Post Titled: Maniacal Joker Laugh

I have been trying to listen to the Ricky Gervais Podcasts, but unfortunately Ricky's maniacal Joker laugh makes this more-or-less unbearable to do in headphones, his laugh is too sudden and too high-pitched to bear. Overall the show is terribly entertaining, the pinch and taint of sly cruel British humor swirling around the tree men talking about everything and nothing is strangely really enjoyable, but that psycho laugh!!!

Yesterday's KRUPP shoot was tedious, after 3 1/2 hours of costume and make-up we (the extras dressed as 1932 students and Nazi students) were then shuttled around town and occupied various Horsaals of a few of Berlin's "elite" universities, i.e. Humboldt. Lighting schemes were impressive, I'll admit- there was literally a light blimp (8 ft wide, 25 ft long) suspended in mid-air in the main hall of the Robert Koch Forum, and huge floods coming through all the windows because -apparently- in the film it was "summer", not January. Funnily enough the Nazi students weren't allowed to leave the buildings because of their Swastika arm bands, and the Germans basically spent much of the day whining about their being not enough food, no milk of sugar for the coffee and things taking too long but -actually- the shoot was so down-time oriented that I had enough free time to read 196 pages of All Shall Be Well; All Shall Be Well; and All Manner of Things Shall Be Well which Tod brought by on Wednesday, the day it went on sale in paperback in the US. More on that when I finish it...
