In a shocking turn of events I’ve decided to lift the veil of secrecy which has, until now, shrouded my post purple SKY extra curricular activities. Mostly because I’m so far along on them that it is almost a guarantee that they will be materializing soon.
I am working on a show for the internet called F is for Film. While it’s still too early to discuss the finer details, I can tell you that I’ve been developing this idea since last June with my writing partner and co-star Zack and that people who have heard the pitch and seen the footage from the first early episodes say it is very very me. Which means it is surreal, weird, and quasi-funny.
To get an idea of what it’s about imagine Siskel & Ebert: At The Movies but with a technogeek mythology and the mysteries at the spiritual “end of the internet.”
Confused? We all are. But we’re hoping it all makes sense come early ’09 when, if all goes according to plan, we’ll be launching the first set of online videos en masse. I’ll be updating The Inu with production updates over the next few months.
Aside from this, I’m also writing a serial novel that I’ll be publishing right here at The Inu (just for kicks). I just finished the prologue which may be the best, and strangest, thing I’ve written since I was in college. The story is entitled I Y ZOMBIES (the heart is pronounced “love.”) Be forewarned the title refers to something very specific in the story and in no way guarantees the arrival of the living dead.
Tis the age old story of a zombie movie obsessed girl who has a prophetic dream that the world will end on her seventeenth birthday, and forms an afterschool club at her high school to stop it. The first volume “Sick, Sweet, Sixteen” will hopefully be starting up in December, the good lord willing the cricks don’t rise…
In addition to all of that, I’m also looking for members for Yochien Ronin who live in the NJ/Metro area (or who could otherwise commute to our studio in Caldwell. I’ll be posting an ad shortly on the Myspace Page. Basically we want to find a drummer and a bassist who enjoy rockin out, and are at least sympathetic to jrock. We just want people who love to jam, and write and bounce ideas around. Yochien Ronin is a very flexible unit and we love to try new things. We’re not looking to just plug someone into our mold, we’re looking to grow into a real band.
Lots to do. So little of it paying me money.
Sigh. Art vs. Life: Round II.
