We moved near Los Feliz. It's nice. Hardwood floors, high ceilings. Akina is an intern at Black Dragon Society, and I might be soon. I got a $2500 grant from the Alumni fund to make a movie about three kids raised in a cult who drive across the desert in an old volvo going to thrift stores. I'll probably be shooting on a Panasonic DVX-200. A notch below the HVX-200, but almost my ideal. I need to hammer down a schedule. And maybe script some of it. We are working on canvas totes in addition to all the other stuff that I haven't finished yet.
Tomorrow there is an opening at Black Dragon in Chinatown, as well as some other galleries. Come, it should be fun.
Also, Mike Mills sent me these links to five videos he made for the new Blonde Redhead album 23. They are some of the best videos I have ever seen. You will laugh, you will cry, you will not puke. This is not Wayne's World. Check them out and show all your friends.
This one has Miranda July doing one pose per second:
Blonde Redhead - Top Ranking
This one is incredibly visual:
Blonde Redhead - Silently
This one made me cry:
Blonde Redhead-The Dress
This one is beautifully subtle:
Blonde Redhead - Impure Hair
This one is a recut of Titanic:
Blonde Redhead - 23
Good stuff, no?
