FILE THIS UNDER: SOMEBODY’S INTERN IS GOING TO BE FIRED !!
or: WHO DROPPED THE BALL – THE NEW YORK POST or the MICROSOFT P.R. TEAM ??!!
in a big full page spread on this year’s SUNDANCE FILM FESTIVAL 2010 – in today’s NEW YORK POST, on Page 3 – no less !! – BING – THE TRENDY NEW MICROSOFT ‘SEARCH’ ENGINE ?? – and – BILL GATES – THE NEWLY ‘SWINGING’ TECH NERD and BRAND NEW INDIE MOVIE FAN – and – THE NEW YORK POST – and I guess, IT’S SO-CALLED – ‘MOVIE’ TEAM – ALL LOOKED BAD – witness – second paragraph up from the bottom. quote:
“At another bash, GATES chatted up filmmaker ONDI TIMONER, the auteur behind documentaries ‘DIG!’ and the upcoming ‘We Live In Public’, sources said.”
don’t they have fact checkers at the POST – for this kind of stuff ? – I mean ‘We Live In Public – not only isn’t
“upcoming” – but it goddamn won !! – last year !! the 2009 GRAND JURY AWARD FOR BEST U.S. DOCUMENTARY !!
hope they didn’t rely on a BING ‘SEARCH’ to come up with that faux-pas !! so, who takes the fall here ?
probably the MICROSOFT P.R. team – the POST can’t seriously be expected to know what’s happening in the ‘cutting edge’ arts. in fact – they didn’t even post any serious coverage on last year’s 2009 festival – except for maybe 2 PARIS HILTON/CHEESY CELEB SWAG stories !! if I had to guess – since from all appearances – MICROSOFT & BING are ($$) footing the bill for the POST’S new found interest in Indie filmmaking !! – !! LOL !! I’d say – that it was the MICROSOFT P.R. TEAM who dropped the ball !! in their ‘communication/for immediate press release’ – re: all things BING – SUNDANCE party blitz – !! don’t look too good for a ‘SEARCH’ engine, esp the new trendy one – to get simple, important and basic facts like that – all wrong !!
if it was the POST – who blew it – wow – guys: where are you – in the ICE AGE ? – just another New York City player playing big shot – without a full deck. what else is new / you’re a whole year behind the rest of the world – even the NEW YORK TIMES – that so-called – by the POST – gray lady – gave ‘We Live In Public’ – and, ONDI TIMONER !! and JOSH HARRIS !! – tons of press last year !! SHAME SHAME SHAME – for making BILL GATES and BING – look like the – real ‘cutting edge’ losers !! – they probably – really are. not that I am a big fan of google – but that’s another story !! !!
DISCLAIMER #1: TEKSERVE – NYC’S largest independent APPLE STORE & REPAIR SHOP – (as in Mac !!) – is a proud long time sponsor of this site – but the views expressed on this site – are (always) clearly our own !!
DISCLAIMER #2: NANCY SMITH – the editor of this site and – the author of this post – was a paid employee of JOSH HARRIS/PSEUDO.COM – the subject of the film – ‘WE LIVE IN PUBLIC – at the time the filming took place (1999-2000).
DISCLAIMER #3: NANCY SMITH – the editor of this site and – the author of this post – also appears in the film – ‘We Live In Public’ – as a participant. I was a founding crew member – of the ‘QUIET’ MILLENNIUM BUNKER ART PARTY – and part of the in-house production team – and, ok ok – – I’m the crew member who – surprise surprise – !! – got into a fight and kicked out !! I also got ‘a last word cameo’ (another surprise, NOT !!) at the end of the film – when Ondi came back for a follow-up, several years later !!
I’m the one in the black hoodie – who says: “Josh has set sail on the sea for places unknown but far away’ – without really knowing why – but I was right. (surprise. surprise. duh.)
ok .. I even made the trailer !! towards the end, well after mid-point – I’m the one – in the green-and-yellow puffy North Face jacket !! having a (teary) fit !!
yep – that’s me. JERSEY SHORE – ‘SNOOKUMS’ – move ov-er !!
you can find the trailer – right there on the home page: WE LIVE IN PUBLIC – official website – !!
(watch out for ALFREDO’S SHOOTING GALLERY !!)
here’s another trailer – it might be the original – uncut & uncensored – rowdy !! one: because – oops – looks like its been censured for content – on YouTube !! LOL !!
if so … it was first posted by Josh Harris on RADARONLINE – before they re-booted – as whatever the hell – a babyfood celeb sheet ? – they are now.
but, it might just be the official one – censured ?? dunno. I gotta find my (adult) google password !! yikes.
in fact, here’s another really cool clip: “ONDI TIMONER/MEET THE ARTISTS”/WE LIVE IN PUBLIC/YouTube !!
the guy naked in the see-thru communal shower ? JOSH HARRIS, of course !!
the next frame – the woman – with the rosy aura – in the bunker with her young son – yo, that’s me !! it was the bunker built for the 100+ live-in artists at ‘QUIET’ – and it was wired with multiple cameras – pointing in all directions for 24/7 surveillance & each ‘pod’ had ‘live’ feed/real time screens. JEFF GOMPERTZ designed and built the ‘Japanese’-based pod hotel bunker. OWEN BUSH designed and built that (gorgeous !!) ‘bubble wrap’ communal dining room.
don’t believe me ?
