Exclusive: 'My Name is Earl' Creator Greg Garcia Leaves Behind a Real Piece of Inspiration for 'The Guest Book'

Exclusive: 'My Name is Earl' Creator Greg Garcia Leaves Behind a Real Piece of Inspiration for 'The Guest Book'
Greg Garcia is back at it -- this time with The Guest Book, an anthology series centered around a cabin in the woods that different guests visit each week. Though the guest stars (like Jaime Pressly, Jenna Fischer and Michael Rapaport) are consistently hilarious, the story lines only seem to get more outrageous -- a testament to Garcia's incredible imagination and guts to actually write these stories in real guest books in cabins around the country.

Each episode of the 10-part TBS series is based on a real story that Garcia wrote as a way to cure his writer's block while working on My Name Is Earl -- and left to "freak out the next guest." Here, Garcia includes and excerpt from "Entry Eleven," a real story he left behind in a guest book on vacation.

Britannias Beat the Drum for British and American Academy Awards

How do you get someone to schlep to Los Angeles, decked out in black tie, to accept an awards tribute? You grab them when they have something to promote—and a studio willing to support costs of video, travel, styling and table.

This year’s British Academy Britannia Awards were enjoyably hosted by Brit comedian Ben “Doc” Brown Smith, who raps well enough to audition for “Hamilton” and was eager to raise his stateside profile.

The winner of the night’s big prize, the Albert R. Broccoli Award for Worldwide Contribution to Entertainment, Samuel L. Jackson, is an awards perennial, with directors Quentin Tarantino and Spike Lee happy to sing his praises on the Tribute video. This year, he was promoting Warner Bros.’ “Kong: Skull Island,” which was why his elegant costar and recent Best Actress Oscar-winner Brie Larson did the presenting honors.

Locarno: How Modern Portuguese Cinema Is Uniting the Past and the Present

This article was produced as part of the Locarno Critics Academy, a workshop for aspiring journalists at the Locarno Film Festival, a collaboration between the Locarno Film Festival, IndieWire and the Film Society of Lincoln Center with the support of Film Comment and the Swiss Alliance of Film Journalists.

Audiences at the 2016 Locarno Film Festival got used to hearing a familiar statement: “I just saw a Portuguese film.” They were hard to ignore. Fourteen films of some 200 in the lineup were directed or produced by Portuguese people and were distributed across different sections of the festivals. Viewed together, they have a lot to say about the state of a country’s cinema and its ability to wrestle with broad historical concerns.

These included the so-called “blasphemous” biopic of a Lisbon patron saint in João Pedro Rodrigues’ “The Ornithologist” and “Correspondences,” directed by Rita Azevedo Gomes, which focuses on a letter

“In France, young people get hell from the government who tells them to stop dreaming, to be more grounded.” – Axelle Ropert

During the conference following the press screening of her third feature film, “The Apple of My Eye” — which was competing for the Golden Leopard at the 69th Locarno International Film FestivalAxelle Ropert said that she “absolutely” wanted to depict today’s European youth in her new film. That will come as a surprise to those who have followed Ropert’s work as a screenwriter, director and film critic known for her disinterest in films that deal with modern-day concerns.

La fièvre monte à El Pao

Luis Buñuel's most direct film about revolutionary politics brandishes few if any surreal touches in its clash between French star Gérard Philipe and the Mexican legend María Félix. Borrowing the climax of the opera Tosca, it's an intelligent study of how not to effect change in a corrupt political regime. La fièvre monte à El Pao Region A+B Blu-ray + Pal DVD Pathé (Fr) 1959 / B&W / 1:37 flat (should be 1:66 widescreen) / 96 min. / Los Ambiciosos; "Fever Mounts at El Pao" / Street Date December 4, 2013 / available at Amazon France / Eur 26,27 Starring Gérard Philipe, María Félix, Jean Servais, M.A. Soler, Raúl Dantés, Domingo Soler, Víctor Junco, Roberto Cañedo, Enrique Lucero, Pilar Pellicer, David Reynoso, Andrés Soler.

Readers recommend: songs about trash | Peter Kimpton

Rubbish? Garbage? Litter? Landfill or recycled, tip out your music collections to find throwaway treasures that may refer to objects, talk, situations or feelings

“One man’s trash is another man’s treasure,” said Hector Urquhart in his introduction to Popular Tales of the West Highlands (1860). Was he talking a load of rubbish? Well, his words actually pertained to fairy eggs – floating seashore objects – and also stories themselves, seen as dubious by some, and magical by others. But the phrase could easily have come from the extremely eccentric man who lives down my street. He resembles Ben Gunn from Treasure Island, his ragged trousers hanging off his backside. He regularly wheels a creaking old bicycle that pulls a trolley, and almost every day fetches and fills his house with unwanted old fridges, washing machines, and a host of hoarded bric-a-brac. Rumour has it he’s got a double-first from Oxford,

‘White Trash’ Review (Titan Comics)

  • Nerdly
Written by Gordon Rennie | Art by Martin Edmond | Published by Titan Comics | Format: Hardback, 128pp

White Trash was originally published way back in 1991 in Blast! Magazine, and you can probably guess the level of cult status it has by the fact that both Tundra and Heavy Metal have had a bash at publishing it also, before Titan Comics have come along and published this new 128 page collection.

White Trash was one of Gordon Rennie’s first ever published scripts, way before his successful time on 2000Ad and Judge Dredd, and was the strip that launched Martin Emond. The art style and anarchic nature almost certainly got him his gigs on the Lobo comics he did at DC.

White Trash is a difficult comic to describe, but ‘anarchic’ is the one phrase that keeps springing to mind. You could either view it as wonderful, over-the-top humour, poking fun at the U.

Mark McGrath Is Still Alive: I Had Nothing to do With Lame Death Hoax
Despite online rumors to the contrary, Mark McGrath is still alive.

A fake press release circulated online Thursday, claiming that that the 46-year-old Sugar Ray frontman and TV personality had been fatally shot by a masked gunman on the Hollywood set of Adult Swim show Hot Package.

"In honor of Mr. McGrath's legacy, his team is asking in liu [sic] of flowers, fans post a Sugar Ray Selfie, holding a packet of sugar over their heart. #Ripmarkmcgrath," the press release asked.

The singer quickly cleared things up on Twitter, posting a video of the Edgar Winter & White Trash song "Still Alive and Well."

New on Video: ‘L’Avventura’

L’Avventura

Written by Michelangelo Antonioni, Elio Bartolini, and Tonino Guerra

Directed by Michelangelo Antonioni

Italy, 1960

Michelangelo Antonioni’s enigmatic and brilliant L’Avventura is one of the benchmarks for international art cinema, a somewhat disputable designation that was, nevertheless, very much in vogue at the time of its release. Take the 1960 Cannes Film Festival for example, where L’Avventura debuted to one of the event’s most divisive responses, with initially more boos than cheers greeting this affront to conventional film narrative and form. Yet, this was also the year of Fellini’s La Dolce Vita (the Palme d’Or winner), Chukhray’s Ballad of a Soldier, Bergman’s The Virgin Spring, Kalatozov’s Letter Never Sent, and Buñuel’s The Young One, to name just a few of the other titles at the festival, where, ultimately, L’Avventura came away with the Jury Prize (shared with Ichikawa’s

Desire Without Language

  • MUBI
4. Desire Without Language

Weekend 3 - Jan.24-26th

The fourth chapter of the Harvard-Gulbenkian program stages a unique extended dialogue between Manuela Viegas and Lucrecia Martel, two artists who share a similar ambition to dramatically renew the potential of the cinema as an audio-visual and uniquely sensorial medium. Unseating the long-standing hierarchy of the visual in the cinema, the films of Viegas and Martel are intensely tactile and audio-visual, enriched by complex soundscapes that awaken the invisible, immeasurable space beyond the frame, animating and decentering the dynamically abstract mise-en-scene favored by both filmmakers. Despite their relatively small respective oeuvres—to date Martel has completed three features, Viegas just one—their every film is career defining and milestone. Indeed, with each work Viegas and Martel define a new paradigm of narrative cinema, a different means of reaching far beyond mere representation and story to open the all too often untapped phenomenological
