My Homies

My pal Brice Kennedy, lately of BLACK MASS/THE DA VINCI CURSE fame, writes about his adventures on a Hollywood movie set here.

Some might remember that the Saturday Night Live skit "Lazy Sunday" spawned the "Lazy Muncie" 'net phenom, a midwest rap response straight outta my hometown; but now two more Muncie dudes, stationed in Iraq, bring out "Lazy Ramadi." Keep your heads down, Munsonians!

At The Keyboard

Somebody wants to run a 14 Day Screenplay Contest, similiar to the 48 Hour Film Project or 24 Hour Comic Day or National Novel Writing Month or what have you. Hmmmm. I think I wrote BLACK MASS/THE DA VINCI CURSE in 21 days. I rewrote PETER ROTTENTAIL in about three days. Could I do something in 14? I would only have to speed up by one third. I shudder to think.

Happy Mother's Day!

I'm flat on my back sick for Mother's Day, giving my wife one of her worst special days ever. But here are five songs that remind me of her, in honor of the day:

Day After Day, Badfinger

Summer Rain, Johnny Rivers

Boys of Summer, Don Henley

Mull of Kintyre, Wings

You've Got A Friend, James Taylor

The Return of the Outcast Swords

My brother reminded me that I had promised to spend a percentage of my earnings from each check I get from freelance writing on something entirely worthless and fun. Though the casual reader might assume that I get paid in vast drifting dunes of cocaine I actually sometimes get checks, and got one the other day for a project from last year. So I bought this, which I had been eyeing for some time. Don't know if and when I'll ever get to play it, but am interested in reading it.

Sex Machine Keep On Turnin'

When I first started getting into the microcinema world Allen Richards' was THE place to go. Now he reviews SEX MACHINE here.

"Monsters at Play" romps a bit over SEX MACHINE here.

Gimme Five

Now that stings a bit! Ken VanSant gets a love tap from a demon-possessed priest in an FX shot from THE DA VINCI CURSE, formerly known as BLACK MASS. Posted by Picasa

I try to google my own name every few weeks or so. Sound vain or crazy? That's how I find stuff like this, and would never know about prose like the following:

"Razorteeth" is a very bad movie. And yet…I just couldn't take my eyes off it.

And this text from a blog called, simply and with little pretense, the Dalton Blog:
