Zinecon 2000 video post #3

    Yep more Zinecon reporting.  I had a great time at this event.  A super cool, unpretentious attitude was present.   Maybe these vids help to capture that feeling?  There is still too much in the way of technical glitches but who gives a shit?  It's still great to see.  Hope you enjoy.

    A short interview with Corny and Larry Brough.  Panic Inc. is the record label Larry Brough started in the mid 90's.  They released quite a few records over the years and are still quite active producers of true Las Vegas Hardcore.  Much respect.  At the time him and Corny were in a band called H P Lori and they were fucking amazing.

    HP Lori played this Zinecon and I don't know why I can't find any footage of that performance because it was  fucking rad.  I seem to recall that Amy Carrelli had hired this bogus sound company to use their PA and was arguing with the sound guy who was sitting at the huge sound board before the bands started.  The sound was pretty bad and then when HP Lori came on the mics were total shit.  So Corny pushed the microphone away from him and it took the sound board and flipped it over onto the ground!  It was a total spectacle.  Damn.  Wish I'd been recording when that happened.  They were an amazing band.  Both guys are cool and I wish the best for both of them.  I'm super glad Corny is no longer going out with that psycho girl he was seeing back then.

    On a side note both those guys came through Portland years ago and we went to see Mastodon.  Just saying.

   Short chat with Sara, Mike, and Melinda.  I'm pretty sure that's her name, I didn't ask in the video.  This was probably the most casual interview so far at least from my point of view.  I'd lossened up a little bit.  I don't know.

   Wow.  Food Not Bombs!  Food Not Bombs has the strangest history in Las Vegas.  Just last month I was reading in USA Today and the supreme court in Nevada ruled that it was legal to feed the homeless which I have to assume is a direct result of the work Food Not Bombs has done in Las Vegas over the last jeez 15 years.  I'm pretty far removed from FNBLV so imagine my surprise when I saw their new website.  Awesome.  

    Interviews with three cool ladies.  God the sound quality is horrible.  There's nothing I could do to fix it so what you get is what you get.  All three of these ladies are super cool.  I'm bad with last names and will probably mess up the spelling but I remember them as Sara, Jahira, and Sierra.  Unfortunately the tape sucks.    Sorry the sound quality is pretty bad.  And the video breaks up a whole bunch on this clip.  There's nothing I can do to fix it.  Should I even upload this?  At least you can see some broken up video of three cute girls.  Also I forget that guys name who hugs Sierra.  He's cool.  I'm getting more informal here and now.

    So yeah.  The shit hits the fan as far as technical quality goes for these next few clips.  Once again you get a fuckload of jumpcuts.  An interview with Polar Bear Vixen a Sci-Fi/Horror type zine.  It gets the point across of what this guy and his zine is about but maybe you should tell me your opinion about whether I should bother to upload videos with this many glitches in em.  I think it's still a good thing to do.  Let me know if I'm wasting your time.

    Walking around at Zinecon 2000.  

    More activist friends interviewed at Zinecon.  

    Interview with Brad Crutchfield.  I sold him my copy of Bauhaus "Bela Lugosi's Dead." at a yard sale.  So that proves he's a cool guy right?  Blue vinyl too.

    Shit.  It pisses me off that this videotape got screwed up.  This guy was among the most talented people I met at Zinecon.  I think the name of his comic/magazine is Usurp Toe.  I bought an issue and it was hilarious!  His artwork seriously kicks ass.  Amazing detail plus he's really funny as well.  He also had hand painted shirts for sale with his artwork.  He's wearing one of his hand painted shirts.  What a cool guy.  Where is this guy?  Please tell me!!

    He had a solid internet presence back then.  A recent check on the GOOGLE found nothing which does not bode well.  If you have any information about this man and his work please get in touch.  I would love to know more.

  So yeah most of this footage is fucked up.  But look how young you look!
