THE VEIL

VEIL POSTERj

 

Here’s some posters Phil Joanou cooked up himself. Probably won’t see these everywhere.

 

Veil.HOUSE POSTER

 

Too bad. I think they’re pretty cool.

 

Veil.THREE FACES1

 

I ain’t gonna lie. I had a blast playing a batshit preacher/cult leader.

Veil2

 

I only wish Jessica joined our cult a little earlier.

 

 

Phil was great. you’ll never see a Blumhouse film look this good again.

don’t know how he did what he did on the budget we had. impressive.

Welcome to RawStudios v3

finally. we’ve got a website that i can stand to look at more than twice.

thank Andi ‘butwin’ Ewington for that, along with Johnny fuckin Walker.

not that JW, friend. the other JW – Andi’s friend. my friend JW took a walk years ago.

This is the site that Andi and Johnny built. they did a damn fine job of it.

two brits, whom i now owe two beers. two a piece. black & tans maybe. i look forward to the day we can sit in that great pub in london. the one with the bear head.

i like this site. we can add shit to it mobile-y. remotely. on the go. apparently – and i haven’t learnt how to do this yet, but supposedly, i can take a pic that amuses me – my breakfast. my cat. my cat’s breakfast – and i can share it on this damn thing in minutes. seconds, if i was smart. (i’m not.)

so minutes. but will i? we will see.

i say yes, for at least   a day.

i like pictures. not a word man. so the plan is to share some pictures that i like. on here.

why not snapcrack? instacrack? tweeter? no. too much going on over there. very busy that place. busy.

there is something going on out there, in the world – something is changing. some zeitgeist is moving in from over the hills, like weather. i don’t know what it means, or what it is – but i do know it is coming. the world is changing. the world is always changing, but the winds have been picking up, lately. have you felt it? the shit is blowing this way, so keep your hand on your hat and your hat on your head. we’ll talk about it. i come across some interesting stuff sometimes. i’ll share some of it here.

i were you i’d check in, maybe once a week. check this spot. my new years revolution is to throw down with some tid bit of gnat shit right here, once per.

when the site goes live i might even send out a twit, to let ya know. just one. we’ll be updating and refining the rest of the site, adding more pics as they come bubbling up from wherever the hell they come from, nestled down in those ones and zeros in the sky. the cloud.

the wind.

meanwhile, friend, it’s good to hear ya. it’s been a while. what news do you bring me from the wide, wide world? i like hearing about it, i just don’t much feel like i want to go there. not yet.

you go ahead. i’ll be right here.

oh, and stay off the facekook.

makes you loco.

 

Wrapped The Veil

Still looking for enough hay to make the horses run in magnificent death.

just wrapped The Veil with Phil Joanou – had a blast.

Alabama was fun, too – first with Mike Flanagan on his film and then with Bruce Willis on a little sci-fi pic that was a lot of fun. I got to play a pissed off cop in a dirty city.

decided to write a film about criminals. the western thing looks like it’s gonna take a while. I’ve had a couple offers but nothing that felt right. you need partners that get what you want to do.

I’m tired. wanted to check in after that long run of filmmaking. now, rest.

Jim Wilson | God’s Chorus of Crickets | crickets audio recording slowed way down by acornavi on SoundCloud – Hear the world’s sounds

Tom Waits (on Jim Wilson): “Wilson, he’s always playing with time. I heard a recording recently of crickets slowed way down. It sounds like a choir, it sounds like angel music. Something sparkling, celestial with full harmony and bass parts – you wouldn’t believe it. It’s like a sweeping chorus of heaven, and it’s just slowed down, they didn’t manipulate the tape at all. So I think when Wilson slows people down, it gives you a chance to watch them moving through space. And there’s something to be said for slowing down the world.”

Mr. ROBBIE ROBERTSON (Recording Artist): This was the way of it. It is a river. It is a chant. It is the medicine story. It is what happened long ago. It is a bead in a story belt. It is what has been forgotten. It is the smell of sweet grass and cedar and prayers sent to the sky, father. It is a way, a tradition, the way it was always done. It is a feeling of warmth, the sound of our voices. Listen, I am dancing beneath you.
