Kimmy Von Hagen Memorial

The beautiful angel Kimmy von HagenI’ve some sad news to share. Our multifaceted community recently lost one of our own. A very good one, at that. Many of you knew the lovely Kimmy Von Hagen. While in Nice, France, working the Cannes Film Festival, Kimmy met with misfortune and passed from this plane of existence. Her soul-mate, a dear friend and a mover and shaker in our stellar community DJ Tommy Hyjynx could use your love and support. If you’re the praying type, send one up for Kimmy. If not, spare a kind thought. Better yet, come to the memorial celebration. Kimmy deserves no less that a full celebration of the life she lived and the joy and kindness that she spread to everyone she met. If you were lucky enough to have ever met her, you know this to be true. The world needs more angles like Kimmy von Hagen. Let her life be an inspiration to you to be just such an angel.

Hyjynx has organized a memorial celebration for Kimmy to take place on Sunday June 22. Please come by to lend your love and support. Your kind selflessness will be greatly appreciated. Details below.

A Thank You from Forever for LiB

It’s been two weeks since LIB and we can still hardly believe what we got to see and experience and learn under those oak trees. We keep hearing the echoes of beats. We keep seeing flashes of so many radiant smiling faces. We keep feeling the ground shake with the magnificent force of daring minds and dancing feet. We are forever grateful.

It is YOU who helped to make LIB08 a truly life-changing experience, and for this we offer our gratitude not just with words, but with images! Check out the faces on the LIB08 Thank You page, and add your own. ~ Pass it on…

Venice Beach Carnevale 2008

Venice Beach Carnivale 2008

Venice Beach Carnevale
Saturday, June 7, 2008

The 6th Carnevale! Venice Beach will be held on Saturday, June 7th at Beyond Baroque, 681 Venice Boulevard from noon until 9 PM. Admission is free and costumes are encouraged in the tradition of the famed Carnevale in Venice, Italy which is the inspiration of this colorful neighborhood festival.

6th Annual Carevale Venice Beach!

The Venice Carnevale, produced by the Venice Artists Forum in Association with the Venice Chamber of Commerce and sponsored in party by the City of Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs, will feature an all-day lineup of live entertainment from the local area and will conclude with its traditional fiery finale.

We are very excited to be moving our festival to the Beyond Baroque Literary Arts Center, located in the old City Hall, right next to the fire station on Venice Boulevard just east of Abbot Kinney, and there could not be a more appropriate historical location. It will be an added treat that the old jail next door which houses SPARC (Social & Public Art Resource Center) also be open for the festival that day.

Esquire Jauchem
Event Producer

“We have some of our usual, fantastic performers” said Miriam More, Co-Producer, “and some fabulous new talent.Featured groups will include the Venice Drum Circle, Street Smarts, Kathy Leonardo, Wadada, Hillel “Mr. Balloonman”, and a variety of other performances ranging from Baraka bellydancing to Italian opera, ending with a pyrotechic bang furnished by DMT and the Phoenix Projeckt fire dancers!“.


Brady Walker, the other Co-Producer, who has been handling relations with the City, had high praise for Councilman Bill Rosendahl’s office, “His staff has been extremely helpful in working out the details for use of this city facility. We could not have staged the Carnevale without their help.”

The festival will include a variety of performances on the Main Stage, Arts and Crafts vendors, food service, and the Masquerade Bar and Lounge with DJ Fatfinger from Project Alma and guest DJ’s all day. Parking is available in public lots east of the event behind the Pacific Resident Theater.

“Scrapper” – An Explosive New Documentary

Intense New Documentary – Scrapper

by L.A. Filmmaker Stephan Wassmann

A Mini-history of Twan and Stephan Wassmann

Stephan Wassmann is a good friend of mine. He and I met when we were both working on our very first feature film together when we were in our early 20’s. It was an ultra-low budget piece of crap called “Warlords From Hell”, produced by B-movie mogul Roger Corman, co-starring Robert Patrick in his first movie role (best known as the evil liquid robot man in Director James Cameron’s Terminator 2). Stephan and I have remained friends over the years and have kept tabs on each other’s endeavors. Stephan was one of the director/cameramen for a project that is still on the shelf, waiting for ME (Twan) to get off my ass and make happen: the 1999 Burning Man Voodoo Opera – Le Mystere de Papa Loko. Absolutely amazing footage.

Get a glimpse of our explosive new documentary “SCRAPPER”, which takes you inside a uniquely American outlaw realm… right where you least expect it.

There’s a 3 minute and a 1 minute trailer. We’d love it if you posted a comment if you don’t mind taking the time. We’re trying to generate as much buzz as we can, so feel free to forward the link to friends.

Please check it out

Help Playa Surfers Camp Get to Burning Man

Tiki Freaky – Burning Man Camp Fundraiser

Playa Surfers were on the Esplanade near 5:30 last year. In addition to a fun lounge and wicked tuneage, we provided wheeled surfboards (bike-towed versions and self-powered ones) for the masses in BRC to surf the playa with. Totally fun if we say so ourselves! This year we’re expanding our lounge, adding a lifeguard tower, and putting mo’ and betta’ powered surfboards on the playa for all to enjoy!

Please help us in pursuit of bringing our brand of happiness to you by participating in our fundraising party. Our last party was truly off the hook, so we’re at it again!

Laserium Schedule for June 2008

Laserium: Led Zeppelin - Pink Floyd

LASERIUM SHOWS FOR JUNE

This month, June 2008, Laserium shows will be performed on Saturdays June 7th and 21st.

3D Beatles, Dark Side of the Moon, and Led Zeppelin Laserium Shows

On both days, The Beatles Laserium Show will again be presented in spectacular Lazer 3D–with free Lazer Glasses and special Laserium Beatles posters to go–at 6:00, followed by Dark Side of the Moon at 8:00 and Led Zeppelin at 10:00. And those joining us on the 21st will help us celebrate the Summer Solstice and be first to hear of our exciting plans for the summer and beyond.


Admission is $15 payable online at www.laserium.com, with a dollar discount for groups of 5 or more. Reservations cannot be confirmed without advance payment. Because seating is limited, patrons are advised to reserve early.

The Cyberstudio is located at:

  • 6911 Hayvenhurst Ave.
  • Van Nuys
  • marked by the lighted Laserium sign

Patrons will have fun enjoying the unique, “freespace-interactive” LightDancer, which puts their full body in flawless control of lasers, video and musical accompaniment. And the experience now features an exciting new set of music and multimedia effects.

Our Cyberstudio may be intimate in scale, but the effects are pretty overwhelming, and what people can see and do is unlike anything available anywhere???even previously at the Griffith Observatory!

Ivan Dryer
Creator of Laserium

Multi Color Laser Effects

Also enhancing the Laserium shows will be stunning multi-color laser effects filling the air overhead. Each show experience lasts about 1 1/2 hours and will begin in an adjacent studio with the interactive technologies to be incorporated in the forthcoming Laserium CyberSpace.
