Party at casa Nicholson


Annie Nicholson just posted an update on Nick Nicholson's blog. If you follow the Filipino section on Dvdmaniacs you'll know that Andrew Leavold is once again back in the Philippines to do what it is he does in regards to Filipino cinema (basically everything to scoop up more info!). And over on Annie & Nick's blog you can read an account of their meeting, party and check the pix. It's been about thee months since Nick Nicholson passed away and it's definitely weird not to see any more of his blog updates, sometimes on films, sometimes on life in general, and sometimes wild posts about stuff that pissed him off. Good to see Jim Gaines was there too (I'm sure you're aware he was in tons of trashy Filipino Vietnam War movies and action movies like THE LAST HUNTER, STRIKE COMMANDO 2, ONE ARMED EXECUTIONER, and he's kept doing films when everyone else had chucked in the towel; He was in Mattei's ZOMBIE THE BEGINNING from 2007). For the update and photos go here. Thanks to Annie for keeping us updated.




NEW LABELS
When I started this blog I decided to only make labels for specific film entries. All other posts are simply labelled "update". Well, it seemed like such a grand idea when I started out and it probably would have been if I'd only written a handful of posts. But now two years later, I've got a couple hundred updates and it's basically a mess! Anybody who would like to check something has to go thru all the old "update" posts in order to check what they're about. Yes, yes, don't tell me it would've been so much easier had I labelled them with something to describe their individual contents right away. Usch!!! Anyway, I'll go thru them and add new labels down the road. Right now, and in accordance with this update, I have gone thru the old posts and have labelled all the posts that deal with Nick Nicholson. If you'd like to check them you can either click the label under this post or click here.

  1. Hey Jack, once I get back to Australia tomorrow I'll start updating you on what really went on in the 'Pines over the last few weeks. Let me give you a small teaser: the guy with the grey hair is Andy Andico, and the lady on the left of me is Vivian Villahermosa: they were the Philippines side of Davian International (David Hung and his wife Ann formed the Hong Kong end). I did a lengthy interview with Andy and Vivian, and thus the Davian tale is now complete! More to follow, film at 11....

Yes, we have a comment filter now! It seems most comments these days come from shit spammers in India so there you go.

Bikini girls with machine guns

Yep, this video is from the one they're watching in Tarantino's JACKIE BROWN. It's an awesome video; I mean all it is is a bunch of scantly clad sexy babes with automatic guns going: "This is an AK47" pow pow pow pow - Haha. Absolutely fantastic! xD.
