CrowFans coming back & Robert Zuckerman

Myself, Frank of Crowfans and Corvus of Deadman Visits You have all decided to get off our tail feathers and get this online fanbase active again. Go to the Crowfans front page to read the announcement.

I had the privilage last week to personally meet Crow 1 and 2 still photographer Robert Zuckerman. We didn't get to talk too much about The Crow as he was here to visit with my youth group about his latest book Kindsight. But I did get to hear some fantastic memories from the production of the first Crow film. Something I did not know, Robert was in the room the night Brandon was shot. He was taking pictures of the scene and actually snapped a few shots before and after the fatal shot. Those pictures were of course confiscated for the investigation. It was an event that he would never forget. I will post some pictures of Robert with my youth for everyone to see. It was a fantastic meeting, all too soon over. He is making plans to come back. He had to head back to L.A. as work on the film, "Transformers" beckoned his return.

Rochelle Davis Update

CrowTV alerted us to an update on Crow alum Rochelle Davis, real name Andrea "Drea" Ruano. This is a follow up story to the one posted on the net back in October that detailed her arrest. Things are not looking good for her. We offer our thoughts and prayers that she is able to come out of all this in as positive a way as can be expected. We really hope for the sake of her daughter that she can get away from the people she has been hanging out with and start over.

Crow alum Eric Mabius has a big night

Those of you that have followed the whole Crow franchise remember Eric Mabius. He played Alex Corvis in the 3rd Crow film, The Crow: Salvation. Congratulations go out to him and the rest of the cast of his new series, "Ugly Betty". They were named best TV Series, Comedy or Musical during the Golden Globes last night. They beat out Desperate House Wives, The Office, Entourage & Weeds.

Eric has been VERY busy since he starred in Salvation. Give his IMDB page a look and you will see he has kept up a steady career since being in Salvation.

"The Crow" morphs into "El Muerto" ?

Vampire Mike from the UK sent us a link to a movie that came out in 2005 and is based on a little known indie comic "El Muerto". Some of you have probably seen this. This was my first time to hear about it and check out the trailer. Dang folks, this looks just like a Crow film. I have to say I am VERY intrigued to see this film. You can go to the official site to get info about the film and comic or you can check out the trailer here on YouTube

From what I can gather, it may be available in some non-U.S. markets on DVD. It looks like they are trying to find a distributor for a theatrical release, but I don't see anything up to date to confirm if that is happening. I checked out IMDB and there are 21 folks that rated it and only 2 that gave comments. The comments are polar extremes. One says it is garbage, the other says it is very good. So who knows.

Thanks again to Vampire Mike for the heads up on this.

**UPDATE** El Muerto creator Javier Hernandez has left a message, make sure to check it out.

Brandon Lee Tribute song

Fellow Crow fan Buddy Kelly invites all Brandon Lee fan's to his blog to hear a tribute song he wrote for Brandon several years ago called "Sayeth The Crow".

His hope is to get a big name band to take it on someday and to have it featured on a Crow movie soundtrack. His ultimate dream would be for it to be part of an adaptation of the Crow comic "Flesh & Blood".

I listened to the song, not bad at all. Has a very southern/folk rock sound to it.

Take care

Eyes and ears out for Crow info

Just a reminder, I scouer the net and get information from my resources. But one of the greatest resources we have had over the years is regular visitors keying us to information. If you see anything Crow related, send it on. Full credit will be given to the source. send it to aboyandhisbird@gmail.com .

Anyone check out the latest from Zombie's prequel to Halloween? Seems they are keeping with the same original movie mask design. Thank goodness! The crap they came up with for the 4th-7th films left much to be desired. Though a subpar film, Resurrection at least came the closest to giving us a suitable mask. IMHO of course.

What are your thoughts of the Crow franchise going the same route? Prequel that is. Going back to the original film sort of, but taking it in a different angle?

Shoot me your thoughts.

Take care.....

Misc updates

Here are some updates that I wanted to pass on from CuervoMuerto over at Crowcoll. These were posted late November, so they are fairly recent.

James O'Barr has a MySpace now. Give it a look.

Speaking of James, his official site sponsored the annual Croween contest in 2006. I have not seen any updates on it, but keep checking there for announcement of winners.

Finally, for those that have not been able to find the CD for Trust/Obey's "Fear and Bullets" (the soundtrack created to go a long with the original graphic novel) it's on iTunes. Just search "Fear and Bullets" and you should find it pretty fast. If you search on Trust Obey you will have to wade through other non-related items.

I trust everyone has recovered from the New Years Eve hangovers and gotten back into the groove of things. Talk 2 ya later

Take care.....

Happy New Year!!!!

As you can see from the updates below, we are back in action here in a major way. Unless I'm sick or away from a computer, there should be an update every day on something going on. As noted, some of this stuff will be a bit dated, but not everyone is aware of everything going on so I will be catching folks up on some of the major items that went on in 2006.

I rang in the New Year with 20 of my youth. Was up all night supervising movies, Dance Dance Revolution, Karaoke Revolution, Guitar Hero (1 and 2) and Halo. We always have a good time with food, games and movies with some serious reflection time thrown in at the middle when midnight hits.

At any rate, it is good to be back in action. I hope you had a safe ringing in of the New Year. And here is a toast for a prosperous New Year.

Take care.....
