White Elephant Art Swap
A much needed community! Hopefully more people will join. The Bay Area is, after all the DIY capital of the USA. Well, for the few who are in the community, I'm doing an art swap and am low on entries. Please pass the word along. The more people who enter the more fun it all will be. Details below!

White Elephant Art Swap

Do you paint? Write poetry? Make erotic art sculptures of Dave
Chappelle? Well then this might be the thing for you!

DJ Death Squad Productions is putting on its first however-so-often-
it-happens White Elephant Art Swap. You give art. You get art. From
someone you totally don't even know! Interested? Follow this yellow
brick road of guidelines:

1) You must have an original artwork (any medium- words, paint,
tunes, etc.) in mind before you sign up, and you must give a detailed
description and/or photo with your sign up. To sign up send your full
name and mailing address to djdeathsquad@gmail.com. I will collect
around 50 names / artists before cutting off the swap. US addresses
only at the moment for postage / timing reasons, although I will be
organizing a worldwide art swap at a later date if this works out.
Artworks must be of your own original creation although
collaborations are still considered groovy.

2) The official swap will be held on March 10th, 2007. On this date
you will receive the mailing address of the person you should send
your artwork to. Your artwork must be mailed no later than March 20th.

3) On March 10th another artist will have received your mailing
address and will be sending you an artwork. This will not likely be
the same person you sent artwork to.

4) After the swap, if you would like to share a photo or comments
regarding the artwork, you can email them to me and I will slap them
up on a really sexy art swap community page I have yet to build.

Questions? Post 'em! I'm ready. Oh and please pass the word along!

SF bay area FLESH MOB
Hi folks,

I'd like to announce the SF Bay Area Flesh Mob!

What is a FLESH MOB?

"Flesh Mob" is a play on the phrase, "flash mob," an event in which a large group of people gathers simultaneously in a public place for a brief period of time, then disperses. The gathering appears random and unplanned. It often includes some bizarre activity.

FLESH MOB, then, is a flash mob made up of fat people.

Fat bodies make an impact, in many senses of the word. Fat people turn heads. We inspire awe and curiousity and fear. Imagine what we'd look like in vast numbers!

FLESH MOB gives us an opportunity to do something fun, creative, spontaneous, and powerful. Let's experience the power of fat visibility! Let's give ourselves something to laugh about! Let's see what kind of impact we have in numbers!

For information about the history of flash mobs, here's the wikipedia entry:


There are two ways to be part of the Flesh Mob.

1. Text message sent to your cell phone. Send your cell phone number to the Flesh Mob organizer (fattest at livejournal dot com) along with a note saying you want to be part of the Flesh Mob. You will receive one phone call confirming your desire to participate.

2. Join the email list just for announcements of bay area Flesh Mobs.


Because FLESH MOBS will occur on short notice, the cell phone text message method is recommended.

See you at the next FLESH MOB!

Please pass this information along to other fat people in the SF bay area.
