Looking for something different to read?

I was recently contacted by my publisher that 'Strange Company' was selected for a limited printing in hardback.

For those friends who don't know of this work or has an interest in such a topic, 'Strange Company' is the first in-depth accounting of aerial phenomena primarily observed by the Allied Air Forces during WWII. With around 500 references, this work is primarily sourced by official documentation compiled by my four year research effort at the National Archives II, Modern Military Branch, in College Park, Maryland, and includes sighting accounts by veterans, most of which I personally interviewed.

FYI: It is important to remember that the terms UFO or flying saucer were not used until a couple years post war. Also, it should be noted that the now famous term 'foo fighter' was coined by one American night fighter outfit in late 1944, long after the sightings began.

Have a great summer. Cheers!

My Friend Hugo

Hello. It's been many a moon since I last posted about my short film, My Friend Hugo, being accepted for screening at last summer's Frederick Film Festival.in Frederick, Maryland. It was fun. I certainly enjoyed the festival and experience.

Anyway, I haven't shown My Friend Hugo to anyone since the festival and since so few have seen, I thought maybe a few of you might be curious and would like to check it out. If so, sit back, get comfortable, grab a cool one, and spend 17 minutes taking a peek.

Hope you like. Happy Days to you all.

"My Friend Hugo" Screens At F3, The Frederick Film Festival

I'd like to announce that my new short film, My Friend Hugo, has been selected for screening at the 6th annual  F3, The Frederick Film Festival . Many thanks go out to Walter Chalkley and all the festival staff involved. Getting selected is simply... groovy. Given there were 900 submissions this year from around the world, and under 60 will be shown, I'm more than overjoyed by the news.

The festival will take place over three days, June 27 through June 29, at two venues, the Weinberg Center and the Delaplaine Visual Arts Education Center . My Friend Hugo has been placed in the "experimental" category and will be shown among a group of similar genre films. Showtime is 12:00 P.M. on Saturday at the Delaplaine.

My Friend Hugo is a tale about Tinta and her fond memories of a great friend.  

So, if you are into film and looking for something fun to do, come on out and have good time absorbing an array of eye and ear candy.

Snowed In With The Flow

I'm sitting here drinking a new batch of black gold. It's snowing. While looking out the window, a fond memory flashed in on me and said hello. That memory has made me smile and laugh many times.

It all began during the fall/winter of 2010. I had been meeting weekly with Frederick, Maryland artist, Charles Forsythe, to make a film about him and his art. Months later, I premiered it in Frederick. You can read more about that time in my past posts, but for now, I'd like to share the film with everyone who didn't have a chance to see.

So, grab your favorite snacks and beverages, get all cozy, and tune in to the "Flow":

A New 5-Pounder Brew Arrives!

Back in August  I posted about my purchase of a David Lynch 5-pounder bag of brew. That's been long gone. This morning I received a new batch that was roasted on November 8. There's a pot brewing now. I'm sure a second one will be in the works. The day will be fine and that's such a beautiful thing.
