Shit Happens Now on Revolving Floor

Heh, I kind of enjoyed writing that without punctuation, but the truth is that my blog, "Shit Happens," is going up today at some point on the group blog Revolving Floor.

For those of you who may have forgotten, Revolving Floor is a group forum I've joined, along with a lot of other great writers, poets, and artists of various sorts, where we choose a topic each month and then do our own peculiar spin on it. The topic of October is "This is a Test," and so my riff on that is about the process of troubleshooting that is soooo much fun and sadly soooo much a part of our everyday work lives as film technicians. And then I get into various related topics, such as "Smacking People in the Head With the Boom, Actors Hurting Each Other, and Other Things That Can Go Wrong On a Film Set," and "Why Most Sound People Should Be Institutionalized."

And check out some of the great work by other contributors while you're there...

And I will blog here again soon, promise, about the sex party.
