Sweaty Eyeballs 2021

In 2015, I attended a Sweaty Eyeballs invitational screening at the Brown Center at MICA. If I were a religious person, I would probably say it was like a religious experience. Alas, I am not, but I would describe it as an important night for me – I left feeling inspired and full of wonder. My glass was full. I had just started graduate school, and this night was like a big, welcoming door that swung open for me.

It was a fantastic night – sitting in an actual theater and watching programming one doesn’t often see in actual theaters. I was moved. I loved it. I wanted to be a part of it.

@sweatyeyeballsanimation is a 7-day juried festival of the world’s most boundary-pushing, mind-blowing animation, and this year you can watch from anywhere in the world! Sweaty Eyeballs is hybrid for 2021 and will offer both online streaming AND in-person screenings at the historic SNF Parkway Theatre in Station North Arts + Entertainment District theater in Baltimore, MD. Follow @sweatyeyeballsanimation for ticketing and pass updates and programming news. 

I am so happy, therefore, to say The Benefits of Radiation will be screened at the SNF Parkway Theatre, for the first time in an actual theater. I love this film, and I am happy for it to be included.

The Truth in the Art

Rob Lee, the Truth in the Art

Back in late July, I had an interview with Rob Lee for his Baltimore podcast, the Truth in this Art. I enjoyed talking with him, and I’ve loved a lot of his episodes.

Please check it out, if you are so included.

My wonderful daughter Chloe made this for me a few years ago. I have it on a t-shirt! My college roommates used to say this to me all the time.

Of alligators and other alligators

We went to Florida for a quick trip to visit our parents. I wanted to post some of these pics, which include alligators, pickle ball, lovely beaches and a surprise light-up toilet.
