Yo, check it. This is some thought-provoking stuff.
At Rockefeller Center
White Man's Unburdening
I see oppressive Power as a monstrous beast, fostered by a consumerist
economy, devouring the resources of the world through it's obscenely
Since last fall, I have had a vision of a black mass of crude oil
tainted with blood clots.
It is being spilled in a big splash right in front of the "Atlas"
statue at Rockefeller Center.
Ideally I would do a live performance at Rockefeller Center, using my
manufactured fake oil and blood. But in the current political climate,
it may be a problem to get the permit for this from NYPD.
On May 15, 2004 I staged a live performance (see title above) in my
studio in Red Hook, Brooklyn: An oil barrel was lowered from the
ceiling by roper on a pulley system, to coincide with the "burden" of
the Atlas, which was projected from a beamer. A mime performer was also
coinciding with the body of the Atlas statue. I executed the spill
myself by ripping open the lid of the barrel.
This was accompanied by music performed by 3 rock musicians on a
podium, and strobe lights flickering over the "studio stage", The whole
thing took about 10 minutes. On the studio wall, I had pasted a long
list of corporate war profiteers.
Riddle me this: what's the point of going to parties if you're not single? I usually spend half of them saying stuff like, 'Look, I'm not going to waste your time. There are a lot of good-looking women here, and I have a boyfriend." It's like swimming: once you're in, there's absolutely nothing to do.
As re: Slim, he's working until midnight or so.
Said someone to me today, in an undertone, "Not to break the fourth wall of blogging, but I read your 'Amazing Girls' rant, and I fucking hate those ethereal bitches."
