Rural Life with Family

Enjoying Rural life with my Grandma, sister, her husband, their 5 kids, my mom and dad, and briefly my aunt and cousin.

While we were at my Grandma's camp house, me and the kids made a short movie.

 Aren't they cute

This deer is  in my grandmas house.
I think my gramdpa shot it years ago. Its been hanging there for as long as I remember.

This is a strage natural occurring phenomenon called cypress kness.

There is lots of farms here. Corn, Soy, and Cotton.
Its winter and nothing is growing.

This is the view from my Grandma's camp house.
My mom used to swim here. Now no one does, but people do fish.
My mom always warms me about  water moccasins.

This is my grandma's back yard. It used to have a swing set in it and a giant tire that me and my cousins used to play in. There was also tons of bambo on the side of the house and alot more trees.

This is a pond behind my Grandma's house. It used to seem SOOOO far away. Now I realize its no more the maybe 150 yards.  There are many swans, ducks, and geese.

 Way to switch up Gender Roles.
Look at my nephew with the crochet needle.

The Clown

The Gambler

The  Hustler

This place is rummored to have the best soft serve ice cream in the world.

On the news I heard about  the UConn women's basketball team setting an NCAA record with 89 consecutive wins. I don't even like sports but I think its awesome these ladies are taking it to the max with their athletic talents.  With dedication like this,  women in sports will no doubt be taken more seriously. 

Mom and Dad
I did on this trip get to meet one of my mom's ex boyfriends. I won't mention names.
He is a mayor of a nearby town. He is also the Police Chief, and he also showed up driving with a styrofoam cup of some kind of alcoholic cocktail.
Guess when you are the boss, you can do what you want.

It was a lovely trip.

New York, New York

Dec 14th me and my pal Aleesa Cohene set off to spend 4 spectacular days in NY. She was gonna stay with her friend Reena , and me with my friend the  fantabulous art babe Adina Bier. On the plane we watched the dramatic season finale of Dexter, I also slept alot. Aleesa said in my sleep I omit some chemical that inspires relaxation and that she was able to effortlessly fall asleep for the first time ever on a plane. While we were awake, this is what it was like.


Aleesa enjoying her Delta Coffee.  

Adina Bier, need I say more. 
Learning the definition and difference between
"Leggings",  "Jeggings", and "Treggings"

Leggings - stretchy pants
Jeggings- stretchy, but very opaque fabric to resemble jeans
Treggings - stretchy, but very opaque fabric to resemble wool, corduroy, leather or riding pants

I also just found out about "meggings" but I feel like If I go further, I will disappear down the rabbit hole and never return. 


Eggs and potatoes and mixed veggies topped with VEGAN hollandaise sause. (yes I know it seems funny to have vegan hollandaise sause with eggs, but it just because someone can do eggs doesn't mean they are cool with milk. It was  delicious.

This was at Adinas house. She had a brunch on her lovely Pink table. She has alot of roomates and they are all nice, artistic, and creative types. 

Brunch conversation included talks about exhibitions, art, international adventure and the pros and cons of the "loft laws".

Adina took me and Aleesa to this Indian resturant.It was a small place with more christmas lights then I have ever seen in my life. I guess its like this year round. It reminded me of the bar Roses in Berlin, or at least what Roses would be if it was an Indian resturant in New York. 

Adina also took us to see 
A christmas special by Jibz Cameron.

(some of you may also know her as the 
performance arty homeless-chic fashioned funny and  introspective  musician

I thought it was pretty good. I was entertained. 
Jibz played all the charectors ( a brother and sister and mom and grandma) . Most of which were projected on screens that she interacted with. 
I saw a review that explains it pretty well here

I was pretty into it. She has a very unique face and her humor is bizzare and yet strangely honest. The first time I saw her perform was at Homo A GoGO, like a million years ago, and she pretty much blew my mind. I wondered where on earth she came from. She reminded me of Peaches on Crack, but now that I see her, it is clear she is from another dimension entirely. 

Another thing we did was go to a lecture about David Wojnarowicz
I had never heard of him before this trip, but I learned he was a  was a queer painter,photographerwriterfilmmakerperformance artist, and activist who was prominent in the New York City art world of the 1980s. He died of aids in 1992. 

So fast forward to modern day... there is something happening now I heard one "intellectual" refer to as the "second culture war". I don't know what the first one was, I just know that David Wojnarowicz had a silent video piece called "A FIRE IN MY BELLY" in the Smithsonian in the exhibit "Hide/Seek: Difference and Disire in American Portraiture" at the American Portrait Gallery. After complaints from the Catholic League and Rep. John Boehner it was removed. 

In response, The Andy Warhol Foundation, which had co-sponsored the exhibition, announced that it would not fund future Smithsonian projects, then several institutions, including SFMOMA, and ICP (which is where I saw it) scheduled showings of the removed work. 

You can see it here.

This is an excerpt of the whole video, that you can see here

Anyways lots of Queer people, lots of people in general are up in arms about this. Some think that this is an example of censorship and Catholics oppressing queers. Some Catholics see this as anti catholic ( the scene about the ants crawling on Jesus was sited in the complaint) 

Me, well, I didn't think this piece depicted much queer representation that I related to. 
So the removal doesn't feel oppresive to me. 

And I also feel like The Smithsonian is in addition to being a gallery, it is a business. Alot of its contributors are Catholic. If it offends them, why not take it out. I don't feel like the Smithsonian 
owes anything to anyone. I don't think I or anyone else should be looking exclusively at the Smithsonian for Queers in Art history. Its not like they are banning the piece from being shown any where else. 

Maybe I am stupid, I just can't seem to wrap my head around why this is a big deal. 
I don't get it. 

I also don't think the Smithsonian is the "authority" on anything relevant to me.  Its a bunch of famous artists work who made "art history" , and any one making art knows that for every famous artist, there is a whole movement of people you have never heard of doing equally important and similar things. 

So he is not getting the "proper recognition" for his contributions to art history.  There is a million artist who will never even see the inside of the Smithsonian ever. If he wasn't famous no one would give a shit.  

I think any one upset about this should set up continue to set up their own viewings and stop bitch pissing and moaning about the smithsonian and its responsibilities. 

The point is there is just one piece that is not showing in one place. 

I have to say if this controversy never happened, I probably would've never heard of him. 

Ok, so this part didn't happen in NY but I want to tell you about it anyways cuz its loosely related and it's really cool.  Adina and her sister Arielle Bier recently returned from  the Miami Art Basel Art Fair (something I saw referred to as one of the most important art fairs in the world) They did an installation / performance where  they played  the Scream Club song  "Keep That Control" ( a collaboration we did with THE SHOES) every hour, on the hour, and on the last day on repeat. 

Some photos from the exhibition. 

Now that is some art I can sink my teeth into. These girls amaze me. 
Find out more about them out.

I just did a photo shoot with Shai Levy.
He was super nice, fast, and patient, especially cuz I had compelty spaced that I had a photo shoot that morning.

Lucky I am super quick at getting ready. Since I sleep in my clothes, it made it easy to get dressed. All I had to do was throw on a jacket, paint on my eyebrow and I was good to go.

I am totally pleased how the photos came out. Take a look for yourself

There are also lots of other awesome photos on the site too, including pictures of Maebh and Dave from You're Only Massive.

Speaking of Your'e Only Massive, I did a track with them for their Fourth Quarter  mixtape. You check it out here.

Thanks Shai.
And thank you for checking it out.

Monday Dec 13th

Its 3:11.
Its been a long day. I was awakened by the Buzzer. It was Aleesa at around noon to begin
preparations for the I'M SO HUNGRY brunch at THE FAB LAB. I began rearranging the whips of Anton Blume, so they wouldn't hang in the food or on peoples heads. I was running on only a few hours of sleep, cuz not only did I dj the night before at Barbie Deinhoff's, I also wen't to Dyke Fight after that to see Lisa and Henri aka the TEAM STEEG DJ duo. It was still on and poppin when I got there at like 4. Lisa looked cool dancing and djing with her new black mullet action.The night before that was the Nicky Click / Athens Boys Choir show at THE FAB LAB. During that show I got a suprise visit from an old friend from Colorado, Germain aka GBO and her band mate Alex. They are on tour with their band SHADY BABES. I know GBO since way back in the day. We used to be in a band called RAINBOW SUGAR. I rapped in it, Gbo played drums,  Amy Fantastic played Bass, Miss Michelle , Toshimi and Sherry Hern also played guitar in it before we became a raping bass and drum trio. 

Amy and Gbo went on to join JOSH TAYLORS FRIENDS FOREVER and Gbo also went on to play drums in OLD TIME RELIJUN and now Arrington's new band.

We used to do a bunch of crazy shit together. With Gbo and Amy is where I discovered my love of public nudity and humiliation. Amy taught me how to shop lift at thrift stores, we used to go to parties and start the parties. Always the rowdiest bunch wherever we went. FRIENDS FOREVER was our favorite band, the first band to take us on tour, and I guess the first "dream come true" I ever experienced was with those girls.

So GBO is in town. I am getting ready to leave town. NYC and then Louisiana to visit my family for two weeks. 

This is my night at Barbies. I was originally gonna play only SEXJAMS but changed my mind, no one seemed to noticed. The lovely ANGO and AMINUS were bar tending.

Just recieved these 2 new cds. Stoked to Check them out AMIMUS and NUCLEAR FAMILY.

Vannesa and Muriel, always nice faces to see.

 These are two Scream Club fans that were there that seemed to be suprised I was djing for such a small place. I mean, being in the world famous band SCREAM CLUB and all. I know its a shock.
It still suprises me too.

The Lovely Aga. She dosen't so much like being photographed I had to take this one papparazzi style.

My beautiful loving and supportive friends Sarah Adorable and Aleesa Cohene.

Aleesa , very proud, very happy, utterly delighte to be sharing her  glowing ball.  She had to go to a whole different dimension to bring this baby back.
