Wayward Crow

I guess he could still fly. Yes I changed the phone number, so if you see our little wayward crow contact me. He’s black, I’m guessin’.

The Cake Delimma

The cake delimma. So, on Saturday we had two full cakes left over from my grandmothers service. Problem is, what do you do with them? They’ve got “in memorium” written all over them. The plan is to pawn one off at work in one of the kitchens. My thought is if they “don’t know” it […]

Lunar New Year

[LUNAR NEW YEAR VIDEO LINK – 1m:11secs – 160×120 – 1mb] Sunset Blvd. Lunar New Year Parade, festivities, and the loudest damn thing I’ve ever heard. That’s nuts.


Wetafx L.A. Tonight a rogue group of former Weta worker bees met at Paru’s in L.A. for dinner. Most of the discussion was post Lord of the Rings travel adventures, why we don’t want to go back, 5 year plans, who’s working where, who’s looking, and the mid meal diaper change. I drove around for […]

Many years ago a sound effects editor named Kay Rose came up with the term “Bake Off”. It was coined because of […]

Shanghai Nights Premiere

Diane Garrett, “Variety” reporter extroadinaire invited me to the Premiere of “Shanghai Knights” at El Capitan theater. Lot’s of press and lights all over the place. Jackie Chan was doing interviews out on the street. Fans were lined up on Hollywood Blvd. We got to walk down the red carpet. Well at least behind all […]

Tweedle Dumb – Hollywood Blvd.

His mom probably accepts him, but his dad is probably in denial. “We should have never sent him to that clown college.”
