Got to see Depeche Mode at the Staples center recently. Haven't been to a large arena show like that in years. it was joyous to see THAT many people out for a non-sporting event. Had great seats, the show was wonderful although they didn't play enough of the old stuff that makes my cold lil' heart sing with joy. So funny that during the slow songs, people held up their cell phones instead of lighters. Had backstage passes...didn't meet any of the guys but stood near them a few times. They were being mobbed and I didn't want to be one of the mob-ees. Gore was wearing a ridiculously wonderful winter cap shaped like a mohawk. He has nice teeth.|
Chatted with Daniel Miller for quite a bit...yes THE Daniel Miller of The Normal (sings Warm Leatherette and T.V.O.D) and the founder of Mute Records. When i start to think of all the Mute Records related bands, it surprises me I wasn't overwhelmed talking to him. (Einstürzende Neubauten, Depeche Mode, Butthole Surfers, Erasure, Moby, Miss Kittin, Nitzer Ebb, Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds, The Residents, Sonic Youth, Wire, Add N to (X), and dozens of others.)
Working currently at Mutato. Am working on a pilot for the LOGO network in January. Hopefully, will be able to go to Raleigh early next year to get the rest of my stuff. Xmess in Hollywood...wish I could go see Mom.
