Hey Boy Hey Boy scene. This was certainly funny and within the first several minutes. The writer, director, main actor also wrote and performed the music... this was fun! The movie was very slow and had all nine of us going, "WTFunk is happening?". The lo-fi effects were certainly amusing. Check the link to see the Hey Boy Hey Boy scene and perhaps just youtube other musical bits.
If you will be in Hollywood this summer.... be on the look out for a recurring movie night outdoors that Pembrooke Andrews and I plan to hold for everyone :)

Grease star Jeff Conaway's family 'decide to turn off life support machine'
Grease star Jeff Conaway's family have decided to turn off his life support machine, according to reports.
The 60-year-old actor, who famously played Kenickie in the hit 1978 film, has been in a deep coma after taking an overdose of painkillers.
'Doctors advised the family that Jeff has had no brain function since he
was brought into the hospital,' a source close to the situation told the website.
'The feeding tube has already been removed. The ventilator which is
breathing for Jeff, will be removed sometime this afternoon.'
The actor has been in a coma since he was found unconscious on the floor of his Encino home on May 11, for what was thought to be a prescription drug overdose.
He is not thought to be in any pain.
The 60-year-old actor has been battling a long-time addiction to booze and drugs, with his battles with substance abuse said to date back to the 1980s.
His manager Kathryn Boole told MailOnline last week: 'The doctors are not optimistic and he is fighting for life right now.
Conaway is also known for his part in the US comedy series Taxi, in which he
starred as out-of-work actor Bobby Wheeler from 1978 to 1981.
In 1980, he married Olivia Newton-John's sister Rona, but the couple, who have a son called Emerson, divorced five years later.
During that decade, Conaway was treated for a substance abuse problem which again became a problem in the mid-2000s.
In 2008 he signed up for Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew and spoke
candidly about his addictions to cocaine, alcohol, and painkillers.

also took courses from the Church of Scientology to cope with his
problems after Travolta came to his aid, but is believed to have
struggled recently with his addictions.

autoKratz:: shortly. Nick Launay brought over the Nick Cave - Grinderman hard drive with the files for the remixes too. Photo coming as well. Have a great evening!
I just got in from spending a lil more than an hour at the FREE screening at the LACMA... I was NOT planning on going out at all... it was decided late night when Jason Savvy mentioned it. So I contacted Gary... we drove there and as "timing would have it", as we were walking up to the Bing Theatre at the Museum, I hear my name called... it was by FatFish Sushi cohort, Robert Vogel!!! How fortuitous?!?!? I love FREE everything that seems to happen all over in LA!!! Going to sleep soon. Have a lovely Tuesday!
Christian Marclay's 'The Clock' starts ticking at LACMA today
Read more at latimesblogs.latimes.com
The 24-hour screening of Christian Marclay’s "The Clock" (2010), a sampler's paradise of thousands of movie and television clips depicting time's passage over the course of a full day, is underway at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
Shown in the Bing Theater, which seats 600, the free program began at 11 a.m. and concludes at the same time Tuesday morning. The Bing will remain open all night. LACMA's Plaza Café will do movie house concession duty, remaining open continuously through the screening, while Ray’s restaurant and the Stark Bar will remain open until 2 a.m.
No word yet about whether or not Flavor Flav, America's greatest clock-watcher (or at least wearer), will pop in for a look. But the program will be a rare opportunity for museum-goers to experience more than half of Marclay's video piece, acquired by LACMA last month after a wave of publicity over its showing at London and New York galleries.
One difficulty of its public presentation is that "The Clock," in addition to being a representation of clocks ticking away in movies and TV shows, actually is one: By synchronizing its thousands of images with real time, so that 8:17 or 2:42 shown on-screen accord with 8:17 or 2:42 on your watch, the artist lets you simultaneously know what time it is in the program's fictive narrative as well as outside the dream world of a darkened theater.
Since a stopped clock tells the correct time twice a day, does that mean Marclay used the same image for 8:17 a.m. as he did for 8:17 p.m., the same picture for 2:42 a.m. that represents 2:42 p.m.? I can't say. Time, uh, will tell -- presuming one dips in and out of the screening day and night.
The clips last anywhere from a few seconds to several minutes, so don't expect stopwatch precision. But after the 24-hour marathon, "The Clock" won't be available for full presentation any time soon. Beginning Friday and continuing through July 31 it will be shown only during regular museum hours in LACMA's Art of the Americas Building.
So the 14 hours of "The Clock" that record time between 9 p.m. and 11 a.m., when LACMA is always closed, won't be shown. For the foreseeable future, your only chance to have a look is tonight, the wee hours and tomorrow morning.

Times... they's a changin'...
End of an era as Vegas casino closes
LAS VEGAS, Nevada (AFP) – Las Vegas marks the end of an era this week as one of the US gambling mecca's last original "Rat Pack" casino-hotels, the Sahara, finally closes its doors.
Opened in 1952, the Sahara hosted everyone from Elvis Presley and Jerry Lewis to Frank Sinatra and the Beatles in the 1950s and 60s, and their photos still decorate the walls above the reception.
But in recent decades Vegas saw an explosion of mega-sized casino resorts which left the "small" Sahara struggling to fill its 1,700 rooms at the end of the famous Strip.

The death knell was sounded in March, when its owners since 2007, SBE Entertainment, announced that the casino-hotel complex with its more than 1,050 staff was no longer a viable business.

It was over a year and a half and my Motorola Droid needed to rest in peace... It let me know this late last night, so I was prompted to get a new phone today, the HTC Droid Incredible 2. While I have had my eyes on the forthcoming Motorola Bionic, this phone will work well. While it does NOT have 4G, that is fine.... it DOES have full on internet hotspot action. I can now connect all your laptops to the matrix!

Missy Elliot or rather Thieving Timbaland "borrowed" a section of this song for her tune, "I'm Really Hot" years later. :: View here ::
Solo begins @ 3:30. Prince had performed this on his own before. It is obvious, the rest of the band had no clue what he was about to do here. The version on The Beatles' White Album, has Eric Clapton on lead guitar.
