It just was insane I have all these feelings of immense fucking happiness and gratitude and love and euphoria and I don’t know where to put them is there an answer to that?
This is deerhoof, because I was trying to figure out how to show a person on the internet that you hope that things end up okay & are thinking about them.
It was moving, confronting, and intense, interspersed with hilarious. It was real and raw and it made me uncomfortable and it also made me laugh. It said things, important things that I hadn’t heard or thought before, and it said them in a way which you didn’t just hear but you felt. The audience was completely enraptured. It wasn’t wanky and it was self aware and biting and it was so fucking good. It is a one man show by Scott Wings and I think it is one of the best and most important pieces of theatre I have ever seen.

And ‘it’ is TINA! Woooh! I have never fully exploited all of the fabulous opportunities This Is Not Art festival presents, and this year is the time to start. I am determined to print off a bunch of copies of at least one zine by sunday for the zine fair. I had lemon crumble and icecream with Em and Jenny after a brief stint at the windy, sunny beach. We drove around quite a bit and got lost quite a bit and generally celebrated Em’s ability to drive. This morning the tent was clanking and wooshing in the wind with the canvas trying to escape and ropes hitting poles. I sat on the top of the seats-ramp and watched the whole thing, alone until people came to pack the seats onto a truck. The sun coming in made the sides look orange and turquoise and it was just gorgeous. We have such a marvelous tent!
Tomorrow I am going to sleep in, go and see a movie with good friends, sort out my costume, apply for uni with mum, and then go to the tent and do the rehearsal.
I lay on and stood on a bed of nails yesterday, which was cool, and Caleb is coming back on Sunday, which is also cool, and we had pizza for dinner nd bought Michael lots of cool things from IGA.
