(Cross-posted at Geekza. You can read Part 1 here.) A note before moving on with my tale: A few of you that read Part 1 observed rather quickly that I was a dumb bastard for not switching seats with the father in the other row. While I did make the observation that such an arrangement could be made while on the plane, the best response I can give was that the father was sitting in the middle seat. Between dealing with a crying kid that has some chance of calming…read more
(Cross-posted at Geekza.com) Warning: Star Wars *and* poker jargon in this series of posts. A very special niche few of you will understand both. You’ve been warned. Saturday Morning – Orlando, FL After the long week of very little sleep and a few all-nighters, I’d sent off everything to Trey for inclusion into the edit of Return of Pink Five: Volume 3. The cut wasn’t going to be complete by any stretch of the imagination, but our goal was realized: No green on the screen and a complete story, and…read more
It’s that time again. That time that I always dread, yet tell the most stories about afterwards. The time that tries mens’ souls; the time that tests our mettle. I refer, of course, to crunch week, the final days before our movie must be shaped into something presentable for the masses. To be truthful, I love this time. I never feel more accomplished or skilled as the week that I have 30 shots to do and I must do them NOW and there is no room for error. To rise…read more
Atomfilms and Lucasfilm announced the entries for this year’s Fan Movie Challenge, and while we weren’t expecting to enter the contest itself (we thought we were being shown as a seperate out of competition entry), there we are. Now seeing the competition this year, I don’t feel guilty about telling you to head over and watch our film, and if you like it, Vote for it! 🙂 I’ll be in Los Angeles attending the Fan Movie Challenge and also an exclusive showing of Return of Pink Five: Volume 3, which…read more
And now, because I got tagged by my own co-blogger (yeah, yeah, i’ll blog, geeze…), here’s 7 Things You Might Not Know about the PokerGeek: 1. I have seriously debated moving out of the country three times. Twice, I had said yes before changing my mind and had to cancel on the cheapest furniture mover I ever found… I’ve had opportunities to move in with friends and work on film projects and experience life outside the USA (once in the UK, once in Australia), and then I said yes and…read more
Every year I make off the cuff predictions about the NBC brackets and every year I’m way off, so let’s see what happens here. Due to my current employment I was biased on this one, but I think it’s funny. You can see the complete brackets here, thanks to Pokerwire! Clubs bracket (Winners) seperated by rounds: Elizabeth, Madsen, Lindgren, Greenstein, Seidel, Tranielloo, Seed, Reese Madsen, Greenstein, Seidel, Reese Greenstein, Reese Greenstein Spades: Esfandiari, Cloutier, Hachem, Wasicka, Sheikhan, Forrest, Shulman, Le Esfandiari, Wasicka, Forrest, Shulman Wasicka, Shulman Shulman Hearts (The Death…read more
Pokerbandits.ca got a piledriver from the Government with a big nasty showdown. A WHOIS will put to rest any suspicions that the shutdown is a hoax. The google cache is still available (I will not mention details or directions on how to find it here), but the website basically offered ways of working with Canadians to get money transferred online. Of course, if you’re interested in earning entries for live tournaments, it wouldn’t exactly help, would it? Please, God, let someone come forth and help us stop this madness, so…read more
Full Tilt Poker has announced a brand spankin’ new payment processor that they promise is nothing like WildCard. MyWebATM is supposed to do everything that you need for deposits *and* withrdawls, and they even send you an actual card so that the authorities can point to physical evidence of your dirty gambling whore practices when they haul you off to Sing-Sing. Whoops, sorry, I was channeling Jack Thompson there for a second. Well, Jack Thompson if he thought gambling was more evil than boys kissing in video games. Anyways, check…read more
