admit, it's kinda cool it all happened in
a one calendar month. Life has it's poetry
every now and again.
really, I pulled it off amazingly
quick considering I also finished T3 in
the same month. In fact...holy shit.
I completed T3, and this garage
the exact same period. Oh yeah,
I finished T3 today.
Realize of course
there has been considerable time off work lately. It's
been slower than usual, and since we've already
established I'm done at the end of next month,
I believe there's a bit of a phase out. Oh well,
you move onto the next gig. I have more skills
than I believe any human should be allowed sometimes,
and I'll find something.
Even with that
though, man I flew on the room. The carpet came
in a week ago and I had the strangest experience of
moving my entire life...100 feet away. Though it
probably sounds easier, it really isn't. It's exactly
like moving for real - just without the scenery of
highways. All the hard shit is still there. What blew
me away was that everything actually worked.
I mean, I routed more cables than the carpet
guys had ever seen before and I plugged everything in
and - voila. Worked the first time. Get this - I even
routed an ethernet cable under some unused sprinkler
pipes underneath my driveway, under thouse through the
garage wall - split two times, soldered back together
and boom. No problem. Jess is completely networked
from inside the house. Nothing EVER works that
There is bad news
however. The creek. Goddamn the creek in the floor
board. It was the one spot I knew I'd never get
out - and when everything else is perfect, it sucks
even more. Smack dab in the middle of where everyone
walks when they come in. (sigh). It's the only spot in
the entire place, but GOD it bugs me. That and as
I mentioned before the drywall job - fucking pathetic.
The ceiling is even more of a laugh. It's stable as
hell, but I need to get that bubbly ceiling paint
stuff to hide the flaws. OTHERWISE, it's awesome. It
is now my home. I will still have the tiny
bedroom (and I do mean tiny, it's 9x7!) but 95%
of my life is now here.
The real house
though - whew: depressing as shit. Jess and
I spend zero time there. It's just a constant
reminder of everything that we still don't want to
think about right now as it does us no good anyway. So
much has to be done, and this will be dragged out for
at least another 6 weeks or so. So
And by the way -
to all the "husbands" out there getting shit from
their wives because you still haven't finished that
deck or basement project, I have a good reply for
you. "No problem babe, all you have to do is leave me
and I'll get right on it." ;-) That should shut 'em up
for a bit. Heh.
So of course, the
other news is equally as huge - T3 is complete. Of
course there's a few audio things I could work on for
the next 3 years, but I have no more time.
I have 2 1/2 days at work (thank GOD!) and then
the show. Can't believe that it took every second of
my free time to complete this. It is by far the most
labored over work I've ever done. I'll get into it in
The T3 Chronicles Part 7 probably on Wednesday if I
can find the time to edit the Trailer. The final
Chronicle will be the premiere and then - it's a
PAAAAAACKED 2 weeks as I try to finish the
DVD and burn 50 copies by the time I leave.
I haven't even begun to start on that and last
time it took me about a month to finish everything.
Son of a bitch I just don't know how I finish it
all. I need that 10 day vacation in Columbus in
the worst way.
For now however...
Rehearse, rehearse, rehearse and kickass this Thursday
night at 8 PM.
LA folks can make it out. Check out the
page for all the info.
PS - Wow, just
counted - 10 entries in this month. That's 25 friggin'
entries in 2 months. All with videos and.... ugh. Head
spinning man. What a period of time...
