"It shoots through schools."

Dan moved from Jackson Heights in Queens to Park Slope Brooklyn on Wednesday. Normally rain is the bane of a moving day, but it was so hot and muggy that the cool summer rain was actually quite refreshing. His new place is really nice, and I think that I'll be spending quite a bit of time in his neighborhood now.

When clearing out Dan's apartment, we found my boom that I had brought over for the first shoot of The Early Mixes. This was not a manufactured boom but rather one that I improvised myself out of a metal rod and a clamp. We never ended up using it, preferring instead to keep the microphone on a stand, which actually ended up being much more advantageous when cutting together the footage. I was nevertheless going to take the boom home with me when I left Dan's.

I picked up the boom and was holding it like a spear, when lightning flashed. I thought, "Ah, dramatic backlighting!" while Dan's girlfriend Melissa thought "Josh is going to go outside in a thunderstorm holding a lightning rod." I may very well owe my life to her right now!

I am currently hoping that the weather clears up in time for the New York Mets/Arizona Diamondbacks game at CitiField tonight!

I'm checking out Superman: Doomsday. Kal-El should keep the long hair.

Meme yoinked from Arete:

Goofy questions, writing your own response, and tag other victims. You have to tag me so really you just need to tag more people. If I tagged you, it's because I want to know more about you - but not in a creepy stalker kind of way.

To do this, go to “notes” under tabs on your profile page, paste these instructions in the body of the note, type your title as "Getting to know each other!", tag 25 people including me (tagging is done in the right hand corner of the app) then click publish.
