This is interesting. The boy pictured above is enjoying the new Nimbus 2000. It’s fashioned after the model seen in the filmed version of Harry Potter and the Sorceror’s Stone… Okay, so he seems to be enjoying it, which is fine. But who approved that picture? And what is the shopping parent supposed to think […]


Experiencing the end of the week exhaustion/exhilaration. Among the new movies arriving today (for Tuesday’s release date) are The Scorpion King, Nine Queens, Brotherhood of the Wolf and one of the greatest movies ever, The Thin Man. William Powell and Myrna Loy strike the perfect balance between comedy and mystery in that one. And it’s […]


Too busy to enter a proper notice today. It’s Tuesday. New Release Day. so I’ve got to scurry off to work and make sure the kiddies can get their hands on Murder By Numbers when we open our doors. in the meantime, here’s some more from the famous CPE Journal. :: CPE Journal Part 4 […]


Last night’s movie: 1 Giant Leap. I’m a sucker for the fusion of music and image, because often out of that synergy arises a powerful idea. It’s inspiration. It’s visual and auditory alchemy. And it can be a hell of a good time. I’ve championed films like Godfrey Reggio’s Koyaanisqatsi and Powaqqatsi, and Ron Fricke’s […]


Splitting headache for some reason. Reaching for aspirin, now. Not enough caffeine today. That’s because I’m out of coffee. Which must be why I had such a hard time getting up this morning.Which must also be why I didn’t post anything in the AM. Movement towards L.A. continues, but not exactly in a quicksilver fashion. […]


For your enjoyment, another segment of the CPE Journal… ::CPE Journal Part 3 :: Tuesday, March 15th 1994 My days have been repetitive but not exactly boring. They usually consist of coming in at 9:08 AM (eight minutes late no matter what time I get up) making the coffee (6 1/2 scoops for 11 cups) […]


:::From this morning’s writing journal::: “New idea of the day inspired by a current headline: THRILLER: A man, blinded in an accident, has his vision restored through artificial means (science, not crystals.) But the resulting hybrid provides far more than he bargained for. he can see an entire, sinister world that coexists with our own. […]


I think this is going to be the theme of my next mix. The lyrics are contained in one of the trax I’ll be using (“Ruhe” by Schiller) RUHE Ruhe, das höchste Glück auf Erden, kommt sehr oft nur durch Einsamkeit in das Herz. SILENCE/PEACE Peace, the highest pleasure on earth, very often comes to […]


Spent an inordinate amount of time working on jmt2k.com this morning. Adobe ImageReady can be maddening. Still trying to figure out just what the hell is going on with Netscape. And no actual writing getting done. Aside from this, anwyay. But as long as I’m here, might as well post the next installment of the […]

CPE Journal

What follows is the beginning of a sort of side-project associated with sixsquare.com . It’s a journal I kept during the period from Spring to Fall of 1994 while I was working as a Production Assistant for director Andrew Davis’s company, Chicago Pacific Entertainment. I had already been working there for a few months but […]
