Now ensconced in Laurel Canyon, after noisy neighbors drove us out of the Tijunga Village home. Cars roar by pretty much non-stop on Laurel Canyon Boulevard, but my giant picture window where I'm typing this faces out onto a gorgeous glade - - dragon flies, lizards, bouganvilla, and even a bubbling brook make themselves at home on this hillside property. And the birds. They cast some kind of weird hypnotic spell every morning making it harad to snap out of it, go in the house and do the daily writing gigs.

I've seen the future of movies, maybe, and it's mighty impressive. On Thursday I went to RED Cinema in Hollywood and they filmed me tossing an orange, hurling water, stuff like that. They shot it at 48 frames per second. Normally, it would be 24 frames a second. Twice as crisp! I'll be writing up a full report for Wired.com in next few days.

I did a radio commentary for Canadian Broadcasting Company on Wednesday, ranting about Andy Serkis getting snubbed for an Oscar just because he uses "performance capture" technology. Tomorrow Friday, I drive to a Pasadena radio station to record a phone interview with the host of Day Six. Like pretty much everything in life, it's harder than it looks , or sounds - - to read from a script and make it sound conversational. More I did it, the better it sounded. Good producer helped me getting out of my writer head and more into performance mode. The thing airs Saturday Jan. 28, worldwide.
