Gigloo Video Mix Tape Premiere
These days every op shop has a large section of VHS films. It makes it easy to discover what people’s favourite films were: every store has a copy of Dirty Dancing and Titanic, for example. There are also plenty of VHS players to watch them with, piled up in the electricals section. The staff look grateful if you buy one.
We have 4 VHS players at the moment, two of which are connected to the TV and a DVD player via a cats cradle of different cords. Simon has been using them to make a movie mixtape, the premiere of which will be this Saturday at the Tiny Stadiums Festival in the Gigloo: look for the large inflatable igloo on Erskineville Rd.
The mix tape is of 150 different scenes from movies: forgotten, odd, curious, funny, important, trivial. From Howard’s End to Snakes on a Plane and anything and everything you could imagine in between. There’s an accompanying zine, and accompanying popcorn. It’s winter! Come into the igloo and watch movies with us. We’ll be in there from 11am – 3pm.
