I don’t want to spend much more time or energy on recent events here, aside from saying that I appreciate what everyone’s had to say in response. I’m very grateful to those of you who find what I have to say not only interesting enough to read, but also to respond to.
Ok and one other thing. I know what it’s like to post on a board or something and have my comments misinterpreted or reacted to in a way I didn’t expect. When that happens, my instinct is to get mad and write a nasty rebuttal. I don’t think I’ve ever actually done it, or at least not to any really mean extent, but I know that it’s frustrating on both sides of this kind of dialogue, if you can call it that. Point is, stuff happens, let’s move one, and Dwight you’re still welcome here. Being able to disagree and even argue and move on is a skill we’re all pretty terrible at, understandably, but in the end it’s just healthier to put things in perspective and move on.
In response to the person who asked whether I’m still doing Sonic commercials…yes! In fact I’m going to shoot more next week. A couple of months ago we actually shot some on the patio instead of the minivan, but I don’t think any will air as it was more of a test idea. What seemed like a delightful novelty at first – being out in the fresh air, not wearing a seatbelt – soon turned into a real pain-in-the-heyho as street noise, bugs, wind, and curious onlookers became factors. So don’t look for those patio spots anytime soon.
