January 24

Media: Ken Burns’ Baseball “Top of the 10th”. The Mechanic.

Music: The New Mastersounds, but not in the way I’m used to. Imagine my surprise when Ken Burns used like 8 songs of theirs in the latest installment of his Baseball documentary.

Comedy: Nada.

Food: I ate my stew. Delightful! Ate at a joint in Atlanta I love (The Bucket Shop) and was thrilled that a friend is now the GM there. I envision spending a lot of time there.

Family: Minimal. But I got to hang a little with mom and the wife.

Work: I had to get a rental truck to move a giant desk out of storage and into the garage (saving me $80 a month) as well as pick up and assemble a couch my wife bought. Steve was super helpful in making this happen. In addition, I had to work on some legal matters (also involving Steve), update the site, and then do a screening. Long day, and I got my hand smashed in the process. Some tweaks applied to the CHUD design that hopefully streamlines things a little for folks.

Art: Nope.

Screenwriting: Nope.

Projects: After the film Renn and I made some great process on the short. Saw some poster mocks for the little horror film I was a producer on. They are very nice. Had a conference call with two collaborators and accidentally came up with the best idea ever.

Minutia: Trying to see if it’s possible to have a CHUD/GUY softball team. Trying to see if I have the time to get the President’s Day album actually done in time. looking unlikely.

Activity: Weights. Manual Labor.

Shrink’s Chair: I am not even in the middle echelon of internet writers but I’m a real guy. I’ll take that trade-off.

Looking ahead to tomorrow: The Rite CHUD screening. Oscar nonsense. New release Tuesday and I ain’t buying SHIT!
