for somebody…doing a freelancer type of thing.

So, I interviewed the Americans and pitched to the Medill News Service….I may be able to get a byline out of this European experience.

I got a kick out of watching this story from the Philippines – they now have a fast food restaurant that serves only spam dishes….yummy. I hope you can have a side order of rice.

Arafat was buried today ….our newsroom carried the videos live fore several stations – from CNN to Sky News.

My producer top-lined me and said I should drop what I was doing in the edit bays…

I ended up in the middle of the newsroom – surrounded by the sounds and images of grieving and chaos in Ramallah. it was incredible.

We went clubbing on Friday night….the Hippedrome…..it was 15 pounds to get in….it was expensive – but at least it had some great music….the Brits don’t really get funky on the dance floor – but then again – some folks in bay area clubs need to stay off the caffeine….

Mark: “I am not your helper monkey….”

Audrey Hepburn was so wonderful in My Fair Lady….It’s a shame that the rest of the entertainment community was so set against her for taking the role. Everyone wanted Julie Andrews to reprise her role as Eliza after her performance on Broadway….according to the bio-books I’ve read, Hepburn worked on her singing voice for several months – but the director decided to bring in a professional and so…she had to Britney-Spears it aka Hepburn had to lip-synch her tunes…

On Election Night – I did a shoot at this Premiere…

Ok…no pix with the stars…simply because I was doing the field producing thing…and it just didn’t look professional….but now that I think about it…professional be damned. I should have whipped out my Cannon and snapped some pix of 007….but he was a nice enough guy during my 2 minute interview.

He voted for Kerry.
