Deadmau5 video shoot for "Lai"

This was my first video shoot for grammy nominated and Juno award winning artist "Deadmau5" pronounced "Dead mouse".
The question I have been asked most was he at the video shoot, and no he was not.  Present at the shoot was actress/ model/ dancer Vanessa Lai, singer, songwriter, performance artist, diva Melleny Melody, production company Rattailfilms  and many more.
We started filming roughly about 3am, I thought I was going to pass out but the excitement and energy got me pumped. We had  lots of coffee and Redbull to keep people going, I passed on that. Like I said, I was feeling purely energetic and I surprised myself with my stamina.
Everyone worked extremely hard and we had such a good time filming this. I was totally impressed with Jim Primrose and Jamie Carswell's professionalism and how they made this a fun video shoot while burning that midnight oil.
Vanessa Lai is the star of the video, like always she worked very hard.
Plus all the dancers, make up artist, even the security guard who stuck around all night were troopers.
The video should be out in a few weeks, I am sure you will all get a kick out of it...
Enjoy some pics...

UNKNOWN MIZERY & ANEEWAY | EMPTY HANDED WARRIOR OFFICIAL VIDEO

This blog promotes Ontario talent and some of the best hip hop... like this.

Greasers VS Socs, a costume Shindig!

On any given Friday night, you can walk in to almost any bar in Toronto and have a good time. There are soo many great parties, amazing D.J.s and talented bands in this city that it's hard t0 get bored. There is always something for everyone. In fact, on the first Friday of every month in the basement of College Street's hottest new venue, Crawford, you can transport yourself, fifty (50) years back in time and dance your ass off to DJs playing all original Jump Blues, Rockabilly, Northern Soul, Motown and R&B 7" 45RPM records from the late 1950s and early 1960s! To top it off, on May 6th, 2011 they are turning it into a costume Party!
If you, like me, were a fan of the 1967 novel by S.E Hinton "The Outsiders", then you're gonna love this! The theme for this particular costume party is Greasers VS. Socs. The later is pronounced "sohshes" for those that haven't seen the classic Francis Ford Coppola film version starring Ralph Machio, Matt Dillon, C. Thomas Howell, Patrick Swayze and Diane Lane. Go see it, you'll be glad you did! Once, you've seen the film or read the book, you'll be excited to get your Pomade Pompadour primed and your Dad's leather jacket or letterman sweater out of the closet and rush on down to Crawford for the first in a series of 1950s costume parties being held there on the first Friday of every month.


The party's called Shindig! Named for a short lived ABC television show from theearly 1960s hosted by Los Angeles Disc Jockey, Jimmy O'Neill. They even use the same logo! I could go on about pop culture references of Shindig from the Ramones to the Flintstones but none of that really matters. What matters is, this is the only party of its kind in Toronto, that I know of, and it's a guaranteed good time!

Mississugas own, this guy is off the chain...

Shindig Presents... Greasers Vs. Socs!

I have been listening to a lot of Splattermonkey podcast mixes on my days off. I am becoming quite the fan. I am loving his soul and funk mixes, brings me back to a time I use to get down in the living room back in the 70s.
I wouldn't mind checking out "Greasers Vs Socs".



Check some of his funky stuff...

Yours truly...

At a video shoot... more to come down the road.
Im the bear on the far right.

Glimpses of Ontario 1942 Technicolor

Times have changed, in my opinion not always for the better, I prefer a more simple lifestyle. Yet it is amazing to see how far we have come and built such a great and beautiful province.

Delay...

As some of you may know, this blog was going to start filming some interviews in a studio.
It has been delayed, when will it start... hard to say, I would hope before the end of the summer.

Adam Copeland AKA "Edge" retires as WWE champion due to medical reasons...

I remember years ago in my early 20s wanting to go watch wrestling at the Sky dome and nobody would go with me. So I forgot about it and went to hang out with some college friends. None of these guys were into wrestling, I think they thought it was below them to watch such things. I didn’t care, I loved wrestling but I never bored them with details of the current story lines. I was shocked when one one guy asked us if we wanted to go watch wrestling! Some people didn’t even look his way, I was curious and had to ask why. He told me he knew one of the wrestlers and he was just starting out, he referred to him as Adam. I remember reading in the Toronto star wrestling column about Adam Copeland and they said with in a few years watch for this guy to be a major contender in the game.
They announce Edge is from Toronto but he is really from a small town called Orangeville, that is how this friend of mine new him, they worked together as teens in a grocery store. He told me Adam was a real hardcore wrestling fan ever since he knew him.
So now I had someone to talk wrestling with, well just Adam Copeland stories. I remember a bunch of us walking to a convenience store and picking up a WWF magazine with Edge and Christian with the titles on the cover and showing him. His eyes would widen and he would look dumbfounded and say things like "I can remember when he put me in headlocks"
As time went on, all the friends went there separate ways and I don’t know if my friend still followed Adam's illustrious career, as Adam won several titles including the World Heavyweight championship 11 times!
I had the chance to see Adam aka EDGE wrestle several times, he always was extremely entertaining and never had a boring match. I had read a few months back that he wanted to retire but in Toronto, maybe by next year. Unfortunately due to some several medical issues, he had to retire pretty much right away.
Very sad to hear, he was one of the most talented guys currently in the game.
Enjoy your ice cream dude!

Brand New Music Video for HEAVY METAL KINGS directed by Tom Vujcic for "REEL WOLF PRODUCTIONS"

HEAVY METAL KINGS is not a Canadian band but the video director is, Tom has done some serious videos for some serious artist.
Also... if you are at work or got kids around... not a good time to play it, language and some scenes are questionable. Im not hating on this, it is a great video, but your Boss may not think so!
Hype stuff!
Tom is one of the most gifted and growing directors in Toronto in my opinion, be on the look out!!
Another Banger dude, I will support you to the end!!

News from RATTAILFILMS...

This is my girlfriends and good friend Jim Primrose film company. I help out when I can by telling people about the company, getting people to come out, shoot videos and such.
I just got a update from Jim and my girlfriend confirmed it...


"Rattailfilms has been asked to shoot behind the scenes for the feature film, Silent Hill3D...."


That is pretty damn cool!


I know the last one was filmed mostly in Brantford Ontario, all I could find out so far was  "Production was delayed when a freak snowstorm hit the set in Cambridge, Ontario on 23 March 2011."
From what I have read is that principal photography has also started in Toronto.


My honest opinion on movies based on video games is pretty low, Street Fighter, Mario Brothers, Double Dragon plus many more were all terrible. I would say SILENT HILL is exempt from that list... I thought the movie was pretty freaky. You didn't even really have to play the game to enjoy this movie.
Looking forward to the movie but mostly looking forward to seeing Rattailfilms expanding and moving forward!
