NAB 2006 Wrap Up (or Wow What A Week!)

I’m more or less fully recovered from NAB in Las Vegas. What a great week it was. I met a lot of great people, saw a ton of great stuff and thoroughly enjoyed myself. So let me start off with the convention. Some of the more interesting exhibits I saw were the Red Camera, the […]

NAB 2006 Las Vegas April 22-27

I’ve only been back from New York a few days and now I’m on the road again. This time I’m in Las Vegas at NAB The World’s Largest Electronic Media Show. I’ve already gathered a slew of business cards and the conference hasn’t even started. I also got invited to an event in the Bellagio […]

Meeting Stop Motion Legend Ray Harryhausen

Last night at the MGLA meeting here in Los Angeles stop motion legend Ray Harryhausen presented. It was really amazing to meet someone who more or less invented stop motion animation.

What Do I Have In Common With Pauly Shore?

Today is my first day of Jury Duty, and hopefully the last. I’m stuck in a room full of other people who don’t want to be here, and I find it strange. Trial by jury is guaranteed in the Constitution, but it seems like no one wants to do it. One good thing is they […]

Take for instance this Paris Hilton stencil with Arabic writing and a red star on her head. I’m not sure what it means but it’s pretty funny, and well done […]

Spiderman’s Bi-Coastal Business Overlap

So this afternoon I went to the local coffee shop with free internet and ended up sitting next to a couple who worked in the industry and were bitching about their jobs. How hard it was working at Nickelodeon and for MTV. Then a youngish kid walks in and starts chatting it up with the […]

Medical Movies Or How To Ding Your PowerBook

My trip to New York started off on the wrong foot. I fell asleep with my PowerBook in my lap and when I woke up in the middle of the night I knocked it onto the floor giving it a good ding. Needless to say I was not happy. After a long night and frustrated […]
