I’m wearing two different colored socks today.

March 21, 2010

It’s true. One is black and one is white, and they are even different brands.


Anyway, to get to the real point of this spontaneous post…

If you haven’t heard already, the next Neckbrace Fest has been scheduled and the plans are gargantuan times fifty-six this time around. I’d say try with all of your might to be in attendance on Saturday, June 26th at The Real Lincoln Estate. For all of the info you need on the Fest, visit the OFFICIAL SITE.

Also, I went to a Tony Marshall/BLT/Montauk Monster show last night.

It was stellar.

Neckbrace Substitute is “Leaving”

September 3, 2009

I know there has been yet another dry spell when it comes to posting around this establishment, but I assure you there has been no lying around and festering on my part. After the successful Neckbrace Substitute Music Festival 2.0 that Tony Marshall and I organized on August 15th, the world of the Neckbrace has only gotten busier. A little over two weeks ago, my good friend Robert Mathison had a spontaneous fusion of thoughts and desires which led to him writing three-fourths of a full-length screenplay in the span of an entire day. When he came to me with the idea for this new project, a drama/comedy called Leaving, I was immediately ready to take on this fairly large task in any contributing way I could. I am pleased to say that at this moment we are past the groundbreaking moments of the filming process, and have dove head first into another try at the full-length film process. Robert is the sole writer and the main star of the film, which is almost entirely based on the real life events that we are all experiencing today, and especially him. I was ecstatic when he asked if I would direct and edit the film, to say the least.

So we are off on another journey of the daunting kind, but this time with a much more organic and relaxed feeling when it comes to every aspect of the creation process. Look for more information to come on a regular basis as we steamroll through the Leaving process. We plan to have it in the can and available to you all by the end of this month.

See you soon.

Tony Marshall recently performed at an open mic at the Old Town Ale House. He uploaded this video yesterday, which features two stellar performances of “Nothing Is The Center Of Everything” and “Slight Reprise”, both from the album Centralia.

Daily Neckbrace Fest 2.0 Spots begin today

July 23, 2009

Starting today and running through the day of the Neckbrace Substitute Music Festival 2.0, I will be uploading new “spots” in anticipation of the event. All of the spots will include footage of the first Neckbrace Fest, which accidentally ended up serving as simply a promotion for its sequel – which promises actual music and films.

Head on over to the “Neckbrace Substitute Music Festival 2.0” page that I made right here on this blog to check out Spot #1, and be sure to check back each and every day until the day of the masterful event. There will be a total of 24 spots before it is all said and done.

For all things busy Neckbrace…

July 19, 2009

Tony Marshall has recently spent a ton of time revamping the NECKBRACE SUBSTITUTE website. Its new look is quite nice, and what’s most important is that we actually have a lot of content/news/events to offer up now, and it can all be found there. I hope that you take a look.

Also, I hope some of you can mark Saturday, August 15th on your calendars for attendance to a second go-round of the Neckbrace Fest. New venue, same ol’ fellas. Maybe we’ll see you there. Details for it can be found at the site.

New film reviews sprouting out in the coming week as well. Stay Ferguson Reviews-tuned.
