Video description: After making it big an actor tries to cut his agent loose, but the agent has other plans. Starring Keith Coogan & Skyler Marshall.

Sean Young, we love you!

Gorgeous and talented starlet Sean Young has my total support. Let me think, an older (not 14) woman, talented yet fiercely individual professional, after getting pushed aside and marginalized by major studios for years, has an incident at the DGA awards which serves as a catalyst for seeking help with substance or alcohol abuse.

Um.... I think that's great! I just have to say, I know and love Sean, I always felt she got a bad rap from men in the business that are afraid of powerful women. She always managed to roll with the punches, and take advantage and play on her reputation. She always had a great humor about the business, and a drive and ambition to match no other. My comment to an actor that DOESN'T dress up in a catsuit and stalk the director is, "Well you obviously didn't want the part!"

So Sean, I love you and am sending good mojo your way. Get well, and we'll see you when you get healthy. And for all others, please rent the movies that we worked on together, "Cousins" and "Forever: A Ghost of a Love Story", so that we can get some of that big residual money!

Rogue squirrel forces down plane

The squirrels menace has returned, as a squirrel on the loose forces an American plane into an emergency landing. And they thought a no-fly list would help stop terrorism.

Thousands of squirrels "culled" in pre-emptive strike

The British are obviously well aware of the potential dangers of a squirrel rebellion. They have taken extreme but necessary steps to ensure their safety and tranquility. Now, if we could only get the United States Government to understand the dangers lurking in every backyard. The squirrels are coming, they are getting organized, and some folks are already doing something about it!

Finally! Scientific Proof that Squirrels are Sneaky.

You’re probably aware that squirrels hoard their food. What you might not have known is that squirrels don’t keep all their nuts in one place, but make various holes and hiding places for their food stash. Apparently, they’re also paranoid.

David Lynch on iPhone

David Lynch breaks it down. I agree that no one can "fully" enjoy a film while watching one on an iPhone. I also think that being able to bring up "Office Space" so that you can have a quick laugh and not strangle the person in front of you has its own merits. Trust me, nothing is cooler than waiting in a parked car while watching "Transformers" on your iPhone just lying there on the dashboard. Oh yeah, with the sound blarring through your car stereo. It is pretty awesome. I will have to load Mulholland Drive onto my iPhone tonight, and see just how much I "miss" while watching on my iPhone. Now, with video out, I can take a copy of one of my short films or features with me anywhere I go and plug it into almost any television set and I'm able to show it. I could show my portfolio, or reel, or music video, or whatever. I agree with David Lynch that there is no way to take it all in on such a small device, especially when artists like David (and myself) create entertainment and art with the hopes that it is viewed/enjoyed/consumed within certain constraints, or rather suggested canvases. I myself also like to "leave a little headroom" and I like the volume cranked, but I have to say, the following movies sure do look pretty damn good on my iPhone:

Casino Royale
Blood Diamond
Grindhouse (Planet Terror is the best movie ever)
King Kong
Live Free or Die Hard (freakin' awesome)
Batman Begins
Superman Returns
V for Vendetta
and of course...Office Space

All legal copies by the way, I simply have a portable DVD player called an iPhone and of course I bought every single DVD in meat space, for full price, from either Target or Satan (Best Buy)*
