Recorded at Burnt Ramen, Richmond, California, November 17, 2001
This was earlier in the show that climaxed with Extreme Elvis and me. Here John the Baker and I sang such Songs as FUCK THE FASCIST USA and CRACK BABY. We had to handle a screaming heckler who ended up coming to my performances over the years since!

Recorded at Temescal Arts Center, Oakland, California.
This was one of the most sexy, erotic, warm, juicy performances we ever did! Everybody participated, nobody left, a lot of nude dancing including a contortionist! What more could I want?! Aaahhhh, how can you tell if a performance was a success? Well, Saturday’s performance was the longest night in the two+ years of the Temescal series. And nobody left during the performance, which is probably a first in my forty years of doing performances. And when it was over, nobody wanted to leave. But that is usual. The audience was a real mix of straight and underground creatures in the full range. But everybody ended up nude, except for the former professor who had just been in the hospital. Even he said the performance loosened and opened him up. He provided the music for most of the night. A newspaper called the series a “variety.” I call that newspaper PSYCHIC because we even had a contortionist who did their [they didn’t liked the pronouns SHE and HER, preferring THEY /THEM] dance, which was actually one of the things I always have wanted in a performance. THEY actually danced twice… Once dressed… And then nude, pushing /risking THEMSELF while Nat sang and the professor played guitar. This risking dance rooted /anchored everything, made everything that came afterwards possible… Two Brothers rocking nude together for hours, the straight tree guy rocking nude on my lap… The whole room doing a very juicy explicit ritual of GESTURES [there are always surprises for me… Like I didn’t think LICK EACH OTHER’S EARS would be a controversial gesture, but what do I know?]… The whole room evolving into an explicit ritual of music making juicy fun dancing which all [including the corporate finance guy] melted into together. I pushed the explicit because the two booking women were there and I wanted to get everything out on the table so that we will have freedom to go even further in the future there. They loved it!

This is the only video of the plays I have directed, actual plays as opposed to performance art. It was shot before there were cheap low light cameras. It was dark back then, THE DARK AGES! We have lightened it up digitally.
