2016 Critic's Picks
|Steve Hubert is that friend of yours you go secondhand shopping with and everything he tries on looks maybe a bit weird, perhaps ill fitting, yet he always manages to pull it off without irony. Hubert’s openness to new ventures in the city afforded him opportunities to unfetter his curiosity and pursue a variety of things. In the past year, he produced two plays under the For’er Players Theatre Company (The Chiropractor and Allergic to Power), performed at performance cabaret RERUNS, wrote The Hieroglyph-Prone Society of Actors-in-Commercials (a short story for new literary art journal Young Adult), mounted a solo-exhibition at the recently established Duplex, and several others. Throughout these projects, he touched on the absurdities of subcultures, power dynamics as insecure structures, and a novel approach to artists’ theatre. I don't reckon the result to be mastery, but it’s rare to get a real sense of freed curiosity from many artworks, never mind that of several projects, by an individual artist and his respective collaborators. Executed at the risk of slipping into dilettantism, he emerged the earnest dabbler – in dapper thrift no less!|

For this group exhibition Meg and I decided to collaborate. The result was a tangle of lights inspired by a text
wood, paper, carboard, concrete, plexiglass, tin foil, foam, ceramics, glue, lights.
THE CHIROPRACTOR is dedicated to Meghann,
who thought this might be possible.

Meg and I started a new band, Chiropractors, when we had free babysitting on Saturday (Thanks Mom!) Here's our first phone recording, Chiropractors:

Members of JSN seem on the fence about the new band:
JSN Practice it's 17 minutes
He'd been trying at this for a while, and apparently felt like this could be his last shot.
I was moved by his emotional transparency.
Jason Day, who isn't American, was being heckled by
Amercian fans of an American golfer. The game was in America.
They were saying "choke choke choke"!
Who doesn't imagine themselves as the character of a similar story?
