Conversation with the Divine Apr 29, 2011

There was a narrative, it emerged in certain passages: with boy meets girl, is confronted by a rival, fights and looses but is nevertheless the winner anyway; but the bigger story of freedom, of beautiful, unrestrained euphoric freedom that in it's-self, reaches to an epiphany of spiritual awakening and expression became the flying carpet ride I took. Piggybacked upon the predictable story of meeting, analogous of base human interaction and how being changed by the emergence of a new, better truth is the giddy thrill.

My Arm is up in the Air Mar 25, 2011

In Tobias Wolff’s story “Bullet in the Brain,” a curmudgeonly book critic is shot at point blank range by a bank robber whose linguistic clichés the critic can’t help mocking. The bullet’s physical speed of 900 feet per second, becomes “a pathetically sluggish, glacial pace compared to the synaptic lighting” inside the critic’s skull. “Once it entered the brain,” Wolff writes, “the bullet came under the mediation of brain time.”

Seattle Times reviews West Apr 23, 2010

Michael Upchurch at Seattle Times reviews West:

In "West," their epic-scale and near-epic-length new show at On the Boards, the video wizardry of "Awesome" (always in quotes) has taken a quantum leap. The white silhouette of a galloping horse ripples across a rugged backdrop. A night-sky is unveiled inside a packing crate. Trickles of blood drip down from where you least expect them.

These fancy flourishes are all part of a dreamlike meditation on the myths and transformations of the American West that's both ambitious and ambiguous.
