Last night I signed up for GameTap once again. I was a beta tester for them back in August or so of last year, and I really liked their service, it’s just they didn’t have a huge library of game titles at the time. So, I decided to give them another try and to my surprise there are tons more games up there now. I ended up playing some classic games like 1942 and Pac Man. I then veered into some video slot machines. After all that, I downloaded Conquest and fell in love with it. It’s a real-time strategy game like Command & Conquer or Star Wars: Empire at War. Except it friggin’ huge! And multiplayer. So, I ended up playing until 2:00am. I haven’t been that excited about a game in a while. I’m even seriously considering cancelling my WoW subscription now since I haven’t really played in months.

The script is now in Millard’s hands and he’s editing it to his heart’s content. Hopefully everything will be finalized in the next couple of days. We have decided to do a pick up shoot this Saturday to add in some additional footage. I hope to actually be editing by next Monday night.

Script Finished

I finished the first draft of the script tonight. Fucking A. It’s a really good feeling to have this damned thing done. It ended up being 35 pages long, which isn’t too terrible. Tomorrow afternoon I’ll be heading down to Millard’s and we’re going to spend a few hours reading it and editing it, changing it as needed. If we don’t decide to do a total re-write on it, I should be able to get all the changes made Monday. Er… tomorrow… Damn. It’s late.

Millard swung by tonight and we were going to head over to McCurdy’s Comedy Club to see a show. We got there and the line ended up being pretty long. After maybe 10 minutes waiting in line (and only moving about 15 feet), we decided to head back to my place to play some Vice City. He’s crashing here because I noticed his headlight was out and, with it being Memorial Day weekend and all, he thought it a bad idea to be out after dark. No tickets, please.

Tomorrow begins my new workout regiment. (watch out ladies!)

Edit: I was going to post this blog last night, but by the time I got around to it, the website backup was running and I couldn’t log in. 🙁

I Continue To Pen

Well, I worked more on the script again tonight. I’m really happy with it so far. As I’ve been writing, the story has been gelling nicely. I know I’ll need to go back and tweak half of the first page, but other than that, I’m very pleased. Here’re the current stats:

  • 8.2 pages
  • 4,300 words
  • 25.5 minutes

Time to go sautee some onions and garlic for the 15-bean soup.

Writin’ and Cookin’

Well, I’ve been working on the script for the DVD project the last few days and am at a point where I’ve got five pages written. In the grand scheme of things that doesn’t seem like a hell of a lot, but it puts me about 15 minutes into the video. This project will likely be about 50 minutes long, so I’m about one third of the way done. I made a timeline for myself, and the first rough draft should be complete by Saturday night, after which I’ll have one more week to hash out all the details and adjustments to the script before the final version is due.

Tonight, I finished a bottle of Famous Jake’s Chipotle Hot Pepper Sauce. It was a bottle I got for Christmas. I really enjoyed it, even if it was a bit mild for my liking. Good flavor.

I’ve got a package of 15-bean soup soaking in the crock pot right now. Tomorrow night I’ll add in a bunch of Cajun spice and some sautéed onions and sausage and have a bowl of spicy soup! Mmm… After that comes out of the crock, I’ll be making some chili for the weekend. I love crock pots.

Friday night Millard, Shauna and I are going to go see X-Men 3. I think Glenn and Amy may tag along too.

Sick Thought of the Day: Hot sauce in the eye.

Done Transcribing

I worked on transcribing all the footage yesterday and finally finished it around 1:00am this morning. The next step is to compile the script and story line and prepare to get a complete script to compliment the Demo. That way Millard can go and do what he needs to do while I work on editing the feature.

We edited the Pleaseeasaur DVD for on Thursday. He wanted to put together a sampler video for people so they could see the DVD before buying it. I added it to the Screening Room on my site, even though all I did was assist in the editing. Pleaseeasaur is some weird shit, but it’s pretty funny too.
