ragged isle: year one

so about a year ago a few of us got together at Barry's and started a project. Not unusual for me – Barry and I have known each other for 30 years, and have been collaborating nearly as long. But this time was somehow different. We made progress immediately. Barry, Karen, Rick, Greg and I seemed to click – complimenting , expanding, and nurturing this idea.

fast forward to this past Sunday I met up with "the Dodds" and was able to see some rough cuts. Let me just say: Wow. I mean, I was unable to see the filming, so seeing it this close to final seemed unreal. I remember the conversations about this or that: "we can't do that, cause this happens over here", "we should have this person go here", "this is the part when this happens to them", and now? Now it's SOOO close.

I missed the one showing of the play we wrote in 5th grade. There's no way I am missing this!


  1. I had totally forgotten about our play. I believe I may have a vhs copy of it somewhere if you'd like to see it.

  2. yeah, 5th grade. We had Mr. Smith. I think it was his first year teaching and he got stuck in a split 4/5th grade classroom. He had to spend most of his time with the fourth graders, so as long as we weren't walking on the ceiling and punching nuns, we were largely left to come up with our own stuff to do.

    I had the flu the day of the performance, and I believe Carrie Seekins stood in for me.

    I say the play should totally be an easter egg on season 2's DVD!
