...Okay, so the 'Pork And Beans' video was shot from last Wednesday to Saturday, with director Matt Cullen and his amazing crew. Everybody involved did such a great job. Words are not really adequate to describe the things I saw those 4 fateful days. Suffice it to say that rules were broken and boundaries were pushed back! This video should be out sometime in the coming weeks. More details as they become available.
...Plug 1: I saw The new film "The Dhamma Brothers" the other day at its L.A. premiere screening. This is the film that Rivers helped out with, about Vipassana meditation in an Alabama prison. Its a really beautiful film, so if you see a screening coming near you, be sure to check it out. It will be in DVD at some point too.
...Plug 2: Super long time weezer fan Justin H. has been making cool music of his own for some years now, and his band Zomo is releasing not one but two new albums. If you are into weezer, you'll probably dig this stuff!
