I've been spending an inordinate amount of energy on the Dallas Cinemania screenings lately. I'm very excited about it all and I hope that it goes over well. I think the one thing that's really going to separate us from the pack is the fact that we're going to have some really good prints and our films are going to be a diverse pack. I still haven't finalized the three movies for this fall but I have a good idea what they'll be. Lots more going on as well. Holly and I will be moving into a two-bedroom house in Little Forest Hills next month. On top of that, I'm attempting to book some shows for the Tomorrowpeople. We already have two lined up for Oct 17th and 18th at the Doublewide here in town and in Austin at the Creekside Lounge. Still haven't played Ft. Worth which irks me for some reason. I mean -- it's right there. There's no excuse except we haven't been able to get on any bills. We'll make it happen.

Greetings. It's been a while. So much to write about...so little energy. Where do I begin? Well, for starters, Holly and I traveled to Chicago -- our future home? -- in June. The photos have been posted on my Flickr account for some time (see sidebar). I underwent sinus surgery last month which put me out of work for two weeks. I'm starting a 35mm film society at the Angelika Film Center here in Dallas in October. We'll be screening the Lucio Fulci splatter classic, Zombie (1979) on October 30th. So come out for that if you're in town. Also, my band Tomorrowpeople played a show last week at Doublewide. Our entire catalog -- including "new" album, Bounced and Renounced -- has been released in the digital format. You should be able to download it off iTunes, eMusic, Napster, Amazon.com...pretty much anywhere really. We're proud that our stuff is available again for the first time in nearly a decade. We'll be playing Doublewide again on October 17th and we're coming to Austin on the 18th...although I forget the venue. Damn! Anyway, that should be interesting. I promise to post more often!
