I got bad and then good news.. Bad news: they have not asked me back to film the behind the scenes material for the DVD. Good news: They want to expand Knights of the Guild podcast to include live set interviews. Besides it's regular podcasts, Knights of the Guild will also release companion piece to the webseries. When they release new episodes we will release a coinciding podcast for that episode. So you watch the episode and then listen to the podcast for some behind the scenes action of that episode.
I'm sad that I won't be doing BTS anymore but excited to take Knights of the Guild to a whole new level.
First day was a lot of fun, of course I can't say much about it other then I got some good BTS interviews and I can't wait to get started on these special G4 (Guild Season 4) episodes.

I had a great time as I miss seeing these guys everyday. We talked a little about work but mostly about a TV show we all love to watch and use to discuss the next day Lost.
I hope to have lunch with the guys once a week.

I headed out and went shopping at Target and then picked up some lunch at El Pollo. I got to the dental office around Noon (the time they told me he would be done). When I walked in they said it would be another 45 minutes until they were done and then he would have to recover from the anesthesia, which could take an hour or so. I hung out in the waiting room, watching Deal or No Deal. The nurse came out and chatted with me about what Harry might go through and how to deal with the swelling.
They finally brought him out around 1:30 in a wheelchair, he looked groggy. He asked about this glasses which weren't on his face and the nurse had to run back and get them. They wheeled him out to the truck and I helped him get into his seat. We stopped by CVS to order the Meds he had been prescribed. His dentist prescribed Vicodin for the pain and Amoxicillin (an antibiotic) for the extraction.
We got home and I sat him down in his recliner, took off his shoes and got him as comfortable as I could. He was still very groggy and slept on and off as we watched TV. About 2 hours later the effects from the anesthesia wore off and he was in so much pain. I feel horrible seeing him in that much pain. I quickly got him a Vicodin from a previous dentist visit and a cold pack for his face. He took the pill and placed the pack on his face. The cold pack helped dual the pain slightly until the Vicodin could do it job. I had to head back to CVS to pick up his other meds but when I felt he looked like he was doing better and when I got home he was just fine.
The rest of the day was uneventful, taking his Vicodin every four hours that managed the pain, he was able to eat dinner that night and he very little swelling and not much bleeding. All in all with exception to the 20 minute of EXTREME pain this visit to the dentist wasn't so bad.. well if you don't call paying the $10,000 dentist bill painful.

Today Harry had a dentist appointment, since one of his teeth had been hurting for the past 2 weeks. So we got up early and drove to his dentist in Van Nuys. Yeah.. that’s not exactly around the corner from where we live, but he really likes this dentist, and that's saying alot as he's not a big fan of any dentists.
After the exam here is what they want to do.
- Extraction of 1 Molar
- Root Canal Work on 2 Molars
- Temporary cap 2 Molars
- Deep Cleaning and Tartar Removal
- Having 2 Crowns made
With the price of the anesthesia included with the dental work it will cost us about $ 10.000. That was not planned and it's even tougher because I am out of work but will manage and though we don't really want to pay that kind of money, don't have much of a choice.. Harry is in constant pain and that's not good and I would pay whatever the price was to take away that pain. Will be going tomorrow to do the actual work.

I was privileged enough to be invited to The Guild’s Season 4 Read Through. This is where all the actors come together around a table and read the script from beginning to end. Of course I’m sworn to secrecy but do manage to talk to some of the actors and staff about returning for Season 4 and what they hope for their characters. Hope you guys enjoy it and gets you excited for Season 4.
Thank you again for all your support, we do this podcast because we are fans and more importantly for the fans.
Kenny & Jenni

We did have one scare as we were half way through recording part 1 and Audacity (the program I use to record the podcasts) suddenly went funky and became unresponsive. I did everything I could to try and save our work that we had done the past hour. Suddenly everything crashed. Figured we were screwed so I started everything back up and when I started Audacity a window popped up and said "do you want to recovery previous work".. relief washed over me as I clicked YES.. we manage to save the majority of it and lost the last ten minutes of our recording.
Now all I have to do is edit them, add the SFX, level them, convert them and then upload them.
