Happy 89th.

Happy 89th birthday Lorraine Warren!

Herman monster.

Being and feeling comfortable is a very important component to movie(that's a dirty word) editing. No wonder they invented the Herman Miller chair. 

It all makes sense now. Bye. 

and then, God created the smartphone and non-destructive editing :)  

p.s. I think I'm gonna watch Ally Sheedy in HIGH ART tonight - which means now. bye.

Rest in Peace, Paul Kantner. What a year :(

Life is truly stranger than fiction.

Santorum educated the crowd about the reality of statistics regarding PTSD and our U.S. war vets. 22 veteran suicides a day are now documented. If anything, this education and 'poll' alone makes this entire spectacle worth the cameras shutter. Bye.

Helter Skelter ride round da LIVE streamin' networks...


Fox NEWS versus Trump tonight. 
Senator Santorum has just announced that he will join Trump tonight in raising money LIVE for the veterans, pissed off that he and others have been shafted to a smaller (and less visible) 7pm stage. There is a civil war now fully declared within the GOP. I wonder how our veterans feel about that. Hmmmmmmm. The value of our values (i.e. $$$). bye.

Foley at the Sundance Film Festival.

"Heeeeere's Johnny...."

The whole chicken thing is ridiculous and frankly stupid, but the way in which the filmmaker used special fx programs (like AfterFx) to manipulate facial performances, settings and science fiction is ingenious. There is really nothing that a creative person cannot do now in terms of cinematic storytelling, and what makes a dumb video like this so meaningful is that is stands as evidence that what a computer can't do is invent a unique story 'idea.' Life experience, catharsis and the need to express oneself is what keeps us as artists, and our work, pure and human. 
That said- thank you God for this great tool called the home computer.

"All or nothing," said Mr. Haneke.

Haneke is one rare filmmaker who has an innate ability to create musical tone and atmosphere with NO MUSIC! He does it out of the length of his scene takes, and the removal of musical sound as a manipulative mood device. He's truly amazing. In my opinion he is the only amoral film artist out there (not that we need any, that's for sure). All of his works are difficult not because of how an audience could interpret the morality of the work (whether it is good intentioned or bad intentioned), but because of an indifference that he perpetuates towards how he wants his audience to feel. He is one of a kind. I was introduced to his work by a sculptor who handed me, 'Benny's Video.' From that film on, his work remained consistent. I met Haneke at the Angelica Film Center a few years ago, and he was more happy to quietly read his newspaper in the lobby than to go inside and see any film playing that day... he was dead calm - like his films.  bye.

Rest In Peace, Monty Brinson.

The Ziegfeld Theatre, at 1345 Avenue of the Americas, at 54th Street, has been a popular venue for Hollywood film premieres and a favorite of local film buffs. But those things were not paying the bills.

It loses a lot of money,” Mr. Dolan told the magazine. “The theater business is a tough business.” 
This movie theatre was opened to the public in 1969.
