October 24, 2008
Working on storyboarding for El Kid. Have some great photo reference on mountain stagecoaches and muy malo bandidos.

We are featuring one of my favorite cafes in our seventh annual Best of the West issue and Meghan asked me if I had a photograph of the place. I assured her I did and spent all morning yesterday trying to find one (I must have a half-dozen but they were nowhere to be found). Instead I found all kinds of other classic stuff, like this shot of my daughter Deena, on the road from Gleason to Tombstone in October of 1984.

We were traversing the winding dirt road at sunset and I stopped the car, told Deena to get out and handed her my hat. The pose is all hers.

Subject: Appaloosa, the movie

"We saw this movie last weekend and, of course, thought of you. Have you seen it? Did you like it? I thought it was a little slow, yet it worked. I found the film endearing. Ed and Viggo were spot on. Loved Viggo's shooting stance at the end."

Yes (saw it), yes (liked it), yes (I thought it was a little slow—and hard to swallow—in the third act), yes (they saved it at the end), yes (Ed and Viggo were quite believable and excellent), yes (the dueling, sideways stance was quite accurate) and yes (I ran out of questions, but I still say yes!).
