The Temple

Hey Guys!

I want you to be the first to get a crack at watching this new motion comic I was involved with called THE TEMPLE. The Temple was written by my awesome pal Alex Greenfield and Michael Eitelman. These guys brought this full length feature to life in an amazing 4 months! (For those of you that are unfamiliar with animation production times, an 11 min episode of a TV show my girlfriend works on takes a full YEAR to make.) This project was underwritten by Amazon Studios.

The Temple is not intended for viewers under 18 due to coarse language and extreme violence.

I play the character Derek, a Lieutenant with a US special ops. unit deployed in the no-man’s land between Afghanistan and Pakistan.

Here is the link to watch the full length feature:


All Things Possible,

    Wow, it is STILL quiet, right Tanya?:)Since I was finally checking around on Internet tonight, thought I'd stop by and say, I think I may have actually downloaded the movie. I'll let you know! Happy weekend and Happy Valentine's Day to all...Sue

    I'm checkin' in--but only having access to one of these contraptions at work, I cain't much be viewing entire movies er such without raising employer hackles....and as for chiming in on Awards Night stuff--I'm fairly useless there, too(I like what I like and it usually ain't what the critics like!). But if the subjects of critters, injuns, or the woods come up, I'll wear my right index finger to a nub again!...L.B.

    Lane, I saw your note on my phone earlier. Know what you mean about not being able to keep up with stuff in the entertainment world:). Well, here's some critter talk. Hope all's well in the woods! Since you're an animal advocate, perhaps you can tell us about Lion Country Safari in FL. My husband's dad wants to go there when we visit. We enjoyed the animal park near our daughter when visiting CA with my parents in 2000. Wow, that was before GOTJ2! If I'd known then, that I'd be following the career of the star of that movie....well, what can I say!:) OK, time to wear your finger to the nub again! ATB/P...Sue

    I've never been to Florida's Lion Country Safari(actually, I've never been to Florida at all!), but I haven't heard any bad things about it. Some of our employees here at the N. C. Zoo used to work there, and it sounds like a neat place(as any type of zoo goes). That's it about zoos(or ANYTHING!)--there's good and bad--and combinations of both in the same zoo. If you visit a zoo and don't like/approve of something, DO COMPLAIN! That's the only way things will ever improve in some cases--public pressure. I encourage people at my zoo to complain all the time! We have a comment box at our visitor center for just such feedback. And though(through gritted teeth, sometimes...) I MUST TRY and be polite with visitors at my job(or git fired!), when correcting or dissuading them from various activities, HEAVEN HELP the visitors misbehaving at another zoo where I am also a visitor!!!! If I see anyone throwing rocks, spitting on animals, any form of teasing or other selfish, abusive behaviour(and all zookeepers NUMERO UNO pet peeve--banging on the glass of exhibits!) I will REAM them, using and even inventing foul vocabulary I cannot utilize in my workplace! A lot of people are suprised visitors do stuff like that, but sadly, it is NOT uncommon! When that tradgedy in San Francisco happened(tiger got out and mauled and killed people and had to be shot--after it was teased and taunted to distraction) I was conversing on the computer with a friend in California who asked me if we had visitors abusing/teasing animals like that ever--WHILE I WAS RESPONDING to her question, some people were yelling and screaming and pounding on the glass of our cougar exhibit, and I had to go out and stop them! Sheesh!....L.B.

  • At 6:50 AM, February 12, 2012 , Anonymous Anonymous said... when you go to Lion Country Safari, keep your eyes out for troublesome primates(and I don't mean the inmates at the zoo, either!). As I think most of that zoo is a drive-thru, it might be hard to reprimand them, but you could RAM them with your vehicle! On the opposite side of the spectrum, we also get the "humaniac" types who HATE all zoos, and enjoy telling us so, and how they think all zoos should be eliminated(I always wonder, if they think that, WHY are they patronizing a zoo as a visitor in the first place?)--I always shock such people by AGREEING with them! And I use a quote from Voltaire's "Candide"--"In the best of all possible worlds", there would be no need for zoos! But alas, it is NOT the best of all possible worlds, and zoos ARE needed to give people a connection with animals and the "wild" they would never have otherwise, to help save endangered species(quite a few of which have been saved by captive breeding in the better zoos), and to rescue individual animals(from exotic pet trade fiascos gone wrong; orphaned and injured and unreleasable back to the wild individuals, etc.) that would have no life at all except for zoos. Zoo life ISN'T perfect(what lifestyle for any of us is?), but the better zoos provide a purty cush life for a lot of critters. I remind people, too, that most modern Western humans live a lifestyle VERY LIKE a zoo animal--not much freedom to roam at will at all! And TOO MUCH FOOD and not enough excercise!!! Ha! How's that fer changing the subject!!! But let us know how Lion Country goes if/when you visit. What Animal Park did you visit when you were in California, Sue? Was it the magnificent San Diego Wild Animal Park?....L.B.

    ....and maybe to try(?) and tie this in with the subjects posted this month....(okay, it's gonna be a stretch)--as I mentioned a quote from Voltaire's "Candide"--WHY WHY WHY hasn't a HILARIOUS film been done with that incredibly funny, satirical, irreverant, ribald tale, every bit as appropriate for today as it was when it was written in the 1700's! No one could help but relate-still-to the satire on religion, politics, war, and the wisdom of just "tending your garden"! Advice I have followed ever since I read it, way back during my incarceration in college(I took a "French Liturature" course because it was rumored to be an "easy A"--it was, but I also ended up really enjoying it!)--although my "garden" constitutes tending my many dogs, and now 5 ferrets! And likely some goats, sheep and chickens again one day.....Anyway, this story has been made into a play, but why someone hasn't JUMPED at the chance to make a superb film(or ADULT animated feature) out of it, I don't know! Such great characters--the naive but irrepressable Candide, the fair Cunegonde, the old woman with one buttock, and the very annoying Dr. Pangloss--it couldn't help but be a hit! Hint, hint.....L.B.

    ....And the more I think about it, Chris would actually be PERFECT in the role of "Candide"--who is a very GOTJ-like character!!!!!

    A big thank you, Lane, for taking time to write all that, and wearing your fingers to the nubs again! Really appreciate your perspective on animals and how we interact with them. I'm taking all this to heart, including Candide! Which I do have somewhere among my college French textbooks and should see if I can get into it. Wow, that WOULD be an interesting CS movie! Valentine
    Blessings to everyone! Sue
    PS...I'll report back on our visit. Oh, and the CA one was at Escondido. Maybe Chris can tell us the name. I have yet to get to the famed San Diego Zoo, alas....
