We have a new section entitled allso. This will hopefully be added to regularly and will consist of interviews with people we find interesting and/or inspiring. The first is an interview with Stan Brakhage from late 2000 (a second interview from early 2001 will be posted shortly). Brakhage was a remarkable person and has influenced untold filmmakers over the years. We also have an interview with Stephen O'Malley (Sunn 0))), Khanate, Ginnungagap) which is being typed up and should be online shortly.

10th of June 2005

So we are finally on our way again thanks to some masterful web work by Patrick.

The Women and Children box is near. Having predicted two weeks to completion at ATP (22 may) I think that it would be wise to be conservative and say that we are aiming for around July 1st. Everything is done bar the DVD?s which are once again proving to be the delaying factor. The order form is now up so anyone wanting to pre-order can do so and expect delivery around that time.

Thanks for your patience,
love,
hallso.
