2007-05-12 - 13 Benjamin Busch, , Ben came over for a visit on his way from NYC to Boston. He is going to Boston to meet with Benjamin Keddy and the other two sound people who are working on the sound for Ben Busch's film, The Forest. Ben Keddy is writing the music. He got to our house in the afternoon of the 12th and left at about 5 the next morning. We went out to dinner and to the South Hills Mall to see Zodiac. he spent part of Sunday in Boston and then went to NYC to buy a new computer (his last one, and Tracy's were stolin out of their temporary aprtment in Big Rapids, MI. Nothing was backed up so this made the loss huge - this is a long story - probably never to be told in Visitors). He missed B & H (the store in NYC) by fifteen minutes. Then off to College Park Maryland to try and finish fixing up that house so it could be sold (another long story). The day sfter that he went to Baltimore for his last day of filming on the HBO series - The Wire - more related to that in a moment. After filming he headed upstate to Albany to take down an exhibition of his photgraphs and was to bring them to Colgate. On route we got a call from him as he was paaing Poughkeepsie on the Taconic. Whe he is done at Colgate he is going to Sherburne, Ny to see if everything is OK at his parent's house and to deal with his brother Nick. then he drives back up to Michigan to spend a few days with Tracy and Alexandra before leaving for Africa to start filming, Generation Kill, a new HBO erioes about the Iraq war. He will have to be in Africa for 17 weeks of the 27 week shooting schedule.
