The United States vs. Private Chelsea Manning: A Graphic Account From Inside The Courtroom – Book Salon Preview

Good morning everyone.

When dakine01 saw the listings last night, he replied:

“Day-uhm! The competition is fierce what with The Clinton Guy Shocked by Blowjobs having a wake for Eric Cantor, Senator Huckleberry J Butchmeup doing a two-faced dance with CBS and CNN, Faux Noise being its norm but Disco Dave’s Dance Party must really be trying to make up for having reasonable shows the past few weeks with that lineup of halfwits and full twits.”

Can’t argue with that. But do join Kevin Kosztola with Clark Stoeckley this afternoon for Book Salon to talk about Stoeckley’s visual reporting from the Chelsea Manning trial. His distinct courtroom drawings helped bring the trial outside the courtroom. And Monday evening Lisa Derrick brings Dave Tourjé in to talk about his art and the film L.A. Aboriginal.

Good Morning everybody, I hope it’s bright and sunny where you are, but if it is raining, think how happy your tomatoes are.

There’s no Book Salon this week, but Monday’s movie night is an Oscar quality crime drama, In the Shadow. Joan McCarter and Dave Johnson will be Virtually Speaking this evening, looks like an interesting show.

Late Night: The Tell Tale Heart

By: Saturday June 7, 2014 8:00 pm

Dakinen01 posted his Edgar Allan Poe diary today which reminded me the first Poe story I read was The Tell Tale Heart – haunts me still. Poking around online, I found this short and thought you’d enjoy watching it — right before bed. /wicked laugh
