I am hosting a 5 week series of “Deviant Animation” at the Sie Film Center.
Saturday nights at 10 p.m. from April 16-May 7 we will show:
Fritz the Cat (4/16)
Fantastic Planet (4/23)
Heavy Traffic (4/30)
Heavy Metal (5/7)
Come early (starting at 9 p.m.) for coloring contests each week and free 11×17 posters for the first 50 people!
Then on Friday, May 13th, Belladonna of Sadness begins a short run.
It was a Japanese deviant animation from 1973 that garnered an X rating, but was never released in America.
Trailers, tickets and info at DenverFilm.org
These are features with very “adult” themes and animations – not for everyone!
Untitled is a monthly (the last Friday) evening program at the Denver Art Museum.
There are tours with unlikely guides, performances, demos, discussions…
I was asked to guest-curate the event in May, 2016!
The theme I was given is “Rising Sun” and it’s during the current Samurai exhibit.
It was a Japanese-inspired popstravaganza!
Several of us are sickened to hear about the almost daily terror attacks, and that people are scared to leave the house, or glued to the TV, while the news repeats the same things over and over. Artists, performers and other creatives have always been at the forefront in trying to get people out and active. I am helping some friends activate this with some upcoming events n town, and a bigger movement as well.
December 11-13 there will be several events around 13th and Sherman in Denver. On Friday, 12/11, starting a 6 p.m. a CHAIN LINK fence will be erected outside City O’City, so that people can use it as an active memorial for those injured or killed in recent terrorist acts – across the world, and in our own back yards. This will be up all weekend – so bring out something to pou on the fence and lets link our support of those around the world.
Sunday, 12/13 from 2-10 p.m. at Deer Pile (upstairs from City O’City) will have performers, musicians and more to share their talents in the name of fighting fear.
So far Cristofer Lix, Whitney Rehr, Roseanna Frechette and the bands Firstimers and also Dr Death + Mr Vile are confirmed!
Read Cristofer’s manifesto here: linkdenver.org and Facebook event page
I have two pieces in the Vote Every Day exhibit at Denver Art Museum.
[Hub space, 3rd floor of Hamilton Building]
It’s part of the Warm Cookies of the Revolution Creatives in Residence exhibit.
Come see my “Bling” voting machine and an actual Florida voting machine from the “hanging chad” election of 2000!
Saturday, November 7th at 3 Kings Tavern
I made pinball-related snacks for this weird and scary pinball tournament.
This will be the wildest Halloween ever!
Itchy-O is a 32+ piece marching band with tons of drummers (including taiko!), electronics, noise and other instrumentation.
They surround the audience, weaving throughout, creating unique aural experiences for each observer.
Remember Crash Worship? This is better.
I’ll be doing a mystery PowerPoint presentation and…?????
With a lot of help, I’m running a zombie-themed ramen shop at Zombie Zone at Denver Pavilions on Saturday, October 17th from noon-6 p.m.
My Fukuoka-style raman yatai stand will be near 16th & Glenarm (16th St. Mall in Denver)
This is during Denver Zombie Crawl – come on down!
There will be amazing ramen (vegetarian and pork options) with edible body parts…
AND Dessert Ramen! (red-hot-cinnamon!)
Saturday, October 24th at Mercury Cafe
I’ll be doing a GetYourGoing PowerPoint presentation about a mystery topic (and with a special guest!)
…opening for Denver Broncos U.K. (DBUK), which is members of Slim Cessna’s Auto Club, in an entirely different project.
It’s their album release party, and also Ted Thacker’s The Red Tack is playing.
9:30 p.m. $15 at the door
Mercury Cafe is at 22nd and California St. – Downtown Denver.
My talk is called The Life and Times [or not] of Schrodinger’s Cat.
Sure, it’s a metaphoric example of quantum physics, but what does the cat think about it?
