I left Hong Kong at 1:00 AM Monday and somehow got into San Francisco at 9PM Sunday night. My brain was slightly scrambled. Thanks to the individual screens in the 747 and 100 movies and 800 TV shows, the time went fairly fast. I never look at the time on a long flight. I’ve always loved movies. As a kid, my friends and I would take the streetcar down to (Market Street (San Francisco), get off at Van Ness, where the magnificent Fox Theater was, and walk 6 or 7 blocks down toward the Ferry Building, deciding which of the 20 or so theaters to go to. On the 2 flights I saw Goodfellas (had never seen, fabulous role by Joe Pesci), Killing Bono, a Clint Eastwood where he’s a Texas Ranger, a runaway train movie with Denzel Washington, a lovely French movie about a bachelor dad and his daughter, and watched 2 episodes of Curb Your Enthusiasm, which I’d never seen, piercingly funny, one episode with Rosie O’Donnell, another with Ricky Gervais; funny as all get-out.
The Green Festival is in San Francisco this weekend. A bright spot when I got back was these 15″ x 22″ blowups of pages from the tiny homes book for the festival, where we’ll have a booth; Rick made these on our Epson Stylus Pro 4800. We’re also putting up a 27″ x 34″ blowup of the cover.
Big news: Two advance copies of the book and 100 copies of the tiny tiny book are set to arrive by 4:30 today via FedEx. Our printers (Paramount in Hong Kong) are really on the ball. Am I excited!
