Nothin Special

Jacob put together a video screening called "nothin special"
that is a part of the select media festival in chicago.
Please go, here is the info:
@ Co-Prosperity Sphere ¥ 32nd Place & Morgan
$10 Donation after 8 pm

One hour of videos from the sad lands of post-internet contemporary USA.
Some of these artists I have met, others are YouTube apparitions, and others
are complete mysteries, discovered, re-discovered, and lost again inside the
internetÕs caverns. Original or stolen footage, homemade or mass-produced,
monumental or completely boring, there is no difference. A magical moment
becomes meaningless, then rediscovered as a powerful ghost, then buried again--
all in the blink of an eye. Banal vs. Extraordinary, Derivative vs Original,
Insane vs Normal, Real vs Fake, these distinctions donÕt exist because we walk
with all these spirits simultaneously.

John Michael Boling and Javier Morales (New York), Jesse Hulcher (Pittsburgh),
John Kilduff (Youtube/California), Jesse Mclean (Pittsburgh), Shana Moulton (California),
Nanny Lynn (Michigan), Happeh (Youtube/California), Guthrie Lonergan (California),
Kathleen Daniel aka Silicious (Youtube/Germany)

lights up, and is bright, hot, intimate, erotic, enclosed, and secret.
If Glow Worms were an animal, it would be phosphorescent rainbow

Dr. Ninja Reviews

Dr. Ninja, aka Paper Rod, aka Retard Riot aka, wait thats it, it feels like he has 20 names, but i
guess thats it, anyway, Noah, has started a really really good web page of reviews. They are
really funny and insightful. Here he is talking about our new DVD:

Paper Rad - "Trash Talking" dvd
Music, Movies, Art - admin on December 21, 2006 at 11:37 pm

Have you ever heard trash talk? I mean...have you ever really listened to your garbage? Look at all
your stuff. Trash. Why do we have it and why is it here? The answer may be found in your U2
iPod, in the Russian Nintendo video bootleg file. Sorry, let me start again. Do you want a
snack...some chips? Some wedges? We have along way to go in this review...DVDly speaking. Sorry,
we're out of sauce enablers. Anyways, where was I? Oh yes...trash talking. Trash poses the
question: "What is the new shape in entertainment? What is the new entertainment shape?" Hmmm... Where's Tux
Dog? He's a detective, I'm sure he could find the answer. I can't find him anywhere. Hello?
What?? Google's been hacked?!?...Better ask Jeeves. Hmmmmm, let's Hey
Raphe! Have you been using your 2megabit magic memory stick in my USB port? Something's wrong
here. Nuclear winter wrong... What? You think it's broke? You think the internets broke? No, you
don't have to hit save when you're done using the internet. Just close your eyes and make
believe... and you can be at Fort Thunder! Paper Rad hasn't turned on anything that wasn't
already off.

anyway, read the last sentence of this review, and more at:

Bj and Da Dogs 2

Hi everybody, Paper Rad here... As we are writing this letter we are currently on tour across 1/2 of America and Southern Canada. In New York we saw a book called "BJ & the Dogs 2" that some people thought we made. We didn't make it; its creator attributed it to "paperrad". We have no issues with the book's content or the act of parody or appropriation or satire, in fact, we do those things all the time with Garfield or Gumby. However we never attribute our creations falsely. We feel misrepresenting or posing as other people is weird; it's kind of like identity theft. We would ask that the creators of this new book stop attributing, selling, distributing, and advertising under our name and in addition relinquish the related My Space "paper rad" account... Thank You Paper Rad
