Okay, so I know I haven't posted in a while... but I'm hoping to get back in the habit. At least to help me stay connected to those around me.
I don't want to make this post a laundry list of all the crap that I am doing that is stressing me out, so instead I'll just share an interesting anecdote.
I was directing my Nightly News show, and as director I am calling the shots on the show. So I'm watching the monitors, telling the technical director to change the cameras, etc. It got a little loud in the studio, and I asked everyone to keep it down because I was having trouble concentrating.
Here at Emerson, there are perpetual campus tours. Emerson is a marketing machine, bringing in 7th and 8th graders on occasion to hook 'em early. So I guess the normality of seeing a tour group coupled with the fact that I was focusing on directing a show made me miss it.
I found out what "it" was after the show.
Yeah, That Tim Robbins. The academy award winner.
He was on a tour of Emerson College, and he was in the studio while I was directing a show. Funny thing about it is that I never saw him. So I can't even tell the story as "I saw Tim Robbins". I can only say "Apparently Tim Robbins was behind me on Tuesday". Strange.
