There’s an article about my Ghetto Frida billboard/mural up at Mission Loc@l. I had a great time being interview by reporter Kate Kilpatrick. As it turns out she was the editor of Black Like Me a column run in the Philadelphia Weekly written by one of my heroes, Jayson Musson.
The recent press for Ghetto Frida’s Mission Memories has made me think a lot about the boundaries that exist between my public and private selves. Last night, after a long day of doing graphic work I decided to make one of my infamous lip-sync videos set to Private’s Secret Lover (Starsmith Remix). These lip-sync videos are the kind of personal media that I only usually post on facebook. At the moment I’ve been stuck trying to define what the boundaries are between my various online representations. Recently, I’ve had really interesting conversations with friends who have had to rethink their online expressions because of career and familial expectations. I’m beginning to feel the same pressures…But tonight I’m saying FUCK IT and kicking out the jams.
