Howdy. For those of you who live in New York, we've got a couple of
things going on this weekend that you all might want to know about.
Thursday (3/6), I'm speaking at an NYU event, along with two other
people who do zines. I'll probably show a few slides and talk about
some of the projects Stay Free! has done over the years. The fun
starts at 7 pm, at Ultraviolent Cafe (45 West 4th Street, SE corner
of Washington Square) and is free for all the curly-headed people.
Sunday (3/9), we're sponsoring a screening at the NY Underground Film
Festival. "Value-Added Cinema: A Product Placement Compendium" is
described as a " 'That's Entertainment' of corporate product
placement from over sixty Hollywood movies"--a sort of greatest hits
of stealth advertising. Peter Conheim of Negativland is one of the
creators. Also on the bill is a short from the Prelinger Archives, a
1960s industrial film about product placement called "Your Name
Here." Sounds good, no? So come on down to Anthology Film Archives,
at the corner of 2nd Ave. and 2nd St, @ 5:45 pm.
There's also a bunch of good documentaries showing at the Film
Festival this weekend, so be smart and check out the schedule online:

new documentary about the radical 60s group) tonight and it ROCKED.
It's not going to play again at the festival but is slated for a run
at Film Forum this June so be on the lookout.
