First off, here’s an interview with John Swartz. He plays cello with us, and is an absolutely brilliant photographer. He’s also a weirdo. He sits in the very back of the van. It’s nice to finally hear him talk. http://no-alternative-daily.blogspot.com/2011/06/interview-series-3-john-michael-swartz.html Turns out he’s cool.
July 1-3- Gravity is screening at Fest Anca in Bratislava, Slovak Republic. It’s an animation festival, and it seems like most animators are hard up. This site features a toothed vagina with clitoris eyeball.
July1-17- Gravity is screening at Fantaspoa in Porto Alegre, Brazil. Information complete with foxy bleeding octopus lady here: http://www.fantaspoa.com/2011/noticia_view.php?id=17
Brazil is sexier than Slovakia, I guess.
We’re going to Australia!!! Doing a the Gravity live show at the Revelation Perth International Film Festival on July 17th. This fest is going to be amazing. I think Tony Conrad’s going to be there. I know Marie Losier’s film, The Ballad of Genesis and Lady Jaye, will be.
We’re leaving Mike McGinley (and Holli McGinley) in Australia, and Donna K, John Swartz, Drew Henkels and I are heading to Europe for a few more live Gravity shows.
