Totally Unauthorized

A side of the film industry most people never see.

Day two of the car stunts

I wish I could take a helicopter to work.

Say “spoiled rich actor” all you want, but if I had enough money to pay for a helicopter to get me out of sitting in traffic, I’d do it in a heartbeat – just like our actor today, who showed up for work in a helicopter (turning all of us who sat in traffic for an hour green with envy).

Good for him for having enough money to bypass the Harbor Freeway.

He also had entirely too much fun driving through the stacks of paper in the warehouse (the stacks of paper which, upon closer inspection, turned out to be giant rolls of toilet paper. I had no idea that TP came on ten foot wide rolls and got cut down. You learn something new every day, I guess).

We all had fun too – once we were lit, all we had to do all day was tell jokes and watch the car stunts.

I need more jobs like this one.

    I worked in a P&G plant that made the giant rolls of TP (they called it BRT). There were forklifts with giant clamps to carry them around but the workers would sometimes just roll them off the mill and into the warehouse. They roll very quietly, as I learned the day I nearly walked into the path of one.

    Aaron – exactly like that.

    Dan – oh, I want one!

    Anon – the rolls are nice and soft when you punch them, too!

    Musta been two-ply!
