Reviews for Out of Our Dens

"Truth be told that this documentary not only told the story of Richard and the Young Lions, their incredible 45's, and why Richard & the Young Lions got robbed out of a top 10 hit, but the story should also be mandatory viewing for all aspiring bands.

The story is factual but yet funny. You can laugh, and you can cry. When it's all over, you will know so much more about those cool 45's released by Richard and the Young Lions. You will know what it's like to be in a rock & roll band!"
-- 60's Music Radio Personality: Dave the Rave

"I thoroughly enjoyed this documentary. It is a powerful story, well told. The point -- that this music that RYL made together was strong enough, even after 30 years(!) to pull them back together and to get the ailing Richard Tepp out of bed in the morning, to keep him going and to make him willing to drive long distances just to play -- is very evident.

Director James Hannon's own love for the music and respect for RYL is also palpable in the way the story is told.

I love all the interviews; Hannon seems particularly adept at pulling vivid memories and sparkling stories from his subjects. Lenny Kaye, in particular, is so ON when interviewed for "Out Of Our Dens"! Kaye's insightful comments lend the movie a degree of oomph, clout and credibility.

Richard Tepp's untimely death just after completion of this film adds poignancy to the scenes of the reunited band joyfully resuming their 30-year-interrupted musical conversation.

For a real story of underdogs who get bad breaks left and right but simply refuse to give up, you just can't beat "Out Of Our Dens." An impressive directorial debut for James Hannon!"
-- Steve Elliott

Older History that's still kinda cool to keep around

8/19/2006 - Back to the Bronx - A Ducky Boy actor and a journal started!

Ducky-KonradSheehan-4Had an interview with Konrad Sheehan up in Van Courtlandt park yesterday.. Konrad played a Ducky Boy in the Wanderers and the leader of the Punks gang in the Warriors movie. He is also one of the nicest and down to earth people you could know.
Full details and pictures below in my new Journal feature.

I've been writing this stuff down in my personal files from the beginning, and decided to share some key documentary filming events with readers of my website. Hope you enjoy!

Cool in Your Code is a series on NYC-TV in the local New York area that covers fun things to do in a particular zip code (or more) in each of the 5 boroughs...

NYC-TV airs an episode of the show Cool in Your Code-The Bronx that covered the new changes to the Loew's Paradise Theatre in the Bronx.

A few pictures from my friend Raymond Ruiz & my trip to the Paradise were used in the episode and we have a credit there. Its always fun to have your work shown on TV - even if it only airs in the NYC area.. And thanks to Tivo, we have video footage of the Loew's Paradise segment for you!!!

Click here to see the Loew's Paradise segment in Quicktime MP4 format
-- Also viewable on your Video iPod! -- You can get Quicktime at www.quicktime.com

The pictures were taken from this gallery of pictures we have on the site:


On April 15th 2006, I went on the first official tour offered by Loew's Paradise since their renovation. And it looks magnificent! The Paradise was a I had only been to the Paradise in the 70's and 80's and back then it was a duplex and quad theater, and to see it now as i one huge theater/concert hall is something amazing. When i walked out on the top balcony and saw the hall for the first time, my breath was taken away!
Loew's Paradise Theater history from TheParadiseTheater.com:
