"Reproduced and Damaged" — Woody Allen Tries to Sell an Action Movie



My podcast partner Mike Lacy wrote, directed, and stars in this short film he made at Cannes last year. The kid's got skills!

Joe Pass & Ella Fitzgerald - Duets in Hannover 1975

The incomparable Joe Pass plays the finest chord melody jazz guitar here before accompanying the equally gifted Ella Fitzgerald at an intimate concert in Hannover, Germany. There's nothing finer to be found in the world of music. One voice and one guitar tells the whole story of harmonic and melodic truth. Sublime. 

GHOSTBUSTERS 2016 — TRAILER



People are losing their shit (and not in a good way) over this funny-ass trailer. Stand aside clowns and let the comediennes do their thing. Rock it sisters!

In episode four, Mike Lacy and I drink Flower Power IPA (Ithaca Brewing Co.) and discuss Andrzej Żuławski's 1981 psychological thriller POSSESSION. Bon appetite.

THE GHOST OF FRANKENSTEIN — POSTER

Ghost of Frankenstein

It's not everyday you see a horror movie poster this cool. I've never seen "The Ghost of Frankenstein" but it goes on my list as a result of the poster. What a beauty!

Fillmore Towne Cinema Cameo in "Pee-wee's Big Holiday"

Pee-wee's Big Holiday

Pee-wee's Big Holiday2

The illustrious Fillmore Towne Theatre (the oldest cinema in all of California — Mary Pickford performed on its stage) gets a cool cameo in "Pee-wee's Big Holiday." Of course the "old highway" is in the opposite direction, because that's how they do it in the movies. I had the pleasure of seeing "Ratatouille" there before the cinema closed in 2011 due to lack of financial support. The  landmark cinema (located at 338 Central Avenue) opened in 1916. I love this theater, and evidently I'm not the only one. I hope one day it can be reopened. In the meantime, keep an eye out for it in "Pee-wee's Big Holiday." It comes up just after the milkshake scene!
