 » The Top 30 Albums of 2010 - Fashionably, fabulously late, our favorite music (and believe me, there was a LOT) of 2010, the year that some have called the best year for music ever. And only some of those fools work here. Plenty of usual suspects, lots of ties and a few surprises that I won't spoil, including our unexpected #1.

Los Angeles-based artist, musician and filmmaker Brian Butler, "who creates works around dark magical themes," will be mounting his latest project, a sub-10-minute film called Night of Pan, on February 20th in London.

Along with the writer and director, the short film features Kenneth Anger, an actor hailed as "a landmark of both experimental and gay cinema" by Subterranean Cinema, and the Buffalo '66 and Brown Bunny auteur and infamous reciever of fellatio Vincent Gallo. In the film the three actors "depict a pagan ritual that symbolizes the stage of ego death in the process of spiritual attainment."

The London screening will be held at the underground and avant-garde arts venue The Horse Hospital, and will be the UK premiere of the film. Night of Pan has previously been presented in various versions at film festivals around the globe, including Lisbon, Cannes, Athens, Rome, and Berlin. Earlier this month a version of the film was included in the selection for the opening of the Projections Festival in Los Angeles alongside works from Spike Jonze, Harmony Korine and Miranda July, and this extremely short iteration (which also serves as the film's trailer) appeared at OneDreamRush, a 42 Second Film Showcase created by the Beijing Film Studio.

Admission to the event is free, Butler will be on hand to present the film and will also perform music with Death in Vegas' Richard Fearless.

The LAS Staff
A number of the Lost At Sea staff have worked and continue to work for various publications, both independent and commercial. Often very stifling in their narrow focus, conventional media outlets left our writers hungry for something bigger, more diverse, more communal. More active, because this is the twenty-first century and it makes sense. During it's short life LAS has accomplished many of its goals (but not all) and has in turn set new ones. Everything that we accomplish is through teamwork and cooperation, both with our regular staff writers and with our contributing writers. LAS is nothing short of a collective. Another contrasting point to some of the magazines out there is that we've checked our egos and scene ethics at the door. We welcome anyone and everyone to contribute and cover a wide range of topics. LAS does not follow your guide lines.
