Hey Ya’ll! Working on some new stuff! As a result, I’ll be pausing the Thinkpierce posts for roughly 3 months. When the Thinkpierce posts return, get ready for hillbilly teeth, dreadlocks, British mechanics, and more. See ya in about Three months…until then jump over to amazon.com and watch Thinkpierce’s movie, Annihilation Celebration! Thinkpierce, Films and Books by Jonathan Pierce.
When I learned that Kent Meister would be visiting Tulsa for Christmas break, it didn’t take me long to take advantage of the opportunity. After various visits to thrift stores, I was able to come up with replica costumes from a movie I had made over 10 years ago named Cai Chi. Sitting down in an esteemed interview, Kent and I ad-libbed answers to a variety of questions about making the Cai Chi movie. The footage will be combined with the release of the Cai Chi Movie in the Fall of 2013. Special thanks to videographer and photographer Valerie Grant for working behind the scenes to make it all happen. Thinkpierce, Something New Every Friday!
One day I set up three tables outside my apartment that held bowls of eggs, heads of lettuce and tomatoes. Then I invited 10 friends over to throw them at me while I ran down the stairs of my apartment and got it on video featuring music by And There Stand Empires. There’s basically no other way to describe it. Enjoy! Thinkpierce, Something New Every Friday!
Today’s video revisits the Captain Robert play that I wrote in High School showing a scene called, “The Lunch I Brought.” Thinkpierce, Something New Every Friday!
Jonathan Pierce performs an “ad-lib” playing the role of an unlikely hiring manger. Sit back and relax as Jonathan explains the importance of filling out an “app”. The story behind this video is simple. One day I was visiting the guys of the beef baloney TV show at the “beef baloney house.” Before long I was handed a silver wig, a hockey jersey and a clipboard, and then heard, “Go!” And hence, the “App” video was born.

It was the Saturday morning event I had been looking forward to all month, a special gathering where the guys and I could just relax over a meal straight off the grill. After slicking back my hair with Palmolive, I ran over my checklist to make sure everything was packed for the big outing. Hot dogs; check, egg crates; loaded, party grill; packed, hair combed; done, ironed shirt and crimped dress slacks; ready. Yep, I was ready. I thundered up my limited edition Grand Marquee, and swooped up Paul and Spencer. Read More
I don’t know what it is about laying eyes on a snow covered back alley that would make someone consider setting up an amp guitar combo and do a photo shoot in their long johns, but if your name happens to be Jonathan Pierce at that moment, it’s basically a no brainer. That’s pretty much all it took to inspire this “heavy metal meets lumber jack Mcquack” snow shoot. Daniel Sutliff manned the camera as I proceeded to take the photos of my life. But don’t take my word for it. Deep-sea dive in to the new “Lumberjack Mcquack” photo shoot and see for yourself. Thinkpierce! Something new Every Friday.
This week’s entertainment proves that there really is no method to the madness when it comes to Thinkpierce photo shoots. In this case, it all started with an arctic drive through downtown Tulsa one day in January. As I half drove and half slid through the black ice, I came upon a snow-covered patch of land that had a great view of downtown Tulsa. I decided I needed to check it out. After sloshing in to a nearby parking spot, I walked around the space a bit and started to realize what was about to happen… a new Thinkpierce photo shoot. In that moment three things came in to focus in my mind, an old school TV, lawn chairs and RC Cola. But items like that couldn’t be celebrated alone. Oh no, a photo shoot like this demanded a dynamic duo. It wasn’t difficult to decide who would be the perfect person to call either, Brian Spratt of course. Read More
One day it became apparent to me that I had never really given the color lime green the attention it deserved. That realization birthed an idea for a new Thinkpierce photo shoot like none before. At the time I was living downtown in a 1-bedroom apartment that rented out monthly for the same cost of most people’s electric bill. Like many apartments in my price range, I had one of those unspoken agreements with my landlord that any repairs or upkeep in the apartment were up to me, which worked out great. I lived there for over 6 years and loved it. An agreement like that meant my apartment wasn’t in the best shape, but it also meant the creative control of the “updates and repairs” were up to me. This scenario was ideal because it meant that my living room could be transformed in to the location of my new photo shoot idea! Read More
