“why are you so hot and how long have you been this way?”
maybe i was not grateful enough, maybe i needed kiev time out so i could sit and think
“i must live my life in a way so that i am the girl going to her museum opening at glamorous beautiful Garage and not girl sitting in tub at youth hostel”
we are at cafe pushkin which looks like it is 1850s but really like 1970s
russia does not like “old” or “second hand”. there are no thrift stores and no junk shops
when you ask for them, they say “why do you want old gross clothes someone else wore”
that’s aleksey from garage. he had to scramble to set this all up for us and did an amazing job and it was so much work he told me with regret that night that he had to take, how do you say it, speed to get this all done
you will have to wait for the DVD to come out to experience it though
unless you were one of the lucky thirty that were there
some of the most awesome things i have presented have been to the smallest audiences!
we must remedy that situation in moscow
jonah and kris and justin (from afar) were the best hosts and they have the nicest house and even though we were buttfaces were really nice to us. so nice!
they are getting fun surprise package in the mail
and its NOT full of empty beer bottles and spilled candle wax!
you guys remember sayre gomez right?
god what two years ago patrick and i stayed in the same room type at downtown standard and went to golden gopher with sayre , that is for the real blog nerds who remember that far back
all my dreams are coming true…so why am i so blue
i put this awesome Trenton Doyle Hancock next to nick’s because i thought he looked like a fat white southerner
there is so much more show that i inexplicably have no install photos of!!!
i must once again implore you to wait for official installs from royal t
look! there is sue in her kenny hoodie! cute!!
so jeffrey killed it! yay for jeffrey!!! im so happy it was such a success; he really deserves it, and after all the weird LA losers griping about that shitty mural, that non-issue, so stupid
the show had such great energy, even if some of the art was poo, many parts of the show are just knock out! just incredible
and it had the real “deitch spirit” to it, which i didnt even realize i had missed so much until i felt it again there
i would call it “not being afraid to embarrass yourself” and “taking chances” and “positive vibes only please”
but PUD getting MOOSHED makes me picture someone jerking someone else off with their armpit
more on this guy in a sec
this, clearly, is Fidel Castro skiing
sorry guys another out of order one
real or planned?
who i love
i gotta go nick is driving me nuts on the phone and the car is outside
the space i am in now typing this where my show will be april 22 is an old constructivist bus terminal and there is a weird thing in russia where you can’t get long leases, that you are at the mercy of the landlord who can boot you out at anytime
shit!!! and i promised myself i woudl not even hint at butts today since i made nick mad by being lame last post
ha ha i just had to google that because i was sure i must have already named a blog this
i mean surely the last time i came to russia i called my blog SPICY BUTT, right?
because SPAY SEE BUH means “thank you” but sometimes when people say it it sounds like SPICY BUTT and of course that is how i remember it
and somehow i have actually never had borscht ever until yesterday and it was crazy because borscht tastes JUST LIKE MEATBALL SOUP,,,,,, which is so weird,,,,, i guess my grandma was trying to recreate what she thought borscht tasted like? i guess borscht tasted like hot ketchup and beef balls and dill????
i almost started crying in front of all the staff with me because
why is life so crazy
ok ok enough barely started installing photos
lets “preserve the magic” shall we?
living the dream!!!! that is what jesse said and sometimes you know it just feels like that
