Amid all the meetings and the worries about the future and the burnout and the occasional disagreements and resentments and the admin and the annoying people and the problems and the failures and the near-successes and the things-not-running-quite-perfectly
I worry that we forget how amazing this building/community/idea/chaos is and that we have amazing free events and workshops almost every day and that it's driven by soul and love and energy not by state and power and profit and that we've been creating a space for free culture for ten years and that we have supported a huge number of artists who wouldn't be where they are without us and that we've enabled literally thousands of people to share their creativity and learn something new and that we are a fun&inspiring (if exhausting) place to be
which is all quite important, because that's why we do all things we do because it's great to do that stuff even when it's tiring&heartbreaking.
Thought it might be worth pointing out again. Apologies (or not) for excess enthusiasm.
Scout and Joey, we MISS YOU. Big up the Tazzie (Rain)Forest.

If you truly love film, I think the healthiest thing to do is not read books on the subject. I prefer the glossy film magazines with their big colour photos and gossip columns, or the National Enquirer. Such vulgarity is healthy and safe. ~ Werner Herzog
