Hey guys! A real brief update… first off, let me just say, I messed up the vlogs I shot. All three of them. I’d thought I’d save myself some time and knock them all out in evening and then edit them the next and have three vlogs ready to rock. Sadly… I tried something, thought it would work and didn’t check it after the first. Anyways… I was scrubbing the footage and noticed just how BAD it looked. It was awful. Let me tell you… it’s very difficult to use such a picky camera from the far side of a room and only have a small LCD screen telling you it looks ok. Basically, what I’m saying is, I wish I’d had a more automatic camera to do some of the work for me and remove the guessing. :/ lesson learned, moving forward.

Second! I got to go to the premier for the TV show Portlandia which is filmed in… you guessed it, Portland! That hipster filled city across the river (JK, I love Portland. Usually.) for those of you who don’t know, it’s a show that kind of pokes fun at the little quirks that make Portland great. As the slogan goes “Keep Portland Weird.” This show maintains that to the letter.

Anyways, I’m sharing this with you partly because it’s pretty cool. And also because I’ll be in an upcoming episode. I’m not going into details in this blog about how all that happened (can’t talk about it until the show airs.) but I will tell you, Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein are super nice. They were both very welcoming and helped make me feel at home while I was on their set and fumbling about the trailer.

Alright, so that’s it. I have to get to bed. I just wanted to share this with you. Be sure to check out the show. Portlandia premiers January 6th at 10pm on IFC. They showed the first two episodes at the premier, and while I loved the first season… I was dying laughing (with Fred and Carrie sneakily hiding behind me…).

Anyways, Goodnight guys. :)
