Mondo 2000 Would Be Cover Girl Makes Good

The Great Lost Last Issue of MONDO 2000 was designed in 1997. It got as far as the film stage (publishers understand) but was never printed. It was a great great issue which I can say because I had pretty much nothing to do with it… it was edited by “Queen Mu” and designed by her and Heide Foley, with some help from Robert Phoenix and a few other stout members of a pick up crew. Anyway it featured a performance artist, Miranda July, on the cover.

Now Miranda July has a film out called “Me and You and Everybody We Know” which is fucking brilliant, beautiful, funny, humane…

OK, it’s in many ways your archetypal indie film: quirky characters, sexual taboo buttons pressed (relatively gently actually, but that may actually make it more powerful), the second lead character (played by Miranda herself) is even a performance artist who makes films of her feet with the words “me” and “you” written on her shoe-tops. But if you’re cringing, you’re cringing WITH her… she’s a very cringy, self-aware character.

Anyway, just take my word for it. This film totally works.

Now, does anybody want to print that lost issue of Mondo 2000?

Berkeley Liberation Radio on the Move

A little item in today’s SF Chron about Berkeley Liberation Radio’s latest changes.

“The 40-watt station has been silenced by the FCC several times before, including under its predecessor, Free Radio Berkeley. It plans to start a streaming Internet broadcast on a Web site within a few weeks…”

And we’ve got the father of Berkeley Liberation Radio, through the auspices of Radio Free Berkeley coming up on the RU Sirius Show on the week of July 10. Stephen Dunifer really got the ball rolling on micro-radio and is currently moving into TV. Anyway, I’m excited about this one and thought I’d drop this little news item to whet appetites (as well as inform).
