Dual Website Launch Party Extravagantacular


Featuring: Words, Images, Links, Hyperlinks, Hot Hot Hotlinks
And: Music by Cookie Jar aka The Mongoloid Messiah

Friday, December 7

Seth John and Sean Deyoe became friends in high school, where they shared an interest in activities such as “Philosophy Seminar,” “Writing Workshop,” and “Lunch.” After graduation, they each went their separate ways, as people do. Time passed, as it does. Now they are both in Los Angeles and are both launching websites. And this is a party to celebrate that fact. Each will give a short presentation of his work; in between will be a screening of Injected with a Poison, the fung fu movie made in high school by Deyoe, starring John; afterward a live performance by pop sensation Cookie Jar. Refreshments served throughout.
