Snooze Button

 Things may get a little slow around this site for it bit.

It's nothing bad.  No, not at all.

I'm just in need a break from all the "media".  Social or otherwise.

If Elmwood has something coming up it'll be here...  And the puppets will return by spring.  And Elmwood is working...  Just wait for the weird and awesome shit we've got coming your way.

A re-birth is happening. 


Let's call this hibernation.  I'm a little burnt out. And a little ready for getting weird.


Wanna get weird?  You know how to find me.

Time...

This is not Bernice.

This is very late Friday nite. Or very early Saturday morning.
Depends on how you look at time.
Time.
Time has been weird since 2020.
Days and nites sometimes blur and jumble.
Moments like this are the monuments that re-set the clocks. Re-set the soul.

I kinda have a life...

I was looking back at my posts since 2020...  Mostly been all Elmwood related.  And I love it.
But believe it or not I actually have a tiny little bit of a life outside of it...
And here's some pics to prove it.  
Just some peeks at 2020, 2021, 2022... No order, no context.
Plenty of stuff missed...  But this post is for me, mostly pics that make me laugh.

The Elmwood People

This is not Bernice.
I bet you're still wondering "Who is Bernice?"

As we wrap up the year I want to say thank you to everyone who has supported us the past 20 years... All the family, friends, fans, and more... Thank you. Thank you for everything.
And thank you to the folks in this picture. The Elmwood Productions class of 2022.
We made "Bernice, Too" happen... And we keep making more!

Enjoy this last day of 2022. Hope yours was as good as mine, or even better.
2023 - Here we come!

Left to Right:  Rick Corbo, Alex Sims, Rick Alan, Jess Rawling, Tina Mislivets, Rich Mislivets, Keith Paul, John Fulcher, Nicki LaPorte, Mike Finland, Pete "Tricky" Lucco, Rick Passmore, Jon Bristol. 


And here's a little something special to wrap up the year.
When we had our premiere screening of "Bernice, Too" back in February there was pre-show video that ran on the screen in the theatre while we were having the pre-show cocktail hour, and people were coming in. Some folks made it to seats and relaxed and got to see the video. Others hung out in the lobby until showtime. The video was a "slideshow" of pictures celebrating 20/21 years of Elmwood Productions.
Enjoy!

Writing The Future Has Begun...

THIS IS NOT BERNICE.

Here it is...
"Writing the Future" from Snap Famous and the "Bernice, Too" Soundtrack -


When my buddy Ricky told me he had the perfect song to end the movie with last year I can't lie; I was skeptical. Then he played it for me in my office one afternoon. And I can't lie again; I choked up.
This song was and is the perfect end credits song to the flick. And it was the perfect end credits song to all the bullshit I had been going through for a year or so... And it was even more so the perfect end credits song for the 20th anniversary of Elmwood Productions.

I believe Ricky knew all of this as he played me the song. 
Thank you, Ricky. You get it.

We saved this music video for last. Because it is the last song in the movie. Because it is the best way to wrap up 20 years of Elmwood. And an amazing way to wrap up 2022 all around.

"YOU CAN'T STOP US. YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND... 

IT'S ALL SAID AND DONE, UNTIL WE MEET AGAIN."
