Dunkin Donuts, Fetus Photo's and Ice Cream

Alt text

Up and straight to the laundrette to leave them to deal with my washing from the recent trip to America. Back at the office I delve into my day's to-do list and start by sorting and sending a bunch of photos across to the merch team. Included are some recent ones (outtake above) and some 'pre-signed' Vamps photo's as well (out takes below) and even some Instax scans

I grab a coffee and think back to how much I enjoyed my coffee this day. Within 10 minutes I have made a Dunkin Donuts ground coffee order, amazed and excited by the fact it is available in the UK. My next job requires I go back into the Live At The O2 DVD project. It's not on my main edit drive anymore so I fire up Disk Tracker and within seconds I am told it'll be on Drive 10 in my archive.

I store the footage on naked 4TB hard drives that slot into a USB 3 drive bay. Once the project opens up I go about pulling out three songs from the master edit file that are being uploaded today to the bands YouTube channel. I chop them up, compress and upload. I flick back through them to check they are ok. This is a DVD that, maybe by luck, had zero change requests from anyone. My first pass/first cut was also my final cut. I wish that happened for every project! I am very happy with the DVD and messages like this one below further enhance my happiness about it.

Incidentally, here are the three tracks from the live DVD should you wish to watch...

That done I head to see some family and enjoy catching up briefly over a cup of tea before heading back to carry on the days work. Before getting home I stop off to pick up the Laundry, and get some fairy liquid, only...I forget that's what I'm there for, and end up buying some waffles and ice cream which I'm both happy and annoyed about when I remember back home. I jump into the Poughkeepsie and Albany edit from this day and have a clean 4 hour run in which I finish including grade (it's uploading to YouTube while I type this), here's a few screenshots from the video.

The band also posted this photo on their Instagram that I took a few months ago, today.
