Dallas VideoFest 2011

. . . is Sept. 21 - 25!

To my extreme regret, I have to miss it 'cuz I'll be out of town, and before that, I'll be too busy to put together the kind of chronologically-ordered schedule I've provided in previous years.

However, the Fest website is here, with lots of info and, I'm sure, more to come.

And I guarantee that if you go and see all you possibly can, you'll see things you'll remember with interest and pleasure for the rest of your life.

UPDATE: Something just happened to penetrate into my hard-at-work space today, about a program called Women Art Revolution; and if I were able to make the Fest this year, I wouldn't miss it.

From the DIY Front

I'm saving up a few items for future posts, but had to sneak back to share this:

(Thanks, Ben! More at Dark Roasted Blend.) So, who's turn is it to be the "designated excavator"?

Temporary Hiatus for Big Project

I'm working on a multimedia art/reality project that will consume my every waking moment for the next several weeks. I'll reveal more when it's done.

Until then, please bear with my silence; and check back here around the end of September! I promise, I shall return! With good stuff!

(And if you live in Dallas and would like to help, pls contact me.)

(And b.t.w., no, I don't believe the world's ending any time soon. It may be the end of the world as we knew it; but I believe we're on our way to re-creating a better version – I'm working on it, and send my love to all others who are, too.)
