Okay, here’s how we can all see insane June in her video debut

Michael the filmmaker emailed me. Go to http://www.cinehead.com. Click on Work, then click on Motion. You will see a bunch of his movies listed, but mine is the one on the right on top, with the title "Kodachrome." There's a photo of a guy wearing a fez in the movie you want.

  1. Finally got around to watching this. Loved it. June, you talk like you write, in the sense that you always seem to be having a conversation with yourself in your head at the same time as you’re talking to us, and every now and then bits of it pop out. Also expected the gravelly voice!

  2. I just have to tell pendy that the man in the trailer with June would not fall in love with her.
    I thought the trailer was lovely, and would like to see the film. You did not look at all insane!

  3. Ok, June, I’m so sorry, I wasn’t going to say anything, because I didn’t want to offend, but I just read through the rest of the comments and I have to say, I thought your voice would be deeper, too! Not in a manish way, but definately in a congested, I’ve-got-a-cold way…you know, since you always think you’re sick.

  4. June! you’re famous! and they didn’t let Marvin speak at all? If I didn’t know better, I would have thought that crazy guy with the slides was Marvin they way they kept showing you and Marvin then that guy speaking…I also love their description, “the unusual people that collect them” that’s uplifting, isn’t it? I think I will have to see the whole thing, I wonder if it will be available on Netflix?

  5. Oh. My. God. Your voice. Is PINK! That’s the only way to describe it.
    Why was everyone expecting a whiskey baritone, I want to know!

  6. Mom of Hyphens, I thought the same thing. I don’t even remember saying that about him. I did that interview one day after I had some outpatient surgery. Maybe it wasn’t the wisest idea.

  7. It’ll be priceless when your ex-boyfriend sees the documentary and knows you told the world he’s weird.
    The bra strap was completely fashionable.

  8. Hahah everyone thought you would have a man voice. I’m sorry. That’s really funny.

  9. Don’t you know that showing your underwear is in style these days? You are so stylish!
    That man in the trailer with you (not the mobile home trailer but the documentary trailer) would fall in love with me. I have about four thousand slides of family pictures (mine, not strangers) from around 1950 through the sixties. My dad was Army so we’ve pictures of the drive to California (painted desert, Vegas, Grand Canyon), lots of DC, Panama, and other places. Be assured there are many weirdly dressed people. I would have already posted many of them but my ding dang (thank you for bringing that back into my vocabulary) scanner has forgotten how to scan slides.

  10. I MUST see the movie. It sounds too fun. I guess what surprised me was that, after seeing umpteen million pictures of you on the blog, I don’t think I would have recognized you in the movie. But what a neat hobby. It has always made me sad to go to estate sales where they are selling off personal things like photo albums; it sort of makes their lives seem less valued. But now I see that those albums were just looking for the right people (like you) to appreciate them. Somewhere Norma and Vern are smiling.

  11. Just when I didn’t think I could love you anymore you go and give us this. OMG June I am loving you more everyday. Tell Marvin that a crazy old lady in California is in love with you.

  12. I just spent an hour and a half and three computers trying to get that ding-dang movie clip to work, and I was finally successful.
    Worth every second to see you put flowers on her grave. I howled. Appropriately and respectfully, of course.

  13. We are all of like minds. I, too, thought June’s voice would be deeper, a bit gravelly and with a Brooklyn accent. I guess we all think she is a chain smoking, whiskey drinking girl secretly from New York, Dammit.

  14. I’m okay hearing your voice. Before I watch, I want to know if your real name is revealed. That would be too much for me. Someone revealed Marlboro Man’s real name and it took some of the… I don’t know, mystery out of it.

  16. I (like every other reader) had to go see “June in real life” to get a glimpse of what’s beyond Bye Bye Pie June, and I think that film says a lot about the filmmaker. Just not sure what… I (unlike every other reader) expected your voice to be more nasal, but probably what it boils down to is you just have a great voice! Why should we all be surprised? Because people who are funny always have to speak in funny voices? And I would say those are natural curls in your hair, not frizz. Great volume!

  17. That was hilarious!!! I’m posting that to share on my blog. Eventually. It’s been a while since I’ve blogged, but a link to that is so going up!
    “I had an old boyfriend… he was weird.” That is so exactly you (in other words, you talk like you write)! I wish I could have coffee with you or be a co-worker. Everyone needs a little June in their life, I think.

  18. You are adorable! Thank you for sharing this with us. NOW…I believe you when you say you have a thing for all things pink. Apparently our voices are an important piece of the puzzle.

  19. Great trailer! Let us know how to find the full documentary. I hope you get a chance to correct the errant apostrophe on the website and in the text of the trailer.
    I think an essay on the proper use of the apostrophe is in order.

  20. Too bad about the bra strap, but you don’t sound crazy at all!
    So awesome to hear your voice – I thought it would be deeper too, but I’m not surprised it reminds me a wee bit of the movie Fargo. And I mean that in the nicest way! 🙂

  21. In my first year of college, I worked for the university archives, and they were throwing out some old photos, so I took them and decorated my room with them. They were my muse for my freshman creative writing class, even! That was the first I’d ever heard of putting a bottle of lemonade in the creek to keep it cool for the picnic. See, you’re not crazy…there is much to be learned from old photos of people we don’t know!

  22. I loved it! Junie June, what I want to know is this: If you contacted Norma and Vern’s kinfolk, why didn’t they want these albums for their own families? Why were they up for sale in the first place?
    I really do love it that you and Marvin share a hobby and passion together. My great-aunt Bea and her husband my great-uncle Otto were like that. They did so many fun things together all their married life. They polished rocks, which led to better rocks which led to jewelry making, they traveled all over the world. And they were such great friends to each other. He even sat in the mall holding her purse and all her bags while she tried on every single ring and every shoe in the department stores.
    I hope you and Marvin have as many good, wonderful years and experiences together as my Aunt Bea and Uncle Otto did.

  23. I was just going to say the same as Laura! I was surprised at how girly your voice is, probably because your humour is like my aunt’s and every sentence is finished with a smoker’s throated cackle.

  24. I just took a look! I got a kick out of hearing your voice. For some reason I had imagined that you would sound like a Jersey or Brooklyn girl, even though I know you’re from Michigan! You don’t look insane at all!
    I once bought a huge, portrait photo of a woman from the 1800’s that I found at Goodwill. It had a couple of names written on the back and I came home and spent several days on the computer trying to piece together this woman’s history. Didn’t have much luck, but I was immersed in the process.
    I think it’s great that Marvin shares this passion with you. I think my husband was probably secretly thinking I had a screw loose!
