Okay, so it's a Genesis P-Orridge interview fest. Something new always surprises me in his interviews, and not just a surprise like a full Fresh Pot coffee card found in an old coat, but a full-on mind-blown revelatory-style surprise.
The above Dangerous Minds interview is sweet and sad/beautiful, but then you discover he probably spent most of the 90s in a deep, deep K-Hole (for psychick research, of course). Which is pretty damn out. The old Infinity Factory interview from pre-YouTube internet TV station Psuedo, was what began my thinking about music/sound and perception and consciousness back when I was maybe 15, 16. I watched it again to get some new ideas brewing for Operative, which is unashamedly based on concepts sketched out by PTV and TG.
Both interviews are with Richard Metzger, who [co-]founded the Disinfo.com website and later publishing firm.

With Operative, I always feel like I'm chasing the Oregon Painting Society artistically, but am just about a hundred steps behind. The performance/installation group includes some of the visual artists I admire most in town and their work touches on some of top topics: New Age deconstruction, Motown, 90s "occulture", Terrence McKenna, stand-up comedy, Masonic conspiracies, Lynch, and that nebulous genre of movement-and-multimedia art fusion. They are my favoritist in town and, apparently, the PDX arts world doesn't think they're too shabby, neither.
True to the creepy, Suspiria-esqe nature of their workings, I was hit by a car while riding my bike after their Devil's Night rite (see first two photos), just a few months ago. I emerged almost entirely unscathed. What does the spirit-world want me to know?
