Now anyone that has read my posts knows that I have an affection for hitting varilites that hang off the front of a stage. Well, last night was a dandy. I'm generally not a fan of dutch angles unless the framing really benifits from it. However, I have perfected the "going dutch when motivated by banging into a varilite" shot. I'm getting so good at it that our director has not caught on. Maybe its his MTV roots. Anyway, my thumb was really smashed between gimble and post. Jerry Holway was all over me to get my thumb up and now I'm blaming him for the pain. It would seem that when tilting up, say 45 degrees, and then violently rolling over 45 or more, there is little room left for one's thumb. Tonight, I shall wear a boxing glove!

Kris, just when I thought I was getting better, Wilson
