well, the wedding i shot went as well as could be expected. the last wedding i shot was around 8 years ago i think. the footage is looking nice so i think my friend and her wife will be happy with it.
i hurt my back this past weekend, doing absolutely nothing. i'm starting middle age off on a good step, heh.
at first i was really paranoid i had done irreversible damage, but a few days later and i seem to be on the mend, its just going very slowly. we don't bounce back like we used to.
i always like to say 'you're only as old as you feel' because most of the time i feel like i'm still in my 20's. now after this back episode, i feel like i'm 100. once i'm healed up, it'll be time to get back into the gym on a regular basis. straight yokeage.
the rhythm roulette video we made is doing pretty well online, and has seemed to generate a good amount of discussion in the comments. i'm being diplomatic by calling it discussion. hip hop fans can be very opinionated on hip hoppy things, so some people were very concerned with our rhythm roulette video, even tho there are hundreds of people making their own versions on youtube. some people liked it, some people didn't, but i'm glad they all watched. it was fun to create, and it's fun to see what people take away from it, good or bad.
i'm locked in to shoot two more episodes with Grussle and J-$crilla, both very dope DC producers. I'd love to get one with Mark Henry and Kev Brown to really round out the selection. I've been reaching out to Mass Appeal because I really want to produce these episodes for them, but if they aren't interested, I will release them on my own, and call it a Rhythm Roulette Tribute or something. I'm not sure how they curate their list of producers to work with, but DC has some heavy hitters, and I know other cities also have some great talent bubbling just under the surface that would love a shot at RR. it really is a show concept that can can be taken in a lot of directions.
i'm supposed to meet up with the homie Fleetwood this week to discuss a new web series idea I want to start producing. it's a simple, but unique idea i've been sitting on for about 3 years at this point, and i don't want to sit on it anymore, so we are just going to start making it, and honing the concept as we continue to produce episodes. i'll fill you in more on that shortly.
i'm off to the doctor to have him tell me what i already know: i'm getting old, my core is weak and i'm soft. wish me luck, and make something dope this week 'all.
