Pagoda down! Pagoda down!

Originally a gift from Midland’s sister city Dongying China, the much vandalized Beal Park pagoda has finally taken a tumble. Actually it looks like it was cut down (I’m guessing by the city, for safety sake, or by skateboarders with chainsaws.)

Make Your Own Coffee Pod shoot set up.

My plan: a duel camera shoot on how to make your own coffee pods (like those used for the Senseo coffee maker.)

I did the set up tonight so I can shoot first thing in the morning. No shower, no brush, just the pure glamour of me right out of bed. Just like you would have to do, if you were out of coffee pods in the morning. If I can make it happen (with cameras rolling,) it’s easy enough anyone can do it.

Sure I could see AT&T vs. Verizon, or Apple vs. Google & Motorola, but when Apple and Verison are directly going at it, will seven months be enough time for them to kiss and make up?

The Box is based on the short story Button, Button, written by Richard Matheson. So if you don’t have 1 hours and 55 minutes to burn at the theater, here’s a 20 minute version from The Twilight Zone.

Part 1 of Button, Button
