Quite a day (night) yesterday. I didn't have a reporter, so I wandered around shooting bits and pieces of stories for other crews.
Press conference for the family of Rick James. Held on the sidewalk on Barham Street. Barham is a hellishly crowded street that runs along the south side of Unversal Studios.
Cruising along Sunset Boulevard. I'm looking for a notorius billboard that shows a very explicit image from the soon to be released movie, "Brown Bunny".
Tower records on Sunset.
Found the billboard, but it looks like I was too late. They cracked under the weight of the public outcry.
Ended the day by doing a "live shot" from Hollywood Boulevard in front of the Kodak Theatre. We're parked right across from the El Capitan. Lots of tourists, freaks, and stalkers.
All in all a good day. Now, I'm off to Big Bear to cover the search for the still missing kid. If I'm a little melancholy later, don't be surprised. I may have to stay overnight. Action-Wife, as always supportive, but none too happy about it. Have I mentioned how important her trust and understanding is in our relationship. I couldn't do what I do without her in my corner 24/7.
She's a keeper.
