Does Collecting Make You Feel Dirty?
The Light
I just walked across the UC Berkeley campus from Wheeler Hall to Hearst and Arch. It's hotter than usual, but the golden sheen on the grass and buildings more than compensates. As I looked across the street to 1890 Arch Street -- I once described the building as "Neo-Tudor" to a policeman who stopped me on a night I'd rather not remember -- and then down Hearst towards the silver glow on the bay, I felt for a second like I'd never left. San Francisco always felt a little surreal to me. But Berkeley, which I did not get to "know" in film and television before getting to know it in person, is where I feel at home. Made me want to go drop some money -- futilely, to be sure -- at Homefinders.

You can right up College Av. heading toward Oakland and reach my school, Calif. College of the Arts. :-))

I'm staying with a couple, one of whom also attended CCAC. And I went to lots of parties with CCAC people when I was an undergrad at Berkeley.

Loved your Hurricane "coverage," BTW.

Charlie, did you get my email about the interview tomorrow?

I'm sending you and sittinginaroom an e-mail, so check your respective accounts. I'm not sure of my departmental neighbor's schedule, so you may need to sit in my office for a bit beforehand.

You should call me on my cell -- sometimes I don't hear the ringer, so keep trying -- and work things out that way.
