My new music video “Money + Power” is now live on Vimeo. This video is the first of the Alien Affirmation series.
The video has also been entered into the 2010 Vimeo Video Awards hosted by film director David Lynch. The finalists will be announced on September 10th.
Swedish experimental-pop duo, The Knife, have been around for a while but keep a VERY low profile. They avoid the press and publicity in general and rarely do interviews. I stumbled upon them while vacationing in Bangkok and have not seen or heard one peep about them in the U.S.
The Knife is Olof Dreijer and Karin Dreijer Andersson. They are based in Stockholm, Sweden and have made music together since 1999, released on their own label Rabid Records.
The Early Adapters have created the quintessential “In and Out list for 2010″ created exclusively for the Queer Super Blog eat-pray-fuck.com
The performance group delivers a scintillating breakdown of the ins and outs of modern queer culture with a special homage to Alexander Girard and Butt Magazine at the end
We all know exactly how it feels.
You just landed a starring role in a major motion picture and you’re in the back seat of a 1954 limosine with your personal assitant rehearsing your lines for tomorrows film shoot. You just bought a new home in the Hollywood Hills and everyone loves you. You’re at the top of your game.
Suddenly, you look out of the car window and realize that you are not completely happy. Something is missing. Something has gone array but you can’t quite put your finger on it. A strange sense of existential anxiety fills your body as you watch a group of children playing out in the sun.
Was it too much coffee?
Is my life really just a shadow of what it was meant to be?
Then you realize what it is. You forgot to pick up your gown for the awards ceremony that night..ahh, relief.
Driver, turn left please.

In my dream I travel the continent in a refurbished 1965 VW van retro-fitted with a solar/hydrogen converted engine. It runs on water and sunlight. Every morning I wake up, practice yoga and do some creative work on my solar powered laptop. I hear a rustling coming from the back of the van. It’s my lover. He complains that he is cold and demands that I come back to bed to keep him warm. Everything is simple. We stay in bed all day. If you want to sponsor my dream please contact me

I remember the day that I was introduced to Patti Smith’s music. I was 15 years old, living in Danville CA and listening mostly to Bowie, Kraftwerk, Eno and Roxy Music. My best friend Erich Brogger called me and said “Myke, there’s something that I want you to hear. Can I come over now?” Erich came over and put Horses on my Marantz turnatable. The house was empty so we turned it up REAL LOUD. My thought today is exactly the same as when I first heard these songs..Jesus Fucking Christ. She’s a genius…

Patti just released her new book “Just Kids” which offers a never-before-seen glimpse of her remarkable relationship with photographer Robert Mapplethorpe and their lives as androgynous bohemians in the transitional days of New York City and the Chelsea Hotel in the late sixties and seventies. Patti writes with a kind of honestly and authenticity about friendship that serves as a reminder that all of the most beautiful things in life are transient and can never be owned.
I find the book particularly fascinating because of the focus on their lives before either of them had any idea what kind of fame and success lay ahead. Really a reminder that when we live fully in the present and pratice creative devotion, anything can happen.
Just to say, I don’t read much, and it takes a lot to get me to commit to any book, but this held my interest from beginning to end and I’m giving it:

A quote from one of Patti’s idols, Arthur Rimbaud
“I want to be a poet, and I’m working to make myself a visionary: you won’t understand at all, and I can hardly explain it to you. . . . The sufferings are enormous, but you have to be strong, to be born a poet, and I’ve realized I’m a poet.”
Arthur Rimbaud, May 1871, at the age of 16
