Juggalos, Zizek, Robert Bly

Robert Bly, bizarro world Juggalo commentator

Wow. Just found A Gathering of Men on Google video. Not only is that a treasure trove of samples for the music I’m making for this ICP show but it’s much more concise that reading all of Iron John. I read Iron John and have been compiling all sorts of stuff from that book with various fairy tales, myths, numerology, and Dark Carnival things.

Also, fascinated by some things in this Slavoj Zizek article about “meaningless violence” and riots in the London Review of Books. Not sure I agree with all of it, and very little of it applies but I’m interested in this whole there’s no violence with a point in contemporary society, there’s just a kind of pyrrhic fuck off kind of burning yourself down kind of thing.

Just reading and thinking, guys.

    Hi Allegra!!

    That is a promotional photo for my upcoming show (which is this blog is also for) called Wicked Clown Love at the Kitchen in NYC, Feb 2-4, 2012.

    It was taken by the amazing Allison Michael Oresnstein and seen from L-R: Carmine Covelli, Ben Demarest, and me, the creator of the show, Neal Medlyn.
