Tarkins, man. Tarkins.
I made a whole bunch of Tarkin movies! Well, three.
September 18, 2011
I uploaded a bunch of old movies to youtube.
Most of which you may have seen before, one you definitely haven't:
And the new old one:

Carlough Bros and Two Girls on Atom TV!
Carlough Bros: Three Way is on Comedy Central's Atom TV tonight at 2:30 AM. It's very confusing when a show is on at 2:30 AM, because you're not sure if that counts as the night before or the day after. But I'm relatively sure that when they say Wednesday 2:30 AM, they mean technically Thursday super early in the morning 2:30 AM. Then next week, Two Girls is on at the same time. Whenever that is.

Carlough Bros: Three Way
The original title was Carlough Bros: Online, but I thought people would be more inclined to watch it if they thought they were going to get something vaguely pornographic.
February 8, 2010
Part of a continuing series where I play a guy who's mildly perverted and easily annoyed.

The iPhone Affair
Starring me, Michael Cyril Creighton, Hannah Bos, and Paul Thureen as The iPhone.
I used to have an iPhone, so this is almost a documentary. Sort of like how Space Jam explains how Michael Jordan quit minor league baseball and started playing basketball again.
If the embed doesn't work, you can watch it here: The iPhone Affair.

LOL is going to be on TV Monday night!
If you like acronyms, you're going to love Comedy Central Monday night at 2:30 AM. My rap video, LOL, is going to be on Atom TV. You can check out what else is going to be on here and if you'd prefer to get to bed at a reasonable hour, you can watch it here.

Hazzards and Carlough Bros in Vassar Brew Ha Ha!
I came up with that title, Brew Ha Ha. Vassar was founded by a brewer you see. I'm not saying I'm proud of it, I'm just telling you how it is.
But Warnock, Carl, and I will be performing at Crash Mansion this Wednesday at 8PM, along with a smattering of other Vassar grads including The Hazzards, Jessi Klein, Kevin Maher, Rob Sosin, Maura Madden, Cas Nozkowski, and some other stuff that's so crazy, I can't even tell you about it.
Here's the facebook event:
And if you don't have a facebook account, here's an uninformative link to the Crash Mansion website
It'll be awesome, I promise.

Metal Gear: Gamesaver
This is the first in a series of five unrelated shorts that I'm doing for atom.com. If you've ever played Metal Gear, I think you will find this funny. If you haven't, you will find it less funny, but still relatively funny, hopefully.

Monday night: more penis
My Best Friend Is My Penis returns to Atom TV this Monday at 2:30 AM on Comedy Central. I don't have cable, so I never know how these turn out, but I'm sure it'll be awesome.
You can check out what else is on the episode here:
April 1, 2009
I uploaded some really old videos to youtube
The first is Lameosaur in Dick Sandwich.
Boy, that movie's old.
The second is National Environmental Inaction League (NEIL)
A company hired me to make that, but they never paid me, so screw it, I uploaded it to youtube. So there.
December 8, 2008
They said it couldn't be done
But I'm playing a penis on tv tonight. I'm pretty sure I'm not the first live action penis on basic cable. But how about the first red-headed penis on basic cable? Maybe.
You can read all about it and what else is on the show here.

The fourth and final(?) episode of My Best Friend
November 29, 2008
Watch Empire Strikes Back tonight, why don't you?
So, this is as last minute as it can possibly get, but Spike is showing Empire Strikes Back at eight tonight, and as an added bonus, they're showing Tarkin n Friends at some point during the breaks.
I'm not sure why they didn't show it during Star Wars itself, maybe they were worried about spoilers.
November 23, 2008
Don't kick me
November 16, 2008
Hey look, another My Best Friend episode
October 22, 2008
If you've ever wanted to watch a video about a penis at work, here's your chance
This is the first episode of a series Jon and I have been working on for a while. I won't spoil it anymore than I already have, just watch it. You'll like it, I promise.
October 6, 2008
The Paraphrase Theater that started it all, Tarkin n Friends, is going to be on Comedy Central tonight with a whole bunch of other Star Wars stuff. And I don't have cable, so if anybody sees it, tell me how it went in the comments.
May 9, 2008
Will and Matt get interviewed about film and I mutter and say like a lot
If you like hearing me talk about myself, because god knows I do, you'll love this interview.
And I don't want to be one of those people who talks about how they're getting old all the time, but boy, I look like a different person in those old Graham Ave Trilogy movies.
March 8, 2008
Paraphrase Theater: Hamlet!
I wrote a bunch of intros for this and didn't like any of them, so I'll just present this without comment:
February 22, 2008
Oscar Paraphrase Theater
There's a new Paraphrase Theater up, this time paraphrasing all the Oscar nominees for best picture.
Update: Apparently 236.com is no more, so here it is on youtube.
February 12, 2008
Paraphrase Theater gets a nod from the real deal
The Official Star Wars Blog found Tarkin n Friends on youtube and decided to do a short interview with me.
February 6, 2008
Someone at youtube likes Paraphrase Theater
Click that link quick, I don't know how long it's going to last.
Update: Paraphrase Theater has now made it to the front page proper and getting more and more comments that make less and less sense.
December 27, 2007
More Paraphrase Theater
With more on the way.
November 27, 2007
You know, I don't think I ever posted this
And I like it so much, I'm going to embed it right here. I give you Paraphrase Theater:
November 19, 2007
These have been a long time coming, but I think you all are ready for them now. They star Jon Togo, Justin Long, and some special guest stars, including yours truly. I give you Casted:

More Blood Brothers!
All right, now that diogenes club is back in business, now it's time for some Red-headed League updates. Well, not really. I'm going to link to youtube, but the thing that's on there would normally be hosted by the League. See, back in my day, you had to do a lot of work to get a video online, and that's what the League was for. Now, that's kind of dated and more trouble than it's worth. I know, you don't care, just link to the videos. Well all right, here you go:
Blood Brothers Episode 1 (this one was linked to a while back on the club, but it was buried on the Monsters HD website until now)
There's lots more coming, so stay tuned.
July 23, 2006
Sooner or later, this movie'll be up on the League, but for all you diligent clubbers out there, it's been put on Voom's web site since it'll be airing on their Monsters HD channel, so you can enjoy it now. So do.
(We're over in the right hand corner there.)

There's more hilarious Sundance tales coming soon, but in the meantime, check out the first assignment of our newly created director's club:

It's off to Sundance for me
So it'll probably be a while before I post, but you can check out this interview I did with nerve.com. In the interview, I asked for a free nerve account. They cut that part out, the cheapskates.
Update: And also, New York Magazine gave us a sweet shout out, too. Thanks guys!

Sundance's standards: Officially Lowered
Sorry for the lack of posts as of late, but I've been sitting on a piece of news - Robin's Big Date got into Sundance.
Crazy, huh. When it rolls around next month, I'll probably do a long winded summary of my trip out there like I did with Fantiasia. Or would you guys prefer that I stick to making fun of bad movies and stupid people that send me email?
October 20, 2005
Being interviewed is fun
The good people at NYC Midnight posted an interview with me and Cas about False Alarm. I want to say something funny about it, but I'll just point you to the interview and hope I said something funny there.
September 18, 2005
You win some, you lose some, you take your ball and go home some
To take a break from making fun of people on the internet and making lame word plays with mouthwash labels, I'll tell you about what I've been up to.
A feature script I wrote, The Gospel According to Lebbaeus Called Thaddeus placed as a semi-finalist in Slamdance's screenplay writing competition. You can see the results here. You'll have to scroll down a bit, or just search for the word 'gospel.' They came up with that genre, historical comedy, which I had never heard of before, but there were two other entries in the same genre. It's the new thing, apparently.
When I was in the eighth grade, I was a semi-finalist in the Nintendo World Championships (if that's not the perfect pickup line I don't know what is). But I always got the feeling that that wasn't as impressive as it sounded. I was never sure how many people entered and how many people became semi-finalists, but it seemed like it wasn't actually that hard to make it as far as I did. Slamdance gave out the numbers and there were fifty semi-finalists out of some two-thousand submissions, which ain't half bad.
But before you get too excited, I should also tell you that Robin's Big Date was rejected from my hometown film festival. That's right, the film festival in Chatham, NY (pop. 4,249) didn't have a spare eight minutes to show the Movies Askew award winner that was made by probably the only person remotely resembling a filmmaker ever to be born and bred in that
one horse town of inbred hicks. But don't worry. I'm not bitter about it.

Knock knock continued
The Hazzards' new video Shut Up and Make Out!
The Hazzard's new video Shut Up and Make Out who?
The... No, wait. No, that's it. Just the video.
What about the knock knock joke?
It was just a pretense for introducing the video.
But I wanted to hear the joke.
Just watch the video.
June 16, 2005
I wrote up another big "Ways to tell a movie is bad" piece, but lost it in a browser crash. That'll show me. Anyway, in lieu of that, I'll give you my favorite reaction to Robin's Big Date so far, from batfan417:

The Bat-man strikes
Wow. I'm overwhelmed by the response to The Bat-man. So is the League server, as you may have noticed. I threw a couple more bucks to my hosting company to give me some more bandwidth that'll hopefully keep us up throughout the month. I'm almost afraid to make too big a post here, every byte counts. A technical explanation of what I did wrong and maybe a couple vaguely entertaining, name-dropping stories of how The Bat-man came to be, soon to follow.
May 5, 2005
Man, I finally have something new to put up on redheadedleague, seems like it's been ages. You may be familiar with the sucky The Bat-man comics that I drew a while back. Well, out of the kindness of their hearts, Sam Rockwell, Justin Long, Josh Hamilton, and Callie Thorne helped me, James Duffy, and a frantic crew bring The Bat-man to life. Here it is:

Logs and the League
In that last post, I referenced Doctor Who and Star Trek just in the title. I should thank God everyday that I've even kissed a girl.
I've gotten a couple of compliments on diogenes club, both in the comments section and in real life, which really puts the pressure on to come up with material. Especially since the compliments are usually followed by something about how I should post everyday. But it's nice to know that these postings aren't being totally lost in the ether. The logs claim that the club's readership has been steadily growing, and I'm occasionally pleasantly surprised by a complete stranger posting a comment. I started this blog so that people who visit the League would have something to come back to more often than when we make a new movie or I come up with another The Bat-man comic. I didn't do that great a job, because the relationship between the two is probably unclear to the casual observer, and the links to each other are not immediately apparent, which I kind of did on purpose so that diogenes club wouldn't take focus away from the League. That said, the League gets four times the traffic that this site does, despite the fact that it hasn't been updated in months, so I don't have to worry about this overshadowing all the good stuff on the League. I may try to make their relationship more obvious, but as anyone who's ever used the double feature finder knows, in the web development world, user interface is not my speciality.
More interesting than numbers in the logs, though, are the search terms that get people to this page. By far, the biggest search term that draws people to this site is Jonathan Togo, who I mentioned once in a post mostly unrelated to him. Most people were probably disappointed that this is just a site where I complain about movies and talk about people on the subway that I hate, but for all of you Togo fans out there, there may or may not be a special something for you in the League archives.
Most other search terms other than Will Carlough and diogenes club only brought one person here, but here are some of the more interesting ones:
"he doesn't make sense, i don't make sense , together we make sense - to what movie" (It's Untamed Heart, by the way)
"porn with the scooby-doo characters" (sorry to disappoint)
"grammer you and" (I misspelled grammar on the right on purpose, I'm not sure if this guy did)
"bunch of jerks"
"margaret cho sucks" (I suppose this site really is all about negativity, isn't it)
Anyway, I've got one or two more ways to tell a movie's bad in me and maybe another vaguely offensive picture that takes me a lot longer to do in photoshop than it should. More as it comes.
November 24, 2004
It never ceases to amaze me how amazed I am by how early the sun sets during the winter. I am truly shocked every year, like some puppy that gets smacked in the face with a newspaper and then five minutes later is happily panting, waiting for more. Not that it really matters, it's not as if I'd be out in the park running laps if it were still light out.
In other news, I've finally posted Will Carlough's Awesome Movie Show on the League.
More as it comes.

That's me after shaving off all of my body hair, strapped into a scale model of the interior of the Astor Place cube for a music video that my friend was directing.
Along with a yellow shirt that I drew a zig zag on, my baldness allowed me to be Charlie Brown for Halloween. A character that ranks up there as one of my top childhood heroes. At least in my revisionist history of childhood heroes. I'd just as soon forget I used to really like Snarf and the entire cast of Josie and the Pussycats.
And Welcome Back, the movie that won that twenty-four filmmaking competition is now up on the rhl for all to see. We made a few changes to it, mostly taking out some embarrassing mistakes that we didn't notice until we outputted to tape. But it's basically what was submitted and screened.
But you know what bugs me is that when you go to Subway, and you want a sandwich and chips, it costs the same as when you get it with a soda. So to feel like I'm getting my money's worth, I end up drinking a soda I don't want.
More as it comes.

Oops, we won
Last year we entered a competition called NYC Midnight, a filmmaking contest where you have two weeks to make a movie with a genre and topic of their choice, and then, in the second round, you have twenty-four hours. We made Open Spaces. We were runners up in the first round. We were decidedly bitter. This year, they added a screenwriting contest. Cas wrote a very funny script about penis enlargement spam, and I wrote a script about a guy who saves the world from destruction, but only to make people feel more guilty when he committed suicide. Cas placed, I didn't. We were decidedly bitter.
And then the filmmaking competition rolled around again. Cas stepped up to the plate and wrote False Alarm. We made it to the second round. The day of the second round approached, and we readied as best we could, but how much can you really prepare. We shot all day. I scored and Cas edited all night. The final output of the movie to tape put us both into hysterics. No, not because the movie was funny, it was, kind of. Not because we were delirious from sleep depravation, we were. But because we were so confident that we would lose. The latter half of the movie was like some kind of horrible fever dream. We rushed it in with fifteen minutes to spare, and I was convinced that we would not only lose, but we would be genuinely embarrassed at the screening the next day.
Well, as you may have gleaned from the title, we actually won. All told, we beat some hundred and forty filmmaking teams and a lot of movies that we both liked. The cast and crew cannot be thanked enough, if one of them hadn't been there, we couldn't have done it. For those of you waiting to see it, the movie will be posted on the rhl as soon as we take out some of the more embarrassing edits that we didn't have time to fix.
Long and short of it is, with our friend Jon Togo becoming a regular on CSI Miami, and my friends and former bandmates, The Bravery becoming international rock stars, it's nice to have a little pat on the back saying, hey, you're not doing that bad, Will.
