“For me the struggle has been between the person I am—solitary, driven, obsessed—and the person I think I’m supposed to be: a grown-up who has dinner parties and makes a good impression on in-laws. But the truth is, I’ve never made a good impression, and I hate cooking. In fact, I practically hate food because it always becomes a focal point in relationships, and just symbolizes death to me. I don’t want a partner to cook food with and get fat with and then go on diets with. I just want to sit on the floor eating cereal and listening to records.”

It just occured to me to look up my long neglected flickr account that I haven’t used since I began tumbling. Mostly Japan and Thailand photos, along w/ some rock n roll and clowning friends:

TOMORROW (weds) NIGHT! THE DIDDLER TAKES MANHATTAN!!
I’m proud to say that at 7:15pm my work will be shown in a shorts program at the immortal Anthology Film Archives in lower Manhattan for the first (and hopefully not last) time.
I hope to see you there.
Continuing w/ the ‘I’ll-only-be-hired-for-the-most-peripheral-film-industry-jobs’ theme in my life, earlier this month I took photos for a prop bondage magazine (that will probably only get 5 seconds of screen time) for ‘A Good Marriage’, the Stephen King written, Peter Askin directed picture currently in production. Here’s an extreme close up outtake that doesn’t spoil anything.
Trailer for EUROPA REPORT, the new sci-fi space picture scripted by my pal Phil Gelatt. He had to do so many tweaks and rewrites that I wouldn’t be surprised if the script still isn’t finished.
The 3rd and final photo in the “Sam at Work” series. For now.
One thing I appreciate about the Double Vision embroidery machine is its similarity to an optical printer (perhaps my ultimate artistic tool of choice), in that the technician sets the visual pattern to “go”, and then has the opportunity to sit back in a sort of hypnotic state, listening to rhythms that have become so familiar that a malfunction can be immediately recognized by ear.
