154/365 A day in Hollywood

I wish I had started taking advantage of this sooner. It's pretty fun, cool to see the production, and best of all - it's FREE.
I live one hour from Hollywood, and Debbie and I went to see a taping of the Dr. Phil show today... Last year, my sister and I went to The Price Is Right... I don't regularly watch either of those shows, but I think it's fun just to see how they are produced. I was really into theater when I was younger, so I enjoy the techie side of entertainment. I like sitting behind the cameras and seeing how it's all made.
Look for me and Debbie on the episode where the topic is "Revenge"... I don't have tivo, so I may never see it! :)

I'm going to post the "before photoshop" and the after for this one. Pretty spectacular difference, and it's a prime example of why NO ONE should trust any image they EVER see!

Photo before I cropped, desaturated, sharpened, gaussian blurred, added textures, and added custom brushes to it:


  1. wow ... U don't have TV! May i ask u why!
    interesting !!!

    I have , but I only use it for 2 purposes:
    1- watch DVD's I have
    2- Play PS3

  2. We DO have TV, but we just don't make a big deal of watching a lot of shows. We mostly watch movies and sports. The only show that we plan to see most every week is Dexter.
    I would like to get a Wii, but at this point I'd rather spend my money on camera equipment than a video game.

    These talk shows and game shows that I've been in the audience for are all on during the day when I'm at work!
