Anybody remember me? Sorry it's been so long....something about cooking for 43 at 5 different dinners here, cards, wrapping, mailing packages and 3 weeks of decorating. It was great! So to relieve my Post Christmas Traumatic Stress Syndrome, I put a ladder up from my library side today and reached in as far as I could under the eaves and managed to pull out a box labelled "Film Stuff." That's a very scientific technical term, I know. So the good news is that there is a lot of Magnum stuff in there. The bad news is that, other than this photo of these 3 studly 80's guys in their shorts, everything is unfortunately in slide form. The other good news is that there is lots of stuff I can put on ebay and maybe make enough money to buy a slide scanner for my Mac. The ones you see for $99 everywhere (I even bought one once) only work on PC's. And no, I'm not sending you the slides so you can scan them! So there will be some new posts of what looks like quite a few sets I haven't shown. You may have to identify most of them as the slides aren't labelled. Some boxes say "Luther Gillis Den, Guesthouse," "Whorehouse," "T.C.'s LR & Office" and some blank ones. I think there still should be more slides somewhere, but I could only reach in so far. The real access to that space is full of stuff. There is also paper work, stationery, and even an asset list of set dressing for a year among other things.
The man who bought my Magnum jacket a few months ago would be amused to know that instead of the jacket at Christmas, we received this card. It almost seems strange to see it say "Merry Christmas" on it. I forgot the jackets took a long time and we were given this card instead. A little "Magnum humor" (very little). The other is a page that we were given (at least mine seems to be an original) of an ad Tom took out in Variety magazine. In case you don't know, no one ever says "Thank You" in this business. I always say that fact you haven't been fired yet is the only thanks that you will ever get. Tom was different and was very appreciative.
So, not the most exciting post, but that's probably going to be it for my inagural blog year of 2008. I'm going to be away from my computer until January 12 and will start posting again soon after. I really appreciate all of your encouragement regarding this blog. May all of my good karma pay off soon with a job in 2009!
The picture is of my crew members, Al on the left and Russ on the right, and me with the great legs in the middle. It was taken outside my office. Tom's office was off on the right, next door to mine.
I will look forward to posting more next year as long you keep enjoying them!
Hauole Makahiki Hou!
