Virgo 26° (September 17)
I need to get a jump on promoting Martha Graham Cracker show. That will be major priority. I’m going to do a minimum of house work today and get my groove on. But I do want to get the entire place in order so I don’t have to do much tomorrow but chill and get through all the papers on my desk and start to deconstruct the process of the sample chapter which is our next greatest feat to accomplish. I have such trepidation about Oysterfest in a sense but I will end up going through with it as an alternative plan did not materialize. My throat hurts. I am limping (in advance). I am going to speeding this along today. I really am getting super organized in the aftermath of Afterglow. I’ve put my press feelers out to whomever will listen about the series this year, something I have to optimize in the coming weeks. I’m going to bold my to-dos one being put together list of possible corporations I can contact about what i do; look for money to fund the moveable festival concept and work all the angles. Speaking of which I needed to get this into works.
So as I said Mass MoCA never so much as got back to me all summer—they are so irresponsible and so far up their own holes it is not to be believed. They obviously do not value artists who aren’t Annie Lennox or whatever famous asses they are all about kissing. So fuck them. I’m sorry for their spinning our wheels. That awful women there was supposed to get back to me “next week” with the deal we spent hours discussing. This after a year and a half of making dates to speak and not showing up. She is pure evil that one. Sorry you had to move heaven and earth to make all of yourselves available Labor Day weekend. It was six weeks nearly when I wrote to her: how do you sleep at night. Karma is a bitch and she’ll get hers. No need to give it another thought. I feel bad for folks who do stuff like this I really do. And she’s a freaking lawyer.
I have reached back out to NB because I still feel VERY strongly about the intersectionality of an evolved version of Gravitational Fool as a theatrical experience with more grass roots connection to LGBTQ community and organization (like Fenway Health, etc) which is right there at [redacted]. I truly believe this could be a model for touring the piece to places where we can bottle that intersectionality and see you have fun touring the piece whilst also having it be taken up by LGBTQ activists/organizations wherever it might play. There might be some dramaturgical elements (which we began discussing) to add or amp to make that connection all the stronger. But I don’t think GF has had it’s glory days as of yet.
I really hope N will take a leap and let us do this because I feel, both in terms of the Fenway geography, but also the fact that Boston is your home city where we can really garner a lot of press and activate the community there to come and see this. When I think about how many times PA has performed LLL (or any of her pieces) the lessons here are that a piece need not have a shelf life AND/BECAUSE it can keep evolving and changing and mostly just deepening.
If you speak with N hit her over the head with why this would be such a great idea for them and such a boon to you and band. We need this particular bottling of theater and community and press about it so we can lead with the importance, social and artistic, of this piece!!
To view the original Sabian Symbol themed 2015 Cosmic Blague corresponding to this day: Flashback! The degree pointof the Sabian Symbol will be one degree higher than the one listed for today. The Blague portrays the starting degree of for this day ( 0°, for instance), as I typically post in the morning, while the Sabian number corresponds to the end point (1°) of that same 0°-1° period. There are 360 degrees spread over 365 or 6 days per year—so they near but not exactly correlate.
Typos happen. I don’t have a proofreader. And I like to just write, post and go!
