Nerd Nite 21 brings you Sam Shepard, Charles and Ray Eames (who we love!), and William Morris (the marxist textile designer, not the talent agency). We’re excited to meet some new nerds with the help of Rob Shulte, Meredith Moore, and John Kaleugher.
Rob recommends the following you-tube clips to whet your appetite for Sam Shepard.
Curse of the Starving Class
Fool for Love
Lie of the Mind
If you want to learn more about the man check out his autobiography Motel Chronicles.
Unfortunately we don’t have a collection of the plays Rob talks about, but we can score them on inter-library loan.
Here’s some collections of his plays that include Curse of the Starving Class, Buried Child, True West, Fool for Love, and Lie of the Mind.
For Charles and Ray Eames we’ve got this documentary (it is Doctober after all), this book on mid-century design, and this one on modern architecture.
The Eames were also prolific film makers, and while we don’t own this collection, we can get it for you!
We’ve got this biography of William Morris, this book that focuses more on his design, and here’s one on The Red House.
