This is a very neat video trailer that someone did basically making 'the Shining' into a romantic dramatic comedy. It looks really neat. I'd love to see that movie. Via Boing Boing.

In other news, talked to some friends tonight to see if there would be interest in doing a live art thing when Cloudwave Network finally does our live performance. Looks like there might be some interest. What I basically want to have happen is have some artists painting or sculpting or whatever to the music that we play for our event. Live art. Might have to be a gallery show, I suppose.

There was discussion the other night, and it looks like we're putting off the Autumn Chill live event until we feel a little more 'tight' as it were.

There's a possibility of some form of live laptop set on Bo's show, the Digital Earthquake, on KXUA sometime soon though. Which would be a blast.

Via BoingBoing, is this site about low tech solutions for artists interested in creating reactive or interactive environments. Pretty cool. Eventually I want to create an installation of circuit-bent toys and electronics that will interact with the audience. And be cool and pretty with lots of flashing lights and colors. I've been thinking about this in the context of a larger art show, and I think in that case I'd ideally like to build a Japanese style paper enclosure to immerse the audience member with the experience. Kind of a wooden mini-room with paper walls.
So, apparently Steven took some photos of one of our sessions. This set appears to be the Turkish Coffee Sessions. We seem to be naming our sessions after whatever caffeinated drinks I end up bringing. At least, that's the informal tradition that's developed so far. Can't last though. I'm running out of things to bring. Last week was soy chai, which somehow I've developed a taste for. I hate soymilk in coffee, but in tea it tastes great.
