After talking to Cameron, the head cashier at Barnes & Noble, he agreed to carry a few copies of my autobiographical novel, “Naked Skydiving,” the story of a dream interpreter, traveling throughout west coast before 9-11.
There might also be an open reading at this Barnes & Noble near the 15 freeway on Mira Mesa Blvd this Wednesday night and I’ll read a little from the book and maybe some new work. You can read your own work too! Check back to this blog for details, all thanks to Cameron and the new management at Barnes & Noble. “Naked Skydiving” is available in the fiction section under the S’s for Schaffner, my last name. If I see you in the store, I’ll autograph your copy! Next, I’ll be working to get the book in every Barnes & Noble
I was lucky enough to go to a few classy filmmaking parties last weekend. The first one ended San Diego Film Week.
Here’s a few snaps:
This was the stage where music,comedy and the San Diego Film awards appeared.
Here’s a few ladies enjoying their 2 free drinks at the blackjack table.
Lots of San Diego Film Awards were handed out. I didn’t see most of the films so I can’t really comment on them.
I did attend the San Diego 48hr Film festival and saw a few there.My favorite was called, “Sorry To Bother You.” I don’t think I’d want participate in that festival because you have to pay them to pressure yourself and your cast & crew to finish a film in 48 hours, and besides the little trophy and admiration of your peers, the financial return seems minimal for all your expenses. True, low or no budget films must be done within a few weeks before participants lose interest. But 48 hrs seems crazy to me.
Festivals abound around the world, online and they are a great way these days to establish yourself as a filmmaker.Lots of trophies were handed out that night like faux Oscars, but I won’t bore you with them. Anyway, the price of admission included 2 free drinks and 2 tacos. Rice and beans were $6.00 extra. Ouch! I came up with my own drink called the Rummelon which is made of rum, watermelon juice and club soda or sprite. Yum!
Snakeoil cocktails provided the watermelon juice and mixed my original creation. Delicious!
Other than that, there was supposed to be a burlesque show but they thought children would attend so all we got were these “cigarette” girls handing out candy instead.
The next night, was an Oscar party at a fancy La Jolla Mansion for sale. Call me, Jordan Schaffner BRE#01736921 @ 619-346-9433 to make a serious offer over $10 million.
Here’s where you enter and walk the red carpet.
There was also a ballot to guess the Ocar winners with a fairly large cash prize.
Great views all the way to the pacific.
This is the pool.
What a place to watch the Oscars, from your own infinity pool overlooking La Jolla Beach!
Here’s a few great 🔥 fireplace shots
Some beautiful flowers from the party.
And the Oscar goes to…”La La Land,” no, no, I mean “Moonlight.” Well, we all know that story by now.
As I understand it, the Mexican Day of the Dead, is a holiday that lets people visit with their deceased relatives and it has a sense of humor about it. People bring their dead relatives their favorite food & drink. They are depicted doing many fun things like enjoying music and weddings. Because of it’s proximity to Mexico, Old Town San Diego celebrates the Day of the Dead every year in many of its’ shops & public squares.

After closing the sale of my parents home in Oceanside, unfortunately, my Dad fell down and ended up in the La Jolla VA hospital at the escrow office. A beautiful sweet woman in the parking lot saw it happen, helped me lift him up and gave him some bandages. She really reaffirmed my faith in human nature.
Afterwards, we went to visit him at the hospital. Then, my date & I went to La Jolla shores for dinner. We saw this restaurant called Barbarella that was decorated thoroughly with these scary animated Halloween characters. In fact, it was so scary that my date didn’t want to eat there because of the giant fake spiders, even if they were near a romantic fireplace.
Since my “Day of the Dead” pictures from a few years ago became my most popular blog, I figured that I should share some of these fun early resHalloween images as well. My Dad is feeling better now too.
While eating Hawaiian “pupus”at Peohe’s on the Coronado ferry landing, after writing a real estate offer on the “island,” I got these poetic shots of surfers, doing yoga on their paddle boards. It has been said that photography is all about capturing the moment. These are some of my moments.
One thing about the Fringe Festival is that it can make old deteriorating buildings that are on “the fringe” of acceptability here in San Diego trendy with art. This sexy Burlesque dance troupe is quite an example.
