I can't really talk about it much right now until some papers get signed and stuff, but I know a lot of you guys are super big pro wrestling fans. Can you do me a solid and help me out? I'm doing some research for a project I'm going to be working on. PM me if you have a few minutes and are willing to answer some questions.

Thanks dudes.

Also, while European women aren't usually fat, most smoke, which is a huge turnoff for me personally. But really, what the fuck...it's just a one night stand anyways, so who cares at that point.

uh, sure, sometimes. It's not with a southern accent though, if you're picturing a real country hoe-down drawn out slurred thing.

No, I'm just surprised it's used at all in New York.

I think at this point it's probably used just about everywhere, but also, I grew up in Indiana. I think I actually starting saying it when I worked as a waiter because it made me seem more, I dunno, down-to-earth or whatever like all the people I was serving

I hated the word y'all growing up but now I live in VA so I throw it into my vocabulary as well as other southern phrases for a facade that makes southern people like me more. Which works since I make tip money.

I don't know how much I can say, but my part in it is done, besides maybe some eventual promotion and maaaaaybe some reshoots/additional footage if that comes up. The production company has another big release in the pipeline before this, last I heard that one was done and ready to be viewed before christmas and we've just been playing phone tag since, so I'm not absolutely sure what's going on.

But it's not dead, it's just... taking a while.

Oh also funny enough, I picked up saying y'all while I was waiting tables too, because it made me seem more folksy I guess, and relatable. That wasn't the south though, but Indiana is basically the south, it's just that no one ever told them they weren't.

So funny enough I just got a call about this and I'll have some news about it next Friday. Granted, the news is probably going to be "They're still working on it and it'll be done when it's done" but there ya go.

The one before it is very nearly finished with a theatrical release date for... sometime in July I think. The 12th maybe. I just shot a few scenes as a camera operator for that one though.

Okay so yeah. 350 Days will be coming to a theater near you (probably) on July 12th for one night. I think they said a couple hundred theaters, so probably most major cities-- I'll have a list when they get a list. No word yet on where it'll go after that, I believe they're going to use that night to decide where to distribute for home viewing.

It's a documentary with interviews and stories from professional wrestlers in the 70's and 80's about the 350 days (or more) a year a professional wrestler had to be on the road. I was cinematographer for several interviews and events for this movie, basically anything that was in the northeast area (none of the south or west coast stuff).

Fun fact: I am credited in this movie as Alex Graves. No one knows why. It may or may not be fixed by the time it gets released! But probably will be.

After that, another movie with this company, that I directed, will be finished and released, and I'll tell you more about that when I can. They basically put everything else on hold to get 350 days ready for theatrical release, and then they'll go back to the other movie. I haven't seen a cut of 350 days yet (maybe this weekend) but everyone who has seen it has had high praise. So if that's your kind of thing, you won't be disappointed, and if it's not your kind of thing you might enjoy it anyway. There are definitely some good stories and insight in there.

I was barely born in the south and I use y'all in everyday speech. It's an accidental gap; "You guys" or "yinz" sound awful, there's not a better replacement for "y'all".

This isn't the movie we discussed Alex. Are you still doing the other one, or did it become part of this one?

That's the one I said is coming after 350 days. I'm done with it, they just need to finish the editing, which got put on hold to finish three fifty. After three fifty is released they'll get back to it, it's definitely still coming out.

Who the hell says "yinz"? What is that even derived from?
