Ok, Ok

So... casting around the other day, I came upon Christine Tarantino's Open Fluxus page, where she mentioned that Allison Knowles was giving a lecture at Radcliffe in Harvard Square. A few messages back and forth and I learned that Reed Altimus was planning to attend as well. So we all met up yesterday afternoon, Christine, her partner Doug, Reed and myself. We were a bit early and Reed and I spent some time catching up and I got to know Christine a bit. Allison started with a slide lecture about Fluxus... not really anything that I wasn't already aware of... then went into a few performances. Radcliffe girls all singing a different song at the same time... Radcliffe girls all reading from different newspapers in different languages with Allison conducting the volume (sometimes for all and sometimes for just a few). I thoroughly enjoyed it and was glad that I'd found Christine's announcement of the event. Afterwards there was a reception where Reed approached Allison to get her to sign a vintage chapbook of her scores (she was surprised to see this). I went to get Allison a glass of wine and found myself shaking trying to bring it to her (what was that about???). From there, I escorted our small crowd down to the Plough and Stars, where we had another beverage before everyone headed home. There were pictures of us all on Christine's Open Fluxus page by 10:30 (not bad, considering they had a 2 hour drive.
Take a look...

Sounds like a fluxus night out if ever there was one! I guess the shakes were due to the exitement of the whole thing Jonathan. Delerium tremens? Maybe you have been spending too much time down at the Plough & Stars?

I'm off to see the photo now. I havent had much to do with the Open Fluxus lot as FaceBook has rather taken over my social nutworking - basically all the same poeple there anyway!
