Mind you this is a vacation day I'm using up.
First thing go to Target and get stuff to patch a wall and a few small plumbing items not to mention tall shelves for the projectors tomorrow. Now the film WAS my big project today but as it turns out it was a bust.
It took all morning and a lot more to get the wall patched and to find out that we likely need a plumber to clear the drain in the sink. A frikkin morning spent smelling the black ooze that grows in pipes then have to cleanup the bathroom from all the water that spilled in the process.
By 3:30 it was time to take a shower. By 5:30 at least I got the new belts put on the projectors and the projector stands assembled...all that was needed was to find films to splice for the second projector. So it's off to the rehearal space only to find that my A films are missing. that's right the coolest films which I spliced together ages ago are no longer on the shelf I'd remembered leaving them on. I looked inside, I looked outside (where I may add I find some of my equipment just lying about) but no luck. Fucking gone. Like a good $60 of 16 mm films I'd collected poof. And the worst thing is the show is tomorrow!
Fuck. I'm just utterly bummed now as I worked so hard to find these vintage parts, fix the new projectors, and get a shelving sytem only to be fucked in the end.
