All right, I'm not sure exactly how happy I am about this.

Boy am I glad I drove in today. I am already tired. A lot of that has to do with the heat, of course, which will let up a bit when the sun goes down in... oh... three hours or so. I'm hoping that the workload will have thinned out a bit by tonight. My solace: next week's paycheck is going to be suh-weeeeet.

My job today took me to an editing suite. I always feel strange whenever I go to a job where the site involves filmmaking, editing in particular. I always want to drop whatever I'm doing and start working on the project at hand. I can't, of course, and the people there would wonder exactly what a T-1 technician might or might not know about editing. I've always liked editing; one can even say that my mix-making hobby is essentially the same idea but with pre-existing music instead of film footage.

I did notice that the scene the guy was working on (he was doing sound design) had some issues with it. There was a fight scene that took place in a narrow alley. It was cut very fast, which makes sense given the action in the scene, but there didn't seem to be enough coverage of the fight. The scene kept violating the 180° rule, and the tightness of the location meant that the scene kept slipping out of context. If there had been some shots from intermediate angles other than the direct opposites, the scene would have looked fine, but as it stood, the scene looked very choppy and confusing. And it's really hard to confuse me at an editing table.

Oh, and this is hysterical.
