and now... even more red carpet... NOT!
I'm back in LA for "Meet the Fockers"
premiere. We had planned on shooting the upcoming television show somewhere along the yes... 'red carpet' at Universal, but the studio at the last min. (and we did ask to attend at the last min.) said "sorry, but we're greatly overextended with the press". Oh well... then hey! let's take a 'small' pro-sumer camera
and do it anyway. uh.. no. the unauthorized recording memo we got at the event read "... you consent to a physical search of your belongings and person... if you attempt to bring a recording device in... denied admission... immediate removal... forfeiture of the device... subject to criminal and civil liability." God, who wrote this? Tom Ridge?? But we watched the movie and hit the afterparty along with 1,600 people. All of us dined on beer, chimiachangas and hot dogs... mmmm... no wonder recording devices were not allowed. :0

"the Red Carpet"... an American thing
Just back from L.A. shooting at the Creative Coalition's
annual gala and we shot up the red carpet as celebs arrived. The Red Carpet is one of those strange American things that EXTRA
has made as needed at any event as VIP gift bags with Botox gift certificates. The PR firms (and they all do this) will print up a list of every celeb* they claim is attending (* celeb may be attending if a VM message regarding said event was left on the William Morris agent's phone). IS attending if VM message left on same agent's cell phone). But we did get to chat with director Frank Oz (who said he's 'unemployed' - quick, call Ms. Piggy!), Barry Levinson (producer-about-town AND writer of my fave Mel Brook's comedy "High Anxiety"). The most disturbing actor on the carpet? Charles Fleischer ("Roger Rabbit" & "The Polar Express")... he was on *something* and could do a bang-up job in the "Bi-Polar Express". along with Seth Green who had an extreeeme mohawk (which actually made him taller than me). I asked him to come to Dallas to shoot a film and he said he needed provacation... 'provacation' I asked? Is that a new SAG term?
.............. Seth Green could pass as my younger, shorter, insipid brother
I know as Americans, we're automatically labeled as living excessively simply by residing in one of the 50 states. I however, started feeling extra guilty lately after seeing how much trash I could not even fit into our dumpster yesterday. I was watching a homeless guy in the alley as he watched me stuff the 4th big, black bag of garbage into the refuse thing. (Note to self: 'Get Dallas to recycle') I'm sure I don't need to throw away this many magazines, newspapers, perrier bottles, Bibentuckers cleaning bags, paper towels, tissue, wine bottles, half-chewed dog toys and various other stuff. But I knew I had crossed the 'consumption line' when I caught myself watering the house plants with several bottles of unused S. Pellegrino. That does it... I'm calling Leo DiCaprio and asking for help right now.
What would Leo drive?
