COM: New MRF Films

I have taken tons of film in the last couple of weeks and hope to have many, many things posted soon (although i never have time for the "soon" part of it). I have managed however to get a few things posted at YouTube.

First is a double clip of Chris Bakka of Wimberley reading a short story at the Texas Book Festival at the Texas State Capitol. Chris won the 2007 UIL Short Story contest.

Second is one of my favorite writers, Sherman Alexie, at a Texas Book Festival Young Adult Novel panel discussion, with a hilarious reading from his book and answering follow up questions.

Third is a clip of Joe Ely and his band doing Tom Russell's sublime Gallo del Cielo on the steps of the state capitol.

All these were filmed on 3 November 2007. I also hope to get clips up soon from the same day of other Joe Ely songs, plus some from Johnny Bush, some other author clips, and of author/actor Marleee Matlin from the book festival; and from the Austin PowWow of Mark Standing Eagle Baez, and Calvin Little Eagle, as well as the award-winning drum Sizzortail and the dancers. Stay tuned.
