What Made 2017 So Great…

At this time, I like to pause and focus on what IS going right.  It is so easy to get bogged down. Thank you for sharing in the joys of my year.  It is at this time I am truly thankful for all who have touched my life in ways large and small.

Check out my Storify recap of this year!

David Lynch, The Cinematic Shaman

Very little causes my jaw to drop, but tonight, David Lynch, you have done it.  Everyone was oohing and aahing over last week’s episode of Twin Peaks, a chorus of WTF-s over the nebulous and at times, horrific images.  I expect that from Lynch.  What I didn’t expect was he to channel me or me, him.

Harry Dean Stanton understated-ly sang “Red River Valley”, a decades-old folk ballad of love and loss.  You would almost miss it if you weren’t listening carefully.   My jaw dropped.  That was the theme song of “Seeking Valentina” an award-winning, Lynchian-esque short film directed by Armin Nasseri, which I starred in and helped him produce.  It was so odd, because it seemed like Harry Dean Stanton continued right where our theme song left off. It was beyond weird–like David Lynch.

Here’s my version of the song, which played over the end credits of “Seeking Valentina”.  Check out the trailer of the film.  It will be playing at the Hollywood Dreams Film Festival in late August.  Curious?  Read Char Hardin’s review of Seeking Valentina, comparing my character to Laura Palmer.

David Lynch, you have blown my mind.  If you channeled us, we are honored.  If we channeled you, we hope to do it again.  We love you David, and the amazing journeys you take us on, always a little cuckoo and a little dangerous, just like you.

 

Moviemaking is a Messy Business

If you’ve been watching my Instagram lately, you will have noticed someone has a gripe against a guy named Vinnie.  😉

I was back on the set of James Balsalmo’s The Litch this week and I was again impressed by James’s wizardry, this time with masks, snot fabricated from cottage cheese and blood from chocolate syrup and food coloring. It was a messy, fun, albeit, occasionally odorous time. It’s amazing what creativity we have when we use it and James is a truly creative fellow.
