Shitty Interview No.43
It was almost 4 months ago that we met with eccentric New York based artist/designer/model/actor/musician, James Concannon & did this shitty interview over some beers. But we have only just found the interview sheets this week since we have only just finished unpacking.
James is one of the most interesting people we have ever met. His life from the outside seems like one weird & wonderful adventure after the next, but James delivers his memoirs like they are just another day in the life.
When we asked James what he has been up to since we met, here is what he told us…
“I was invited to Thailand by Paz De La Huerta to star in a film in which we were both fired. Spent my 2 months there instead creating two art shows, archiving & interviewing contemporary queer culture, holding a one-man coup against the Bangkok Metropolitan Waterworks Authority for equal and free rights to drinkable water, fully immersed myself in hell, and exited victoriously.”
And to sum up the last year…
-James was awarded ‘Top 10 zine of the year’ by Autre Magazine for his 46 page self published book composed of his own personal dick pics called ‘Machismo’.
-Lady Gaga wore his clothes for a while but never credited him.
– His been in 14 solo & group art shows over the last year spanning the world. (trying to double that in 2016)
– He is currently recording an EP (as the drummer) with his new band ‘Macaroni Tacoma’ (macaronitacoma.bandcamp.com) & hopefully going on a month long tour soon.
– His favourite part; He has an 8 month old son.
You can definitely expect way more cool shit for 2016!!! But for now, please enjoy our shitty interview with James Concannon.
