bee keeping movie

I’m on Current TV, a fairly new media outlet. It is available in some places as a cable channel and is also a web site. Users send in pods, short movies/interviews/commentaries. A more focused YouTube in a way.

It is strange to read comments about yourself that aren’t exactly flattering.


  1. Excellent story on a lost art. I’m looking forward to someday making my way out to SF to try some tasty honey. I remember eating it at the apple farm when we were ol’ Greenland boys.

  2. Thanks for the positive feedback, L-rod. Maybe someday I’ll pull a jim kroitzch and move to a farm.

  3. Wow, I thought I was a lazy beekeeper, but the sight of your frames made me feel a lot better. Just kidding. That was a great film Jon. You are the coolest beekeeper. Tell that girl who thinks you can’t eat wax to learn to spell.

  4. “the lazy beekeeper” would be a good children’s book.

  5. I’m sorry but any movie about a beekeeper that doesn’t include him/her wearing a bee beard at some point is just incomplete.

  6. those people just don’t know that you actually eat all of that honey yourself. you never gave me any honey. and those jack-offs crackin’ wise, they just don’t know that you have a kind heart. it’s part pickled but it’s good. it’s like a part pickled mango. tangy out the outside and sweet in the middle…with a big stone inside.

  7. Some out of context quotes:

    “I’m sort of a slaveowner”

    “90% of them are females. I’m killing all these women here…then you get used to it.”

    “Just go with the veil today.”

    “They’re not killers.”

    “That’s gonna be so delicious. Except for that weird black thing in it.”

    I thought you were well behaved and genuine. By leaving in the B-roll portions (out takes) the director did manipulate that presentation though and I can see where some critics could get a mixed reading because of that. Was it about the bees or the man? I would have gone with the man and I think he wanted to. Ask him to do a series.

  8. Neat!

  9. You are a character. You deserve your own TV show, episodes about bees, dumpster diving, yard sales, the dump, it could go on and on, let’s make one about you being an mans man.
