Back in 1992, I was lucky enough to capture one of Mia's powerful performances on the stage of The Colourbox, in Seattle WA. Mia gave me a gift that night that has connected me with some of the most amazing artists, women and men, in film, music, and writing. Over the years, she has given countless gifts to all who have come to know her through The Gits, (now defunct) Home Alive organization, her many friends and fans, the film, and (of course!) her music/voice and family. Although she was taken from us, her voice will never be silenced! Happy Birthday, Mia! -Lucy Hanna

For an experience that is surreal and so innovative, here's the recent animation by BLU, is one of the artists participating at Nuart 2010 in Norway this September!
Watch existentialist German filmmaker, Werner Herzog in Les Blank documentary, Werner Herzog Eats His Shoe, as he makes good on a bet between him and Errol Morris (from the UC Berkeley campus). Then listen to a Herzog impersonator read from children's books. Then watch the life of a plastic bag narrated by Herzog. This is an amazing journey of an existentialist plastic bag. It shouldn't be missed! All of this, courtesy of Brainpickings.com a user supported website.
