The Caravan 043: ANIMAL

When I saw the video for the first time I bit my lip and crossed my legs. "Kim," I whispered. "It's so sexy." When Kim Boekbinder asked me to be in the video I was full on hair knotted, no make-up and in a frenzy. I was leaving for New Orleans and more than frazzled. We went out for coffee and plotted. I knew I wanted to film it in NOLA. I knew I wanted to film it in The Banana Courtyard, an old brothel made Bed and Breakfast. She gave me a deadline and I gave my word to deliver.

Can I tell you what it's like to shape shift? Can I tell you what it's like to become an animal? It was late night and I had just gotten home from a glorious dinner with Lauren Cerand. It was her birthday and she was in NOLA the same time as me. Lauren is magic and this seemed like a night for magic. I had told the manager I'd be up late and may need a pot of Chicory coffee. My room was supplied and I set up. I shimmied out of my dress and set up the camera. There's something that shifts when you put on a song that moves you, that awakens something inside that makes you want to slither side to side or stretch long and lean like a cat on the prowl. Into the wee hours I taped myself getting lost in movement. I didn't care how I looked only that I was there and that I was alive, blood rushing, animalistic, free.

These gorgeous brilliant creatures all appear in the video with me. I know many but not all. It's the creative inspiring energy that brings out the animal in you. This my friends is why Kim Boekbinder is genius. The album is amazing. Do yourself a favor an buy it. Play it on repeat while painting, writing, dancing furiously and shape shift into the animal you already have in you.

The Caravan 041: The Impossible Girl

It was 1976, neither Kim Boekbinder nor Katelan V. Foisy were born yet.  Jim Henson sat in his studio drawing away, when suddenly he was hit by the biggest, meanest, fugliest characters he had ever met.  They were monsters, and they poked at his ears and pulled his hair until he trapped them in a single sheet of paper.  He named them Kim and Katelan. A few years later those terrible creatures were released from the paper and into human form.  Their names, by no coincidence were Kim Boekbinder and Katelan V. Foisy.  The V standing for Vicious of course.  Kim and Katelan were separated by many states for many years until one night unbeknownst to them, they would meet in a fancy hotel bar in the winter.  From that night, they knew they would come together in a fearsome friendship resulting with many a sequin being thrown and pink tubs with red lipstick smears.  It was truly truly a sight to behold.

Actually I lied.  It was the beginning of an amazing friendship full of inspiration, art, music, and sequins.  (I did not lie about the sequins.) Now Kim recently did something uber brilliant.  She started funding her tours through kickstarter, selling each show as she goes.  This ensures that the audience be plentiful, the travel expenses be taken care of, and the venue and sound system be wonderful.  Here is a tidbit from the press release:

Ms. Boekbinder’s “Impossible Tour” idea has been featured on CCN Money, BBC Radio’s World Service, and BoingBoing. http://www.boingboing.net/2011/06/14/crowdfunding-the-tou.html#comments.  The attention generated from the story has her email inbox flooded with thank you messages from fans, musicians, and venues; as well as offers from internet startups trying to address the very issues that she is dealing with.

Kim is currently in the process of getting funding for a 10 date US Tour.  So if you are in Los Angeles, San Diego, San Francisco, Seattle, Portland, Minneapolis, New Orleans, Boston, Hartford, or NY now is your chance to not only see her live but help in the process.  You are helping to redefine touring. Kim is one hundred and fifty percent boooonnnaaa fiiiidde.  She wouldn't have sent me this if she wasn't.

And I wouldn't have painted this painting for her "Gypsy" song if I didn't believe in her one hundred percent.  After all she believes in me, she believe in you too.  So snatch up those super cheap tickets and enjoy a night of music that you helped put on.  You won't regret it.  She'll have your heart in no time.  I know she grabbed mine.

And here is a link to her music.  I can guarantee you will fall in love on first listen.  Kim's one of those performers that transport you right into a different time.  A magical world where anything is possible and every day is filled with glitter and sequins.  Occasionally there's pie and a unicorn as well, but mostly glitter and sequins and muppets, shhhh.....

En Gypsy Couture 013: last Days of Summer

The summer started with magic and mayhem, trips to Coney Island, veve paintings, tarot, Battleship Cove, Blood and Pudding's release, road trips, and interviews.  It also brought many wonderful guests into my home.  Lonesome Liz spent a few days in the caravan, and both Kim Boekbinder and Gabby Young were in town at the same time.  I also switched gears when my new housemate Miss Bella Berlin moved in.  The bohemian household just got better.  A few days ago Bella and I put out the lights in the backyard and glittered up the ground.  We were having a party to say goodbye to summer, welcome the full moon, and bring together some of the most brilliant people we knew. We thought the best way to do this was to put out the holiday decorations, christmas lights, glitter snowflakes, and skulls, and bohemian candle lanterns.  That's how we roll.

Me right after Kim Boekbinder's show at Rockwood Music Hall.  I had just gotten home and was quite pleased with the outfit.

Jacket: Forever 21

Vintage Beatles shirt: My collection

Skirt: Beacons Closet

Shoes: Chinese Laundry

The Christmas lights dance in the moonlight.

As do the glitter snowflakes of summer.  Because no backyard is complete without them.

The Tibetan flags blowing in the night breeze.

And no summer evening should be without paper peacocks.

I hope you all enjoyed your summer.

I'm back in NYC from a weekend in the country.  Much to my delight I have come back to the release of the first chapter of Kim Boekbinder's new album "The Impossible Girl".  The album conatins art by Teetering Bulb, Dax Tran Caffee, and yours truly.  Dowload it now! You'll get the first four sons and high res images of the fabulous album art.  Cover photo is by Heike Schneider-Matzigkeit.  You want it.  Yes, yes you do.  I promise you it is as magical and fabulous as it looks.

Dreams Are Real 08: Magick

I used to dream of Chinese lanterns as decorations, wine bottles drenched in wax, and bohemian lace curtains.  I'd wake up to Armenian coffee and sandalwood incense, all while plotting my next painting.  Dreams are real, or at least sometimes they turn out to be.  My life is amazingly beautiful right now, filled with gorgeous friends, magical evenings, and an inner happiness I can't even begin to describe. 

I wore this vintage ensemble to Kim Boekbinder's show at Goodbye Blue Monday.  She dedicated her Gypsy song to me and as I watched her play and sipped my wine, it was one of those moments that I was so grateful to be alive.  Later Kim, Zelda Devon and a few others made our way to Williamsburg for late night burgers and impromptu tarot readings.  Please donate to her album fund so that we may be blessed with a full cd of Kim's gorgeous, gorgeous music.

Ladyfag's newest blog recently brought tears to my eyes and made my heart ten times bigger.  It reminds me of when I was a small little Gypsy, living on a farm in MA dreaming of a bohemian life.  We all have our attachments that stick with us through the years and inspire us for decades.  Watch this inspiring mini film titled Anastasia and Snegrouchka.  Darling Lady, you always hold a special place in my heart.

 Yesterday was one of my dearest friend's birthday.  I've known Uli since I was just 14 and trotting around Northampton MA.  We moved to NYC at the same time and remained friends ever since, even living in the same building at one point, calling ourselves the Quincy Punks.  Yes my friends we lived on Quincy, right in Bed-Stuy.  It was a magical time. Uli is one of those people who I don't get to see nearly enough and cherish so deeply.  Happy Birthday Uli.

And thank you to my amazing friends Kim, Travis, Molly, Fred, Kurt, and Zelda for an amazing night of absinthe, corsets, and conversation.  I love you all.
