This documentary chronicles the life and art of Bob Flanagan, who was diagnosed with the disease cystic fibrosis. Director Kirby Dick examines how Flanagan began routinely maiming his own body to deal with and overcome the acute physical pain he felt every day.

The Headline Monologues is a series of creative monologues by local writers based on news headlines! Join us Saturday Feb 9 at 7pm at The Baker's Dozen for this unique event.
Entry is $10 or you can bring your own monologue to get in for FREE.
1. Find a headline from any article written in the last year or so (there's no strict cut-off date) that you think more people should know about. Your headline can be from any newspaper or news website.
2. Write a monologue inspired by the headline. It can be in any genre or style, and does not need to be directly related to the article. Think of it as an emotional/expressive response to the article, rather than a monologue based on the article.
3. Bring your monologue (and your headline) to The Baker's Dozen on Feb 9 at 7pm and you will be able to get in for FREE!
You will read your own monologue at some point during the night, followed by a free-form discussion with the audience. Please do not feel the need to steer clear of politics or hot button issues, either. The point of this is to get artists and audiences to engage with current events in a fun, safe, and creative way.
ALSO NOTE: This is only meant to get people writing, sharing their writing, and engaging in dialogue through writing. If it's your first time doing something like this, do not worry! It does not have to be a great, polished monologue. Some of you have a lot of experience with writing, while others may not have as much, but we'd like to get as many different perspectives in the room as possible.
If you have any questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.

IMDb: "The year is 1899, and Christian, a young English writer, has come to Paris to follow the Bohemian revolution taking hold of the city's drug and prostitute infested underworld. And nowhere is the thrill of the underworld more alive than at the Moulin Rouge, a night club where the rich and poor men alike come to be entertained by the dancers, but things take a wicked turn for Christian as he starts a deadly love affair with the star courtesan of the club, Satine. But her affections are also coveted by the club's patron: the Duke. A dangerous love triangle ensues as Satine and Christian attempt to fight all odds to stay together but a force that not even love can conquer is taking its toll on Satine."
Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease. An autoimmune disease results when the body's system for fighting infection (the immune system) turns against a part of the body. In diabetes, the immune system attacks the insulin-producing beta cells in the pancreas and destroys them.
Diabetes has always been in my life. My wonderful mother (1955-2008) was diagnosed with diabetes when she was 15 years old and lived insulin dependent for the rest of her life.
While I was pregnant I had gestational diabetes and I had to manage it with insulin.
January of last year my son was diagnosed (at 2 and a half years old) with type 1 diabetes (thank you genetics 😑). Thankfully, because I was aware of what to watch for (my mom educated me on how my children will have a greater risk for diabetes then myself and what to look for) I knew and had tests done. I wasn’t surprised when the diagnosis came in but I was scared and to be honest a bit irritated because we are way overdue for a cure.
My son needs 5 needles a day. Every single time he eats he needs insulin, EVERY SINGLE TIME, and EVERY SINGLE DAY. Birthdays, vacations, holidays, weekends....EVERY SINGLE DAY he needs 5 needles to help his body carry his carbs through his body so he has energy and continues to grow.
There are more children now, then ever before being diagnosed with diabetes each year and there is really no explanation as to why, so that’s where you come in!
Join me in a paint pouring event where I will be donating 💯 of the proceeds to diabetes research in support of Kirsten Sophia who will be running in the Edinburgh marathon in April to raise money for diabetes, diabetes camps and for her god daughter Evie. ❤️
There are only 10 spots available for this fundraiser! If we can fill these spots I’m going to donate an additional $100 so we, as a community can give $500 to an incredibly important cause!
With all that being said please Facebook message Ashes Alley to book your spot and let’s start 2019 by giving to a foundation who is working so incredibly hard already to find a cure for diabetes.
$40 - per person - 14x14 or 10x20 canvas.
