RIP Dennis Hopper

I'm going through some pretty heavy shit with my family right now. I'm actually holding up well, but I'm tired. And I've had my movie on my mind the whole time.

Since I cite Easy Rider as inspiration for my movie, I thought I'd post a clip. And while we're at it, RIP Dennis Hopper.

Playlist for "Among Thieves"

I'm just about 7 weeks out from beginning to film. I'm trying not to freak out and doing an okay job being cool so far. I'll learn some things this weekend about key people to be involved with the film and I'll know by then whether or not to freak out Haha

The big point is that all my time from hereon in will be dedicated to the film, so I won't be writing much here on the blog. That's a sad scenario for some, I assume, but a good one as I'll still be working creatively, just in other capacities.

So for today's post I thought I'd share with you the playlist of songs I've been listening to fairly consistently while developing the script and generally working on the film.

My film, "Among Thieves", is based heavily upon 1970s indie movies, like Trip with the Teacher; Dirty Mary, Crazy Larry; Easy Rider; and Pink Angels. It follows three men on a crime spree across Michigan.

Here's the playlist. Enjoy.

World Cup begins today. Here's the official theme for South Africa by K'Naan.

I'll be watching USA, of course (American Outlaws and Sam's Army, anyone?). But I'm also keeping an eye on Ivory Coast, New Zealand and Germany.

Michigan Dog Man

I damn near forgot to blog today. I've been taking an entrepreneurial class as of late and I've been spending most of my time split between that and the movie. As such, my time for writing here on the blog has been greatly lessened.

Here now is a video I came across whilst researching ideas for future movie projects.

Enjoy the legend of the Michigan Dog Man.
