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.
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.
Here is the archive of of stories from LG15 TODAY concerning Glenn's radio show on BreeFM.
