Did I really tell my husband last night, “undercrank studies are my love language”? Covid times and weed are a trip. 🤣@silentfilmmusic

Directors in the past 5 decades have tried their hands at silent movie-making, with some success. And yet their successes have not led to more silent movie-making. Some musings on why in this post. #silentfilm

@silentfilmmusic remarkably, my kid asked me what (read: who worth watching) was on today's program. I told him it's rewind day, screening a comedy short he viewed so often 14 yrs ago I myself nearly lost interest. He's keen to view it.

Congrats and thanks to the Syracuse Wurlitzer and ESTMIM people and to all who came to yesterday’s screening of “The Cat and the Canary”! It was a treat and an honor to get to play their 3/11 Wurli which they’ve kept in excellent shape. #silentfilm

My thoughts on why Count Orlok, Dr. Caligari, Erik the Phantom et al get more silent film screenings at Halloween time than “The Cat and the Canary”. Come see C&C Sun Oct 10 in Syracuse w/me at the Wurlitzer! #silentfilm #HorrorMovies
