Adele [Mar. 11th, 2009|12:48 pm]
annika edison
So I went to see Adele last night. I was almost also going to see arty punksters No Age after, as I didn't find out they were playing until long after we had Adele tickets. She was fantastic. Completely endearing on top of having 100 years of soul in her 20 year old voice. She was humble, giddy, silly and refreshingly honest. What was really refreshing about it, to me, was that seeing a totally packed house stand in awe for the duration proved that not everyone wants Britneys and Lindsays and more vapid twats who have long since exercised an iota of elegance in their public behavior. Not that I am always the pillar of elegance, but you know what I mean!! She also played guitar and you can tell has a great relationship with her band. She even made me a little misty a couple times.

Happy Things [Jan. 2nd, 2009|09:51 am]
annika edison
Happy New Year to All! I rang mine in after hanging art and doing gallery stuff for three days straight at a very, very small get together catching up with one of my oldest friends who'd just returned from Ohio (where we are both from), it was really nice. Not thrilled about having to be back at the ol' day job today but openings tonight are exciting.
And HAPPY Birthday to victoria_lane, a dynamic and inspiring woman who relentlessly pursues goals and dreams -- you have a great day, lady!

Have a great and safe holiday, each and every one of you, whatever it is you may be doing! I myself will be rousing the mister soon to visit the family and then hopefully catch a viewing of Frost/Nixon -- I know, I'm a real party animal.

The star of films including Back to the Future, Willard, Bartleby, Wild at Heart, Beowulf, River's Edge, Rubin & Ed, and The People Vs. Larry Flynt

Screening his award-winning film:
What is It?

The schedule for each night's show:

*Crispin Hellion Glover's performance of What It Is and How It Is Done is performed in Crispin Hellion's Glover's Big Slide Show
**A screening of the film What is It?
***A question-and-answer session with Crispin!
***Signing! - Crispin signs your items in the lobby!


What is It? premiered at the 2005 Sundancecrispinposter Film Festival and won Best Narrative Film at the 2005 Ann Arbor Film Festival. In the same year Mr. Glover was awarded the prestigious Maverick Award from the Method Fest which was presented to him by esteemed film director Werner Herzog.

Known for creating many memorable, incredibly quirky characters onscreen as an actor, Glover's first effort as a director will not disappoint fans of his offbeat sensibilities and eccentric taste. Featuring a cast largely comprised of actors with Down's Syndrome, the film is not about Down's Syndrome. Glover describes it as "Being the adventures of a young man whose principal interests are snails, salt, a pipe and how to get home as tormented by an hubristic racist inner psyche." In addition to writing and directing WHAT IS IT?, Glover also appears in the film as an actor in the role of "Dueling Demi-God Auteur and The young man's inner psyche." Fairuza Balk voices one of the snails.

WHAT IS IT? is part one of a trilogy. Part two, IT IS FINE EVERYTHING IS FINE...! is currently in post-production.

It's unlike anything I've ever seen before...the unrestrained id of an artist at full frenzy, unafraid to mount onscreen what others would judiciously edit out. Glover's film is like that of the fever dream of a crazy person. "

--Dennis Dermody
Paper Magazine

"Scenes with naked women in elephant masks, Shirley Temple, Glover being lowered deus-ex-machina style into a Maxfield Parrish scene...It's like Fellini on psychedelics -- wildly creative but completely twisted."

--Jane Ganahl
San Francisco Examiner

"ABSOLUTELY the most uncompromising and original thing I've seen. People try to compare it to the likes of surrealist hero Luis Buñuel and trailblazer Werner Herzog, but I say Glover has transcended even them. "

--Kelly O
The Seattle Stranger Weekly

WOW [Dec. 26th, 2007|03:51 pm]
annika edison
Happy Holidays to everyone! I just saw the line on my live journal page that
shows I've not updated in 20 weeks. Wowza! I guess I knew I was busy, but damn.
So hello to everyone! I have at least been trying to peek in and see what people
are up to. I hope to be more regular! Hope everyone is not too frazzled from the shopping
and has had time to party, relax, or whatever you most wanted to do. I got screamed at by
a guy who stole my parking space at Bed, Bath and Beyond (which really, there's not that much of
the BEYOND part at the one nearest me) who told me he could take any space he wanted because he is
"THE KING"...what really could I say to that? XO
