Three Years at The Monster House

Jimi “James” Payne posted this over on Banalization.

James “Jimi” Payne

For the past three years I have lived in the Monster House, a DIY punk house in Columbus, Ohio. I co-founded the Monster House with Pat Crann, Austin Eilbeck, Ryan Eilbeck, Jeff Love, Kristina Markey, Matt O’Conke, Joe Scarbro, Dylan Taylor-Lehman, and Nick Wong. A few weeks ago the last three original roommates – besides me – left. And, as of this week, I’m moving out as well. A group of our friends still living at the Monster plan to continue hosting shows and events. On October 8th, Apache DropoutLandlordReverse The Curse, and Cody Troyan are performing there.

After “the jump” is a list of every performer who occasioned the “stage” at the Monster House in the last three years. 400 different performers have played over 150 shows booked by over 20 promoters. The list is representative of the Columbus punk scene as well as the national DIY touring circuit from 2007-10.

More than 30 people paid rent at the house during this time span.

The Delusion Of Eating Art Show Opens October 7th

Here is some info for a pretty interesting exhibit I am involved with over at the Shelf. If you remember Joy Divisions, its like that but different:

The Delusion of Eating
Shelf Gallery | 57 E. Gay Street, Columbus Ohio
October 7 through November 27, 2010
Opening Reception: Thursday, October 7 | 6 to 9pm
Lecture with the Curators: Thursday November 11 | 7 to 8pm
Delusion of Eating Performances: Friday, November 26 | 9 to 11pm

The Delusion of Eating exhibit presents a national array of artworks that eloquently use the marketed spectacle of eating as the material to explore how capitalism creates an isolating desire.

Works include video, painting, photography, sculpture, performance, and text; all creating a discourse about our lives in the contemporary situation where ideologies about eating are shifting away from science-lab food products and into marketed desires for ‘natural’ ‘slow’ food stuffs, while for the majority of Americans these ‘local’ foods are out of the question due to geography and class.

The exhibition is organized by Vince Chocolate (Eva Ball and Ian Ruffino) and will be accompanied by a text written by the curators and three Ohio writers: Wes Flexner, Matt Morris, and James Payne. The national and international array of artists, all connected to Columbus, are: Sarah Bernat, Harry Crofton, Grant LaValley, John Malta, Nicolas Murer, Dan Olsen, Luke Powers, Janice Schindeler, and Dina Sherman.
