WBNK A full day of WBNK programming - WBNK stands for "Bryan 'N Kevin" Television; a fictitious television broadcaster I made up to "air" the homemade movies made by me and my brother, Kevin. WBNK is a collection of homemade movies and commercials in the style of Saturday Night Live and Second City TV. Two of the productions, The Crimson Brigade, and The Errand, are linked below.

The Crimson Brigade The Crimson Brigade (1979) - A home movie my brother and I made when we lived in West Germany. The name was a play on the 'Red Brigade', an Italian terrorist group active at the time. In the movie, terrorist Martini Crimson kidnaps millionaire Ambassador York for ransom. When the head of the Ambassador's security team absconds with the ransom money, Martini is forced to kill the Ambassador, a task he is unable to accomplish. Starring my life-long friend, George Davisson as York, Kevin Lawson as Martini, and I play the guard and executioner, and did the filming. (The Crimson Brigade is part of my "WBNK Project)).

The Errand The Errand (1982) - A home movie my brother and I made when we lived in Alabama. I remastered it in 2021. It features my first car, a 1963 Pontiac Bonneville convertible. The movie is about a father who goes to make breakfast and finds there is no milk in the fridge. He has a tantrum and orders his son to run a errand to get more milk. The plot is a little confusing because I play both the father and the son, and they're not well differentiated. The movie has three cameo appearances: My cousin Jeffrey plays the kid on a bicycle who gets run over, my cousin Rhonda plays my wife (in bed at the end), and our cat, Jammie is the cat pulled from under the hood when the engine won't start.

My Porsche My Porsche part I - In 2007, I bought an example of my dream car -- The Porsche 911. No one can argue that the 911 is not a classic automobile. The unique rear-engine sports car has been produced in essentially the same body style from 1964 to 1998. Here, I am backing my 1990 Porsche 911 Carrera C4 up the driveway and taking off for a drive.

My Porsche My Porsche part II - I wanted to get a feel for how it looked for others to see me in my Porsche, so here I am driving my 1990 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 Cabriolet with the top down, once around our church parking lot.

TMy trains My Trains - A favorite hobby of mine is repairing and operating toy trains. I have built a large-scale model train layout that I started around 2004, and have collected over a hundred train cars. When I found eBay, I went a little overboard on purchasing engines. It's a bit shocking how many engines I wound up with as this video shows.

The Cog The Cog - A two-minute British television ad produced by Honda in 2003 to promote the seventh-generation Accord. It follows the convention of a Rube Goldberg machine, conserving energy of motion in a continuous chain of colliding parts taken from a disassembled Accord. The full version of "Cog" took four days to film and was broadcast only a handful of times, and only in the United Kingdom, Australia, and Sweden. Despite its limited run, it is regarded as one of the most groundbreaking and influential commercials of the 2000s, and received more awards from the television and advertising industries than any commercial in history.

Spitfire Ad Spitfire Ad - In 1984, I bought a 1974 Triumph Spitfire from my friend George Davisson's dad (George appears in the home video The Crimson Brigade, above). It had a 1500cc engine, and wasn't very fast or reliable, but it was fun to drive. This ad for the Spitfire 1500 explains the need to not only stop fast, but to accelerate fast.
