p.s. RIP Lee Scratch Perry. ** Richard Hell, writer/curator Donatien Grau, and I had a conversation for Diaphanes Magazine that turned out pretty well, and it’s online if you want to read it. ** Corey Heiferman, Hi Corey. They’re a little harder to hunt down on youtube these days, but they’re hanging in there, as you could see. What is happy? I feel like happiness should be something one redefines as the world continually recontextualizes us. My weekend wasn’t bad. I’m doing a fair number of interviews about ‘I Wished’ right now, and I did a couple of those. I worked on the virtual haunted house project. I finally saw Carax’s ‘Annette’. I loved its first half hour or so, then I felt impatient with it for about an hour, and then I thought the last hour or so of it was great and that the ending was fantastic, so ultimately I loved it, flaws and all. How was yours? ** Chris kelso, Hi, Chris. Thanks, man. I remember Ogreish, etc., yeah. I can’t take watching the real thing. Back when I was fervently researching serial killer stuff I did manage to sometimes so I could feel what seeing that would feel like. There are still sites like that out there with presumably decent followings. I sometimes dip into them just to read the comments about the videos because they can quite fascinating. No, no package yet, but I’ll keep my eyes ever so peeled. Should be soon, yeah? Thank you! Take awesome care of yourself. xo. ** Dominik, Hi!!! If you mean the virtual haunted house, we have hopes of taking it on the road if turns out well and if The Pinault Foundation, who’s funding it, lets it travel. I’ll probably do a post about it too when it’s further along. I think that shower one did win the nonexistent best title contest. Love making everyone get so bored of the Foo Fighters that they’re forced to climb into a time machine, return to 1994 and break up before they record their first album, G. ** David, Hi. 31 degrees Centigrade or Fahrenheit. If it’s Fahrenheit, yum, if it’s Centigrade, you’re on your own, ha ha. I hate heat. xo. ** Misanthrope, You are a sick, sick man. My generation of kids got vaxed at school every year, I can’t remember against what — polio? — and a lot of us — not me, strangely — have little craters in our upper arms to show for it. Over here you need a vax passport to go to cafes, restaurants, museums, etc. If it helps, and who knows, it doesn’t bother me. Laura Beth Noble is someone I haven’t thought about in years. Wow. Sounds like some dream. ** Bill, Thank you. Obviously, I agree. And thanks for the link to the direct source. I’ll get Group first. Cheers. Tally ho! I vaguely have heard about ‘Slum Virgin’ but only vaguely. Huh, that does sound kind of exciting. All right, going for it. ** Jamie, Hi, pal! What do you want bet that you and I are the only people who watched every single one of those videos without our senses of fun losing their boners. As many as there were, I was disappointed when I couldn’t find any more. I’m good. Oh, man, I’m so sorry your guts are acting so prickish. I trust you’re doing everything available to chill them out. Thanks about the Richard Hell talk. Yeah, it was fun. I hadn’t talked to Richard in ages. Well, I published a novel by Richard with LHotB that’s good: ‘Godlike’. His autobio ‘I Dreamed I Was a Very Clean Tramp’ is very good. ‘Go Now’ is also excellent. Happy news about your lovely cinema! No small thing. I’ve been good, busy, mostly working on the virtual haunted house project and doing ‘I Wished’-related interviews and stuff. Going to Stockholm tomorrow to show ‘PGL’, which is exciting. You only posted once, and guarantee it was my bratty site’s engine that was the culprit in whatever you feared. Love, me. ** David Ehrenstein, The QAnon phenom will definitely make for one of the most readable chapters in future history books. ** _Black_Acrylic, Hi, Ben. So extremely true. I’m happy you’ve made the start on the writing. No doubt a linguistic avalanche is imminent. ** Steve Erickson, Yes, it’s very sad for my blog that those kinds of videos are now locked away inside Instagram. So, dare I ask, was it in fact good enough to be true? ** Okay. I alway really liked this old, google-murdered post so I’ve brought back to life. Simple as that. See you tomorrow,.
