the fugazi of porn

18Jun05

because my pal pt has always been a trendsetter in these things, i’ve been somewhat immersed in “maker” culture the past few years. it’s all about people who would rather make what they believe is the right thing, tool, art, document rather than consume what someone else has created for them. i find it all rather inspiring. i try to make things, but yes, i also obsess about consuming others- most makers do.

tonight i went to go see “made in secret.” it’s an excellent documentary about a collective of folks in vancouver who make their own porn. it’s not classic scene after scene of skinny girl and her too big fake boobs and some well hung dude. it actually stars the people in the collective, who range from suicide girl to nerdy but fit professor guy to zaftig dyke grrrl. and they actually try make a movie that happens to have sex as opposed to a movie that only has sex. they tell stories. and the documentary really exposes what they do in a very enlightened way. so much so that they invite the documentary maker to join the collective.

go make something. porn, music, a mess, whatever.
