Totally Unauthorized

A side of the film industry most people never see.

How I’m spending my down time.

Saturday found me on a wild goose chase for road bike tires.

The bike I normally ride is a mountain bike but the other day, I was investigating an abandoned house with a friend of mine and, on the back patio, found a Montgomery Ward 10-speed from 70’s – it was covered in dust and in need of some work, but I’ve been wanting a road bike and haven’t wanted to spend the money. The problem is that the bike’s tires are super skinny and these days, the only bikes that use 1 3/8″ tires are high-end racing bikes with appropriately priced accessories.

I’m determined not to spend more than I absolutely have to on a bike that – with a lot of work – could possibly one day be called a rideable piece of shit.

Saturday night I went to see a good friend who’s been out of the country for a year and a half working on a documentary in South America – I’d missed her and was very happy to see her again (and glad that she got back safe). We hung out, drank wine, had dinner, caught up, and had a great visit.

So far I’ve scrubbed the stove, flipped the mattress, caught up on all the blogs that I love to read and never have time for, have watched some DVD’s and turned in my draft to the magazine editor (and I’ve not heard back from her – that’s a good sign. When they hate it, they write back immediately).

I’m hearing rumors of a possible music video later this week, but we’ll see.

    Who’s you podiatrist in Santa Monica? I live in Culver City and mine is in Burbank! Too far to slog all the way there and he’s only open during the week. Not good for a fellow worker bee (I’m in the Prop Dept.)

    Thanks for the info.
