This is why they call it rehearsal, I guess. I’ve been trying and failing to bring in gear via traditional channels (Amazon, Newegg) and Overnight shipping, but something isn’t working, and I don’t know why. I’ve been on the phone with the credit card companies, on email with the vendors, and both teams are blaming the other. Not good.
I also tore the video line out of my confidence monitor, which is less-than exciting, to say the least. I’m hoping that the guys that I use for these things (Videotex systems) can get through with replacements where the big guys can’t. If nothing else, it could be because of the personal attention. We’ll see.
I have to order plexi, too, but at this point, I’m nervous about sending it anywhere that I might not be for more than 24 hours. I’m also not going to send it internationally, even though we’re just talking about Canada. Today, I at least take measurements for the plexi I need. We’ll see how it goes.
Anyway, no fitness dispatches from the road yet – I’m still trying to get back into roadie shape. I’m exhausted, and while the days are long, they’re not long. Not by the standards of a PA or someone who’s used to real days of labor. I’m just out of “gigging shape” as the guys say. I’ll try to get my act together tonight if it’s a shorter day today. Also, there’s a chance that I’ll book a BRANDED shoot for Thursday evening. The odds are slim, but I’m already thinking about my options for lighting.
