I just completed the second New York City run of The Animal Show and, inspired by the brilliant photographs my pal Seth Webster took of the show, I figured I’d take some time to write out some reflections about the show and the experience of performing it again after touring with it in the summer and adding some new material.

Sure, my summer tour ended a good three months ago, but one of my favorite things about driving around all Summer was listening to music in the car. I assembled this playlist as I went and decided to share it with you, along with a little breakdown about each track and why it was there. You can listen to the playlist on Apple Music or Spotify!

Fellow activist/artist Unparalleled Suffering has just released this documentary about Kaporos in Brooklyn that features music that I wrote just for the film. I don’t know of a more dedicated or passionate person, and it is quite evident when you see this film. He was staying with me much of the time he was shooting Kaporos, and he was out on the streets for the bulk of the days he was in Brooklyn.

While I was in the Pacific Northwest, my friends with Unparalleled Suffering and The Evidence Box took me to a local dairy farm they had connected with to take some photos.

I just got home from running another Ragnar Relay race with my beloved Strong Hearts Vegan Power running team.

The short story is that I am doing a Summer tour of my solo theater piece, The Animal Show, but there will be a bunch more going on.

We’ll be at The Kraine Theater in the East Village on June 26th and this year’s guests will be Joel B. New, Anna/Kate Band, and My Demon Sister! Continue reading →
I just finished up 4 days of running an electronic music workshop at Moogfest with my friend Eban Crawford AKA Senator Jaiz. We took groups of people through the process of creating an 8 to 16 bar piece of music in Ableton Live digital recording software. I captured TONS of footage with my new camera which I will be editing into vlogs this week. I’m really having a blast getting into shooting videos and photos, and looking forward to developing these skills (over the next month omg) to document my tour this summer.
