Video for Patti Smith’s gorgeous tribute to avant-garde poet/dramatist Antonin Artaud

The great Patti Smith collaborated with New York City experimental audio artists Soundwalk Collective on the forthcoming LP ” Peyote Dance ,” a celebration of French avant-garde dramatist and poet Antonin Artaud (1896-1948). I’ve been fascinated with Artaud’s “Theater of Cruelty” since my first exposure to him in my friend Adam Parfrey (RIP) and Bob Black’s seminal 1989 anthology Rants and Incendiary Tracts: Voices of Desperate Illumination 1558–Present.

Trump Begs Merrick Garland to Keep His Financial Lies Private 

I love karma.

Last night, Judge Amit Mehta ruled Trump’s accounting firm must turn over their client’s financial records to Congress. Twelve hours later, Trump’s attorney appealed the decision. That appeal will be to the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals.

Merrick Garland is currently the chief judge at the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals, where President Trump’s legal battle will head next as the president’s attorneys attempt to reverse the earlier court ruling in favor of Congress. Garland was nominated to the Supreme Court by President Barack Obama in 2016 following the death of Associate Justice Antonin Scalia. But congressional Republicans stonewalled his nomination process until after the election, arguing that the incoming president should be the one to nominate a judge to the lifelong position.
