I ran an artists' colony in an old church in KS.
I spent 15 months performing in a stunt show in China.
I just moved back to LA.
Aiming for transgression and transcendence.
Filling it with as much art / literature / performance / film / dining out / possibility as possible.
I do a mean "That's Life" at karaoke.
THE THINGS I'VE ALWAYS LOVED:
Norman Mailer, especially Ancient Evenings
Ishiguro's The Unconsoled
Anything related to early 20th Century avant-garde movements
WHAT I'M READING AS OF LATE: Pataphysics: a useless guide
Wallace Shawn's Night Thoughts
I subscribe to Artforum, Bookforum, Modern Painters, New American Paintings, and the Paris Review
My Dinner with Andre, Sweet Movie, Texas Chainsaw Massacre
Taylor Mac's 24 Decade (and 24 hour!) History of Popular Music
Wallace Shawn/Andre Gregory's production of A MASTER BUILDER
The Vienna Actionists
I have an endless tolerance for drones, noodling electronics, tinkly pianos and combinations thereof. So I listen to a lot of things that orbit the universe of, say, R. Andrew Lee and William Basinski and Pauline Oliveros. Yoko Ono's "Mind Train" has become the song of my summer...but also, you know, the usual suspects: Talking Heads, Tom Waits, Lana Del Rey, Chance the Rapper, Dirty Projectors, etc. etc....
Donuts, ice cream, breakfast, the strangest thing on the menu...bring on the "ox root" and jellyfish head and duck blood...
Most other things are negotiable.
You straddle the line between highbrow and lowbrow
You ask yourself "What If?" questions
You want to hang out and have fun
