A friend and neighbor of mine, Peter Conheim, has a 35mm film setup in his basement for 17 people here on the West Coast and got written up on PBS with the title-The Projectionist.


Peter is a knowledgable guy so I recommend for the content about projecting but also the discussion about digital vs film presentation with some interesting views. The article said a lot in short time I thought.

Recently he showed a beautiful technicolor print of War of the Worlds


and started three weeks ago a film series he calls-"The Inexplicables". In 35mm (the one I was lucky(?) enough to go to) was the weirder than weird Norman Mailers-Tough Guys Don't Dance with Ryan O'Neill. I enjoyed it. Two weeks ago it was Joseph Losey's The Secret Ceremony. This week he's showing a film based on Norman Mailers, An American Dream-"See You In Hell, Darling" On the invite for this film series he says, "Check your good taste meters at the door."

An interesting read.

The last couple of paragraphs bring to mind the supermarket way of selling.

Take apples, they must look good, be free of blemishes, a uniform colour and more or less the same size.

The big problem no taste.

The ugly ones, different sizes, but lots more taste.

I love the smell of film in the morning.
