You've maybe heard of it, maybe thought you've seen it, but mostly you have misunderstood one of the greatest marvels of the 21st century. What exactly is ChkNfsh? Where does it come from? Can one really eat it?....

In a time where nothing is familiar, and everything we know has been turned inside out, Chknfsh emerges from the depths of pop culture, churning up melodic beats, overlaid with audio/video-sampled obscurities from the golden ages of visual electronic information. It is an experiment to say the least. Former members of Catfive challenge the audience to remember what it is we are to do in the future, by studying sights and sounds of the past in a new context, presented in stunning 2-d color video and sterophonic sound through the Catavision 5000 Samplereflector. Dust off your transistor radio and grab a fresh set of batteries, Chknfsh will also be broadcasting their pirate Micro-transmissions Live on 88.1 FM from their booth on the street this year.

SHARE San Jose
SHARE is a global organization dedicated to supporting collaboration and knowledge exchange in new media communities. Local SHARE groups hold free, open jams and workshops in their communities. Participants bring their portable equipment, plug into a common system, improvise on each others' signal and perform live audio and video. SHARE furnishes the amplification and projection. SHARE happens weekly to monthly in cities around the world, where interesting things happen.

For SubZERO Festival SHARE will provide interactive visuals and music by local members. Both the interactive graphics and those created live utilize custom software and controllers. Other visuals will be generated using live camera input giving festival-goers the opportunity to play and interact with the projected displays. In addition to the imagery there will be several musical instruments and unique controllers that attendees can use to help make music. (Video: a SHARE jam, about 10 of us all plugged into a common system for a 2-hour jam with fellow audio and video freaks.)

Shorty Fatz bikes

Shorty Fatz Bikes
Shorty Fatz is a bicycle design center, and manufacturing company created by Matthew Rodriguez and Samuel Rodriguez. We first teamed up as a duo, combining metal fabrication technique, graffiti art, and traditional design aesthetics to create unprecedented exhibitions of custom bicycles.

We make two types of bicycles, the first being the "Ping Series" that is our cruiser style bike. The second is also our newest endeavor, titled the "Eight Series". This bicycle is a single speed that we designed as a transportation solution during these crazy economic times, and turbulent gas prices. We made it to perform for everyday usage such as commuting, etc.

Shorty Fatz fabricates all our frames in San Jose, Ca. Hubs and bottom brackets for the 8 Series are supplied and fabricated by Phil Wood & Co., also located in San Jose. Our creative approach is in line with our artistic and cultural roots, except now we've added in mathematics and precision. We are fortunate to have the ability and technical support to make all our frames right here in the U.S.A. and employ talented locals.

We feel that it's important to build community, and stimulate local cultural growth. Thanks for your support and interest.
