jjmaccrimmon: (Nightmare Before Christmas)
I learned last night that a friend in the burlesque community died suddenly. Brian Chic was a noted song writer, musician, comedian and truly unique burlesque performer. Although he dabbled in many performance venues, Brian was regarded as the premier bullwhip artist on the west coast and probably in the United States. Brian could almost casually snake a 9 to 12’ bullwhip out and carefully strip his lovely performance assistant of their costume. He could remove items from their hand and seamlessly entwine their body in the coils with style and grace. In person, Brian was a consummate gentleman. He and I chatted many times after performance we were at, and he was always an easy-going, relaxing force in the venue. More than a few times, we chatted about our mutual roots in the Louisville area.

Brian passed from this world unto the next on Saturday, June 23rd. At present, I haven’t heard what the cause might have been, but his passing is confirmed on his website (www.brianchic.com). Without a doubt, Brian you will be missed.

Greetings gang,

In a nice public post I just wanted to everyone know I hadn't fallen in the sea or down a mine shaft. With a few exceptions, I've been busily working on selecting and choosing photos for my Fright Night LA "artist of the month" gig. I've narrowed down the list to about 75 images from the last few years of abandoned places photography. The goal is to narrow the selections down to a mere 30 images.

I've sent off images to "QOOP" the company handles printing for Photobucket. I ordered sample batches of several (smaller) sized prints to check resolution levels. For most images, I can upload the image in large format and print up to an 8" x 12" high resolution pic. I'm likely going to pick 4 or 5 images I consider the very best and get them printed as poster sized prints. I'll back these on foam board and may put them in simple frames.

In general, I think the process is going well and things should be ready (at least the small prints for sure) in time for the show. I'll have a table and such available but an inteesting thought has crossed my mind. If I'm being the good business person and selling (I hope) my photos, who's going to be taking even photos that night?.. Conversely who could or would mind the booth?.. Curiouser and curiouser..
