I've had a lot of people ask me for this video, so here goes... In 1993 I had a public access Cable TV show called 'CARPOOLING WITH KALYNN", a weird twist on the talking head format. In this episode, I 'interview' my good friend Paul Marco - He was best known as KELTON THE COP in the ED WOOD 'Plan-9 from outer space' trilogy. Hear him tell Ed Wood stories, listen to him dish on Bela Lugosi, watch him fall and crack his head (part two)!!! Yep, but he was a good sport about it and went on with the show anyway. See, the car was actually a foam-core cutout that I had painted and folded back to give the 'hood' perspective. This was set up on a 2 foot riser (to let the blue-screen fill the area to the bottom) with nothing more than 2 folding chairs on it - but because the 'car hood' was at such a long angle, the chairs were positioned at the very edge of the riser. You can see Paul squirming quite a bit and I was worried that he was moving the chair too far back - and as soon as I start to tell him that his chair was too close to the edge, he took the spill, slamming his head against the wall behind the riser! He insisted we finish the show, so after some fancy (yea right) editing with vintage footage, we were back up and running! It is quite fascinating to hear Paul tell what it was like during the filming of Ed's masterpieces. I had to cut the episode into 3 parts to fit it on YouTube, so look for all 3 parts here (show production credits are in part 3). Paul passed away a few years ago, but he is not forgotten and I am honored to have been included in his small circle of friends, this post is for you Paul! I admit I am a poor talk show host, but the truth is I started as the idea guy and art director then had to fill in when no one else wanted to be the 'host' (driver) , so it is what it is... I am planning to post the entire CARPOOLING series which includes ridealongs with Counter Culture Madman PAUL KRASSNER and Fuzz Guitar Legend DAVIE ALLAN and a few extra surprises... watch for LOTS More cool Archive goodies soon.
