You didn’t think too deeply about this did you? Of course not. If you were prone to thinking deeply about things… you probably wouldn’t be a Feminist, now would you?
I’m screaming “THAT’S THE POINT THAT’S LITERALLY THE POINT YOU JUST MADE THE EXACT POINT” at my computer screen right now.
I created this image for a friend’s show about Julia Pastrana which will be at The Brick in Williamsburg this June.
If you would like to read about her interesting and tragic show biz career (which extended far after her death) please take a look at Trav S.D.’s excellent blog post.
Amazing image from Caviglia’s Cabinet of Curiosities for my upcoming production of The True History of the Tragic Life and Triumphant Death of Julia Pastrana, the Ugliest Woman in the World.
I could not love it more.
Stop thinking about art works as objects, and start thinking about them as triggers for experiences. (Roy Ascott’s phrase.) That solves a lot of problems: we don’t have to argue whether photographs are art, or whether performances are art, or whether Carl Andre’s bricks or Andrew Serranos’s piss or Little Richard’s ‘Long Tall Sally’ are art, because we say, ‘Art is something that happens, a process, not a quality, and all sorts of things can make it happen.’ … [W]hat makes a work of art ‘good’ for you is not something that is already ‘inside’ it, but something that happens inside you — so the value of the work lies in the degree to which it can help you have the kind of experience that you call art.

IS IT FRIDAY YET?
Solider on, my fellow 9-5iver playwrights.
When I was a kid, you know I immigrated to the States in 1978, and I’m six years old and watching TV and I didn’t see any Asians on television. And you turn on Star Trek and there’s this Asian guy not chopping anybody up. He’s honorable, a helmsman of a spaceship, and it was a big, big deal for me to see that and have a role model.

When we have a queen who is a lesbian and she marries another lady and then decides she would like to have a child and someone donates sperm and she gives birth to a child, is that child heir to the throne?
Former Conservative Party chairman/disgruntled old person Norman Tebbit, speaking in opposition to the British marriage equality bill.
Artificially inseminated lesbian queen. Band name. Called it.
Yes. That child is the heir. Why wouldn’t he be? He was born of a fucking Queen.
