Joey Spiotto's High Fidelity

Joey Spiotto is one of our favorite pop culture artists. We’ve featured his work countless times over the years, from contributions he has made to various gallery shows to his own ongoing Storytime art shows turning your favorite movies and TV shows into Golden Books. In fact, his Storytime shows were so popular that he collected dozens of them into a book last year, and all of his fans helped fund the project to make it happen.

Now Joey Spiotto needs out help again as he sets out to collect all of the artwork from his ongoing High Fidelity series into a new book. Similar to his Storytime artwork, this series features adorable illustrations of familiar movies and TV shows, but presented in the style of album artwork vintage children’s records, creating bands based on the likes of Back to the Future, Stranger Things, Firefly, Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones, Harry Potter, Ghostbusters and more. Find out how you can help fund this project and get your own book after the jump. Read More »

Director Stephen Frears and writer D.V. DeVincentis are teaming up for another project, which seems to have some similarities to the John Cusack-starring hit, High Fidelity. The two are adapting the upcoming Beth Raymer memoir, Lay the Favorite, Take the Dog, which will be released this spring. The adaptation will simply be titled Lay the Favorite.

The dramedy concerns a thirty-something woman who falls in with a crowd of older math geeks that have figured out how to game the sportsbook system in Vegas. Says DeVincentis, “It’s a less violent, less sketchy version of the mob. This is the version of 50-year-old math geeks from Queens in basketball shorts who have pet guinea pigs.”
