I went with Bry for a sunset/sunrise overnight shoot for this academy doc on Thursday night, and we were up at 4:30 on Friday. After work on Friday was a coworker’s going away party, so we did that (which was nice- nice to see so many folks from the company actually do something together) and then came home and vegged out on the couch for a couple hours then went to bed.
We slept in wicked late this morning and got lunch downtown. I prepped the footage Bry shot Thursday night/Friday morning and imported most of it. My laptop is overheating like crazy so I stopped for now. I read the script for this indie I’m working on this summer/fall that Bryant is shooting and popped into the skype meeting he was having about it. I also purchased a domain name for comics but have to wait until my host let’s me add another domain (I am bad at internet) before I can start working on it. I think I might work on some drawings now. So excited for the indie to start, even though Bryant is shooting it and will be away a lot for a month. Excited for sound cutting to start at work. Excited to start working on the little academy doc. Excited for my leftover buffalo tenders that are in the fridge. When are we eating dinner? Bryant is still in his meeting. Maybe we will go out for dinner. It is so fucking hot out. Maybe we will eat dinner in our air conditioned bedroom.
We had lunch with our friends Stefan and Tim on Friday, which was great (well, the company was great. The food was not). Stefan said Tim figured we would’ve taken the day off after a sunrise shoot, but Stefan knew better. I told Bry and he was like, “…Tim doesn’t know what we do, does he?”
There are definitely periods where I sit on the couch and play games on my iPhone like every night for a week. But I think most of the time, we’re just working on other stuff. Which is great. I hope we can keep the Other Work stuff going, since we’ll be without the Primary Work in nine months or so.
yo, check out ‘cat’s eye’ b/c it’s all about power in relationships and the hidden traumas of childhood, etc. lovin’ the atwood.
Ooh, sounds good. I think the element I liked in Handmaid’s Tale was the whole ‘speculative fiction’ angle and pushing things to their logical (illogical? Boom) conclusions. The power dynamics stuff are definitely in that book, too, but the “oh shit, what if this happened?” element is totally my jam.
Big question I’ve had for a long time. They keep using that phrase “Repeal and Replace,” well, replace with what? If you legitimately want to reform health care why not just attempt to fix what you believe is broken with the big ass law we already passed?
Of course the reality is they don’t want to improve health care and health care access. They want you to pay up or die. What have they done to the contrary?
I believe what you are indicating is that you were unable to find a “low cost” policy due to your preexisting condition (like myself) yet now that we have a law that tells the rest of the nation to subsidize your costs so that you can absorb a disproportional amount of health care services
without having to pay a disproportional amount of money. I do like your thinking, In fact at dinner tonight I will order two steaks & make the young couple eating hamburger pay more, you know cuz it’sonly fair - meatstuff
No. I tried to buy an insurance policy after I graduated from college, and every company denied me because of preexisting conditions. I mean I could not buy health insurance. At any price. That is what I am indicating. Also, I have a full-time job with health insurance, so I’m not asking you or anyone else to subsidize my costs at this point. Oh, well, except for my coworkers and the insurance company. Because that’s how insurance works. A large group of people pay into it, and some people will need more services and some people will need less, but they’ll all pay the same premiums.
“Fair” doesn’t exist when it comes to healthcare. It’s not “fair” that some people are born with congenital heart defects and diabetes and cancer and mental illness. It’s not “fair” that some of us have to deal with those things for our whole lives and have to worry about going bankrupt to pay for it. If you really think having to buy insurance is unfair, try being sick and uninsured for a little while.
