I Know Catherine, The Log Lady KickStarter Campaign


The documentary I Know Catherine, The Log Lady is still raising funds: http://kck.st/2KwsLQC

This documentary will not only cover Catherine E. Coulson’s time as the Log Lady on Twin Peaks, but it will also cover her work with the Oregon Shakespeare Festival, her work behind the scenes of films like Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan and Eraserhead, her early life and start as an actress, and more.

There are some really fun perks for donating and some very rare footage, including an extended interview with David Lynch about his decades long friendship with Catherine, that will only see the light of day if the project gets funded.

Director Richard Green was a producer on the 2002 documentary David Lynch Presents: I Don’t Know Jack and can be seen in Mulholland Dr. (in Club Silencio).

No Home Movies: March 2016 in Films


As many of you know, I moved across the country in March to start working at #TCMHQ . Packing up my life and started a new job at in a new city ( and driving across 8 states) was quite the ordeal. In fact it didn’t leave much time for movie watching. I was hoping to relaunch Movie Quote of the Day thus month, but it may be a bit longer. Please keep following the Facebook page for cool links and (mostly) female directed movies centric news. As always, the list of what I did manage to watch can be found after the cut.

“I’m an artist, you know?” – Philip Seymour Hoffman as Rusty in “Flawless”

“Yeah, great art is about conflict and pain and guilt and longing and love disguised as sex, and sex disguised as love.” – Lester Bangs, Almost Famous

The thing that was so great about Philip Seymour Hoffman was that he really was an artist who disappeared into every one of his roles. He’s Dusty from Twister, he’s Brandt from The Big Lebowski, Lester Bangs, Truman Capote and so many more memorable roles. No matter how big or how small the role was, you knew he would be good and you know he would bring something different to the table. He was a big, bright, shining star who burned out far too soon.

Ellen DeGeneres to host the Oscars


Ellen-DeGeneres

Detractors from last year’s Oscars have something to celebrate: Months after the most recent Oscars host Seth MacFarlane said he wouldn’t be reclaiming the spotlight, TV star Ellen DeGeneres tweeted Friday that she would be taking up the hosting mantle.DeGeneres returns for take two, as she also hosted the 79th Academy Awards in 2007, for which she received a Primetime Emmy nomination for Outstanding Individual Performance in a Variety or Music Program. The 86th Academy Awards will air March 2 on ABC.

“I am so excited to be hosting the Oscars for the second time,” said DeGeneres, in a statement. “You know what they say — the third time’s the charm.”

Producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron revealed the announcement via traditional means, too, releasing a statement that embraced DeGeneres’ gift for comedy, warmth and humanity.

“As a longtime friend, we had always hoped to find a project for us to do together and nothing could be more exciting than teaming up to do the Oscars,” said Zadan and Meron.

“She is beloved everywhere and we expect that the audience at the Dolby Theatre, and in homes around the globe, will be as excited by this news as we are.”

DeGeneres has made a name for herself with The Ellen DeGeneres Show, which has racked up 45 Daytime Emmys during its 10 seasons. She got her start as an emcee at a local comedy club in New Orleans before hitting the TV and feature film circuit. DeGeneres recently announced the highly anticipated sequel to Finding Nemo, Disney-Pixar’s Finding Dory, currently scheduled to be released in November 2015.

The Academy Awards will take place at the Dolby Theatre at Hollywood and Highland Center.
