It's been ages since I put a post up on this site, so I'll just quickly rundown the latest news. It's rare that I talk about anything terrestrial on this blog, but I recently produced the soundtrack for a documentary called John McGill Banned, that screened May 16th 2015 at the Art of Brooklyn Film Fest. I have to give a few shoutouts.

Lots of work was put into the film, so special thanks to everyone who helped and saw the screening: John McGill and family, Michael Broz, Gabrielle Napolitano, Stoned Soul's Rishi Puntes, Eric Nevarez,  Ali McMordie -- you guys are AWESOME!

After viewing the film, it would be nice to leave a comment below on Vimeo. It would also be nice to share about it on social media and offline as well. The purpose in producing a short was to attract an audience so Stranger at the Pentagon (originally a book by the late Dr. Frank E. Stranges), could be made into a full-length feature film. Kickstarter campaigns, calling-in favors, and good old-fashioned hard work got it this far. Please help by watching the movie and spreading the word. Of course contributing would be even better!
