It took several attempts by our kickass props/FX wizard, Matt, but he finally got that soup – which he and his wife actually made from scratch – to drop precisely the way it did in the movie. And thanks for being our guinea pig, PA Paul (shown at right in our parking lot and pre-light…

Party Flavors

23 Jul 18

AMC and Better Call Saul know how to treat party guests. After the Comic-Con BCS Season 4 premiere screening, they hosted a party with Abluquerque-inspired Southwestern delights and perfect homage to “Gene” with this endless stack of buns. Good times made great.

Few locations define auto spots in LA more that the iconic 2nd Street Tunnel.   Last night we chased a Toyota Tundra through it a few times for our friends at Discovery. Look for the spot to hit the air in September right around the return of their riveting unscripted show, Yukon Men.

Last week’s PromaxBDA Conference was a great time, as always.  We hobnobbed with many of our favorite people in the promo world and enjoyed some inspiring and informative panels.  “The State of Our Art” presented by Maurice Marable & Kendrick Reid was a personal favorite, featuring truly heartfelt, transformative work. Though it’s never why you go, it was lovely to…

  Yesterday was a banner day for Bacon & Sons… with a little adventure on the side.

As if working with the show itself wasn’t reward enough, we’re proud of how this project turned out.  Collaborating with everyone at AMC and The Walking Dead to make it happen was, once again, an inspired experience.  You put the “hot” in this Hot Spot.

To Casa Rubia in Dallas.  This tapas inspired restaurant was an amusement park ride of delectable delights.  Each dish topped the one that came before it.  We ended up trying as many dishes as we possibly could.  Not one disappointed. And after a pretty great meal the night before at Smoke in Plano, we’re luck…

Nothing drove Lauren Zalaznick and me (Dan) more crazy than this fucking logo. All throughout our tenure at VH1 — post rebrand from the awful Memphis-style logo — we’d encounter this monstrosity in tertiary cable markets and local listings. It just wouldn’t die. Bane of our existence. Be gone, you!
