Georgetown Art Walk & Forney launch
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under Fantagraphics Bookstore 17 Jan 2008 8:16 AM

GEORGETOWN MERCHANTS ASSOCIATION ANNOUNCES LAUNCH OF MONTHLY SECOND SATURDAY GEORGETOWN ART ATTACK!

Seattle's colorful, industrial Georgetown neighborhood - home of the Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery - has drawn a lot of recent attention as the last outpost of a true blue-collar Bohemian arts community. In an effort to showcase the many accomplished artists and creative enterprises based in the neighborhood, the Georgetown Merchants Association is pleased to launch the first Georgetown Second Saturday Art Attack. The first of these lively monthly artwalks will take place on Saturday, February 9, from 6:00 to 9:00 PM.

More than two dozen galleries, studios, nightclubs, boutiques, and cafes will participate in the inaugural event. The work of countless local artists in a variety of media will be presented. As the delicate social ecology of the historic Georgetown district faces challenges posed by gentrification, it is hoped that featuring Georgetown's delightful creative diversity will generate public sentiment favoring the preservation of this regional asset.

Among the many highlights of the Second Saturday Georgetown Art Attack:

The lively "Art Jam" at 9 Lb. Hammer where a dozen Georgetown artists create modern masterpieces live onstage to a pulsating urban sound mix; Open artists studios at the newly developed Equinox Studios, housing more than three dozen artists and craftsmen; Art exhibition and book launch party for cartoonist Ellen Forney's provocative new title "Lust" at Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery; New works by the incomparable Rick Klu at Georgetown Tile Works; Open house celebration at the newly expanded Belle & Wissell studio gallery; Improvisational theater by Real Moment Players at Calamity Jane's; A sneak peek at soon-to-open Full Throttle Bottles; A multimedia installation about the Georgetown Super 8 Film Festival at Bolte Creative and an opening at  the rechristened MIX (formerly Christoff Gallery); Exotic shopping, diverse dining, thirst quenching fun and limitless entertainment in the charming and challenging Georgetown industrial arts quarter.

Most participating businesses cater to all ages clientele and admission is free.

Classic Bill Gaines TV clip
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under television 17 Jan 2008 8:14 AM
 
This Classic Television Showbiz clip is fantastic, featuring To Tell the Truth with guest William M. Gaines, publisher of EC Comics and MAD Magazine. It's pretty funny how the contestants clearly refuse to believe that a big ol' hippie like Gaines could possibly be a Madison Ave. publishing mogul.

New Website Feature of the Day: FLOG! Comments
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under meta 16 Jan 2008 10:18 AM

As several folks have already noticed and taken advantage of, you can now leave comments on FLOG. You must be logged in to leave comments, so if you're not registered yet, why not do it right now?

The commenting process itself is fairly self-explanatory. If there's a particularly hot discussion that you want to follow, or if you want to know if anyone responds to your trenchant observation, the comment thread of each and every FLOG post has its very own RSS feed -- the link is right at the top of the Comments section.

At this point we don't have any hard and fast rules about acceptable commenting etiquette, but we do reserve the right to remove comments at our own discretion and block any egregious repeat offenders. Comments of a commercial nature promoting artists and products not affiliated with Fantagraphics will, for the most part, not be tolerated and be treated as spam. That said, we're all pals here, so let's play nice!

New Website Feature of the Day: Navigating FLOG!
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under meta 15 Jan 2008 12:30 PM

If you're reading this, you know about FLOG! The Fantagraphics Blog. Here in its new incarnation, we have some new ways to navigate and find the things you want to read about.

In the right column you'll see links to the five most recent FLOG posts and links to monthly FLOG archives.

If you want to read all posts by a particular FLOG writer, simply click their name whenever it appears as a by-line link. FLOG posts are also grouped by subject using tags, so if you're reading a FLOG post about, for instance, Joe Sacco, and you want to see all posts about Joe, simply click on the "Joe Sacco" tag where it says "Filed under". You can also click on the "tags" link at the top of the white section of the page to see the "Tag Cloud," a big list of every tag used on FLOG.

One of the main drawbacks of the old version of FLOG was that posts were not archived individually, making it inelegant to share "permalinks" to individual FLOG posts. With this new incarnation, it's easy: each post has its own page, and the title of each post is the permalink!

At the top of the main middle section of the page, you'll see a row of links. "FLOG!" will take you back to the main FLOG page. The "tags" link will take you to a page with the "cloud" of all tags. Clicking "search" will take you (surprise!) to the FLOG search page, where you can look for FLOG posts by keyword, author, or tag. And you can subscribe to FLOG via RSS using the "feed" link. Here's where it gets a little tricky, because the "feed" link is different depending on what FLOG category you're looking at.

If you're looking at FLOG posts by tag, the "feed" link will subscribe you only to FLOG posts with that particular tag. So, if you want a special feed for FLOG posts tagged with "Robert Crumb," click the "Robert Crumb" tag and then use the "feed" link at the top of that page. Likewise, if you want a special feed for any particular FLOG author, simply click their by-line link and use the "feed" link at the top of that page. We've also highlighted a few of the most useful feed links on our RSS Feeds page. 

I hope this info has been helpful! Stay tuned for the next installment of New Website Feature of the Day.
