Good Times are here again!!!

Just returned from Cinema Wasteland, a Ken Kish extravaganza, pulled off with his usual panache and aplomb. 42nd St. Pete was there, and I got to meet his awesome dog, Bootz. Bootz has a backstory that would make a good noir movie. Wasteland went off extremely well, lots of fans and movie lovers crowded the […]

Cinemawasteland, 2013

Just returned from Cleveland, and Ken Kish’s Cinemawasteland Movie Expo. Man, o man, what a great time. I was one of several “celebrity guests”…and to my surprise, Ken and 42nd St. Pete (Pete Chiarella) put on a surprise tribute interview and retro of me and my work. It was all filmed for u-tube, and should […]

I-35

Had one of those great “Show Biz” lunches today at Kerby Lane South with Director Drew Thomas, Screenwriter John Herndon, and Casting Director/Actress Deanna Brochin…we are prepping “I-35” a break-out thriller penned by Herndon. Director Thomas plans to shoot the film in a new and unusual visual style, using mostly dashboard cams, i-phones, video, drone […]

Slack…a decieving mindset.

Am alll jazzed that it looks like Buddies Drew Thomas and John Herndon are close to rolling camera on their new film, working title “Frame Switch .” Drew has a totally new and unique approach to how various cameras manage to “catch” and “capture” different realities …it’s a gripping tale, as “now” as tomorrow morning…can’t […]

Tusitala—A Teller of Tales!

I finished a short filmed monologue for Robert Stikmanz’s CELEBRATION 3000…his personal Web-wide homage to all things artistic, inspirational, incendiary, musical, thoughtful, et al. I wrote and did a performance piece ona man who thinks he sees Jesus, sitting at a bus stop.

Cinema Vertie, or flim on the down low.

Well, so far, it has been an interesting year, starting with my friend, Don Coscarelli, debuting his new film, John Dies At The End, at Austin ‘s SXSW festival. I attended with Stuntman/actor Bob Ivy and his fiancee Larissa, who turned out to be a wonderful woman, born and raised in Kiev. This was her […]

Looks like I will be making a DVD release for Rainy Day Friends within days…Huzzah…I am jazzed about this, and will be making announcement soon. Things are also swirling around the cinematic loop […]

Shared a table with my good buddy, Joe O’Connell (Evacuation Plan), and also bumped into Lester Morris, a droll writer from England who never fails to charm the pants right off the day, and his co-pilot, Denny Denniger, also a writer of note in the […]

Movies, conventions, Bob Burns and Stuff

Had a great chat last night with Pete and Todd on Grindhouse Radio…surprise guest was the always enjoyable, affable Ken Kish from Cleveland’s Cinema Wasteland. Hadn’t talked with him for awhile, and we had some belly-thumping laughs…also, recalling Bob Burns, an Austin actor who introduced us to begin with. Bob did the sets for the […]
