Warning for live human shit, sexual trauma, suicide, anger, and misery. We had a night on the town to see the new off Broadway production “while you were partying” by Peter Mills Weiss and Julia Mounsey with Brian Fiddyment at Soho Rep! Its a fantastic new play for the irony poisoned, N64 modding, suicidal incel poster psyche of many an “ordinary American” cursed by the internet age. As usual, the NYtimes has no idea what’s going on, but fret not dear reader, we’re just the floating voices that do, and that’s the art and labor promise! Poem, prayer, meme: you decide.
Episode 50 – Los Espookys with Ana Fabrega and Julio Torres
We’re joined by the incredible Ana Fabrega and Julio Torres! We talk about the fragile “Jenga tower” brains of art world people, the labyrinth of horror that is our immigration system, and exploitative gig economy bulllshit that inspired their HBO show Los Espookys. It’s a delightful reprieve from a particularly dire news cycle. We forgot to take a picture so Lucia made an interpretive drawing of the interview. Big thank you to everyone for the continued support as we pass the 50 episode milestone!

We got a modest amount of funding to travel to the Midwest to participate in Erin K Drew’s amazing art talk show, Putty! Although we had some incredible support, we definitely returned to NYC in the red. Please consider supporting us on Drip for the full Putty show including a heated discussion we get into with the artists Maura Jasper & William Keihn. Erin’s about to embark on a tour of her own, you must go see this fun and informative show!! We were also visited with The Condo Association to discuss the question “What would a unionized art world look like?” We had a small and super fun show at a witch store called Space Oddities as well!! Thank you so much to everyone that hosted us, and shared your amazing neighborhoods with us.
