THE TREASURES OF LONG GONE JOHN!
This is a great documentary about one of the most interesting guys I know, and a good friend. Long Gone John founder of Sympathy for the Record Industry, and obsessive art collector (Understatement) also founder of Necessaries Toy Foundation. Directed by Gregg Gibbs this a documentary gem that is slated for wide release next year.
It includes interviews with many cool artists, somehow I got in there. John was the first guy to hire me to sculpt vinyl toys. We always got along and he was a constant source of amusing enlightenment.
The Treasures of Long Gone John makes a great stocking stuffer!
