Achieving Otherhood



Venice renaissance man Gerry Fialka, who introduced Craig Baldwin's Tribulation 99 at the EPFC Launch Event for 'patacritical Interrogation Techniques Anthology Volume 3, wrote an essay for Otherzine entitled Nothing and Stay Out, which links 'pITA3 with Rodney Ascher's film Room 237: Being an Inquiry into The Shining in 9 Parts and Robert Guffey's book Cryptoscatology: Conspiracy Theory as Art Form. Here's the link: http://www.othercinema.com/otherzine/?issueid=29&article_id=172

Otherzine is the inhouse organ for Baldwin's Other Cinema, which will be hosting the 3rd 'pITA3 Launch Event at ATA Gallery in San Francisco's Mission District at 8ish on Saturday, April 6th - stay tuned for details!

Ecce Flentem Homo


Packing up for the trip back from Vegas with the truckload of art I made as AIR at UNLV over the last 8 weeks - a helluva commute I tell you what. Chloe on her high horse contemplating one of my series of paintings depicting men weeping as they sniff flowers - this one is Tigris of Gaul from the movie Gladiator. She was actually checking it out for a while, then when I got out my camera she lost her focus. I think she's looking for a signature here. Sorry Chloe - Artworld doesn't want artists with stylish signatures. Artworld wants artists with signature styles!

Gone to that great Gumboot Clogeroo in the sky!

Just heard on the Mannlicher Carcano Radio Hour that Canadian C&W icon Stompin' Tom Connors has ceased stompin'. Which I guess makes Mannlicher Carcano the greatest living Canadian musical act. Assuming Gogo is still going. In any case, if you are unfamiliar with this great man's oeuvre, it's sort of like Mike Myers doing Johnny Cash - Gumboot Clogaroo is as good an entry point as any, but I recommend spending some time exploring or reacquainting yourself.
