people who know anything about me know that i like "haunted shit." always have. always will. despite my dislike for anything even remotely associated with "fantasy," and complete disbelief in a higher power, ghost have always gotten me going.
in only slightly related news: i am currently in pre-production for a new music video for the band poison the well. i will be directing the video for their new song, exist underground a week from sunday. much more on this later.
now... this video will not be animated. nor will it have anything to do with skeletons, or mountains, or giant devils sitting upon mountains. so how this song/piece of film has anything to do with what i'm shooting next week is unknown to me. i just like it a lot. i have no recollection of any other part of fantasia, but this segment has gotten me excited to make shit since i was about 8 years old. seems to still be working.

william friedkin's horror masterpiece, the exorcist, is one of my favorite films of all time. i will spare you the boredom of my critique/observations/rumination on the film. just enjoy the insanity of this trailer. imagine sitting in a darken movie theatre in the fall of 1973, and this happens upon the screen. epileptics be warned.

the other day, as i was attempting to make a closet more usable i came across a box that i never lost, but had no knowledge of it's whereabouts. it this box was roughly 300 polaroids all of which where taken in a house above a subway sandwich shop in milwaukee wisconsin circa 02, and several vhs tapes. these vhs tapes contain just about everything my friends and i ever shot between the years of 1993 through 2002-ish. such hits contained within are: green piece, crossroads, the english project 1, english project 2, the spanish american war, d for dead, episodes 1-3 of the never aired penneyless productions television show, brian bell, trick or treat, and many more.
photos being scanned. tapes being digitized. to type more to come, would be a gross understatement.
