And we’ve learned this much: Go make your work. Stop being a dick. Be a seriously good person to everyone in that room spending any of their time to make your crazy fever dream a reality. Because none of us HAVE to be there and many of us won’t be soon due to circumstance or choice, so be the best you can while you’ve got the mic. No one is getting famous or paying off their MFA from this pursuit of happiness, and we’ll all fight so it can be otherwise, but in the meantime be one of the good guys. Maybe try to show up to a stranger’s show once in a while. Theater only works if you show up. Spaces only thrive if you empower them with your strongest work.

The Incubator Arts Project

Incubator Arts, a performance space in St. Mark’s Church in Manhattan, is closing. This is from their post about that. And it is true and good advice for everything but especially situations where people are making hard-to-profit-from work for the entertainment and enrichment of others.

"Go make your work. Stop being a dick." It’s just that simple and–as this post and the closing of Incubator rightly indicate–difficult.

This is the final song on my new album, Gray Lodge Wisdom, which comes out at the end of the month. It features Aaron Roche on trombone. I play some synths, guitars, and I sing. The song is called “Fate Song.” It’s probably the song on the record that’s most plainspoken about my fight with cancer last year. Although I mention god in the song, I’m not trying to make a religious statement, as I’m not a particularly theistic person. It’s more about the ineffable feeling of needing to thank something intangible, ANYTHING, for still being alive, after a year of indescribable physical pain and torment, as well as thanking my family and my friends for being so supportive. If I could go back and change anything about the lyrics to this song, it would be to include some lines specifically about my mom and dad, my brother, and all of my friends, and the sacrifices that they made for me while I was ill.

When I wrote the song, I was on a lot of heavy duty medication, though, and being completely clear-eyed about what had happened was not something I was really thinking about. You live and you learn (literally!)
