Is This White Boy Day?

Monday, August 20th, 2012

You’ve probably heard by now that director Tony Scott committed suicide this weekend. I’m not saddened by Tony’s choice, but I am saddened that we have lost a reliable filmmaker.  Those are on far too short a supply.  I thought his work was always solid; he made a few really great films (True Romance), several […]

Mr. G’s Favorites Day 5

Friday, August 10th, 2012

I’m going to wrap this up by saving the best for last.  If anyone has sat through all of these posts, thank you.  And thanks to everyone for the kind outpouring of support you’ve shown. Gandalf didn’t make films, but if he did, they’d have a Samurai.  I like to think that he followed the […]

A Far Green Country

Saturday, August 4th, 2012

  GANDALF: End? No, the journey doesn’t end here. Death is just another path, one that we all must take. The grey rain-curtain of this world rolls back, and all turns to silver glass, and then you see it. PIPPIN: What? Gandalf? See what? GANDALF: White shores, and beyond, a far green country under a […]

Gandalf

Wednesday, August 1st, 2012

Wanted to let everyone know that we have made the difficult decision to allow our beloved Gandalf to “pass into the West”, as it were, on this Friday morning. There is no one particular issue I can point to, rather there has been a systematic decline that has picked up momentum in the past few […]
