i've been looking forward to the soderbergh/del toro film for damn near 10 years now and seeing the trailer has me amped as hell. and the fact that its over 4 hours long and has been split into 2 films is even more exciting. AND benicio won best actor at cannes for che. so um yeah .. i'm ready for this damn movie.
i'm gonna have to dust off john lee anderson's biography again .. can't remember the last time i read it.
i was also a bit juiced about javier bardem (as pablo escobar) and christian bale (as major steve jacoby) starring in killing pablo but now i'm reading that bardem is denying those rumors and that edgar ramirez is going to play escobar. personally i've always thought that alfred molina could be a dope escobar.
i just hope it doesn't take nearly a decade to get killing pablo done .. AND i definitely hope its not some corny nod to scarface cause the story is way too good to fuck up.
between last weekend's baby shower and spending this week sick like a dog, i haven't had much time to edit the last shoot we did (i'll have those to you soon nicky!). but i'm feeling damn near 100% now and we decided to get together for a bit of shooting. lots of editing to get done but i'm excited about the final look. so far the project's going pretty good.

the music industry can be an ugly beast and right now its really putting my close friend and brother from another mother, che grand, through it.
i've had the pleasure of hearing a good amount of tracks from che's everything's good ugly and the album is impressive. it's a damn shame that this album hasn't hit stores yet but we can make a difference. thanks to rock the dub, and with the support of von pea & 2 dope boyz, a petition has been started to help get this album out to the masses.
sign it and lets work on getting this album the exposure it deserves cause trust me, y'all wanna here this.
and che, hold your head ..
we love you man.
