WHAT TIME IS IT?...Coverage of Glenn on BreeFM

Glenn, live on BreeFM @11pm EST, Wednesday.

Glenn talked about some of the business realities of putting together an online show. The YouTube partnership alone is not the answer, but there is good stuff on the horizon for RedEarth88. It takes a lot of networking and talking. It is a fast changing world and things tend to line up at one time. Glenn knows what he wants to do with RedEarth88 and he wants to do it right.

Glenn is incredibly passionate about online video and is ready to hit the ground running with production as things come together. He is more frustrated than anyone by how long some of this stuff takes, and he has been focused on getting it to that point. Glenn tends to live his life counting on the best case scenario, and has hit the ground running before based on his passion alone - but he's focused right now on putting the horse in front of the cart.

End Tags: it would make sense to time those with the next batch of videos.

Glenn loves movies. He says "Iron Man" is really really really good. Glenn loves Marvel Comics. He also saw the documentary movie "King Of Kong " and he was entertained out of his mind". It is about 2 guys. One who held the world record for Donkey Kong. The other is someone who challenged the record. It led up to a showdown in Florida. It was the story of a guy who just wanted a fair chance against "the system". It is so good that you forget that you are watching a documentary. It has a lot of heart and it has a very natural feel to it.

The movie rights have been optioned and it could turn into a theatrical.

Originally in "Back To The Future" they were going to use Petaluma: the town both Glenn and Mesh are from. It was used in both Peggy Sue Got Married and American Graffiti. Eventually it was shot on a Hollywood backlot.

This morning Glenns saw that their is going to be a sequel to Point Break. In Purple Monkey returns Glenn reference Point Break. Daniel spending time with Jonas was like Point Break.

Daniel: How can Bree not want to talk about what happened? It sounds like one of those things she's supposed to say. Her mom once got mad at her because she was crying because it...projected weakness or something. This whole...not wanting to talk thing? Reminds me of back in October with the fake ceremony and... her telling me not to get involved. She's lucky I did. Jonas told me that his "Bree mental health exercise" failed. Miserably. Which frankly doesn't- that doesn't surprise me. Jonas... he's really into talking about feelings. Don't be fooled by the whole "bro" thing. Actually, he's kind of like Patrick Swayze in Point Break... except we don't surf. Or rob banks. We just talk. He gets misty-eyed and we hug it out. (laughs) It's only a matter of time before Jonas has us doing trust falls. That's not gonna cheer Bree up. I know what will.

Purple Monkey Returns
Been trying to figure out how to cheer Bree up and I got a good idea.

The "Get Smart" movie that is coming out looks much better than it has any right to.

"Just One Of The Guys" has one interesting plot detail. An 18 year old character who is into James Brown? Now that is a little quirkly. It reminds Glenn of Freaks and Geeks.

Jonah Hill was supposed to be in the next transformers movie but it is not happening because they are producing the "21 Jump Street" movie. Johnny Depp was amazing in the original 21 Jump Street.

From Wikipedia:

Jonah Hill (born December 20, 1983 is an American actor and screenwriter. Hill has had a successful career as an actor in comedic films, appearing in roles in the films Accepted, Grandma's Boy, 40 Year Old Virgin, Knocked Up, Superbad, Evan Almighty, This Side of the Truth, and Forgetting Sarah Marshall.

When Glenn was 10 until almost a year ago (if Glenn did not become a writer/director) he would have wanted to be a high school narc. A year ago he has to let the dream go. He has seen every episode of 21 Jump Street.

Glenn would love to bring 21 Jump Street back to TV. He thinks he could get Johnny Depp to be in it. What if he became a teacher in a high school. What if there was a Columbine shooting. It would be a TV movie (a so called back door pilot). It would be gritty and real. Maybe we could get Shakira to record the theme.

Glenn commented on "Kevin Smith - Superman Reborn" and said there are a lot of interesting people in the entertainment industry. It is not always profitable to tell things how they are.

  1. Nothing a Dr. Pepper won't fix:)

    Kevin Smith - Superman Reborn ...was one of the funniest things I have ever heard.

  2. Down With Anonymous Haters!!!!
    Anyone with me to take them OUT!

  3. While I like redearth88 a lot, I'm getting a bit tired of Glenn sharing with us what's basically the same material over and over again. He's been working on The Business Stuff. Sara is shooting a movie. Oh, and his idea for a "Point Break" sequel. It was interesting the first time; now Glenn is sounding alarmingly like that uncle who keeps relating the same anecdote about his national service days.

    Maybe, given the lack of news and new material, Glenn should make his show about the nature of relationships and friendships for awhile, because I've heard the material last night's show many many times and repetition has not bred fondness.

  4. ^agreed. either start producing content or get out. His radio show covers practically the entire front page of this blog, and it's essentially a transcript of some dude talking about random stuff. It gets really annoying when I have to scroll all the way down just to see something of relevance to the lg15 world...

  5. kts there are tag links on the right that show only material relevant to lonelygirl15 or katemodern. If that is all you want then bookmark that link and the blogspot will be customised to your taste.

  6. As for content, I learn so much each show. Perhaps that is because I have to look up so much on Wikipedia to tie things together but I can assure you that there was a ton of new material last night as there always is.

    On occasion, the relevance of some topics to the genre does not become apparent right away. However it is amazing how much of this stuff is relevant to the ongoing meta discussion of the genre on this blog.

  7. Also KTS there is a link right at the top of the blog that takes you to the latest LG15 video so there is really no need to scroll if that is what you are interested in.

    We always strive to listen to comments and respond in any way we can subject to the limitations of the blog design.

    If people want more Lonelygirl15 stories they are free to write them. We could actually use much better coverage of the puzzles but the idea of the blog is that anything current will be right at the top.

  8. I love the shows and appreciate the recaps. Last night was just the kind of update we needed, I believe.

  9. I'm not saying I hate the recaps...I'm saying they take up too much space and bump the majority of the days (and sometimes weeks) community videos down to another page. I dont want to watch JUST lg15, I want to watch other community videos as well.

    Seriously, are the song lists, embedded older videos, and massive wiki images THAT necessary for a recap?

  10. The post works as one post and the way we have blogger set it keeps the same number of posts on the front page. Hence it does not force older videos off the front page any more than any other single post. We always try and keep the setting so that videos stay on the main page for 24 hours which seems quite fair.

    That said we might move the playlist to the archive blog after the show is over and that might help a little. The songs often play into the context of the meta discussion so it helps to have the list available while the article is being written but after the fact that could change.

    As for the old LG15 video that was highly relevant to the point being made as was the transcript from LGPedia. Did you listen to the radio show?

    The images were set to the minimum blogger will allow and they are intended to punctuate the recap to make it more readable. A lot of people do not appreciate on big block of text and they are intended to highlight specific topics.

    We do the best we can. Sigh.

  11. Yes, there are a certain number of posts on the front page, no matter how long those posts are. The recap, whether its a single sentence or everything you see here, only moves one post off the page.

    So, the recaps really have the same affect on the operation of the blog as any other one post.

  12. It's funny how these comments, the last couple of times at least, have turned into a point-counterpoint on Glens actions/inactions.
    Well...maybe not so funny...but interesting nonetheless.
    Redearth is a radio show now. The sooner we come to terms with this, the sooner we can move on.
