Billy the Mime is working through some things. What they are, exactly, I don't want to guess.
If you are in Los Angeles, you can come help Xeni and I figure it out at this Saturday's 2 Headed Dog show, February 18, 2017 at the Steve Allen Theatre.
Billy knows this is a messed-up world, even if the people around him don't. He is a master of movement, space work, and sarcasm. Who doesn't love a nihilist Mime sharing irony and suffering without making a sound?
Billy also paints portraits, mostly of himself. While the work itself is reminiscent of a younger Gustav Klimt, perhaps aged 3 to 5, Billy's ability to smuggle it into Los Angeles area museums is without parallel. Keep your eyes open in the city of angels and you might just come across a Billy original.
Billy the Mime will be silently wowing the crowds at this Saturday's 2 Headed Dog show.

Over at Salon, Mitch writes about the right wing’s weird connection to New Age mysticism: (Bannon) professed deep interest in the book’s themes, and encouraged me in my next work, “One […]
Bamboo has lots of uses beyond just being panda food. Things like bikes, roads, scaffolding, and musical instruments are made from the fast-growing grass. But unless you are participating in a tropical-themed LARP, you probably wouldn’t want a shirt made from bamboo stalks. So why do bamboo bed sheets make any sense? Because yarn extracted from […]
If you want to work in tech, but don’t have any desire to code web apps to help businesses sell things to other business, you might want to consider a career in cybersecurity. Judging from the apparent complete infiltration of Russian hackers in American cyberspace, it seems fair to speculate that there’s a major shortage of […]
All moms are different. But all moms like getting flowers on Mother’s Day, and that’s a fact (not, however a fact we can document in any fashion.) Instead of getting chewed out for forgetting to call her on the second Sunday of May, you can take care of it ahead of time with Teleflora’s flower […]
