Come see the Museum of History and Industry, Seattle’s history museum, at their new South Lake Union location. I acted as curator for their first special exhibit, a little number we call “Celluloid Seattle: A City at the Movies.” There’s more info here.
June 20, I’ll be in Port Townsend, WA, to give a talk in conjunction with the “Hope in Hard Times” exhibit at the Jefferson County Historical Society; we’ll look at 1930s Hollywood films that captured the radical spirit loose during the Great Depression.
June 21, the members of Framing Pictures convene at the Northwest Film Forum for another conversation about what’s happening in the movies these days. Join us at 5 p.m.; the event is free. More here.
Out now: the first two volumes of Rotten, a wild, provocative, and gory graphic novel I have co-authored with Mark Rahner (art by Dan Dougherty). It’s a zombie Western set in 1877, with overtones of recent U.S. political history. Or possibly undertones. Click on my Rotten tab above for further info and marching orders. Order the Rotten trade paperbacks at the Rotten website and see cover art here. The Rotten page at Moonstone, where you can also order the Rotten book The Lost Diary of John J. Flynn, U.S. Agent, is here. Check the Rotten music video here.
Most Wednesday mornings at 10:20 on KUOW (94.9 FM, kuow.org) I join Steve Scher on “Weekday” to talk about movies and culture; the archived sessions can be heard later.
