I'm posting here
because there is a Great Dane that really needs your help this weekend.
Anna's owner was being supported financially entirely by her husband, until he
died suddenly and unexpectedly. It was then that she turned to rescue as
she realized she could not even afford to feed herself let alone the animals
that had come to live with her. A wonderful rescue in South Carolina has
agreed to take Anna in, but we have to get her there. She is already
underweight and being fed half rations - we want to get her to a place where she
can be fed regularly as soon as possible. On her way to rescue she will be
traveling through Shreveport and Monroe, LA!
More details here:
(Please feel free to comment here or there with any questions you may have)
(Please cross post)
take a look at the link above and see if you can help. All it takes is a
couple hours out of your day and some gas to drive from one city to the next.

FYI: Here's info for an arty, underground film event on Saturday:
minicine? (@ ArtSpace) hosts:
TIE - Fifth Anniversary Tour
The International Experimental Cinema Exposition
8PM Saturday AUGUST 20 Admission $5
ArtSpace 710 Texas Street
This program consists of a grouping of hand-made and personal esoteric film experiments from a selection of contemporary film artists from around the world, including, USA, Germany, India and Canada... Representing a range of alternative filmmaking processes including, cameraless, photogram, pin-hole, direct attack, ocean-tossed and more... All these works are on FILM...
"For over 100 years, film has been the standard that other mediums have striven to achieve. Unlike it's electronic contemporaries, the finer nuances of the format have remained unchanged. Film speaks a language all its own, and when combined with an artist's vision, images are given a life that only film can provide. In a world dominated by new moving image technologies, when we see film, we know we are taking a special voyage." -TIE
TIE Founder/Curator Christopher May (Denver, CO) will be present to screen and discuss this program...

Last minute something to do...
Hey peeps! Sorry for the short notice but I wanted to let everyone know about a seemingly neat-o event happening this evening in downtown Shreveport. This is a minicine? (Shreveport experimental/underground music/film/etc. organization) show and it's a couple of bands passing through on their way to a music festival in Athens, GA:
Red Pony Clock (CA) and FishBoy (TX)
Taking place in the alley behind 824 Texas Street.
$5 donation gets you hot dogs and beer.
Hot dogs on the grill at 8pm. I'd imagine the bands will start around 8:30 or 9:00.
As far as I know, this is an all-ages event.
So come on out and give these guys a listen. As is always the case with minicine? shows, you can be sure you won't hear anything like this anywhere in Shreveport.
Check the bands out at http://www.yofishboy.com

Just a question
Do you think if we got enough support we could hold like a massive 'bbq' or picnic for this community somewhere. Like a reasonable date and have enough planning time, i vote sometime in August. I think a bbq would be pretty nice, but that costs alot of money. So, a picnic, bring your own food and meet alot of people in the community. Good idea? or Just Randomness?

Hey everybody! Just thought I'd pass along the good word that Artspace (710 Texas Street, downtown Shreveport) has some really cool all-ages going on now and in the near future:
-Mixed Media Exhibition of works from area artists
From now through July 16th, free admission
-Open Mic Poetry Night
7-9pm Thursday, July 7th, free admission
-Junior III concert
7-11pm, Saturday July 9, $5 admission
(Personal note: This is undoubtedly one of my favorite local bands. Sort of bluesy, folky, jazzy, indie...simple, talented, AWESOME. And they don't play all that often, so you don't want to miss this chance to see them!)

Growing up in the Shreveport area has taught me to explore shops, places, and events. Over time, I have managed to keep myself entertained. Below is a list of some of my favorite Shreveport activities.Top 5 Favorite Shreveport Activities:
1. Arts of Fire (located on Youree Drive)You can go here and paint your own pottery/ dishes/ light switch covers. I've found it's a great way to spend an afternoon and you can create a really great gift for mom (or someone else who might enjoy your artwork). The only downside is that it is a little expensive.
2. Sports Spectrum 5Ks. If you like to run or walk, these are a lot of fun. About once a month, Sport Spectrum sponsers 3.1 mile runs/walks. These events are a lot of fun, and a lot of people generally show up. The race courses are at different lcoations all over Shreveport. You walk away with a t-shirt, and the money goes to charitable programs like the Feist-Weiler cancer center. The Turkey Trot in November is one of my favorites because you run through the woods along the Red River.
3. Picnic On those rare nice temperature days somewhere around March and November, it's fun to make a picnic (or if you're lazy like me, go to Sonic) and take your food to a picnic table at the Frisbie Park on Clyde Fant or Ford Park out on Cross Lake. If you go to the Frisbie Park, you can usually watch some games going on, and if you're at Ford Park at the right time, you can watch Centenary's rowing team.
4. PlaysShreveport has a plays going on all the time. If you can't afford tickets at the Strand, think about going to see a show at East Bank Theatre, or Centenary's Marjorie Lyons playhouse. I am continually suprised at how good the shows are.
5. Used Book StoresIf you like to read, there are some great used book stores around town. My favorite is the one by Baskin Robbins on Kings Hwy. The books are cheap, and the selection is great (though they do tend to carry a lot of Romance novels).( and a couple of Shreveport picsCollapse ) Current Mood: okay
