I scored my first feature film last year. It’s called /*Future
Weather*/ and the film had its premier at the Tribeca Film Festival
just recently. Good things are happening for the film which stars Amy
Madigan, Lili Taylor, William Sadler, Marin Ireland and features
newcomer Perla Haney-Jardine (“pure grace..” - Variety
But in order to get more good things going this Indie film needs help.
So, I’m asking you to stop by the Future Weather Kickstarter
site and check out the info. If you like what you see, donate.
Kickstarter campaigns offer a variety of enticements including DVDs,
posters, and a soundtrack recording (!). Here’s a gift just for
reading this far: check out this extended version from the Future
Weather soundtrack. In this scene Amy Madigan’s character Greta storms
out of the house after some whithering teen behavior from her grand
daughter. The track features Doug Wamble, guitar; Michael Sarin, drums
and Shanir Blumenkrantz, bass.

On this the 6-month anniversary of Occupy Wall Street, it’s a good time to check out Michael Greenberg’s 4 articles in The New York Review of Books. I was too occupied myself with my wife’s illness when it was all going on. As close as I am, living downtown as we do, it still felt like a distant background noise. Reading these thoughtful reports brings it to life again for me. Try them: Immerse yourself!
” The Occupy Wall Street movement that began in Zuccotti Park in New York’s financial district on September 17 has grown to a degree that seems to have stunned even its organizers and most ardent supporters. From the first days, most news outlets, if they deigned to cover the movement at all, ridiculed the protesters for lacking a specific political agenda or concrete demands. They were “leaderless,” “directionless.” But less in this case has proven to be more: Occupy Wall Street’s vague, open-ended character has been crucial to its success. The catchphrase “We are the 99 percent” has a galvanizing succinctness, speaking directly to a wealth gap that has widened over the past decade to a point not seen since the Great Depression.”
