I somehow felt that I was keeping something from you.

By not telling you.

How completely OBSESSED I am

with Lady Gaga’s new “Bad Romance” video:

I wish I could tell you why. Besides the fact that I seem to be moving deeper into a worship of Gaga. And maybe for today it is simply enough to admit that I am obsessed with this video/song. And I would be lying if I tried to imagine that this won’t somehow enter the creative process.

Maybe we’ll wear diamonds.
Or Alexander McQueen.
And we’ll undress.
And dance.
To Gaga.

There is a music mash-up happening . . . I’m not sure if it is “for” the piece or just for “rehearsals.” But it goes like this:

“Intro Versailles” by Reitzell/Beggs from the Marie Antoinette soundtrack
“Caddis” by ISAN from “Lucky Cat”
“Poker Face (Space Cowboy Remix)” by Lady Gaga from “Poker Face (remixes)”
“Bad Romance” by Lady Gaga (single)
“Gwely Mernans” by Aphex Twins from Drukqs

We’ll see what that turns into.
