I'm working on a list of where to find VHS in NYC. Suggestions welcome, forgive the naked Markdown (working on it, forever).
Oh and last week it was my turn on the DFW reading group.
twitch dot tv slash wondervillenyc, send an @unitof in the chat and I'll make you feel less weird, or more.
JF: Sending out Geistlist eminently. Any key event in Feb to blast to weirdos, semiartists, & self-described Media Types?
AE: There's my poetry salon! The idea is for it to be a poetry night where the poems serve as conversation starters instead of having people sit through tons of poems at once. One short poem every 45 minutes. Gives time to digest the poems and chat with others.
Tell Akpanoluo I sent you.
We're back to Last Mondays. Sorry about the surprise January week prelay, but monitoring the chat from a sports arena hotel while FORT90 managed the bar was a blast. I went skiing indoors, in the middle of January!
I found a hand-painted VHS on Saturday that purports to be "Wife Swap Live from Bohemian Grove". Might be interesting, if it's not insta-⏏ed. Come to 1186 Broadway in Brooklyn to fight for its right to ⏵, or passively powerlessly watch.
Come Saturday. Once you're on the Wifi: 'http://wonderville.local`. Find the rabbit, tell Vi I sent you.
Beckett lives in an illegal loft on Hudson where a cot sits in the long-line-potty basement below a DIY theater floor with chairs hanging from bike hooks screwed into his upstairs neighbors' floor (the upstairs neighbors presenting an ongoing challange to this already legally challenged existence). He's launching a magazine. It's tenuous, it's risky, it could be nothing, and it could be good. It should be interesting.
Consider joining our strange little colony, I run the server and Maria runs the culture. It's pretty hands off but I'm thinking of doing digital film nights sometime, on my Plex server with like s'mores and stuff. If you have no idea what you're doing, good—neither do we.
Jeff rocks, basically you get a lifetime warranty and 21/7 text support. Hope you like blood (he says it's less gross in person; disappointing).
