The Immortal Augustus Gladstone Everything



Hi loyal tinselman readers (and members of the Republic)! I've been talking about it for awhile and now it's here... or virtually here! The Immortal Augustus Gladstone will be released, for your viewing pleasure, before Christmas! Because afterall, Augustus was born on Christmas... he wouldn't have wanted to miss the holiday!

Above is our latest trailer featuring the music of VAST! We call the trailer "Searching For Blood".

More news... our film is being released and presented by our favorite blog Boing Boing. Its initial release will be exclusively available only from their site! But you can can pre-order the movie now as a DRM-free download!

We'll be partnering with Boing Boing to bring you tons of fun stuff. Like contests, interviews with collaborators, related short films, and more... like the following first episode of "Augustus Speaks", created from footage we didn't use in the film..

Visit our channel at YouTube or Vimeo to subscribe.

You can also now pre-order the official soundtrack to the film - the first soundtrack I've written since Riven. Or maybe just listen to a few tracks...

Soundtrack is available here. It will be released Dec. 13th (just a few days from now).

You can find all this and more at our new website, here.

Augustus needs your help! (So do we.) Please help spread the word! Thanks!

Space Patrol - The Hairy Men of Mars


Space Patrol was a sci-fi show from the early 60's written and produced by Roberta Leigh. I have no idea if it was popular or a dud.

In this episode? The Space Patrol crew discover a curious race of hairy martians and a martian hair-growing fruit. How convenient! Because one of the characters is bald!

Dreams of a Future Moon

The above is an artist's conception (1969) of how, according to National Geographic, "man may one day colonize his newest frontier." Wouldn't it have been nice?! Answer: yes.

Dreams of Space, one of my favorite blogs, just published the above illustration and the School Bulliten that goes along with it. Total eye candy.

Close Friends With a Count

For the past month, I've been composing the soundtrack for The Immortal Augustus Gladstone. A few days ago, I shared the above piece, Close Friends with a Count, on twitter.

We've been pretty quiet about the film but we're now almost finished with the entire project. Which feels good!

Let me know if you have questions... about the film, about the music, about whatever you like (within reason of course). I'll answer whatever I can!

This is Not a Room

I recommend taking a look at more of Nishi's weirdly displaced rooms... they're all equally fascinating.

Nixon... Confused and Mourning

How delightful! A confused Nixon... talking to Spiro Agnew. Or below, Nixon (rapidly) mourns the death of the Hulk.
