Update : the promised Facebook thingy.
In my alternate life as a very struggling filmmaker, I have spent some time these last months working with an extremely talented pair of Chicago-based actresses, Sarah Rose Graber and Casey Pilkenton, on a web series following them as they throw themselves bodily into exploring whatever interesting pop culture ephemera catches their eye at that moment (I’m behind the camera, and throw myself bodily into nothing). Our first, abortive experiment was on psychics, with Sarah Rose and Casey stopping people on the street to read their energies; we’ve re-grouped and re-started with… I shouldn’t like to spoil the surprise.
We call ourselves Pop Culture Shock: YouTube channel here (with a nice clutch of videos already), and blog here (and on the sidebar). God willing and the creek don’t rise, we’ll be posting new episodes every Tuesday; I hope you’ll all be kind enough to check them out and tell us how wonderful and lovable we are. You can also follow us on the Facebook thingy; sadly, having nuked my own FB account, I can’t share that info just now, but I’ll be providing a link as soon as one of my co-conspirators hooks me up.
