Jiro Visits Ottawa

For those of you attending the Ottawa Animation Festival this week,  Jiro Visits the Dentist will be screening in Shorts Competition Four on Friday September 19th at 11:00 AM and on Sunday September 21st at 5:00 PM. Both screenings are at the Bytown Cinema. BTW, I want to give big props to my favorite radio station in the world WFMU. Many of the elements used to create the soundtrack come from the WFMU 365 Days project. This was a project which ran in 2003 and 2007 featuring a new weird audio clip or set of clips every day for a year.

Horse

Like many, I had a hard time staying focused today (I live in Somerville, just a stones throw from yesterday’s bombing). I did a bit of work straightening up and found a Poloroid of this piece from around 1988.
