it was rad. both the hotel and the awards.

the awards are for all the ppl who make all the technologies that make film great from special effects

to computer animation to film processing to camera equipment breakthroughs – you know the reasons we secretly say wow

and so were the awards. the speeches were short. but everyone who won got to say something.

this gentleman said, “we are Pussy Riot in drag”.

i used to say if i ever got married it would be in isla vista or wrigley field, but no girl wants that.

this is something you see backstage right before you walk onto the stage: hot water, tea, and lemon so your voice is right

and a mirror for that final check
