Wacky But True; or, Another Damn Ray Carney Thread

“just get the hell out and go into accounting. "

That what you do for a living?

BTW- I was not bragging. I was trying to clarify a point to you. That I already work in “the film world” as you so called it.

“patzo”???? How old are you? Maybe you do not work for a living yet. If so then sorry. Because if you already worked for a living you would know that If you get paid to do something it is a business. Sometimes I have worked Pro Bono, though.
PS-
Ever drop by the Bronx? I go there couple times a year. If you are wiling we can meet near PS 223 and settle this for good. Because in the internet you can sound so hard boiled I wonder if you have ever walked the walk.
I have done so plenty of times, even against the PRPD riot squad. And they stood back.

Sorry again. I did lost it there.That kind of language and behaviour is fascist
And as I told a girl during my industrial stage “I may dress like a fascist but I am not one”

comments weren’t so bad. at least in respect to my final one i was trying to make a joke of it.

as far as apologizing to a web site. that’s not really my bag..but if i offended someones livlihood i apologize for that. wasn’t my initial intention believe it or not…

my feelings about the industry itself a …and the impersonal nature of much of the film world are not something i’ve not expressed over the years to sometimes to my own detriment..not that it’s that important because since you ask…i’m a nobody in it..which is more than fine by me…whether you’d believe that or not.

but in keeping with that theme…of being personal…or impersonal..whatever… i was just frankly a little upset that again people felt the neccessity after a couple of mostly harmless posts between old friends on the thread to take the piss. actually i think that sucks quite a bit and was pretty damn unneccesary. i’ve been trying to lay low here and not chime in to many of the forums and simply post on off topic forums things i love and care about..because i’ve kind of gathered i’m sort of unpopular regarding other comments and opinions i’ve expressed eleswhere. anyway one man’s decorum is another man’s censorship. i won’t be posting anymore. i’ll delete my account. consider it a win all around. at least from my perspective just really happy to have heard from an old friend

I agree with the general thoughts of this thread. He’s not a very reasonable critic.

However, he does have a lot of knowledge about American independent cinema since its early years, which is a topic that is very interesting to me though it is seldom talked or written about. His recommendations page has some pretty good films which perhaps I wouldn’t have heard about otherwise.

Slightly off topic, does anyone have any early (60s or earlier) American independent cinema recommendations or resources? I’m fascinated by this era.
