Three Friends Mondays: Caffeinated Art #28

Michael Hart, Lou and Anthony

Don’t expect Broken Hours to take the quiet life, a handshake of carbon monoxide, no alarms and no surprises.  Not at this stage, not while the Three Friends Coffee House is setting ’em up, Joe.  Such a pretty house, such a pretty garden, no surprises, though, that Lou Guidi invited Anthony to constitute the duo of Lou and Anthony at 01/19/01’s Three Friends Mondays: Caffeinated Art.  No surprises either, that the mandated third friend should be  Michael Hart (reference The Show and Tell Gallery Podcast #7), who remarked, “I’m glad you guys are all here celebrating the last painful day of destruction” (such a pretty sentiment – we hope he’s right).  And no alarms, please.

Not that we don’t want surprises – we are already working in tandem, after all, with Show and Tell Gallery Productions‘ surprise-purveyor Melissa Sillitoe in order to cast these rites podways.  However, we do love music, and Lou, Anthony and Michael are as earnest about music as a heart that’s full up like a landfill, a job that slowly kills you, bruises that won’t heal.  You were so tired, happy, bring down the government, they don’t, they don’t speak for her.

Then it’s up to the Show and Tell Open Mic, which welcomes alarms, surprises even, despite its auto-incestuous, numerical sequencing.   And such pretty pleasant surprises were to be had in welcoming Julia Dawn (in reference to whom the adjective “pretty” constitutes an understatement), as well as Nikki Jauron stirring her Hot Sauce-Flavored Coffee, and future (February 2, 2009) Three Friends invitee-gesticulator Michael Berton.  Neither could it have been everything it was without the participation of Christian (“like the religion”), Wayne Flower and Dwight Peters (let us hope that certain invitations are in the mail).   Melissa “The Inviter” Sillitoe (avec et sans Luke Lefler, choosing the quiet life), past 3FM:CA invitees Brittany Baldwin, Mike “Headed For” G(reatness)  and Rick J (also a future (01/26/09) Three Friends invitee-gesticulator), and at least one surprise, grated for headness, brought up most of the rest of the proceedings.

On an internet that’s full up like a landfill, a connection that slowly kills you, bruises that won’t Google, you might never find the podcast on the Three Friends Mondays: Caffeinated Series page at brokenhours.net if you don’t know where to look.  Or, you were so tired, happy, and you had it brought to you via iTunes, which let you do that without alarms, nor surprises, such a pretty link:

The Show and Tell Gallery Podcast #7

As hard to believe as it may be, the First Thursday opening at The Show and Tell Gallery on December 4, 2008, came off smoothly although the absence of vacationing curator Melissa Sillitoe made for a comparatively low-key event.  In her stead Luke Lefler, the Gallery’s shy and quiet Digital Media Producer, hosted the reception for Robin Carlisle.  Among the works on display were several from Robin’s house series: “I have painted hundreds of little house paintings and they just seem to keep coming out of me.  Mainly they are cute and warm and cozy and soft.  But they are also a super strong symbol to me.  They are little capsules, like diaries that tell stories.   They hold the most intimate details of people’s lives, histories, futures, dreams and emotions.”  Unfortunately Robin had had a pair of wisdom teeth extracted earlier in the day and she had to excuse herself before the music program which was put together by Michael Hart.  Michael and musician invitees Ray Ottoboni, Michael Pan and Lou & Anthony, as well as the sounds of people mingling and Luke interjecting a flaccid welcome to those in attendance, may all be heard on The Show and Tell Gallery Podcast.
