4:50 PM Edit This 0 Comments »
This "part b" episode wraps up our Hot Pot adventures and features a really awesome interview with Amy Sigil! She talks about the buildup to their most recent - and already legendary! - Blood Moon event, how she chose her name, and her new coffee table book: Sigil, Ink. Mary and Tammy have a few random comments and another music spotlight, but it's mainly all about Amy! :-) YIP!

Description of Amy's 2013 intensive:
Amy Sigil Presents KINESPHERE: An exploration in limitless space
Exclusively for the epic year of 2013, a dance experience unlike any Sigil has offered before. We're bringing it all to the table baby, because life is short and Art is unmeasured. This one is the Deluxe Package, my friends, including: technique, theory, choreography, Improvisational Tribal Style, games and explorative movement. A moment in the creative mind of Amy Sigil. Available in 2013 and only in select locations.

And because I forgot to put them up for episode a: on the left is my tattoo (Mary) and on the right is Tammy's fabulous tattoo! Awesome! Both of these images are taken from the book Sigil, Ink; originally both pictures were taken by Rodin E. Thanks Rodin! :-) (Tammy's brother took the one that ended up in the book. Thanks Anthony!)
