HYDLE – Austin to Boston


[YouTubeUlar] <— 17 short views Playing in Austin and heading to Boston... both of these cities have been long over due and I love them both... for their own reason. Thank you to the McCormicks for the amazing sunsets and water adventures... and thank you to Emily Helm for Mr. Dooley's and the 7 hour layover in Boston! Rock on! Hydle

Hide and Go Media – Concept

‘Hide And Go Media’ Temporary gallery installations 6-12 month installations:

Infrastructure (must be inexpensive):

Downtown commercial space near colleges (slightly off the beaten path)
Simple beverage snack bar (coffee – Hydle has the hook up)
Wifi (must capture audience and allow users to upload)
Electricity (helps sometimes)
Simple gallery decor, white / black walls ready for audience art and participation
Modern comfortable lounge furniture
As much street side glass as possible (so when it is closed the media can still play and crowds accumulate at the store front)
Need hot event coordinator to book events, preferably single…

Concept:

Media age has caused every individual to amass absurd amounts of video. So much we have no use for it all, or even have the time to look at it. Concept create a physical space for people to bring, create it on the fly, dump it and show it. No need to edit, just push play and watch ourselves raw 24-7. We can set it up for all media, from 8mm, 16mm, VHS, digital etc. Fill the space with as many screens and projections, displays as possible, gotta have the overwhelming factor. It could be almost like a ‘Physical Facebook Space’, almost mocking in nature. Allow people leave a picture / video of themselves by instant up load to the server. Feed the ‘disease of me.’ It could be a place to blog old school, by writing on the actual walls with real pens, paint etc. The gallery space would morph based on the city and culture. Travel city to city, start in Austin, TX. At the end take a picture and hit DELETE!

How to make money:

Private events
Concerts
Donations to Joel’s Foundation / Film Schools
Sell lots of coffee
Sell real art (the good stuff)
(NEED MORE THOUGHT HERE! PRETTY IMPORTANT PIECE HERE)

Ideas…Go, More!

BHTM 2008 to 2010 Recap


[iPhone Link]

I somehow popped backstage last night at BHTM 2010 Live at Red Rocks without ever having a ticket. It was a good show – with sun, rain, a torrential downpour and meeting new friends — but nothing compares to the 06/07/08 four hour live recording dvd show.

From me to you… enjoy the adventure.
Rock on.

From last night:
