And now for something completely off topic... This past summer, I went to California for a friend's wedding, and got a chance to visit my younger cousins, Jason and Jeremy, who are living in L.A. They share a little studio apartment a block from Grauman's Chinese Theater. The neighborhood's not bad, though one of the other tenants in their building has some kind of bird that does a dead-on imitation of a car alarm.
Jason works in "the industry," as they call it; he's a camera guy, and does editing and production work. Occasionally my parents tell me they've seen him as an extra on some TV show. While I was visiting, he got a gig filming for a reality TV fishing show.
But before that, he somehow wormed his way into Snoop Dogg's entourage, and did production work on some of his videos. Well now he's listed as the editor on Snoop's new DVD, "Boss'n Up," sure to be a classic. It'll be released Dec. 6. I wonder if he plans to send in an announcement to his Catholic high school's alumni newsletter?
This is a picture of Jeremy (left) and Jason (right). Jeremy played varsity basketball for Michigan Tech University, and recently returned from Kenya, where he spent six months working as a Christian missionary. These two are a funny pair. I miss 'em.
