excerpt from an interview i just did for a mexican rock magazine:

4.What kind of books inspire you to create something?

There are some books I read, especially by women, that are so TOTALLY HONEST and BRAVE that I wind up getting inspired to write my own truths. Margaret Cho’s book “I’m…

I go into a bookstore and I go to the poetry section and I pull down a random book by an author I don’t know and open it up to a random page. And I read that poem and think….the world is a magnificent place. If you do it right, on the right day, it’s like going into someone’s garden and secretly stealing a strawberry at the height of summer.”

THIS.

Really fun interview. I talk with Kyle Cassidy at http://www.philadelphiaweekly.com/arts-and-culture/cover-story/Neil-Gaiman-Kyle-Cassidy-Make-Good-Art.html

"And now I have a doctorate of the arts—so, obviously, if something is wrong with the arts, I can fix it."

THE THING ABOUT THINGS.

i’ve loaned a lot of things to a lot of friends 
like dresses and records and books 
and some of the time i never see them again 
and in a weird way i think that it works 

because the thing about things is they start turning evil 
when you start to forget what they’re for 
and so if you’re not sure what you did with my sweater
i’ll just try to love you a little bit more 

i had a ring it belonged to my grandfather 
he was a mason 
and gay 
and he was distant and bitter for all of my childhood 
and we never had much to say 

he wasn’t the type to give tokens of affection 
and so i stole ring when he died 
and twenty years later when i lost it at a bar 
i thought 
that’s fine 
I DIDN’T WANT HIM IN MY LIFE 

the thing about things is that they can start meaning things 
nobody actually said 
and if he couldn’t make something mean something for me 
i had to make up what it meant 

i can carry everything i need in one collapsing suitcase 
i can carry everyone i love in one phone application 
built to optimize the facetime with the ties i’m bent on making 
actually i want to be alone 
to mourn the loss 
of what this cost 
i collected you but now you are all lost 

i think it’s a poem and i think it keeps going 
i’ve borrowed and lost lots of things 
3 nights ago in the bar where i lost it a bartender gave me the ring 

and i lie in bed 
with my phone in my hand 
thinking 
what can i fix with this app 

and i call my grandfather 
and he doesn’t answer 
and i have to make peace with that fact 

because the thing about things 
is that they can start meaning things nobody actually said
and if you’re not allowed to love people alive 
then you learn how to love people dead 

because the thing about things is that they can start meaning things nobody actually said 
and if you’re not allowed 

to love people alive 

then you learn how to love people dead
……………………………

p.s. my summer and fall of shows - some solo and some with the band - start this coming weekend in CT (a free show at my old school). if you haven’t checked out the tour dates yet, have a look in my my last blog. hope to see you out there.

How to Tour in a Band or Whateverby Thor Harris
1-Don’t Complain. Bitching, moaning, whining is tour cancer. If something is wrong fix it or shut the fuck up you fucking dick. goddamn.
2-If you fart, claim it.
3-Don’t Lose shit. Everybody loses shit. Don’t fucking do it. Asshole.
4-Don’t fuck anyone in the band. There are tons of people to fuck who are not in this band. Dumbass.
5-If you feel like shit all the time, drink less beer at the gig. You will play better & feel better. What are you… a child? Some have the endurance for self abuse. Most don’t.
6-Remember the soundman’s name. He will do a better job.
7- Eat oranges. Cures constipation & prevents colds.
8-Masturbate. Duh… Where & when? Be creative. You’re an artist right?
9-If YOU can’t carry your suitcase 3 blocks, it’s too goddamn big.
10-Respect public space in the van. Don’t clutter, you Fuck.
11-If you borrow something, return it. Not Fucked Up.
12-Do not let the promoter dick you or talk you out of the guarantee. If there were not enuf people there, it’s their fault.
13- Driver picks the music.
14-One navigator only (usually sitting shotgun). Everyone else shut the fuck up.
15-Soundcheck is for checking sounds. Shut the fuck up while everyone else is checking.
16-Don’t wander off. Let someone know where you are.
17-Clean up after yourself. What are you… a goddamn toddler?
18-Touring makes everyone bi-polar. Ride the waves as best you can and remember, moods pass. So don’t make any snap decisions or declarations when you are drunk or insane.
19-Fast food is Poison.
20-The guestlist is for friends, family & people you might want to fuck. Everyone else can pay. They have day jobs.
21- Don’t evaluate your whole life while you’re sitting in a janitor closet waiting to go on. You think you’re above having shitty days at work? Shut up & do your goddamn job.
This list was written under the influence of lots of esspresso & anti-depressants while on tour w/ such greats as Shearwater, Swans, Smog, Lisa Germano, Angels of Light, Bill Callahan & many more. I hope this list will help you get along w/ your co-workers whatever your job is. Contributions to the list by Jordan Geiger, Kimberly Burke, Brian Orloff, Brian Phillips Celebrity Gang Bang, Kevin Schneider, Jonathan Meiburg, Michael Gira and some other folks.
Thanks for not being an asshole, Thor Harris

Some of these apply off-tour as well…

Drawn by the amazing Mark Buckingham. I think we did this for a celebration of Alan’s 50th Birthday.

Watch this video. It’s Amanda, giving her talk at TED two days ago. It’s about music and connection and being willing to ask for help…

It got a standing ovation, and you’ll see why.

LOVE this. It’s about help, and giving, and love, and sharing, and touching the heart of others - and yourself.
So happy that my first ever Kickstarter support was for Amanda.

The third of the BlackBerry Keep Moving films, shot in LA about ten days ago. Yes, I really am as tired as I look — the day before I did the 13 hour Chu’s Day signing, then flew to LA… But there are such beautiful shots here of the beach and of the birds…

It opens with me reading the end of the February Tale.

You’ve been keeping up with the Calendar of Tales, right?
