Weisbecker’s Water Time

21 04 2010

In his third book, Can’t You Get Along With Anyone, Allan Weisbecker writes “No one who wants to make a movie out of my book is smart enough to get it done.” His first two books, Cosmic Banditos and In Search of Captain Zero, have been optioned by John Cusack and Sean Penn respectively. The way it looks now neither title will be on the big screen in the foreseeable future. It’s probably for the best. Unless Francis Ford Coppola signs on to direct the movie, it won’t be as good as the book. He’s the only director I can think of who can make a film better than the book it was based on.

 Which leads us to his latest endeavor—a self-produced film.

For more than two years Weisbecker of has been working on Water Time; Surf Travel Diary of a MadMan. The following is the first seven minutes of the movie. Some may call Allan Weisbecker crazy, but he should take that as a compliment. All great writers, at the very least, are a little bit crazy.

The Cohen brothers did a great job with “no country for old men”.

Randomrandomness from me…
Don’t know if it’ll get posted, but I just submitted this comment on the Serf-line Power Ranking, after getting no further than # 13:

“Dusty at 13? Because of one nearly blown, but salvaged maneuver?
Ian seems to eat up the hype more than the unaware masses… Problem is, he is both hype believer AND disseminator.”

Side note, am I the only one turned off by Dusty’s ass protrusion? His weird butt squat style is reminiscent of Stedman’s, but hearkens more toward the posture of a walker using octogenarian suffering severe osteoporosis.

But what does that matter? After all he’s a Volcom sponsored caucasian Kauaian Hawaiian Mod Col punter.

@Bobby
Oy vey. Instead of wasting your time with the power rankings (or this site) you should be reading In Search of Captain Zero.

I just pooped my pants, then hopped all over the house on my bum-bum, singing and asking for everyone to tell me how special I am and feed me honey yogurt.

In other words, I am Ian Cairns, writing the power rankings.

At least you’re honest Bagel….

Glad to see getting back to Nugable means Steve turns into Siskel or Ebert. I guess he’s proving that he’s crazy and therefor inferring he’s talented without overt claiming.

Poll question…. does anyone else find the culture surrounding wine fucking lame? Pretense, ceremony and blind rats describing sight… all for some grapes fermenting. In a swank Napa steakhouse tonight, I’ve never felt so proud to order a Bud.

Had to give up Coors when I realized Pete is a fucking Bush honk. YOu all may have noticed the stock dropping since I stopped patronizing the devil.

And why is weed illegal, but driving around the hillside after “tasting” rotten grapejuice is considered a vacation?

Alan Weisbecker rides a longboard poorly and is known to call himself the Lantern. Things that make you go Hmmmmmmm……..

Hey Nug, what about the german dudes that filmed their pilgrimage to the mythical Alan W????? Could Scorcese have done a better job? Maybe better editing? Or would have the score been superior if Danny Elfman was allowed to leave Tim Burton’s retainer? Enquiring minds want to know……

What an audio fucking nightmare! I hope elfman and burton retain each other in a legal impasse for all time!!!!!! fuck

@ Elwood….

Whatever 402’d means, it should refer to “hawaiian scales”. Why anyone judges wave heights from the back is ludicrous…. if you had caught the wave, you’d only know the face heights.

The whole bullshit is another faux macho pseudo tough guy, insecure, reactionary “straight” guy. You know, the guys in the Sunset lot who flex their muscles and intentionally massacre the English language proving who sounds the most stupid. Courtesy of the outdoor prison known as paradise.

But I accept your Ranch invitation, Elwood.

As for your gay molestation story…. sounds like an elaborate rationalization focused on the demons you try to resist. It’s ok Elwood, Mark has the same thing haunting him and he judges BACK….sides and pretends he’s a cali girl.

With a giant adams apple…..

In search of captain zero looks like a good read from the amazon trailers that i’ve read so far. I spent my childhood in center moriches NY, (didn’t surf yet, but you are absolutely surrounded by the sea). I’ll probably buy the book, and allen seems like a good guy. I don’t want to be the first guy that’s never “sinned” and start throwing rocks, but it’s tough to get past the guy’s smuggling days….just based on the first articles i read about him, having millions at one point. I don’t really know what the fuck i’m getting at here, I’ve been drinkin’ for christ sakes….I don’t know, we’re all supposed to but your books now??? what happened to the dope biz? Had a next door neighboor in CM that was murdered, come to find out years later….in that biz. shit. Like i said, i don’t know what the fuck i’m trying to say here. out.

ah fuck you guys. I want to bring it back to the movie shit. No one said a goddamn thing about the fucking COEN brothers! they rule, period. You catch that comma period joke right there?

The Coen Brothers do rule. But so does Cormac McCarthy.

All of the Weisbecker books are REALLY good, but the best one is the last one. “can’t you get along with anyone?” Just read that shit.

apologies all, I’ve had to work 2 days in a row and I’m pretty bitter…. hence the vinegar.

I’m even apologizing to Mark for revealing the secret he entrusted with me, that he is gay. May the lord guide him so that he can face his wife and family with such voluminous, empirical evidence stacked against him.

The “Mike Show” will be in SF Friday…. hope to see Lewis Samuels and Blasphemy Rottmouth at the opening. Free drinks and 6 to 1 women…. oh right, that probably excludes Peter Perfect, but Enoch will have an “inspired” time.

bark bark, I watched my dad, Mark, masterbate wearing a pulled aside g string while driving down highway 1 headed towards Blacks… will I be called as a potential witness in his divorce proceedings? bark bark.

bark bark, we got to the glider port and dad realized it was over 2 foot Peruvian scale and we high tailed it back to San Onofre where you judge waves by the “town” scale…. “Publics was waaaaaaay overhead today”, bark bark.

In surfing terms, ‘Cosmic Banditos’ remains one of the greatest works of literature to e’er be committed to parchment in these feeble days. In fact, that epic should be ensconced in an alabaster box, trimmed with an unmarked fatted calf’s goiter, and sealed with the soiled tampon rip-chord of Alana Blanchard. It should ne’er be read aloud – except by mute Ethiopian eunuchs through interpretive dance. It should be canonized in Cambridge by castratos crooning tunes penned by ‘The Cramps.’

Any naysayers shalt be thusly thrust through with a thresher made of Laird Hamilton’s sharpened and sentient belly-button lint and thricely stricken with a palsy that renders their impotent mouths defenseless to Peter’s Perfectly, and permanently tucked testicles.

Alliteration… it’s what’s for dinner.

Masturbation… it’s what I’ll be partaking in shortly, now that I’ve conjured the image of the soiled tampon pull-chain.

G’night.

Is Weisbecker the orginator of the Denim fad among elite surfers??

@Mike

You are not funny.

P.S. If you want to surf the best left in North America and don’t mind the theme to Jaws playing in your mind as you make the 500 yard paddle out through calm waters then leave Napa and head west to…..oh wait that’s right. I am not supposed to reveal secrets on the internet.

Scratch that. The waves suck in T_ma__s B_y.

And BTW Mike. I know that as long as you don’t cuddle afterwards you are not gay. But what if you did it because you were really broke? Are you still not gay?

Maybe you can cruise down to the Castro tonight and ask Post Surf Artie. He would know.

Or Warshaw.

@Elwood

One night when he was 16 Mark borrowed his Moms car sayin he would be home by 11. Then he and his buddy saw the Lane in the moonlight and realized it was GIANT so they drove 4 hours straight to the Ranch and started hikin up the tracks at about 3 a.m. all jacked up on whatever drugs were the rage back then.

They reached Little Drakes just past dawn and were greeted by mystical spinning 6 foot cylinders with no humans in sight.

After only an hour of surfing a huge truck pulled up on the beach and this beast of a man started throwin all their shit in the back and screamin at them in the line up. Mark and his friend rushed in and were confronted by none other than Ray” the Enforcer” Kunze of Malibu fame who, apparantly, was now employed as chief asshole Ranch guy.

He screamed that the tide was too high for them to have walked on the beach and no boats had launched so therefore they must have trespassed.

Anyway long story short Mark’s Mom was PISSED.
