Justin menuIn 1995, I made a documentary, 1 hour 12 minutes, which celebrated motsser (and my lover for 5 years) Howard Faye.  Its first screening was at the Motss Memorial Service for H.A. Faye at the Justin Winery in Paso Robles, CA. on August 26, 1995 (menu at left).  It's a rough cut, made without benefit of modern editing equipment (no computer!)  But I have made it available for streaming on-line anyway.  The video can be seen here.

I'm planning on scanning some pictures from my life and putting them on this web site.  The first group of 3 photos and some home movie video can be found here.  Also I starred in a movie with several dogs and a cat directed by my mother when I was about 1-year old in 1942.  You can watch it here
