I want my MNTV: Every year the Walker, IFP/MN, and Intermedia Arts curates a selection of Minnesota-made movies to air on Twin Cities Public Television. Only one MNTV broadcast remains–Saturday night at 10 on TPT17–but most of the films are viewable online. Watch here.
RIP Malachi Ritscher: While little known outside Chicago’s free-music scene, Malachi Ritscher was a local legend for his tireless documentation of shows by free jazz and improvised music artists; he’s recorded more than 2,000 shows and some of his projects have been officially released by the artists he tracked. On Friday, Ritscher apparently immolated himself on the Kennedy Expressway. A familiar presence at antiwar rallies, Ritscher left a suicide note on his website expressing his sadness and outrage at the war in Iraq. (Thanks, Jesse.)
Brooklyn Flickr: Modern Art Notes points out the Brooklyn Museum of Art’s Flickr site; like ours, it has a lot of party pictures, but there are also some amazing shots of Ron Mueck installing his just-opened show.
