The Twisted Twins, Jen and Sylvia Soska, along with CJ Wallis, of FortyFPS Productions, were invited onto Shameless, hosted by Jonathon Brown, on CiTR 101.9fm yesterday for a live two hour interview. We talked about projects- DEAD HOOKER IN A TRUNK, TARANTINO'S BASTERDS, THE HORNET, and AMERICAN MARY. the MTV Tarantino Contest, Eli Roth, Ax Wound, and a million other things (many random).
But I digress, much like in the interview. A very lovely candid interview that can be heard here.
See the official site for the talented Jonathon Brown and full interview (with musical selections) here.

The Scotiabank Theatre in downtown Vancouver had a special secret advance screening of "Inglourious Basterds" with special guest, director and Bear Jew, Eli Roth. The event was put on by CFOX and ROCK 101 and we'd like to give Mike Cohen a special thanks for enabling us to be present at this momentous event.
The film is everything you've heard and more. Certainly a masterpiece. The characters were amazingly developed and engaging and the story was incredible. The violent scenes were brilliantly executed. Though obviously playing out in a morbid time, it was filled with trade mark Tarantino humor and unexpected laughs. I'd say, "go see it" but unless you live in a cave, I'm sure you will.
And mister Eli Roth was unbelievable. Bloody smart, funny, and cooler than you could ever imagine. He was kind enough to meet with us after the screening and talk about projects, present and future.
Many more good things to come.

Last Friday we made our very first newspaper print on page A2 of the Province. We even beat the Cheeky Ground Squirrel (who appeared after us on page A3). Yes, our short parody for the MTV Tarantino Basterdization Contest got our work aired on international television. We made the Top Three and, thanks to all the support from our fans and supporters, we are getting some publicity.
Today we sit down with Glen Schaefer, of the Province, for a more in depth chat. More to come!
