Still at the office, no end in sight.
Welcome to Daytime TV. Lots of work goes into the utter crap you see on the TV screen. I will say, the show I’m on now is going to be genius and I’m actually excited to be here and I will be proud of the end product. I’ve worked for this EP before and she’s the shit. But I’m tired and I want to be home listening to soft rock on Pandora. I said fuck it and powered...
Office Snack Foods
One of the great things about working in production is the array of FREE snack foods offered to you by the production company. These cases and litigants don’t book themselves. We need fuel to soldier on! Today, I am dining on a Costco brand trail mix and a Nabisco brand Lorna Doone 100 Calorie snack pack.
LAST POST for the morning, I swear.
This soft rock is killing me. Now Captain and Tennille is on and it’s a song I forgot even existed. Look at this shit: Oh man!! Amazing! So here’s where I’m at. I’m thinking about this guy who I stopped fucking (it was just fucking—- but for like a year and a half) about a year ago. I haven’t seen him, spoken to him, nothing since then and I think about...
Uh oh... and now a bad soft rock omen.
So I’m listening to OLJ, feeling good, and the next song is Steely Dan’s “Don’t Take Me Alive.” I read the first few lyrics: They’re talking about litigants! They can’t really afford megaphones but their voices definitely carry. Most don’t have cars so I’d say they are pedestrians (literally and figuratively, in that their tastes, ideas,...
I have found a way to be zen. It's Olivia...
I was feeling a little stressed about work today—- well, not really because we’re booked. Still in the “What did I do with my life?” zone when I woke up. HOWEVER, I tuned in to my Pandora Soft Rock station that I created and this happened. Now, I’m feeling good about talking to depressing people who are upset over some bullshit.
When I hear sad stories all day, I listen to soft...
Nothing helps me unwind like the soft rock station I created on Pandora. It’s part yacht rock, part smooth R&B. Think Steely Dan, Captain and Tennille, The Commodores, Hall & Oates, Isley Brothers, Toto, The Carpenters, etc. I mellow out, have a drink, then think, “What did I do with my life? Where did I go wrong? Is anyone home for meaningless sex so I can fill the void? ...
MAN ON A TOWER! I USED 2 WORK ON THAT LOT!
Some mental patient is climbing the KTLA tower and refuses to come down. That’s on the Tribune Lot, which I think is now called Sunset Bronson. Either way, it’s still the home of Judge Judy and Judge Joe Brown and is rumored to be the new home of Judge Alex. I would NOT be surprised if that was a rogue litigant who escaped the green room to have a freak out in Hollywood. ...
WHY ISN'T JUDGE JOE BROWN ON DWTS?
Alright, I’m pissed. I have been to many a wrap party and let me tell you something, JUDGE JOE BRIZ-OWN can shake a tail feather! He is no joke on the dance floor. This is just… it’s an abomination is what it is. Nancy Grace from Swift Justice but no J-J-B in the place to be? On the dance floor, Judge Joe makes James Brown look like a punk. Trust.
I want to sue myself for loss of enjoyment of...
Ok, maybe I don’t want to sue myself for that but you’d be surprised by how many people sue each other for loss of enjoyment of life. “Your honor, Defendant owes me $300 for a personal loan and I’m also suing for loss of enjoyment of life.” The going rate for loss of enjoyment of life: $1000. Sometimes people sue for 2k but for the most part, people only value...
UFO Enthusiasts make great litigants.
I booked this guy back in 2004 on a court show. He was amazing and he brought his UFO artifact with him. He had a museum near Branson, MO called “The Museum of the Unexplained.” Recording a podcast on Sunday with the producer I worked with on the case. Here he is on The History Channel: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pZF3BfDNAvs
OH NO the promos department di'ent! →
At :51 in, a guy does an impression of James Brown in the courtroom. I booked him. You’re welcome.
