Innovative Television

by Peter John Ross In the last 7 years or so, I love what’s happened with TV. The derivation between “TV” and “FILM” has blurred so much that some of the best cinematic works are now television shows. That’s the key word too – CINEMATIC. It seems that shows like Read more…

Sanctimonious Soliloquy

Well, we rang in the New Year last night at a party with some friends. Again, this year, I’m not too into the Holiday spirit, but playing poker & chatting for a few hours with some people I genuinely like made a big difference. My Sexy Girlfriend Veronica ™ had Read more…

Ombudsman

This is such a dead time. The weather is starting to turn cold, projects are ramping down instead of up. There’s all this crappy holiday spirit nonsense. I’m not Scrooge, but I’m not Jimmy Stewart either. I have found the season to reminisce more about retail than Christ or a Read more…

Upgradeable Affectations

Again, your faithful narrator has had a busy time in the last two weeks. I’ve been working a lot doing A/V work, and that’s not as bad as it sounds. At least I’m getting caught up on bills and even saving up for another car. That’s right, yet another catastrophe Read more…

Inaugural Directorates

Let’s get this out of the way first…. My new cats name is “VLADIMIR JACK BAUER”. We basically just call him “V” and that’s our preference here. I picked “VLADIMIR” because of a line of dialogue from the 1981 movie ARTHUR starring Dudley Moore when he says, “Can we name Read more…

Casualties of War

For those who tune into this blog for filmmaking stuff, go ahead & skip on for the next time. Today I am distraught and it’s purely personal. In our humble abode, dubbed “Rossdonia”, I have written on several occasions of Brandy’s two cats, Cousette and Spaz, a brother & sister pair Read more…

Pancakes & Parables

Last night I worked at a Hotel. I was filling in helping out my buddy so he could have a night off. I was the A/V tech on duty so that I could just baby sit a DVD player during a wedding. Excitement Central, that’s where I was last night, Read more…
