I went to the Voodoo Trash Dolls last night. Theres talk of possibly working at one of their gigs in the future. So I was 'catching' the vibe and imagining what i could do. They all appear larger than life onstage. The work IS quite Trashy which is cool. THe audience are the drinking and smoking crowd, easily pleased if its sexy, dark and raunchy. Seeing the show really made me determined to get my act togeather, to start getting costumes and to start rehersing!

Last night i traveled deep into Cyberspace. It really IS a vast and interesting space. I tend to live in such a small part of it,only going places that are familiar.
This post goes out to all those living in their own little religious hovel of self indulgment...for 'Gods' sake open your mind and your heart!

The problem with Life Modeling is that in the breaks, one is tempted by sweet gumboot tea and Tim Tams. I was falling asleep today, a portrait class, {- go kitchen ,make tea, tim tam, wake myself up}i was (not really) being painted by elderly people who spent much of the time chatting and getting their oil paints mixed up.
Last night i was eating tim tams,sipping tea and reading comics surrounded by enthusiastic St Kilda artists . In between these breaks there is the actual stillness work, which is.... eternal..., to say the least. Staring at the wall, or floor...for ages and ages and ages.

Good food and hard excersize makes the dopamine flow. Its as simple as that. I am my own drug dealer. I was flying home this evening!
Get a taste of the action HERE.

 

The famous artist Daniel Mounsey with famous fantasy Aurthor Rebecca Hayden. On the Bridge, Melbourne 2006. Friends, conspiritors, trippers.
I went to 'Liquid Architecture' last night which was most inspiring for the ears and a good workout for audio wave surfing. Hard, subtle and very cool. Experimental sound manipulation at its best.

I went to Burlesque gig last night. It was great to see the girls, but anoying to be squashed amongst lots of other people to watch it. Its a grey sunday, and im in my 'rest' mode. I came up with this idea that life is in fact a giant ps2 game, where one can move about , interact with other players, score points, take potions, practice kung fu , fight monsters and eventually, loose.

I was forced to take a break today, bit of a headache and weird stomock. Think it was a bug because my flatmate got it too.Anyway, it was soon cured with water and a swim and a steam. Todays thoughts, inspired by my friend Xero
who is going to live in Japan
soon . It got me thinking...whats the hardest and most crazy thing i could do with my performance? do my 'Doll' dance, wired up to Stelarcian gadgets while breathing through snorkel and mask in dark mysterious caverns under the Mega city of Toyko!!!...mmmm... A plan to unfold?

I just watched a tv doco about the artist Gunther von Hagen which was most fasinating, if not a little strange. Today i had a life modeling job where i lay on a bed like a dead christ for and hour and a half, lying in wait for the reserection. After a while, even the most easy pose gets uncomfortable. The artists were practicing fore-shortning.
I think id perfer MY body to be put in the compost. Giving a bit of juice to millions {or billions} of other enthuziastic organisms trying to make it in the big wide world.
God bless them.

I had a spring in my step today for 2x Kung Fu . I guess all my hard training is paying off. Maybe the Malt Syrup i got a couble of days ago is kicking in . Maybe its more of this Dragon and less of THIS dragon!.

I ate a whole chicken last night . I couldnt help myself. I felt a strong CroMagnan urge to devour a bird. Its now assimilating within my own flesh. I thought about her as i was eating. She was free range ,so probly had a satisfactory life. I felt sorry for her final hour and grusome death. This post goes out to the spirit of that bird , now nesting within.

Nothing much to blog except more Kung fu! Im starting to make some progress. Its hard for me learning 'form' when my Butoh training is formless on purpose. Its taken my training to a new level though so i feel all Qi'ed up and ready to go!
Im guess im sitting back over winter as far as performance is concerned. I figer ill do lots of training and more together, sharper performance rather than lots of little half assed acts. But right now all i need is a GIRL and ill feel whole. Heres how the amazing South Australian Lyre Bird gets his chicks.
