    Daniel Genis -- out of the slammer and headed for fame.

    in Books

    NYU graduiate and publishing wunderkind Daniel Genis had a bright future behind him when they carted him off to prison for serial mugging and consisten stupidity. Hey, he became addicted to Heroin -- that famed wonder drug originally promoted as a non-habit forming treatment for cough and diareah now known as exceptionally addicting -- but you don't caugh, and you can't poop no matter how hard you try.  


    A devout athiest who doesn't keep Kosher, Daniel is now ruling the universe of expert commentary. When ever the media wants 60 seconds of authoratative, concise insights from a devout athiest who doesn't keep kosher, who do you think they call?  Guess again. They call Daniel Genis


    When a German magazine wants to kiss and make up for all that stuff on the History Channel, who do they have write their cover story? No, wrong again -- it's Daniel Genis


    When legendary broadcaster and Edgar Award winning author Burl Barer wants to share time and space with a vastly amusing literary co-hort with a marked affinity for ITC television productions from the 1960's, who does he call? No, wrong again -- it's Daniel Genis.


    Listen now as Burl politely grills Daniel like a swordfish.  (Ed note: while this statement is grammatically incorrect, and should be written as "grills Daniel as if Daniel were a swordfish," the idiomatic humor is lost in the oppression of gramatical correctness)

    Worldwide Plaza Public Space and Shops - College Info

    in Travel

    Hello,


    Welcome to A Theory of Parenting on Blogtalkradio.com


    My name is Tammi Joyner


    I am your Host for the Show


    Today we are live from 825 8th ave between 49th and  West 50th Street, Two Worldwide Plaza is a post-war skyscraper.  The 39-floor building in Midtown West was completed by William Zeckendorf Jr. in 1989. Today, it is part of a three-building design that stretches an entire block between 8th and 9th Avenue from 49th to 50th Street.


    The building's postmodern exterior is perhaps one of the most remarkable building features. The old-fashioned brick is modernized by a copper roof and glass pyramid at the top. At certain times of the day, the sun hits the sleek rows of windows to the point that the facade shines like metal. Terraces abound in the majority of the 455 apartments, each equipped with granite countertops in modern kitchens, marble baths, and 11-foot ceilings.


    The interior garden courtyard reserved for residents is matched with the mid-block public plaza housing a diverse array of greenery as well a fountain with elaborate statues, and a nearby cafe.

    Shriekfest Radio! Denise Gossett interviews filmmaker Brian Belefant!

    in Paranormal

    A long time ago, I was a copywriter.  I was at Scali McCabe Sloves, Chiat/Day, Stein Robaire Helm, Borders Perrin & Norrander, and BBDO, along with a couple of other companies that I thought were ad agencies because of the creative way they were named after people, but that turned out to be accounting firms or something. Somebody told me that you couldn't be a director unless you went to school for it, so I took a bunch of film classes at UCLA, NYU, and SVA, and even though some people might tell you otherwise, I managed to learn stuff. Then I started asking people to hire me to direct their commercials and some of them did.It's been about twenty years now, of me wearing a hat, wandering around on the set, and saying "cut" without getting into any trouble. I must be really good at it, too, because sometimes people ask me to do it over and over and not because I got it wrong and they want me to try again until I get it right. I even got a bunch of certificates and trophies and stuff -- including a really ugly hood ornament from the London International Advertising Awards.  And not just for commercials. I sometimes get to direct films -- which are just like commercials only they're longer and there's more talking and sometimes naked people in them -- and documentaries, which are just like commercials only the people you point the camera at usually know even less about how to make the film go than I do. 


    Brian won Best Horror Comedy short film in Shriekfest 2002 and had a screenplay finalist in 2002 as well with his script "The Lakeside Slasher".
