Word up

Practice picture


I LOVE the killers and i dont care for Bright Eyes too much. I DID love this song from Cassadega and for the Killers to have covered it already makes me get a semi, but for it to be this good?! wow.

Blink - Flattery or mad?

okay -- i am going to take this as flattery becuase estevan is a much better director than i will ever be but i approached blink in December with a couple buddies to shoot THIS EXACT VIDEO (below) and i sent them MY video i did with Dave Carlock as a reference for what i wanted it to look like... here's mine, then what was just put out today:

i couldnt be MORE stoked to have seen that video they put out but i wanted to be the one to shoot it. I am WAY flattered that the video turned out to look like what i had already shot but a little bummed i wasnt able to get involved. :(


Last night i got to see Back To The Future for the first time on the silver screen at the arclight in Sherman Oaks and i can not tell you how amazing it was. It never looked so good -- i cant wait for the blu-ray version which will come CLOSER but not quite as clear as that film print. I saw so much stuff i never noticed before... and i notice a lot of tiny details in that movie. I mean, i always see something new every time i watch it but this was different. anyway, i then went to google-image-search some BTTF images to accompany this article and came across a blog that had this music video in it. it is AMAZING -- especially for BTTF fans. enjoy!

HAHAHA I love this video

My buddy Robert and I went to CSUN together and I helped him make his reel site which is basically MY reel site with HIS videos. I am uber un-creative. anyway, he directed this while we were at CSUN and it STILL makes me laugh to this day. Some of the writing wasn't the best in the world, but this is DIRECTION i'm looking at and the talent is also uh-ma-zing. Check it out!

Stallone @ CSUN

Green Day

Lots of music stuff today... this band certainly knows how to make me stoked... they better not fuck this up.

New Death Cab!

i LOVE this band... top 10 for sure

i have been SO into Four Year Strong and since people think theyre just too high and mighty to go to purevolume or last.fm to listen to their music, i figured i would take it upon myself to serve them some good and post their music for all of you to hear (all 4 of you). anyway, this is Four Year Strong and they've been blowing my mind for about a year. This is a demo version of their song "Bada Bing! Wit A Pipe!".

TOTALLY love this band. in my top 10 for sure.

i couldnt have said it better!

Seriously, ive been saying it since day one. Click HERE for the full story. My favorite excerpt:

"I don’t know how she does it, but Katy manages to take really big tits and a nice body and still be boring, even annoying. I’ve never seen anything like it. She’s an inspiration to boring chicks everywhere, the Michael Jordan of mediocrity. Those tits might as well be on a empty can of Coke. "

Tyler Durden FTW.

An amazing film....

NO! not watchmen -- i probably wont even see that. I'm talking, of course, about de palma's 'Phantom of the Paradise'. I have always loved this movie and never 'got' why so many people loved 'rocky horror' and had never heard of or liked 'phantom'. Better movie, better music, and - as amazing as tim curry is and will always be (especially in rocky horror), a better cast! i LOVE this movie and what got me blogging about it is my buddy robert has a new blog called aweekahead in which he reviews movies of new and old and his first review was of 'phantom' and i was SO stoked to see it get some much-deserved love, i figured i, too, would blog about it. so... blog away i did and here we are. check out his review here.

UPDATE: i just looked up phantom on imdb pro and theyre REMAKING IT?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!! WTF?! srsly, im not pleased. PLEASE see the original.. here's the opening scene... AMAZING!!!!!!!

My first film

A Day of Endings
Here is the first thing i ever cut on a non-linear system. I used Media 100 back at Hollywood high School in 2000 and I wouldn't change a single cut in here (except there is a rogue frame in the film i like to think i put there on purpose as as homage to "Fight Club".

anyway, i love this movie... it was written by my good friend Stephanie Carter and shot and cut by me. LOVE IT.

this post is ALSO my tests for incorporating shadowbox into this here blog so... RSS readers: bear (bare ?) with me... im working
