As I type this, two DirectTV guys are on our roof. On purpose. We’ll see how that pans out.
It was a fruitful weekend of shows; we put in a lot of new stuff, most of which is going well and just getting better every time. Last night (Sunday) was the ETC opening, though by the time we finished our set and got notes, the official festivities had ended. It was a strange feeling to sense all the excitement in the building for their opening night, while still struggling through the process on our side. But that’s the circle of life, or some other Elton John song. As soon as our show ended I ran over to catch the last 45 seconds or so of their closing number; it made me excited to open our show (eventually), but it also made me realize how much work we have ahead of us.
After celebrating with the ETC cast and other friends last night, I was awakened at 7:30 this morning to the soothing sounds of our parking area being paved. I’m not sure why paving requires a jackhammer, but I’m not in the paving business, so what do I know?
I’m off to Phoenix tomorrow for another Sonic shoot. While I still worry a little about missing three days here, I have to admit that it’ll be nice to take a break. And now I’ll actually only be missing two days of rehearsal, since we moved our Thursday rehearsal to Friday. Antoine’s missing a couple of days too, since he’s filming two more episodes of Prison Break (he did one a few weeks ago, which I believe aired last week…but having no TV, I can’t back up that statement). So on Friday I’ll be back and he’ll be back and hopefully we’ll pick up where we left off.
