True West Goes to New York City to see True West

January 5, 2019
   Heading to New York City today to see this Broadway play:

   Opposites attack in Sam Shepard’s Pulitzer Prize-nominated play about two brothers with more in common than they think. Holed up in their mother’s California house, lowlife Lee (Ethan Hawke) and screenwriter Austin (Paul Dano) wrestle with big issues—and each other. Order vs. chaos. Art vs. commerce. Typewriter vs. toaster...Shepard’s rip-roaring classic returns to Broadway, gleefully detonating our misguided myths of family, identity and the American Dream.

   Sam had the courtesy to contact True West magazine about using the title in his play, and so, this week I am returning the favor and buying two tickets to the play with the same title as our venerable magazine.

Out On The Mojave

   Meanwhile, got some rippin' trippin' images for my special project taking shape later this month:

 Daily Whip Out:
"Olive Sequence Extraordinaire"

Daily Whip Out:
"In The Shadow of The Mojave #6"

   The desert itself is a character. Out on the Mojave where water changes everything.

Daily Whip Out:
"Out On The Mojave"

Daily Whip Out:
"Dust Storm Over The Needles"

   I finally have an inkling, or, dare I say—understanding—of where this story is going.

"The key to good decision making is not knowledge. It is understanding. We are swimming in the former. We are desperately lacking in the latter."
—Malcolm Gladwell
