thinking of doing a solo tour of poems, performance art, & music. thing is, my tour won't be a 'world', 'u.s.', or 'regional' tour. It will be a two-week Gainesville tour, complete with commemorative T-shirts and products (books, CD's). ideas include a 5-minute introduction to meditation followed by a two-hour demonstration of 'chair' zazen in a loud and busy venue like maybe an Action Research show at The Laboratory or something along those lines. another idea: "Watch Tom Type". poetry readings as a scheduled feature at the various po-events around town. the 'Bad Attempt at Stand Up' Routine I've totally not been working on. live painting! venues could include Wild Iris, The Lab, The Atlantic, Puerto Tagwa, CMC, DoubleDown, Kickin' Devil Cafe, The Bull (for Film Night, during which I attempt to view in temporal sequence all the Werner Herzog / Klaus Kinski pictures in one sitting). maybe show the skunk-ape trilogy somewhere or the films of miller & frog [get frog as a special guest]. these are just ideas. I don't think anyone has ever done a local two-week tour of their own home town. maybe it's time for some action, complete with 70s porn soundtrack. live cooking demonstrations? maybe make a documentary of the tour. I don't know...I gotta pay rent.
