Hello friends, foes, people I know and people I don’t. How are you doing on this fantastic Friday? I hope you get the reference there in the title. If not, we can’t be friends. We had a pretty sweet week. It definitely didn’t look like it was going to be good when we started with a 9AM Crew Call on Monday but we eventually worked our way back to a 8AM yesterday. We wrapped at 530PM and today we have a 10AM call but projected to be done by 9PM. Pretty great right? Shit anytime I get to Friday and the call isn’t noon I’m a happy camper. That means that tonight we will probably…most likely hit a bar after work and get a little fun in before not only the weekend but before we head into our last week on this show. That is fucking bonkers right now because it feels like we just started this one and now just like that POW it’s about to be over. Anyhow, let’s get into this shall we.
Today’s post is a thank you to someone who really just showed their awesomeness this past week. I know I go on often about all the crazy and ridiculous stuff that happens in this business at times. I know some of the shit I write at times might have some of you just saying “THEN JUST QUIT!!” but as I emphasis enough on here, I love working in this business. I just really enjoy pointing out and laughing at its flaws as well. I think it’s important to be able to laugh at not only yourself but all aspects of your life. Laughter is good for a person. I laugh at the good parts and the bad. Now for those of you that have been following the blog for a while you might have at one point or another read “Goldfolds, Useful or Just Cool…” or it’s follow-up “Return of The GoldFold-er…“. Now without getting to deep into it basically what happen was…I was given a goldfold by an A.D. I then used the thing, didn’t find it useful and wrote about it here at We’re Not Rolling. This guy that I won’t name again that supposedly was one of the first creators of the goldfold then wrote me some angry messages and emails about my…blog post…words on a screen…my how should I say, opinion. This is what lead to writing the follow-up post.
This was what lead me to finding Miracle AD Wallet. I could go on about the company but I’ll just let you check it out for yourself. Plus to an extent, I did that in my 2nd post. The reason I bring them up again is because last week I actually got an email from Kyle LeMire . Kyle is the owner and master mind behind the non-profit company and as I learned from googling him thanks to the power of the inter webs, a seasoned vet in the industry himself. Kyle has been credited as a Actor, Production Manager, Producer, Stage Manager, 2nd Assistant Director, 1st Assistant Director and much more. He has credits dating back to 1993. CSI:NY, Leverage (I LOVE THIS SHOW!), Seeking a Friend for the End of the World are just a few of the gigs he worked on.
Alright back to the email. So Kyle I guess read my blog post and sent me an email requesting my address. I thanked him for getting in contact with me and sent him my address. A few days later I received my very own Miracle A.D wallet in the mail. Now I won’t sit here and say that my opinion on the actual use of these wallets has now changed because I got one from the guy who should rename nameless business competitor. I still feel the same way as I talked about in my post. And besides that’s not the point of this post. I wanted to write this post as an acknowledgement to show how 2 very different people who own similar companies handled the situation of someone online talking about their product. I wanted to write this post to say thank you very much to Kyle LeMire for being one of the great parts of this business that I love so much. Kyle while I’m still not a fan of these wallets I will use yours on set as a conversation starter to send more people to your amazing product. It’s been in my pocket since I got it and I’ve already had quite a few people ask me about it. See the people that like the A.D wallet will always like the A.D wallet. I would never try to change someone’s mind about that. I really love what you’ve done with your company. It’s awesome to see people giving back instead of just taking all the time. Thank you so much again for the gift and I hope to one day meet and/or work with you on something.
Thanks for reading everyone. I know this one was a bit short but I think you can understand due to the content. Make sure to come back this and every Monday to check out The Toke Talking Podcast and no matter what make sure you have an excellent weekend. Make the most of it, I don’t want to hear non of this “It was Short!” shit on Monday. Take care all.
