Hi There, Does anyone have a venue suggestion for a DVD signing? A very low-budget film I directed was just released and I would like to coordinate a signing in Palm Springs as some of the actors live in that area. Not being familiar with Palm Springs, can anyone offer a suggestion of a suitable DVD...

It was usually held at, I think, a Veteran's or other city venue with uncomfortable folding chairs. It would be a ni...

Devo was way ahead of their time and never got the recognition they deserved for being the great musicians, performers and video pioneers they are. The first time I saw them was around 1977 or '78 at the Starwood in Hollywood. I'm sure some of you remember Starwood. I probably saw Devo there, I don'...

I have fond memories of Zucky's.
When I first met Gerry of the band, Devo, we ate there late at night.
I used to go there regularly from about 1977 -- 1979. The potato knish was good.

Anyway, glad to see the sign restored.[/i]

The movie was OK. I usually don't like Ben Affleck, but I thought he did a pretty good job. The story centered too much on the detective who wasn't a very sympathetic character. A better film overall though than the incomprehensible "Black Dahlia." Now, that's a STINKER. "Dahlia"...
