Electrick Children.

My sister/friend, Becca Lou, is making a movie. I suspect it will be a great movie, because she is passionate, and a great filmmaker. I also know the cinematographers and several of the actresses (plus one actor), and can vouch for them as well.

Here she is, one week after moving to Manhattan for Columbia film school!

Here is a movie poster!

Here is the kickstarter, where you may learn more about the movie and send spare change, to make it even more of a success!

I helped work on this exhibit, the very tiniest, little bit. Mainly editing preproduction things and a few of the narratives within the catalog. I also spent at least one night installing the art inside the space. (Who knew hanging art on walls could be so hard?)

The theme of the exhibit is a little tricky for me to describe, but deals with time, space, architecture, film, other medias, and interactivity. I recommend watching the promotion below for a clearer idea. The show boasts over 100 pieces of art from over 50 artists--some of whom have awards. Academy Awards. (And likely other kinds.)

If you (yes, you), happen to live in the LA area (or happen to be visiting), you should come to the opening this Thursday, May 26. Or at least check out the website.

There will be yummy treats to boot.

Hymn 101.

This song was so beautiful live, it made me cry.

I've come from down the road.
And my footsteps never slowed.
Before we met, I knew we'd meet.
Before we met, I knew we'd meet.

And I've come here to ignore your cries and heartaches.
I've come to closely listen to you sing.
I've come here to insist, that I leave here with a kiss.
I've come to say exactly what I mean.
And I mean so many things.

Dance Yrself Clean.

Who: S and maybe 10 to 14 others.
What: Dance Painting. (And Scratchboarding. And Spin Art.)
Where: Somewhere in the vast expanses of LA. (Heaven knows I do not know the name of the place.)
When: Last Friday.
Why: For fun!!!! (And a much needed break from philosophy paper writing.)

It was a most magical night, filled with many more beautiful and delightful things, such as crepe eating, new friendship forming, and dancing around a smallish room, while painting on paper, walls, and people (all sadly un-photographed). Let your imaginations run wild, and in the meantime, enjoy my humble art made pre and post dancing. It might make me overly proud--likely because it is the first art I have created since I was a (middle school) child.

And the winner is...

Blurry Spencer, drawing...

Blurry (and poorly lighted) winner: Cumorah! 

To her (the soon to be owner of Shabby Apple women's dress, Spanish Steps) I give my warm congratulations, and to everyone else I give my (still warm) apologies.

Happy Mother's Day, to all of the lovely mothers in my life.

Shabby Apple Giveaway Extravaganza.

Once upon a time, a woman from my favorite women's dress boutique emailed me that she liked my blog, and asked if I would be interested in hosting a giveaway. They provide the Shabby Apple dress free of charge, and I provide the lucky reader who gets to win it. While I am not interested in advertising things, I am interested in recommending things, especially those things I like (i.e., books and food), and I like Shabby Apple. This love of recommending probably stems from the library scientist in me. Either way, I wrote back a resounding yes.

Here I am, liking one of my favorite Shabby Apple dresses the day I became a Master,

and then another the day Hedi got married.

Here is the dress you may win:
It is called Spanish Steps and is from one of their newest Spring collections. If you are interested, leave a comment (or two, or three), and I will do some sort of drawing on May 8th, before posting again with the results. Good luck!

Parking tickets will be the death of me.
