It is after all the last big storm of the season.

We stand under the lifeguard tower

Looking out to sea,

Looking at the moon,

In 1998, while everyone was celebrating the Jackson Pollock Retrospective opening at New York’s Museum of Modern Art, Armando Lerma and Carlos Ramirez—two Mexican-American artists from Coachella Valley—were collecting scrap metal and building an aesthetic vision that would come to represent the duo’s distinct collaborative identity known as The Date Farmers.

“Oh, my god!” Kim Basinger squeals in the middle of our conversation. Her reaction explodes because she glances out the window of the restaurant in downtown Studio City where we’re sitting; she is completely caught off-guard by the spectacle of a pack of 12 O’Clock Boys—dirt-bike riders who show off by standing straight up—as they’re shooting through an intersection. This is possibly their way of adding to the occasion: Basinger has taken time from her schedule to sit with me on her sixtieth birthday. Continue reading “Suicide Blonde: Kim Basinger” »

It will take on a metronomic quality, reverberating through: the marathon coitus of the anal, oral, and vaginal ilk; the delirium; the advice from B—played by Sophie Kennedy Clark—to simply “think about the pack of sweeties,” you’ll win while performing a sex act with a stranger in the bathroom of a train car.
