Finally watched Morbius

Finally watched Morbius and the moment Jared Leto opened his mouth, I immediately thought, “This would be lot better if Keith Richards played Morbius.” A few minutes later, Matt Smith showed up, got the youth jizz and started acting like Mick Jagger, so I know I was on to something. I’m sure Sony will make it if enough people talk about it because they have a track record of misreading data — smile

The Story Behind My Logo

This is an image that has been associated with me or characters I’ve played for the bulk of my career. It’s a still from the first film I produced, Death Fish, which was shot in August, 1997. One of writer/director Carlos Sanchez Lopez‘s influences was Sergio Leone, especially the film A Fistful of Dollars:

Still of Clint Eastwood from A Fistful of Dollars

When I was a kid, A Fistful of Dollars was on television a lot because westerns were still popular and Clint Eastwood was at the height of his superstardom in the 1970‘s.

The Next Freakin’ Thing

Today finally sees the launch of my first line of Digital Collectibles. It will be a series of non-interactive NFTs providing access to original art, photos, videos and other forms of media created by me. A lot of it wil be previously unreleased material from my archives, but I will also be creating new content as well.

The NFTs will be hosted on the WAX blockchain. I chose the WAX blockchain for its reduced environmental impact. You can get the NFTs at the Atomic Hub Marketplace; my collection is called smileartwork.

Rather than flooding the market, I will be minting the NFTs to meet demand in order to minimize resource use. Each NFT will have a rarity level based on how many are made available. Initial pricing for the NFTs will vary based on subjective quality and rarity. The Rarity Levels are:

Check out my new podcast

It’s been a couple of weeks since I’ve posted anything because I have been prepping my new podcast. #smileSays is now available on the following podcast platforms:

Subscribe now so you won’t miss a thing. I was originally going to host the podcast here, but decided to let Anchor host and syndicate it in the hope of generating revenue through donations or integrated advertising. There was more that went into the decision than that, but I’ll digress for now. I’m going to see if I can embed the episodes on the site as well. The player featuring the latest episode should load here:

If it doesn’t load, or you want to listen to an older episode, you can check out individual episodes in the meantime by checking the sidebar on a desktop or scrolling further down on mobile. I’ll get it to work eventually.

Spread the word and leave me a voice message with some feedback if it moves you.
