Genesis P-O Motherfucker

Genesis Breyer P-Orridge: Thee Psychick Bible from DANGEROUS MINDS on Vimeo.

Genesis Breyer P-Orridge: Thee Psychick Bible (Part 2) from DANGEROUS MINDS on Vimeo.

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 website and later publishing firm.

"Chameleon [Leech Blend]"

got the 'I Always Say Yes' 12" a few years back and thought it would be fun to try to layer Glass Candy's acappella of their cover of "Chameleon" with Dark Day's original.

was surprised at how perfect it fit and love how it turns in to a call and response duet between Robin and Ida.

Oregon Painting Society

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?
