Free Space Comix has moved


I've had to start a new blog because I toasted my last server by putting all
those Flash Polaroids up -- the database got corrupted, so I couldn't
rebuild, but the content is all still there. I just won't be adding to it.

The new blog is located here, please change your links!

http://www.arras.net/fscII/

It still has that unlived in feel to it, that smell of disinfectent and
pleather that you get with a new car. Contents so far:

Electronic Desires, or Maxell's Demon (poem)

Naropa Sound Files (link)

p0es1s: The Aesthetics of Digital Poetry (review)

Photos from /UBU Opening, June 3rd at LFL Gallery in Chelsea

A blurb for Craig Dworkin's Strand

And there are some new flash polaroids:

The 365 Days Project
--------------------------------------

UbuWeb is pleased to announce the re-launch and permanent home of curator
Otis F. Odder's 365 Days Project. This legendary project, in which an MP3 a
day -- of mostly outsider, novelty, and oddball recordings -- was made
available for the public to download over the course of 2003. Briefly taken
offline at the end of the project, it is now presented here in its entirety,
complete with images and vast commentary on each selection. The 365 Days
Project is part of UbuWeb's redesigned, newly-named and much-expanded
Outsiders section.

Same footage, different concepts.

Runs really slow on older computers -- should run at 24fps, if it seems
slower than that then the computer's having problems with the programming.

Shot at the big book launch in Chelsea on Thursday.
