"A guilty conscience needs to confess. A work of art is a confession." Albert Camus

Not-So-Sunny Sunday

Today, my team & I worked on a new project for my video class. This time, we have two different team mates – boys – because we were told we could only be a five-person team – and also, we avoided joining other people we…… don’t like much. We were being elitists, I think. But hey, better than being teamed up with my very own stalker-boy. Urgh.

Each of us were assigned a different position as a production team. I was on camera, choosing angles and the right composition of the picture. But our self-proclaimed director thought I was incompetent with technology and decided to push me aside so she could do it instead. I tried about ten times to get my job back. I did everything I could but somehow, the camera always fell back to her. Being my bad week , I was obviously not happy.  Our light bulb was exploded before we could even do anything to it, our boom mike rod broke, and everything was a bundle of mess. So naturally, I didn’t want to make things worse and we ended up not arguing. I let her have it her way. Because I’m a peace keeper. I’m not territorial. If something doesn’t go my way, that’s fine. It ain’t the end of the world. But that doesn’t mean I won’t be pissed off.

We luckily got to finish the last scene (It’s a 30-second film) before the rain could get worse enough to damage the camera. We always get rain when we’re shooting! It’s frustrating. It didn’t make my day any better. But you know what did? Led Zeppelin. I got some free CD’s from the library. 4 albums of Zeppelin. I came home, locked myself in my room, and blasted it up. And now, here I am, telling you about it. Because this music rocks.

My mother actually walked in on Dazed & Confused, looking very surprised. “That stuff still exists?! Wow.”

me: “It’s genius, mom. I don’t listen to that crap rappers say about fucking their girlfriends’ aunts.”

mom: “Man, we only liked this kind of music because we were high all the time.”

me: “Nah, weed only makes it better.”

mom: “what?”

me: “oh, nothing, um- what does being high mean?”

She laughed. She knows I’ve smoked weed before. Reminiscing the good old days I never actually witnessed in person.

By the way, If you were wondering about that picture on top – it’s a LZ cover. Pretty sweet photography, I think.

Anyways. I’m going to eat super and then watch the new season of The Amazing Race. We love the Jerry Bruckheimer reality shows (he also produced survivor. And randomly, Pirates of the Caribbean, and CSI. ). The Amazing Race is like family reunion. Except we get to laugh at people struggle or argue with people they “love”. Traveling across the world for money causes a lot of tension between a couple.
