There's something very satisfying about really pounding against the keys when you type. It makes you feel like you're actually doing something. Like pissing your neighbors off, for instance.
The past week has been pretty busy, but in a good way. Had two film shoots for the film I'm working on, which you should be hearing more about soon. One was on Sunday, the other Thursday. They both went pretty well being comprised of people who don't have a lot of experience with making films. That includes myself. There were technical issues, of course, but those were to be expected.
The most glaring technical issue occurred on Thursday. We were shooting in Jordan's apartment. The lights we checked out from school use a lot of electricity, so much that everything on the apartment's electrical circuit would randomly fail while we were shooting. We ended up with a reel of footage in which things are going well only to have the lights abruptly turn off on us in the middle of a moment or a line, which is both hilarious and horrifying at the same time.
Listening to some ambient-ish sort of music right now. Boards of Canada. An album called The Campfire Headphase. Nice background music.
Also: does anyone know if donating to Wikipedia means you don't have to deal with Jimbo Wales staring at you every time you try to look something up? I did indeed plan on donating; I just thought it'd be a nice thing to do for those who end up giving some money.
Heading back into Des Moines come next Wednesday. Looking forward to it. It marks the first time I'll be behind the wheel of a car since August. So be careful, I guess.
