Blogger Block.

You may have noticed I haven't posted a damned thing since Saturday.  Bah on me.

Sorry, I just haven't had anything particularly interesting to talk about.  I actually did start a few different posts on various subjects and realized if I was boring myself to tears, so I decided not to inflict that on you.

There are a couple of other things you might want to take a look at, though.  A week or two ago, I realized that most of what I write about the film biz consists of bitching about it.  Well, that's fair...bitching is fun.  So I was thinking about how cool it is to do this for a living sometimes, and before I got a chance to write about it, A.J. did it...and did a fine job of it too.

Also, I know most of you aren't all that concerned about the esoteric knowledge required to be a good dolly grip, but it won't take you all that long to read this.  Whenever you're watching the credits at the end of a movie (or even just stuck to your seat, so you don't have a choice but to notice how long they are), D's post is a good reminder of just why there are so many people involved in making a movie.  There are a lot of jobs to be done and most of them really are specialties.  In other words, we each have our own little (or not so little) areas of responsibility and it takes quite a bit of experience and expertise to be good at any one of them.

I'm off to The Hamptons in the morning for a couple of days' recce.  I doubt I'll need my shorts and sandals.  Damn!

I'm pretty sure the only reason I'll be permitted beyond Exit 68 is that the Season hasn't started yet. :)
