Bosh Film Festival on Chris Bosh's Injury, a Heat Win, and New Discosoma Records Song for James Jones
You may have heard of theBorscht Film Festival
, but have you heard of theBosh Film Festival
If you take a peek at the festival's website, you'll notice a wild world of Chris Bosh imaginations. The site was conceived and created by Bleeding Palm's Ronnie Rivera the Executive Necromage (whatever that means) and curator of the festival. We wanted to know more about the song, the festival, and their official take on Bosh's injury, so we connected with Chris Quinn, Minister of Jurassic Arts (a position created by Steven Spielberg?) to discuss.
"Chris Bosh can only be appreciated when contextualized outside of the

"Bosh is celestial, his time is near. Udonis Haslem is my spirit
animal." Guess that's a no. Haslem is celestial where we come from -- that would be either
Miramar or Miami, depending on what you choose to believe from this wiki entry.
Is the Bosh Film Festival real? Yes, apparently it's set to happen sometime this fall. If you take a peek at their website, you may notice a few funny facts. As far as how accurate the site is, Quinn says, "All
of the facts on the site are absolutely true -- somewhere in the
In the multiverse: The Bosh Film Festival was founded last year when
Chris Bosh donated 1% of his salary ($160,225) to the Borscht Film
Festival. Since we have a really stupid name to begin with (Borscht), we didn't
mind changing our festival (name) to the Bosh Film Festival. This was just the
latest high-profile donation from a South Florida athlete to an arts
In our universe: Our tweets (to Chris Bosh) went unanswered, and
the Miami Herald got very upset when they almost ran the story (of the Bosh Film Festival). Now, we
are attempting to bring the festival into this universe. It will run in
competition with the Borscht Film Festival later this year, and will be
curated by Bleeding Palm. All life is real life.
Of the recent abdominal strain that may keep Bosh from hitting the court
for the remainder of the season, Quinn remarks, "Free your mind, Liz Tracy. Bosh's injury is an
absolute fiction. As the keeper of the Great Sword of Gorg-Dak-Tox Bosh
occasionally has duties to the Star Prince PXXA. He was called away on
duty and will return to the court once he has vanquished his foes.
Bosh's sinews know nothing of mammalian weakness." Wait. What?
sleepwalking is a sound project by ANR's MJ Hancock and Jared McKay of Coral Morphologic. Bosh Film Festival called upon this duo to do something of great importance. "They are making a soundtrack for the
mythical lives of the Miami Heat roster -- except for Shane Battier." Quinn then rambled on about Battier being a warlock.
and improves 3-point shooting percentage when listened to on headphones." Get this baby on Mike Miller's ears ASAP, please.
The real question we want answered though by this Quinn, who clearly has such a strong Bosh connection: Can the Heat win without Bosh? "It
depends on the game. If we are talking about the primitive arithmetic
of 'basketball' then yes. If we are talking about the real game being
played before our very eyes that we can never understand, then no." Hopefully, Quinn is wrong.
