Decker to read at California Center for the Performing Arts

April 15, 2008

So I’m doing this thing at the California Center for the Arts, Escondido next week (Sunday, April 20) that I wanted to let y’all know about. In a nutshell, 8 artists of varying genres will perform in support of an art exhibition currently showing at the CCAE gallery called Innocence is Questionable.

Some of the performing categories will be dance, theater, music, performance art, poetry and satire, the last being the genre that was chosen for me.

Ha, how does one “perform” satire?

Anyway, for more info visit the San Diego Visual Arts Network.



  1. I’m sure you’ll do a great job, Ed. Satire looks good on you. I’m actually going to be down south this Sunday – unfortunately, it’s to cover a horse show for the magazine I write for, so I’ll be stuck in Del Mar all day. Otherwise, I’d come by and applaud wildly.

    Break a leg!

  2. Ha, how does one “perform” satire?

    Get really high drunk first? I mean, it is April 20, you know. And then just get up and talk about whatever comes to mind. Do your great Harvey Fierstein impression while reading from the Old Testament nude save for a tight sheath of Saran Wrap?

    Or is that a little too mainstream for you?

  3. How about I get up there and say something like, “Hey people, your painting’s suck. Art sucks. Life sucks. Do Heroin and maybe it’ll get better.”

  4. Better yet, since you’re talking about heroin ….

    On second thought, no.

    Well, okay.

    A general note: Stop reading now. That’s right, just move on to the next post. Stop reading right now and nobody gets hurt.

    So, anyway, get up there and tell people that, on the weekends, you like to inject yourself with watercolors. Except what you tell them is that you’re not putting the colors into your bloodstream.

    Tell them you carefully inject the colors into your bladder and then urinate onto rice paper. All you need for prep is some rice paper, a watercolor set, and a squirt gun. I’m sure you can figure out the rest.

    And then you can just make up whatever you want to go with it. Like the time you shot LSD into your bladder thinking it would make you piss colors at random. Or how, after eating some bad Punjabi, you were inspired to create your infamous “Wavy Gravy” series.

    And if you can do the whole thing with the voice and meter of Graham Chapman doing “Japes” at Hollywood Bowl, all the better.

  5. Have you stopped seeing your shrink BD?

  6. Well, I get my meds from Milton Keynes. Flip a coin.
