Happy Birthday, Kevin Barnes!

kevinbarnes

Kevin Barnes — who is the heart and brain and mouth and anus of of Montreal — was born today in 1974.

Since 1996, he has released 13 full-length albums: totaling almost 10 and a half hours, three (ish) EPs: totaling another 70 minutes, and at least four full-length compilations of original music: totaling another 3.5 hours — plus a bunch of distinct singles (and probably some early-days tour-only releases unknown to me), which creates a conservative estimate of about 15 hours of original music.

A MOVIEGOER’S MANTRA

A Moviegoer's Mantra

The way I see it, there are three kinds of people out there. People who LOVE movies, people who don’t go to the movies, and people who shouldn’t go to the movies. In the last several years, I have been going to the movies more and more often than ever before, as I live in a city that has has been nationally ranked as one of the best for movie lovers, especially when it comes to independent and retro screenings. However the modern theatrical landscape has been tainted by the third grouping I’d mentioned above, people who shouldn’t be going to the movies to begin with.

Mad Max vs. Angry Aaron

UPDATE — May 22, 2015:

Now that I have actually seen Mad Max: Fury Road, I can say with confidence that this motion picture seems, or strives, to be a piece of feminist literature by a male who collaborated with females to achieve it. Differences in terminology are important. If we are to call literature propaganda, and if we are to boycott something for its themes, symbols, and irony, we are just a few subtle regressive mutations away from burning books again.

HOLY SHIT! One of our movies is showing somewhere (the NWFC)!

draft_1

If you’re prone to making batshit-weird movies, rare is the opportunity to actually screen one of them to a room full of strangers who can just walk off the street and buy a ticket. The Northwest Film Center has stepped up to the plate and has offered us an evening of cinematic shelter. They’ve been kind enough to invite us to show our newest feature CHILDHOOD MACHINE as part of their Northwest Tracking series on March 5th.

Making content that is primarily consumed via the internet, as we do, we’ve almost forgot what it’s like to watch one of our movies with a real-deal audience in attendance. Your tangibility will be most appreciated and we can’t wait to smell all of you who can make it!

Buy advance tix HERE. March 5th at 7pm at the Northwest Film Center (1219 SW Park Ave).
