August 25, 2009 7:00pm Died Young, Stayed Pretty. by filmmaker Eileen Yaghoobian “Died Young, Stayed Pretty” (http://www.diedyoungstayedpretty.com/) is a candid look at the underground poster culture in North America. This unique documentary examines the creative spirit that drives these indie graphic artists. They pick through the dregs of America’s schizophrenic culture and piece them back together. What you end up with is a caricature of the black and bloated heart that pulses greed through the US economy. The film gives us intimate look at some of the giants of this modern subculture.

  • Directly after the film, Eileen and the following panel of local rock poster designers will field questions from the audience, led by moderator, Tim DuRoche: Art Chantry, Dan Stiles, Guy Burwell, Mike King and Lloyd Winter

7th Planet Picture Show
Mt. Tabor Theater

7th Planet Picture Show, where Will Radik and his guests give movies their whatfor, MST3K style. There's a bar in back of the theater, you can yell at the movie all you want, and admission is FREE!

This sixth of May we'll lament a great tragedy, a widespread violation of human rights called Garbage Pail Kids. We already know that some things just don't translate well into the live-action medium. Did you know one of those things is baseball-type cards featuring ugly cartoon characters with clever names?

The ugly puppets sing, oh god, THEY SING! This movie is a tragic affront to every sensibility known to man. I'm just glad I was lucky enough not to come across it as a child. I have enough trouble sleeping as it is.

In addition to myself, I'll be subjecting veteran commenters Robert Wagner (PDX.fm) and Jay Mackin (Unibashradio) to this disgusting mess.

Green Light Movie...The Sustainable Oroville Project www.facebook.com/greenlightmovie
souk

Green Light Movie…The Sustainable Oroville Open House A call to action for leaders and press.

Being from the Pacific Northwest; you are considered a sustainability thought leader. You are cordially invited to our open house, a free solution based networking event.

Are you looking to get something out of the time you spend at a networking event? Do you attend green networking events to meet new people, or to participate in a solution?

Join the key Sustainable Oroville and Green Light Movie team for an engaging conversation. City leaders are saying YES to “green” through Sustainable Oroville – a civic initiative that already has attracted a canola crushing plant (which will produce canola oil and meal), as well as plans for the nation’s first sustainable, passive haus hotel. Since the launch of this initiative, Oroville is gaining attention from other clean-technology entrepreneurs and sustainability advocates who want to see it succeed.

So what’s the big deal? Oroville isn’t waiting around for the world to change … instead, it’s taking steps to change the world.

Oroville’s journey into sustainability will create a road map that other agriculture-dependent communities can adopt. Capturing this transformation in a documentary film creates a proof-of-concept that can be distributed worldwide. Through conversations with local leaders, business owners and residents, as well as sustainability movement leaders, we will show a grassroots effort creating change we NEED to see in the world.

This is your opportunity to play a part in a "think globally, act locally" solution that is happening right now while being documented in the Green Light Movie, the Sustainable Oroville Project film.

This is not your usual networking event. Stop by anytime between 3pm and 6pm. Stay as long as you like. Get one on one talking time with the thought leader visionaries. Listen to the vision, get questions answered, and see how YOU can intersect your experience, skills, and passion into this movement that is providing a solution to improve qualities of life in our very own Pacific Northwest communities.
