FILMS 08162010

here are some films that i’m currently interested in seeing.

this one is called MONSTERS which for me conjures not only MONSTERS (like in cloverfield, godzilla, and monsters inc, naturally, HA) but also MONSTER (as in CHARLIZE THERON, but not like this, more like this). cool!

the story follows a journalist who is sent to retrieve his boss’s daughter (BUMMER) after a NASA PROBE crashes in mexico with some sort of foreign life attached to it.  i’ve posted the trailer below.

wait, a NASA PROBE????????? cool! i don’t think the trailer looks that good, but the following clip, as well as the knowledge that it was filmed with only 5 crew members on a very small budget makes me very interested in seeing the film.

the second film i’m reasonably interested in seeing is called CATFISH, and it sounds absolutely banal, except it was a darling at sundance (you can read this rave review). i mean, how many movies get a grade of A+?? only babe, pig in the city, according to roger ebert (review here). anyway, catfish is about FACEBOOK but it’s not the facebook movie (sigh), wait HA. guys who am i kidding, what’s the deal with this facebook movie anyway? what a gem of an idea!

here’s the CATFISH trailer.

i have to say, i am definitely INTRIGUED.


I’m The Des Moines Graphic Novel Examiner

Hey dudes. I’ve started a new writing venture at a website some of you may or may not have heard of called examiner.com. I have been selected as Des Moines’ “Graphic Novel” Examiner, which means I’m supposed to write about the comic books. I posted my first entry tonight,  a modest look at some of this week’s comic releases, but more articles will come, so please bookmark my page over there and check back regularly! Here’s my first post:


Sorry the formatting’s a bit rough, still getting used to it. And yes, that picture is my Myspace/Facebook picture that is years old, because I was too lazy to make a new one. Maybe someday! Thanks for the support!

New Beati Paoli Songs: rabble rouse AND vulgarity drifting diary


i just uploaded two more songs from the upcoming BEATI PAOLI album, “A SENSE OF URGENCY”.

(cd release show is september 5th!).

“RABBLE ROUSE” – first track off the album. joe’s favorite. dance to it.

“VULGARITY DRIFTING DIARY” – track 5. probably the best song to trip balls to.

you can also buy these songs from the beati paoli myspace or the noising machine myspace or the “catalog” section of the noising machine website.


in other news….

both The Noising Machine AND Beati Paoli now have FACEBOOK PAGES.
