I highly recommend Mikes Hard Lemonade mixed with a little Citron Vodka. Throw in some crushed ice and it tastes almost like a frozen lemonade. A little higher alcohol content so the buzz comes faster. Although, I guess you not ever drinking won't need that huh?

So bmack meet up update. He's dropping family off at the baseball game on the West side and then the plan is heading towards downtown/uptown for lunch and/or record shopping and/or whatever. The game starts at 1:05 pm so that all should start sometime before/around then.

I can text/call folk when I hear from Bryan. Please post again or otherwise let me know you're interested and available. And, I guess, send me a pm or email to mountmccabe at gmail with a phone number if I don't have yours.

micah & i went to matador's downtown before the symphony last week which was ok, but the only downside is they won't split checks. i've eaten at fez recently, a little more uptown, but they had mimosas which is always a plus.

I was looking for the crew that hangs out at La Grande Orange.

Great cafe (I guess you could call it that). Got a wonderful coffee and a wonderful cookie along with a nice little bird-cage candle holder.

Camelback was an amazing and really refreshing hike. My legs are killing me, but it was just what I needed.

I love the community here though. (And love the fact that all the tree's are painted for the heat. It tickles me).

I wouldnt mind moving here...or just having a small time place here...if I ever get that kind of money (lol like that'll ever happen).

I passed the polo fields on the way here and had to stop myself from getting off the high-way to visit them. Only three more weeks!

03-29-2010, 06:34 AM
Okay, so I'm less than 2 weeks away from doing my first day of production and the most bothersome thing is that I don't have any of my locations secured yet. I'm close on a couple but I need a few more. Would anybody here by chance have a house they'd let me and a film crew spend some time in (say, 6-8 hours) on a Saturday/Sunday? Exact production dates are April 10, 11, 24, and 25.

Two absolute requests: a fairly sized bathroom with a tub in it, ideally with a tub that isn't against the wall. Another is a kitchen that can pass for belonging to an Academy Award-nominated actor, with nice looking counter tops and an island on which to prepare meals.

Also, if anyone has a decently-maintained front yard that we can shoot in, particularly that meets the above requests, that would be great.

If you live more centrally based, that'd be ideal, but if not, I've got to take what I can get at this point. I can't offer any money but I'll feed you if you happen to stick around, as well as a copy of the film. Lemme know.

I have no idea if you're talking to me, but since I was talking about my climb up Camelback i'll assume you were.

Yes, I made it to the summit!
An easy hike, although I wasnt really prepared for all the actual rock climbing and wore my chucks instead of actual boots.

Was a great climb though.

Plan on doing Eagle Rock out in LA later this week, but i'll save that for another thread.

i have a pretty big bathroom with a roman tub, but it's against a wall. my kitchen isn't really nice as the appliances and cupboards are older, but there is a sort of island attached to the sink where i have barstools. that's all i got.

great to see bryan, amyzzz, john and sean!

i had a great weekend. went to the desert botanical garden on saturday after lunch with bryan. it was so beautiful; i'd never been. it's like an oasis in the city. i just love the sounds of the cottonwood trees in the wind. the butterfly exhibit was pretty cool, they loved me & my mom since we were both wearing white. i also saw a lot of the flowers that were in the garden on my walk yesterday. i want to go back when it's less crowded though. when there's a lot of people around, i don't feel like i can stop and read all the signs.

also, saw star wars symphony with micah and my friend amy on saturday night a the phoenix symphony. we had dinner before at MacAlpine's 1928 diner (http://macalpines1928.com/). i'd never been before, it was so cute! i'm not big into soda, but they had a lot of different options i'd never even heard of, including dill pickle flavouring (gross). they had an antique store next door i need to go back to.

the symphony was amazing. they opened with the 2001 space odessy music. robert moody conducted and he was a whole lot more entertaining than whoever we saw last week. they then played 4 of the 7 planets: mars, venus, uranus and jupiter. mars & jupiter were my favourite. in mars, you could definitely see how it influenced john william's imperial march. uranus was odd; it was hard to tell when it ended.

after intermission, the conductor came back out in a jedi costume with a light saber. there were costumed star wars characters walking around the stage and the audience. honestly, it was kind of distracting from the music. especially when they would turn up the house lights. but during duel of fates i believe, the conductor jumped off in the middle of the performance to join the light saber battle, that was cool. i know we got the main theme from star wars, the imperial march (:) :) :)), han and leia's theme (which i love), yoda's theme, the march of the ewoks or whatever it's called and duel of fates with a full chorus. that was my favourite of the whole night. so intense. they closed with the throne room which was great too. only other song i'd have liked to have heard was the flag parade from the end of phantom menace. great horns in that piece.

all in all, i had a wonderful time, even though the guy next to me kept singing & talking to himself. the best was that there was a screen above the conductor giving high-level recaps of the star wars plot during the show. the guy next to me kept mumbling shit like "that's not quite accurate". who cares dude, shut the fuck up. oh, and boba fett wanted a piece of this. kinda funny to have a guy staring at you in a boba fett mask.

My old company did a spring banquet at the botanical gardens. It was really nice at night and we were the only people there so we didn't have to worry about stopping and reading and taking our time. The butterfly exhibit sounds really nice though. They are the only insects that don't give me the creeps, other than ladybugs I guess.

I don't mind mosquito hawks, the big mosquito looking things that kill mosquitos, at least that is what my mother told me they were. She probably just told me that though so I would go to sleep without her having to crawl on the furniture to kill the fuckers. We use to get them all the time in Oregon.

My biggest fear having moved into an apartment is that I will end up with cockroaches in my house. I remember having them when I was 18 and we lived down in Glendale, they would spray one apartment and the fuckers will migrate over to ours. We broke a lease because they were so bad.

"The former Beatle managed to play two classic songs live for the first time on American soil in Glendale. Those songs weren't Monkberrian obscurities, either. One was "Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da," a hit from the Beatles studio-only years -- the Beatles' last real concert was four years before the band's split, so a few such songs exist. The other was Wings' "Nineteen Hundred And Eighty Five," the closing track on the group's epic Band on the Run album. "

He liked it quite a bit. I got him some bling, a John Cena chain and wrestlemania wrist bands. He made some signs and had a great time. They really put on an outstanding production in regards to lighting, sound and even some pyro on occasion and pull it off seemlessly in a stadium three times the size of the average arena.

meanwhile, Maricopa County has gone down the rabbit hole. Arpaio broke the law, so let's sue the bus company.

County given right to sue over Arpaio's $465K bus buy
by Yvonne Wingett - Mar. 29, 2010 12:50 PM
The Arizona Republic .

The questionable purchase of a $465,000 custom bus by Sheriff Joe Arpaio's department may end up in court.

The Maricopa County Board of Supervisors on Monday authorized the county the right to sue Motor Coach Industries Inc. if negotiating with the company to take the bus back fails. All but one county supervisor, Fulton Brock, voted to give the county the option to sue.

Sheriff's officials bought the bus last year to transport inmates to and from jail and court.

County officials said they want to work with the bus company to recoup the money. They believe Sheriff's officials broke state procurement laws; a county audit concluded the purchase violated state competitive-bidding requirements, county procurement code and other policies. County officials said they cannot lawfully accept title or license a bus that was illegally purchased.

Sheriff's officials have maintained the purchase was legal.

Monday's vote paves the way for the county to sue and ask a Superior Court judge to determine whether the sale was valid and legal. County officials said the Sheriff's Office would not be named in the legal action because they believe sheriff's officials did have authority to enter into the contract.

"We'd rather just give them the bus back and get a check," said County Manager David Smith. "Call it a do-over."

A call to the bus company was not immediately returned.

Sheriff's officials bought the bus with jail-enhancement funds, a special pot of money administered by the department itself. If the money is recovered, a county spokeswoman has said, the money would be returned to the fund.

Brock believes the board's decision to authorize legal action was premature. "I feel there's a better way to approach it - we haven't exhausted mediation," said Brock.

County officials have spent at least $3.2 million on attorneys and other fees over the last year and a half of fighting with each other.

Thanks for the offer, Ivy. I may have to take you up on it if nothing else comes up but from what I recall, your place is probably a little too small. And taking equipment up 3 flights of stairs will probably cause a crew mutiny.

I sometimes want to sneak in there and try it out. If you can't find any other kitchen I can talk to her and her roommate if your interested.

Well you did say you were a "greek god"

Camelback in chucks? haha nice. good view from the top there. i love that mountain. good in the summer when its less crowded. Glad you liked it to.

Oh ya that's right....to be fair I was high for 80% of my stay this past weekend :P

Ya it was fantastic, and suprisingly my chucks didnt kill my feet (although as I said it probably would have been wayyyyyyy better in actual hiking boots. Next time I guess!)

Im depressed; I just went to zillow.com and found out my house is worth about half of what I owe on it.

Half.

In other news, you're stupid if you have the money and don't buy a house right now. There are houses in my 'hood selling for $80k. The payment on it would be like $400 a month.

It'll bounce back. as long as you can keep up your mortgage payment, the only thing that makes sense is to sit tight and wait. ditching now amounts to a "buy high, sell low" strategy

unless you want a dog barking all over your audio, I am a bad choice.

You probably live too far away anyway. People are scoffing at the prospect of driving out to our house, which isn't anywhere near the drive it is to yours. (I know 'cause I followed you home after the McDowell Mountain Music Festival last year. Your neighborhood is really nice.)


My sister has a great kitchen with an island, it is a house so there is plenty of room. No big bathtub though, her roommate does have an awesome shower though. I sometimes want to sneak in there and try it out. If you can't find any other kitchen I can talk to her and her roommate if your interested.

Thanks, Audra. I had a really productive meeting with the guy who's lending us his camera today (and who will be serving as director of photography on the first two days of production). He's going to talk to his parents about letting us use their house. I may still hit you up on talking to your sister, though. Will keep that in mind for the next week.

Today was one of those days that makes me wish I didn't have a normal day job. I had the day off from work and just spent it working on my movie. Got the donkey secured and made a decision on another location, then finished the day with a 3 hour meeting. I wish that could be my everyday job.

Keeping up the mortgage payment isn't going to be a problem (knock on wood). We both do plenty well enough. It's a bit too bad to know we're probably locked in here for a few years, but if a movie takes off, perhaps we can absorb the hit.

Speaking of movies and money, care to be my executive producer, Tom? I'm going to keep on hitting you up till I get something of you, man. Fair warning. (Notice the lack of a smiley when I would otherwise be inclined to utilize one due to my knowledge that you dislike them.)

i am a rule abider. i believe in rules and when i break them i will suffer the consequences. that is a whole lot easier than me constantly worrying who's at my door and whether or not someone walking towards me and saying hi is going to trick me into getting served.

i paid off two of those last year, twice. it was retarded i was going 67 and 66 and i completely spaced the cameras. it sucked, but it was a whole lot better for me to just pay it than to be paranoid for months.

For me it’s a matter of principle though. It’s not right. It’s just another chip away from our civil liberties. It’s this now, then something else. Then there are cameras everywhere watching everyone. Then "why do we even make cars that go over the speed limit" and on and on. You have to stand up for what’s right and not just march along like zombies just accepting everything that’s handed down. Especially when it is something that is clearly motivated by money.

Which liberty is that? The right to break the law?

All speeding (and red light) cameras are doing is more effectively and efficiently (well, that's the theory anyway) enforcing the laws put in place by our elected officials. It's like people do actually want speeding laws in place, but then they want to be able to break them when they can get away with it. It makes no sense. Why not just vote to eliminate speed limits altogether?

Reasonable and prudent. How does a camera answer that? It cant.

How about we put a camera in your front yard and when you water your grass on a no water day then they send you a ticket. What if that camera gets a view of inside where you just tore that horrible do not remove tag from your mattress and they send you a ticket for that. Where do you draw the line?

Read carefully. Only the purchaser is to remove the tag. So if he bought it, he can remove it.

As for you Arizonians, fuck your cameras trying to catch me speeding. Put them on the street corners and keep them off the freeway.

Where do you draw the line?

The fact that the answer for this isn't a simple one does not mean that we have to go to an extreme to make it easy.

Cameras on the freeway to catch you speeding does not mean that they're going to put cameras inside your house. You're throwing in a bunch of steps that we can vote/argue against as they come up. Which is to say: I don't want the government putting cameras in my house but that has nothing at all to do with them putting cameras on the freeways that they put there for me to drive on.

I'd be grumpy but fine paying a ticket if I were going over 70, but at 66 I wouldn't pay it, and you'd win that if you got a summons because they can't guarantee that it is calibrated exactly. All those speed checks have to give you a 2-3 mph leeway because they can't guarantee 100% accuracy.

I think since then they changed the speed limits. I drive to glendale regularly and it's 65 from Tempe all the way to the Glendale stadium now on the I-10 but it didn't used to be. It used to go back and forth like you say. I believe the limit on the 17 or 51 near the cameras is still 55 though.

If you don't live in Arizona you do not have to pay the ticket. They can't enforce against out of staters. The statute clearly states they have to serve you in person. In other words a process server. All the out of staters who get flashed get a letter but if you don't pay there is nothing they can do and it will be dismissed. The law is clear.

not if you take the southern route on the 17. that area is 55 by downtown. that's where i got my first ticket. but yes, the area by the stack also used to be 55 and i got a ticket for going over 80 there (but they wrote it at 70 so i could go to driving school) after a fight with a boyfriend many years ago.

i know i speed. i can't stop and thus will pay the fines as i get them. places to go! people to see!

I've already done my taxes. Now that bankruptcy is out of the way there is no reason to hide from Tio Samuel. He is in fact my amigo at this point because I get paid very few pesos. In fact this year I got my biggest return ever. Over $400! It's spent on music festivals.

Don't tell me you've never seen your girlfriend dance.


hey, at least i actually get out there, jump around and actually move my entire body. i don't just stand on something tall and wave my arms. i never claimed to be some sort of professional dancer, i just like to actually move to music. i may not be good, but i certainly have fun, sweat my ass off and don't give a flying fuck what anyone around me thinks about it.

2% food tax starts today in AZ. This was imposed to save over 500 police and firefighter jobs.

http://www.azfamily.com/outbound-feeds/yahoo-news/2-Phoenix-food-tax-kicks-in-today-89681892.html

It's worth noting this could be changed in the next several months of budget discussions. Voters are continuously being asked for their input on the budget as well. So write, call and be heard.

what time would a subheadliner take the stage at rhythm room normally?

faxman75
04-01-2010, 10:11 AM
From my experience things generally start a bit later at Rhythm Room. It can be pretty random though. Doors at 7:30 tells me you aren't getting music until maybe 8:30 or later. Meaning busdriver could be in the 10pm hour. Just a prediction though.

that'd be about right for one of his type of shows though. when he headlined at the last 3 shows i've seen, he went on at midnight.

so 10p sounds about right. would that sound right for rhythm room? headliner at about 1130-midnight and go til 130-2a? i've never been to rhythm room, so not sure how they handle their set times...or how late they like to run shows.

mountmccabe
04-01-2010, 11:59 AM
I think I've been to only one show at the Rhythm Room that went past 12:30 am, a SxSW festival-type show that had like 8 artists performing.

Also Deer Tick's probably the only band I've seen there that's played ~2 hours. I'd consider an hour and a half a long show there.

Also 7:30 doors says to me that Happy Chichester would probably start 8-8:30 and go half an hour to 45 minutes; Busdriver would start 9-9:40 and go for 45 minutes to maybe an hour.

Things could be pushed back and scrunched up if the artists don't actually need that long of a set break but, still, if I wanted to catch Busdriver I'd show up before 9 pm.

faxman75
04-01-2010, 12:05 PM
The datarock show I attended earlier this year went past midnight. The opener didn't go on until around 10pm even though doors were at 8. I was pissed that night sitting around forever. The delays seemed to be due to the band smoking and socializing for as long as possible. I even heard them outside at one point debate starting or having another beer and they opted for another beer.

St. Vincent on the other hand was very prompt and didn't get anywhere near the midnight hour.

sin213
04-01-2010, 01:57 PM
yeah, i hate getting to shows too early and having to stand around for hours listening to crappy openers. every once in a while i'll be impressed by an opener and was glad i got there early...but that is very rare. plus, i hate paying $3 for water or $5 for beer for a few hours...

i'll probably plan to get down to that show by about 830 or so. at worst, we'll be sittin around for 1.5 hrs or will walk in on him already in progress.

Rhythm Room has free self serve water dispensers. And if you can/want to drink PBR, $2 cans. They do have draft beer including Kiltlifter and, I think, Guinness.

Also who wants to bet me a (non-Coachella) beer that Busdriver goes on before 9:45?
