Revisiting “Cowtown Keeylocko”

After graduating from The University of Arizona, I landed a dead-end job that I held onto until I found the courage (and opportunity) to move to Los Angeles. One day at work I was feeling especially apathetic, and a charming older man came in to the office and completely brightened my day. His name was Ed Keeylocko, and he had the type of joyful energy that could not be ignored.

For business reasons I needed his address, and he told me he lived in Cowtown Keeylocko, AZ. I had never heard of such a place before, so I asked him about it. He said it was his town, and as ridiculous as that may sound coming from someone, I knew he was telling the truth. This guy was special enough to have his own town.

After he left the office I decided to do a little research. Where is this Cowtown Keeylocko, and what’s this guys story? I typed his name into Google and found article after article, recounting the story of the man, the myth, the legend. How lucky was I that I got to meet him? In my search to find out more about Ed and his town, I found this short film on Vimeo. I immediately posted it on Catch*all, but after recently watching it again, I felt it needed to be re-posted.

Ed Keeylocko is a beautiful man with a beautiful story – please watch and share.
