Also Uncle Bill's Pancakes; a great breakfast restaurant on Pacific Avenue . I always get the cream chipped beef. We don't have that in the South.

"Uncle Bill" reminds me an American tv show from the 60's "Family Affair" that was translated in French by "Cher oncle Bill" (Dear Uncle Bill) :-)

That's interesting, Graham!

It looks like the raw footage that went into Claus Harding's CineSea promotional video:

Cinesea Spring 2012

It is either the Spring or Fall CineSea of 2010 (#2 or #3): either the first one at the Ocean Holiday or John Black's last before he passed away.

Some notable cast members:

Tom Stathes (pac-man shirt)
Doug Meltzer (tan shirt)
Lou Franchetti (orange shirt)
John Black (light blue shirt)
Shorty Caruso (dark blue shirt)

This is either of two early ones I missed, so I have no idea at all what shirt I had on that day!

It's interesting how things have changed: this is a definitely smaller/quieter CineSea than we have now. It is a lot more active room these days.

It was also atypically warm then: we are more often in sweatshirts and I've seen it go as far as gloves and wool hats!

If it is #3, it came very close to being "CineSea Last", but people appreciated what John and Shorty were trying to do and took up their mission. It was "let's do it one more time for John.", but just kept going.

Cinesea is such a wonderful gathering of great folks sharing their passion for film & collecting.

I hope to make it there this year! And the Wildwood/beach location is an added bonus!

Thank you Doug, Shorty, & all that work hard to bring this event back every year.

James.

If I could just beam myself to the East coast I would join you all at Cinesea. Since that is highly improbable [Smile] I'll just wish you all a great time....AND PARTY ON!

I was there at the very first and I thanked John for what he'd done. I'm glad I got that chance!

I'll always remember that trip. The car I had at the time was over 20 years old and I didn't trust it for a trip that far so I rented a budget edition Hyundai: it was tiny, plasticky and noisy, but at least it wasn't old enough to vote and I felt I could depend on it.

I headed down the Jersey Shore into territory unknown. I was breaking the internet-barrier: people I'd only heard of, but never really met. Was it curiosity or a sense of adventure, or maybe just the sense that having a hobby is naturally better when it's social too!

I approached that room and I heard a sound: a small gauge projector pounding away at 24FPS. Since I'd graduated from High School this had gradually become MY sound: since I seemed to be the only person left in the world that made that sound anymore. That day it was their sound too, and soon it became OUR sound.

The highlight for me that weekend was dinner out: nothing fancy, just a nice little Italian place around the corner from the hotel. It was Doug and Shorty and John Cappazzo and Tom Stathes and his girlfriend. The food was great, the talk even greater.

I bought exactly one print that time: a Blackhawk "Live Ghost". To this day I consider it a souvenir since my mission going there wasn't really to buy films. In years since I've gotten a lot more and a lot nicer, but I still go mostly to enjoy the weekend.

I look back on that first time kind of nostalgically, but to be honest what we have now is even better: more activity, more people, more films for sale and two great film shows.

It's a lot closer than I would ever have guessed!

Flight Distance Reykjavik, Iceland to Wildwood, NJ

2,740 miles

Flight Distance Los Angeles to Wildwood, NJ

2,418 miles

Flight Distance Calculator

Paul came kind of by accident the first time, he was going to be in New York anyway.

-the second time it was actually on purpose!

However......since Paul flew into New York, let's compare:

LA to NY: 2787 miles

Reykjavik to NY: 2617 miles

No matter which way you look at it, thank you all for coming!

Ah!

-A measurement problem!

Is it total travel distance or net travel distance?

You came to one of the few I missed, so I didn't get to see 9.5mm at the Sea Theater.

-I regret that!

We haven't heard how the Sea weathered that last big storm. Wildwood got hit pretty hard: I hope it's OK.

We should try and get that downtown theatre "active" again - Dino, you're welcome always - Driving distance from North Jersey to South; 3 hours and ten minutes - Guess I'm the Shorty-est

The Spring CineSea and the Fall are pretty much the same animal: differences are few and very subtle.

For example if the phone in your room doesn't work, it must be Spring because they have been sitting unused for 5 months and the switch contacts are oxidized from the salt air. (Either ask the front desk or work 'em like the recording key on an abandoned Elmo!)

-on the other hand if you are out to breakfast and the waitress offers extra helpings free it means the restaurant is closing for the season: it must be Fall!

Green, cold swimming pool: Spring
Blue, cold swimming pool: Fall

The weather on average is what kinder people might call "brisk" at either time of the year. You can tell where people are from on the walk up to breakfast: the further south they live, the more arctic their outerwear!

There are exceptions: I'd say we've had at least two that it was actually warm or even hot. You need to allow for this possibility when you are packing or end up coming home with a "Wildwood, New Jersey" T shirt!

Oft thought about it myself Dom, I think the nearest airport to it is Philadelphia, not sure how to get there after that.

The nearest airport is Atlantic City (30 miles away?), but I'm not sure if there are international flights there.

If either of you got yourselves Stateside (not for example: Utah!...closer than that!), we would get you the rest of the way there for sure!
