Join Kim on Wednesday, March 23rd at 7:00 pm, as he presents a screening of the 1963 Jean-Luc Godard masterpiece, Contempt, at Seattle's Central Cinema.
As he explains, the screening is "Part of their regular 'let a prominent Seattleite choose their favorite movie and talk it up' feature. If you've never seen Godard's Contempt, it is well worth seeing in a theatrical setting (in this case projecting from a Blu-Ray disc, which is the next best thing to a actual film), so grab your chance. If you've seen it, you probably know that it's always worth re-visiting, especially on a larger screen."
Central Cinema is located in Seattle's Central District neighborhood at 21st Avenue and E. Union Street. Tickets are available at the door, or online here.
Us neither! But you've only got a couple more days to check out the "Lovesick" exhibit from Seattle's own Bureau of Drawers cartoonist collective. If you haven't had a chance to see this collection of original art, handmade books and prints, get yrself down to the Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery tout de suite!
And THANK YOU to everyone who made it out to our opening night on Valentine's Day weekend! It was, indeed, lovely to see everyone out, supporting our local comic scene, and show-goers were serenaded by Bureau of Drawers members Dennis Driscoll and Sean Robinson of Landlord's Daughter. We've got video from eachperformance below:
The great Drew Friedman was recently a guest on the WFMU radio show Fool's Paradise, discussing everything from, "Drew's early career, Tor Johnson sightings, the healing power of Joe E Ross and Drew's latest masterwork, Sideshow Freaks (Blast Books). Zagnut bars will also be referenced."
If you forgot to tune in, you can listen to the archive here! And toss those guys a few bucks -- it's the WFMU 2011 Marathon through March 13th!
I may be a vegetarian, but how can anyone resist MEAT, an art show opening Thursday, March 3rd at Meltdown Comics in Los Angeles?
Our very own Michael Kupperman will have some savory art delights, along with a bunch of other carnivorous artists. (Charlyne Yi??? Yay!)
The opening reception runs from 7-10 pm, and Alie and Georgia (of Drinks with Alie and Georgia) will be on hand to make some special meat-themed cocktails for the show. Again, I may be a vegetarian, but mmmmm!
Get your book signed by Megan Kelso! // Pic taken at the Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery
