Bucky Fucking Dent the Movie David Duchovny

BUCKY FUCKING DENT THE MOVIE and a Little Duchovniac Secret

Tuesday October 17, 2017 10am Vancouver time. 1pm New York time.

One hour into my flight, listening to Bucky Fucking Dent via audible books. The sound of David Duchovny’s voice enhances the story.

Bucky Fucking Dent

I struggle to stay focused. Every few seconds a beverage cart or passenger in full pee pee walk bumps the elbow.

I hear the chapter when Marty is trying to suck the demons out of young Ted. In my mind I am casting the movie. Danny Boyle and Alex Karas? Odd pairing but I see/hear them in the characters.

My mind wanders to a truth I have shared with few. We have gathered a subset of diehard X-Files fans, with a few diehard Californication fans, with a few that love all the name sake of this blog kicks out. I like the movie DIEHARD.  Now a few of us are jet setting the world to hear this guy sing?

What I really want, more than anything, is BUCKY FUCKING DENT The Movie.

I have known this project to be in the works for weeks but I was told a little birdie (or puppy, was it not Brick) that the cat is out of the bag.

My wife keeps telling me I could play Ted. He’s over weight. I’m a bit beyond Hollywood fat right now and into second banana range so I would never even ask for an audition. Perhaps for the avant garde live action of Holy Cow, I could play the pig. I am losing weight for the 50 hours of air travel round trip to Australia in February, so maybe…

My mind wanders further.

Is David Duchovny the first to have ACTOR as his day job while pursuing his art?

While music is his passion project, to me, becoming a writer director seems to be his true calling.

We only have a few gems to base this statement, but how many out there consider UNNATURAL one of the best X-Files ever? (Not just for the Mulder / Scully shippy moments at the end.)

To top that here is my little secret. HOUSE OF D is one of my favorite movies of all time. HOUSE OF D is when I became a Duchovniac. (Holy crap I am tearing up editing this blog now – through consciousness side bar notes as editor a first? WTF)

In truth a diehard X-Files fan, I was never a Phile. As a diehard Star Wars and Star Trek fan I was never truly a fanboy or trekkie. I mean I never gave a crap about fandom activities, stars outside of their projects, comic cons, meet & greets, etc.

I respect the craft and finished product and have no desire to know artists as anything but real people should I be so lucky to meet and befriend. I certainly had no desire to create false realities or fantasies about what artists might really be like. Perhaps as an artist I respect the veil of reality and performance more than most. I DETEST online gossip about artists, other fans etc. Most of you have heard or read my thoughts on these abhorrent activities.

That whole world to me destroys movie magic. I can still enjoy a Tom Cruise movie by not thinking about his nutty links to Scientology. (Travolta affected reality acting makes it harder outside of musical projects.) I can still palate Mel Gibson and others. I can even sit through an old episode of Cosby until the first commercial. And if we were to boycott every project Harvey Weinstein or a certain Trump cabinet member, my video library would be near empty.

THAT BEING SAID….

HOUSE OF D is the first time I met David. My wife had attended a few screenings of the movie at Sony Lincoln Center in hope. Laurice was there for a Q&A I believe. I happened to tag along one of the times David was allowing photos and signatures after. I offered David a couple tickets to our Comedy Show. They have yet to be redeemed, but I don’t take it personal. They expired years ago but we would still honor them this weekend. Or next… Or…. I digress…

Meeting David was special. He was incredibly humbled that folks came to see his movie. As with the music now, most were there as X-Files fans first.

This was the day I became a Duchovniac, even though the term was not coined until 2015, and in many ways, I just recently realize this fact fully.

HOUSE OF D is very stirring in a very simplistic way. If you know anything about acting, directing and producing, apparent simple qualities take a huge amount of thought and preparation. Minimalistic theater requires far more from the performing artist to tell the story. Broad stokes paint a clearer picture but subtle complexities take craft. There is nothing simple about appearing simple on stage or screen.

Narrating the opening sequence brings X-Files fans into a familiar world of hearing David’s voice launch a story.

Telling the story through the eyes of two children –a young teen (Anton Chechin) and the child-like mentally challenged friend (Robin Williams)– allows us to enter the world of downtown Manhattan the way we enter the underwater world of Little Mermaid. We relax our minds. Seeing preteens giggle and playing stick ball and making fun of their French teacher and fearing the priest’s wrath and various forms of interaction with girls all lower our guards.

HOUSE OF D has the sweetest on camera scene between a convicted woman and a teen learning to dance. All the scenes between Erica and Anton are riveting. Levels of slowly fading nuanced sweetness with growing despair as each scene progresses. These scenes pit a boy who is relatively naïve – despite dealing with the loss of a father and the failing health of his mother –  against a woman who perhaps has seen more than any human should have to endure at any age. Is she a hooker, drug addict and murderer? There is so much going on that is not said or shown. If you have ever studied circumstances as an actor (Stanislovsky and most of the NY schools in realism) you can only imagine all the back story not in the script. SUBTEXT!!!

As the story reveals more of the darkness these children’s lives the walls are down.  Consequently, the tears flow. When the mother, so amazing underplayed (as brash New Yorkers go) by Tea Leoni, drops her hand limp, the heart fully drops from the chest.

As the flip book story suggests the movie comes full circle, with David playing the grown-up Anton, now with wife and child of his own. All worked out. We can survive tragedy. We can find hope in the worst loss. We can find love out of the darkest places.

Of course, now, thinking of this movie brings additional tears thinking of Anton and Robin PAP ASSS!!!

That is the best part of any quality artistic creation. Time and Circumstance change how we approach the work. Ah, Circumstance (Is my pseudo-method-actor-self sneaking into this blog too much?)

I know many of you have as well. I hope that someone besides Philes that have already seen HOUSE OD D reads this blog and gives the movie a shot. If for nothing else you are missing a very special Robin Williams performance.

I have been waiting for another “written and directed by David Duchovny” film or TV project for 10 years now. Ever since I was told – and sworn to secrecy – about this next big project, I have been a kid on Christmas morning.

We are beyond hope now and into eager anticipation mode. You read my blog about your music in 2015. I hope you get a chance to read this.

HOUSE OF D was the spiritual beginning of the Duchovniacs. Please give us more. Your style is so sweet and endearing without pulling punches on the drama. A modern Elia Kazan and Arthur Miller in one with less a tad less ire. Your characters’ spines have less hate for this world but they are no less real. Perhaps more so.

Two hours into our flight home to New York. Just passed Leech Lake (19km SW of us now) according to map. Back to BUCKING FUCKING DENT on tape.

Paper Clip, Red Museum, more DAY TWO Vancouver

Yesterday started out with waking up way too early. My phone alarm going off at 7am New York time. So we were startled at 4am. Not being a phone that works in Canada it did not automatically reset.

So I struggled to at least rest some more. The blurry photo reflects my reality at the time I suppose. Around 7am Vancouver time, I stumbled down to breakfast. The hotel has a decent spread of breads and pastries. Not quite the epic European trip Continental Breakfasts that spoiled us every morning but better than most American hotels.

Then I enjoyed the pool and hot tub for a bit, alternating warm water soaks with cool water laps. Quite nice!

Upon exciting the pool I joking with a nice couple not too much younger. I was a bit tired form a relatively rigorous swim and relaxed from a far more intense soak, I let them do the honors of using their key to enter back into the hotel.

WAIT THIS IS NOT THE SAME BREAKFAST ROOM!!!

That’s right I was now in the wrong hotel. This was the closest to the Twilight Zone I have ever entered. The pool and health club area is share with the neighboring Marriott.

To further paint the picture my big butt is wet wearing cheap gym shorts for a suit and flip flops, carrying my mini lap top. Totally dismayed, but I was more shocking to the families and business folks having breakfast which there included eggs, potatoes, meats and other stuff. I almost indulged. lol

“Excuse me, Miss,” asking breakfast attendants, “Do you have a key to the pool?”

NOPE! I had to walk down the steps, a bit slippery in wet flip flops, out into the cold rain thought one lobby and around to another. I thought the stares in the breakfast room were awkward, Canadians don’t know me yet on their streets. I shock folks that do know me daily. Well, I think the expect it so no one even scoffs anymore.

In the lobby the rest of the gang is there looking for me. “WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN?” was repeated a few times.

After a brief recap, similar to the one above, we stumbled in the rain to THE ELBOW ROOM where we were happy “TO GET OUR OWN FUCKING COFFEE”. Thanks for the recommendation, Mitch.

After breakfast and some proper rude wait service (On purpose for fun, Like Dick’s – the restaurant –  in the southeast USA), we rented a car and headed North. Except we didn’t.

Another fun #duchovniacs roadtrip

We were actually trying to get to the hotel to make a quick stop but somehow the road construction forced us across a river to Mulder’s old apartment 42 at the Wellington.

Rare glimpse of Mulder's trash behind the Wellington lol

A post shared by Walt Frasier (@waltfrasier) on

Nice area of Vancouver. I could here even with out Mulder as a neighbor.

OK back to the drive north. Once we past some traffic downtown, we see nothing but beautiful bay, and majestic pine covered hills and cliffs for the one hour drive to Britannia Mine Museum (Paper Clip)

Love this place

INSIDE THE MILL #3

Panning for gold, we found a few flakes….. speaking of the gold of course.

We then drove 3 hours though downtown evening rush to ALMMOST Seatle to get some Red Museum BBQ.

Not #vegan

A post shared by Walt Frasier (@waltfrasier) on

Not bad but a bit more sweet than smokey. Better than expected from Southern Canuck BBQ

It was chilly but the snow is mostly fake for a Hallmark Movie film location shot. I was very cold because of exhaustion and being in and out of the rain.

 

EW: The X-Files Season 11 First Look (SPOILERS)

WARNING: WE ARE KEEPING OUR SOCIAL MEDIA ACCOUNTS SPOILER FREE. DO NOT READ IF YOU WISH TO REMAIN UNSPOILED FOR SEASON 11

 

LAST CHANCE

For a show about experiences that can’t be quantified, The X-Files isn’t lacking numbers: 208 (episodes), two (movies), one (Speedo). But the most significant might be 10 — as in, the 10 new episodes now filming in Vancouver. After ratings for 2016’s six-episode revival soared to UFO-worthy heights, the sci-fi drama will return in early 2018, reuniting David Duchovny’s believer and Gillian Anderson’s skeptic for another run of out-there cases. Along with a first look at the new episodes, series creator Chris Carter gave EW classified intel on what to expect from the 11th season.

Mulder and Scully are swapping places

Viewers last saw Scully, immune to the alien virus sweeping the planet, on a gridlocked bridge trying to cure Mulder before it was too late. So what’s with this photo of Scully in the hospital — and Mulder looking healthy as ever? “Obviously something unexpected has happened,” Carter says wryly. But the showrunner promises he planned this reversal long before crafting that cliff-hanger: “Everything is by design.”

In Carter’s own words: “Shippers were heard”

After getting the professional side of their relationship back on track in season 10, Mulder and Scully will be drawn even closer together this year. Carter says fans rooting for the formerly estranged duo to fully patch things up “have something to look forward to.” But the partners are in for an intense journey; the pain of Scully’s decision to give up William (the son she shares with Mulder) for adoption 15 years ago still hangs over both agents. “William has been an absent center,” Carter says. “He will come to the fore.”

It’s not all heavy (but some of it is)

With more monster-of-the-week episodes this season (eight, in all), fans can expect season 11 to be united in theme but varied in tone. After episode one delves into the Cigarette Smoking Man’s (William B. Davis) backstory and apparent family ties to Mulder, the second hour opens with a time jump to put distance between Mulder and Scully and the events of the premiere. And episode three is a darkly comedic hour, penned by Carter, focusing on doubles and doppelgängers. But beyond the humor, the larger mythology of The X-Files — like the fallout from Scully’s abduction and the chip that was implanted in her neck — continues to shape Mulder and Scully’s world.

The conspiracy is getting crowded

A powerful figure played by Barbara Hershey emerges in this season’s story, though the showrunner says any resemblance between her red hair and Scully’s is purely coincidental. “It was a thrill to work with her,” Carter says. He also teases the addition of a so-called Mr. Y — and some characters who only appear to be new. Season 11 will also explore the motive behind one of the biggest shockers of last season: loyal ally Agent Reyes (Annabeth Gish) confessing that she’s in league with the Cigarette Smoking Man. And the showrunner says we’ll get a new angle on Mulder and Scully’s long-suffering boss, Assistant Director Skinner (Mitch Pileggi). “Familiar alliances are rattled,” Carter says.

After all this time, Mulder and Scully can still trust no one.

Update on David’s next Novel: Miss Subways

Looks like David’s next novel –Miss Subways is set to release in May of 2018.

05/01/2018

MISS SUBWAYS

A Novel
David Duchovny
Farrar, Straus and Giroux

Inspired by W.B. Yeats’s play, The Only Jealousy of EmerNew York Times bestselling author David Duchovny reimagines the Irish mythological figure of Emer in Miss Subways, a darkly comic fantasy love story set in New York City.

Emer is just a girl living in New York City who takes the subway, buys ice cream from the bodega on the corner, has writerly aspirations, and lives with her boyfriend, Con. But is this life she lives the only path she’s on? Taking inspiration from the myth of Emer and Cuchulain, loosely based on W. B. Yeats’s play The Only Jealousy of Emer, and featuring an all-star cast of mythical figures from all over the world, David Duchovny’s darkly funny fantasy novel Miss Subways is one woman’s trippy, mystical journey down parallel tracks of time and love. On the way, Emer will battle natural and supernatural forces to find her true voice, power, and destiny. A fairy tale of love lost and regained, Miss Subways is also a love letter to the city that enchants us all: New York.

The X-Files Season 11: More Casting/Characters Announced

We learned two new pieces of information today about who will be joining Mulder, Scully and Skinner in Season 11.  The first was confirmation Agents Miller and Einstein will be returning. The second was the addition of actress Barbara Hershey–who will be playing a new character in the series. 

(FROM TV LINE)
The X-Files Season 11: Robbie Amell and Lauren Ambrose Returning
By Michael Ausiello / August 14 2017, 12:29 PM PDT

The X-Files is bringing back Mulder and Scully 2.0 for Season 11.

TVLine has learned exclusively that Robbie Amell (The Flash) and Lauren Ambrose(Six Feet Under) have signed on to reprise their roles as Agents Miller and Einstein in the series’ latest revival (set to bow on Fox in early 2018). It remains unclear how many of Season 11’s 10 episodes they will appear in.

The pair made their X-Files debut in last year’s six-episode revival as FBI special agents who bore more than a passing resemblance to David Duchovny’s Mulder and Gillian Anderson’s Scully. (Amell’s Miller was open to nontraditional ideas and explanations, while Ambrose’s Agent Einstein — a redheaded doctor who chose to make her career in the Bureau — was far more interested in solving mysteries by using clear-cut, irrefutable science.)

There was buzz that Fox and series creator Chris Carter briefly toyed with (but ultimately jettisoned) the idea of launching an X-Files spinoff centered on Miller and Einstein, something Carter neither confirmed not denied. For her part, Ambrose sidestepped the spinoff chatter when we spoke to her last year. “All I know is it was a great place to work and I would love to do more,” she said at the time. “I love working with Chris and David and Gillian. They’re all amazing, talented people… and I would like nothing more than to do more.”

The X-Files adds female Writers & Directors for Season 11

Fox at TCA: ‘The X-Files’ Season 11 Adds Female Writers
Marisa Roffman August 08, 2017 3:08 pm

The X-Files has added two female writers to its Season 11 staff.

landscape-1465487742-x-files-1001-sc7-0067rjw-hires2

In the aftermath of controversy over creator Chris Carter’s writing team for the series being solely male, Fox Chairman and CEO Dana Walden told reporters during a Television Critics Association summer press tour session on Tuesday that there are actually a number of women penning scripts for the upcoming season.

“Chris has assigned two women episodes [to do]—two of the 10 episodes will be written by women,” Walden said. (Per the show’s studio 20th Century Fox Television, there are actually three female writers: “Karen Nielson will write one episode and Kristen Cloke and Shannon Hamblin will be writing another episode based on a story by Glen Morgan.”) “We do have two female directors. I think Chris is making moves in the right direction.”

“I don’t want to make any excuses for anyone, I just want to explain,” Walden continued. “After 200-plus episodes of a show that has a very specific mythology, where the fan base has a very high expectation that the episodes are going to deliver, that there are going to be Easter eggs…the tendency is to want to rely on the people who helped you make the original when you’re just making 10 episodes. The group that was with Chris for a very long time just happened to be male writers.”

Walden also noted that per her understanding, the hiring of the women wasn’t in reaction to the news; they were hired prior to the all-male writers’ room news breaking.

The new season—which will have 10 episodes, compared to the six hours in Season 10—will be book-ended by episodes that dive into the series’ complex mythology. “The first episode will be mythology…there will be eight, more or less, standalone stories, and then the tenth episode will be [mythology],” Fox Broadcasting Company President David Madden said. “We will touch on the mythology a little bit in the eight, but they will be standalone episodes.”

And though production has just started on Season 11, Walden raved about the quality of the script of the opening hour after the panel. “I think Chris is really excited…there’s certainly no reason he had to do this,” she said. “He’s wildly successful, and it wasn’t about the money…everyone has seen the first script and it’s excellent. It’s a really good starting place for the show.”
