Last Night A [Gameboy] Saved My Life

Sitting on a curb in Tribeca in perfect weather at 730pm last night, I kind of did and kind of didn't know that the rest of the evening would mark the beginning of what could very well be the best filmmaking experience of my life up to this point.

We have officially started shooting PLAY.

Owens is cutting all the footage right now so, unfortunately, I don't have any stills to share. I'll see if Levering can send me some pictures from his digital camera. In a week or so, we'll have a short video up as the first in a series of teasers and tastes of what people can expect from the final product.

Last night's lineup in order of appearance:
The Animal Style
Nullsleep (you must actually check this out)
^listen to Galaxy Tonight

Nullsleep in particular delivering an incredibly energetic show that everyone really got into (especially those crazy, slam-dancing 14 yr olds in the very front). It was also nice to have Jason, Paul, and Chris show up - made it feel like more of an event.

There was also this really cool guy named Jeff who had done some programming on a Commodore 64 and projected it in all its pixely goodness as a backdrop for the show. It really took me back to the days of screwing around with Kid Pix in the computer lab when I was in second grade and my sister, parents, and I were taking a tour of the middle school as my sister got ready to enter the 7th grade.

That kind of sums up the whole evening beautifully: a ton of feel good nostalgia. Even as I write this, I'm thinking of the day we brought home the Atari and plugged into a tv on a stand in our living room. As Pac Man glowed to life, it was the first (and last) time my family would ever gather around an entertainment system without my parents wanting to throw it out the window. Did you know that my mom and aunt used to play Mario 1? I can't believe I forgot about that. Everytime they jumped, they thought they had to jerk the controller upward in addition to pressing the appropriate button.

Maybe they'd like The Wii (nee Revolution) ?

Otherwise, there's some very exciting news from an editor concerning an article about PLAY in a major magazine but I won't say which until I actually have a copy of it in my hand (or a link to a page online)

Anyway, that's it for now. Time to go hang with the Maysles crowd. Have a good weekend my loyal one or two readers.
