DIARY: Friday, November 14th, 2008

So, after my fainting spell the night before last, I spent most of yesterday sitting around and worrying, which I’m very good at.  Cheating death is a funny thing.  It definitely makes you ask some questions that you wouldn’t normally ask.  For example, who would have found my body?  Would they have attempted mouth-to-mouth?  Would it have bothered them that I was naked?  (Turned them on?)  Would they have taken pictures of my corpse with their camera-phone and posted them on the internet?  How would my friends around the w...Read more

DIARY: Thursday, November 13th, 2008

So, I’m pretty sure that I fainted for the first time in my life last night. 

I got out of bed around 1:30 a.m.  I staggered to the bathroom like I usually do.  Then, I remember briefly feeling like I’d had one too many or something...

The next thing I knew, I was waking up on the bathroom floor.  I was on my back.  The towel holder next to the commode was pulled off the wall.  The stuff on the counter was knocked onto the floor.  The trashcan was turned over.  And I had a bump on my forehead. 

I...Read more

"FILMMAKER: A DIARY BY GEORGE LUCAS" (1968)

In 1968, George Lucas, while still a student at USC, directed "Filmmaker: A Diary By George Lucas," a documentary about the making of Francis Ford Coppola's "The Rain People." 

According to "Skywalking," Dale Pollock's biography of Lucas, it was Lucas who came up with the idea of making the documentary and Coppola readily agreed.  The film was paid for, using funds from Coppola's still photography budget. 

Armed with $12,000 and an unused product...Read more

JCVD

Hey, guys.  When Charlie and I attended the Cannes Film Festival this past summer in regard to "Jasmine," we were more than a little surprised by the ads we kept seeing for Mabrouk El Mechri's new film, "JCVD."  It isn't that we had anything against Mechri, per se.  The reason, rather, was because the poster looked like this...

Now, I don't know what kind of star power Van D...Read more

FREE THE WEST MEMPHIS 3

"Paradise Lost: The Child Murders at Robin Hood Hills" (1996) is a fascinating documentary about the murder of three children in West Memphis, Arkansas in 1993.  It spawned a sequel, "Paradise Lost 2: Revelations" (2000).  For many years, I've strongly believed that the "West Memphis 3" deserve a new trial.  I'm not a legal expert by any stretch of the imagination, but the facts, as I understand them, lead me to believe that a miscarriage of justice has occurred.  But, don't take my word for i...Read more

R.I.P. PAUL NEWMAN

I just heard that Paul Newman died.  It's late, almost 3:17 a.m., and, as you can imagine, I'm extremely depressed by the news and hoping it's not true.  Unfortunately, I have a feeling that it is, since Newman has been battling lung cancer recently.  I mean, seriously, how many more people need to die from cancer before we cure this shit?  Anyway, that's another blog.  Rest in peace,...Read more
