This James Adomain guy has been making me laugh this week. Especially his take on the history of Gay Villainy which he teases out even further in a fully costumed performance as the Sheriff of Nottingham on Comedy Central's The Meltdown which is performed live at a comic book store in LA.

A View To A Spill

Added on by Jesse Walker.

I had the honor, along with my friend DJ Hot Noise to play at the 2014 Psicobloc Masters Series competition this past Friday at Park City's Utah Olympic Park. It was so cool to watch some of the best climbers in the world attack the specially designed solo climbing wall and then drop from up to 50 feet into the water. Here are a few moments we captured from inside and out of our neat bubble tower DJ booth, playing to a crowd of thousands. You can also stream the entire competition filmed by Louder Than 11 here.

Anonymous Places of the 20st Century

Added on by Jesse Walker.

"The New World" revisits anonymous places of the 20th century. The interrelation of rational graphic design and anonymous photorealism reflects the contrast of manmade ideals and the acceptance of life in chaos. "The New World" is shaped by an original set of rules, metrics and processes. This enables the revelation of eclectic utopias that, for better or worse, withhold the definition of a photograph. Visit: Geebird & Bamby. Prints and mounting also available at

Choreography by Charlotte Boye-Christensen / Dancers: Jo Blake, Yumelia Garcia, Jenn Freeman / Actors: Alexandra Harbold, Robert Scott Smith / Music by Jesper Egelund / Text by Troy Deutsch NOW-ID.COM

NOW-ID has been working with local editor Chris Howard to finish a short film of "FEAST", set to Jesper Egelund's music. Even though it obviously can't beat seeing the work "Live" - it still gives a glimpse into the world that was created out at the Great Saltair last May. See the film here.

We are taking "FEAST" to Kansas in November to the Kansas Dance Festival, where we are collaborating with the dance and music departments at the University of Wichita to build even further on the original piece.

Saturday July 26, Jay Brannan, Kelli Moyle, Jesse Walker @ Urban Lounge

Added on by Jesse Walker.

I'll be commandeering a dance party following the Jay Brannan show this Sat., July 26th at Urban Lounge. More at >>> Tickets here!

Texas-born singer, songwriter, and actor Jay Brannan's angelic voice and folky, acoustic approach may make him appear like a garden-variety contemporary singer/songwriter, but his musical sensibility brings him closer to hard-to-fit-in-a-box female artists like Ani DeFrancoLisa LoebSinéad O'Connor, and Liz Phair, and he sounds like nothing so much as a male version of Joni Mitchell at times. Brannan appeared as Seth in John Cameron Mitchell's 2006 film Shortbus, and his song "Soda Shop" was featured prominently in the film's soundtrack. Brannan released a limited-edition four-song EP called disasterpiece (it has also been listed as Unmastered) featuring "Soda Shop" that same year, amending it with two additional songs for a second 2008 edition of disasterpiece in 2008. Later that year he finally released a full-length effort, Goddamned. In 2012, Brannan returned with Rob Me Blind, featuring the single "Greatest Hits." – Artist Biography by Steve Leggett (All Music)
