I've spent years working in edit suites - with some of THE most powerful visual tools at my finger tips. I'm just glad I don't work with clients in that environment today. (99.9% of my editing takes place by myself these days. And no, it has nothing to do with what deodorant I use. )
This kind of stuff in movies and TV shows must make editors, stuck in edit suites with clients, a little crazy [via Adobe's John Nack - original here]:
Client: "How come they can do it on CSi but you can't do it here? Especially with how much money I'm being charged per hour!"
George (2nd from the left) is one of my closest male buddies. We became good friends on a trip to South Africa in 1996. We then went on to spend way too much time laughing together - whether in Pittsburgh, Toronto or points beyond. (And we worked together 50% of the time from 2002 - 2004 at the church where the above was recently recorded.)
George, and Baritone player/hilarious individual, Warren Yeckel both studied with Canadian saxaphonist Paul Brodie while doing their music degrees @ Duquesne in Pittsburgh.
George has a very good "smooth jazz" Christmas album available here or on iTunes. It plays throughout the Christmas season at our place. (His other albums are also worth checking out.)
A number of the Kinnons will be descending on the Furlows this time next week. And we are looking forward to it. Hope you enjoy the tunes above.
*Saxamaphone is what GP (Guinea Pig) called a sax on the multi-award winning kids' series, Once Upon a Hamster. (We won some of those awards for our work on that show.) GP's word has gotten stuck in my head.
And Jesus said unto them, "And whom do you say that I am?"
"You are the totaliter aliter, the vestigious trinitatum who speaks to us in the modality of Christo-monism.”
"You are he who heals our ambiguities and overcomes the split of angst and existential estrangement; you are he who speaks of the theonomous viewpoint of the analogia entis, the analogy of our being and the ground of all possibilities.”
"You are the impossible possibility who brings to us, your children of light and children of darkness, the overwhelming roughness’ in the midst of our fraught condition of estrangement and brokenness in the contiguity and existential anxieties of our ontological relationships.”
“You are my Oppressed One, my soul's shalom, the One who was, who is, and who shall be, who has never left us alone in the struggle, the event of liberation in the lives of the oppressed struggling for freedom, and whose blackness is both literal and symbolic.”
And Jesus replied, "Huh?"
This cracked me up. How easy it is to get trapped in our own words and concepts — especially the complex ones — and miss out on the experience of what's actually happening. [link emphasis added]
I found this very amusing this morning. Too many folk are sent off to seminary to learn how to lead - and this, only slight exaggeration, is what ends up being produced.
As Roger notes, this humour could well be applied to many fields - not just those of the seminary.
Now I need to go and get my totaliter aliter. One never knows when it might come in handy.
