Stayin' Alive.

John Travolta playing Robert Shapiro is too, too good. Priceless. I think that Pulp 
Fiction was not his claim to fame in the resurrection of his career - it's O.J. Simpson (and Travolta's fake glue-on eyebrows). bye.

and let's not forget good ole F. Lee Bailey 's colorful legal career ...
Real life is always stranger than fiction.
And always available- if you want it.

Congrats to AMY.


So how bad was last night's Oscar show weirdness...

Damn. but yeah, it was THAT bad. In addition, Disney had endorsed staff to take down live streams too. The whole event was dreadful and not fun at all. Kudos to the film 'AMY' and also sound editor Kira Roessler, for their deserved wins. bye.

Congrats Ed Lachman.

The fact that you shot the entire thing on 16mm film means that you are a deserving maverick of the spirit this award is meant to represent. Congrats - big time! Timely, now that the last existing film lab in New York has been closed for business. No more labs in New York. Sad times, happy trophy moments. Bye :(

Let's Make America's Oscar Night Great Again!

 This Sunday at 7pm

At 69, Stallone deserves his performance nomination and this accolade...

"Time waits for none."


This is what a 2016 Article 1 hate rally looks like.

"Let's make America great again?"

Another Earth trailer ...


p.s.  Happy 80th B-day Burt Reynolds !

Christie + The Don + Mad GOP + History Repeats Itself =

Let's pray for the best.
This fight has only just begun.
They're trying to kick a dead horse.
p.s. "The more things change, the more they stay the same."

It took this long...but finally- 'it's on'

D Trump :

M Rubio:

War was declared last night with Barbara Bush, Poppy Bush and the Romney sons all sitting in the loud crowd. Tsk, Tsk. Watch Jeb be one of the first to endorse the kid who betrayed him. And now, the Clinton machine will begin rehearsing a strategy to the very thing that had them worried to begin with: Rubio. The Grand Ole Party may have just gotten young last night. Play close attention to K Rove now, because something tells me that he probably didn't sleep much last night in ecstasy. And right as he had started training himself to mantra, "there are no atheists in foxholes.'  bye.

And so the circus show begins...

This is what a film opening looks like...


First 'Virtual Protest' using hologram technology

This is what fighting a 'gag law' looks like in Madrid, Spain ...

Haunting, Ghandi-ish and politically effective. The best thing about it is there can be no true police brutality done to a hologram....but a police ordered power shutdown could be deemed 'brutal.' But then would come the looting. Bye.

p.s. Mixed feelings about this Jeb campaign suspension. It is kinda sad, he will feel that he has forever disappointed 'the greatest man alive' to him- his ailing father :(

bye, Jeb.

Regarding The Rotterdam Film Festival premiere of 'VideofreeX':

In support of friend Skip Blumberg (VideoFreex member and my technical mentor during my Sesame Street television production internship)

Such an inspiring evening and God Bless Sony PortaPAk system! bye.

In the 1960s and 70s, a group of renegade journalists known as the Videofreex democratized the future of the media as they deployed the first handheld video cameras to report and observe the world around them. In HERE COME THE VIDEOFREEX, directors Jon Nealon and Jenny Raskin tap into a treasure chest of restored tapes shot by the Freex, including interviews with icons like murdered Black Panther Fred Hampton and legendary activist Abbie Hoffman, charting the path of this underground video collective from their assignment on the counterculture beat for CBS News to their rupture with the network and creation of a radical pirate television station in upstate New York. An official selection, the documentary captures the pure enthusiasm and revolutionary use of technology of the Videofreex as they changed the nature of journalism through the power of portable video, forging a legacy that has evolved to become today’s all-access media environment.
