One of my teen heroes has given an interview with the Guardian on the subject of her new independently funded album, film and graphic novel multi-platform project. Melissa Auf der Maur briefly mentions arts philanthropy in the US, the subject of which is beginning to intrigue me. This slightly contentious advocacy of private patronage stands out:
“Anybody out there with some extra money, find an artist as a pet.”
I must find out what Melissa means exactly. For fun, see also her thoughts on the charms of “witchy, feminine” men. Melissa Auf der Maur sure is a hippy , but she can burn incense with me any time.
Bonus: A Melissa interview for a v-blogger calling himself ‘Johnnystyles’
ps. Pyramid cam looking particularly good tonight if anyone wants to check it out.
