BLOOD, SWEAT & TEARS

BLOOD, SWEAT & TEARS

Twenty seven years ago, Cassius “Money” Hargrove, a fourteen year-old freshman from New Brunswick, NJ, broke Highland Park High School’s (and my) heart with his cold-blooded game-winner in the Central Jersey Group 1 championship. The story of that game and the racial and socio-economic issues that seethed just below the surface is the subject of my new […]


What Would Your Dog Do For A Nutrident?

What Would Your Dog Do For A Nutrident?

Check out my first foray into the world of user generated, viral advertisements, this one for Nylabone’s “What Would Your Dog Do For A Nutrident?” campaign. They say never work with kids or animals, but had a blast working with both on this one. More clips to follow as soon as they’re released…


VANISHING POINT

For more about Vanishing Point, check out the NPR RADIO DRAMA or the ROLE-PLAYING GAME for MICROSOFT. We’re approaching the twentieth anniversary of the first radio broadcast of “Vanishing Point,” an event made possible by DJ Mark Garber of Surf 107.5 in Wilmington, NC. Mark has now moved on to NPR’s New York City affiliate […]


IN MEMORY OF CLEON

Just got turned onto this deleted scene from one of my favorite movies of all-time, “The Warriors.” This one features the character with arguably the largest quotient of enduring baddassness per second of screen-time in the history of film: Cleon, the ill-fated leader of Coney Island’s toughest gang. Though we’ll never know for sure whether […]


VANISHING POINT

VANISHING POINT

In honor of the marriage of one Bradford Costello to his lovely wife Vanessa just prior to the New Year, I wanted to post a few clips of the man who single-handedly inspired our multimedia project “Vanishing Point.” As the story goes, Brad and I went to middle-school together, and hadn’t seen each other for […]


The Seems South Korea

The Seems South Korea

Just got this image for the cover of the South Korean edition of the Split Second, and love it. Hoping to put together a new student lesson plan for this book as well, but in the meantime, would love to hear from any Seems fans in Seoul or beyond…


Frogman

Just realized one of the music videos I made a few years back didn’t make it onto the site, so I thought I’d throw it up here. It’s Frogman by Billy, one of my favorite bands to come out of the New Brunswick music scene. My good friend and former roommate John Erbrecht is no […]


Vanishing Point Radio Online

Vanishing Point Radio Online

Just wanted to give the heads up that I finally managed to make all the episodes of my old radio drama “Vanishing Point” available online. Recorded in Wilmington, NC, the show was originally syndicated on college and indy radio-stations nationwide, then later picked up by both National Public Radio and XM Radio. Back in the […]


All-State Basketball

All-State Basketball

Just wanted to give props to a new series of basketball clinics being run by two NJ legends whom I’ve been lucky enough to play with over the years. Piscataway’s John Celestand is a former All-American with Villanova and the owner of an NBA Championship ring with the 2000 Lakers, while Mars Mellish of New […]


Der Schein Book 3

Der Schein Book 3

Just wanted to share the new cover for the German edition of “Lost Train of Thought.” As far as I can tell, their title translates to “Missing In No Man’s Land,” but they can call it whatever they want if Joachim Knappe keeps coming up with covers this great…


Layup Drill

Never quite understood why this clip from “Who Got Next?” received so many hits, but since this website is new, wanted to take another opportunity to honor the legendary Lunnearl Summers, the best passer I ever had the opportunity to play with. And as you can see, not a bad shooter as well….


Best New Ad Campaign

Heard some hilarious radio spots for Amdro Quick Kill yesterday, about the joy of murdering fire ants, and found this great clip on YouTube. Having nearly been eaten alive in a field in Texas, not to mention being under annual assault by their carpenter brethren, I can surely relate…


Meeting Grandpa

Meeting Grandpa

These pics are from the first trip of my children Jack and Maddie to see the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall in Washington, D.C.What you don’t see is them complaining about how hungry they are or how they want to go home, but a pretty sweet experience to introduce them to Jack Hulme nonetheless…


Poland Spring

Best Story I’ve ever heard about sneaking into a gym when you absolutely positively have to get a run… Who Got Next? — Poland Spring from John Hulme on Vimeo. From Who Got Next?

Just wanted to thank you for coming to this site. It went up a few hours ago, so if you get the chance, take a buzz through and let me know if you notice any glitches, spelling mistakes, dead ends, or any other embarrassing stuff. Otherwise, Happy Passover, and hope you enjoy… John


Original Unknown Soldier trailer

Thought you might enjoy this, which I haven’t watched in quite some time until just now. Thanks to Rich Campbell for his usual editorial mastery, and Uncle Tupelo for the song that always seemed to be the movie’s theme song…


Cruel But Fair

Cruel But Fair

Stuart Wexler and I have known each other since we were twelve-years old and rode our bikes to the US1 Flea Market to buy comic books every weekend, and our relationship is pretty much the same now as it was then. But we both shared a love of the New Brunswick, NJ music scene of […]


Der Schein

Der Schein

Not that I don’t love the original covers that adorned the American versions of The Seems, but I have to give some props to Joachim Knappe, who did the cover illustrations for the German editions of “The Glitch In Sleep” and “The Split Second.” Can’t wait to see what he comes up with for Book […]
