LAST WILDNESS UNTIL THE WORLD TURNS RIGHTSIDE UP AGAIN
it was just like that.
so the last wildness b4 indefinite hiatus just happened at grand star in chinatown. for those who are just tuning in here is why and why.
thank you one thousand sweaty bodies showing up and throwing ur dollars to support Koky's legal fees. we're not done with this chapter yet. but i can tell you officially wildness is over for the foreseeable future. it's a huge personal bummer for me and crew but the love IS FELT SO MUCH. thank you!!!

whoever this guy is next to me FEELS IT JUST AS HARD
AND DEN WE BURNNNNNNNNNED
pulling up the last cords of the piano last night, i said to ashland "i like HATE throwing parties" and he was like "ME TOO" - meaning loading all your shit into a random bar and trying to make it a fun place for folks to gather... BLESS US we actually NEVER had to do that until last night. i don't think i can ever express the extreme specialness of our relationship to the Silver Platter - especially through Koky Javier and Nicol. i was reminded of that like 1 million times last night, standing on the outside of the bar unable to get even our performer a free drink. boss man counting all his dollars and telling us hurry get all our stuff out. not that he was an uncool dude but IT'S JUST BUSINESS. thank god for the life of wildness it was never business and our thing got to be free because Koky and everyone shared EVERYTHING with us and supported us to the max. it never felt like throwing a party - it felt like opening our home and inviting all our friends in. i know it may seem sentimental and idealistic, but that was actually my experience. obvz it may not have been the experience of everyone who ever attended wildness, and i know to many people it was just another hip party (or worse for the haters) but i do believe that our special experience extended through at least a few layers of the community. do i dare to say that wildness built community. a community that is now without a place to exist - so it will end. as everything does... and i feel LUCKIEST to have taken part.
the SILVER PLATTER is a BUILDING full of PEOPLE (really gay transsexual brown people!) - and it will always be TOTAL MAGIC.
may it live forever and for fucks sake can Koky and Javier please be allowed to rejoin the family so that we wildness children can come home. there i said it once, it's my birthday wish, now i will hold my peace for whatever will be will be.
last kicks before OHIO/wexner ho...
