It's all a little blue.

Ahhhh weekend. Where did you go? Weekend? Oi! Weekend, are you listening to me? Oh, of course you're not, personalising questions to days of the week is a foolhardy quest. They may have personalities but it's not like they can sit down and have a conversation with you. Except Tuesday, but let's not talk about Tuesday, that dude is boring. It's true. Nothing has ever, not in the history of the world, occurred on a Tuesday. Cause no-one wants to talk to that boring git.

But the weekend, if it could talk, would be an eloquent speaker, a stalwart expounder of the truth one moment and a prevaricator the next. All to finely weave inexorably enjoyable stories of merriment or woe, wonder or worriment, wankers or waifs, or any combination there within so that we may sit awhile, relax and bask in the simple pleasure that is the weekend.

My weekend, for instance, would tell you a story of... damn... with an intro like I need a good story. Oh well, my weekend wasn't that exciting. I did finally manage to finish setting up my blue-screen studio. Oh Joy!

Not an accurate representation of my studio.
Mine is infinitely better - or possibly the opposite of that statement.

I also built myself a funky stool to go into my studio. It too is blue. So elegant that I find it rather reminiscent of Pablo's blue period. Yes, that beautiful.

Not an accurate representation of my stool. (HA! Stool!)
Mine is infinitely better, yeah, OK, this is true. I built it, how could it not be?

I'll post some real pictures of my setup after I've had my chroma-key drapes ironed. They're too creased to use at the moment. Anyone want to volunteer? It's only 30 square metres (322.8 square feet) of fabric. Oh go ooooon, you know you want to! Fine. Be that way. You and your best friend Tuesday can bugger off and have an 'exciting' talk about indigenous farming techniques of the South American Quispillaccta people instead. I just be here. By myself. Ironing.

Oh yeah, serious-like, everyone had a good weekend? I really enjoyed mine.

Take: 22

Why are ozzies and pommies so worried that we yanks will twist their wordage into something nasty? We wouldn't do something like that. We are honest good-standing Dicks.

Hey that stool is terrific! Can you make me one?? can you???!!

Well my weekend was bobbins... spent it spread over a lap top
..erm..working...tap tap tapping away, my mind is now numb..my fingers are mere stubs..

But I think I can manage to iron the 'Chroma-key Drapes' for you!

tara for now!

What the? Those photos were a perfect April Fool's Day Joke. I saw the first one, of the pristine studio with the RAWKIN' camera (I'm a music video star now, I can use words like that.) anyway... I saw the studio photo with the CAMERA and I nearly leapt up, packed my bags and booked a ticket for Australia.

Ahhh... to have a nice studio and a nice camera...

When will see the actual Studio of Rich? The actual STOOL of Rich? (Well... I don't need an actual stool sample, we can take care of that later, for now I simply want a photo...)

Enquiring minds want to know!

Oh BHip, The Brits were the ones who invented bawdry word play. We're not worried about it. I just found it terribly amusing to say, 'Hey, look at my stool!'

I'm giggling as I type. I'm real mature.

Now, be a good standing dick and get us a couple of drinks from the bar.

Hey Melanie

Sorry, my stool (giggles)isn't nearly so flash looking. It's a rectangular wooden stool with four legs, a blue rectangular seat, and painted blue. I think it's wonderful though.

You can iron the Chroma-key drapes... really? Even after being spread over a key board all weekend. (giggles)

Well, get your stubby fingers over here then... wait, where are you... damn... getting them ironed at a drycleaners is probably cheaper than the airfare. Thanks for the offer though.

Oh Monkey, I'm sorry I got you so excited... wait, no I'm not! My studio is nearly that fine. Not quite so wide, but my drapes are wider than the chroma-key paper depicted (Pfft, Chroma-key paper).

And that camera's a piece of non-digital, standard definition, playback in black and white without a split, clunky non-interchangeable lens', Betacam shit. Just my humble opinion. Although I own one of these I can get any camera to suit the purpose. I've played with these... drrooooooooooool!

Glad you're impressed JLee, I'd hate to see your trouser explosion when you find out I have one in green too!

Oh Monkey, I'm serious... there's plenty of better cameras than that in the world. Although, I do run into the problem of my current camera not picking up enough spatial data to do chroma-key properly. Betacam is wonderful for that.

I've been fantasizing about upgrading to one of Sony's new H-Def production cameras. But, you know, I could probably use the 10G elsewhere...

Hey L>t!

Yeah, I'm looking forward to playing with it a lot more. I'll probably have to upgrade my software before I get truly outstanding results but it's fun to play with. I already have friends saying things like, 'Can you make me fly?'. It's all too cute. But why not! It's good practice.

Camera Porn!

My cameraman (um... camera woman) uses a little Canon MiniDV that she bought for under $300.00

She once had a better camera, but it came to a bad end with a bottle of warm orange soda. She cried. I could not console her.

Those cameras are lovely, but she could never hold one of them and me at the same time, so all this dreaming is for naught.


I need a moment.

Indeed! That's why you need a dedicated Cameraperson Monkey. I would suggest Calzone but he'd never take the focus off your delectable hoohah.

I can appreciate your camera troubles, true story, I was once standing within 3 feet of a $570,000 digital film camera when one of the tripods legs collapsed. I dove underneath it so that it landed on my stomach. The camera was not hurt. I was the toast of the studio for 3 weeks until the Matrix guys ran the camera over with a truck... on purpose!

Lessons: 1. Equipment gets broken; and 2. Never put a large camera on a tripod, always use purpose designed dollies.

You and Arthur Dent have a lot in common, except he never could get the hang of Thursdays.

Squid, Thursday is Tuesday pretty more slutty cousin.

Arthur Dent and I also both love Vogon poetry;

See, see the Tuesday sky
Marvel at its big puce depths.
Tell me, Squid do you
Wonder why the moose ignores you?
Why its foobly stare
makes you feel like Thursday's bitch.
I can tell you, it is
Worried by your blargity facial growth
That looks like
cold cuts and beer.
What's more, it knows
Your mufti potting shed
Smells of brain.
Everything under the big Tuesday sky
Asks why, why do you even bother?
You only charm mustards and occasionally a mild chilli sauce.
