Well What's All This Then?

Well it's been a little while since we've had some updates here, which is fair, because I've been taking a bit of a break from thinking about the film for a wee bit. I'm back-ish now though, at least with some updates.

No new video for awhile, because I had to leave all my tapes in Denver after the tour with John. I was flying to DC, then back to Chicago, had limited space, and more importantly, didn't want to absent mindedly set the bag of tapes down somewhere and lose them all. But, with them in Denver, it's been impossible to put up new stuff.

That being said, I'm going out tomorrow and doing an interview with Donal (early friend of John P & member of many bands together), then roaming around Chicago to shoot what could be called 'b-roll' or 'second unit' stuff. Basically shots of Chicago and whatnot. I'm going to put on my headphones, listen to some loud music and cart the camera all over the city. Am legitimately looking forward to it!

For you Chicagophiles out there, I'm going to get some of the classic stuff, but there will be some weird stuff too -- Capone's house, the Biograph theater, some of the weirder/darker historical stuff.

In the meantime, if you need to SEE some stuff, I took hundreds of pictures of the tour and they can be found over at Facebook, and John's been posting some sweet little videos and such too.

To sate the masses, I WILL post a few little iPhone clips I took on tour every couple of days till we're back in Denver, which is this weekend.

This clip is John in the room Elvis was born in, explaining to Bobbie -- the 80+ year old guide -- just what he does for a living. Cheers.
