Proof? Here’s your proof.
Head on over here between 2 and 4pm EST today, Friday February 27.
UPDATE: Reddit is not allowing me to post. On my own IAMA. Granted, this IAMA was set up by someone else, who said he had duly submitted my handle (Nina_Paley, created a week ago) to the mods. But it didn’t work. I was on the calendar, but I can’t respond to questions. I am not happy about this but mods aren’t responding, so I give up. You can AMA on Twitter instead.
UPDATE 2: after half an hour the problem was corrected, and I went back and answered questions.
That’s me! Getting some local press for my art quilt show, which opens Saturday at Sleepy Creek Vineyards! Details and directions here.

Screening of Sita Sings the Blues: 8pm
Sleepy Creek Vineyards is three miles south of Oakwood, Illinois, just off Interstate 74 between Danville and Champaign, IL.

Want to see the place? Sleepy Creek has a funny webseries you can watch right now! My favorite is episode 6, it cracks me up.
I really want to visit your country in early to mid October. A festival in Sweden has invited me to speak around October 14-16, and would like to make a stopover before or after or both. I am greatly intrigued by Iceland’s Modern Media Initiative*. Might there be some way I could speak at a university there, or at least meet Icelanders involved with media reform and free speech issues?
*P.S. OK, not just the Modern Media Initiative. I’m also intrigued by your giant thermal pools.
To help me make a Mimi & Eunice Intellectual Pooperty mini-book go here.
Update: The $3,000 fundraising goal has been met! Any additional funds over the goal means more minibooks printed, which means lower per-book costs. POOPERTY FOR THE PEOPLE!
I’ll be speaking at Boston University tomorrow (Monday April 4) evening at 6pm. Details here.

SITA SINGS THE BLUES
Screening of the film and a conversation with filmmaker Nina Paley.
Boston University’s Program for Scripture and the Arts and the National Endowment for the Humanities, Distinguished Teaching Professorship welcome filmaker Nina Paley to Boston University. On April 4 we will present a showing of the groundbreaking animated film Sita Sings the Blues, followed by a conversation with the filmmaker.
Sita Sings the Blues was written, directed, produced and animated by American artist Paley, and weaves an autobiographical story with events from the Hindu scriptural text the Ramayana. The feature length film uses music, shadow puppets and novel animation techniques to re-imagine the artist’s experience through the lens of the god Rama’s wife, Sita.
Location: SMG Auditorium
Time/Date: April 4, 2011, 6pm
