everybody's a little bit racist

I've been so damn tired every night, shit, there's no way I was going to update a blog.

But that doesn't mean I haven't wanted to.

This past weekend P's mom was in town, and P said, "I want you to show mama a good time!"

So we sure as hell tried. We started out on Saturday by going to see Taylor Mac's latest creation at PS 122. Ever since I saw Taylor back at Galapagos for a few brief minutes, I've been taken with his look, his music, his whole image and art. Well, this also didn't disappoint. The story of a hermaphrodite sea creature named Olokun, good ole Taylor was out there nekkid as nothing, painted green with duct tape taping his weiner between his legs. Was I wondering what P's mama was thinking? Oh, of course, especially with all the simulations of sex on the stage and uninhibited sexplay. But she loved it, enjoying the talking titties (two huge "puppet breasts" that were employed in one of the musical numbers) and Dirty Martini, the burlesque performer, as Yemaya (the sea goddess from Santeria, an Afro-Cuban spiritual belief system).

Now that was a Saturday night!

Sunday we took off for MoMa and then saw Avenue Q: Yay! More puppets!!

Since then I've just been running around figuring out my new responsibilities as Managing Editor at the Press. Sorry for neglecting everyone. I'm sure I'll heave this heavy shell I'm lumbering under off somewhere so that I can once again be social and friendly and fun. I hope.

This sounds like a Scissor Sisters song!

Did you give her cheap champagne?
