How d'ya like our new web site? I've revised this site
many times since it first went live in 1997, and this latest update is
to add a brand new feature--the David Kalat Blog (see the front page),
a place where I can shove my shambolic ramblings and incoherent
Also, keep an eye on the "Other Projects" tab to the left,
because I've been doing some fun things with other media
companies. Some of these projects need to stay under wraps until
they are farther along, but I'll post updates as they become relevant.
GO GO GODZILLA!
HAVE WE LOST OUR EVER-LOVIN' MINDS?
Just take a gander at the DVD Catalog (see link at
left). Yes, those prices are real. I'm not kidding.
Stock up now for the holidays, while supplies last!
KEEP WATCHING THE SKIES!
OK, I don't really mean that. I just like the
quote. But do keep watching Kino's
the latest news about their on-going Buster Keaton releases.
out so far is beyond excellent and must-have. There's
more coming. Bookmark this, check often.
DO YOU HAVE YOURS YET?
And then, they went and placed the METROPOLIS release on their Top 100 List and named it an "Essential DVD."
So... I'm hoping I get a trophy! I want a big gold statue (of the robot Maria?) to put on my mantle!
Congrats to everybody at Masters of Cinema--way to go!
