Launch party for Volume Two of Robin Bougie's "adults-only guide to history's sickest and sexiest movies" on Saturday August 1st, 7-9pm at Main Street. Books and cold beverages will be available.
Via Mr. Bougie: "Issues 13 to 16 [of CS] are exhaustively revised and collated in this second wild volume, together with an additional 90 pages of never-before-seen movie reviews, interviews, rants, comics, hard-to-find classic movie advertising, and graphic illustrations by myself and a host of my talented friends from both the comic book and animation industry. Regardless of whether you’re is just discovering the world of classic porn, horror, and exploitation movies, or a long time fan from the days when the drive-ins and grindhouses reigned, you’ll find plenty to get excited about, gleefully sloshing around in the filth of the Cinema Sewer!"
The Benjamin Sonnets are a series of poems created through a process of "homophonic" translation from German writings by Walter Benjamin. They are ridiculous, but only in the sense that things unexpected and wonderful can be ridiculous.
Clint Burnham reads in Main Street's front room Saturday July 11th at 7pm. Books and the usual ice-cold beverages will be available. Everyone is welcome to attend.
