Every Me and Every You

1. An essay like this works best if we’re all good-looking (reader, writer, critic). This helps with attraction.

2. I am unapologetically shallow.

3. No one ever learns anything, and you won’t learn anything here.

New COMIC!

My new comic is ready to be held by your delicate reader hands. I didn’t give it a title, but we can misleadingly call it The Rodrigo Constanzo Story (we have to refer to it by something).  He wrote the initial script 11 years ago and I’ve been picking at it since. But don’t worry–you won’t be able to tell it’s production spanned over a decade. It’s just as stupid as if I had banged it out in two weeks…but that delightful kind of stupid, ya know?

Q: Ok, so what’s it about?
A: It’s not about anything. It takes place in an office and there are three characters. It’s nonsense. 
 
It’s A5 sized, laser printed on thick, really nice quality paper, and 32 black and white pages. The back cover is Rod’s spectacular jalapeño mac n’ cheese recipe, and that part is in color.
 

 

UGH! Shut up…. how much is it?

 
£5 …….. If you live in the UK and you’re going to see Rod in person. (you can pay him in cash if you prefer.)
 
£6.50 …….. If you live in the UK and want it mailed to you.
 
£7 ……..  If you live in Europe.
 
$9 …….. If you live in the US of A or Canada.
 

(Shipping is included in the price and it’s coming to you out of Manchester, England.)

 

How do I pay you?

Paypal the correct amount (given your geographic region) to

The Me That No One Sees

“…and what you’re shown is profound. Justin Timberlake’s Cry Me A River isn’t something we were prepared for in 2002. And since then, the methods used in creating such a sophisticated work have only improved.

Wasn’t it just a music video though?”

Read the full article I wrote on the FOCI Arts webpage. 
(Thanks to Ray Evanoff for giving my weird as fuck article a home, and to Rod for his amazing skills as an editor.)

The wreck of former boundaries (music video)

 

This is a music video I made that features the electronic version of Aaron Cassidy‘s The wreck of former boundaries (“The wreck of former boundaries (2014-15) for fixed media 5.1-channel electronics”).

I asked Aaron if he wouldn’t mind sitting down with me while I filmed him. I didn’t know what I would make, but felt like I had enough kernal thoughts/feelings at the time that something not hollow would happen. I was sitting in a talk he was giving about his new work, and as he played this piece, I was struck by how he listened. That’s when it became clear to me that I needed to capture both of these things: his words and his listening. The rest of my ideas would hang on this as the material, or this would be the material through which I’d look into those things.  

This is the first thing I made out of that material: A music video.

For the most part, his reactions in the video are in sync with the sounds he’s hearing. It was important to me to preserve that. However, there are some time-stretch manipulations, and in just a few cases I cut in footage from other moments as necessary band-aids in the editing process. I also manipulated the footage in order to assist you in seeing what I see. I tried to do this as unobtrusively and subtly as possible.

It’s also worth mentioning that we ran through the piece only once. While I am very familiar with the piece (having listened to it many times leading up to this shoot) I felt it important to improvise the lighting direction. I have an almost metaphysical trust in improvisation, and enjoy the process of being in that kind of heightened state of awareness.

David Pocknee and Susie Green were my assistants on that day.
Susie helped with the gear and play-back audio,
and David helped me as a light operator, and by recording the interview’s audio. 
Thanks to them, and of course thanks to Aaron for his trust in my process.

(Here you can read Aaron’s post about it on his webpage.)

Lines and Panels

Some folks on llllllll.co (the lines forum, and thus the ^ title) are helping me with ideas for 3 panel comic strips. I made a post on there and just asked if anyone had any ideas, because I’m just in that mood to draw comics. They’re a great group of people and I’ve been really inspired by what they’ve written thus far.

He got it wrong, but also I might have explained the rules wrong.
Ok, both are true.
