All About My Mother

At the Old Vic Theatre in London is playing the stage adaptation of Pedro Almodovar's oscar winning film "All About My Mother". The reviews are generally positive, and with Diana Rigg in the cast, it'll be worth a trip across the pond.

Debt Ceiling

"U.S. debt stood at about $5.6 trillion at the start of Bush's presidency."
Remember that trillion dollar surplus Clinton left the USA? I hope everyone enjoyed their $400 checks Bush sent them in 2002.
After six years of Bush, "The Senate voted 53-42 to raise the debt ceiling to $9.815 trillion, the fifth increase in the U.S. credit limit since President George W. Bush took office in January 2001."
He will have doubled the debt by the time he leaves office. He's racing the dollar downwards as he ends the American Century.

New Gondry

The Motorola ad we did with Michel Gondry a few months ago is finally available online. It was a tough shoot for the art department and we shot long hours but the Gondry dream is there.
On the official site, there are stills and downloads of the the commercial and a good making of. Although there is no real technical discussion of the spot with Ellen. In photo #1, that's my butt in the foreground.
He used one of the dancers from "Be Kind Rewind" to play the part of the robot/drummer.
We start a new project with Gondry soon. In two weeks when he returns from his work in Japan, we'll be doing a Bjork video with him. The concept is crazy and wild and will be very fun.
