2007 Year End round-ups

Things and things that I haven't talked about (maybe?) -

- Esra and I are going to Istanbul.. Jan 13 - 23rd. very exciting. her mom's side of the family lives there and.. as her dad, mom and brother (and cousins) will be joining us, and as Esra and family have planned an 'engagement dinner' of sorts at Fenerbah├že Club

- Many pictures of Istanbul to come... ala the kick-arse camera we bought with christmas money (for 1/2 the amazon price, wooo!)

- I've worked on the following since I last told ya what I've worked on: Macy's, Macy's, Macy's, Dave's Bridal and, it still makes me laugh: Honey Bunches of Oats.
the Macy's were 2 commercials and 1 print ad, the Dave's Bridal was a commercial. Honey Bunches of Oats was a music video 'homage', let's say, to Flight of the Conchords and/or Tenacious D and/or the SNL Digital Shorts music video spoofs. The 'song' was "Breakfast in Bed" complete with the lines "girl, I love it when you masticate" and (referring to their bowls of cereal) "wanna make sure I dont finish before you". ya. weird to watch, for sure. mostly funny tho. And being the "hey, Kory normally does Art Dept PA work" guy, I got 'borrowed' by the Art Director often and put to much use building walls (it's someone surprising how rewarding it is to turn a box of screws and some 2x4's into solid walls in under 5 minutes). Long hours though.. 17 on one of the 3 days, 15 on another.

- Then it was my birthday, yeayyy. We went here. Also, I know it goes without saying but, it was Warren Sapp's birthday too.

- Speaking of the Raiders... I will respectfully not speak of the Raiders except to say that they are still the best team ever.  by ever, I mean next year.
