Iowa: Land of Meat, Liquor and Vlog

Super giant thanks to dynamic vlog-duo Jennifer Proctor and Aaron Valdez of Iowa City Microcinema for hosting a sweet vlog weekend in America's heartland. My co-conspiratoree was played by none other than Chris Weagel, he of Human Dog.

I arrived just in time to screen Blogumentary and have a couple pitchers of Shiner afterward. I met some cool philosophy grad students who drank lots of delicious single malt Irish whiskey, which they followed up with Eraserhead and Nintendo. Those are my kinda people. Weagel acquired some excellent meat-and-doll-themed antique postcards for The Pan. I followed suit with some creepy postcards for the Koven.

Also, apparently one of the kitties be-gifted us with a dead chipmunk. I slept near it on the couch, unaware yet feeling protected and loved.

CHUCK'S NEXT STOPS:
University of North Carolina - Wilmington
Chicago (King Tut, Robert Pollard show, etc.)
San Francisco (The Vloggies!)

WATCHY WATCH:
Vlogging AllStars - Jennifer's vlog class in action
This Week in Mind Control - supplementary evidence of Valdezatronic genius
YONO, pt.3 - Jon Yono is many things. American is not one of them.

Chuck Olsen is the best! Thanks for the plug. By the way, the cats also brought you a live bird, but they were a day too late. I'll have to overnight it to you.
