Hello Midnight in the Desert Listeners!

Screen Shot 2016-05-03 at 10.55.57 AMI had a great time talking nightmares with Heather. You guys are really cool and I liked talking to the people who called in. Thanks for visiting my site. If you want, email me at adam.bulger@gmail.com. I’ll take your questions seriously and answer as best as I can.

Mr. Bulger Cuts for the Dream

I talked film editing with master Hollywood scene cutter Norman Hollyn for Van Winkle’s. We talked at length about the opening scene of Fellini’s 8 1/2 and the ’80s high school dark comedy Heathers, which Hollyn edited. Click on Joseph Gordon-Levitt to get to the story.
