HERE IT IS! My first short film made with my dad’s Super 8. I shot this to get into filmschool, but it was much more than that. It was the culmination of 21 years of ingesting pop culture, and wanting to purge some of it onto film. HERE’S an expanded version of what’s on the […]

FRAME FETISH (at the movies, on tv, or dvd, or old vhs)

Sure, the very concept of our democracy is at stake (someone say A1 Steak Sauce?), but hey, we’re in the middle of the second coming of the 80s (except this time we’re getting rid of the conservatives) and you must allow just a few minutes (like 127 minutes) to indulge in some frivolous decadence.

News Shmooze (pulp patrol), These Are People Who Died

He was a Jazz guy before there was Rock and Roll, but oh, did he rock and roll. Earl Palmer, drummer for too many hits to mention here, is dead at 84. I had interviewed several members of The Wrecking Crew, and they all mentioned how important he was to the scene, it’s just a […]

The line between thirst satisfying beverage and stimulant addiction had been blurred long ago. I’ve always known that sugar is a drug, and that many of us are addicted to it. But there was much more than […]
