I’m seriously proud of myself. Starting at 6:30pm PST yesterday, I began my 24 hours of documentation of “A Day in the Life of Bon” per instructions at Chip’s blog.
I remember the results of this challenge (which I did not take on) in February 2003 to be quite delightful and insightful. So, this time, I took it on. And I did gooooood. I took photos of my work, my kitties, my Keith, my phone calls, my headshot files, my cantaloupe-eating, and even my looking for grey hairs in the mirror-ing.
And now it’s time to upload.
The card reader for my digital camera doesn’t work on *any* version of OSX. Since I got the Chicklet in early 2003, we’ve been uploading photos using Keith’s ancient ThinkPad and then FTPing them to me for sharing from there. That ThinkPad (Stinky) officially died a few weeks ago after a bout with chronic fried-insides-itis. Had I mentioned that? Yeah. So, Keith’s on the Chicklet, I’m on the as-yet-unnamed gift from Joseph Montana, and no one can upload photos from the hand-me-down digital camera my dad and SM gave me in December of 2000.
Oh well. My photos were really good. I promise! And I was so damn proud to have finished the assignment, ready to upload, crop, and caption while watching ANTM. Grr. Suckola. Chip, I know you mentioned we could send you the photos for hosting. Does that mean I can snail mail you my 16mb media card for a six-year-old Olympus 1.3mpxl camera?
I crack myself up.
Back to casting.
PS — Ask me to tell you all someday (in person, no papertrail) the things I’ve learned in casting this particular film re: submissions and pitch calls. Quite ethnographically titillating.
