Bosh Film Festival on Chris Bosh's Injury, a Heat Win, and New Discosoma Records Song for James Jones
If you take a peek at the festival's website, you'll notice a wild world of Chris Bosh imaginations. The site was conceived and created by Bleeding Palm's Ronnie Rivera the Executive Necromage (whatever that means) and curator of the festival. We wanted to know more about the song, the festival, and their official take on Bosh's injury, so we connected with Chris Quinn, Minister of Jurassic Arts (a position created by Steven Spielberg?) to discuss.
Is the Bosh Film Festival real? Yes, apparently it's set to happen sometime this fall. If you take a peek at their website, you may notice a few funny facts. As far as how accurate the site is, Quinn says, "All of the facts on the site are absolutely true -- somewhere in the multiverse."
In the multiverse: The Bosh Film Festival was founded last year when Chris Bosh donated 1% of his salary ($160,225) to the Borscht Film Festival. Since we have a really stupid name to begin with (Borscht), we didn't mind changing our festival (name) to the Bosh Film Festival. This was just the latest high-profile donation from a South Florida athlete to an arts organization.
In our universe: Our tweets (to Chris Bosh) went unanswered, and the Miami Herald got very upset when they almost ran the story (of the Bosh Film Festival). Now, we are attempting to bring the festival into this universe. It will run in competition with the Borscht Film Festival later this year, and will be curated by Bleeding Palm. All life is real life.
Of the recent abdominal strain that may keep Bosh from hitting the court for the remainder of the season, Quinn remarks, "Free your mind, Liz Tracy. Bosh's injury is an absolute fiction. As the keeper of the Great Sword of Gorg-Dak-Tox Bosh occasionally has duties to the Star Prince PXXA. He was called away on duty and will return to the court once he has vanquished his foes. Bosh's sinews know nothing of mammalian weakness." Wait. What?
sleepwalking is a sound project by ANR's MJ Hancock and Jared McKay of Coral Morphologic. Bosh Film Festival called upon this duo to do something of great importance. "They are making a soundtrack for the mythical lives of the Miami Heat roster -- except for Shane Battier." Quinn then rambled on about Battier being a warlock.
The real question we want answered though by this Quinn, who clearly has such a strong Bosh connection: Can the Heat win without Bosh? "It depends on the game. If we are talking about the primitive arithmetic of 'basketball' then yes. If we are talking about the real game being played before our very eyes that we can never understand, then no." Hopefully, Quinn is wrong.
