Burning Man 2014 – The Man Burns Longtime!

Took the week off posting to the blog, but I’ve been armchair surfing the Burning Man Festival in the Nevada desert all week. Last night the Man burned, and smoldered, and smoked, and then finally fell.

Burning Man 2014 - Great Pic!

THE USTREAM WEBCAST COVERAGE SUCKED HARD!!! (and “F*ck your day!” if you think otherwise) YES I’M A CRITIC! And I’m going to trash the Ustream cast.

Someone suggested that if I wanted better coverage I should go out to the desert. I don’t disagree, and it would be really cool to be there, but alas I’m stuck here in Los Angeles sharing the experience with about 14000 people online (at peak viewing) and the camera operator doesn’t know how to focus the HD camera. There were 100% Technical Problems including not enough bandwidth and choppy streaming, MAJOR AUDIO PROBLEMS, loss of picture, loss of stream, terrible picture in picture that distracted from the burn, ZERO CREATIVITY!, and terrible camera technique. Learn how to FOCUS!

BEST MOMENT: At one point the picture cut to the guy operating the stream, a bearded hipster in coveralls, he looked up from the keyboard and saw that he was live on the web, made a great “surprise” face and then immediately switched the stream back. I hope someone got a screen shot of the guy’s video selfie, so we can post it!

Okay, so there you go. thanks to everyone who made the webcast happen, we really appreciate your effort, but unfortunately EPIC FAIL!

Burning Man 2014 – The Man Burns!

I watched the webcast and wasn’t the only person who thought the coverage sucked.

And here’s the big kicker: It took over an hour for The Man to burn. There were fireworks, and a great conflagration, and then another 45 minutes or more of “smoldering man”, “standing man” and “boring man” before the effigy actually collapsed.

A much better burn happened on Friday afternoon when they burned the “Embrace” art! There are great pictures and cool video online of the fire. Check it out!

Random Pics of Los Angeles (part one)

Random Pics of Los Angeles (part one)

Had a meeting in Santa Monica yesterday, so I made the drive and took some cool pics. I wanted to cruise to Malibu, but there was major construction and a “traffic delay” on PCH (Pacific Coast Highway). Thought I’d share some of the pics I took plus a few others from other trips that I haven’t posted that are also interesting.

Here are some (hence the part one) in no particular order or narrative:

Very early! We had a 6pm dinner reservation at Patina Rooftop Grill, so we were allowed in  before they opened the house to the public.  I took a couple pictures of the empty Bowl:

On The Menu: Ahi tuna poke, caesar salad, bread & butter, BBQ grilled shrimp, Tillamook mac’n’cheese, classic cheesecake with berries and whipped cream, a coke, and a double espresso. (Made steak the night before and had a steak sandwich for breakfast, so I went with the tuna and shrimp starters and mac’n’cheese side instead of the steak entree.

“HANDS UP! DON’T SHOOT!”

WARNING: I’m going to talk politics, civil rights, racism, police brutality, abuse of power, abuse of power under color of authority, murder, First Amendment, and personal freedom in this post. If you don’t like it. Don’t read it.

GRAPHIC IMAGE! African-American Teenager Michael Brown Killed by Caucasian Police Officer in Ferguson, Missouri. (Do you think this image should be censored on CNN?)

The Constitution, the First Amendment and Personal Freedom are under attack!

“We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.” – the Preamble of the Constitution

Unarmed Man v. St. Louis County Police: "Hands Up! Don't Shoot!" Ferguson MO

Unarmed Man v. St. Louis County Police: “Hands Up! Don’t Shoot!” Ferguson, Missouri 2014

I learned from the last presidential election, that sharing politics on the internet is a good way to lose “friends” and “followers” who might not align with the politics that are shared.

However, as I followed the events in Ferguson, Missouri yesterday and into the night, I was left asking WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA?

The First Amendment of the Constitution prohibits any law abridging freedom of speech, infringing on freedom of the press, interfering with right to peaceably assemble or prohibiting petitioning for a redress of grievances. (and there’s also something about religion too)

“Article I – Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.” (The First Amendment)

After 50 years – Progress? St. Louis County Police in Ferguson, Missouri v. unarmed protesters

I watched racist police in camouflage uniforms and body armor attack unarmed protesters and journalists. They were teargassed, fired at with rubber bullets, attacked with high tech military weapons, intimidated by heavily armed police, assaulted and arrested for recording the strong-arm tactics and activities of law enforcement.

Missouri and St. Louis County, your police stormtrooper tactics are a national disgrace!

From the Washington Post: reporter-wesley-lowery-gives-account-of-his-arrest: “As they took me into custody, the officers slammed me into a soda machine, at one point setting off the Coke dispenser. They put plastic cuffs on me, then they led me out the door.”

The mainstream television news media was absent and the reports from network news was skewed, twisted and voiced without knowledge of the actual facts. Only MSNBC was present on the scene and providing live coverage. While the network morning shows were featuring weather, traffic, diet advice and Anne Hathaway and CNN and FOX were bending the truth, MSNBC was providing a factual accounting of POLICE ABUSE IN AMERICA.

And while journalists were ordered out of the area, attacked, assaulted and arrested, reports and video were coming in real time on Twitter and Livestream showing the truth.

The iPhone is mightier than the corporate news media! Thank you MSNBC and Twitter.

Robin Williams – RIP?

Don’t try suicide!
It doesn’t solve anything.
You just make a mess.

Reports are that Robin Williams is dead. Conflicting reports say it’s a hoax.

Regardless, don’t kill yourself.

UPDATE: Robin Williams RIP

May the Four Winds blow you safely home.

Some Music Videos I Worked On:

FLASHBACK FRIDAY!

Let’s tale a little trip down memory lane…if I can remember.

mtvmoon

Music! Video! Combine the two and you have MTV when it was Music Television.

I used to work Freelance Production for film, television, video, commercials, theater and live events. Here are some of the Music Videos I worked on in the early 90s:

Neil Young & Crazy Horse – “Why Do I Keep F*ckin’ Up?”: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BKaDCP-wKr8

Neil Young & Crazy Horse – “Mansion On The Hill”: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c1WpgTzf8nk

Oil Factory Inc. Directed by Billy Poveda and Bernard Shakey Set PA, Runner, Driver, Grip and Art Department Shot both videos in a week at the Troubadour, a house on West Adams and in, around and under Queen of Angels Hospital in Los Angeles.

Day 1: We set up at the Troubadour for the live performance shots. We had a small hiccup in production when Neil showed up. Billy the director thought that Neil would just lip-sync to audio playback but Neil wanted to perform it live, so we had to get a big P.A. system ASAP because Neil also wanted it LOUD. Once the speakers arrived, they played both songs live a bunch of times and shot a ton of film. It was pretty cool because Neil wanted to play to an audience, so I got to be as close as the cameraman is in the video to the live performance. And you have to hand to Crazy Horse (Ralphie, Poncho and Billy) because they rock hard and they were great guys to hang with! I also got to meet Larry, Neil’s Guitar Tech (who plays banjo in the “Heart of Gold” concert video directed by Jonathan Demme).

Days 2, 3 and 4: We shot in, around and under Queen of Angel’s Hospital. The hospital and chapel scenes were shot there. The gas station scenes (and a funeral procession that was cut) were shot around the neighborhood. Neil’s wife Pegi is the beautiful woman sitting with him in the limosine. And the steam tunnel shots were shot under the hospital and we had to get some serious air conditioning units because the lights and crew added to the already high temperature underground.

On Day 4 we went to prep the house for the next day. Day 5: We shot at a rundown house on West Adams hill. We had to clean it before we could dress it for shooting. I had to clean 10 years of dirt and grime off every windowpane in the house and the glass doors that Neil enters through. I couldn’t say, “I don’t do windows”. And then they wanted us to cover them with gauze! The shoot went late and the strike went into early morning before we wrapped. One of the most surreal moments of my life was sitting with Neil Young in his dressing room as his trainer worked him out and listening to him curse MTV for censoring his work. Later he would win an MTV Award for best video for his anti-sponsorship song “This Note’s For You!” Bernard Shakey is Neil Young, and he had a big hand in directing and editing the project. I think the video came out pretty good. But you decide for yourself.

Lavar – “Vanilla Melt” (with a FUCKIN’ TIGER on set!): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xgufrn8FXmQ

Oil Factory Inc. Directed by Billy Poveda PLEASE NOTE: I don’t work with F*CKING TIGERS!!!!! (or any other large animals that might kill me and eat me, thank you very much) They had the tiger doped up and overfed, but at one point it decided it wanted to go “over there” and so the 800 pound tiger pulled it’s handler across the stage. Beautiful animal and the footage was cool, but I’ve always been against the exploitation of wild animals. Today they’d probably just CGI it in. “Never get out of the boat….a f*ckin’ tiger man!”

9039 Sunset Blvd on the Strip – A Brief Photographic History:

If those walls could talk! This address was the home of Cafe LaMaze in the 30’s (with a lounge called the Key Club), Sherry’s in the 40’s (where Mickey Cohen was shot), the Plymouth House in the 50’s, Gazzarri’s in the 60’s-80’s, Billboard Live and the Key Club in the 90s until last December 2013 when it became 1 Oak Nightclub.
