Canon, customer service. 5Dm2

I drove down to Irvine, Ca today to drop my 5d M2 off at the “Canon Express Service Center.” It was like the waiting room at a Dr.’s office meets the ticket taking Deli counter. There was a 50/50 chance I’d be able to have my camera repaired today. I guess “hot pixels” take less than 7 days to repair and ship back. I’m crossing my fingers that it’s an easy fix and I get my baby back soon. I was hoping to be able to use it for this PopSugar / Cameron Diaz shoot next week. Might have to borrow my brothers 5d.
Irvine reminds me of Boca Raton, Fl. Stuffy white people in dress casual attire showing up the Joneses on their way out of church. Decent looking environment though.

I Spit on Your Grave

I watched the remake of “I Spit on Your Grave” In preparation for this Horror directing workshop I signed up for. This is one sick female revenge flick. Without a doubt I will have nightmares of teeth being ripped out of my skull.
The movie definitely had that “F*$k yeah” feeling that “Taken” had but was more of a torture porn suspense thriller set in the “Deliverance” universe. I wouldn’t say I enjoyed it, but it sucked me in and I couldn’t shut it off. I can only assume that is what the director intended. I would recommend this to anybody that liked Hostel or the Saw franchise.
The sad thing about this movie is that women get brutally raped like this every day and they unfortunately do not have the ability to hunt down their assailant like Sarah Butler did. They have to rely on a broken legal system to serve justice.
Watch this movie if you want to see assholes get exactly what you think they deserve.
