Free Fall Friday

The news fall out from the week is just head spinning and there's no time to waste on the small talk. So, Get Set, Ready, Read......!

Eureka!: This just in from the Queer Coalition concerning the on again, off again Domestic Partnership Registry in the Ozarks. Earlier this week as posted here, Phillip Wilson an ardent opponent to the measure submitted certified signatures to halt the registry. However, legal wrangling, policy interpretation and other maneuvers will now allow the registry to move forward. Thusly, the Eureka Springs, Ark., Domestic Partnership Registry will begin Friday, June 22, 2007.
Applicants must appear in person with proof of age and the $35 registration fee in cash. Application forms are available click here . Certificates of Registry will not be mailed to applicants.
The City Clerk's office is in the City Hall, lower level of the Western Carroll County Courthouse, 44 S. Main. Office hours are 9:30 a.m. to 12 noon and 1:30 to 4:30 p.m.
Application forms for Termination of Domestic Partnership Registry are available click here. The fee for registration of a termination of a registered partnership is $20 in cash. With all that said let's also enter, caveat emptor, because these ceremonial registrations have no legal standing in Arkansas (or perhaps anywhere else for that matter) due to the Marriage Amendment passed several years ago.

Sneaky SICKO: I'm on Michael Moore's mail list and ususally gets first dibbs on what's up with his latest antics. This dropped in on 6/21/07 to alert me and others to a sneak preview of the documentry, SICKO, coming to a theatre to you on June 29. Unfortunately, Little Rock didn't make the cut to screen the film first. I'm just lovin the new age of video where everyone's a producer or creator, especially those who take a basic premise and go with it. It seems that everybody's in on it, including the Hillary Clinton campaign with it's Soprano bow to announce it's theme song. Meanwhile, the Sicko trailer get's the "nip and tuck" treatment and it's just too much fun. Hopefully, I can get in on the act with some self stylized videos and take offs on what's really going on in the near future.


Would you like to go to a sneak preview of my new film, "Sicko," before it opens on June 29th? Well, if you live anywhere near the 32 cities listed below, this Saturday night, June 23rd, our movie studio is going to hold sneak screenings of "Sicko" in 43 theaters across the country. I'd love for you to be one of the first to see it so, if you'd like, you can click here and order tickets now. We'd love to see you there.
Also, if you live in the New York City area we are opening the film tomorrow (Friday, June 22) exclusively at one theater, the AMC Lincoln Square for a first week run. The interest in the film is very high and theaters have been asking us to open it as soon as possible. Alright, already! It opens tomorrow in NYC, the sneak previews are Saturday around the country, and we open nationwide next Friday, the 29th.
Last night we screened "Sicko" for the members of Congress and the Senate in Washington, D.C. Earlier in the day we testified during a briefing in Congress called by the Chairman of the Judiciary Committee, Rep. John Conyers, Jr. I brought with me some of the people who appear in the film to tell their stories -- and it was a powerful moment.
I will write again next week, before "Sicko" opens nationwide on the 29th. I'm so excited, after spending the last couple of years working on this film, that you all will finally be able to see it.
