- I know it's
crazy to even make this entry with so little of the
video done (a future entry will have it all) but after
putting this together, there was no choice: a must
share. A must "cement into the Journey" moment.
- Leave it to me to
get the incidental music and nail the font... but
leave it to George to be cool with doing a "Norm" bit.
He would've been fine with me calling him Norm, but
just out of respect I didn't want to. This isn't
actually Cheers and saying his real name makes
it a sweet nod to his past as opposed to truly trying
to copy something. As for the line itself? You watch
enough Cheers episodes and you can write that shit in
your sleep. I honestly just thought about what I would
say and what he would respond. It wrote itself in my
head. That's what happens when characters are well
developed: it's a joy to sit inside their heads and
let them speak through you.
- The conversation
with George was awesome. Not exactly sure how it's
going to be edited into the tournament video or if
anything can stand alone. We talked about so much from
sports to politics... could've been there all day.
George had an hour and we used every moment. I think
the portion of the interview I'm happiest about was
him talking about his friend John Ratzenberger. John
has become quite a vocal right-wing voice... not sure
of a nice way to say it, but it's quite radical and
frankly, confusing. I asked about how George dealt
with that just presuming George felt differently
politically, and he did. He said when they talk, they
just talk about other shit. We really do have so much
more in common than not. THEY label us and put us in
separate camps. I spoke of my own friends that have
differing views and I do the same. Love can be
stronger than our differences. It was a nice moment in
a realm I honestly didn't think I'd ask him about...
but after opening the 2nd bottle of beer, I had no
- Anyway, so much
more when I get through all this footage, I just
had to make an entry about those 20 seconds.
I think I've watched it 20 times. It's
unbelievable to me each time. As is the following
picture that will be hanging at the bar very
