Re: “Victor’s Second Annual Steampunk Festival

REALLY!!!!
True I don't know the whole story.... But, my first reaction is as follows: So sad that this and GalaxyFest are on the exact same dates.... It's not like there are just so many "local sub-culture" opportunities and events that they need to be in direct conflict and cut-throat competition to prove one is better than the other. If I could- I would support them both and love them both equally - - When I'm forced to choose between one or the other everyone loses out!! The supporting community, the individuals, the event, the vendors, the hosts, ect.... Its bad business practice, business sense, and bad public relations. These event opportunities are too precious and wonderful to be caught-up in a pissing match for the audience's attention. I hope I just don't have the right info, and correct me if I'm wrong, But I hope this is NOT an example of how things are done in the future. We should NEVER have to choose between events that support and share a common interest and purpose. The audience won't respond well to being in the middle of a tug-o-war for attention and recognition. We love and want you both. I sincerely hope this is a mistake and everyone can play nice, be friendly, and come to a better play-date arrangement. This simply won’t do. I want my cake and to eat it too, it's just who I am!!!
Personal note to: Victor steampunk Fest II and it master Mind Doc Cowles:
I know this has probably become a hot topic for you and that it is unlikely there is any "one" specific reason how this conflict happened... But I feel your pain and figure you are the one getting the shaft from the "BIG" City, Yes from the sidelines it looks like they are being Jerks and Stealing your thunder (I don't know the whole story so i may be Wrong). If I could I would be there for you - and I'd bring my friends- But I have other obligations I this weekend and can't make it. Please Don't let these unfortunate circumstances affect your hopes for the future of the Steampunk Fest- I really hope this year’s dates overlapping doesn't dishearten you for your efforts and the love for your event. You are appreciated and your Festival is Loved. You do have an audience and we support you. The general Hope is that TIME and experience is the solution to finding the formula that allows for the BIG City and the Country Cousin to both have their Day of Glory. ~We luv U man~

Re: “Protest!

Have you ever noticed that a lot of contemporary art looks like "contemporary art"? Shit looks like "contemporary art" as if it were a clothing style or a military uniform. It's like Scandinavian furniture with a turd plopped on it - dirty pseudo modernism, basically. Art students pick up on this format expectation pretty quick & curators definitely exploit the fuck out of it & so everyone's happy, I guess. Most contemporary gallery curators should have gone into the fashion industry instead of the art industry. Oh, wait, THEY HAVE. PROTEST!

Re: “Waddie Mitchell, Sons and Brothers

An Army Chaplain uses some of Waddie's Poems in his therapy sessions with soldiers. He said, "People seem to understand Waddie, even if they've never seen a cow." I couldn't agree more. That combined with the super tight harmonies of Sons and Brothers... it was an incredible night.

Re: “Andrew Beckham: Firmament

This collection of photos inspires me. It demonstrates the magic that can happen in relationship between humankind and the environment. Andrew Beckham shares his love for the common, for the ethereal, for the orderly chaos that is nature. There is a golden thread connecting it all and this work is an invitation to be part of that connection. Blake Milteer has supported this exhibit well; in providing an open space that allows the viewer to rest and to relate with each piece. Together: artist, curator, and environment - our senses are called out to join the experience.

Re: “Emma Crawford Coffin Races & Parade

Fabulous event to go and people watch! The parade is fun and led by a group of custom hearses. A must see event if you like Halloween. Every year the attendance grows and it becomes more and more crowded but it is well worth braving the crowds. Some of the race teams put a lot of time and effort into creating their coffin and costumes. Support them by showing up to watch the race. Oh and you can stop at any of the local eateries for lunch and then browse through the shops afterwards. A great way to support Manitou Springs.
