Month: November 2018 (page 1 of 4)

Names, Sweetie

Sagittarius 3° (November 26)

It is Monday and just over three weeks to our upcoming show. I think we are in good shape considering everything else we’re juggling. Today might be another day of shifting sands where, if I don’t do first things first, they really won’t get done. I know I can be way more functional than even I’m being. Honestly, and people must relate to this, I vacillate between thinking myself to be a prolific and functional producer of works, goods, services and ideas; othertimes I feel like I’m just treading water. I never consider myself a procrastinator. I am by definition a productonator, I get a lot of necessary things done (that would need to get done in any case) as a form of procrastinator from the any one thing I “should” be doing at any given time. I also just plain old spook myself getting started on things; I bust out with this feeling that I’m not ready to do it or something. When it’s best to just rip off the bandaid.

I’m looking at some stuff on my desk, various scribblings, that I should record lest I lose them for life. Lussier Clark Rudin Lecesne Gavin Pete Arsenault Tobin Caddell Mimi Peter Belsky Tranie Joshua Greene Mimi Caryn Roman Renata Nathalie Keller Kohlhaas Ruby Tyler Roland Performers, Birthday List, Clever ways to get books and tickets cooking. Lance Zecca Clever list O’ Comps purchased tickets. Trey Heather Randall Bartlett O’Brian Both Brendas Romy Phil People in NYC Nancy Shayne Amy Phoebe Lishansky Forke Dax Fourrat Gene James Bagluth Pesakoff Trip’s List Welcome Shoppe Catland Nasser Sammy River Cote Joshua Fried Fraioli Adam Nelson Brooklyn crowd. Parker, Frankie, Bretty, Nicky, Sean, Clients Book fans Edsel Tatiana Katz Ira Oberon Steve Ross and some high gloss. Tyrnauer Styles section. Maura, Schecter, Fancy, actors Tia Wu. I would love to own a nightclub—it is actually one of my dreams. It could actually be one of those older life goals that I’m now doing everything for. To own a nightclub and sleep all day until someone drags you out of bed to exercise your carcass, or to fall into a heated pool like the one at One Aldwych in London, my favorite pool experience of them all. I would model it on the Napoleon, in any case, with two sound-proofed cabaret rooms, ideally. But surely one. I have to play big in Boston and kanoodle with some money guys. This will dovetail with my fundraising in any case.

Back home here in reality: I have to get back into the hot room. Aries man is most cut and dry. Aries woman is most cut and run. Aries are realists. Combine these new notes with the musings notes (chapter openers) for fodder for Next drafts and weed out repeats from Sext. Woman biggest brat. All about realness. Next could be in second person. 24 Slim volumes. Once you’ve done the larger chunks of people, then you can start the process of profiling who will be doing what. Memo on the other two-thirds investment. “Going back to go forward” not sure why that came up.

Legalize It

Sagittarius 2° (November 25)

 

There are always going to be would-be anxieties that one can quell by deferring even the slightest catastrophizing, something I wonder if the British spell with an S. Case in point traveling to NYC to directly attend a rehearsal. It will be done, and can be done. If you just allow for some air. Most things work out. And also I will be able to finish the draft of this show today by 1PM rehearsal and I’ll go over my checklist of things as I go through. And keep all other relevant notes handy as well. Some days you just have to be more the managing editor than writer-creator; the show isn’t that earth-shatteringly important. It jus is what it is. But what it is can be much more fun, far more stressless and seamless an affair. At least that’s what I’m going for. I’m bringing the elegance back on many levels this holiday season. Join me won’t you?

It starts today with the writing of the second half of the show. I have to remind myself that I’m not actually going to say pretty much anything that is written on the page, or all of it, or some combination of elements on the page with new stuff flying into my brain. This is the first step toward increased autonomy in the performance. The show is about your own enlightenment which, hey, we might as well give it a shot, right. I want to be very clear about stuff. And succinct; and I want, especially, to speak with authority. I am not a kook. There are no kooks here.

There is a new study out about cannibis and cognitive development and how young people should not, repeat should not, do weed to early as it might actually wire them for addiction as THC is addictive. I was how old? Fourteen when I first tried the stuff. That is in fact young but oh well too late now. I never truly enjoy smoking weed with other people anyway. It seems so funny now that it is legal. I still don’t know how one would go about buying any. The whole thing seems kind of mysterious that way I suppose. Funny how when something like this occurs, by the time it does I mean, you really don’t care. One of these days I suppose I’ll try an edible. I haven’t had the opportunity yet so far.

I’ve been wanting for ages to Google: whatever happened to Percy Weasley. Apparently the answer is nothing. He’s been around the whole while. Woops. Oh well. What am I supposed to do about the fact I don’t know everything about you know who. At some point I will circle back and read all the books again. I’m waiting for second childhood to do so. I want to do a lot more reading overall in any case that’s for certain. I stare at all the books in this house and thing sheesh I’ll never get through them all. And I won’t. It’s very possible I’m not living life correctly. I want to limit the number of mistakes moving forward I can tell you that. I am grateful for the removal of obstacles to my good these days. I do believe I am doing the heavy lifting.

If I Were A Twee

Sagittarius 1° (November 24)

 

I seem to have slept on my face. I have a vague recollection of burying it into the corner of the sofa. I have been falling asleep like a stone these last several days, a welcome relief to the hard-pounding insomnia one has sometime suffered. But the inside of mouth was actually numb, a result, I surmise, of nerves being temporarily messed by a razor thin line my lower teeth had cut perfectly horizontally inside and under my lower lip. Later it will twitch uncontrollably. This day feels like a loveable mess, almost a personification of one you might assign that label. It was an Oscar rather than a Felix day. I didn’t so much do a lot as get very organized despite the scene set for certain sloth and the laziness with which my character actually participated. I have been in a sort of funny failure to launch mode meets extinction burst of premature holiday living. That is a bud which must be nipped. It is all too easy to fall into a “well it’s the holidays” head; statistics show people eat way to much between Thanksgiving and New Year’s; I for one do not intend to fall into that kind of culinary trap. Luckily, the kitchen isn’t the focus here and I haven’t been my typical foody self for quite a while. I mean I still cook gorgeous meals but I don’t go overboard like a once did. It’s just the two of us so much of the time I need to keep things simple. When we’re back in more a city environment I’ll be entertaining more and that is always fun but also creatively inspiriting on the cooking front.

One of the major nuts I want to crack this coming year is that of our traditional publishing life. I have a thousand ideas regarding self-publishing; but separate from that I need to work some magic with some larger company with which I can make a sexy deal. That is definitely high on the priority list. I do need to limit what is on my to-do list; and really focus on certain things, exclusively, during various monthly periods. It is indeed all possible and I look forward to further forays into all the projects I’ve started over the years, taking a more executive approach to them all. It really must be the year of execution, a word with such an unfortunate double entendre. Perhaps exeuction is a Capricorn word. Only people who know that I think in twelve categories knows what that means.

Well it seems very likely that I will catch up to myself in due course today. Indeed if I can keep up writing like this —sorry to wax meta—I could be in good stead starting tomorrow and then, perhaps, for all time. The point is that I have zero time to waste. I neglected to mention that we bought a Christmas tree the day after Thanksgiving. How normalized are we? It fit perfectly in the dining room and we have just put lights on it. Something about a tree with just lights can seem more beautiful than with the full ornaments package. I’m not sure I’m ready to go there to be honest. The purity is the thing. And right now purity comes in the form of little white lights. Although they do look kind of greenish to be honest. Oh well, I figure it will help us in the creation of the show this year. Speaking of which I’ve got to write a press release and get the show talked about places!

Peaceful Slumber

Sagittarius 0° (November 23)

 

I think what I’m most excited for is the curated aspect of it all. I am so looking forward to having a shop, but in the meantime enjoying elements of that being put into place by way of decor, design of the Boston salon. In this vision I’m seeing two floors of a brownstone and getting buzzed in. I would love my own freestanding house but that won’t be terribly affordable. It’s all about having the scaleable business; and I have a number of ideas on that score in any case. It involves taking stock of rare and out of print books on the subjects that we explore. An alchemist shop of sort. Bringing back the notion of crystals. Also we could be doing something with herbs? These things can be represented in small ways. None of this should actually happen but for in the most subltlest of ways. Have to go to the gift show and to partner on projects with other artisans out there. I think that will be the brilliance of it all—what partnerships we can enter into that are lucrative but unconstraining. I will get through this week and then reconvene with both the Tims.

It’s probably a good time to create another timeline of sorts. There are elements of business that seriously need to happen in the short term; and those which will happen closer to spring. The aesthetics of things need to be worked out; and I’m going to actually defer much of this to La S because she really should lead in this arena while I work on the creative work of the business itself and how many inroads can be made from the purely creative entrepreneurial side of things. I feel it’s time that I know what I want. Anyway it’s already (already) happening. And I don’t know why, when I’m this close, I feel such a divide between the present reality and the one I’m so soon to be living. It is strange how this success stuff works. I don’t think any amount of money, for instance, can really change one’s standing nor one’s sense of abundance. If anything I am strangely fearful and that is the one thing I cannot afford. So I have to immediately redirect that energy and to funnel it into specific big hit items. Plus immediately diversifying such that moolah is made all other ways. That to me would be supremely important.

More than anything it is about hiring the best team right out of the gate. I’m not convinced that R+R wouldn’t be the perfect people to partner with on projects; we do not have to take them on as employees, but as consultants who can help with merchandising and promotion and production even. I have a good instinct about this I feel. And that should really be what I focus on: The big picture. Though I dare say that today, just thinking about it, I feel exhausted. I shouldn’t. I should be able to soldier on, through; but I have been having these energy dips of late and I have been sleeping like a crazy person, pretty much able to always fall back, which I haven’t really been able to do for years. Hey I’m not questioning it.

Thanks Alot

Scorpio 29° (November 22)

 

This should be a different kind of Thanksgiving. We will eat in a restaurant which I’m all for. We will overspend but it will be worth it. We don’t actually host these holidays but we always end up doing the lion share of the work while others either don’t help at all or become so overwhelmed by the prospect of cooking a bird or making a gravy that they have to take to their sick beds. I exaggerate (sorta). It really is terribly silly. Anyway we went to this sort of pricey suburban “industrial style” restaurant called the Bankcroft which is across from the residences where folks from the Little Women remake are staying. Coincidentally conversation turned to fact that the film’s director is staying in one of the houses in Corcord that the parents of a classmate of G.’s owns Emma Watson is on that film and you know we love us some Emma Watson. One of the associate producers at A.R.T. I’ve been working with for four years on our Afterglow at Oberon series is called Emma Watts. Not for nothing—as people used to say in the eighties in NYC. I had a steak not turkey and a chocolaty dessert. I unfortunately revisited the clam dip with Fritos I had sampled at the house prior to Thanksgiving lunch again upon returning. That has been the gift that keeps on giving. And of course wine and pumpkin pie and coffee. With all that it still is bread that is the true debunker of my dietary prowess. Sometimes it’s not the what it’s all about dazzling them with the how.

Or at least that’s what I’d like to tell myself. I should like to be thankful this year for the great Gift I believe is coming my way and for the ability to make some upgrades to lifestyle while working really hard to make the Project work with some back up irons on the fire for extra support. We worked out our rehearsal plan and now I have to get on the promotion. But, to be fair, I’m still working out some kinks on the script and these things can’r really be rushed, capisce. I’m just going to give over to the haze of these days because I can’t think of any better way of negotiating them. I am silently sneaking in. I will put out about ten asks for festival in January and then again in February and then I’ll get contracts in and booked. This way I can get all the graphics up and running. I’m not sure what my color scheme will be this year but I’m hoping maybe we can revisit navy and do like a navy greige red kind of 18th century seabattle painting sort of release as color story. The return of the revolutionary war. Art is a Revolutionary War. Something like that. I must be the best ambassador for all that sort of thing which again: Reduction.

Our first house was build in 1805 and I’m kind of fixated on that year. I don’t know why. It’s the Battle of Trafalgar, the end of the use of the French (Julian) calendar. And the year Lewis and Clark get to where they want to go. I think about what might have been going on here. What magic the world still had left to reveal and what unfolding of story might occur in the wonder of all these thoughts. Turkeys in Harvard Square.

Promotional Pisces

Scorpio 28° (November 21)

 

I was just rooting around Sextrology world and realized I could use new pictures on the pages pertaining to that tome. Maybe some fun old shots, and then we can spice with some new ones. I also have to now start collecting everything Glow Festival into one place as that will be one of my holiday projects. I woke up to a nose out of joint email from JLB. As an oversensitive person myself I’m naturally empathetic when someone feels hurt; of course I didn’t do anything wrong but I sort of got some stuff thrown at me; again, which is fine. I don’t want to be the cause of anyone’s upset. Ever. I make it a point not to be. You know in this business I’ve had to become a helluva lot better (at everything in general) otherwise I’m a hypocrite doing what I do. I have my moments, still, of course; those of which I’m not proud. It always comes down to intentions. I surely didn’t want to make anyone feel “a way.”…

Some thoughts on the Pisces:

Oh man this is always the hardest bit. The Pisces

Jury Duty

Scorpio 27° (November 20)

 

Jury duty today and I decided to do it up. Got a lot of writing done. The judge came out and lectured a bit about having a bad attitude about doing this—I kept thinking he read my “questionaire” where I was a bit cranky. Oh, well. Duty served and speech free. Trum has no idea that he’s in Paradise (lost) California. Anyway I got a lot of writing in the two and one half hours there. I flash back to Carmel and to having a lovely luncheon; it was the same day I had a massive headache and I had to borrow an aspirin from a gallery owner who was very nice. This was our most recent trip I think. I’d just bought my Comme jacket with the red lining and sweat profusely in it walking to park and museum and back again; but it was fine; since I’ve been in torrential rain in it and the fabric never seems to get wet, or it immediately dries. (ha, ha: looks like Dries) Anyway…

Some notes on Aquarius:

Uranus is radical energy in creates new orders, new universes of experience, pointing at the veils of other dimensions. Aquarian people are the XMen of the Zodiac. The Greek cupbearer goddess is Hebe, meaning Youth, thus renewal, and Zeus’ boytoy Ganymede meaning to rejoice. Aquarius is the dipsensation of Joy and Renewal. Leo provides the warmth, gives life, to all she does. Aquarius is a distant star fixed air. Immutable Facts. Joy. Aquarian people go from Joy to Despair and back again.

John the Baptist, whose own demise forshadowed Jesuses. Fixed air. Conviction. Dying for them. A star, not the newly born burst of Aries The obvious link to the song is about being forsaken, out on a limb or in this case a cross, alone. Fixed air, the Star. Not the supernova birth of a star that Aries; but a dead and distant beacon calling across the expanse of time and space. Ruled by Uranus, named for the god of the Universe, the energy is radical divurgent, eccentric “out there”—looking for some connective tissue here and it’s not forthcoming—Aquarian people know what it’s like to be a lone voice in the wilderness, how one might describe wild man John the Baptist who stuck his neck out and whose demise forshadowed Jesuses. Declared a radical, revelation, a turn around. The future is multi-dimensional, like Jack Jack. New Utopias.

if not deviant unexpected, sweeping, revolutionary, revelationary. And evolutionary. It is the quirk the eccentricity the mutation from the norm, now, which becomes the mainstay of the future. It is the darkest dark and the dawn itself. The eleventh hour, the elventh sign and house which rules progress, technology, innovation, In the Jesus story things are about to change. He knows he is reaching the end and pleads his feelings of forsakeness

Capricorn Church

Scorpio 26° (November 19)

 

Capricorn is really all about atonement. I use I don’t waste I save! In every sense of the word. At winter solstice a goat, the scape goat, was loaded with baggage representing sin and sent forth from the village. Capricorn people know about being Scapegoated…

Arrestation. What do you do with the power you amass. Containment. Incarceration. Penance. Resource. Convention. Faith awaitng Fate. Saturn, the dpeosed king whom Jupiter usurped. The golden age, the past paradise lost. Tradition that which must be preserved, like strawberries, put up, stored, vs. what to put out to pasture if not imprison or otherwise contain. The energy of renunciation. Jesus is ultimately arrested. Preservation. Renunciation. Resource. Refinement. Retirement. retreat. Reprieve. Retribution. On a pilgrimage, taking up ones begging bowl, if not the. Heirophant coming up against Church. If things are Church they are established. They are law. Sanctuary and Imprisonment.

Saturn deposed king whom Jupiter put down. He ruled the golden-age, a utopia, pointing to traditions that must be preserved. Cap people know what it’s like tobear the mountainous weight of the world upon them but the upshot is the reprieve that provides. Capricorn is all about Faith and Forgiveness. On the flipside they…hold grudges?

Check Calendar

Scorpio 25° (November 18)

 

Mulling over Sagittarius for the show. Mutable-Fire lightning. The biggest Planet Jupiter named for the lightning god, the chief god. Large and In charge. More more more. 56-63 Height of powers. Life is a banquet. But it all too esily can become a bacchanale. Jupiter power of expansion; shadow side is being out of control. Dionysus, the pineal gland. He is the son inheritor, the would be successor of Zeus

And of course we have the banquet scene in the Jesus story, the last supper, where he is taking a page from Dionysus’s book. Transubstantiation, turning wine into blood and bread into flesh. That’s what the Dionysian rites were all about.

P.S.

Scorpio 24° (November 17)

Still feeling rather iffy. Had a super creative talk about the biz this morning over coffee; and realizing how possible everything is when people spiritually invest in you. It truly is a wonderful thing. Went for a nice long walk in Wellfleet. Wanted to get some notes down on the intro…

More thoughts on Scorpio: 49-56 All that Libra light casts a dark and mysterious shadow a/k/a the sign of Scorpio. Fixed water ice crystals. Concentrated. Distilled down to the Microscopic, atomic, sub particular Unseen mysterious building block level of everything, the True Essence is it infinitely fathomless? Ruled by Pluto named the god of the Underworld, with his cloak of invisibility. The Underworld is also a metaphor for our own subconscious. The 8th house rules sleep, death, sex, all of which fall under the heading of regeneration. Pluto’s energy is eliptical like the phoenix forever rising from the ashes. What is seething below the surface. What subtext, scandal, seduction, subterfuge? Betrayal. Yes, here in the Jesus story there are whispers in the shadows; and the general atmosphere is becoming sick with secrets and the alienation

We have. Merger becoming a third entity. Surely on some sub particular level we are already merged. Scorpio is a human microscope seeing through artifice in search of truest nature. We Have (a secret) we are only as sick as them.
