There are several reasons why Walski will most probably attend. First and foremost, to get a little respite from life, it's associated drudgery and malcontent. Everybody needs a good night out once in a while.

Second (and more important), there will be a lot of talent featured. The e-mail invite that Walski got stated that there will be Short Films, Music Videos, Experimental Films, Documentaries, and Animation, from a dirty dozen of talent (for the benefit of the uninitiated, Walski's provided links to some of the name references used, via Wikipedia):

► CHI TOO - Free jazz, with a local flavor!

► HELEN MERETE - She'll eat Lydia Lunch for lunch! In stop motion!

► JOHAN JOHN - If Lou Reed made Malaysian flicks ...

► JORDAN SULEIMAN and STUDIO VOXEL - Mick and the Stones if they were 21st-century Dada artists.

► KHAIRIL M. BAHAR aka Mr. CIPLAK - "DIY or Die!" The love child of Joe Strummer and James Brown.

► KHOO ENG YOW - A one-man Philip Glass chamber orchestra.

► LYDIA LUBON and YAZID AHMAD - The White Stripes reincarnated as a Dynamic Doco-Duo!

► MIEN LOR - Silence spoken through the resonant volume of a Patti Smith song.

► MOHD NIZAM BIN ABDUL RAZAK and LES' COPAQUE PRODUCTIONS - All the entertainment value of the Beastie Boys, rendered in 3-D!

► MUHAMMAD ANAS - If Trent Reznor was a Pixar animator ...

► TONY PIETRA - Just a schmuck. He wants to be Vegas Elvis (in his own words, not Walski's)

In addition, some familiar faces will be featured on-screen, like Ben's Bitches, Soft Touch and Pete Teo. Sounds like an evening of artful adventure, and sonic fun. So, if you don't wanna miss it, who you gonna mail/text?

You know the drill...
