Merry Christmas!

Christmas! For all the ugly in the world this year- today was a day of quiet family time for me. Much needed.

Christmas Eve 2012

Bought the tree at Home Depot on Saturday morning and decorated it yesterday evening with our traditional Ska music selections playing in the background. We wanted to get the tree closer to Christmas Day this year. This afternoon we went to see The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. Good film but longish, but it had to be so to accommodate J.R.R.'s incredible story. Tomorrow is Christmas and I feel very thankful to be able to spend time with my little family.

Apocalypse (Not) Now

So all the hype was just that...hype. After a few family members seemed concerned last week, I did some extra research on the Mayans supposed End Of The World Prophecy. Well it seems that the Mayans never said it was the Apocalypse, but rather the ending of a long assed 5,000 year calendar, a time to celebrate, not fear, kinda like a Super New Year.

Full Size Asphalt Slurpie

Snow and slush all over the ground this morning. A little slick in spots driving, but most drivers were slowing down to avoid sliding into each other. Took my wife to work since I had the day off. Nice little slushie drive.

Go-Kustom TV Season 5, Episode 1

Been working on Rod Hill's interview about his 1962 Studebaker Gasser for Go-Kustom TV Season 5, Episode 1. This was from the Rat Bastards Slaughterhouse car show. An extended version of this clip will also be in my upcoming film Rats & Gassers: Kustom Kulture Takes A Ride. My editing schedule has slowed down a bit due to me working full time again and the Holidays. My foot has been bugging me the last week as well. Don't know what I did to it, but it feels like my big to on my right foot is broken or something. Been taking lots of Ibuprofen.

Go-Kustom TV Season 5 Episode 1

Got the new Go-Kustom TV hostess section with Kitty Mansfield edited today.  This is for Episode 1 for Season 5. I also was able to assemble that section with the new intro clip so the front end of this episode is complete. Also did a little work on the Go-Kustom TV website, adding a still of Kitty to the front page and a free downloadable MP3 file of the new, shortened and sped-up version the Go-Kustom TV Theme song. Next I am gonna dig into the full episode editing and then pull two of the interviews for Rats & Gassers: Kustom Kulture Takes A Ride. Many of the interviews from the car shows of Go-Kustom TV will end up in Rats & Gassers

Go-Kustom TV Season 5

Went up to Craig VanSant's garage to film Kitty Mansfield's opening dialog for the first episode of Go-Kustom TV Season 5. I have started final editing on the new series. We have had some interest in the show from a European Motorsports Network so I need to get the pilot completed for screening. I also plan on shopping the show to American Networks once we have the pilot and promo materials ready. Kitty did an excellent job introducing the episode- more to come!

Go-Kustom TV

Been busy with the new job and editing. Completed a new intro for Go-Kustom TV Season 5. This one is shorter and a bit uptempo from the original version. The first episode for Season 5 is the Slaughterhouse Car Show we filmed last summer in Monroe. We will have Kitty Mansfield (our new Hostess) record her opening dialog in a few days.
