Computer alert! Computer alert! One day after my Treo took this photo, it died. I guess the weird but cool scan lines were a hint things were about to go wrong.

Date With Ikea: A Shoutout To MS

Until Ikea comes to Brooklyn, a trip out to the blue and yellow giant still means a day trip for us city folk. So why not make a mini-vacation out of it, snapping photos and getting all excited over $.99 cafeteria cheesecake like a tourist?This shot is for the Mighty Mikael, who helped me set up this very blog.

The replacement of the Lincoln Road bridge is one of the reasons the Q has been all crazy absent on weekends this month. But hey — cool view, huh?.Title reference: “The Crunge” by Led Zeppelin.(Brighton Line Subway [B/Q] at Lincoln Rd, Brooklyn)

Silver Sprung!

Media_httpstaticflick_scnbu

Last night was the world premiere of Take It Or Leave It? at the DC Asian Pacific Film Festival and I’m very glad to say the audience seemed to really enjoy it. They laughed big — and in all the right places. After the screening, I got up on stage with Jackie (my actor) and the two other filmmakers in attendance for a Q&A, which went very well. Everything else about the festival has been great, too. The staff of the festival are super-nice and friendly. I’ve met some very cool fellow filmmakers. The theater where my short screened was the AFI Silver, a new theater with a excellent projection and a great sound system. Not least, I’ve seen some terrific films, most notably the wonderful The Grace Lee Project by Grace Lee and the devastating And Thereafter by Hosup Lee, both of which are documentaries. I wish I had time to stay for the entire festival, because there are a lot of good films showing.I’m happy now, but to be perfectly honest, I was anxious all week long leading up to the premiere. I’d never seen the film on a real cinema screen before and never before an audience of strangers. I wasn’t sure what to expect. How would my hand-held DV camerawork look on the big screen? Would the audience laugh at the jokes? Would the tape jam during the screening? What kind of questions would they ask at the Q&A if they hated the film? Should I bother ironing my shirt before going?Fortunately, it all went well. I wish I could be in Vancouver for the Canadian premiere next month, but I need to work on my next project. If you’re in Vancouver, please go see it — and please laugh in all the right places.(AFI Silver Theatre and Cultural Center, Silver Spring, MD)

Time Out For A Geek Out

Media_httpstaticflick_pftuw

OK, I admit it — I bought my G5 as much to tinker with as to do video editing on. And so far, the tinkering and editing are measuring about even on the pleasure meter. Just last night, I added a fourth Maxtor DiamondMax 300 gig drive via my MaxConnect hard drive expansion kit, bringing the G5’s total storage up to 1.36 terabytes, including the 160GB boot drive. Why do I need all that space? To edit video, of course.Now I just have to figure out why my optical drive has suddenly crapped out.(My dual 2.0 Power Mac G5, Brooklyn)

Happy To Line Up For A Shake

Media_httpstaticflick_hzeka

Yeah, I hate the lines in New York as much as the next person. But every now and then I remember that when I lived in the Jersey ‘burbs I used to wait in line at restaurants, too. Except in NJ, the lines were for places like El Torito, Pizzeria Uno, and Ye Fake Olde Tyme Grille — not at all like the delicious (and deadly) Shake Shack. So now I just try to enjoy the sun and the park and snap away while I wait…(Shake Shack, Madison Square Park, Manhattan)
