Sorry to do any sort of promotion on the board but I figure this is where my audience is:

www.myspace.com/couldntyouwait

Any information you may need is listed there. More updates and goodies will be posted soon. This will serve as a temporary website until the trailer is finished.

Thanks

Thanks for doing this, and for finding me so quickly on myspace. Only scary ex-girlfriends are that quick at finding me on there.

I think you bought that James Blunt CD for yourself.

I was tempted. The broad range of instruments he plays on the album really made me rethink what team I play for.

Ok, ok, this thread shouldn't get off topic.

In an effort to keep this thread alive, here's some wonderful things Heather Whinna had to say:

"I can not begin to explain what SKWM means to me. I can not properly explain my love for their music or Andy, Tim, Mikey, Joel, Vickie or Matt, but I will try. I should say that I do not know Joel well, but I know his music like I know the greatest love of my life. The others are another story. It sounds impossible to believe that they are all the greatest people you will ever know, but it is true. Some people are moved to tears by the Grand Canyon and some to music. For me it is music. Music has been the second biggest influence on my life after my father and my father introduced me to music. The greatest gift that was ever given to me was being allowed to participate with SKWM's music. As dramatic as that sounds-- it is absolutely true. I have loved the same man for 13 years and he brought their music to me. Thank-you Steve.

I was lucky enough to work intimately with Michael for a couple-three years (as we say it here in Chicago.) Michael edited a documentary that both Vickie Hunter & I decided to take a stab at. I miss Michael so much that it breaks my heart every day. Every day.

I remember when Joel left the band. There were songs off of Libertine in particular that are my favorite songs ever. There was a day when I was working "hard" at Reckless Records and it struck me that they may never play Joel's songs live again. I genuinely started to panic. I asked Tim about it and he informed me that those were Joel's songs and it would be inappropriate for someone else in the band to sing them. In retrospect, as I have seen other bands do just that, I realize he was right, but at the time I was honestly devastated. I felt betrayed, distraught and on the verge of tears. None of that is an exaggeration.

I am lucky enough to have a million personal stories about these guys that make me smile every day. Every day. Andy is filled entirely with kindness (and BBQ) but more importantly Steve & I went happy-crazy when he started wearing that Jewish Star of David made of nails while they played live.

Tim, remarkably generous and truly honest has the sweetest ability to harmonize and still rock. Next to Steve, Matt Kadane is the smartest guy I know with the biggest heart-- so big that you can see it from a far. Vickie is the best friend someone could have-- completely reliable and filled with knowledge and love. She is a rock for everyone else around her.

Michael--every time I start to cry for myself and how much I miss him, I actually think of him and laugh out loud. I laugh with him and at him. I bought gardening gloves and runner's shorts that would dry in a minute for Michael as a gift when they came through town about 10 years ago- because that is what he wore when they played live. They don't make people like that.

Well I guess Sydney does. Thank-you Sydney. Michael didn't dress like a well-built runner who wore gardening gloves for attention- he dressed like that because that is what worked for him. I am laughing out loud right now as I write this.

Saying yes to Steve's request for a commitment 13 years ago was the best decision I ever made and my family is the luckiest card I ever drew. My sister is my hero and I was able to introduce her to SKWM! How lucky am I? I won't go on and on, but being a small part of SKWM and bullying them into live requests was the best gift of my life. Thank-you SKWM. I really am so lucky.

And most importantly I want SKWM & Michael's family to know that Michael is a part of my life every day. Every day."

I can take a better picture of this poster if you want.

The artist, Ethan D'Ercole, is my friend and former roommate, so I got a hold of one of the posters right from him.

It's about as definite as it gets.

I sent this out last night:

First, I need to clear up that the film is not yet finished. The intent of this myspace page is to raise awareness about this project as we get further along. The trailer we are editing together will be used as a tool to finance the last half of the film and hopefully, get more people interested via Youtube, Myspace, etc. We expect to have a finished product to sell/show by the end of this year but things often change in the world of independent filmmaking. We will just have to see.

In the meantime, if there's anything (photos, videos, interviews, articles, flyers, etc.) you would like to contribute please send us a message or email us at silkworm_documentary@yahoo.com.

- Seth Pomeroy (director)

UPDATES:

MP3s have been added for those who stumble upon our page and ask themselves, "Silkworm, who?"

If you haven't seen it already, we've posted a wonderful letter from Heather Whinna on the main page. After you've read it, go to the SKWM STORIES blog and post your memories/stories about Silkworm. We want to hear from you!

I hope it isn't inappropriate for me to say that I would probably go see a band called Jewish Star of David.
