A Short Interview with Jack Greer about his photography.

While I was collecting pictures for my Kickstarter video I spent a lot of time on Jack Greer’s website Digital Ashtray. The older photos on DA offer an intimate glimpse of the era I portray in None of the Bad Ones, and the newer images feel like part of the same conversation about skateboarding, coming of age in Manhattan and the difficult transition into manhood. His photos became the backbone of my video — I wouldn’t have been able to effectively tell my story without them — and I’m really grateful he let me use them. The NOTBO Kickstarter has been a collaborative process and I feel like it’s important to give credit where credit is due, so I did a little interview with Jack to find out more about about his photography and spending the summer of 2014 with the Paych Kids.

what do you think of the new mini series on marilyn?

I believe in giving credit where credit is due and I must say that The Secret Life Of Marilyn Monroe had a wonderful, talented cast and it’s obvious a lot of work went in to the production, from the hair to the shoes, and it does have a few authentic quotes but that’s where the good points end. The script is a massive let down and is a huge insult to not only Marilyn but the other people in her life. It is full of inaccuracies, made up events and misses out some of the greatest moments and people in Marilyn’s life. 

It’s a shame really because as I said, the cast was great and the costumes were amazing and the film could of been incredible had it been done correctly.

If you want to check it out yourself please do not watch it as an actual documentary of Marilyn but rather as a fictional film. I would also suggest that you read the two articles that I have provided below.

I ain’t a huge Bieber fan, but you have to give credit where credit is due. Clearly justin has screwed up a lot over the past couple of years but he’s been displaying a remarkable amount of remorse and sincerity recently. And I feel bad for the kid because he went through something pretty dark. It’s bad enough when you have to go through a dark time, but to have to do it alone is terrifying. But read these quotes! He’s owning up to all his shit. He seems so much healthier and I truly think he’s gonna be alright, which is a relief. He makes so many people happy.. he deserves to be happy, too.
