Toke is Cheap, the short film Tim filmed in Vancouver back in March of 2018, will have its US premiere at the Long Island International Film Expo on Monday, July 15, 2019! It was directed by Kerry van der Griend and co-stars Emmett Ford, Lisa Durupt, and Mary J. Eden.

If you want to check it out, it’s showing during block 3 (the 7:30-9:30pm block) at Bellmore Movies, 222 Pettit Avenue in Bellmore, NY. Check this link for more info and to buy tickets.

The film will also be shown at the Stony Brook Film Festival in Stony Brook, NY, on Sunday, July 21, 2019. It’s paired with the feature film Above the Clouds and will be showing at 9:30pm at the Staller Center for the Arts at Stony Brook University.

Five Years of Team DeKay!

Five years ago today, two big fans of Tim DeKay launched a small fansite for him. At the time, there were no other active fansites for Tim – the few that had once existed were either deserted or hacked. We knew Tim and his fans deserved better, and we hoped we could fill those shoes.

We had high hopes for the site, but I’m not even sure we could have envisioned all of the wonderful things that have happened over the past five years! There have been new roles for Tim, professional and personal milestones, and even a successful charity fundraiser.

Thanks so much to all of you for sticking with us on this journey, and thanks to Tim, Elisa, Jamis, Danna, and their extended family and friends for their support and encouragement. All of you are awesome!

We look forward to seeing what the future brings!

I also added an album for miscellaneous photos from 2019 (mostly from social media) – I’ll be adding albums for previous years as well.

Hope all of you are having a great 2019 so far!

Tim on HBO’s Ballers

More news – I’m finally getting to post about this one! I’d originally heard that Tim was supposed to make an appearance on an episode of HBO’s Ballers back in August, but HBO never got back to my request for more info, and it wasn’t available on their website, on IMDb, etc. I didn’t want to post about it without knowing which episode, and unfortunately, the info wasn’t available until after the episode aired. Frustrating doesn’t even begin to cover it.

I found out today that it actually aired last Thursday, but it’s still available to stream on HBO’s website. It’s episode 7 of the current season (four), and Tim plays Todd Richardson. I’ve posted a few of my own quick captures on Instagram, and I’ll post a couple below, but we’ll have Ara’s much better caps available in the gallery soon!

ViewPoint Movie and Screencaps

ViewPoint, a short film starring Tim, Nick Thurston, Montana Roesch, and Amy Schloerb, is now available on demand on HBO and HBO Go! The release was a bit of a surprise to all of us, Tim included, but we’re excited that we get to see this one! It’s available through July 15, so be sure to check it out soon.

I won’t spoil anything, but I’ll say that it’s a very short film (8 minutes) and is an interesting commentary on something with which so many in society are currently obsessed. I enjoyed it, though I wish they’d had more time – I could easily have watched more of this!

Also, screencaps have been added to the gallery, courtesy of Aragarna!

Enjoy, and let us know what you think of the movie!
