In late September, Ignition Northwest was contacted by Maque Davis (Fremont Arts Council, Cirque de Flambe, The Moisture Festival) with an interesting opportunity. Maque asked for INW’s assistance with organizing a workshop called “Flame Effects for the Artist”. This class, which has previously been held in New York, Reno, Toronto, Detroit and San Francisco, is taught by Dave Scholl, otherwise known as Dave X, Burning Man’s Fire Safety Manager of over 10 years; and Eric Smith, better known as Propaniac, Chief Inspector for the State of Nevada Board for the Regulation of LP Gas.

Do not let a moment go by that doesn’t remind you that your heart beats a hundred thousand times a day and that there are enough gallons of blood to make you an ocean.
We are big fans of Spoken Word and Poetry here at Saucey Dogs. During our inaugural week, this piece seems particulary appropriate. Anis Mojgani is a two-time National Slam Poetry Champion. Here he performs “Shake the Dust” in January 2010 at the House of Blues in Orlando, Florida.
