2.22, Waterhouse, OOOM & You


i write to you from the bay area, on the eve of my lucky day 2.22, the good luck number has been following me since an eerie and memorable night at the age of 13. it’s a good day to introduce OOOM to some special people from the magic Apple world. then on flight to the UK for lots of talk and action, more on that soon….
before laying my sleepy head, and taking off for a busy couple weeks of promotion (of up coming album release, finally!), i wanted to recap the OOOM / WATERHOUSE exhibit that closed this month.
(the sign to the right says “not suitable for children”, but i do not agree)
for those of you who’ve been following this blog, or any version of me in the last many years, you must know what a PRE-RAHAELITE era fan i am. the inclusion of OOOM Film as contemporary response to that era, and in particular the painter, J W Waterhouse, has really been the greatest honor in my creative life to date. to share a Fine Art Museum with a Master from the Victorian era, and to be sharing wall space with his muses, whom have been mine for so long, is HEAVEN. HEAVEN. HEAVEN.
don’t even need to time travel to get there!
the black velvet womb projection room with church pews, was the ideal way to experience it. now we know, and i will aim to frame it that way again one day.
for now i will get some rest, and in lieu of museum installation, i will prepare to spread the message of OOOM via talk and conversation for a while. an equally sacred exchange… just not enough black velvet.

happy happy happy

  1. Those pictures are really nice!
    I spotted the EPK of OOOM a couple of days ago, what a great job. Looking forward for this release that will most likely be the best of 2010.
    Take care!

    2/22 was our best friend Cyrinda Foxe’s Birthday, she is in heaven now and sending good vibes to you with Andy Warhol who died on this day. Today is also the great poet Ishmael Reed’s birthday.
    Bon Chance!

    gig in london please!
    2010 has to be the best year for gigs… just has to be to kick the 90s out of the water.

    Who are the gentleman with you in the top pic? The fella on the left looks like your guitarist- what is his name?

    I wish I made it to Montreal to see the OOOM/Waterhouse show. Ugh!! The Lady of Shallott + MAdM = two of my favorite ladies (represented in painting/music/poetry). It’s just amazing to me that MAdM and Waterhouse collided. Such a perfect union!

    “She left the web/She left the loom/She saw the water lillies bloom/ She saw the helmet and the plume…” ugh, darn that Lancelot and his fancy looks and “tirra lirra” by the mirror! (Well, at least he got her outta the house…tho she ended up dead…hmmm)

    +~+~+Counting the days til March 16…

  11. Congratulations, Melissa. As a fan of your work, I’m really proud of you and hope OOOM to be a great sucess.
    There’s some possibility for me to watch it here in Brazil?
