Hello friends, and welcome to the all-new* Shadowselves newsletter. I put you on this list because I thought you might be interested in hearing updates about the activities of Shadowselves and its founding members, Mike and Linda Aubry Bullock. But if you want off this list, no problem, you can unsubscribe any time. I will keep this mailing list down to a maximum of 2 times a month, quite possibly less than that.

*International Pancake Film Festival*
Orangecookie Image & Sound, Linda’s stop-motion animation project, is planning to premier a new short at the International Pancake Film Festival. This year’s theme is Haunted House of Pancakes, and if you know Linda at all, you know this is right up her alley. http://internationalpancakefilmfest.tumblr.com
*BSC Cage Song Books*
In December, 8-piece improvising ensemble The BSC will be performing John Cage’s Song Books at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, as part a celebration of Cage’s centenary presented by Bowerbird. http://www.bowerbird.org/newsite/
