It's Friday the 24th, NOT the 13th. Check ur calendar Mr. JanePublic!

Helping the cast for Friday 13th 4k movie re-boot cast 'get their act together.' Jason's lunch catering came up short on the ordered spring dumplings. Ahhh SHI#%t! bye.

Actor William Katt without his spaceship or bloody prom dress nearby.

We had a most 'unconventional' first audition meet. And now he has the part. Hands Down. Why? Because William rules.. .


Stay Tuned.  bye.  

'The proof is in the pudding.'

Such a great sound score.


Stare at the pool dive while listening to the Morris Albert selected song.


Kim Richards is great.

To hell with the tabloid media nonsense. She's great and has always been. And will always be.


Making a Trailer Tip.

If you are cutting down a 100 minute film into a 2 minute trailer, you have no reason to use anything but the absolute best footage. This may sound like a no-brainer, but many indie filmmakers are afraid to use their best material in the trailer, as they don’t want to give anything away. I’m not suggesting that you give away major plot points or the twist at the end of your film, but don’t be too precious with your material. bye.


The construction of a screening space.

What makes life so challenging . (?)

I'm thinking that finding the right music for a scene is pretty close to politics. bye.

Pizza Friendly.

What's cooking today?
Left over pizza for consumption consideration. ?  ..

 Ummm, No. Bye.

p.s. regarding the new theatrical release of the film, 'Unfriended,' it is an aberration buffet of 'Paranormal Activity' meets 'Blair Witch' meets 'Saw.' This blogger heard someone say: "Well, that was fun but this movie's going to be dated in like six months." Do you feel the same way?"

Answer is- Yes. I do.  bye.

Can a person eat a tuna melt deluxe while blogging at the same time ? How am I supposed to know. I don't (didn't) order the sandwich yet. And by the time it arrives, I'll be watching a movie. So. I cannot answer that question, at this point in time. Bye.

Ibsen's 'GHOSTS' playing at BAM until May 3rd !

Describe the story...ok. I will. Helen Alving is about to dedicate an orphanage she has built in the memory of her dead husband, Captain Alving. She reveals to her spiritual advisor, Pastor Manders, that she has hidden the evils of her marriage. She has built the orphanage to deplete her husband's wealth so that their son, Oswald, might not inherit anything from him. Pastor Manders had previously advised her to return to her husband despite his philandering, and she followed his advice in the belief that her love for her husband would eventually reform him. But, her husband continued his affairs until his death, and Mrs. Alving did not leave him for fear of being shunned by the community.

During the action of the play, she discovers that her son Oswald (whom she had sent away to avoid his being corrupted by his father) is suffering from inherited syphilis . What she considers even worse is that he has fallen in love with Regina Engstrand, Mrs. Alving's maid. Regina is revealed to be an illegitimate daughter of Captain Alving, and thereby Oswald's half-sister.

When he learns all this, Oswald asks her to help him die to end his suffering. The play concludes with Mrs. Alving having to decide whether or not to euthanize him in accordance with his wishes. Her choice is left unknown. bye- until I see you at BAM

But wait a second, YOU cannot see ghosts - but I can! Wanna know why? Cuz cause Jane Public (whoever the heck that is)  LOVES  Ibsen.  

bye again.

“I didn’t know Kurt,” Frances Bean said of her late father, who died at age 27 from a self-inflicted gunshot wound in 1994. But she added that she feels “very very strongly” that he would be happy with the film if he were here today.

“He was a human being,” Frances Bean continued. “And I think that’s been lost within the romanticism and the myth of him and his story." The authorized biography film, Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck, also featuring interviews with Love along with the late Cobain’s parents, sister, first girlfriend, and former band mate Krist Novoselic, opens in select theaters this weekend and will air May 4 on HBO. Can't wait. bye.

CIW and the importance of life choices.

Gursky is just so good.

After shooting with large-format cameras, he scans images and manipulates them, altering and weaving together exposures in post-production, before printing his pictures on a grand scale. Bye.

He is so meticulous and skilled. His work never seems staged because it is not staged. Bye again. 

The making of 1983's Stephen King/ John Carpenter classic, 'Christine.'


John just appears so exhausted and spent, at this point in his life. I'm so grateful for the amazing independent work that he created back in the 80's, despite the epic studio pressures that existed then. He did things 'his way' and that is how they all still have his STAMP on 'em. Even under studio vigilence and contracts, he made his own music, stories and story interpretations. He's great. bye.
