“INSIDE YOURSELF” a mobile clubbing video dance event featuring gallery artists and special guests:

Jason Glasser, Patrick Martinez, Caroline McCarthy, Stefan Nikolaev, Fabien Verschaere

Clem Snide founder (and Parker’s Box artist), Jason Glasser airs unreleased music from his upcoming Fruitkey album, Chevaline. Meanwhile Patrick Martinez maintains his underground rock n’roll persona (most recently seen in South America with his experimental-trash band, Läpin Kultä) and offers a rare screening of his classic 1997 karaoke-in-the-shower video: In the Heat of the Morning (After David Bowie). Stefan Nikolaev’s video: The Screensaver / the hard disk / the disk, defies gravity in more senses than one with its Bulgarian pop cover songs, and Caroline McCarthy provokes and teases with her fake Beethoven piano rendering. Last but far from least, Fabien Verschaere’s new video Seven Days Hotel, is accompanied by the soundtrack of the same name by the French artworld badboy band, Liquid Architecture, (lead by the French critic/curator, Jérome Sans), remembered in New York for their unique live concert at Jeffrey Deitch Gallery in 2005…

Music by Fruitkey (courtesy t-rec records), Liquid Architecture (courtesy Naïve records), Nikolaev Bulgarian mix (courtesy Galerie Michel Rein)…and additional special guests & effects!

~carnavale time~

the the ny times covered this years carnevale in ivrea, italy where james and i spent a year(2004-2005).
you can see a few photos of carnevale d’ivrea on my flickr.
the carnevale celebration was about a month long in entirety. the culmanation of all that celebrating is the 3 day long orange battle. it is definitely an experience being there during the fights. several days we were in the middle of the battles with oranges flying past you. the smell was wonderful the first night….well i can say there was a lot of clean-up. they brought out snow-plows at night to pick up squashed orange goop.
after carnevale was over, every once in a while you would spot an orange somewhere.
from the bridge i saw a lot of oranges near the river, even a month after carnivale.
posts from carnevale 2005 are here in my olde blogge of years past. enjoy and eat a blood orange from sardinia today.

more movies, more recouping.

i saw the 5 queens, and it wasnt about drag queens. it was a heist film, the big score, stamps.
ha! sounds lame, right. well it was quite good with a great ending.
here is what amazon said:
Plot Summary
Genres: Crime, Drama, Mystery
Plot Outline Two con artists try to swindle a stamp collector by selling him a sheet of counterfeit rare stamps (the “nine queens”).
Plot Synopsis: Early one morning, Marcos observes Juan successfully pulling off a bill-changing scam on a cashier, and then getting caught as he attempts to pull the same trick on the next shift. Marcos steps in, claiming to be a policeman, and drags Juan out of the store. Once they are back on the street, Marcos reveals himself to be a fellow swindler with a game of much higher stakes in mind, and he invites Juan to be his partner in crime. A once-in-a-lifetime scheme seemingly falls into their laps – an old-time con man enlists them to sell a forged set of extremely valuable rare stamps, The Nine Queens. The tricky negotiations that ensue bring into the picture a cast of suspicious characters, including Marcos’ sister Valeria, their younger brother Federico and a slew of thieves, conmen and pickpockets. As the deceptions mount, it becomes more and more difficult to figure out who is conning whom.
********
anyway i consider myself a top-notch detective and i didnt guess the ending.
usually that means i love it! a lot of times i see the ending a mile or an hour away.
i also watched , the science of sleep again. but i already told you how much i loved it.
thanks to chelsea (and dauphin) who loaned me tons of movies.
