At the Holiday earlier, I ended up chatting with cute girl at the bar next to me. She’s a writer. I gave her an Underground Film Journal sticker with our slogan: A GOOD PLACE TO GO F**K YOURSELF. She seemed less inclined to talk to me after I gave it to her. I told her to go to the site and email me. We’ll see.

I think I only have time to jot a review of Experimental #29.95, the short film preceding the feature. It was a 15-minute abstract history of video art. I could appreciate its aesthetics, but I wasn’t too enthralled with it. That is until it gave a website address to buy bootleg copies of video art that sold for thousands of dollars in art galleries. I’ll have to check it out at work tomorrow to see if they’re for real. (note: they are for real and the site is hilarious – www.rtmark.com)
