Still pissed Travolta didn't get the Emmy. He should buddy up with Stallone who lost on CREED and create some kind of new disgruntled 'has beens' hashtag group. bye.

The surprising exclamation mark '!'

Jeb! Bush was halarious in the Emmy opening sequence tonight with his surprise cameo as a cabbie, using witty self-deprecating humor and a dumb Vote Jeb! bumper sticker. If only he'd done this at the debates, he was so genuinely halarious tonight. And Kimmel is kicking ass big time. And WTF - Marcia Clarke came too! Tonight's show rules and has put Oscar night to shame. What is kinda scary now is that this entire thing is proof (like the Trump phenomena) that television has taken over the visual arts inc. corporate market place and the idea of any communal cinema experience will soon be long gone. Time to watch The Shining on DVD before that film gets turned that into some silly Amazon series too (starring Matthew Broderick or Judd Nelson or sumthin' like one of them). But wait a second, watching a DVD means that I'm not sitting in some communal movie theatre...hello!  bye. 






Fingers crossed for the Sweathog tonight !


Looking foward to the Emmys tonight! (Fingers crossed for Travolta aka Vinnie Barbarino).




Bye. 

Oh darn moments.

On 27th street a second bomb is located.

Travolta is nominated an EMMY for Shapiro portrayal !

Sorry Bobby, but Travolta's rendition on ya ruled and deserves this trophy. Go home and 'settle.'  Bye


Awesome film commentary by Pennebaker on the DVD anniversary release.


Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars (sometimes called Bowie 1973) is a 1973 documentary and concert film by D. A. Pennebaker. It features David Bowie and his backing group The Spiders from Mars performing at the Hammersmith Odeon in London on 3 July 1973. At this show, Bowie made the sudden surprise announcement that the show would be "the last show we'll ever do", later understood to mean that he was retiring his Ziggy Stardust persona. Bowie was from Bromley!


The full-length 90-minute film spent years in post-production before finally having its theatrical premiere at the Edinburgh Film Festival on 31 August 1979. Prior to the premiere, the 35 mm film had been shown in 16 mm format a few times, mostly in United States college towns. A shortened 60-minute version was broadcast once in the USA on ABC-TV in October 1974. In 1983, the film was finally released to theatres worldwide, corresponding with the release of its soundtrack album entitled Ziggy Stardust: The Motion Picture.The following year, in 1984, the film was released to home video under the title, Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars: The Motion Picture. The film was first released on DVD in 1998. A digitally remastered 30th Anniversary Edition DVD, including additional material from the live show and extras, was released in 2003. The commentary by D.A. Pennebakbr is so informative and just flat awesome.

Mel aka Mad Max aka Mad Mel gets standing ovation.


That said, The Entity film's sound designer and composer deserves a standing ovation decades after his great work. A good soundtrack is created and designed with just as much attention to fine detail as a film is cut/edited. ..

p.s. btw, this entire 2016 election cycle has really upset Jimmy Carter and he is now going peanuts right ! (not that his professional record is all that fancy, particularly regarding Israel).


                   

Film struck.


Criterion inspired and curation based streaming site 'filmstruck.com' goes live In November! Ditch your cable bill and chomp on this investment. Way psyched. Bye

Temperature regulated storage archive.

bye, Jill Ireland.

p.s. On the other side of things regarding temperature control, this is what a 4 terrabyte external portable harddrive looks like - not overheated- as it  backs up about a week's worth of editorial cuts and sound work...

9.11.




This day 9  11 may soon be marked as the most infamous calendar day in our country's history, for more reasons than one. Every day gets scarier and scarier in this election cycle. And nothing happening before our eyes and ears appears to be mortally 'rigged.' At all.
and then this...

bye.
p.s.
