Here’s some art for my favorite ladies of the Lady to Lady podcast.
This is what I did with my Friday night so…podcast fan art is my new hobby? I think I’m going to challenge myself to make something for every podcast I listen to…eventually.
In honor of MaxFun Week here’s some Jordan, Jesse, Go! art I made awhile back and didn’t really do anything with…so I’ll put it here.
This song is so incredibly catchy. I could listen to it forever.
Here is Dave Hill talking about it on Song Exploder: http://www.maximumfun.org/shows/song-exploder
Chicago International Film Festival 2014
I first volunteered at the CIFF in 2010 on a whim and ended up doing it every year since. I’m so proud to be even just a small cog in a film festival that’s so focused on the art and artists in filmmaking.
Here’s what i’ve seen (only one), and what’s on my docket so far for this year (working full time=sadly not much viewing).
Seen on Sunday: Zurich (Germany)
Made a last minute decision to see this when my volunteer shift ended. The film centers around a woman terminally ill due to cystic fibrosis who has chosen to peacefully end her life on her 23 birthday. It doesn’t try to tackle greater moral issues at hand but succeeds in doing so by showing an intimate portrait of one family’s struggle with terminal illness. The wonderful performance from actress Liv Lisa Fries was the centerpiece of the film. The director and actress were also there for a lovely Q&A which revealed their devotion to this project.
Sat 10/18: One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest
Yes it is true, I have never seen this movie…so what better way to see it for the first time than on the big screen? The movie had its world premiere at CIFF 1975 and is being shown in honor of the festival’s 50th anniversary. Plus they are promising “surprise special guests.” It would be interesting to hear a Q&A from anyone involved in this movie.
Thur 10/21: Viktoria (Romania, Bulgaria)
I was intrigued by premise alone on this one (just click on the link), but just happened to watch the trailer and it looks visually dazzling as well so I’m really looking forward to it.
Movies I’m considering that fit in my schedule:
Movies I’d like to see, but don’t fit into my schedule in no particular order (there are so many…more than these):
- Mr. Kaplan
- The Word
- Force Majeure
- Free Fall
- Hotel Nueva Isla
- If You Dont, I Will
- The Iron Ministry
- The Piano Room
- Speed Walking
My plan is to someday be that retired person who spends all day at the festival seeing movies while caring around an envelope filled with enough tickets to make it rain.
DayQuil dance party…after dark.
Oh, hello Brian De Palma split screens.
