HOME, JAMES IS WRAPPED!
Christ on a crutch, after, like, a month of my life, Home, James is finally done. Also amazing is how many commas I just used in a sentence with sixteen words in it. I've just gotten home and am strangely not tired, considering that several hours ago I could barely keep my eyes open. Must be the after glow.
The first thing that I would like to point out is that at the exact moment I was officially wrapped out (the last few shots of the film were MOS, which you all know the meaning of by now) it literally, no joke, started to piss rain. In Los Angeles. Kind of weird. I can count on one finger (no, not that one) how many times I've been in LA during a rain storm. And keep in mind that I actually have lived here once before. But let me tell you, those crafty locals have learned a thing or two about rain since the other rain storm that has ever happened here, and I have photographic proof of it:
Priorities, man. Priorities.
Geez, so many things happened today that it's hard to even recall the highlights. Or is it? Guess who won the final Golden Driller Award? You know, the award that was created to thank the local crew in Tulsa for their hard work? Tulsa, which is not Los Angeles? And to be honest, why is there even another Golden Driller statue/piggy bank thing in the first place? Sorry, got side tracked. Anyway...
I did. Apparently, the voting process was marred by dissension, bickering and late night texts about how I "won't want it anyway," but in the end, how could they resist? I mean, seriously, how do I not win awards every day? And, um, oh yeah. I was just holding that cigarette for someone else. Users are losers, you know.
However, the award ceremony wasn't all joy. Mary Mary Why You Buggin' apparently wasn't pleased with me winning and her...well, losing.
Maybe next film, MMWYB. Unless I'm also working on it, at which point I will totally mop the floor with you again.
But, to be fair, the real winner was our G&E de jour, Ed. Ed had only been with us for a few days, but he kicked so much ass that he won the most coveted award of all: The Singing Frankenstein Doll Award.
What you can't tell from that picture, sadly, is that Ed is somewhere around 11' tall. That's like Super Su standing on another Super Su's shoulders. He's taller than a fully extended C stand.
Fun Fact!!!: Julie bought that doll at Walgreens the night that she drove me to the pharmacy to get my meds for the flesh eating disease I picked up in India, by way of Tulsa. Which, for those of you who have been wondering, is finally effing gone. (Yes, I learned my lesson: wash new t-shirts before you wear them. Got it.)
So, it's too late to write anything super interesting. I'd love to say that I'm going to sleep for forty hours now, but I have to get up early and return some gear, which means I should probably go to bed. A full wrap-up is coming. I promise. It will be epic.
Stay classy, Internet.
