Cari Ann of The Museum of Wild and Newfangled Art (mowna) on Art in the Age of COVID and More

I just enjoyed a challenging, fun and so inspiring conversation with Cari Ann, one of the two creators/curators of The Museum of Wild and Newfangled Art or mowna (her partner is Joey Zaza). Teaching dance and technology as a full-time professor at NYU’s Tish school, immersed in the intersection of these two areas, Cari Ann has taken her interests further into developing an elegant online space to present art of all types. And she is ever so passionate about it.

THE SEX FILES: Greta Grindhouse on Her Love of 70s Porn and Kickstarting her Adult Career

I was in a really emotionally abusive relationship for a long time. I knew I had to leave, but I was scared of how I would survive on one mediocre income; my ex was always sure to remind me that he had a much better paying job and that I was broke compared to him. I came across camming, and it really intrigued me. My relationship was also void of sex. I felt unattractive, and I was chastised if I ever took pride in my appearance or received compliments from others. Being a cam girl, having fun, talking to people, being worshipped/desired by others, AND getting paid for it, seemed like a dream job.

Countless Thousand: Triumph of Justice

Countless Thousand: Triumph of Justice

This genre of music, whatever it is (certainly not 70’s prog, the genre from which I judge all other music) is not my cup-of- tea. But I’m damn impressed over the Triumph of Justice, and can’t recommend it enough.

Patch & Tweak with Moog by Kim Bjørn

Patch & Tweak with Moog by Kim Bjørn

Yes, things do get technical here. Bjørn is writing for a specific audience who want to learn all they can about these unique instruments. But Patch & Tweak, with Moog, is a one-of-a-kind book for a one-of-a-kind musical instrument brand that has survived the test of time.

Astralseid: Shamanic Love

Astralseid: Shamanic Love

Astralseid’s music is created in what is described by their press as an “earthen cabin, situated on an organic mountain-farm in Western Norway,” and these four of Shamanic Love do sound otherworldly and mostly disconnected from popular genre and commercialism. “Tribal Ambient” anyone?

The city’s mayor, Femke Halsema, has been against the area for quite a while, claiming that the cabins invite abuse and gawking from tourists. She also recently proposed to have only Dutch residents allowed in the city’s nearly 200 marijuana-selling coffee shops. Again, she wants to cut down on tourist involvement. Although I always thought that kind was what Amsterdam was after.

Hadnot Creek: Hard World

Hadnot Creek: Hard World

Satire and silliness, tinged with pathos is not easy to manage, all in well-sounding tunes. Hadnot Creek does a great job of delivering all this and more on Hard World.

Lord Sonny the Unifier: All New Information

Lord Sonny the Unifier: All New Information

This noisy (in a great way) overdriven wacky musical making outfit is led by Gregory Jiritano. He and his players deliver a punk, space-rock, slightly Brechtian musical brew across these four.
