p.s. Hey. ** Cal Graves, Hi, Cal! Solid is a good word for it. Hm, I don’t know who did the lettering. As it doesn’t look GB’s handwriting, I would guess it was Scott? Awesome, congrats, on the ‘one class to go’ front. What’ll happen next? What are your plans? I’m good, working on stuff, and all is well. We’d love to screen ‘PGL’ in Texas. I’ll ask the US distributor if there’s anything happening in Texas. If not, if I can find out about possible venues, we can approach them and see if there are any bites. Take care. ** David Ehrenstein, Ah, I was right. My mom loved that song. Wow, he was a very intense performer. I’m surprised there’s not a rabid cult following for him. ** alex, Hey, hey, big A! Thank you, sir. Cynthia Plaster Caster! Hudson did a show of her stuff at the old Feature space in SoHo, some of her cock plaster casts and other things. I really wanted to buy one of the casts, I can’t remember of whose cock, but I was too skint. I’ll look for that book, cool, thanks. I should do a post on her. Oh gosh, I will. I do agree that there seems to be a big excavating of that period’s stuff right now, and that it’s weird, although it’s also somehow so, so predictable. A mirror … I don’t know, you think? It seems maybe like a cynically wide-eyed wish for actual wildness rather than the wildness branding that passes for it amongst buyers and sellers and promoters these days or something? Anything that stinks of 50% nostalgia makes me bored and vaguely ill, so I don’t know. But there was some great stuff then, and its route upwards had hugely less security checks. Or something. Oh thank you for the b’day gift! I love it, no surprise. I feel remarkably more awake now. Big love to you, you sublime explosive, you. ** _Black_Acrylic, My pleasure, of course. Awesome, awesome about the point in the birth canal where The Call currently sits. So cool. Very excited! ** Steve Erickson, Ha ha, very close, in fact, but no cigar. I.e., Zac made me cold sesame noodle for my birthday, but I didn’t start eating them until yesterday. Cool about the Sneaks download and review assignment. Very curious. One possible reason why Bruce so outstrips GB in the production area is that he’s fame-hungry and very self-promoting, and GB is the opposite. Also, GB is extremely non-prolific. I believe it took her something like 18 years to finish her most recent film. ** Bernard Welt, Hi, B. I’d call you Swami, but, yeah, anyone who really knows me, which obviously includes you, knows where my mouth and heart combination lies. Well, you know I am always extremely into posts by you whenever you have the time and stuff. People are going nuts for that Klimt show. Wish I’d been proximate. When the Billy book happening? What exactly is it? Ooh, killer. I saw or rather read about your fucking snow, and I’m cool with it, I guess, or I mean I don’t blame you for Paris’ climate change drying out. But I bet your fair cities won’t have thousands of people wearing yellow vests and stomping around in a tear gas haze lighting things on fire today, will you? Gosh, if only. ** Misanthrope, G, hi. Uh, hm. I always imagined myself living a long, long time. I must have logically realised that meant I would be gray-haired and saggy faced and aches-and-pain-y by default, so I guess so. But I was never seriously suicidal, and I always wanted to be immortal, so yeah. But I didn’t actually foresee myself looking physically like my grandparents, no. I want that cake. I want that eclair. Especially your mom’s mashed potatoes. Christ, is there anything in the world better than mashed potatoes apart from cold sesame noodle? Writing, good, hit it, nothing better. I will check your FB thing. Did I miss it? Big weekend! ** Keatmosis, I did not know that, huh. God love them. I was basically meh about ‘Les Garcons’. I’m on its side theoretically, for sure. But, Christ, that part on the ship was easily 8 hours too long. Other than that, I get it. Make the weekend turn upside down and beg for tickles. ** Bill, Hi, Bill. Yeah, we just found out this morning that the festival got us three nights in a hotel starting on the 2nd, so we should have more free time than I’d feared, cool! No, we have to head back to LA the morning after the last screening because we’ll have a screening down there. Darn. ** Okay. This weekend I give you my new gif work. Like the previous two gif works I’ve posted, it’s part of a gif novel I’m working on. As always, any thoughts or reactions or takes or anything else in its regard would be greatly appreciated by me. Have fine weekends, and I’ll see you on Monday.
