Digital Underground #1: Line Of Duty

(Joshua Gilmore-Staff Writer)

Nowhere California has a history of looking at every side of the street when it comes to movies, we will watch the tent pole blockbusters and we will take the road less travel to find those hidden gems. This mentality developed into the on going series of “Why Not?” episodes of the podcast and the evolution will continue into our digital underground.

The world is in a crazy place and some outlets are hard to find, so within the walls of this article we will hopefully point you in the direction of a movie that might not make it to your radar. This column will be on going and will point you in the direction of where to find these selections, but for now, it’s time to enter the underground with our first selection.

Line Of Duty was released in 2019, directed by Steven C. Miller and written by Jeremy Drysdale. The film follows police officer Frank Penny (played by Aaron Eckhart) Penny goes from his normal beat into a rogue world, when he goes into a personal investigation into the abduction of the police chief’s young daughter. During the early stages of Frank’s investigation, he crosses path with internet reporter Ava Brooks (played by Courtney Eaton) who becomes his unwanted sidekick as she streams his actions to the web.

This movie blends the action world into the modern era of social media where anyone can be a reporter, with the possibility of putting their bodies on the line in the name of news. It is easy to look past this movie as the typical rogue cop movie, but the production and cast breath important life into a film that could be easily lost in the streaming shuffle.

It would be easy to fall into the normal movie review checklist, but I would like to stand with this recommendation and open our doors for your feedback. The links below will lead you to the different ways you can watch this movie and we would love for you to tell us your thoughts about Line Of Duty…

NowhereCalifornia.com Reaches Its First Year..

(Joshua Gilmore- Staff Writer)

It started one year ago today, this site was launched and took the concept of Nowhere California to a whole new level.

Nowhere California started in 2011 and it was just another conversation between two friends, but these conversation started taking place in front of a microphone and unleashed on the internet. It was as simple as that, but as Nowhere California evolved, the team grew and new accomplishments were reach.

The episodes started to grow and the team ventured out of the Nowhere city limits, as they dove into the world of conventions and conducting interviews. It was with each accomplishment, the Nowhere California family stuck to their ideals of what they wanted to produce and not to become just another podcast.

It was that mindset that grew into this website and, as we mark our first year on the net, we want to simply say THANK YOU.

Thank you for following the journey of Nowhere California.

Thank you for listening to the original podcast and all of the other podcast that have sprung from this little idea.

Thank you for checking out this site

And thank you for continuing this adventure with us.

In the early planning stages of Nowhere California, the idea of conducting interviews was the furthest thought from our minds and at most a pipe dream. As time progressed, we started covering conventions and building connections. One of those connections grew from Josh’s fandom of a particular independent movie and the movie is “Grand Theft Parsons”

“Grand Theft Parsons” was released in 2004 and was based on the life of Gram Parsons or Gram’s afterlife to be exact. During Gram’s rise in the world of music, he made a pact with his roadie/best friend Phil Kaufman (played in the movie by Johnny Knoxville) that had to be fulfilled after one of their deaths. The pact was that the surviving friend would take the body of the deceased out to the desert and set their soul free. After Gram’s passing in 1973, Phil had to follow through with the promise and it wasn’t as easy as you think.

One of the major aspects on Nowhere California was the ability for Josh and Phil to talk about the things that are important to them, independent movies were at the top of the list and “Grand Theft Parsons” was an important part of that category.

An opportunity presented itself and Josh jumped at it. The opportunity was to talk with the writer of “Grand Theft Parsons”, Jeremy Drysdale and here is that conversation..

Also, if you are an avid Nowhere California listener, Phil and Josh recorded a special edition of “Why Not” to discuss this movie…
Why Not #11-Why Not Grand Theft Parsons?

As we are always prone to thank people a lot. We would like to send a huge thank you to Jeremy for this amazing conversation. It’s rare to meet someone that you respect and enjoy their work, it a whole different story when you get to talk to them. Thank you!
