Marjane Satrapi's books are mindblowing and the film is no less spectacular.

Just gorgeous. Some moments of weird editing, but in a way those moments are part of the magic of a graphic-novel-to-film adaptation.

Incidentally, the movie phone guy mispronounces the title "PersOpolis". Harumph.

global toasting

It's presently warmer in NYC than it is in SF.

That is totally fucked.

That's all for now.

Culturemart @ HERE

Come see Water, part of Culturemart at HERE Arts on Jan 8 and 9.

I'll be there in image and voice, but not in the flesh because I'll be out of town.

I have a cameo as an Australian standup comic in this fantastic collaboration by Sheila Callaghan, Daniella Topol, and Bill Cusick.

There are plenty of other exciting works-in-progress (all part of the residency program at HERE) in Culturemart as well. I'm hoping to catch the South Wing performance.

If you do go on the 8th or 9th, let me know your thoughts after the performance.

For more info, and to preview clips of artists’ work,


Tickets ($15) are available online or by calling 212-352-3101. Performances are at 8:30 at HERE on Spring and 6th Ave.
