Well, before let me tell one thing. I feel a bit weird when I can meet a person who´s actually a legend, since I´m so afraid of being disappointed. Yesterday night me and Laura we had the luck to drop into the premiere of “Cutting up ghosts: Ghost #9”, the movie assembled by Genesis P Orridge and Derek Jarman using material from Anthony Balch, which made something like 6 hours of shooting featuring undergrounds legends such as our adored William Burroughs and Bryon Gysin. GPO was there and had a chat with the audience after the screening, and rarely I´ve heard a person so intelligent, so deeply sweet, and with that amazing humor. He talk about Donovan wax left hand, saving movies, hard works in hearing millions of tapes that WSB leaved somewhere, of the Queen Elisabeth being his bigger enemy in the world (and vice versa), of Bryon Gysin being a queen, of Lady Jaye being not more in this world.

Tonight, there will be the presentation of the documentary about GPO and Lady Jaye and their attempt, insane but really romantic, to create a third human being, a pandrogynous creature, modifying with plastic surgery their body. The movie is directed by Marie Losier, who have previously collaborate which many experimental artist, like Tony Conrad.
