This Week’s Dose of Dangle

Not much time for this week’s Dose. I’m on the road in an hour to LA for a graphic recording gig at USC. It came out of nowhere; I have to remember to ask how they found me. Monday we finished the shoot for that whiteboard animation thing. It went well and I really enjoyed the people I worked with. They might have more animations in the future which would be great. I have proposals to write for potential clients for making more of those videos. Last week I had nothing, now I’m up to my ears in work. I know the client I’ve been working for today will email me with changes five minutes before I need to leave for the airport. I just know it.

I’m going to Detroit next week. I had a free flight from all the rewards I’ve been stacking up. Going to see Geoffie and my pals, Hank and Gordy. Three guys I’ve known for thirty years. Gordy’s delivering pizzas in Florida, Hank is retired from the City of Ann Arbor with a sweet pension so he goes to the gym and sits in the hot tub every day, and Geoffie, as previously mentioned, is going for a mental health disability. Maybe I’ll see Mike Cole too, an equally old friend who has decided he’s had enough of Geoff. It’s a three day visit, but Michigan gets boring after about an hour so it’ll be fine. I have an ex-girlfriend there too but she always makes a point of letting me know how unimportant and meaningless our time together was, so I won’t bother to look her up.

I saw Kite Runner. It was faithful to the book and very well done. I’d recommend it. It’s heartbreaking. Also saw the opera, Aida. I like the opera because it's a cross between a ballgame and a musical. Verdi is good.
