Serious Shirley

More information on that soon when the podcast gets updated. Have some great guests lined up! I wanted to make a post though and point you guys towards my buddy and past guest Roland Luitgaarden’s new sketch comedy Youtube channel … Continue reading

This is what I look at half of the day.

Episode 49 – Set Rats

Good Morning, internet. This weeks episode is definitely a strange change of pace but I think you guys will enjoy. The other day I came to work (set) on the film Sake Bomb with my iPhone’s trusty recorder switched on and recorded throughout the day random little tidbits of set life. We talk to Grip dep, producers, art department, electric, P.A.’s, and background actors. Forget anything you’ve ever seen in a making of documentary. This … Continue reading

First dates are always a little awkward.

Eric England in “Mindfreaking and Directing”

Good morning, internet. This weeks guest is the most talented writer director Eric England. I’ve been trying for months to get Eric on the show to talk about directing Madison County, Roadside, Contracted and to figure out just how he broke into this industry. Get ready for a fascinating discussion on directing, writing, maneuvering in the business, jumping from independent to studio pictures, to VIP Hollywood parties with piles of cocaine. Eric is open, honest, … Continue reading

Obviously being on my show is THE highlight of her career.

Solange Schwalbe in “Dirty By’s and Vocal Foley”

Good morning, internet. This weeks guest is our first Emmy award winner. What does she do? Well it depends on who you ask. If you were to ask Steven Spielberg he’d say she was a great foley supervisor. If you were to ask Joe Dante he’d say she was a great dialogue editor. Either way you’d discover Solange is a fantastic post sound specialist. On this episode her and I sit down to discuss her … Continue reading

This is the best I could do without spoiling the video.


I don’t exactly know what this is, why it was made, or what it the response is going to be but I just majorly geeked out. If you are someone who knows the difference between justice…and Punishment…watch the following. Holy shit. Apparently it’s just a fan film that Tom Jane and Pearlman decided to be in, but good lord does this not get me in the mood for another Punisher film. -I’ll see you on … Continue reading

Todd kept pretending to be Bob Fosse during all of his close ups.

Todd Farmer in “Losing your head in Screenwriting”

Good morning, internet. This weeks guest on Same Shit, Different Show is screenwriter and actor Todd Farmer! Todd and I met a few times over the years at various horror gatherings but I never really knew the guy until we did American Muscle together, where Todd played the main antagonist. Not to mention a hilarious story containing Nick Principi’s penis and Todd’s fake head. While we go deep with American Muscle, we also dig into … Continue reading

If you’ve seen the Halloween 25 years … Continue reading
