Han Lee Tears Up Blazing Horse In The ImaginAIRIUM

In September, 2010, Sean & Miranda invited Colleen & I to come to Ireland to play with Matilda & Alfie, see and shoot The Blazing Horse Festival and Ireland’s Copper Coast. We came, we saw -we were conqured.
The first Blazing Horse, musical performance occured as scheduled, before 98 % of the guests would arrive or did arrive. Elder was the opening act as he had another gig later that day. Poor Elder, he missed the rest of The Midnight Caberet.
I did not expect to be asked to film from stage, yet  there I was , with the best seat in the house, that David Curran built. For over 3 decades now, the video camera has give me great entree, or ticket to ride. I edited Elder’s video right away & soon it was on YouTube.
In October in St. Louis, Han Lee saw Elder’s Ireland performance, and started dancing to the music and  drawing the music . Han decided to to do a video portrat of himself dancing with Elder playing. I saw the video and decided to remix the 2 videos together.
Han has colloaborated with me through the years and has illustrated much music for many films we have on Youtube under the nom de plume of redkruzer.
I grew up with Mel Squires & Steve Nicholas. We walked to Mann, Beeber and  to Overbrook High School. We  were a half year ahead of Wilt Chamberlain.
Ira Davis did the broad jump, despite Dippy’s getting all the credit for that sort of thing. Bernie Diamond lived on Diamond St with Bernie Meyers. You may obtain the DVD of the Blazing Horse Festival from Sean, Tim, Dave and assorted others.

A Poisoning In The ImaginAIRium : Han Lee, Sean Tyrrell, Michael Hartnett: Belladonna In The Bar

Han Lee did the drawings. Feel woosey? The medium is the massage….

Han Lee’s Illustration of Bard Sean Tyrrell’s musical adaptation of Michael Hartnett’s Poem. Bard Tyrrell is legendary for his lyrical adaptations of the Irish Literary Giants.
BELLADONNA IN THE BAR                                                                                                             She sits, and spins, and makes no wool,
ovaries empty, belly full,
and all the pubby amber day
she waits for some be-lagered prey.

Her eyes, above her borrowed drink,
the hue of octopus’s ink,
regard me with baleful gaze.

She hopes an alcoholic haze
will open pocket, loosen tongue,
and when the information’s wrung
she’ll take the words and change them- quite
and embellish them with spite,

And envy’s rictus clamps her groin
as she sees each silvery coin,
each single five- and ten pound note
slide, destined for another’s throat,
across the counter for a drink-
she must replot, rescheme, rethink.

This mistress of stiletto-stabs
lets malice fall in dribs and drabs,
and when she drinks with friends of mine,
a little poison in their wine
makes women cautious, men suspect
that I’m the High Priest of her sect,
that all my moves are slyly planned,
that rumor is my magic wand”
that my end is exploitation,
that I, not she, will rob the nation.

So come you lushes, drinkers, topers,
be you residents or interlopers,
sail you on yachts or dhows or junks,
be you Sunday” or weekday-drunks-
beware this black and midnight hag
with venom in her shopping bag.

What is a Virtual ImaginAIRium ? Physical ImaginAIRium?

Cross Over The Bridge

On  February 10, 2010 , in MiamiToNewYork.com, Sean Corcoran wrote, describing a cross over ImaginAIrium, half virtual & half physical:

As the days count down, our concepts melt into reality. Here’s where it starts, a prelude to a Miami to New York movie perhaps. A fantastic 45 seconds of video brought to you from the iPhone of the “fearless” Redkruzer himself, Hy Mayerson;

Imagine that: An ImaginAIRium

Perhaps the first video introducing a virtual or crossover ImaginAIrium was RedKruzer’s May 15 2008 YouTube post, in which red commented:

“goin down the hallway of life,

we could never imagine who we will meet where…

it is all an ImaginAIRium.” :

This is a work in progress, to be continued, stay tuned….

Ireland: Damian Nixon in The ImaginAIRium

Damian Nixon reports on finding a new ImaginAIRium :

  Damian :  “Lovely day out but would have been a lovely day out anywhere. Ropebridge to a rock near Larrybane (means Ancient White Site in English). Takes about three minutes to walk around the top of the rock, after you pay money to queue to get to it across a rope-bridge. In olden times, the bridge was the only way fishermen could reach Carrick-a-Rede (means Rock in the Road) Island to catch salmon migrating from the Bush and Bann rivers. Worth seeing but not worth going to see, as a famous guy said about the giant’s causeway (Johnston I think he’s called). This wee vid will save ye all the bother. haha. (Beautiful scenery when the sun’s shining though). If you’re going, make sure you’re there very early, i.e. 8.30 a.m., or you’ll queue for an hour.”

I wonder if Damian looked at his camera’s monitor, crossing this mostly planked rope bridge, or did Damian mostly aim the camera?

Did he really say where his “schul played ball”?
