I have mostly bad news for you if you like the images you see in this post. Over the weekend of April 20, 2013, Bold Hype Gallery hosted a 2 night only tribute show featuring artists renditions of their favorite Martin Scorsese films/characters/interpretations. The show was really cool. The bad news is that like I said above, the show only ran for 2 days and is now closed.

George Harrison - Living In The Material World. Showing on HBO on October 5 and 6, 2011
Martin Scorsese’s documentary on George Harrison, “Living in the Material World,” made its US premiere at the New York Film Festival on October 4, 2011. The four hour documentary is a must see for all Beatles fans. There’s a ton of footage you’ve probably never seen before including home movies as well as newly recorded interviews with Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Yoko Ono, Eric Clapton and Tom Petty – just to name a few. The film is a fantastic portrait of a fantastic man. Obviously as he was a Beatle, he achieved fame and success that the majority of people on earth will never get to taste and yet he spent his life searching for inner peace. The first half of the documentary covers the Beatles and the second half explores his fascination with spirituality and shows great footage from his solo career.
George’s widow, Olivia Harrison was present to introduce the film and afterwards, Martin Scorsese, Olivia and some of the key film makers did a question and answer session. Spotted at the premiere were Eric Idle, Adrian Grenier, Rita Wilson, Fisher Stevens and Wes Anderson. The film will air on HBO on October 5 and 6th, so make sure you catch it!

Film director Martin Scorsese is celebrating his solar return today, November 17. According2g wishes him a very happy birthday. I’ve met Mr. Scorsese many times and he was nice each and every time. I have a pretty good Martin Scorsese story, but unfortunately for you, I’m saving it for my book. I give enough stuff away for free though on this site, so that should bring that smile back to your face. What’s your favorite Martin Scorsese movie? You can even say the American Express commercials he’s been in. There’s no judging at according2g.
