Came home a couple days ago and found a notice posted near the gate in my driveway. If you're from L.A., you know the sort: filming to take place nearby on such date and during such and such hours.
But when I read further down the page, the notice mentioned loud noises, and in big, bold letters: AUTOMATIC WEAPONS FIRE
Haha, it's too bad my neighbors took the notice down, because I wanted to take it to work and scan it. Turns out the filming is for Crossing Over, a movie starring Harrison Ford, Sean Penn, Ray Liotta, and Ashley Judd. And it's taking place, within, like, blocks of my house (or however far of a radius of notices the city requires when automatic weapons are being discharged). Hopefully I'll be at home during at least part of the filming, and hopefully, if I do decide to follow the sounds of gunfire to their source, local gangs will not decide to join the fray with live ammunition O_o
The new PC is almost ready for assembly. I have everything but the motherboard, thanks to the pain in the ass that it can be to make payments through paypal (the limit on my credit card is only $250 :-/). But I restrained myself in paying the $28 (discounted) overnight shipping to get the mobo by Saturday (yesterday) so I could have the machine built for the weekend. Which means one thing is for sure: I will lose sleep during the coming week :)
