On this special episode of Piecing It Together, we follow up Episode 42’s discussion of indie-horror film Dry Blood by talking to writer/star/composer Clint Carney. I had met Clint at the FilmQuest Film Festival last year and when I saw the trailer for his film, I thought it would make for a great movie to cover on the show. I was really excited that he was up for a filmmaker follow-up episode.
On this special episode of Piecing it Together I’m joined by returning co-hosts Josh Bell and Jason Harris to discuss our picks for the Top 10 movies of 2018. With only two movies that ended up on all three of our lists, its a great, fun conversation that gets into a ton of movies in what turned out to be a great year for cinema.
On this Special Episode of Piecing It Together, I interview director Ben Yonker about “Artificial,” an incredible music video he made for a song of mine. This is something different than we usually do here on the show, but “Artificial” is probably the thing I’m most proud of in 2018, and it is like a film in its own right, and we get into a great conversation about indie filmmaking and figure out some puzzle pieces for the video along the way.
On this Special Episode of Piecing It Together, I repost a guest appearance I recently did on the Set Lusting Bruce Podcast. Set Lusting Bruce is a podcast all about Bruce Springsteen. I was a guest for two episodes, the first was a general conversation about music, podcasting and Bruce, but the second was a countdown of the host, Jesse Jackson and my favorite movie music moments. It’s a great movie talk and I thought it would be something you’d all want to hear.
On this Special Episode of Piecing It Together, we follow-up Episode 18’s In Memory Of with an interview with the film’s writer/director Eric Stanze. In Memory Of is a wild independent film and was brought to me by Chad Clinton Freeman, who knows his stuff when it comes to these kinds of crazy, unique movies, so I was really glad that we got to cover it on the show. It’s been a long while since Episode 18 but I’ve always wanted to go back and talk to Eric Stanze about the puzzle pieces Chad and I discussed and I’m glad to finally get a chance to do it.
On this Special Episode of Piecing It Together, we follow-up Episode 26’s The Beast with an interview with the film’s writer/directors Ryan & Cody LeBoeuf. The brothers are based here in Las Vegas, so getting to not only cover their film, but do this follow-up where we discuss some of the puzzle pieces we got into on the original episode was an awesome experience. Josh Bell and I really enjoyed The Beast, so we encourage you to watch it on Amazon and then check out this interview!
On this special Mini-Episode series that we’re going to call Piecing Dave Together, host David Rosen fills you in on what’s happening in his life, his music, his projects, and everything else he’s been up to. These occasional mini-episodes will serve to fill in the blanks so that he doesn’t have to ramble too much about stuff during the regular episodes.
On this special episode of Piecing It Together, I decided to share Episode 33 of my other podcast, Bird Road. While Bird Road is normally a show about news, politics and comedy that I do with my best friend Q, sometimes we dig into culture and end up talking movies, and on Episode 33, we talked almost entirely about movies. First we interviewed Cristian Ponce, the creator of Frecuencia Kirlian aka Ghost Radio, a really cool animated web series that’s influenced by things such as John Carpenter, The X Files and Frank Miller. After the interview, Q and I talk about my favorite movies of the year so far, as well as run down the list of some of the most acclaimed movies of the year.
On this special episode of Piecing It Together, I interview filmmaker Joe Lujan and actress/radio personality Corey Taylor, the organizers of this year’s Las Vegas 48 Hour Film Project. The 48 Hour Film Project is an event that happens in cities all over the world where teams of filmmakers are tasked with a specific set of instructions and have to make an entire short film in 48 hours. I’ve actually participated in it many times myself as a music composer, and it’s always a fun time and leads to some crazy, fun, interesting films.
On this special episode of Piecing It Together, I interview and get reactions from writer/director Rolfe Kanefsky about our episode that we did on Bus Party To Hell (Episode 8 of this show). This is the first in what we hope to make a regular series of getting reactions from filmmakers. This was the perfect opportunity to do this first one though because the movie, Bus Party To Hell, which has been available on VOD, iTunes and most streaming movie stores for a while now, is finally out TODAY on Blu-ray/DVD! It can be purchased from many popular stores that sell movies, and on June 26th, it hits 20,000 Redbox locations across the country. So be on the look-out for Bus Party To Hell, a crazy, blood & boob filled movie in which a satanic cult stops a party bus on its way to Burning Man and all hell breaks loose. Starring Tara Reid, Sadie Katz and Stefani Blake.
