Nerd This Doesn’t Fit into Our Calendar Anywhere…

… but I feel like everyone should know about it.
Via the Northwest Film Forum mail list:
We are pleased to announce that the 6th annual Cephalopod Appreciation Society meeting will be held on the afternoon of Sunday, August 10th at our favorite location—the Northwest Film Forum (1515 12th Ave - off Pine St. on Capitol Hill - Seattle, WA).
We’ll kick everything off at 12:30 pm with some cephalopod-inspired music, art, poetry, impassioned speeches & Other, and end with a cephalopod film (TBA).
Sunday, Aug. 10th
12:30 - 2:30 pm

Here’s what you can do:
* First - save the date & come celebrate!
* Second - spread the word to your friends and favorite cephalopods. (Reminder: Cephalopods include the octopus, squid, chambered nautilus, and cuttlefish. All molluscs are welcome, but we’ll only be celebrating cephalopods on this day.)
* Last but not least — if you have (or will have) a CEPHALOPOD-INSPIRED SOMETHING to present or perform at the meeting, please let me know so I can schedule you in! We’re open to all media (music, dance, lecture, fashion, multi-media, art, poetry, puppets, interactive, super-8, slide-show, Other), and although it’s a fairly lo-fi affair we’ll do our best to accommodate your technological needs.
And if you know of someone who might be interested, please pass this on.
Hope to see you there!
This seems like the right time to mention that if plain old Moleskine notebooks have become too dull for you, you can purchase all kinds of etched modifications from Modofly. Those by Dan Hillier tend to involve human-cephalopod hybrids:
