    I met them all and studied with Joe Morello in the late 60’s. Dave and Joe and Paul and Eugene were great to be around. Once again I am saden at hearing of Dave’s Passing, A great man!

    it is due to a friend drummer, a man I consider to be like a brother, that I learned more about Dave, and Joe Morello.
    Daves music is stained in my brain.
    A great musician.

    My Dad was his greatest fan when I was a kid. I swear “Take Five” is etched in my brain, forever. Sad when they go, but this man left “forever” for us to enjoy in his music. Rest in Peace, Dave! And, thank you for sharing your great, great talent with the world!

“It’s a film festival’s job—and increasingly so—to create moments of recognition, of enjoyment, of shock, of learning. Not of consumerism. Not of implementing cultural policy. But moments without pretence, unclouded by vested interests, by intervention, by cynicism, by everyday business. Committed to nothing but the thing itself. Under obligation to nothing, to no one, not even to the filmmakers themselves. To basically seek access to a form that does not yet exist, a place no one has been to, a time that has not yet come. ’A form that thinks, and a thought that forms,’ as Jean-Luc Godard has it.”
~ Hans Hurch, late director of the Viennale

“There’s a mass belief that if you’re texting, you’re somehow not interrupting the conversation—you’re not being rude. It’s an illusion of multitasking. I started filmmaking when people didn’t expect to have a phone on set, when it would’ve been seen as unprofessional to pull out a phone. Phones have become a huge distraction, and people work much better without them. At first it causes difficulty, but it really allows them to concentrate on what they’re doing. Everybody understands. I’ve had a lot of crews thank me. With a set, we’re trying to create a bubble of alternate reality.”
~ Christopher Nolan
