Eric Wilson and I are thrilled to launch BELT: A 2-Man Memoir, our podcast about masculinity. Humorous man wisdom. Iconoclastic banter. Where cultural studies bangs into the locker room. Terrified men preen. But they also confess their fears, their desires. Desperate for brotherhood. We are raw, vulnerable. We voice our most intimate stories. We make sense of the forces that have shaped our manhood. Those constructs that invigorate, we embrace. The rest, we quiet. We will be better men.
As a vomit-burp is to
not-vomiting, so the profane is to the sacred. Parental discretion
advised. Through the talk of the locker room, we transcend the locker
room. If we are ridiculous, well . . . we are ridiculous.
Listen to our first episode, Hickory Stick – Male Violence Undone, on our website: https://belt.live/BELT: A 2-Man Memoir will also be available – soon! – on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Stitcher, and Google Play.
It was a joy to write this story for Impakter Magazine about pollution and environmentalism, while thinking about my roots. I talk about UNDERWATER: a 7 channel video installation and operatic disco where I sing about global warming and pollution like a Jewish cantor on the Day of Atonement, while trance music arises from depth readings taken from 40 of my scuba dives. UNDERWATER opens at the Adamski Gallery in Berlin this May. If you have any stories about global warming, marine life, seas rising and hurricanes, please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org – they will be included in the show.
