Wild Woody

Posted in celebrities, film, France, white people on November 11, 2010 by John

Woody Allen interviewed by the Paris review.

Allen talks about comedy, working to your ability, and his adventures in prose. A little trim on the film side but otherwise earnest and smart.

Angry David Mamet

Posted in california, celebrities, film, men with tags , , , on March 24, 2010 by John

As friendly a reminder as David Mamet can give:

(An internal memo from the CBS show “The Unit” which Mamet Executive Produced)

“TO THE WRITERS OF THE UNIT

GREETINGS.

AS WE LEARN HOW TO WRITE THIS SHOW, A RECURRING PROBLEM BECOMES CLEAR.

THE PROBLEM IS THIS: TO DIFFERENTIATE BETWEEN DRAMA AND NON-DRAMA. LET ME BREAK-IT-DOWN-NOW. Continue reading

Gilmore Boy (or Post Grad)

This is just to say that Nick Becker has a review of Post Grad on Tiny Mix Tapes and that you will most likely be seeing other reviews of other films by the same man on other occasions soon. Keep an eye out. I’m so proud.

For those of you who weren’t fortunate enough to be in the Southern California area this past Spring, here is a chance to take a peek at the latest masterpiece from one of the fastest growing voices in film. Emett Casey’s Peter & the Mischievous Hanky blew audiences away during it’s premiere screening at the Marion Knott Studios so much that it was cordially asked to re-screen the very next month!

Take a gander for yourself – and if that doesn’t satisfy your gutteral and filmic urges then feel free to explore our newly expanded website. Stay tuned for more info on a very special screening of Alicia Peterson’s much delayed but all-the-more anticipated Golden Afternoons!

What theater should I expect to see this melodramatic spectacle, you ask? Oh no, put on your boots and pack up your picnic supplies because we’re heading out to the beautiful Tujunga Canyon. Come for the micr0-commercial & home brewed beer in a hand-built kegerator by Mr. Clark Baker and stay for the amazing spectacle of New American Cinema.

Daniel Day & Federico.  But in a stupid Baz like musical.  Oh, they’re playing with my heartstrings.

Prayer of the Rollerboys

Posted in art, celebrities, children, cigarettes, classics, criminals, film, los angeles, rollerblading on April 27, 2009 by Shiv

Better Say Your Prayers, Boy….They’re Coming.

I watched this movie last week. It’s damn damn damn good. Prayer of the Rollerboys stars Corey Haim as the virtuous rollerblading pizza-delivery-guy Griffin who’s just trying to keep his little brother from harm’s way…that is to say, away from their old neighbor Gary Lee, the leader of the fascist Rollerboys (that is: the rollerblading, drug dealing, white supremacist gang that has virtually taken control of post-apocalyptic LA). This movie rules. Here’s a clip.

I Can’t Fell My Face or… My Face Can’t Be Felt? (finally)

Posted in 2009, black people, celebrities, mixtape, music with tags on March 31, 2009 by kevin

Four songs, uh, leaked sort of, and honestly they were kind of disappointing for two of the best in the “game.” I guess I feel this one is the best. Stevie Wonder beat, a few decent Wayne lyrics and some underwhelming Santana (who can be great). “I’m homer/ and your a simp’ son/ and i’m pimp son.” I actually found one of the blog responses really funny (even as a Wayne fan). Jump for it. Continue reading
