TINSEL AND LAVA
Please note: MP3s are only kept online for a short time, and if this entry is from more than a couple of weeks ago, the music probably won't be available to download any more.
Dishwasher - "Happy Valentine's Day". Every day I pass by where Dishwasher works. (He doesn't work as a dishwasher.) I say "Hey," and he says "Hi". He is always standing at the counter, in front of a stack of Panda Bear LPs, sewing. I say, "Were you out with your laaaaady last night?" and he blushes, bashful-shuffles. He was always out with his lady. Dishwasher is an indomitable ladykiller. He is an unstoppable hook-up artist. One look from his marble-blue eyes and a pretty girl is lost. I'm always seeing him in Laurier Park, teaching a new date to hopscotch; or on the subway with a sweetie, "just spending the day on the metro"; or on the airplane heading to Paris for a "romantic weekend". He's always wearing the same corduroy jacket and the same corduroy trousers but every day he wears a different collared shirt. There he is with it on the shop-counter, sewing in his new lover's name.
Tim Schwartz's Paris, Physical is my favourite conceptual artwork in eons.
