06/24/2005: "Shiny Happy"
I woke up and after a week of rain, there was a beautiful blue sky to greet me and sun streaming through my bedroom window. Also, I just found out that one of best friends from high school and her very cool dad are going to be in Juneau for 5 days or so, arriving Wednesday night. I'm really looking forward to showing the place off to them.
I'm also looking forward to the weekend, tonight I have tickets to see the Cowboy Junkies at a local bar which is going to be a lot of fun. Tomorrow night is a going away party at the Island Pub for a friend, with a bonfire on the beach afterward...I'm getting my outboard back soon so maybe there will be sailing, and, since the opening is postponed, I can kick back and take my time finishing the paintings up.
I took Greg's advice and asked a friend to come over to let me photograph body parts that I'm struggling with...and by the way, I've discovered that travel candles are the *perfect* container for keeping liquin. They have a tight seal, they're small, easy to access with a hinged lid...this one isn't exactly the same as mine but you get the idea, just remove the candle.
Oh yah, and yesterday the head of our video club gave me a dvd of Kite Club that he'd been playing around with. Kite Club is a parody of Fight Club that I wrote, directed, and edited. However, Arlo played around with it, added some cool animation, totally fixed the audio, and re-edited the fight scene and credits. The changes ironed out the rough edges so we can enter it in the next JUMP (Juneau Undergroud Movie Project) Film Festival that has a July 1 deadline. I can't wait to see my little baby on the big screen. After JUMP I'll stream it here for all to enjoy!
