G-GAP IV (Gloucester Guerilla Art Project)This Monday Night!

MONDAY, APRIL 26 @ 7:30PM Cape Ann Community Cinema

Join us for the fourth “G-GAP” (Gloucester Guerilla Art Project) as we present on our screen the work of the following wicked talented folks:

DAVID COX – back shore surf pictures set to Willie “Loco” Alexander’s song “Bass Rocks”

JAY ALBERT – A “St. Peter & Mother Nature” photo show, featuring the song “The Sunset” by Stephan Carroll, written especially for G-GAP

STEVE BORICHEVSKY – A breathtaking “Gloucester: Land, Sea & Air” photo show

EMILE DOUCETTE – Three short films: “Hold” (a 2009 48-Hour Film competition entry featuring the voice of comedian Jonathan Katz); “Pallino” (a 2010 24-Hour Film competition entry); “Homemade Parade” (about the Lanesville 4th Of July Parade and made for the 5-Day Doc Challenge in which “The Greasy Pole” also competed)

Cover’s just $7.00, and we give money from every ticket sold to the effort to repair Gloucester High School’s Newell Stadium. It’s a fun, all-local night out, and we hope you’ll join us and be a part of it!

Wall Street Autumn

For those of you who didn’t get to the Gloucester Guerrilla Art Project II last week, this is my photo video of “Wall Street Autumn”. My friend Peter Fedele is playing amazing guitar on the musical piece from his CD Hullabaloo. He lives in Rockport with his wife and 3 children. I love listening to him play.

Thanks, Joey, for helping me figure out how to get this posted! You are the best!

Packed House For GGAP II

We had a lot of fun and raised money for a great cause.   People turned out and I’m proud to say that GGAP II was the first sell-out at Cape Ann Community Cinema.  We raised $2217. which will be deposited by the end of the week to The MR Children fund.  There are still 12 t shirts left which can be purchased at The Dress Code downtown and 100% of that money will be added into the total when they are sold.  Also Rob Newton will be donating a portion of the proceeds from a show this week (details to follow) into the pot.

Thanks to Sharon for taking the pictures at the show as I was too busy to be able to get any footage.

Gloucester’s Poet Laureate John Ronan To Recite

Yesterday I got a call from Sharon asking me if I thought it would be okay to ask Gloucester’s Poet Laureate John Ronan to recite the poem he wrote in tribute of Matteo Russo and John Orlando at the Gloucester Guerilla Art event today at Cape Ann Community Cinema.

I told her sure if she could get ahold of him and he wanted to do it.  Sharon tells me that in fact he will come and is honored to be a part of it.

We will be showing up early around 12:30 if anyone wants to swing by and hang out before the show (my favorite part).

From Steve-

“Hi Joey,

As promised, here is a shot of me representing.  I was in Monterey, California shooting the local wildlife.  Here I am with a Brown Pelican that was hanging out at a fish cleaning station on Fisherman’s Wharf.  In the background is a trawler, just a reminder of how important Monterey was as a fishing port.  I was asking what the local fish was at a restraint.  The “local” fish was Alaskan halibut. “

Great Time and Thank Yous

Last Night’s First Ever Gloucester Guerilla Art Project was a fantastic event.  There were many faces of the Gloucester Blogging community represented along with friends of GMG and other nortable folks.

I’d like to thank Robert Newton who provided the venue Cape Ann Community Cinema (and I think I forgot to thank publicly last night).  I’d also like to thank all the presenters- Jay Albert from Cape Ann Images, Mark Teiwes who shoots for the Beacon and hosts some of his work at www.MarkTeiwes.com, Chad Carlberg and Emile Doucette along with the rest of the team from www.baitandtackle.biz . Also thanks go out to Kat Valentine from Valentine Design who put Jay Albert’s slide show together and also was of great technical assistance.  If you haven’t already checked out their sites I highly suggest you do.

I’m looking forward to collaborating with these guys in the future to bring even more fun community media presentations to you fine folks.

It was nice to see fellow bloggers Jon Conant, John Hintlian, Miz Lia and Steve B.  Thanks for the support guys.  Also thanks go out to one of my best buddies “The Rabbit”  who took over GMG photo duties so I could meet folks without the encumbrances of the camera(pics coming later) or you could check out Miz Lia’s Blog for a few to hold you over til the Rabbit gets his ass out of bed today.

Thanks also go to Enrico Pallazzo and his lovely wife Kim for showing the love last night along with Damon and Ann Malloy of Neptune’s Harvest Fame (who I got to meet officially last night), Big Daddy Phil Doucette, Kenny and Paula Ryan, Dad’s cousin Gail Guittar, Jay’s family, Sharon Lowe, the fans of GMG, and the other people that I’m suddenly forgetting but showed up including the lovely lady that told me earlier in the week down the dock that she was going to show up and she did with her friend but her name escapes me.

Thanks to anyone else that came but I’m forgetting or didn’t get to meet.

Thanks, Thanks, Thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I promise we will continue to do these and add more contibutors in the future.  I’d like to have John Hintlian, Sharon Lowe and Steve B participate in the next one (start putting your stuff together).

Ahhhhhhhh, feels good!
