Bangor Artist Retreat

“With a film like this, I probably edited the thing in about 3 weeks. You just instinctively know what works, and what doesn’t work. And, you keep moving right along.”

Half the world is composed of people who have something to say and can't, and the other half who have nothing to say and keep on saying it.

RIP Sulli :(

The 'Fake News' Meme Talking Point Generation

Interesting that this has become newsworthy on the eve of tomorrow's scheduled 'democratic' debate on CNN. hmmmmmmmm, smells fishy to me. The video has actually been around for over a year.  Betcha this video will be a topic of discussion tomorrow, as the debaters are preparing to sharpen their tongue blades. Sign of the times ('times', not NY Times ), there is no such thing as this type of a coincidence. And honestly, admit it ... the video is pretty halarious(sic). 


 Last Days . by Gus Van Sant .

A mediation on sadness, desire, and lack of direction, LAST DAYS seems almost to stretch out its minutes. Its rhythms are deliberate, its images lyrical ( courtesy of superb cinematographer Harris Savides - RIP ), its mood alternately somber and droll. While the film moves slowly, its subject is strangely urgent, for you know from the start that this is Gus Van's Sant's interpretation of Kurt Cobain's suicide. And so you know that the vulnerable, mumbling protagonist will soon be dead. It's only a matter of time. And yet the film is less depressing than quietly romantic, more emotionally elusive than morally judgmental. For some viewers, this approach to the legendary Cobain will be frustrating, even boring.That is, its lack of plot and lovely long takes and gently mobile frames reflect the subject's internal state, as he is increasingly dislocated from what appears a generic "rock musician's" existence. bye.

Spoken Word- Brooklyn.

Spoken Word in Brooklyn, NY from Joey Huertas on Vimeo.


This Minneapolis Trump rally tonight is off the chains!!! Holy Coyote. This rally is phonetically marinating the raw meat that will be defining our next election 2020 - which is gonna make 2016 look like perfunctory child’s play. The gloves are off. If Hillary is preparing for a re-match - I'm ordering the popcorn by the truckload!

On a remote island, a troubled artist (Max von Sydow) feels his mind slipping away from him. Troubled by disturbing visions and paranoid delusions, he and his wife (Liv Ullmann) begin to suspect that the haunting memories are the machinations of a bizarre cult that reside on the other side of the island. The leader of this group (Erland Josephson) may hold the key to the artist's delusions.

CBS is on point.  

Jeff Daniels has been cast to play James Comey in an upcoming CBS studios mini-series. Wait a sec, isn’t he the guy who starred in all of the ‘Dumb and Dumber’ movies? You know, the ones he made with Jim Carrey who stared in the, ‘Liar, Liar’ movie. If anything, CBS has a good casting rep. Bye. 

P.S. so when is Hillary planning to make her 3rd run announcement? I predict shortly after this month’s scheduled debate. She’s just sitting back, sippin’ on a glass of Rielsing, and watching them chomp a few more bites out of one another until she makes her declaration. Watch. bye again. 

The importance of coffee.

The Coffee Gallery went through some colorful times, but it was always bohemian to its core. Before life as The Coffee Gallery, it was known as Miss Smith's Tea Room, capturing younger generations of Beat pursuits. By 1954, it was The Coffee Gallery and it was under this name, in 1963, when country-blues hopeful Janis Joplin sang a cappella to earn money and make a name for herself. She was joined by Jorma Kaukonen on occasion and met fellow performers and future band mates Peter Albin and Jim Gurley there as well. The Coffee Gallery trickled away in 1980, was renamed The Lost and Found Saloon and finally became Maggie McGarry's pub in 2006.

While not much remains of the original coffee house, the regular live music, beer and jubilant atmosphere keep those Joplin memories alive. The pub is open most days from 11 a.m. to 2 a.m. Head out for a pint, and while you're there, take a moment to recall her rendition of "Bourgeois Blues." bye.

Derivative wake.

The newly released Todd Haynes film 'Joker' is a derivative work memorializing (and blatantly ripping off) 70's graffiti NYC location films, and the once upon a time hyped anti-hero atmosphere that Hollywood once cashed in on (i.e. Death Wish, One Flew Over The Cuckoos Nest, Mean Streets, The King Of New York, Taxi Driver). Despite this film being an ode to gritty indie 70's 'movies', the emphasized character study of 'Fleck' aka 'Joker' oddly ends up being an unintended brilliant work of eulogy. Joaquin will get nominated for this performance. And, he may win and deserves all accolades. What is most fascinating about this forever interpreted villain icon in this particular rendition is that what Joaquin did was not kin or remotely close to Heath Ledger's timeless performance/interpretation- except for the smeared make-up and long hair. The film Todd Haynes has made with this Joker movie is the best thing that he's done since his early work fresh outta NYU film school- the documentary 'Hated' (about the late G.G.Allin). The film comes at a perfect time for the upcoming 2020 election and the desire for our next voting herd to take down fake news media and political promises that will be made and should be kept. We get what we deserve.
