A Zebra for Sally is a movie I made.. I made it last year and finished it this year.. and I don`t really know what happened after that.. I think a few people saw it, not even all the cast and crew were there at the big unveiling party we had.. and I use the term party very very loosely. At any rate I needed to say more about this film. I have heard some criticisms about it, and I have heard a lot of good things about it.. but at the end of the day when I add everything up and I think about all the things that I went through to make this film and all the hard work from so many people.. from Terry getting covered in pudding, Barry stripping down to his underwear and getting covered in glue and fake blood.. or Kristy tirelessly and endlessly doing everybody`s make up plus her own almost full body make up every day.. to Christine who never questioned me, even when i told her to carry around a stuffed zebra and stare at the canned peas in safeway for 15 minutes while I secretly filmed her with a camera hidden under my coat. I didn`t even mention Isaac, because he was just so amazingly cool he transcends quirky stories. At any rate, when I take all that in to consideration, as well as all the personal crazyness I had to endure by actually making this bizarre ghost story with no money, no free time and no one but myself telling me what I should do.. at the end of the day, A Zebra For Sally is without a doubt, the best movie ever made. And it means a hell of a lot to me. I have heard people say that Out of State is my masterpiece.. but I disagree. Out of State is fucking genius, and in reality it was more hard work, and it was bigger and longer and had more action and adventure... but A Zebra for Sally is really my baby.. it is beautiful and exactly what I wanted.. from the hazy images and the classical backwards bizarro soundtrack that is the dictionary definition of atmospheric.. to the way ever one acts in that movie... it is beautiful.. sally is sally.. the sally from my head.. she is wonderful..

So here's the scoop. It is September, and there are a couple new things that have happened.. and about 50 million new things that will happen... unfortunatly most of those things are still secrets.. so you will have to wait.. except let it be known that I am currently writing a new movie to make, and it will go further beyond anything that has ever been done... i know I say that every time, but it is also sort of true every time.
Any way.. new things.
There is a new short film you can watch, it's called Bruno.. and it is starring Elaine Boyling and it involves a chance meeting in my basement.
Secondly I have finally put my big ol' film "A Zebra for Sally" on-line for everyone to watch... in case you have never seen it, now you can.. without leaving the comfort of your own home..
see it here:
and lastly death ray gun played some live music on a rooftop the other day... here are a couple pictures.. there will be some video shortly.

Blaise didn't do anything for the SC anniversary on the 27th as far as I know. Him and Terry were going to drive around. Now they didn't do that which means that thank the weirdness of the universe for vaguely connecting SC Entertainment with the ghost universe. In the other place and a bunch of dimensions the celebrations go on forever.
Blaise didn't run out of time. He is simmering in the juice in his brain. And something is happening. But not on the SC Entertainment 25th Anniversary.
The reason is possibly the number seven.
The most common number people pick if you ask them to pick a number between 1 and 10 is 7, for some reason. I learnt that from the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. SC is 25. 2 + 5 is 7. That means that this is a year of other people for SC. Uncommon people.
In the I Ching, which i do not understand except that it is complicated, and everything and then nothing, the 25th hexagram is Wu Wang, Innocence (The Unexpected).
INNOCENCE. Supreme success.
If someone is not as he should be,
He has misfortune,
And it does not further him
To undertake anything.
Under heaven thunder rolls:
All things attain the natural state of innocence.
Thus the kings of old,
Rich in virtue, and in harmony with the time,
Fostered and nourished all beings.
So. a few things. There are a lot of things I don;t know which I am sure Blaise could write about here better than me. But some things I know that Blaise did around the 25th Anniversary was get excited about other people to do with SC. The boundaries are blurry of course, which is sort of the tension. Maybe he's scaring himself.
These aren't SC things but they have something to do with SC, because its very exciting, i think. Blaise's friend Vahini sent him 2 issues of the zine she started making. I haven't read it or anything, I only saw the envelope and the paper for a few seconds. anyway. Whatever you need to worry about in your life, somewhere Vahini is making those things, and writing and drawing and the other things she does. Its pretty exciting.
Another pretty exciting thing I know about it Kelton Kolodychuk is making a movie which will horrify you beyond the depths of your crumpled souls, uncrumple you and give you antlers. I don't know when it will be done. He also created the more earworm song you ever imagined which is Fish Berry Goose Brain (i hope that is written right) which is more than worth dancing to. The other thing he did lately was record himself singing and playing guitar with a wolf mask on about how he dances like Zam.... something I can't spell.. but its genius anyway. And he says things all day like "if you say you can't do it then you won't, but if you think anyone can do anything then you might."
Then the other thing that not enough people in the universe witnessed which strangely is a vibrant force not appearing in this journal before i don't think but anyway Mikaela Bridgen perform the 72 hour performance art operetta on The Future Guy. Honestly, thank the stars that you were born in this world, when things like that happen. It was about the future guy and his future clothes which he was selling to people, from a rack. The carnage was unbeatable.
My sister gill has been making clothes. Especially bows and small things with bats and skulls on. She also has unbelievably brilliant hair and snarl. You can see some clothes she designed here:
(that website used to work but i'm not sure it does now)
anyway. she makes clothes that scare people.
Blaise is also in obsessive love with this man for very good reasons:
And an awful lot more. There are an awful lot more people out there. A lot more than I can write down. Making things and being things. And not exactly SC Entertainment. But very very very connected. And its how it fits together with people around. You know they are out there and you have no reason to stop.
Other people blow my brain up into tiny bit then keep on exploding the bits into smithereens until it turns into goo. and its brilliant.
so hello. and thank you.. and you making the things you make makes me happy even though i had no idea you were doing that..

Hello.. it's true. a quarter century of SC Entertainment is upon us...
I was supposed to have a super fantastic new issue of SC Propaganda ready for this momentous occasion... and I was hoping to have some sort of amazing SC festival or something.. somewhere... but alas... time has run out, and I have run out of time to do a lot of things as usual. I hope it doesn't detract from your own personal celebrations.
SC is what it has always been... a place for people to create things, without having to worry about all the things that the world has put in place to make a creative environment a restrictive and sad thing to be a part of. I have done my best over the years to change the entire universe by making weird music in my basements and pointing video cameras at people doing bizarre things... it is only that on the surface obviously.. it is me really trying to bring people together and trying to make people see that things are possible... trying to help the people involved understand all the huge amounts of things that they personally can do that they never thought could ever be possible... and for anyone who gets to see or hear or touch anything that SC has made to open up their minds to realize how big the world can actually be if you look at it in such small pieces. and just by these things existing, it does something for everyone else who doesn't even know they exist...
it would be a nice thing if everyone could just open up and spill out all the things inside...
what i hope for the future of sc... i hope it happens... i hope some how people all over the world will realize that they CAN do what they want to do.. and not worry about feeling stupid or left out or marginalized in any way. SC is about looking at all the things around you that are happening, and really finding all the best parts of it.
you can either watch vacuumicus and see a shitty zero budget monster movie.. or you can see it as something totally amazing that was made out of nothing by some friends who really cared about something special.
thats what i mean by sc.... and my hope is that people can really open up to the amazing things that are possible by EVERYONE.
What can you do to help? Don't walk by when we are planning something huge... find out how you can be a part of it... everyone has something they can do that makes them feel good... and I'm the kind of person who can use what ever you got....
(I'll make a werewolf movie one day... i promise........)
in the mean time..
go watch the sc 25th anniversary movie: http://scentertainment.myartsonline.com/sc25/index.html
some more things I have made recently... video from the death ray gun show, and some short movies by death ray gun:
the next 25 years will be even more fantastical... and maybe even a few of my predictions will come true...
never give up hope when people care so much about what they do...

I have been working on this for about four months and everything is finally ready to go! The movie is about an hour and forty five minutes long (hey.. it's been 25 years... there is a lot to say..) but don't let that stop you from watching it.
You can watch the whole thing on-line in it's full length version, or you can watch it in an episodic version where it has been split in to 8 parts... so you can view it over a little more time.... OR if you are the type of person who wants to relax on your couch and eat popcorn, send me an e-mail and I will mail you out a DVD copy for FREE.
This is a big deal, and I really encourage all of you to watch it. If you get this e-mail then you know I am slightly bizarre and obsessive about making things... this movie will hopefully show you how it got that way.. and all the things that have happened up to this point. And if you have known me for any sort of length of time, chances are some of the things in this movie will directly relate to you.
Twenty five years is a long time... especially for a small group of friends to have such a strong vision of creativity.. for some of us, like me, it is how we have chosen to live our life, it means everything to us... and it will continue forever regardless if we get any credit or not. Over the years SC has grown in to something huge, at least on a scale of the effort and love and heart that is put in to everything that happens.. It is more than some independent films and music.. it is an ideology of a world where people can really make a difference with art, even on the smallest of scales.
So.... with that said.. please come and find out what it is all about...
There is a website I have put up with everything you need... The whole film, the episodes, and some other special information such as lists of all the films and music we have made over the years.. and more.
In other news:
-The latest issue of SC Propaganda Magazine is available to read on the web site.
-Death Ray Gun are playing a live show July 25th at "The Terence System Music Lounge" e-mail me for tickets or more info.
-The Beefart and Cheenkaw Adventure Hour is now in pre-production..

The march issue of SC Propaganda is now on line for all you suckers who don't get it in your 'real'mail box.... if you want it to start coming to your house, in super futuristc paper form.. send me an e-mail with your mailing address.

The Death Ray Gun (mostly) animated series! A bizarre tale in three parts detailing the adventures of Death Ray Gun! (AKA Blaise and Elaine)
Check out the preview right here!
Thursday, 3 April 2008
Hello one and all..
I just wanted to ask for your help on a couple things..
The most amazing group of superheros, DEATH RAY GUN, aka Blaise Kolodychuk and Elaine Boyling will be playing a LIVE show on July 25th 2008..
Pretty amazing I think... but here's the problem.. we don't have anywhere to play.. all we have is an amazing plan and a bag of dinosaur bones.
If there is anyone in Calgary who could hook me and Elaine up with a place to play our show for that day, it would rule the universe...
Why don't we play somewhere that other bands play? Because we are planning on doing like a hour and a half, two hour set of music, and we want total control over the situation to do whatever we want.
So we need like a house.. or a basement.. or somewhere that can fit some people and where we can all have a good time.
Do we have money to pay you? Hell no... Death Ray Gun Live should be all the payment you need.
I would rather it be someone I know in person already.. but any offers I get would be appreciated.
Please help us!
Second on the list.. DEATH RAY GUN ARE PLAYING LIVE JULY 25th somewhere in CALGARY!
yes it's true.. what I would like to know is, how many of you would like to come out and have a strange night of music with me and Elaine? (This may also help is choosing a suitable venue, once we know how many people will be there, if there is a big enough interest, we may just rent out a hall or some sort)
This event may only take place once in your life time.. so I would suggest you do anything you can to make it.
Thanks, and I look forward to hearing from all of you!
p.s. Become a fan of Death Ray Gun, and Fukachuk Egg Machine on Facebook!
p.p.s. Did I mention the ultra amazing Terry Ramsay will be playing drums for Death Ray Gun? Well he is....
