Proud to be relatedOne great thing about growing up, moving out, and living thousands of miles away from them for years is I'm finally able to see how amazingly cool my parents are. Here's an article about my Dad.
I just posted a bunch of stills from Sita Sings the Blues. For the time being I'm not posting any new movie clips (gotta preserve some mystery, ya' know?), so these static images will have to do.
I have to move again
My landlord's putting my apartment on the market this week, and my lease ends in November, so I'm cast into the New York rental wilderness yet again. As before, leads on apartments are greatly appreciated. If you're a wealthy homeowner, or perchance have a big mansion that feels a little empty, and long to hear the pitter-patter of little animator feet, you could put me up and write off the rent amount as a tax-deductable donation to the arts - it would directly support Sita Sings the Blues, as my main expense is staying alive while I work on it. Heck, for a deal like that I might even leave New York. Otherwise I can pay, as my "apartment wanted" listing on craigslist specifies.
"Madonna Meets Sita"If you thought my little project was bad, wait'll you see what fashion designer Satya Paul has cooked up. From Sepia Mutiny:
The multi-media show will highlight a fusion of the East and West. The mythological Sita - heroine of the Indian epic, the Ramayana - will be “teamed” with Madonna, the entertainment legend. The Madonna who appears in Satya Paul’s collection mirrors the star in her self confidence and sophistication. At her core is Sita, the woman of timeless elegance, mystery and purity. Satya Paul’s collection brings out the sensuality of the East, blended with the gritty worldliness of the West.
That's the kind of tree my critics should be barking up. And if it's not already obvious, Satya Paul is Indian.
