Bless them.

I just found out today Kodak has kindly given Broke Toe Productions a grant.
It has to be spent on film stock.
Looks like our next piece is gonna be on 16mm.
Hey now!

I have nothing to say.

New games with old films!

Alright people, heres how it works.
Take a classic film. This week it's "Voyage Dans La Lune".
Turn down the volume on the Youtube player and you pick a song to go with the film.
Comment what you think is the best match up, or if you have any ideas for another film to play this game with post it as well.
I dug "Pink Moon" for the loading and shooting of the rocket.
Have fun.
No smashing pumpkins.

What a lucky lady.

Today Winnie Langley turned 100 years old.
Good for her, considering she has smoked five butts a day since the age of 7.
I was at the birthday and had a twenty dollar bet with a 89 year old snuffer that old Winnie couldn't fester up the lung power to blow out her three candles. I lost but only by a technicality. If you ask me, phlegm spewing on the cake, all the candles and a sea of reporters dosen't REALLY count as lung power.
I tried to keep my money but he was jonseing, so I, like our dear Winnie, coughed up the green.
Long live the debauchees!

Bring yer' mind so they can blow it.

Film Forum is at the end of "NYC Noir" month, and I intend to cash in before the reels book it.
This Wednesday is a two for one showing of "Midnight Cowboy" and "The Panic in Needle Park".
Everyone has seen the first, and though I can't honestly attest to the latter, it still sounds brilliant.
The show starts at 7:30 and if the Film Forum is in her pretentious mood, perhaps we'll be lucky enough to see them on 35mm prints.
A Kevin Gannon thumbs up, bitch.

This past Thursday was the REC-Youth 4th Annual Multi-Media Festival.
It's something the boys and I have been looking forward to since last year, and let me tell you, I'm already looking forward to next years.
We entered two films this go-round: "Monster in My Closet" and "Educating Cattle".
Both swept the awards.
"Educating Cattle" took home best documentary and best editing. Robbie Cline (the man pulling the strings) should be proud.
"Monster" won best acting. It went to Carlos Galarza, Anthony Jessel and myself. The stage was crowded and the folks loved us. It also took home best narrative.
We love making movies, and losing sucks, so we were all glad to come home full handed.
Last year "The Art Show" won best narrative as well, making us 5 time winning filmmakers.
The show was put together brilliantly and all the work was loads of fun to watch.
I hope to see some more of you folks there next year, maybe even on the big screen.

I'll introduce the boys in the next couple posts. Together we make the journey.

Self deprecation for all!

All drunks want to be writers and all writers want to be drunks.
This guy did a pretty good job on both ends.

The one and only.

Oh, hello, friend.

It's been a while since I have been on the blogging scene.
Frankly, I'm nervous and feel pressured to entertain you.
To be more frank, this is just a place to go if yer' bored. Maybe there will be a funny story, or a sad story you find funny because it's not about you, or maybe, on a very special day, a hybrid of both.
I see in the near future a site one can go to and learn of a cool show at the Film Forum.
Or maybe see what my film buddies and I have been up to.
Whatever this unpredictable cyber path leads us towards, I can ASSURE you, I will never resort to trite, easilly obtainable web pictures for laughs.
Thanks for reading.
