Ryan Johnson Too Good for Us This Week;
Back Next Week

by Brian Dunning, Mar 10 2009

Ryan asked me to put up this note for him, apologizing that he’s going to miss a week on this blog. He’s busy on a shoot. I think he said he was going to recreate a scene from Silence of the Lambs where the killer is trying on some clothes in front of a full-length mirror. I think that’s what he said, though I could be mistaken.

My shaky memory aside, Ryan will be back here next week in his regularly scheduled slot, keeping us updated on the machinations of getting critical thinking onto television. Some of us slack and do it from the comfort of our Aeron chairs with endless mochas at our elbow, but guys like Ryan actually have to get out into the real world and do the physical labor and artistic gymnastics that translate our musings into the media that the real world consumes.

So go get ‘em, Ryan, and we’ll see you back here next week.

    I didn’t realize that you all were intending to post on a regular schedule. I won’t speak for any other readers, but I’ll just say that I don’t care when whichever of you posts as long as you don’t all fall off the face of the earth and quit altogether.

    Hi Gang.

    I just returned from a 48 hour fast turnaround video shoot. Bookended by a 7-hour drive both sides. I wish I was doing something as exciting as Silence of the Lambs, but alas, just a segment for a TV show with a bunch of folks hawking their wares. We shot in Julian CA. (An hour east of San Diego) and about as far off the beaten path as you can get, and NO internet in the hotel (Yikes!) I left you guys on the cliff-hanger, so you’ll have to hang a bit longer, but I’ll be back next week.

    Thanks Brian for posting the update to all my “not so regular” viewers! Ha ha!
