More like what ruined this month.
A cousin of mine, who I was really close to growing up, is wanted in a murder case. Never expected that. Quite a gut punch there. And to add insult to injury, I found out my best friend since 5th grade is possibly on drugs. I have no way of contacting her and I just don't know what to do...

Wow. I have no words, man. I'm very sorry to hear that.

DJ Khaled is not the nice individual he's made out to be.. Now it could just be that he was exhausted but, I was next on line after waiting 3 hours in the sun and once I was up I walked over to him and said "Hey how ya doin" and he just nodded his head, they took the pic, I said "thanks, it was nice meeting you" put my hand out, he shook it and nodded his head again, before the security kinda pushed things along.

I didn't wait 3 hours in the heat to spend 3 seconds taking a picture next to a mute bobblehead.

Now I get it, it's hot and he probably took hundreds of pictures, but come on, at least respond.


Anyway at least I got to take some pics of the Godzilla billboards in Time Square which kinda made up for it.

To be fair you sort of point it out in your post; he’s hot, he’s tired, he’s taken hundreds of pictures, and there’s a line behind you that needs to keep moving. Nothing personal against you, but he’s done it a hundred of times already and has to do it a hundred times more; any sane individual would be sick and tired of shaking hands and taking pictures by that point.

Yeah that's most likely the case, my only issue is he was chilling in an AC'd shoe store, sitting on a throne. So it's like, Idk I guess I expected more after such a long wait. Especially after hearing that he gave out hundreds of dollars to some kids earlier in the day.

But yeah I said the same thing, he was likely tired and ready to call it quits after the first hundred or so pictures.

Well, from the sound of it, neither of these problems is concrete, yet, so here's hoping your cousin is proven innocent and your friend is clean.

Same. I'm at a loss for words but I can only hope that things will work out and that none of you are alone in this.

yeah, while i'll probably still like the film, the fact the score' still so low at this point kinda does suck. we're only so far away from 100 and it dosn't seem like it's getting much better.

At first I was thinking "damn this is tragic". But then I realized it's no sweat off our backs.

The audience score is what the audience cares about, the critic scores are aimed at the "special" types that want something very particular in their movie going experience.

Most of us along with the main general audience are going into this film for the fun and enjoyment that it's looking to offer.

I'm sure ti'll have a fantastic weekend and the audience score will be much much higher than the "critics".

We recently got a drive's worth of footage in for a new documentary project. It was sent from South Africa, so there's no way to just bring the producers in to explain any of their organization to us.

And that organization? Almost nonexistent. The drive is a complete mess. Ambiguous naming, redundancies, things that may or may not be related to the project. If I sent off a drive that looked like this, I would be fired. If somebody working under me sent off a drive that looked like this, I would fire them.

I almost never do this, but I insisted that we get clarification from the producers before I would start ingesting the footage.

Apparently, the clarification document was sent a week ago, and nobody forwarded it to me until today. That's nice.

And it clarifies very little. A few things we were told we could skip, a few things we were told we redundant, but lots of information that's basically useless to me (I want dates and camera designations, not comments on the content of the footage).

My favorite?

From the producer of this project, regarding a folder's worth of his own footage: "I can't read these files, and would be interested to know what they are."

@Eabaker, that sucks, I can`t stand it when standard things like desktops are disorganized. I can only imagine what its like in your case. That feels like a fundamentally vital pat of the process.

Yeah, there's a degree to which I enjoy the detective work that can be part of my job, but when it crosses from "puzzle to solve" into "total mess to clean up," the charm fades quickly.

But he's Canadian? Who in the hell misses a Canadian?

He's probably somewhere over there getting free health care and mounting mooses to save baby beavers that get stuck in maple syrup traps eh.

Came down with a weird illness last night that persisted when I woke up. Appetite comes and goes, dull headache, and feeling generally bleh. I was at least able to make a call and set up a job interview for Monday, but I doubt I have the concentration/energy to do very much else today.

Doesn't help that I'm paranoid it might be related to the bite I received from our pet snapping turtle, which ruined my Saturday. I disinfected the wound well enough, but snappers can carry salmonella without getting sick themselves. Though we have been feeding him cooked meat and poultry whenever it was special treat day for over a year.
