Ani Kyd and Jello Biafra in the Georgia Straight

 The first of the articles planned on Jello Biafra's birthday bash, Monday, June 17th at the Rickshaw, focusing on Ani Kyd's short film, I Love You... I am the Porn Queen, to screen that night. (The event will also feature a trip to Nardwuar's video vault, a Jello Biafra spoken word performance, and music with Thee Goblins and Ani's band Fuel Injected .45 - with the idea being that Jello will join both bands onstage for encores, likely of Dead Kennedys' favourites. You wouldn't know from the Straight interview, but Ani was actually self-deprecating about the film in conversation, emphasizing that "We had a lot of things that we wanted to do that we couldn’t, on zero budget… I was happy just getting it done, as my first film" - but I left all of that out; it's a pretty entertaining little film, after all (though it does feel more like a tasty appetizer for a longer feature than a full meal). See Ani, Jello, and makeup man/ producer Toby Lindala being interviewed by Nardwuar on the set of the film here.
