what's happening friday

when things get crazy, i seem to look to other worlds to escape to. the following are friendly diversions i have found this week...

i caught the new issue of Orion yesterday and was taken by a photo essay by Trish Carney. a quick search on 'the google' found a larger segment of the same work at Lens Culture from 2005. it's a stunning view of a morbid subject.

the Matter release party for the new issue is tonight in Fort Collins. Todd always hosts a riot of a party- wish i could be there. the issue should be on sale this weekend at most stores in Colorado, and online. i'm anxious to see my "Tundra & Steel" essay- probably in the mail as i write this.

finally, winter is almost upon us here in the interior. with the darkens comes a slow trickle of talent and shows to our little burg of aurora and ice fog- a few of the highlights...

- the Whitpsaws are playing at the Marlin the weekend

- Far North Film Festival makes it's annual appearance. We went last year to see a few- impressed by some, and let down by others, but a positive injection of creativity.

- The Blue Loon is playing the movie Half Nelson this month. NPR had an interview with writer/director Ryan Fleck that I was fortunate to hear during my drive north to create the essay for the current Matter issue. i've been waiting for the release of this film since.
