Ok, I admit it, naming my backyard microcinema (THX to Owen O'Toole for coining the word falsely credited to Rebecca Barten & David Sherman) "B.Y.O.C." was stretching things a bit to make the acronymn only one letter off from the commonly known "B.Y.O.B." (Bring Your Own Beer or Bring Your Own Booze). I say "stretching things a bit" because by using both the "B" & the "Y" of "backyard" involved breaking the compound word back into its components (not really such a problem given that "backyard" is also commonly written "back-yard" & "back yard")& having the "O" be for outdoor is somewhat redundant insofar as "backyard" already implies "outdoor".

Since I break "backyard" into "back yard" it would follow that I'd break "outdoor" into "out door" which would make the acronymn "B.Y.O.D.C." which I didn't. A further problem with the name is that it's most sensibly interpreted as standing for "Bring Your Own Cinema" which is not something I'm averse to but which isn't really the purpose behind B.Y.O.C..

What IS the purpose behind B.Y.O.C.? To create yet-another thing happening at my house to keep my social & intellectual life lively. It can be quite a bit of work but, at least, I don't have to leave my house to do it. Besides, the lack of interest in my own movies in the 'world-at-large' is so pervasive that B.Y.O.C. provides me with my only reliable screening venue. After all, I know I'll answer my emails. Given that I also have friends in similarly rejected/neglected positions I can promote their work too. The Salon de Refusé has a proud lineage.
