Three DJ’s plus a DJ TBA – Saturday

So, this Saturday night, June 16, I’ll be taking part in the Royale’s first tag-team DJ event, alongside So. Kingshighway faves Mark Early and Barbara Cliffe. (Along with a possible DJ TBA, as the estimable Jim Utz has had to bow out to other commitments.) Each of us are bringing 40 albums. Should be a gas, gas, gas.

Music and film this weekend

Yikes. I’m sleeping in on Monday. Things just got complicated for the weekend, but in a good way:

On Friday night, I’ll be spinning at the Royale from 10 p.m.-close. (SCRATCH THAT, in part: spin’s from 6-10 p.m., ye olde happy hour.)

From there, I’ll shoot over to begin some proofreading and late-night scripting for the 48 Hour Film Project team I’m involved with, headed up by MayorSlay.com videoblogger and 48 Hour vet Carson Minow.

After wrapping up shooting on Saturday night, I’ll be filling in for Cricket O’Neill on KDHX‘s “Etiquette of Violence,” from midnight-2 a.m.

I’ll spare you the youth soccer details for Sunday…

Joe Christ

A relatively new acquaintance sent me a note, saying that I’d been name-checked on the video trailer of a Joe Christ DVD release. It took me a minute to sort out the connection, since I hadn’t written on (or thought of) Joe Christ for the better part of a decade. But when Christ was a regular visitor to St. Louis, sometimes screening his low-budget films at the old Way Out Club, I reviewed a couple pieces of his work for the Riverfront Times. Again, this is a good chunk of a lifetime back, so the current trailer reference is both amusing and a tad dusty.

Nonetheless, I think the guy’s work is absolute garbage, so it’s nice to be remembered for something.

I’m tempted to not hotlink, as I don’t think Mr. Christ’s work deserves more eyes and ears, but… if you have no taste or soul, click through:


Life’s rich pageant… I tell ya.

Earthworms on Tuesday

In a bit of filling-in-ery, I’ll be at the controls for “Earthworms” on KDHX, this Tuesday, June 7, from 7-8 p.m. With regular host Jean Ponzi at a conference in KC, I’ll be talking to Karen Heet, Rick Hunter and Maren Englemohr about green building trends in St. Louis, a topic which also happens to be the cover story of the current issue of Healthy Planet. During the last few minutes of the show, I’ll be talking to a performance duo known as the Composters, who’ll be performing in Belleville this weekend.

Any clips on green building trends… well, I wouldn’t not read them, if you sent them along. You know?
