The Museum of Interesting Things
Back to the Futurist – The Futurist Missing Link Factor

(yes you can have this at your school or event too!)

The Museum of Interesting Things will teach you how you can actually go Back To The Future! We bring items that you thought were today or tomorrow but actually those “futurist” items made us go back and then back further and through our extensive research found the future right there in the past!  We will also bring items from our Missing Link Factor exhibit, the link between disparate and not so disparate items through history that brought us the items we take for granted in our lives. Sometimes you will be surprised, sometimes entertained and all the while hopefully you will learn something not just new but future/retro new. So come back to the Futurist with us!

Denny Daniels’ next Secret Speakeasy event to raise funds for his Museum of Interesting Things will take place on Sunday, May 31st, 2015, 6-11pm, in the loft of 177 Prince Street. The theme: The “History of Photography & Film …especially 3D”.  Admission price: $10 to help the museum.  Beverages, alcoholic and otherwise, sold on-site at a markup.  Here is his usual pitch for the Secret Speakeasy events:

See 16mm short films
Hear original vinyl records
Enjoy actual antiques you can handle and get demonstrated!
Drink and enjoy refreshments!

However, a few important distinctions have arisen with this one: firstly, it is promoted as an “all ages” event (not that anything society ordinarily deems “inappropriate for children” -with the possible exception of an antique plug-in vibrator was exhibited/screened at the previous Denny Daniels events I have attended, and, in fact, minors were present at some of these previous events as well); and secondly, the webpage with event information now has a link to eventbrite.com to make advance ticket reservations possible. Also, a play is being performed at the same space right before the Secret Speakeasy event, and people are encouraged to attend.

Highlights of the items to be exhibited at the upcoming event include a “wristwatch”-style “spy” camera, said to use super-small discs of film, and a “rare” 3D VHS tape video camera. This is in addition to the stereoscope images, magic lantern slides, and similar items Daniels has shown at previous events.…
