Summary: Videos, video journals, and films from Richard Bluestein, Madge Weinstein, and Friends
After seeing a startlingly new cover of Self Magazine, Grizelda and I made an "emergency podcast" about it. The audio will be posted on Yeast Radio but the video is buried here because I'm fat and ugly plus I had just woken up and I don't really want people to see it.
Bliri reads a short selection from Madge Weinstein's new daily substack, The PaperGrum. Please subscribe. It's how she keeps her podcast free!
A statement is made in the way one of my favorite stores wraps it's sales.
I say goodbye to YouTube and why.
This video got me a one week suspension from YouTube, 11 years after I posted it in 2010. Xdope made it. Standards are retroactive apparently. Youtube is garbage, which is why i'm migrating back here, where I own my own shit.
This can’t be on youtube for obvious reasons. Ha ha.
One of the most interesting people I have ever filmed, The Conductor conducts the echoes while he's really high.
Nothing unusual apparently.
I've been capturing a lot of really old tapes. This is probably the worst thing I have ever posted. I couldn't resist. Watching makes me feel like I'm on drugs.
Fred Burkart, the legendary Chicago Photographer/Philosopher died yesterday. This is footage I shot of him the Sunday following 9-11-2001 and it is his commentary on the subject. Sorry about the bad videography. The sound is good at least.
Madge and her sister CoÃ±ita visit a gay cruise park in Siches, Spain.
A spoof of a transgressive short film by Usama Alshaibi called "Slaughtered Pigtails" in which a woman is hunted down and brutally murdered. In this version, the hunter is a drag queen, and the victim is just a really bad actress. Starring Silky Jumbo and Shishaldin.
It's a long story.
Long before I ever became friends with artist Camilla Ha, I ran into her on acid portraying a crazy old Jewish woman at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago.
Mz. Jean LeQueef made another amazing video. This time it's a mashup of a Sylvia Brown Q&A webinar and a Majela ZeZeDiamond (Queen of Vagina) song with reaction by retarded people.
