As of next week, I will cease to forward any event announcements or newsletters to the original group -- it will exist for art-related chit-chat and IRL meeting planning only (although members are still welcome to forward events and news to that group, if they want -- I'll be happy to forward them on to the other group, as well). The new group is where I will be forwarding everything to from then on. Messages, Links and the Calendar will be accessible to the public (although, I discovered, you must have a Yahoo ID to view the calendar, regardless of your membership status). Files, Photos, Databases and other features will be member-only, so there is SOME benefit to membership (membership requests will not be moderated). Posting is moderator-only, although I am willing to give semi-mod posting privileges to anyone who plans to forward events weekly or monthly. Anyone can send an announcement they want posted on the group to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
While I've tried to keep all discussion group members within the local Houston area, I am not concerned with the location of subscribers to the announcement group. If you are curious about what goes on in the Houston, Texas Art Scene, by all means then, come join up!

provides streaming independent films of many genres from music videos to
3D animation. We just went up on May15th, and I am putting this here because this community has art and film as its interests. We are looking for submissions, comments, reviews, and help to create more avenues for all artists. Here are examples of what is available on the web site.
2001- Hollywood, CA
|In the year 2001, there were 236 confirmed Bigfoot sightings in the United States.Yet in the same year, there were only 12 confirmed Axl Rose sightings. For the past ten years, one of rock¹s most recognizable figures has been in hiding, and only a handful of people have ever seen him in public.
What does Axl Rose look like now?
How does he dress?
Where does he eat?
Is he more afraid of us than we are of him?
This short film is a collection of actual eyewitness accounts from people who have spotted this reclusive rockstar in recent years.

But what if it was a comedic hit man movie? Like some of the hit-men are REAL stupid...... everything goes wrong..... and the people they have to kill are ridiculous.... How many times has that been done before? what do you guys think? Any ideas?

june 25th: something, we haven't decided what yet.
august 6th: (possible hiatus due to moving)
yes, there is geeksonfilm tonight. if concerts on the square are cancelled, i hope that gaggle will still come. i've got a myriad of movies, or someone can bring one of their own to pass. movies start at 7:30, we'll decide what to watch when everyone gets here.
hope to see you then; let me know if anyone needs directions!
I am a film geek. Specifically, I enjoy indie films. I was glad to see Secretary was the first film out of the gate. I was also sad, because I missed it.
Okay, let me back up. I'm being a bit presumptuous.
I'm Jasmine. My boyfriend, D, and I are really interested in watching some flicks with a few locals who can appreciate an odd film or two.
The thing is I'm not so sure this happily-little-geek-group is open to newcomers.
Sooooo, here I am with questions a plenty. (And yes, I haven't read the mailing list yet which probably answers all my queries anyway. *smile*)
1) Are you guys open to two new people?
2) Do you usually watch indie/unusual/not mainstream necessarily?
3) How many people are in the group?
4) How long do you guys plan to get keep the group up (is this only a summer thing)?
5) Do you normally meet on Weds only?
6) Can I be any more verbose in an introductory post?
Thanks in advance!
