Seen here at a recent after-party at the Tribeca Cinemas, he’s been sighted at almost EVERY film-related party I have been to over the past 7 years and even made an appearance at the IFP/LA Spirit Awards post-awards party in Santa Monica. But WHO is he? Inquiring minds want to know….
If you haven’t yet already done so, run, fly, drive, walk, ride or crawl down to Film Forum on Houston St. in NYC to catch Carol Reed’s masterpiece The Third Man, Starring Joseph Cotton and Orson Welles, Trevor Howard, Alida Valli and Bernard Lee. Widely though of as one of the greatest films ever made, it is probably on more top 10 lists than any film in history. Well, I have absolutely no evidence to base that on, but I am, as you may well know, prone to hyperbole.
That said, most serious film people, including Roger Ebert, Elvis Mitchell, Bingham Ray and myself 😉 consider it a masterpiece. It is truely one of the most flawless films ever made. Go. You’ll thank me for it.
To put in succinctly, I think George W. Bush aka The Chimp, is going to lose the election. Of course, anything could happen between now and then (and knowing the pack of criminals, thugs and evildoers that run the government “anything” will happen) but I think if Kerry and the rest of us who want to see Dubya out stay on course and don’t get distracted by how phenomenally stupid Bush is, we can get rid of him. To put it in a way that worked once way back in 1992: It’s the Economy, stupid!
The shirt in this pic can be ordered by clicking on the “Bush is Over” banner in the “Links” section above and on the right (pun intended). They are my very first affiliate and I hope you will all make them welcome and buy lots of shirts from them. The fact that I get a little dough out of this is nice, but hardly the point! Their stylish and functional (keeps your bits from being on show to the public) is modeled here by a very talented filmmaker who shall go unnamed as per his request. I will say that his debut film of a few years ago was fantastic and largely overlooked!
Welcome to my blog. I hope you enjoy your time here. What am I saying!? Of course you will enjoy it. For I am witty, interesting, sexy, brilliant and strangely irresistible. Many of those things only in my own mind, but then, what is a mind for if not to flatter one’s self?
In this blog I will be exploring many things that are of great interest to me. These things may occasionally only be of marginal interest to you, but then again, that’s not my problem. Why? My blog! Some things I will be chatting about are: My wine. My thoughts on film, books, music, politics and the boobs that run our country (and boobs in general…;-), religion and my obsession with miniaturizing animals that are not already miniaturized (whales, elephants, moose, giraffes and great white sharks, especially). Feel free to comment but be forewarned…I do not suffer fools lightly nor do I allow dull or reactionary people to get away with absurd or annoying statements. Remember, this is MY blog and if I want to call you a cretinous waste of space or a nincompoop because you tried to argue that John Ashcroft isn’t one of the 2 or 3 most dangerous men on the planet you can damn well bet I will.
Also, my spelling sucks so if your only comment is that I misspelled “pointless,” “irritating” or “waste of time,” please Leave it Out!
That said, come on in and enjoy!
