Well it went. Vons Record Store Day. Jurassic Pop put on an awesome festival. Some more audio to follow. We were really blown away by one particular set by a new up and coming band, The Unusual Few.

Self-described as, a “Filth Pop” band from Lafayette, IN. Influenced by everything from 60s garage to 90s alternative, deriving mostly from old school punk rock, a great band for angsty teens. Raw energy. Loud performance. Bloody bass. Check out our bootleg of the spectacle.

Poetry: Artistic Constraints Vol. 1

All poems were written with at least two people at the local Von’s Books in Chauncey Village. The process was simple; draw a symbol at random (contained within our FluxKit) and then create a syllabic constraint for the others to follow. Below is some of our output:

blue tie tight collar
sweaty palms licking fingers
cash flowing through them

***

toe nails dig in deep
“i will not!” screamed the small man
sinking deeper still

***

traffic jamming all up in my shit
honk bonk squank kill. another ticket is all
you see, good lawyers are friends of mine

***

suns hurt my eyes ever so
can it be true? what i feel for you
comprehension is all mine

***

smirk, sag. droopy eyes.
crushed beneath grey sky giants
not ready to quit

***

field of shrooms outer
flocking fungus, private land
green green green grass glows

***

gated neighborhood
penned with gilded cages
behind curtains, eyes.

***

arrows pushing round
friction. friction. mass head sound.
hot. hot. then sweet cold.

***

two eyes and a nose
in shadows painted on the kitchen wall
toiling over you

***

acknowledgement, taking, self.
flowing wallpaper is very nice
sing damnit. sing your heart out.

***

commercially made
from the finest fibers found
nested in pockets

***

i don’t want jock itch
clean underwear means success
dry, powder me please
potato here, there
eyes blink, over and over
why are you looking

***

opening our jar
inside taste; the big surprise
nummy, nummy, yum

***

passing through course. lead.
me to a bigger surprise
pay attention please

***

money at my door
knock knock. who is it? knock knock
aaron burr bang bang

***

on a frosty mountain top
eating the heart of the core above
they are abominable

***

inspiration leaps down up
hammer of the law smacks down clap. clap
i float between clogged clocks

***

starry eyes wrapping around tightly
the night is young, the man is old and cannot see
so he reaches into memory

***

spouty water leaves
rolling up the tree slowly
lapping wholeness. yum

***

hot girders in rusty sunlight
cracking open a coarse smile
driftwood on the beach

***

artistic constraints
like fingers on my left hand
knees. toes. nose. bows. rose.

What’s up with that? S04E04 – 11-13-2010 – Breakfast Club (Purdue vs. Michigan)

themediacollective.org - What's up with that? - Logo
What’s up with that? A show not hosted by Ryan Hill. The intro music was created by The Media Collective.

Here is What’s up with that? season 4, episode 4. A chilly, overcast Saturday morning. The poor weather did not detour people from participating in the festivities. We even met an interesting group of munchkins and Scrabble Pieces. As usual, we stood in our spot out by the brick wall in front of Jake’s taking everything in that is Breakfast Club.

The questions asked in this episode were:

  1. You find a lame duck on your way back from class, how do you care for it?
  2. What is the most invasive way to be searched to ensure the safety of others?
  3. How do you feel about the government sponsorship of Call of Duty: Black Ops?
  4. What books would you like to see pulled and burned from libraries, Amazon, Borders, Von’s?
