Excuse Our Dust

Nothing like living in a hotel that has major construction going on… even if your room is brand new and perfect, the dust in the hallways can be distracting.

Welcome to MCN Gen 2, where we are still hard at work. So sit back, relax, and pretend you don’t hear hammering.

    Hey, site looks great. One observation. The dark blue font for “Excuse Our Dust” reads well, However, at least viewed on my macbook , using Safai browser, the curated headline font color is super-bright and not so easy on the eyes.

    love the site – no dust at all! don’t disparage. websites, like language, constantly grow and change.

    honour the dead … life is for the living

    Looks like there’s a ton more content. It’s also nice to see all of your properties under one domain. Overall, great job.

    David, site looks fantastic! Lots of info. I’m taking a small pride in it because I talked to you about it at the Famer’s Market…you probably started it before my comments but I’m still taking credit. Great job.

“I remember very much the iconography and the images and the statues in church were very emotional for me. Just the power of that, and even still — just seeing prayer card, what that image can evoke. I have a lot of friends that are involved in the esoteric, and I know some girls in New York that are also into the supernatural. I don’t feel that I have that gift. But I am leaning towards mysticism… Maybe men are more practical, maybe they don’t give into that as much… And then also, they don’t convene in the same way that women do. But I don’t know, I am not a man, I don’t want to speak for men. For me, I tend to gravitate towards people who are open to those kinds of things. And the idea for my film, White Echo, I guess stemmed from that — I find that the girls in New York are more credible. What is it about the way that they communicate their ideas with the supernatural that I find more credible? And that is where it began. All the characters are also based on friends of mine. I worked with Refinery29 on that film, and found that they really invest in you which is so rare in this industry.”

“The word I have fallen in love with lately is ‘Hellenic.’ Greek in its mythology. So while everyone is skewing towards the YouTube generation, here we are making two-and-a-half-hour movies and trying to buck the system. It’s become clear to me that we are never going to be a perfect fit with Hollywood; we will always be the renegade Texans running around trying to stir the pot. Really it’s not provocation for the sake of being provocative, but trying to make something that people fall in love with and has staying power. I think people are going to remember Dragged Across Concrete and these other movies decades from now. I do not believe that they will remember some of the stuff that big Hollywood has put out in the last couple of years. You’ve got to look at the independent space to find the movies that have been really special recently. Even though I don’t share the same world-view as some of my colleagues, I certainly respect the hell out of their movies which are way more fascinating than the stuff coming out of the studio system.”
