LET ME CALL YOU SWEETHEART?

718_liberace.jpgDear Sweetheart, a.k.a, mo, Lately the world seems tainted with an unhealthy emotional hue. Something crazy has gone retrograde it seems. I have heard from millions of people that everyone they know, selves included, have been struggling with the daily emonuclear fallout and it is grinding them down. Me too. But today Liberace spoke to me from an album cover on a table in a hallway, in this world and said, "Let me call you sweetheart" and it hit me. Maybe if we all call each other sweetheart we can break through the nozone layer of gloom. Why me? Why Liberace?

Well, today I had some lovely and well-behaved studio visitors, Frank, Gregory and Tamsen, and as I was showing them around the building we came upon a stack of albums for sale for a dollar on the 2nd floor. I had last picked up that so special Herb Alpert whipped cream album in this spot but on this trip I saw Liberace! My lovely, well-behaved visitors led me to the album as I never go upstairs otherwise. So I grabbed it and put my dollar in the coffe can. It wasn't quite like when I discovered Benign Girl but I did immediately feel Liberace tugging at my sleeve with an important message and there it was, the name of the album.

My second thought was that Liberace would be the perfect companion for Benign Girl, in a twisted way. He could be her fabulous gay shopping buddy. They could go to the mall and get makeovers and he could advise her on her dressage, "Think more flash and less tramp, honey, Maybe try a different expression or untilt your head", and the void in her personality would run over with his overabundance of self. It was so perfect that it called to mind my favorite spam email subject line this week, "Surplus Predestination". (Although, "Stop Puglifying" was rather brilliant and is also apropos here).

Obsessing over such things seems so much more sane than the current state of the world. It makes me want to call everyone, "Sweetheart". I guess I can if I want. What if everyone called everyone they met today, "Sweetheart". Could we change the mood? Change the world? I am going to try. it.

IT GETS BETTER
I have started a circle of imaginary supersweetheartpals.
718_covers.jpg Then I went looking for my new album cover art online and I found "The 100 worst album covers ever".


So I chose a few friends for Liberace and Benin Girl.
Now there's Fabio, Tammy Faye Baker (channelling Lara from Dr. Zhivago), Paddy Roberts (he looks like hilarity ensuing ad infinitum) and the sour cream copycat ladies! (So I have come full circle to my Herb Alpert Whipped Cream album cover).

They could all live together in the Barbie Townhouse (unless there's a Benign Girl Townhouse) and be a big happy reality show.

And I must disclose that I am actually quite familiar with the specifics of the Liberace wardrobe. He was blinged out long before Mr T. (who announced this week after seeing the devastation of Katrina that he will no longer wear bling) to a staggering degree.

On a trip years ago to Las Vegas with my grandmother I was dragged to the Liberace Museum.
It looks kinda like a one story funeral home/chapel-like thing in a strip mall on a big road of other strip malls. Parking is free.

After an hour of silently (Lips latched tightly) looking over the displays with their placards like, "this cape has 72,000 rubies, 58 million swarovski crystals, 75 gazillion emeralds etc and weighed 58 pounds and is lined with mink and matches this mink lined car that he drove on stage for this show which also matches the candelabra which is made of diamonds and melted down ditzy heiresses and so on" my grandmother suddenly shrieked (she was very hard of hearing), "I DON'T CARE WHAT YOU SAY. HE WAS NOT GAY", causing all the other little old lady fans to glare at me as though I had actually blasphemed the man in his holy place.

Later she did admit to finding the outfits a bit, "swishy". He was a real sweetheart.

718_maash CULTURAL FACILITIES FUND BECOMES LAW!

Senate Votes 33-3 to Override Governor's Veto!

The Massachusetts Cultural Facilities Fund is now law.

The Senate voted 33-3 to join the House in overriding Governor Romney’s veto of $13 million for the Massachusetts Cultural Facilities Fund. The Campaign for Cultural Facilities thanks Senate President Robert Travaglini, Chairwoman Therese Murray, Chairman Jack Hart and Senator Stan Rosenberg for delivering a resounding message of support for cultural tourism and for the arts, sciences and humanities in Massachusetts.

This is a huge victory for the cultural community— not only to override the veto in both chambers but to achieve clear bipartisan support.

The work on the program guidelines will begin immediately and we will keep you informed on how and when applications will be accepted.

Thanks to all who advocated on behalf of the most significant cultural facilities funding program in the nation.

Sincerely,

WINDOWS PROJECT IN EASTHAMPTON
Open to all. really.
718_windowsproject.jpg From Twyla Reardon-

Hello Sweethearts (I added that),
I hope everyone is having a fun and wonderful summer. On behalf of the EasthamptonCulturalCouncil and WorkingPromisingArtists (WPA) I would like to officially invite you to participate in this year's WindowsProject. The dates for the show and special events are September15 thru October 3. You will find more details in the Artists' Submission Package, just contact us at windowsproject@gmail.com and we will send it forward.

The submission deadline has been extended to August 11, 2006. We intend to have parties, artists talks, visiting artists, and a smattering of any other special events you can think of.

Please forward this anouncement to artists you feel would be interested in participating in this years WindowsProject.

Artists' Prospectus
Easthampton WindowsProject 2006 "Celebrating This Old Mill Town As An Art City " Easthampton, Massachusetts~nestled at the base of majestic Mt Tom~ is one of those former mill towns valued by a wide variety of artists. For the 4th year we are setting the stage for a community expression of creativity. We welcome your art – all art.

WorkingPromisingArtists in collaboration with the EasthamptonCulturalCouncil seeks proposals from creative individuals and groups. Over the last three years WindowsProject has celebrated the creative spirit with works which have included paintings, sculptures, photography, drawings, and fine crafts from local artists. This year we are welcoming anyone/groups working in visual arts (traditional & experimental), sound, installation, new media and interactive arts for WindowsProject2006.

We are seeking work for storefront windows, appropriate private/public interiors, building roof tops, and outdoor spaces. WPA also seeks artists who are interested in giving artists "talks ", offering "makeshops ", and engaging in art interactions & interventions with the Public-At-Large.

This collaborative event will bring local and visiting artists together in an installation that encompasses all of downtown Easthampton. In addition to the abundant array of work seen during past events WPA is interested in expanding our event. We plan to do this by exploring the varied elements & emotional atmosphere that creates Easthampton: a community building an exciting urban experience while preserving our rural past.

We are encouraging proposals that incorporate elements of what is often referred to as "Psychogeography ". Here's an explanation taken from Wikipedia, an open source online encyclopedia:

In 2004 Joseph Hart wrote that "psychogeography " is "a slightly stuffy term that's been applied to a whole toy box full of playful, inventive strategies for exploring cities. Psychogeography includes just about anything that takes pedestrians off their predictable paths and jolts them into a new awareness of the urban landscape."

We have many engaging ideas and a willingness to assist visiting artists. We are arranging guest accommodations & beautiful hospitality within our artist's community for artists from outside of the Pioneer Valley.

If you would like to participate in the project, please contact:windowsproject@gmail.com

In regards to visiting artists we are looking for local folks who are willing to open up their homes or studios to guest artists participating in our big art party! Please, just contact us at windowsproject@gmail.com to let us know you can house visitors or certainly if you have any questions.
Cheers and we look forward to hearing from you,
Twyla

627_santa NEW PLAY BY LOCAL PLAYWRIGHTS

Northampton, MA-- Rhymes With Orange cartoonist Hilary Price and 93.9 WRSI DJ Kelsey Flynn create an evening of drama and comedy with an onstage reading of their new play "Santacide" on Monday, July 31 at Theater 14 in The Mendenhall Center for the Perfoming Arts at Smith College.

"Santacide" is a drawing room comedy about a mother/son detective team at the North Pole investigating Santa's murder. They encounter a dysfunctional family of sorts - a vampy Mrs. Claus, an incompetent elf, a frustrated mailman, a mute stable girl - all with good reasons to take Santa out. The event is a unique opportunity for the community to participate in the creation and development of a farce/murder mystery. There will be an audience-wide discussion led by local playwright and teacher Phil O'Donoghue after the performance to help refine the play for later full stage production. The reading will feature members of the local improv group the Villa Jidiots and New Century Theater favorites Van Farrier and Jeannine Haas.

Tickets are $7 at the door. Performance begins at 7 pm. Show is at Theater 14, Mendenhall Center For the Performing SweetheArts, Green St., Smith College Campus, Northampton.

ONGOING
A nice offer from Joe Blumenthal of Downtown Sounds who generously would like to have artists display their work there. (Downtown Sounds, 21 Pleasant St., Northampton, next to the Pleasant St. Theater)

The window is quite large, and has three panels, each one about 6' X 6', and is about 24" deep. It is exposed to intense sunlight in the morning; the heat of the sun plus the narrowness of the window make it inappropriate to display most musical instruments.

However, the sunlight doesn't hurt most artwork since it's only exposed for a month to six weeks. I normally pay $150 to the artist who installs the window, and work out a consignment agreement for the store to take a percentage of the price if the art is for sale and we manage to sell some of it.

The artwork can be freestanding, lean against a wall at the back of the window that's about three feet high, or (if it's not heavy) be hung from the ceiling.
It's great when the art can have a musical theme, but it's not necessary. Because of its highly visible commercial location, the work should have a mainstream appeal and not have themes which could be offensive. Small pieces don't work well since the window is so large.

If one of your readers is interested in displaying in this context, please have them contact me via email: musician@downtownsounds.com, or via phone at 413- 586-0998.
