On October 17, 2012, My family and I decided to make a drive to Fremont St in Las Vegas, Nevada to go and see the light show and just stroll around. We parked our rental car and we walked to the street. Now when we were walking through the Fremont St, I noticed a huge crowd and I thought something was going on because they are barricades all around. As we got closer, I saw CSI On the chairs, at this point I was getting really excited, and I did more observing to see that Actor Ted Danson was 15 Feet away from me. I said Hi Ted! He looked and waved at me, so then afterwards, I got way to the front and We were watching the “Strip Maul” Season 9 Episode 13 to be aired November 28, 2012, and I got super excited to watch this take place, and then I saw George Eads, and Jorja Fox along with extras. This time I got really excited. Jerry Bruckheimer was also there sitting and observing and directing on what was going on. At this point, I was there for over 2 and a half hours. For a scene that takes 5 minutes or 8 minutes it takes over 3 hours to film and it looked like we had just got there when they started. It is quite interesting how they film murder scenes and how they quickly get dressed behind the scenes an come back out. Ted Danson was wearing the exact same thing when I saw the real episode last week. Because Ted Danson was in Cheers, I yelled and said “Ted, does everyone know your name?” its the theme song quote that I used and people around me were laughing and they said, that is original. Then I heard that they usually film on Fremont St and those parts of Las Vegas. Not much toward the hotels down the strip. It was incredible. When I saw George Eads, he waved at me too and smiled. They do not look at all like how they look on TV. They look so much better in person.
Now, as they were wrapping up, Actress Jorja Fox walked right beside me to head to the other scene which was set up across the other street. It is so cool how they do the scenes. I couldn’t believe I saw Jerry Bruckheimer. He does most of the CSI: Series and he is a great director. Talk about being at the right place at the right time. Whenever your in California, Vegas, New York, Chicago, your always bound to come across a movie or TV series being filmed, but sometimes they do it all in a studio too, but it is extra awesome to see it unfold right before your eyes. I will never forget this ever in my life. Thank goodness I had taken pictures of it all and Now as I look at these pictures, It is something that I will always remember and finally say I saw these actors. Below are some pictures I Snapped while filming.
I cannot believe how quick the days are approaching to my travels to California and Las Vegas. It will be my first time in both places. I cannot wait until I see Welcome to the fabulous Las Vegas and Welcome to California. I will be visiting Hoover Dam and Grand Canyon as well. Since were right there. All those Western, and all those other types of movies on the desert will be on my mind as I travel from Vegas to California,to name a few such as the Griswolds of National Lampoons Vegas Trip, or those movies where they would be on the desert. Traveling is a big deal in my life and I love to see so many places. I’d like to give a big recognition and thank you to my father for getting me on the way and seeing the world. I have to thank him very much. If it wasn’t for him, I wouldn’t be going to half the places, I would be going to all my life. Traveling is precious to me. I love going to different places in the world and getting out of my city.
You know when some people say when I retire, I will travel, but sometimes when people retire, they start having pains in their body and then won’t be able to travel anymore. My dad always says, go live life to the fullest, your not going to take anything with you. Might as well as invest that money and go away and travel, and enjoy, see the world, You come with nothing and go with nothing. Yes although saving money is important on a rainy day and if something happens or whatever, but if your the type that likes to travel, do it. and go for it.
I love knowing and experiencing different places. I know there is the internet and encyclopedia’s to learn about different countries and such, but it is a lot different when you go there physically and experience it up close and personal. I am so fortunate like I said for my father to have taken me to all these places, and when he sent me to Armenia with my grade 8 Armenian School Graduating class. I was 14 years old when I went to Armenia the first time in summer of 1999. I saw my Armenia Motherland and that was ultimately one of the most beautiful trips I had gone to with touring Paris, France first before getting on the plane to Armenia.
Well, Anyway, I am super excited! Counting down the days.
