  1. Hold on conspiracy buffs! I was the originator of that thread on Patricia-arquette.com, and I requested that the thread be killed. The administrator complied. The reason I asked for it to be killed is that it went into the weeds of conjecture. There villifying TJ, and as you may notice, here villifying Patricia, at least by implication. None of us, save Tim and maybe Jen, who are actual friends of Thomas and Patricia know what is going on, and it is in really horrendous behavior for us to publicly guess at what must be a terrible time for both of them. I posted the opptimistic note because it was good news in a time period when there isn't much of that to go around. Personally, I hope they pull it off and returned to married life. Hopefully they both return to married life smarter, more mature, more occimidating of each others needs and completely aware of how much better their lives are with each other as opposed to without. I found Thomas' work through being a fan of Patricia, so regardless of affiliation, I don't think that provides me a right to make public wild ass guess about where their marriage is at. When my thread turned into that, it went away. Best regards to all, JoeMess (Same name over there to.)

    I JUST...

    Finishing a third screwdriver made because the blender broke while my daughter tried to make a knock-off recipe of Orange Julius. Watching the beginning of what is supposed to be 9" of snow tonight in my new digs. Joe
  3. These kinds of auctions are great because they always break the trend line of donations being down while the economy is down. If any of the posters here work for a large company, you should check with your HR department to see if they also offer matching. You could easily get a 3 to 1 on a donation combined with the Kraft donation. When I worked at Microsoft the matching had an individual matching ceiling per charity. You could amass a group donation to push the ceiling quite high, and the company was highly supportive of collective donation efforts. It is worth looking into. Based upon family circumstances I have driven across this country four times in the last 7 months. The reality of the desparate state of our economy has been apparent in rural areas since March of this year. This Christmas is already going to be about food rather than presents for the needy. Joe
  4. I think Pippi Longstocking has taken a turn for the male demographic. Joe
  5. Not that I dislike Ozzy, but with the guitar players he has played with, it is the same as watching a porn flick. Do you have any idea what the guy in the last porn flick you saw looked like? Yah, me neither. Gilliam brought out a sincere heaviness in Sabbath. With Ozzy, it has always been more of a schtick. Joe
  6. Saw Sabbath with Gilliam on the Born Again tour. You might want to rethink the Sabbath statement. The fluffy clown shit that Ozzy does wasn't there, and I could finally take them seriously. They also played for close to 3 hours. Joe P.S. Ozzy was only good live with Jake E. Lee on guitar anyway. I don't know how Zakk Wylde stands it.
  7. Deep six this if you don't want to reply. You know you are the only one that can answer your question, right? You have got lead role acting, directing, screen writing, comic writing and innovative film production all under your belt. Which of these do you like the best? If one of them is the winner, and you can practically pull it off as a livelihood, why aren't you chasing it with 100% of your professional effort? You don't have the immediate name recognition of Harrison Ford, but you say Thomas Jane to most people, and they say Punisher and/or Mist. What's the goal here? You are ahead of 99.9% of actors that make a living acting. Your wife is super well known, and in interviews seems to regret the lack of privacy that fame has created. When you take your daughter out for icecream, do you want the same? Could a professional win for you instead be having a career like a Derek Jacobi, recognized for excellence in every role, but not an "in your face" celebrity? Maybe the esoteric flicks are what you are doing, because they are what you like to do. If you can determine what is successful for you, and it works for you and your family, fuck the noise of the rest of the industry, and do that. You are way more productive than most, and you turn out quality results. Don't beat yourself up over people too ignorant to recognize that. Joe
  8. How do you make it cool again like Steve McQueen in Le Mans instead of shit-kicker entertainment like Nascar that won't fill a theatre? Has the gaming industry already commanded the street racing revenue stream? I am sure the pockets behind Indy and F1 would pop backing for the right project that would bring licensing revenue back up. That could be a monster project. Imax release using the camera rigs you used for Dark Country. Nothing life asphalt an inch away going by at 200 mph. First person perspective on a high speed crash. Something more than Bud fueled Nascar fans or a chica on the hood of a souped-up Honda. What would make it step out of the pack? Joe
  9. TL, you have really missed out. Aside from his broad ranging knowledge base and overwhelming intelligence, Henry Rollins is possibly one of the funniest humans alive. He can take the most fucked up tragic things that have happened in his life, and have you still pissing your pants a week later. Do yourself a favor, and dig into his career. As far as Black Flag, you will either love it or hate it. That's on you. Joe

    There is another dynamic that doesn't get discussed in entertainment, attention span. A movie used to be more fulfilling because rather than 7 or 8 minutes of actual character development you get with a TV show, you can get 25-30 minutes of getting to know a character, develop empathy for them and ride the wave of whatever is the conflict of the film. As film has devolved into its current state of blood porn, character-less action and cheeseball schtick comedies that are like SNL sketches that have outlasted their welcome, going to the theatre is rarely satisfying. If we take a look at the current career status of Tom's wife Patricia, she is starring in a well loved TV series in which her character is complex, has real dimension, and real capability of surprises. Yet, the character is still the same character that viewers "know" through the past four seasons. The show and Patricia win awards and she has defeated the Hollywood stereotype that an actresses career ends in their thirties, unless you comeback to play old ladies. This show maybe Tom's vehicle to develop a character with staying power. (No pun intended!) Don't forget that Bruce Willis' dynasty as an action star was built on his success in moonlighting. I don't think anybody holds the monster comedy chops he showed in Moonlighting against him. Joe
  11. No shit, he's up here in my home turf doing the shoot? Joe
  12. Parker Posey has the strange thing that resonates with women to. My daughter was almost called Parker, at my wife's request. I dated a girl in college that was a dead ringer for Parker, but with a little more of those and that. Great times! Joe
  13. There you go! One of those women that own the room, but it doesn't come through on film. Joe
  14. Not alone dude. I wouldn't even pause at Cameron Diaz to wipe my feet on my way to Parker Posey, or Christina Applegate, or Selma Blair, or for that matter, most other women. Seems like a nice girl, but I don't get how she always gets played up as so hot. Maybe she is one of those women that are unbelievable in person, and it just isn't captured by the camera. Joe
  15. Yep, they are eating their own young. It is not like you ever really get the opportunity to re-release anything. How long did it take Spielberg to get the recut Close Encounters out? How long for the Directors Cut of Blade Runner? This isn't like having an instructor review your rough draft. The revenue potential for the UK is probably less than halved by this action and better special effects for the home/DVD/Blu-ray market makes almost no sense. Joe
