new movie reviews

I finally posted some new content. Since you've been waiting, there are three new movie reviews. One is a big summer movie report. The other two are single reviews. Enjoy!


dance chicken dance

here's a stupid website that you should check out for fun.

it's subservient chicken

it's a website created by Burger King to promote their chicken tendercrisp sandwiches. It features a man in a chicken suit who dances around. I think it's been around for awhile but I heard about it on the Diggnation podcast.



it's almost the end of july?

I can't believe it's almost the end of July. I've been traveling a lot again to visit family. I've been attempting to slow down the work patterns, but now that I'm used to this pace I find myself needing to work more.

I'm saving up a few dollars trying to pay off credit cards and getting ready to buy a new computer. I know i've been talking about it for, I don't know - 2 years?, anyway, I'm finally going to do it soon.

I'm very slow and methodical about almost everything I do, because I like it to be done right. But it also slows down the output.

Podcasts are now available on iTunes. Hope you're checking them out. They are quite cool. TONS to choose from.

It's been a busy summer. I should write some movie reviews soon. I haven't put up any since May. UGH! I need to make a list to keep pushing forward with my moviemaking goals, since they are getting lost in the shuffle of my life.

But here's some updates:

I have some more stuff shot for a short video which I hope to release by September online. I'm looking into all kinds of VOD RSS type feeds, rather than direct downloads. I'm just looking. This next movie will be a direct download I'm assuming though.

I submitted a script to the Blue Cat screenplay competition. I was very encouraged, since I got some good comments. Of course, I didn't win anything and they had lots of "problems" with the script, but all in all, I'd recommend it and I wil submit again in November when they open up a new competition. The best part is that you get a critique afterwards. Mine was honest, direct and very helpful I found. I will use the critique to revise the script.

I'm still working on my 2nd full length script and I will strive to have it done by the end of September. I need to make some time to sit down with it. Then the plan is to break right into a third script. The first two are more comedic and romantic in nature. The 3rd and possibly 4th script are quite different. One is a sci fi story that my brother wrote a short story on. The last is an outright thriller, that I think if I write it right, I could make that my feature directing debut. It's all still in the thinking stage, but I told you I was methodical.

Thanks for reading and visiting Talk to you later.


my mac to run intel?

Well, it's official. After weeks of rumors, Steve Jobs announced that the Mac platform will make a transition over the next few years to intel processors. I'm still not sure how i feel about this one exactly. I love my iMac and want to buy a new machine, but this whole changeover sounds like it could get a little messy. I guess time will tell. Jobs says that OSX already runs on intel. I just don't want my mac to start to look and feel and work like a PC. But I would love my mac to be cheaper and faster.


movies arriving day and date in theaters and video

This is an interesting story.

2929 Entertainment is planning on releasing movies simulataneously on home video and in theaters. It's an interesting idea. I heard they did that in Japan with some releases to combat piracy. I'm not sure I'm in favor of it for all movies, but for some smaller movies, it's probably a really good idea. Because if you're not living in LA, NYC, Chicago, etc. A lot of independent movies don't come your way. (Although, I will say that Buffalo, NY has a healthy supply of independent movies.) So releasing them on video right away would allow them to be seen right away by a lot more people. I'm still one of those that enjoys going to movie theaters and seeing movies on the big screen. But I also don't like downloading movies that look terrible. Waste of my time. Anyway, read the article.
