The Talkies / Bogda Art Show / Tangerine Festival Photo Recap

January 31, 2008

From one weekend to the next…

george.jpg

“Night of the Living Dead” is playing February 1st at 11:55 p.m and February 2nd at 9:30 p.m.  George Romero will be providing commentary on the Feb 2nd showing.

Visit thetalkies.net for ticket information.

“The Talkies is the long-time pet project-come true of founder Tim Massett that first came to fruition in October 2006.  It is essentially cinema shouting back against the DVD/home theater. It’s a 35mm, two-night event. The first night we screen a classic film in 35mm. The next night, not only does the director join us, but he or she also provides running commentary throughout the screening. The audience watches and listens along to both the director and the film. It’s taking something the DVD offers (the alternate commentary track) and making it oh so much better.”

Twitch blog mentions the event here.
Joey Marchy at Urban Jacksonville mentions it here.

The Talkies’ first guest was Herschell Gordon Lewis “talkied” along to a super great print of his classic film 2000 Maniacs and even sold tickets to his own event from the San Marco Theatre’s box office.

Brent Green and Sin Ropas at San Marco

October 8, 2007

at San Marco

On Thursday at 9:30  – $5 will get you some super animated short work by Brent Green. Brent creates these other-worldly, rickety and crusty short hand made films.  Brent will be on hand to not only present the work but he will be lending his shouting abilities to narrate the shorts.  Brent’s films have screened from Sundance to the Warhol Museum. He even had an evening at the IFC Center in NYC which he found completely preposterous.  The shorts will also be accompanied by a two piece from the mountains of North Carolina, Sin Ropas.  They will be providing their jangley, jagged scores to accompany these silent animated shorts.  Sin Ropas will also stick around to perform a short set.

The New Space – 1520 N. Main St.

September 1, 2007

newstore.jpg

Here we go.  Tony Allegreti, Ian Rainey and myself recently got a great space at 1520 N Main St.  Inertia will be moving to this location.  Tons of parking.  The working title of the whole building is the Buyers Market Lodge, though Inertia will be situated with it’s own signage and entrance.  Actually the address on our door was 1520 1/2 N Main.  Our alley leads directly to a pub called Shanty Town, perhaps you’ve heard of it?  Ian Rainey, of Hip Hop Hell and Shanty Town, will have his record shop located just across the commons area in Buyers Market from Inertia. So… records! records!

We’ll be open as soon as possible but dates have not been announced.

Concerning our old space – Heartworks is not closing.  Some investors are giving it a much needed push to be open full time and ship shape.  Having a record store in the middle just didn’t make much sense.

Back to the new space, and what a space it is! More space means more projects for the community. 

* Tim, from the Jacksonville Film Festival / San marco Theatre, will be doing a film series at the new space.  Right on Main St – a group of late night picnicers watching a movie on the big screen outside.

* Steve Sikes, after finding his land legs from 2 years aboard the Sea Shepherd, and whom has always been enthralled with our Freeschool programs, has decided to be the primary organizer of the Freeschools.  Day and time pending, but it will be the same day and time every week.  The classes will offer the same programs we’ve had before such as bike repair, silkscreening, plumbing, composting, as well as programs like how to handle debt, how to write a resume.  So, stay tuned for that.

* Bizarre Market.  We’ve had a few people interested in being the primary organizer of Bizarre Market, and now we have TONS more space for it. Good things will happen with this.

* Wi-Fi. Free.

*  The Riverside Health Resource Center is super down for using some of the space for an outreach location.  So weekly free STD testing is on the roster.

* We’ve procured a projector, so video game competitons on the side of building are a full reality. Guitar Hero, or that 007 Golden Eye for the N64. Classic. 

* Oh, and speaking of games, the commons area will have a free / donation pool table, foosball (Europeans call it kicker man!) , ping pong, some swank couches, that Double Dragon Game from Shanty Town, and, as a friend described it in a bar to me last night, “a shoot em’ up video game with those two big guns.” Said friend promised she could procure that game for us.  So come play games and listen to records! 

* I mean, we are a bookstore.  Author discussions are going to happen, but until we can procure anyone big (at least to us) to come and talk about a book they wrote,  get a $1 cup of bottomless free trade coffee and talk to your friends about books you’ve read.

* We have space for shows. Live music. Think of those shows at The Pit in Riverside we’ve set up for the past 5 years… And the shows we’ve set up at our old store location… get stoked.   

This project is only possible because of benevolent landlord Mack Bissette of SRG Homes and Neighborhoods.  Also a big thanks again to Tony Allegreti and Ian Rainey, who, with this project, are helping to keep Inertia going.  

Tony talks about it more on his blog here. Thank to Joey Marchy of Urban Jacksonville for mentioning the space and taking that picture. I’m still kinda bummed my camera got stolen on tour in Europe.

Best Friends Day #6, Post 1

August 20, 2007

group.jpg

Refer to our previous post here to get the info on what Best Friends Day is…

So get prepared for a series of random and half prepared posts as I find pictures online or friends email me pictures.  The one above is one of the group photos from Hadad’s on Saturday.

skate.jpg
Day one was the show at Skatelab.  I was in Jacksonville playing a show at The Pit with EYC and Landlord.  But I found from flickr photos from that show here. I’ll forever be amazed that this place opens its doors to hundreds of punk kids on rollerskates, kegs, and hardcore bands for evening on insanity.

Friday was the Scavenger hunt.  This photo was taken from this myspace profile.

Haven’t found any pictures from Saturday’s show yet with Rager,  Ultra Dolphins and Baroness.  We left Jacksonville just it time to get to Richmond for this show.

Saturday was the infamous Hadads.  Here is a video of Nate from Snack Truck / Ultra Dolphins playing at Hadads. The following pictures from Hadads were culled from this flickr account.

That night, the show was cancelled for some mysterious reason.  Things stilled pulled through and Environmental Youth Crunch, Pink Razors, and Dropdead playing in a Richmond basement. Word travelled fast and the basement, backyard and street were full of people.  After all was said and done the basement was sadly ruined.  The drop ceiling w/ ceiling tiles was completely obliterated, and the floor had caved in. 

Oh, and I found  a video of some Best Friends Day 5 footage here.

I’ll post more things as I find them etc.  The next few days I’ll be out of town on tour with Civilization, Black Cobra and The Kult of Ouroboros.  Listen to newly recorded Civilization jams here.

Tuesday – Common Grounds in Gainesville
Wednesday – Transitions in Tampa
Thursday – Uncle Lou’s in Orlando

This Thursday at THE PIT

Show at THE PIT, Vegetarian Potluck.

August 8, 2007

Pit Show!

The show starts on time.  Weird, right?  I want to party and have a good time, but it’d be nice if the show was accessible to everyone, that means not having it go till 3am.  8pm is a good time to hang and eat food, and 10pm is a good time to get loud and crazy.  No underage drinking.  Please don’t ruin this for everyone else.  Definetly come hang out, but stay inside the fenced area and clean up after yourself.  I know it’s just a parking lot, but people pay rent at The Pit – people who get fined by the city and pissed when you leave it a mess.  Please respect this space, bullshit attitudes stay home.

The band Instrumenstration will be playing during the potluck.  It’s Carmen and Kia from The Mountain Yellers.

Bring food to the potluck already cooked and prepared, we won’t have a grill or anything at The Pit.  If you show up a with a pizza, you and a friend get in for free.  I mean cooking is good and all, but pizza is also good.  Also, beer is not food.

Weekend times…

August 3, 2007

Friday brings forth Blacks Kids to TSI.  I saw em play at Art Walk and liked it.  I’ll be in Tampa Friday for the last Holy Mountain show. Saturday is your day of rest… and Sunday…

If it rains, it’ll be that much crazier….

And plan ahead for next weekend. Saturday August 11th yields a glorious show at THE PIT in Riverside.  8pm kicks off the vegetarian potluck. Bring food at 8, and the show only costs you $2-3.  Two chill bands play the potluck – Instrumenstration, and Tuffy. Things get loud around 10pm with Shitagoddam, Extorbosocial, Section 802, FTN. The last three bands are from Miami and are touring together. Lets show them a good time!
