My maybe new band had its first practice last night which I guess, to be honest, was pretty horrible. Not because we were particularly shitty, but because one floor above us in the same apartment a guitar ensemble ripped through some sick jazz standards and all we could do was compare ourselves to them. I write â€śmaybe new bandâ€? because weâ€™re sort of just throwing this together for a show in a week and a halfâ€¦ I donâ€™t foresee anything beyond that. Our sound sort of has an inbred-hodgepodge weirdness to it since the instrumentation (guitar, bass, mandolin, banjo, drums (me!)) doesnâ€™t really fit the songwriting. But oh well, weâ€™re just some kids having fun.
Clients. Fucking clients, Charles. How are they so stupid? Iâ€™ve got one dude who wants to revise a spot, but the changes heâ€™s requesting were already made before we finished the job, another dude want to keep recutting the spots trying to force it to be something they didnâ€™t shoot forâ€¦ grrrâ€¦
â€¦holy crap! We just got in some reels for prospective editorsâ€¦ this one girlâ€¦ just out of school, we pop it inâ€¦ first spotâ€¦ a spot we edited! Her whole reel is full of spots that have aired yet sheâ€™s just out of college. BUSTED! That made my day. A glimpse into someoneâ€™s desperation, her cunning plan, and seeing it totally backfire in her face. Why does that make me happy?
