Song About Old Rollercoaster

Road maps as eyes I am alive and leaving.

Finally saw Short Term 12 last night. Tugged on all of the heartstrings. 
Premiered the new Small Sur track, ‘Wild Geese’ for Singles Club over at Village Voice today. So happy to finally be able to share this with everyone.

The Man Behind The Mountain: An Intimate Look at American Folk Artist Leonard Knight

Salvation Mountain is known around the world as a burst of color in the desert outside Niland, California, on the Mexican border. A one-man monument built over three decades piece by piece; it is a gradual accruement of hope, love and joy in physical form.

Less is known about the man who built it, Leonard Knight, mostly because that’s the way he liked it. An unassuming man, he preferred to let his mountain speak for itself. It did just that, in bright, bold colors and optimistic messages.

After visiting the mountain multiple times, filmmakers Ben Stoddard and Dave Ehrenreich spent an intimate extended stay with Leonard at Salvation Mountain. Rather than add to the already vast lexicon on the mountain as an object, they chose to focus their attention on the man who built it. Through interviews with Leonard and his inner circle of friends that cared for him in his fading years, they hoped to learn about and showcase the enigmatic artist himself.

Directed/Edited - Ben Stoddard & David Ehrenreich
Director of Photography - David Ehrenreich
Music - Brennan Lloyd
Sound Design - Nate Evans

“PH: Well, the line has moved. When we made Lavender Country, the line was between who’s straight and who’s gay. It was a faulty division in the first place because scientifically we all know there’s a lot of blur. People are crossing over all the time, and in their actual sexual behavior there’s not really a discrete line between homosexuals and heterosexuals. In fact, sexual behavior runs on a continuum. That’s the truth. The gay-straight line is a little artificial in the first place and it’s a-historic. Politically, there hasn’t really been a grouping of gay people in a lot of different cultures, though of course gay behavior has been there all along. So there’s an artificial line, but it’s one that was necessary to move the movement forward. And now the line has shifted.

My guitar player, a guy I’ve been running with for years, lives in San Francisco, and his sexuality is somewhat of a blur. Right now, he’s involved in a heterosexual relationship, but I know his history very well and he’s a crossover. He said the line has shifted from who you love to who you hate. It’s an anti-bigotry line. The bigots are on one side and the rest of us are on the other. That’s the new line. Gay or straight is out the window. It’s a non-issue. That’s not what’s real, that’s not what’s happening. The issue is: Do you hate somebody or not, and why.”

it might be that it’s almost 2AM, but this made me laugh really damn hard. Jamiroquai’s “Virtual Insanity” without music and overdubbed imagined sound effects.
