commented on Seattle Musician Wayne Horvitz Wins Prestigious Doris Duke Performing Artist Award
Good for Wayne. This guy has been a constant in my life since I was young. When I tried to out punk the punks he was there with Naked City. When I tried to grow up he was there with the New York Composers Orchestra. When I ran away to Seattle he was there with Zony Mash an Pig Pen. When I bought a home he was there with the Royal Room and last week when I took my daughter to a dance performance he was there as the composer for the strange ensemble. I'm not a good fan in that I'm not good at following artists but Wayne Horvitz works so bloody hard - he's just there - omnipresent.

It is all the more disappointing because at least one person whose opinion I respect, Dan Savage, who had Swartzman on the Lovecast this week, thought that the movie had some smart things to say about adult sexuality. There is no mention of the dialog and dynamics that takes place between white people who want to fuck each other in this review. I think that at least some of us wold be interested in that.
