I had almost forgotten about licensing a couple of Tempe flicks to Ukraine a year and a half ago when DHL showed up this morning with copies of both POLYMORPH and OCTOBER MOON!

Long story short: My wife Svetlana is from Ukraine, and during one of my trips to visit her prior to getting married last August, I asked an interpreter friend of ours if she knew of anyone in the DVD business over there. Turns out she did, and a few meetings later, I inked a deal for the first two pictures with Gemini Film.

So Apple finally set a date for their damned iPhone, which I’ve already been salivating about since it was announced in early January. Sadly, June 29 is still 3+ weeks away at this writing, and of course given the amount of interest in this device, there’s not even a guarantee that I’ll actually get one of the little bastards unless I want to go camp out in front of the nearest Apple or AT&T store all night (and frankly, I’m a little old for that now).
