last week i had a fantastic, yet surreal experience on a QUEBEC late night talk show in “TOUT LE MONDE EN PARLE”. i’ve never done much of the talk show circuit, and never seen one like this. it was a bit like a demented revisitation of the 1950′s show ‘THIS IS YOUR LIFE”- the charming host, Monsieur LePage, dug up all kinds of songs, quotes, clips and stories of my past & present that i needed to react to, IN FRENCH of course~ there was a bit of the legendary Hole and Pumpkins questions, (which are really picking up speed as of late ! side note. wow, just as i thought i was a decade past my past, it’s right back at me…. very interesting- i guess billy, Clove and i will continue to orbit around the same moon as we did back then …. very interesting time, quite poetic in many ways.) ANYHOW then there were questions of OOOM and just WHO is OUT OF THEIR MIND- they suggested, perhaps the girl who cheered at the loss of record deal, and stole money from banks to start her own fantasy production company, and dress up as a WITCH to rip a VIKING’S HEART out. YES. me. present. c’est moi. merci le QUEBEC!
the show was taped in front of a live studio audience and airs this sunday on CBC in quebec (Radio Canada)… i got lost in the maze of the public broadcasting building on my way out of the taping, and ran into these sweet props and tricks from our GOVERNMENT FUNDED ARTS, NEWS AND CULTURAL portal (IT’S LIKE PBS ON STEROIDS MAINSTREAM / MULTI GENERATIONAL, as OPPOSED to the majority of our USA expression and news sources being owned and controlled by private corporations!?!!) ANYHOW, the CBC employed both my parents in their early careers as journalists, and they both did phenomenal things there:
my MOTHER, Linda, conducted interviews for a radio show called “BRINGING BACK THE FUTURE” where she interviewed the likes of Ken Kesey (“one flew over the cuckoo’s nest” & star of “electric Kool-Aid acid test”) , Frank Zappa (!), Neil Cassady (from “on the road” of the Kerouack beat generation!) AND Timothy Leary!!! holy psychedelia!!!!!!
meanwhile, my FATHER, Nick, had his very own TV show “QUELQUE SHOW” (funny play on words for our bilingual city of MONTREAL). the show was SOOOO ahead of it’s time: MAN ON THE STREET REALITY TV, CIRCA 1969! experimental talk show where my father NICK (the charming ladies man) and his right hand man LES (the portly balding sweet heart) would plant themselves on an active street corner or farmers market in montreal and TALK TO THE PEOPLE “what’s on your mind?’ “what are you frustrated about?” “where are you from?” – from immigrants, to draft dodgers, to chicken farmers, to 100 year old judges, to drunks – the CAST OF CHARACTERS documented in this time capsule TV show- is sacred. human’s in a time before obsessive documentation and cameras. PURE , UNEDITED and HONEST reports on what it was to be human, on a street corner in 1969. i swear i will share it with you some day….
now, my tribute and photo essay of my late night walk through of some of CBC’S nick knacks, props and hallways – the same ones who nurtured my parents to EXPRESS themselves through their voices and of OTHERS. thank you CBC / RADIO CANADA.
SEE YOU SOON UNDER THE FULL OOOM X
