Have a great trip Patrick!

I and my family go to Cinevent every year. I haven't missed one since I started going back in 72. A great convention with tons of film, books, posters...you name it. Lots of fun and all day and most of the night screenings, too.

Pat, we'll see you there - Shorty - Bring 8mm

If you, in your four weeks, have a chance to swing around to Idaho, you are welcome to a night of films and great Omelettes, (you haven't lived until you've had an OSI Omelette!), and I'd love to screen some films for ya!
If your able to make it, you would need to fly into Boise Idaho, let me know when you'd arrive, and I'll drive over there and pick you up! Your welcome to stay the night at our house or a little bed and breakfast just two blocks from our house.
Invite is Genuine and I hope that you can make it!
OSI, Steph, Devin and little Heather Haily marie Osgood!

By the way folks I just finished listening to Patrick Walsh on L.A radio talk back tonight with presenter Jack Marino, runs for 50 minutes and its very good....well done Pat.
I cant link it to the forum but if someone can, that would be great I am sure you would find it of interest.

Patrick's May 17th interview can be heard on LA Talk Radio's website. I'm looking forward to meeting Pat in a few weeks!

Would love to but it will have to be next time im afraid.

So.....how is Pat getting on in the "big apple"? ....photo's please
Posted by Douglas Meltzer (Member # 28) on June 05, 2013, 03:16 AM:
Patrick came in for a visit on Saturday. To get a perspective on the scope of NYC we went to the Empire State Building.
It was quite a different experience for Pat since New York City alone has over twice the population of New Zealand!
We waited patiently but did not catch a glimpse of Q The Winged Serpent hanging out in the Chrysler Building.
After a few more sights I showed Patrick the famous local attraction known as "The Closet O' Film".
John Capazzo came up and the screening was underway!
Pat is holding Konga, currently the cutdown of choice for many Forum members.
It was terrific meeting Patrick. I hope to take him up on his invitation to visit his part of the globe.

An amazing city and I will be back sometime in the future!
Posted by Lee Bombard (Member # 3740) on June 05, 2013, 01:07 PM:
Okay...Where does one find one of those very cool "Blackhawk Films" shirts?
Posted by Roger Shunk (Member # 2836) on June 05, 2013, 01:52 PM:
Yeah I want one too!!
Posted by Joe Caruso (Member # 11) on June 06, 2013, 12:41 AM:
Can't have mine, Jay Schwartz has them
Posted by Douglas Meltzer (Member # 28) on June 06, 2013, 03:31 AM:
Lee and Roger,
As Shorty said, the Blackhawk shirts may be ordered from Jay Schwartz (jschwart at voicenet.com).
Posted by Lee Bombard (Member # 3740) on June 06, 2013, 05:55 AM:
Thanks Doug. I've sent an inquiry to Jay.
Posted by Graham Ritchie (Member # 559) on June 08, 2013, 12:01 AM:
The Empire State building might be something, but...."The Closet O' Film" is even more impressive.
Posted by Osi Osgood (Member # 424) on June 08, 2013, 12:27 PM:
Perhaps we'll catch you on your next trip to the US Patrick!
Posted by Patrick Walsh (Member # 637) on June 14, 2013, 07:18 PM:
Just arrived home after about 24 hours of being on planes!
Thanks Doug for my NYC tour and nice to meet John C also.
Nice to meet you as well Shorty at Cinevent.
