On The Road To Utah

Today was a somewhat silly day at PS, as Sarra did her best to deal with the high volume of bubble wrap that came into the office...

Luckily Kelley was around to help her sort things out.

But that's not the real issue here... No, the big deal at PS 260 today is the Sundance Film Festival. More specifically, the involvement of PS 260, All Day Buffet, and Brandname in said festival because of the movie On The Road With Judas, based on JJ's book by the same name. The film made it into the Sundance Competition section of the festival, to all of our great delight. So we had a little party before they left.

We had party horns,


and confetti. (it looked better in action)

We all toasted JJ and the fruit of his toils.

And Ronan too.

Kelley was so excited she got overexposed.

We send all of our On The Road With Judas friends off to Sundance with our best wishes, congratulations, and full support.

Someday we'll post about the Christmas Karaoke Extravaganza. Until then, keep a-rockin', America. Keep a-rockin'.

What's a Saturday if you're not at PS260?

Wow, it's been awhile! We've really missed you. Much has happened in the world of PS260, many birthday cakes and empanadas have been had, and we've gotten some new employees... all of which I will talk about at a later date.

First of all, we suddenly have a gaping hole in our office, hidden tastefully by a giant wooden perimeter.

We're building a stairway... not to heaven but close: to the Penthouse from the 11th floor.

(these are arial views from the PH)

And second of all, our very own Stephanie Land, receptionist by day, artist and photographer extraordinaire by night, had her first-ever trunk show in our office last Saturday.

By 1pm, an hour before showtime, she was scurrying around making all kinds of copies of price lists and such.

PS260 family friend Nicole, now working at Transistor, came over to help set up.

We cleared out the kitchen to make room for all of Stephanie's amazing photograph prints and hand-made cards, postcards and journals.

... and buttons!

We put up fliers so people would know they were in the right place.

First to arrive was Brandname artist Marlin with his wife Rhonda and little Ozzie Lask.

Nicole hadn't seen them since her Brandname days.

Throughout the afternoon the office saw many awsome people stop by to support Steph.

Even Dustin took a short break from his editing toils to join the perusal party.

It was like a PS260 alumni party. Along with Tom Colella, Bryan Wetzel made an appearance,

... as did Emily,

... and Madeleine.

It was the stationery social event of the season!

... with a beautiful sunset to cap it off.

If you are interested in seeing some of Steph's handiwork (which you should be, because she's pretty much amazing), please visit her website at:

The Trailer Tradition Lives On

It's been awhile, hasn't it? Let's get up to date. Last Thursday was the viewing party for the annual AICE Trailer Park contest. You may know this as the contest for assistant editors that launched PS 260's own Robert Ryang into internet stardom and was the subject of this blog's first entry. Last year, 2 peeps from PS placed (Rob in 1st and Tom Colella in 3rd) out of the 5 who entered. The challenge is to take one of the 9 assigned movies and cut a trailer for it... as a film of a different genre. This year the contestants were Ned, Jenna and Princess. You can watch some of their trailers here and here.

Rob and Dustin came along for support and cocktails.

The place was jumpin'. All kinds of networking was going on amongst the free pizza and gin and tonics.

We chatted with lots of folks, most notably a newly-promoted assistant, Ian, from Crew Cuts who ended up winning 2nd place with a blaxploitation comedy version of "Enter The Dragon." It was truly fab.

Also at the party was Paul, representing Avid and all its glory. He and Dustin got a little wacky together..

Soon enough, the party really got started... an hour of trailers.

After all the fun was over, we decided to make use of the taco truck outside. A real coworker-bonding experience.
