About: me

Me vs 8Who am I?

I’m based in LA.

I’m a classically trained musician who loves art and architecture.

I’m a retired desk-jockey (Executive Assistant to the insert favorite three letter acronym here).

I’m fun.

I’m tall.

I blog at

Ooooo Ooooo!, oo7

I was sauntering along Broadway earlier this evening and happened to pass the AMC Hoffman at Lincoln Square, and guess which movie poster I saw?!?

Quantum of Solace 007, due to release in November 2008. :)

So I had to view quite a few trailers until I got one that didn't look like a hodge-podge of older bond films, so I wonder at the accuracy of the clip above. If the clip is accurate as to the upcoming film, then it looks like part of the movie was filmed in NYC, or at the very least, that a few NYPD cop cars made it to the set.


Edit: Now that I think about it, a couple of the scenes shown in the clip remind me of The Bourne Ultimatum..... hmmm, I wonder if they borrowed from that film to make the clip...

Edit 2: The embedded link seems to be working for me, but just in case, here's the URL.

Mac Keyboard, love it / hate it


Love it and hate it.

Loves: Ooooo shiny! Thin design, looks cool. The keys are super slim so you don't have to depress the keys very far, result, my fingers feel super sexy while typing.

Hates: Um, I'm used those big bulky keys as place markers, kind of feeling my way around the keyboard. Now I just have to type and hope I hit the right key... Mostly, I don't like that the volume keys don't work.

Did a little research and it seems like this is a consistent problem, tried to download the fix, twice, unsuccessfully. So no volume for me, as of yet.


Edit: Well I finally called applecare. It was an easy/idiotic fix. It looks like the default setting is for the volume keys NOT to work.

If your volume keys aren't working. Try opening up System Preferences. Click on Keyboard and Mouse, then "de-select" "Use all F1, F2, etc. keys as standard function keys". Stupid if you ask me.

Moving on.

My new favorite song. :)
