Hey guys! Welcome back to this episode of recap. Since we last spoke, I’ve been busy again. Quick trip to visit some friends down south. Some editing that… will be covered next week. I filmed some stuff for the rose festival and pretty much watched all of the DollHouse series and season 1 of Mad Men.

Last Week I took a quick trip to Western Oregon University. A friend was performing (Tim Lundy, also does music and SFX for several of my videos) and another friend was growing a year older. The night was relatively low key. A few drinks at a bar, some good music and a chance to catch up with a few familiar faces.

It was nice and relaxing. But short lived. Upon arriving home I crawled into bed and slept for the better part of the day.

I spent a few hours at the spirit mountain casino filming a short “Press Conference” and luncheon to announce the change of the Grand Floral parade to the Spirit Mountain Casino Grand Floral Parade. Huge change. It wasn’t a technically difficult shoot. But I got to make pretty pictures with a Sony EX1. Two 32 gig cards. It acted like a practice shoot for a couple videos we’re shooting this weekend. I’m very excited to tell you all about it. but I don’t want to spoil the surprise. Meh I’ll talk about it a little.

Alright, Mad Men season 1 wasn’t so bad. I’m kind of bored though. Great sets, costumes, acting and its an amazing look at the period. But that’s it. I’m not hooked. I don’t care about the characters. Mrs. Draper’s a hottie thought. I said I’d give it more time. Hopefully it lives up to its reputation.

Dollhouse however, did what always gets me. it started an apocalypse (Terminator 2 style). Haha sorry, Joss Whedon is my hero and I’m a little biased. That’s what got me watching the show. 3 out of 4 of his shows revolve around the end of the world. Firefly probably would have given the chance. I need to add “shaking hands with Joss” to the Bucket List.

The show takes a lot of heat and the plug was pulled after 2 seasons. I’m almost done with the show. And I’m heartbroken it’s ending with so much potential. I highly recommend you check it out. It’s instant Queable on Netflix. And check out all of Joss’ stuff. For Serious.

I may be judged strongly for the previous comments. Please let me know your opinion in the comments. And if it fuels your fire, I’ll be buying Dollhouse on Bluray.

As for this weekend, my friend Kyle is coming to town to do some climbing, filming and stuff. We’ve got an action scene to shoot Saturday evening, and possibly an episode of the Ninjas if there’s time. All in all, should be a good time. But why am I excited? We’ll still be using the EX1. I’m excited for this because t’s a much nicer camera than my canon 7d. Especially for action scenes. This weekend should be a lot of fun. And extremely productive.
