It Smells Like Dust and Moonlight

Yesterday I saw Don Hertzfeldt’s It’s A Beautiful Day at the Riverview Theater, along with some of his other shorts. I’m always amazed by how he nails emotion just right, with his use of dialogue and sound and fairly simple animation. So expressive. And the man himself was there for a Q&A session afterward. The poor guy has been to 40 or 50 cities on this tour, and traveling since November. Despite being the absolute last stop on this very long tour he was remarkably engaging and enthusiastic. And very very interesting, as I suspected he might be.

Four more good things for this Monday, plus one stupid one:

Been a whirlwind of activity since last Thursday. Saw Sleeping in the Aviary perform at the MIA’s Third Thursday, then moved on to “Rectal” Night with Rana May and Dreamland Faces at the Black Forest Inn. Friday night was Mother of Fire’s “Feral Children” release show, complete with costumes and swordplay. And Saturday we started out Record Store Day 2012 at Hymies and moved on to Yeti Records. Did lots of socializing and listening to local bands play - more than taking photos. Then wound up at a housewarming party, a birthday party and the Hexagon for Hollow Boys. Busy busy.

I wasn't expecting swordplay
