Happy Birthday Laurie Anderson

I love this quote! “Paradise is exactly like where you are right now…only much, much
better.”  Acerbic, brilliant and self-effacing, New York performance artist Laurie Anderson has earned a long list of positive adjectives and jubilant superlatives over the past 35 years. Born today in 1947, Laurie evolved to offer these awarenesses: “A lot of the work in United States is highly critical of technology. I’m using 15,000 watts of power and 18 different pieces of electronic equipment to say that.” and “I see and write things first as an artist, second as a woman, and third as a New Yorker. All three have built-in perspectives that aren’t neutral.” and “My work is more about trying to ask good questions and not trying to come up with big shows. Every fashion company is doing that, every car company is doing that.” and “People only stutter at the beginning of the word. They’re not afraid when they get to the end of the word. There’s just regret.” and “Writing about music is like dancing about architecture.” Laurie presently is touring Europe. See Laurie say, “I’m a spy.” O Superman is still a minimalist masterpiece as is Kokoku.
