  1. I think the movie looks amusing, even though to me the pairing of Tom w/ John Cusack seems a bit odd upfront, but maybe it'll work. Tom plays it fast 'n' loose 'n' funny based on this preview of Drive Hard. I'm definitely looking foward to his performance at least!

  2. I wonder what "type" of character Tom will play in Vice? You can't tell from the movie's description and info given, but maybe Tom only has a small part in this film, which would allow him to move on to AMDFASH in timely fashion...? I guess we'll have to wait and see!

  3. Super-heavy sludge/metal/noise duo Jucifer (Amber Valentine and Ed Livengood) has a new album out with a Russian title that's translated as There Is No Land Beyond The Volga. The most, uhhhh, 'accessible' song may be "Fight Hard Live Free" - Here's the link to audio:

    and here's a link to my review of the album:

     

    "Bad-ass duo Amber and Ed release a super-heavy beast of an album."

  4. So says Variety! And the storyline sounds really cool. I wonder what part Tom will play in this...

     

    "...futuristic action sci-fi pic “VICE,” starring Bruce Willis... Pic also toplines Ambyr Childers (“The Master,” Showtime’s “Ray Donovan”), and Thomas Jane (“The Mist,” HBO’s “Hung”). It is set to be directed by Brian A. Miller (“The Prince,” “House of the Rising Sun”)... It begins shooting in Alabama in March.

     

     

    Read more about the plot here:

  5. That's awesome news and that you're a part of it, but I don't get pivot!! :( At least this 1st episode is online, but I'm wondering if they all will be? I haven't had the time to look into this, although I've read about HitRECord - and didn't understand how to access the content. Most articles don't easily go into "how" or "where" a viewer is supposed to see the content...

  6. White Bird in a Blizzard hit Sundance and its, and Tom's, impact is being felt in the reviews coming out now. When Tom is mentioned in reviews, the critics have been very positive about him and his character. I won't put any quotes here because I don't want to spoil any plot or character points, so I'll just add the links of reviews that I've come across. Let's just say I really, really want to see this film... ;)

    Q&A with actress Shailene Woodley where some Tom-related character/plot is divulged:

  7. Hmmm, I don't know... I had read that Katee is in this director's film Oculus coming out in April, and that she was going to be in his next film, i.e., Somnia. But the film news is always in flux, so maybe that's not true anymore.

     

    Anyway, can't wait to see Tom in this one!

  8. Just started a regular column where I round up all the big trailers of the week and add witty* commentary about them. This week it's Expendables 3, 22 Jump St, Interstellar and more: http://www.krank.ie/category/entertainment/trailer-roundup-22-jump-st-interstellar-expendables-3/

     

    *not a promise

    Nice! Thanks for posting your reviews here! It's good to know more about the 2nd Jump Street movie. I hadn't looked into it before now. Funny commentary about that Planet of the Apes movie and James Franco!

  9. If fast 'n' furiously fun, wild tunes that sound cartoon-like (as in Road Runner colliding with a speed metal guitarist who collides with a cheerfully demented Japanese female shouter), look no further than the long-running, much-lauded (now a duo) Melt-Banana:

  10. If you need an Interpol fix, try out this NJ band who sound very much like Interpol, in the best ways:

     

    "Are We the Dining Dead?" is faster and "Sail Away" is slower and dreamier, especially at its end:

    Friend the guys at

  11. Really sad, sudden, and horribly shocking news about Paul Walker's passing. It still hasn't sunk in with me either... I just watched his parts in Pawn Shop Chronicles and can't believe he's gone. My deepest condolences go out to his daughter and other family and his dear friends.

  12. Thanks so much, everyone!! And sorry I've been MIA for a while. I've posted to my Thomas Jane 2 Yahoo Group, what news I can find on Tom, but then I don't have the time to come here too usually and post the news here too... It's great to see Tom's section rolling with all the info, even if I haven't been adding to it for a while...

     

    Birthday was great! Cake was involved... and lots of it, instead of candles. ;)
