When Bob Ray of Crashcam Films ask me to make 3 copies of 3 sack puppets in a week, I of course having lived through many days of 100+ weather jumped at the chance. Nothing stirs up creativity in me like stupid ass challenge involving materials I haven’t really used. Paper sacks are unforgiving and fragile. They do weird things to glue, especially hot glue. They really know how to surprise you. They actually do whatever the hell they want. No paper bag is the same. You think they are all the same until you try to glue a moustache to one of them! I look forward to to seeing the short film “Sacked.” Bob’s a freaking lunatic.
If you like supporting art, need a tax deduction or want cool rewards, please watch the funny clip and chip in.

SEE ALL PHOTOS
There are those of you who would nail some of my favorite crazy ladies to a cross. If you do, let me know. They’d want someone to take photos. Their craziness is art and I LOVE IT!
For me it started with Wendy O’Williams. Actually it probably started with my grandmother, Mimi. Then Grace Jones! Demolition Man is my favorite but this video for La Vie En Rose give a good visual overview of her beautiful, hard ass, 21 century amazingness. Grace Jones with Pavarotti
Madonna probably had the greatest impact on me. Lucky Star came out when I needed a feisty role model. Express Yourself, Vogue (mtv awards), Human Nature are some of my favorites. Erotica and Like A Prayer are a few of the most controversial but this blew me away when I saw Madonna in Houston in 1989. It was the first time I saw drag queens in person. Yipee! I’ll spare you photos of me with Madonna haircuts & clothing w/jelly bracelets. Imagine.
I went out and found my own drag queens and there was a stint where I was highly influenced by the band Vixen. Laugh all you want. I was much more suited to be a metal girl than try to pull off being Madonna! Definitely some Joan Jett and Lita Ford thrown in there.
And finally we have arrived at this point. Lady Gaga. A grand answer to a missing element of music in my life for some time. I was just going to watch this one video and return to work. But I love me some crazy bitches and wanted to tell you about them! oooo la ah ha ha ah
UPDATE: I should add Annie Lennox, Amanda Palmer and the Texas Rollergirls……
