Things To Watch, Advertisers To Thank

  • Advertisers first: See See Arnold Run the triumphant story of an Austrian bodybuilder who overcomes his past Nazi ties, hedonistic Hollywood antics, and widely known and repeated sexual harassment allegations to become a big-time star--of the Republican party. From the director of American Pie 2 and the writer of The Unauthorized Story of 'Charlie's Angels', Inside the Osmonds, and Growing Up Brady (so you know the sex and period details'll be spot on). On A&E Sunday Jan. 30 at 8PM EST. Reportedly based on a true story.
  • Second--although it takes like five minutes, so you could still see it before Arnold--Mark Romanek's incredibly moving video of Johnny Cash's rendition of Hurt, which sensibly beat out Thriller in a music industry poll of the best music videos ever. Finally. Stairway to Heaven, we're comin' for you.
  • [via fimoculous] Jared Hess, the director of Napoleon Dynamite, made a video for The Postal Service's song, We Will Become Silhouettes.

  • Since 2001 here at, I've been blogging about the creative process—my own and those of people who interest me. That mostly involves filmmaking, art, writing, research, and the making thereof.

    Many thanks to the Creative Capital | Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Program for supporting that time.
