRGSTW Editing

Finished Scene 2. This one was really difficult- as it's all on the planet Moosha Maa and every frame is special effects. Features a quick performance by Psycho Charger. The premise is Earths TV and radio waves are disrupting Mosshian Intergalactic TV reception. The signal that is "the last straw" is the Psycho Charger video.

Movie rentals for the week Devo- The Complete Truth About Devolution (cool and quirky) & The Laurel & Hardy Collection (extremely slow by todays standards but funny).
