Final shot of the night! #evilmummy #5wits
Spent the evening with Matthew James Thomas and Patina Miller at the @pippinmusical cast recording. #joinus (at MSR Studios)
The Glamsmash boys on set with Einstein, star of client Best Pet Rx Pharmacy’s two new “how to” videos! A really cute dog ALWAYS makes a shoot so much fun.
John Cameron Mitchell on the set of Hedwig and the Angry Inch
So, I was supposed to write something last week and I didn’t because I got really busy. And I went home for a few days (plus Memphis). Plus I bought a new computer (baller!). Anyway…
Film: The Amazing Spider-Man is pretty fun! Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone are great and Uncle President Bartlett is pretty inspired casting (Bartlett For America, son!). I didn’t really care about the mystery/subplot/whatever with his parents’ death (or the script; 3 screenwriters… sheesh) but I guess they’ll flesh it out more later since they’re making a trilogy as that is Hollywood’s wont. Some cheesy moments aside, I totally think it’s worth checking out.
TV: As evidenced by the above, I like Aaron Sorkin. The West Wing is one of my favorite things ever so, even though I recognize a number of the criticisms being lobbed at it, I’m happy happy to wait and see before giving up on The Newsroom. So let’s be patient and celebrate Sam Waterston yelling at people on my HBOGO (baller!).
Music/My Parents Gave Me Some CD’s: I went back home to Tennessee last weekend (baller!) and my parents gave me some CD’s. Two of which, Van Halen’s A Different Kind of Truth and Rush’s Clockwork Angels are awesome! Van Halen sounds like Van Halen again! Diamond Dave’s gettin’ a little older but holy shit Eddie and Alex sound insane again! And the Rush record fucking rocks! If you like either (IF NOT, WHY NOT?!), check them out.
Summer Project: Murder a la Mod is kind of De Palma’s version of Rashomon and it’s pretty cool! Show offy, clever, and a good companion piece to Blow Out. This came with my Criterion Blu Ray (baller!) of Blow Out and it really makes me appreciate that movie even more. It’s really cool to see how much of the De Palma we know was already present this first time out. Next is Greetings & Hi, Mom! See you next week!
