Poster/promo for “My Conjoined Twin 6,” one night art show/spoken word show presented by the Antagonist Art Movement featuring artists and writers. 09.29.11 @ Niagara Bar & Lounge (112 Ave. A, NYC).
Attached is the flier for the next show. This is the last installment of “My Conjoined Twin” at the Niagara location, however this will not be the last show! Set up is from 8-8:45PM, and the show will begin promptly at 9:30 PM.
So, I have this idea. I’ll be participating in the 5th installment of the “My Conjoined Twin” art show/”reading” on July 14th. “My Conjoined Twin” is a one night art show/spoken word show/performance presented by the Antagonist Art Movement, wherein writers are selected for a unique brand of storytelling. Writers and artists work together in pairs to create a one of a kind audio and visual experience.
Once again I am “conjoined” with my good friend and talented photographer, Marissa Bea. Marissa and I like to switch things up, so to speak. Sometimes I write a song based on her image. Sometimes, she creates a photograph based on my lyrics. One time, we even had a conjoined triplet, which consisted a story by Brother Mike Cohen, portraits by Marissa, and a song by me (for the record writing a song about feet is difficult!).
In order to further this idea of poly-collaboration, I’ve decided to post the song I wrote for the next MCT, “A Song for Rhett Miller,” online at HITRECORD.ORG. HITRECORD.ORG is a professional open collaborative production company that creates and develop art and media (videos, writing, photography, music, anything) collaboratively. Now, anyone can contribute on the collaboration page.
Thus, this is an open invite to all artists: HAVE AT IT!

“Artists and writers conjoin talent”
This is an exciting amalgam of writers and visual artists collaborating, currated by Shannon aka Shann E. Gunns. Folks write about paintings, folks paint about poems etc etc. Stop by, say hi! Have a dink and enjoy the night. TBA when the writers will start reading their works.
“A song for Rhett Miller” is a song that I wrote, recorded, and released on my SoundCloud site on my birthday, June 29, 2011. The song is an attempt to convey my appreciation and awe of musician, singer, and songwriter, Rhett Miller. The tune is based on Dylan’s song “Song To Woody.” In it, I make reference to Rhett’s song “Come Around,” as well as his signature half-windmill guitar strum in the lines “but I’ve been workin’ on my windmill strum in case you ever come around my way.”

The Song, “Alistair,” was inspired by the photographs as well as a short story about foot fetishes by “Brother” Mike Cohen.
