Elijah performed a couple of deejaying gigs over the past few weeks. Here are some photo from them [1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6] [7] and snippets of him in this video.

:: One of the gigs was spinning at The Breeders concert in Los Angeles. Not only was he "spinning records like it was no thang," he had the opportunity to interview the band for Magnet Magazine. While you wait to get your copy, you can read an excerpt.

:: Could there be something for us Dirk Gently fans? Executive Producer, Arvind Ethan David, hinted on Twitter that some small treats are being worked on from the short-lived, highly-loved series. Personally, I'm hoping for a DVD/Blu-ray packed with a lot of behind the scenes footage, a soundtrack, deleted scenes and an impressive gag reel.

:: Yes, it's be quiet, but I discovered a couple of new/old photos taken by Theo Jemison of Elijah during his work on Flying Lotus' music video, Tiny Tortures in 2012. The inset photo is one and click for the other.

That's all... for now.

Last weekend the March for Our Lives rally was held across the nation as well as other countries, and Elijah along with his girlfriend participated with the tens of thousands that gathered in downtown Los Angeles. Here's a short video and a photo that captured them among the demonstrators.

:: Before that and just at the end of SXSW, Elijah took to the waters of Austin to do some bassquatch fishing. [1] [2]

:: SpectreVision has unleashed their first mobile game, Join Dispatch, which can be downloaded. This seems like a unique undertaking, so if you want to know what this entails, read more about it here.

:: Director of I Don't Feel at Home..., Macon Blair, shared a photo on Twitter of some of the cast that was taken on set.

:: If you live in or near L.A., and want to catch The Breeders next Thursday, April 5th, the added bonus is a DJ set from Elijah. Get your tickets!

:: Finally, I stumbled upon a site that has a number of podcasts that Elijah has given or are about him. Most are still active, so if you'd like to catch up on some old interviews, head on over to PodBean.

That's all... for now.

South by Southwest Festival is winding down in Austin and Elijah has been there to spin some tunes, do a little hosting and just enjoying himself. You can find some images from SXSW here.

:: There are some short videos from attendees who got to witness the dynamic duo of Wooden Wisdom. [Video 1] [Video 2] [Video 3] [Video 4]

:: Going through the images from SXSW, you'll catch Elijah in a cowboy hat and an ominous "wanted" poster. This was from the SXSWestworld attraction hosted by HBO and held during the festival. It looks like a pretty awesome experience and you can read a spectator's account of what went down between Elijah and the sheriff of Sweetwater.

:: Next month, Tribeca Film Festival will screen Company X's latest film.... hold on now... 7 Stages to Achieve Eternal Bliss by Passing Through the Gateway Chosen by the Holy Storsh, as part of the midnight screenings. And we thought I Don't Feel at Home in this World Anymore was a mouthful.

:: Switching over to SpectreVision, their film, Mandy, has been picked up and slated for a summer release in the U.S.

:: Elijah will perform a DJ set in Hollywood next month and has been slated to make an appearance at MegaCon in Orlando in May.

:: I'll end this update with the discouraging news that despite fans gallant efforts and attempts producers made, Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency will not see another season. The announcement came just on the heels of the petition surpassing 100,000 signatures and a postcard campaign that was in full swing to harvest one more season. Obviously, us die hard fans are upset but somewhat understanding that we won't get to experience the next mystery with Dirk, Todd, Amanda, Farah, Bart, Ken, The Rowdy 3 and what other manic characters comes their way. Where else could receptive people watch a perfect combination of a mystifying comedy, heartfelt characters and clever storytelling? Dirk Gently was consistently showered with great reviews, so it's tough to see such an extraordinary delightful and highly engaging program cut short without giving viewers closure and Dirk Gently a proper farewell. It has been one of the most diverse and loyal fan bases for a television show I've been a part of. However, executive producer Arvind David left a little hope that Dirk could be resurrected at some point. You can read his statement here and a lovely wrap up from writer Max Landis here. There may not have been as many trees in Dirk's forest as they wanted, but the trees that are there are tall and strong and that forest could use more seeds from the farmers. All that being said, I don't feel Dirktectives will give up.

That's all... for now.

All is quiet here on the front, but Elijah and part of team SpectreVision were in Montreal recently, most likely to check progress on their upcoming VR venture with Ubisoft, Transference, which is slated to drop in June. Here are a few sightings from the visit. [1] [2] [3]

:: Over the Garden Wall is still beating strong. A new tale of Greg and Wirt is being produced as a graphic novel coming out in November. You can read more about it at The Beat.

:: Fans' effort to Save Dirk Gently is moving onward with over 93,000 signatures on the petition. Another rouse to get voices heard has been launched to send postcards to Netflix. Here is one of my cards to them.

:: Though neither Elijah nor Samuel advanced to the final actor round in this fun television poll, Dirk Gently has gone on to other finals in several categories as well as best episode and Sci-fi program.

:: Oscar weekend is coming and since new images are a bit limited, the inset photo is from the 2004 ceremony.

:: Adding a new portion to A&F, we are sharing an artist's journey. Nino is attempting to paint one image of Elijah a week for the year and we will feature her paintings in the fan art section. Good luck Nino!

That's all... for now.

Seems like Elijah has gone a bit incognito again. Hopefully it means he's held up reading scripts and looking for his next challenging project. For the time being, there are a few things.

:: Elijah quietly made an appearance for a program at the Egyptian Theater for American Cinematheque's tribute to the Beastie Boys. As you recall, Elijah portrayed Ad-Rock in their popular 2011 short film/music video, Fight for Your Right Revisited. Currently, there isn't footage from the event, but there are a few photos. [1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6]

:: Filmmaker Magazine posted a discussion during the Sundance Film Festival about the workings of a production company. The team at SpectreVision took part in this and you can read about it here.

:: If you're up for a little friendly competition, there's a poll taking place where you can vote on the best TV shows from 2017. Dirk Gently is in several categories if you want to join in the next round beginning sometime this week. And don't forget to sign the petition to Save Dirk Gently with nearly 82,000 others so fans can continue to experience things connecting.

:: Closing out this short update with the sad news of the untimely passing of composer Johann Johannsson. His brilliant career yielded stirring music for films such as The Theory of Everything, where he won a Golden Globe, Sicario and Arrival. One of his last works was for Mandy, SpectreVision's newest film. They tweeted, "Johann Johannsson was our dear friend, our treasured colleague and our beloved collaborator. We are devastated by his passing, but blessed by the breathtaking beauty that he leaves behind. Elijah also tweeted, "So distraught and saddened to hear of Johannís passing. He was such an extraordinary composer and artist."

:: That's all... for now.
