i broke it!

i broke it!

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.

Happy Wednesday!
