Strictly "need-to-know" Super-8 film synopses

NEWS FLASH as reported on my Manila Site just moments ago...

I bet you're wondering what I've been working on for Laura Cowell's "SPLICE THIS!" SUPER 8 Film Festival In Toronto. Well, Laura wants to know too. So,I thought gee, what could be more private and intimate then posting this info on a blog or two? Without further ado then here it is, and remembering that this is on a strictly "need-to-know" basis here's what I've got so far:

Scratchimation Drama w/live music soundtrack

NOTE: this project is dependent on you. Filmmakers need to recycle? We accept your scrap Super8 stock. also *Free* DJ opportunity! Can you scratch vinyl? apply to PETE DAKO films c/o that blog or this blog ...(the one you're reading now).

Back up plan:
"Big Trouble in Tiny Town" (aka "Toy People in Toy Cars" or "Hats Off to You, You Dinky Menace!") Super8 SuperFilm by Pete Dako featuring Poetry by bill bissett See the long-awaited sequel to PETE DAKO's blockbuster 2000 epic, Pooch Doggy Do in: "Big Trouble." pre-dating and predicting the terrible tragedy of 9/11!

Dead Letter Blogs

Lisa and I were on the phone yakking about blogs and she told me she actually started working on a blog someplace awhile back but then she forget her passsword or the URL or something... so now it's somewhere someplace in cyberspace ...just more cyberspace space junk.

I thought that that was funny but then I started to really wonder just how many of these Dead Letter Blogs could be out there. The corker came when i actually stumbled across something I'd completely forgotten about. Mmm hmm, that's right... a website of my
which I started awhile back ...like 3 to 4 years back! Longer than many an OS n'est-ce pas? But lo and behold this may have been waaay years back, and everything ... but holy shizel manizel it's a got-dang fully functioning working blog.

Does anybody remember UserLand Frontier, or have you perhaps seen me walking around in my T-Shirt with a big cactus logo, and a cowboy hat? Well you might not recall Frontier but I sure do. Anyways, a bit of surfing around and I quickly discovered Dave Winer and my old friends at UserLand have been very busy inventing stuff like the RSS newsfeed and all kinds of new software to great popular and critical acclaim. Like Radio Userland and Manila (as in..you got it... my Manila site.) What... did these guys lay down the foundations for the entire BLOG CULTURE and CIVILIZATION while i was away?
