Soul on the Corner cover and pre-order

We finally have news about Martin and Eddie Piller’s new compilation album: “Martin Freeman and Eddie Piller present Soul on the Corner”.

Let’s get to what most of us were waiting for and that is the album cover! This beautiful blue wall contrasts perfectly with Martin and Eddie’s matching outfits. A simple design and color palette that reminds us of the Blue Notes Records cover designs.

Newsletter available again.

After having to move servers, we are now able to offer the newsletter again which we had to discontinue due for technical reasons. Since most of the subscribers come from 2017 (last year was mostly closed), we would like to know if you are still interested in this possibility. We received a number of emails regarding it during the first half of 2018 but we couldn’t tell at the time when it was going to become available.

So, please contact us, or leave a message here or in any of our social media accounts to let us know if you are interested in subscribing to our newsletter with updates we add to the site.

Ode to Joy Premieres in Festival

Ode to Joy is set to premiere in Sedona Film Festival next February 26 on the main stage and again on March 3.

Unfortunately, we still don’t have a poster but some seconds of the film thanks to the steadycam operator publication on their vimeo account. Check out the link for some more.

More of the plot that we’ve already covered can be read on the festival film page, transcribed below. No actor nor cast members were announced to be present during the premiere nor interviews:

Martin Freeman (The Hobbit) has fallen in love and can’t get up. A man’s fervent attempts at subverting happiness once it begins to cause him bouts of narcolepsy are put to the ultimate test when he falls in love.

How does a man who is — literally — paralyzed by happiness find love? Thanks to a condition called cataplexy — a rare disorder that causes him to lose control of his muscles whenever he is overcome by strong emotion, particularly joy — Brooklyn librarian Charlie (Martin Freeman) has learned to carefully edit all delight-triggering people, places, and events out of his life. Family weddings, cute babies, adorable puppies, and, yes, romance are all fraught with peril in Charlie’s carefully managed world. But when the beautiful, spontaneous Francesca (Morena Baccarin) falls for him, the risk-averse Charlie finds himself at a crossroads: suppress his feelings of attraction, or take a chance and let love in?

Based on a true story originally featured on This American Life, “Ode to Joy” is a hilarious and touching look at what happens when we stop being afraid and let ourselves truly live.
