Mike’s Amazing MySpace LOUIE LOUIE List

My friend Mike Hintze assembled an incredible list of MySpace pages that feature a version of LOUIE LOUIE!

OK, here’s a little LL Day present for you all. Over the past several months, I’ve managed to find a whole bunch of new LL versions from bands’ MySpace pages. Here are the links for those pages […]

LOUIE LOUIE community on Facebook

For those of you that are using the Facebook social network, there’s now two new places where a LOUIE LOUIE suporter can visit – the LOUIE LOUIE Party, and the Richard Berry Facebook page.

Obviously, Richard Berry is not a participant on Facebook, as he passed away in 1997, but this is a […]

E.P.’s 100th YouTube clip

Anyone that knows me knows I’ve been shooting video for many years. I’ve shot a lot of footage of a lot of different entertainers – musicians, poets, comedians, and friends.

Certainly not everything is related to my big LOUIE project.

While video production is my livelihood that provides me an occasional paycheck, I do create […]

Kronic Mind in 1983- LOUIE of the Week

To start off the new year with a bang, I’ve decided to release some rare footage from my archives.

Exactly two weeks before the infamous Maximum: LOUIE LOUIE marathon at KFJC and long before I ever dreamed about researching this song for an epic documentary, I borrowed some video equipment to shoot a little […]

Pat Mason shares a little story

I’ve been sorting through a lot of videotapes, as I continue to work on this big documentary of mine. If it’s not one thing, it’s another thing that distracts me from the task of making faster progress with the editorial process. Hi8mm videotape, which was the primary format for production of this project during the […]

I’ve been BOOT-LEGGED! (reasons for annoying credits over video)

I suppose it should be considered a form of flattery when someone borrows someone else’s material for their own creation. It looks like I’ve been bootlegged! Here’s my footage of Richard Berry in Mountain View from 1989, recycled by someone else on YouTube.

This looks like some kind of TV show from Asturias, which […]

Working the “internets” – social networking with E.P.

Figuring out how to best utilize the internet, as the internet figures out how to figure itself out, is a very interesting concept to explore. It’s still the “wild west” on various levels out in cyberspace; still a very young frontier, open for the visionaries to develop. While many companies have established what seem to […]

Beware of disappearing YouTube clips

From the very first time I discovered YouTube, I wondered how long it would take before the major copyright owners would make some serious noise to stop the unauthorized distribution of their video programming. From what I could see, at least 50% of the material didn’t come directly from actual filmmakers, but collectors that just […]

My cruddy cartoons used for another video contest

It was about a month ago that I posted some cartoons I drew for a LOUIE LOUIE Video Contest. As you might have read, the contest deadline was extended until April 11, 2008, allowing folks a better opportunity to create an award-winning entry. I’m hoping to be bombarded with a whole of music videos […]

Update on E.P.’s Hard Drive Disaster

Ten days ago, I wrote about a terrible hard drive crash. Approximately 500 GB of data was potentially lost forever, as this was one particular hard drive I did not get around to backing up. By plugging in the wrong cord, I thought I destroyed my hard drive, and all the information on it.

It […]
