My dear friend Zoh invited me to see The Rockettes at Radio City Music Hall.  Her costume shop she worked on the fancy crystal costumes for the final skit.  It was a such a treat to have a ridiculously festive date with her.

Dame Darcy’s Gasoline
11.19.08 | No Comments

My dearest friend and fellow good witch Dame Darcy had her art opening today at Sloan Fine art.  Tonight, I arrived right on time at her opening and I waited (with her best friend) for her to arrive.  We looked at her amazing illustrations and talked about how much we love Darcy.  I have adored her work since high school and since then we have become close friends.  After 40 minutes I went home and with a fresh copy of Gasoline in my arms.  I can’t wait to cuddle with her drawings and her story tonight.  I am so proud of her for finally publishing her book and I hope that she will have a brighter and better future once she moves out west.

Darcy, I know you are leaving New York with a broken heart but my heart will always be with you….

Anton Corbjin, Control (2007)
07.16.08 | No Comments

This lovely black and white movie was much better than I expected it to be.  It was so exciting to see the first film made by one of my all time favorite photographers Anton Corbjin. Each shot was more gorgeous than the last and the acting was really impressive.  It was so true to life, at times I thought I was watching a documentary.  I can’t wait to see what Corbjin comes up with next.

Mutek Montreal 2008
06.13.08 | No Comments

I ended up having more fun at the smaller festival Mutek because of the intimacy of the events. We were only there for the last two days of the festival. Saturday night we headed over to Metropolis for an amazing line up. I was excited to see Chloe live but for me the best act of the night was a debut dubby set by Code 9 and Space Ape. This normally isn’t even the kind of music I like but there was something really transcendent about their performance. After their set ended DJ Olive said “Wow that was like Sun Ra!”

The real highlight of the weekend was the outdoor Picnic Electronique with Mathias Kaden & Onur Özur djing together. We danced all day in the foggy wet light rain. No one seemed to be phased by the crappy weather because the music and the vibe was so unbelievably good. In their totally creative set Mathias Kaden & Onur Özur mixed strings and horns into techno tracks. Plus they were super cute to watch as they picked records to play and danced together.

Here is David Last’s amazing photo documentation of Mutek 2008 on Flickr

The visuals were gorgeous and totally different for each act. Photo by Seze

How lucky we are! We danced under a Calder sculpture all day in the rain.

Frida Kahlo, Patron Saint of Art Girls Worldwide
04.30.08 | No Comments

I had a chance to see the gorgeous Frida Kahlo exhibit at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Seeing the exhibit made me want to watch the beautiful film Frida (2002) starring Salma Hayek again. The film is based on “Frida: A Biography of Frida Kahlo” by Hayden Herrera (who also helped to curate the Philadelphia exhibition). I read about two thirds of the book but I had to put it down because her life was just too painful to keep reading about. Seeing the exhibit was great, I had a chance to see some old friends (paintings that I have loved since my teenage years) and I started some new friendships (with some rare photographs and paintings that were included in the show)

Frida Kahlo, Self Portrait with Monkeys, 1943 is one of my favorites

Girls Together Outragously
03.31.08 | No Comments

My stepdad just gave me this cd randomly. I guess because he knows I like strange obscure music by women. The GTO’s are an all girl groupies group produced by Frank Zappa in the late 1960s. One of the group’s members Pamela Des Barres, wrote the memoir I’m with the Band. Their cd Permanent Damage is a weird mixture of strange theatrical songs and random interviews. It is very rough music but it does precede some later girl bands like Liliput, The Raincoats, Rasputina, CocoRosie, and they even remind me of my friend Dame Darcy’s music.

It is as if you gave the mischievous turn of the century girls from Picnic at Hanging Rock a recording studio in 1968.

One of my favorite films ever:
Picnic at Hanging Rock (1975)
Directed by Peter Weir
