Un|Herd #14: Soup Purse

program date: 
Tue, 03/16/2010

Thank you for tuning in to Un-Herd Archive series episode 14. This show dates to Nov 23 2009. This program was originally shared with episode 13 featured performance Deeds. Now its time for something totally different, the artist we call Soup Purse. Todd Dickerson, a performer and scholar of noise, a seer of visions, he is the man behind Soup Purse. He is nothing less than a fixture of the Portland noise scene and a respected fellow for that matter. His performance is more than sound, its divination. He borrows from the early surrealists in terms of method but not necessarily form. He also incorporates some spoken theatrical performance in to each show, but not in this program, oddly, perhaps he prefers an audience to feed from.

Tim Dalbow talks about his painting

Timothy Scott Dalbow has an interesting show up at the New American Art Union called “I Don’t Know Anyone in Paris.” The artist moved into the space, using it as his studio, painting mostly at night. The gallery claims that it’s “an act of reversal and post-studio critique.”

Timothy Scott Dalbow has an interesting show up at the New American Art Union called “I Don’t Know Anyone in Paris.” The artist moved into the space, using it as his studio, painting mostly at night. On the opening night, there was only a big white, bare canvas, a couple of rockers lined up as if they were to view the ocean, some small ink drawings and signs of preparation and anticipation.

The appointment of Multnomah County Chair Ted Wheeler as state treasurer last Tuesday churned county and state political waters this week. Wheeler, appointed by Governor Kulongoski to fill the vacancy created by State Treasurer Ben Westlund's death, is now better positioned to advance up the ladder of statewide offices. At the county level, meanwhile, his departure has set off a scramble for his and County Commissioner Jeff Cogen's seat - Cogen throwing his hat in the ring to be the county's top executive. What will Wheeler's departure mean for residents of Oregon's most populous county? Jo Ann and Dave look at what's ahead for the candidates and county residents.

Do not see this movie! Review of "Remember Me" opening today (March 12)


Remember Me
Director: Allen Coulter
With: Robert Pattinson, Emilie de Ravin, Chris Cooper, Pierce Brosnan, Tate Ellington, et al.

I can’t stress strongly enough that you do not see this awful movie.  I will gladly spoil the vile ending on this shameless piece of crap.  The writer, Will Fetters, and the director, Allen Coulter, should be ashamed of themselves.  This movie exploits human misery for a cheap soap-opera of a story, including the worst mass murder in US history.

Review of "Green Zone," opening today (March 12)


Green Zone
Director: Paul Greengrass
With: Matt Damon, Greg Kinnear, Brendan Gleeson, Yigal Naor, Khalid Abdalla, Amy Ryan, etc.

A fictional riff on how and why we got into the Iraq war, with the CIA coming off as the good guys, and one dedicated soldier, Miller (Damon), who wants to get to the bottom of the whole mess.
