Equipment truck version 2.0

As I've mentioned more than once, when you change one usually have to change a lot more just to make the new thing work. I think that made sense.

This past January we built my new sound cart which is much larger than the previous version. The resulting issue is that now neither the main cart and the accessory cart will fit in my current van anymore. I've had the GMC Safari for 10 years, and it's served me well. But now it's time to move to a much larger vehicle.

A new box van is in the planning stages and will be in production soon. More details to follow, but I can tell you that it will be nice to be able to stand up inside the truck and also have a lift gate. Can't wait for both of those things.

saving Jericho....again

This past week Brad Beyer, who plays Stanley Richmond on Jericho, and I recorded some Voice Over for a new campaign to keep the show alive. The fans of Jericho are tireless in their endeavor to keep the show on TV. Brad and I had a great time recording the VO and are very happy to help out in the efforts.

Personally, I'd like to thank all the fans that have written in to the SaveJerichoAgain website with kind words and praise. I'm happy to help. Really.

Just a bit of trivia, Brad and I recorded the dialog on the stages that were used for Jericho. In fact Brad was about 20 feet from Gracie's Market (turned Trading Post) and almost exactly on the spot where Hawkins had his basement and "safe room". We thought it was fitting...

Last weeks of Swingtown

We've been back in production on Swingtown since the end of March and we are nearing the end. There are just over 2 episodes left for production. Our premiere was this past week with a good showing and good ratings. The spirits are high here at Swingtown central. We are hopeful to find out something positive regarding the future of our show before we wrap, but that rarely happens. We'll probably find out our fate after we have shut down.

Keep watching Swingtown on Thursday nights at 10pm(eastern/pacific)-9pm(central) on CBS.
