Really I could talk about a lot more than a week, but I’ll try and keep it centered around the last week’s worth of events – unless I ramble and start talking about other things too. We’ve been busy lately! Shooting for the documentary has ramped up and the next six to eight weeks are going t be packed! Today I get to purchase my doctorate. Still debating whether or not I’m going to be a doctor in gravy or pick a better “specialty.”
OK, I was trying to write about other things but there’s really only one thing I’ve wanted to write about for the last few days – GO-KART RACING!
I love my job! We have business meetings in the best places and last week we had one at a K1 Speedway in Gardena. Open racing, Chinese food and a healthy dose of manly competition (even the women were feeling manly)! A friend of ours was having an event for the pre-production of their new film “Super Go” which is about, you guessed it, go-kart racing. I’ve been indoor go-kart racing before, but I have to give it up to K1 – who is not endorsing me – for a pretty killer time. The karts were smooth and quick, they took a surprising amount of punishment (all unintentional, of course) and
all done with electric motors! Here’s a view from my kart before the start:
Since it was a private party they weren’t really keeping great stats, but I’m pretty confident that, even if I wasn’t winning a lot, I was a top racer.
When we were done I felt like I’d just played Grand Theft Auto for eight or nine hours straight. I had to cool off before I felt safe getting back in my own car and even when I did it felt very different to drive a real car again. Zeke said we should just make movies about go-karts from now on so that we can have an excuse to race more. I can’t argue that, it’s a good idea
Off to shoot more movie stuff!
See you tomorrow!
