not a corridor, really

i mean it, not a corridor

i mean it, not a corridor

Someone pointed out the highly formal language appearing in East Bay Express and Estuary Art Attack promo referring to “the artists of the illuminated corridor”. Eyebrow raised. But really, truly, the side projects (here, or here) are really intentionally not Corridors, which have all kinds of risk and velocity. There are these other quiet corners for concentration, and, in some cases, incubation.

But it’s a big summer for outdoor cinema in Oaklandia, based, imho, on a sophisticated civic assumption and the cost of an indoor movie ticket: Temescal, Jack London Square, new indoor work from Swarm, Great Wall’s monthly screening and the persistent feeling that one can’t go out without seeing something lit up just because we can, just because we (in that cinema paradiso way), should.

The East Bay Express really wanted a Corridor, but were very cool and accepting of the alternative.  Look for a little bit of  Liberation Drive-In that night.
