You have quite a long history collaborating with Bob, from countless trips together, to filming each other for various video sections, to editing and producing videos together, for over 20 years. How was getting this compilation of clips for Bob’s latest video similar/ different?
It was similar as always. We pick one main destination and base a trip around that one spot. And well usually end up finding random stuff along the way. We always traveled good together because we both like to keep the plans kinda loose.
There aren't any clips filmed in the Philly region; where did you end up traveling to?
I drove down to see him in Austin and stayed for a couple weeks. We took a short trip to Galveston while I was down there. And than we did a trip up through Albany and over into Portland, Maine.
Was there a conscious effort to film for "Lacuna"?
Not at all. Clips just piled up a little. There is a bit more we filmed on my phone that he couldn’t use that I am going to do a YouTube edit with mixed with other stuff I’ve filmed over the last couple years.
Any good stories from being on the road again with Bob?
Our trip to Maine somehow we manage to drive through all these small towns and every hotel would tell us they were full. There would be two cars in the parking lot. So we ended up sleeping in the van most of the trip. The photo of me in the van outside the Walmart was after waking up one morning.
What was the most kooked thing you witnessed during the Lacuna experience?
Got nothing. If you can’t spot the kook maybe you are the kook? ...fuck!
Best memory related to filming for Lacuna?
Staying down in Austin as long as I did. I used to stay down there every winter, and it had been a really long time since I been back down there.
While filming that brick tranny pillar clip I already had a migraine starting, but I spotted that set-up driving by and had to give it a go. Immediately after I pretty much died and slept in the van for 30 hours straight. Bob spent a whole day with Lino, and I only sat up to piss or puke; shit was terrible.
Bob says he’s going to permanently put down the video camera pretty much after every video he makes; what do you think will happen now that Lacuna is done?
Only time will tell.
