Yes after being a real hippie and selling burritos at shows and owning my own custom made moccasin store(and Birkenstocks)I crossed over to the other side. Now part of the 'Hippies with Haircuts' clan.
I have been working as a 'dolly grip' for nearly 25 years now.A IATSE union member as well. I do camera movement-yes the actors move and we follow them-or lead them or if they don't move -we do- and create the drama! But I have decided that the old body is aging and it is getting harder to carry my 475 # dolly upstairs any more so I have moved up to camera operator. I am the guy that looks through the eyepiece and composes the shots you see (if you watch tv or see movies). I have been a photographer since a child so this really is where my heart is! I do get to wear my tie dyes at work as well as my old show shirts so work is a gas. I currently am working on the Lifetime channel show 'Army Wives', the production designer is a head as well and we try to sneak in little Dead tidbits wherever we can. It is kind of a subliminal game we play. This has been done on many a show I have been on before. We are everywhere!!
Never had such a good time...........
Blue 22 - I really like your winter photos, thanks for sharing.
If the doors of perception were cleansed, everything would appear to man as it is, infinite.
anything from blazing a snowshoe trail (only in winter, as it's more work than fun in the summer), to passing medication to someone ("it's medication time"), to crisis intervention, to being a therapist or a wanna be (as im in graduate school), to taking a picture in the woods to reading to my beautiful boy at night....I am poor ass broke because i can't just go get a real job and the government wants all this money I have not even made yet.......
One of the dudes I was working with in Tech Support is a dead head. I wasn't really into the dead, and I placated him a whole lot. Then after he got canned I went to Archive.org to listen to what the whole fuss was about. After listening to my First Dark Star I was hooked. Now it has been a year since I have started listening, and my mother in law (a true dead head) is in shock at my live collection up to now. Man, where have I been all my life. I still work at the Tech Support place and I havent talked to my old coworker since he got canned, but i carry on the dead's spirit here. I guess I'm a Tech Dead Head....
I am the Assistant Golf Professional at a private golf club in Victoria BC Canada. I also manage the bag room where the members golf bags are stored. In winter we are short staffed and I work only in the bag room. It is pretty chill I have computer speakers with my Ipod plugged in and I listen to the grateful dead whenever I am in the storage room probably 4 hours a day. In the summer I am very busy working in the proshop assisting members and selling merchandise. This summer coming up is the first time that I will be a qualified professional instructor so I am excited about being outside teaching golf and running junior camp for kids. Thare are not any deadheads who I work with however I am surprised at how many members of the golf club come into the bag room hear my GD playing and recognize it and like that is always a fun time of my day.
I toil on the line for Chevy. It's a job and hopefully my kids will never do. Right now as I can figure I'm the only Deadhead in the building---scary.
I am a plant Supervisor for the local CATV provider.
I work inside the belly of the beast otherwise known as a predatory credit card company that shall remain nameless. I work with the customers who unwittingly have been financially steamrolled. If you get me on the phone I'm the best friend you've ever had. I used to play music semi professionally but now my hearing is shredded and I've lost the desire to be around high volume music.
I am the Assistant Forester for a city in Illinois. Mainly I coordinate our tree planting program, Arborday celecration, help with snow operation, and supervise the mosquito abatement program. I love my job beacuse I get to go out in the field when I want and I have enough paperwork to keep me inside when its nasty out.
If it were not for having such a great job and my family I would not be in Illinois. I love the west and plan to get out there as soon as possible.
Wow, the title is loooooooooooooooooooooooonger than the body of the comment, heheheheheheheheheh :).
Anyway, I'm teaching English to non Anglo-Saxon "knuckleheads" in the EU right now!.
