Filmmaker Joe G is most known for being the genius behind Globe’s incredible film pantheon. He is always dressed in black, bearded and regarded as a 16mm shooting, celluloid man of mystery. We have been known to have extravagant wine bouts filled with Italian food and beautiful waitresses, and during one of these recent bouts, we got to talking about his automatic email responses that he sets up whenever he leaves town (or sometimes when he doesn’t). They are simply amazing. And they make whatever trivial things you were emailing him about seem so bland and serious. And while they are fun to read, the most alarming part is that they’re mostly real.

Read one below, and check the rest of the gold in What Youth Issue 12, out now.

JOE G: This is when we went to meet the mysterious Alan Van Gysen in Mozambique while filming for Strange Rumblings.

Hello friend,

As you’ve heard of course, we have embarked on an adventure deep into the DARK CONTINENT in our relentless quest to discover SHANGRI LA. We have chased the dream to the far side of the “the motherland” and our crew of rebels, renegades, weirdos and geeks shall not return until we find glory in the form of crystal blue cylinders. Given the confidential and dangerous nature of this mission I am forced to remain “untethered” to the conventions and norms of modern society. We MUST blend in or we will raise suspicion. While checking emails may seem like a pedestrian and unnoticeable behavior in the civilized world, here it could result in blown cover, which would trigger a ripple effect that could seriously jeopardize — if not destroy the entire mission.

Thank you for understanding the gravity of this situation and please forgive my complete lack of response.

Don’t worry. We are going to be OK. But for now, radio silence from our end is an absolute necessity.

If you should need to reach me urgently for any reason please leave word with “GADDY,” the senior masseuse at the famed INTERCONTINENTAL HOTEL in JOHANNESBURG, SOUTH AFRICA. From her suite on the 8th floor she will signal our pilot “CAESAR,” who is standing by on the runway below the hotel. He will then deliver your message to me in person when he makes his bi-weekly supply air drop of TIPO TINTO RUM and BILTONG to our outpost located 2 hours away by air.
Or you can text me on my INTERNATIONAL SATELLITE PHONE MACHINE at +310-555-5555.
If all else fails and you require immediate assistance please contact ALLIE TRAPANI at Globe and she will liase directly with CAESAR or myself.

peace be the journey,

joe g
