Arresting the Neighbor

Click here to view video. Or just click the picture.

This post was taped a week ago. I've been remiss on the vlog front. Here I'm monologing about the night about a dozen of San Antonio's finest men in blue dragged off my asshole neighbor, who still hasn't been evicted!

I would have taped the event, but my camera was out in the truck, and I was half-anticipating flying bullets.

Hot Wells

Above the banks of the San Antonio River, not far from the intersection of S. Presa and Southcross, you'll find the remains of the once famous Hot Wells Hotel, originally built in 1886. The buildings, which throughout their history have been plagued by periodic fires, have been used for different purpose over the decades. Hotel, bathhouse, movie studio, school, trailer park, restaurant, etc. The one constant is the hot sulphur springs that, to this day, still bubble up and run into the river.

Location Scouting

Carlos is directing a short film for the Short Ends Project based on my script. The title is El Pollo Fuerte, and it should be premiering December 17th at the Alamo Drafthouse Westlakes.

We need a good location for a sort of low-level crime lord. Some place roomy, yet seedy. I think we found the perfect location.

November is Remix Month.

This is a remix of some clips from Susan Kirkpatrick's video blog, Kitykity. She's from Plano, and one of the first vloggers I have ever met. She showed up for the Meet the Vloggers event at Node 101 here in San Antonio. I got to meet her, Michael Verdi, Juan Carlos Gonzalez, and some members of the press from The San Antonio Current.

Afterwards, me, Susan, and Juan Carlos went to dinner and drinks. Susan mentioned something about never having anyone remix her vlog entries.

Susan, here's a remix!

Dirt, Magical Dirt

Last night's long, rambling explication on how to banish unwanted neighbors with some imported dirt and a little bit of faith. It's a big, lengthy file. 14mb and about 7 minutes.

Seguin Film Fest

Click here to view movie. Or just click the picture.

This will direct you to a page where a short film of mine should start playing. It's titled The Price of Stamps, and stars Carlos Pina, Mark Daratt, Louisette Zurita, and Rosalinda Coto (who is getting married this month!). It played last month at the Seguin Film Festival, but sadly failed to win me the coveted Bronze Pecan Award. Maybe I needed more car chases and nudity. It was all shot here on San Antonio's southside, with the exception of one scene shot in the state park outside of Bandera.

A smaller turnout than last year, but still a good amount of trick-or-treaters.
