Burn, Hollywood, Burn

In the wake of Ms. Knowles’ halftime, er, extras yesterday, figured I’d share an interesting incident on the LA “subway” (quotation marks in deference to my Long Island wife, who mockingly chuckles whenever hearing “subway” outside the context of NYC’s) this past Friday, an experience which still leaves me shaking my head at how […]

From The Trailer Park -- The Young Messiah

Keeping on the centurion theme re. Jesus, Sean Been rocks his role in an adaptation of Anne Rice’s “Christ the Lord: Out of Egypt.” Had the honor of seeing a screening of this a couple weeks ago, and writer-director Cyrus Nowrasteh and his co-writer wife Betsy succeed where far too many Christian filmmakers fail: gifting […]

From the Trailer Park — You’re So Cool, Brewster

This Afternoon’s Broadcast Is Brought to You by …

David Bowie and Pet Shop Boys. RIP, Major Tom.

R.I.P. — Dan Haggerty

Here’s Dan’s visit to Jack Marino’s Warrior Filmmaker show for some walks down memory lane.

R.I.P. -- David Bowie

The man who sold the world, Aladdin Sane, Ziggy, the Lodger, Serious Moonlighter, etc. and on and on, passed away following a months-long battle with cancer. Words of appreciation for all his tunes and acting performances not nearly enough. Rest in peace, David Jones. Prayers and condolences towards his family.
