David Sutcliffe Project

Thank you to Gilmore fan Cinzia, who has really been one of the biggest boosters of David Sutcliffe’s (Chris) new project: “Group: A Documentary Web Series.” I told Cinzia I would spread the word about this project; it’s one that sounds interesting for a variety of reasons.

First, of course, anyone from Gilmore Girls already has my respect and best wishes. More importantly, it is, in David’s own words, his “passion project,” and everyone should have the opportunity to bring their passions to life. (I speak from personal experience with The Gilmore Girls Companion — thanks to all of you for helping me bring THAT passion project to life!)

Finally, David is bypassing the whole Hollywood system by going directly to the people for help in funding this project, something I’m a great believer in.

The only challenge here is that there’s a ticking clock. David’s looking to raise $40,000 for Group by the end of June 12th, and he’s halfway there! The catch is that if he doesn’t raise the full $40,000, he forfeits whatever he has raised — just the way the Kickstarter site works. So check out his Kickstarter page, especially the generous “thank you” gifts he’s offering for pledges at various financial levels, and see if this is something you would like to invest in. Whatever you can afford, I’m sure he will greatly appreciate.

Speaking of David Sutcliffe, Arieanna over at GilmoreNews.com has a great two part video interview with the Gilmore alum: Part 1 is here and Part 2 here.

(Whew, OK maybe that will go some ways toward making up for my extremely stupid mixing up of Peak Practice and Private Practice in the book under his entry?)

    Yes, Dave’s project sounds like it’s very fascinating. But, I would like to ask for your oppinion on ASP’s possible amourosity with “Twin Peaks”, she comes across as someone who could like that show. As you might know I’m currently watching it here on television. And today no other than Kathleen Whilhoite had a guest spot on the show. Besides Mädchen Amick and Sherilyn Fenn, who are regulars, she’s the third face also known from “Gilmore Girls”. Now I wonder, did Amy watch “Twin Peaks” and did she want to work with those women some time in the future, so she brought them in on “Gilmore Girls” or is it just some strange twist of fate? Such questions bug me, because I rarely believe in coincidence. Maybe you know more.

    Congratulations on the word “amourosity,” Zoran 🙂

    In this case, I’m reasonably sure that you’re right — there was no coincidence here. Dan and Amy are incredibly eclectic when it comes to their interests in pop culture. From Norman Mailer to Bruce McCulloch (Tobin, better known as a founding member of the Kids in the Hall comedy troupe) to the aforementioned women of “Twin Peaks,” they kept their casting directors busy not just filling the usual roles with the usual actors, but also landing people that had always fascinated them.

    Where many American shows are known for their “stunt casting” (casting big name celebrities of the moment in throwaway roles), Gilmore preferred to bring back cult TV actors instead. Personally, I think casting Sally Struthers as a series regular decades after she was famous for All in the Family was one of Gilmore’s greatest accomplishments.

    This occasional crossover with American pop culture seems particularly appropriate for a show that is most known for its evocation of that pop culture.

    You liked that word? I just thougt it was the most fitting to describe the relation. More than a liking but way less than an obsession.
