I have come to a point in my production career where I look at a picture of a crew lunch and see it in my head as a line item on a budget. This particular lunch was from a GE shoot I did last month at a factory that assembles incubators and baby warmers. The shoot was catered by Black Diamond.
Lydia Lunch is an American singer, poet, writer, actress and self-empowerment speaker whose career was spawned by the New York No Wave scene. Her work typically features provocative and confrontational noise music delivery and has maintained an anti-commercial ethic operating independently of major labels and distributors.
Lunch moved to New York City from Rochester at the age of 16 in 1976, with nothing but “a small red suitcase, a winter coat, and a big fucking attitude. Lunch eventually moved into a communal household of artists and musicians. Soon Willy DeVille gave her the name “Lunch” because she often stole lunches for The Dead Boys.

ARE WE TELLING STORIES ABOUT RACISM IN THE SOUTH!? So, I'm from California, but I was working on a ship that had come into Charleston for some time in drydock, and there was a Subway that the crew went to for lunch. One day, we went in, and this crazy old white guy was shouting racial slurs at the (black and Indian) employees- we, uh, we left pretty quick. This was the same port where a redneck from Minneapolis tried to beat me up in an elevator. In short: drydock sucks.

I recently learned that the best place to shoot anything is at a restaurant, because chances are free food will be involved. I helped out with some pickups for a Bravo show a few weeks ago and one of the places we shot was Good Stuff Eatery. GSE is owned by Spike Mendelsohn, of Top Chef fame (I have written about GSE before here, and about Spike’s pizza place, We The Pizza, here).
The staff plied us with milkshakes and fries and sodas for the four or so hours we were shooting and then treated us to lunch as well. I had a stuffed portobello burger. My favorite thing at Good Stuff, however, remains the flavored mayos. Clockwise from top left the mayos pictured are: chipotle mayo, sriracha mayo, mango mayo, and Old Bay mayo. You’re supposed to dip fries in these, but I mostly just eat them plain with my fingers.
