14868Re: [thewire] Miranda July is fluff
- May 8, 2002i've never seen her perform live--only heard her albums, which i love, and
seen one of her short films. this isn't her work, but the short film
collection "I Saw Bones," with works culled from the Big miss Moviola project,
has some gems in it. I'm not very familiar with Laurie Anderson's work
(except for a couple of tracks I've heard from her), but I'll be sure to check
it out. In any case, I don't worship her: I simply enjoy what I've heard and
seen of her work.
