Away @ Sea

Something to hold you dont dissapoint. I need healthy responses upon my return or no goodies, speaking of goodies....

Im sitting here eating some scrumptious little treats called: SesaKiss

They are tremendously yummy and addictive and can be found and most ethnic grocery stores, i.e. Caputos, Kasia's Deli. They are little wafers packed with sesame seeds in glucose syrup.

Im a big fan of the sesame seed, you should to, or at least check them out. Let me know if there are any little treats that are rare or super good that others should know about.

Ill give it a shot and talk about it on the next show.


Freeway / One Night at the Golden Eagle / Dancing At The Blue Iguana / Spun

There is one common thread linked between all of these movies. Your goal, find out what it is. They are not by the same director, I dont believe they share any actors or writers. They commonality is contextual.

Mostly...they would not happen anywhere else.

Freeway is a oldie must see with a super young Reese Witherspoon a mad hell white trash girl with no hold barred on her tongue and Kiefer Sutherland playing (which he does so well) a maniacal sadistic creep on the prowl and playing doctor.

The result are quotes like this from sweet little Reese's mouth:

Well look who got beaten with the ugly stick. Bob, is that you? My God, I can't believe such an itty bitty gun could make such a big mess out of someone! You are so ugly Bob! Oh and hey I heard you have one of those poop bags where the shit comes out the side, you're just a big old shitbag aren't you Bob! I hope you think of me every time you shit in that thing motherfucker


I already told you why I shot him you shit-skinned motherfucker.

and one more...

Fuck you, chipmunk face! And your fuckin' skipper wife!

When I return Ill be attending the Sufjan Stephens Concert and report back on the experience.

Until then, take this to think on:

Creating ads for yourself is not easy using the standard free space in which to do so. Next adventure is to seek out areas on the web for successful ad campaigns or a place that offers creative alternatives to getting the audience and attention you need. Up Up!

Project R is in development, guest artists on the show, and a whole new line up of material for Episode Six.

Waiting on you love.

Canned Culture Episode 4 - The Next Frontier


Do yourself a 2-minute favor and watch the trailer here

((Tarnation Trailer))

Trust me on this one folks. If your a fan of pushing the boundaries on film and interested to see something truly original this is for you.

My own personal comparison would put this film akin to the terrifying stark reality of Harmony Korine's Gummo with the erie edge of something David Lynch might dream up, but with a sincerity and sense of wonder almost comic in its insanity such as Todd Solondz's Palindromes.

Look for more info on Palidromes next show.

Current TV

I can do nothing more then direct you to their site with a link

Current TV

well maybe a bit more: About Current TV:

Current is a national cable and satellite channel dedicated to bringing your voice to television.

Current is about what's going on: stories from the real world, told by you.

We slice our schedule into short segments that we call "pods" -- each just a few minutes long. You'll see profiles of interesting people on the rise, intelligence on trends as they spring up around us, and international news from new perspectives.

And much of it comes straight from you.

We call it viewer-created content, or VC2. Right now, VC2 makes up about a third of our channel -- and that share is growing.

It works like this:

Anyone who wants to contribute can upload a video. Then, everyone in the Current online community votes for what should be on TV. You can join in at either stage -- watch & vote or make video. (We've also got online training to help you get the skills you need to make TV!)

This is definitely not a traditional TV network. Watching Current, you'll see more, on more topics, from more points of view.

But if we're going to succeed, we need you to do more than watch; we need you to jump in and participate.

Regina Spektor

Typically I might direct you to the artists official site, but to be honest her site is lacking the personal flavor that her (now dont roll your eyes) myspace does.

Plenty of great info can be found here

Regina Spektor on Myspace

Chew on that kiddies. By the way if you get enough of a taste that you cannot stop listening for several hours and you feel the day is not complete unless you've heard this miraculous voice here is what to do

Step 1: learn lyrics and sing to yourself
Step 2: learn lyrics and sing to others
Step 3: create music videos in your head
Step 4: buy a fricken ticket to her show at Park West on October 15th @ 7:30PM

What...thats not enough for you? Check back real soon for some highly useful need-to-know-net links. Promise to be up real soon.
