Durchnässt in urinierter Grafschaft

Nancy Pelosi invited me to the inauguration but unfortunately I won't be able to go as I don't have a goddam thing to wear, unless I pull out my impeachment gown that is still stained from last year. Thrilled that instead of an inauguration ball there will be a socially distanced Bukake Gala where Lady Gaga, Bruce Springstein along with Marilyn Manson will be the featured performers.

Having a great time on the jury for the London Short Film Festival with my fellow jurists the British/Nigerian director Ngozi Onwurah and independent Canadian First Nations programmer Jason Ryle who use to be Executive Director of Imagine NATIVE an indigenous run arts organization. Jason is Ojibwe just like my best girlfriend and longtime collaborator Glen Meadmore who originally hails from Winnipeg, Canada. My grandmother was a Choctaw raised on the reservation so there was a lot of Native American energies flowing during our Zoom Jury Meetings.

Had a sweet reunion of sorts via the phone with my dear old friend Jose Montaño. Jose is a very cultured and prolific genius. Who has worked a varied and storied career as a Production Designer for Film and Commercials. He is probably best known for his work on the REM video Losing My Religion and the Elizabeth Taylor commercials for White Diamond directed by Herb Ritts and countless other projects that you've seen and weren't aware of. Jose's father was a famous Bolivian architect and his mother a Swedish actress whose family has far reaching international activist roots. Jose now works only for social justice causes with his very talented husband Ty in the Seattle area. They actually live in one of the incredible sculptural mid century homes his father had designed. It was so great to klatch with Jose after so many years apart. Jose, the late great Mrs. Michael Glass and I were quite the triumph errant back in the day in Los Angeles causing major havoc.

A great fundraiser for an old movie palace in San Pedro, California with my old pal the great Janet Klein:
