What's this? Two midweek posts in a row?
Surely the End Times must be coming...
Hey, it's a busy week, and I have no explanations -- but I don't think this will mark a pattern of multi-post weeks on my part, unless I suddenly become unemployed.
Which will happen in a couple of days, now that I think of it.
Anyway, the reason for this second mid-week aberation is to alert you to a really wonderful post on another Industry blog called "Life Below the Line." Published by a sound mixer/boom person in New York, this is one of my favorite Industry blogs. The mystery Sound Woman writes like a dream, and has a sharp eye for the telling details that bring a story to life. She's really good.
She doesn't post very often, but when she does, it's always worth reading. Her post of Oct. 29 (called "Needy") is a real gem, describing the strange world of commercials, the needy nature of actors, and a whole lot more. If you're interested in delving deeper into the emotional mechanics of this strange Industry -- or just like good writing -- I urge you to check it out.
For reasons I don't understand, I was unable to link directly to this post -- but if you click here, and scroll down to the second post, you'll find "Needy."
I think you'll be glad you did.
