Ball handling...

So it's been a while since I updated- and of course I'm updating with probably the most disturbing image for your fireplace mantle I've ever seen.  I discovered this in a card store where I live and the longer I stared at this diorama the more fucked up it became- enjoy.

Inspirational night with Crispin Glover

It's been about a week ago tonight since I traveled to NY with $80 bucks in my pocket to see one of my fellow filmmaker/artist/writer/actor- a hero of sorts to me. A cat that beats to his own drum within the Hollywood corporate entity. Mr. Glover's one man slideshow and film presentation was mesmerizing, I admire the hell out of this guy.

Mr. Glover served up his one man show at the IFC in NY all last week. I scraped up a few bucks to buy tickets weeks ago for the Mon and Tues sold out shows. I had been waiting patiently for three years for him to come back to the East Coast and he delivered above and beyond the call of duty, it was worth the wait. 

First up was his Slideshow- Mon night he read from (6) books and Tues he read from (8). Both nights were great to watch- especially the second night where you could watch more of his performance and less on the large slideshow since a few books were repeats. His material was very funny to just plain twisted-I loved it! 

Mon night he showed "It's Fine, Everything is Fine," a film he co-directed alongside David Brothers with script written by the star of the film Steven C. Stewart. I won't fill you in on the plot since it's the whole experience you need to be apart of. Let's just say that it was a very personal film to make by the cast and crew and an equal to witnessing. Afterwards, Mr. Glover appeared to answer questions about the film, his books and acting career. 

Now Mr. Glover did mention he peruses the internet to see what people say about his shows with some comments from patrons saying that they are bent that he doesn't answer all questions and goes on long tangents- his answer to this is that he likes to elaborate so that multiple questions are answered before they are asked. Personally it's a great trait to have and work with, it delivers more of a personal touch to an intimate evening to say the least. He talked for probably an hour and a half- it was incredibly informative and inspiring. I only wish he could have gone on longer.

Tue night he showed the first film in the series "What is it?" Which he directed. This was a very different film on many levels. But what I came away with, is that here is a filmmaker who can truly throw himself into what he loves and believes in and makes it work. Work in the sense of the message he wants to get across in his art. "What is it?" again needs to be experienced. Because anything I say here may get taken out of context so seeing is believing.

I left with such a high of inspiration, that I drove three and a half hours back home that night after the second show, wide awake, thinking about my path and what I want and how I need to get there. It was refreshing to see someone I grew up with on screen to be 10 feet away and fulfill his dream as an artist that goes beyond his acting career and is able to keep it alive outside the Hollywood machine. My only regret is that I didn't have enough cash to buy one of his books to sign. I had just enough cash to get home using my last coin for gas. I wanted to wait in line just to shake his hand and thank him for the evening. But I felt like a bit of a tool- Next time I'll be better prepared. 

Thank you Mr. Glover, you're a true professional and inspiration, keep you dream alive.

Filmmaker David R. Williams- sentenced today

Received this today in my email- My relationship with David R. Williams started with him hiring me to direct "Prison of the Psychotic Damned." It was a ridiculous shoot that myself the DP and the small, yet  fresh faced crew shot 18 hours a day in just 8 days. I spent months cutting it and now like the plague- it's out there in our ethos. -that's my 2¢

David Lynch's new commercial spot for Dior

Just got this sent to me and I watched the entire 16min short called "LADY BLUE SHANGHAI" which stars French actress Marion Cotillard who's beauty enraptures us, taking us along in this Lynch-topian journey that I personally love. Waiting for Mr. Lynch to produce a piece of work, whether it be furniture, a commercial or film. It's always like Christmas morning when it is finally unveiled. I always manage to get lost within his dreamscape and continue to want more. This little nugget is the perfect slice of warm apple pie.

Jonsi @ The House of Blues 5.5.10

I had the fortunate opportunity to see Jonsi (Sigur Ros) the other night at the HOB in Boston- It was a phenomenal show. I had seen him preform with Sigur Ros twice before and he/they always delivered. So seeing him on stage again with a new troupe and accompanied with sets and a media background of an animated wolf chasing a deer to the last song "Grow Till Tall" which was a digital barnstorm delight of destruction. Jonsi is the consummate professional. If you like his sound and the music he delivers, I highly recommend to anyone, run don't walk to his current tour. It will move the most jaded man or beast. As well as Sigur Ros when they tour again-

Below is a video called "Sinking Friendship" which he performed that night- though not shot there. It was the best video representation I could find. - Enjoy

Here is "Grow Till Tall" shot in Vancouver- u get the idea- the video doesn't do the show justice. It's just a taste.

"Have a seat"

"Cookin Legs"

"Hang'em high Harry"

"Where they put the bodies"

A series of pictures coming from visiting a haunted hospital on Martha's Vineyard this past week. It was built back in the late 1880's and served as a Navy Hospital for many years. This was the incinerator where they burned the bodies- after they passed away. Creepy place.

Ferraby Lionheart- on tour

- 10 days after seeing Jonsi, I was able to secure a $10 ticket to see another artist who over the last year has helped me get through some tough times with his whimsical earthy, folk music that I grew up loving as a child on Martha's Vineyard from predecessors like Dylan, Taylor and Stevens to name a few. Ferraby Lionheart's new album "The Jack of Hearts" like his previous endeavors are a welcoming slice of warm apple pie that whenever I pop the cd in or listen to it on my Ipod- it's like seeing an old friend again and picking up where you left off. He'll be playing in Cambridge Boston at TT The Bears and after seeing his last years performance which he opened for Noah and the Whale- (in my humble opinion he ran circles around Noah.) I can't wait for another night of killer music. Enjoy his video below and support this musician- he is one cat just like Jonsi/Sigur Ros who you feel really honestly truly loves what they do and their music shows us just that. That is magic-that is honesty-

Vulva Scent

Yes exactly what the title says. I get these little nuggets from friends sometimes and thought to pass it along here. It's a scent that smells like a woman's flower. Made in Europe and the commercial is below. Some very fun stuff, if you're alone and needing some least you can spritz this on your "magic wand."

Enjoy and yes you can also buy t-shirts

Bill Paxton Pinball

There are some things money can buy and with a little love and dedication, this is an example of just that. I'm a huge fan of Bill Paxton and when a friend sent me this- I wish there was a way to magically transport me to this gentleman's house for even an hour. Just to send those balls flying.

I would hope that if you lost a round that he has it programed to say, "Game over man!"

One can only dream. Kudos brother!
