“A History of Evil” is an unfinished animated documentary/mockumentary created by Ole-Magnus Saxegard as a student project at the University of Technology in Sydney that explores the history and perceptions of evil in Western civilization.Via laughingsquid
“The Kid Stays In The Picture” director Brett Morgan who says he’s been given “sort of” approval to make a mixed-media/ animation documentary on Cobain (sounds like it won’t be that disimilar to the way ‘Kid’ was made and that doc was fantastic).
“Courtney Love sort of sanctioned me to do. And we’ll probably start that sometime this year. The Kurt Cobain film I want to start in the next few months, but I think it’s going to take 3 or 4 years to make,” .
A big coup is the fact, Morgan says he’ll have the rights to Nirvana music and rare Cobain home movies. Animated might be fun….maybe in the style of Heavy Metal.

HARMONY IN MY HEAD
On Tuesday, Shepard will be the guest DJ on Henry Rollin’s show “Harmony in My Head” along with legendary skateboarder Tony Alva. The show is on LA’s indie 103.1 FM. If you are not in LA listen online at www.indie1031.fm.
Shepard and Tony Alva recently collaborated on a poster. “The poster is my illustration of a photo of Tony from 1977 by photographer Glen E. Friedman.” Check out his site www.burningflags.com. To celebrate the release of the Alva collaboration, there will be a party/art opening Sat. March 8 at the Alva store at 1086 S. Fairfax. The posters will be available online March 11. They are signed by me, Tony, and Glen. After a few clicks to Glen’s site we also noticed that there will be a Public Enemy poster coming out later as well. Here is a photo from Glen’s site.
Via Burningflags.com…”GEF has recently finished working on two collaborations with graphic artist Shepard Fairey. They are using iconic GEF photographs of Tony Alva and Public Enemy for limited edition graphic posters done in the usual Fairey style. Signed by Friedman, Fairey, and Alva/Chuck D. to be sold in the coming months to collectors through the Obey Giant web site. (We will post sale dates as soon as they are announced since these tend to sell out pretty quickly.)” … to thinks to buy real soon! good luck.

We just received a copy of Elbow‘s new album, “the seldom seen kid”. So far its epic. “Grounds for divorce”, maybe my favorite. Although as I write this I am only through track 6. The new album comes out in March 17, I highly recommend picking it up, or downloading it.
