Yet another piece of art coming from Baltimore that makes me want to lose my shizzle. Watch Future Islands perform on David Letterman right this minute.
Warning ladies, his performance is a panties thrower.
I started a new Tiny Tales Classes session on Saturday with a group of 3-5 year olds. The project that we’re creating is a silent film, and I have been highly anticipating starting this session, not only because of my love for silent film, but because I was really excited to share film history with these little ones. I chose THE RINK by Charlie Chaplin as the first film to show them. Time was constrained, so I only showed the portions where they’re actually in the rink. The kids were riveted. They were laughing hysterically, calling out at the bad guy, and telling the story as it unfolded in front of them. When it was over they began to impersonate Charlie, mime skating, greeted each other without uttering a word, and did a couple of quite good pratfalls. Needless to say, the class was a success and I hope that we have eight new teeny tiny silent movie fans in our midst.
I was really taken away with Jesse David Fox’s discovery and inadvertent elegy of Christopher Evan Welch and his remarkable body of work. His Vulture article hit me on many levels as I was inspired by the details and incredible truths in Christopher Evan Welch’s work, his life as a character actor, and how heartbreaking life’s end will always be.
The stage is set. We’re ready to eat some s’mores and drink some whiskey. Come join us. www.facebook.com/smorestoriesplease
I had such a great time shooting this a few weekends ago. And I’m so happy with how it turned out. And I’m so grateful to finally be able to tweet from the break room.
The State Farm commercial I shot a year and a half ago has made it to the TV and internet. I’m the one with the bangs, the oversized diaper box, and the look of bewilderment.
