So tomorrow's the big day. The one where we get up ridiculously early and drive 9 hours to the New York City, where the Bicycle Film Festival circut for 2011 begins Wednesday.

This year is a big one. My collective, The Deadly Nightshades are premiering our short film FABRIC BIKE (directed by Kirsten White & I) in the BFF's Urban Shorts Program. We are also exhibiting the bike itself at the opening for JOYRIDE in Soho.

This is my second time showing as artist at JOYRIDE in New York, but my first year participating in the festival as a film maker - and I think ecstatic is the only way to classify how I'm feeling right now.

Saturday, June 25th
Anthology Film Archives
32 2nd Ave, at 2nd St.

Thirtieth birthdays for friends come but once. Good thing dance parties to the supremes & joe strummer can happen any old day. But on Friday, I decided to commemorate only one of those events with a poster.

Which made me think of the last birthday party I attended for the big 3-0, where I was forced to dress like loretta lynn and bike out to sunnyside pool. Some people say 30 is the new 20. I say 30 is the new off-season halloween danceparty.

Man I love my friends.
