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.  
:: 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.
