If you are a fan of these pages, then you might be interested to know I will be appearing as a guest on artist John Kilduff's 'Let's Paint TV' show, on Adelphia/Time Warner Cable in the Eagle Rock, Santa Monica, Beverly Hills, West Hollywood and West LA areas on Wednesday 16th and Wednesday 23rd of August, at 9pm. That's Primetime, and so you might have to switch off 'LOST' or whatever re-run you're watching.
Let's Paint TV is hosted by the artist John Kilduff, (see Outsideleft's, Happy Shopper #4), painting while exercising on his paint-splattered treadmill. He's even considering changing the name of the show to 'Let's Paint and Exercise TV', and quipped recently that as he now COOKS on the show, while painting, and exercising, he is considering changing the show's title to Let's Paint, Exercise, and Cook TV. Whatever the show is called, whether he's painting, tripping from the treadmill, frying snickers bars or doing it all at the same time, 'Let's Paint TV' remains the most anarchic and original comic half-hour left on television. There's simply nothing like it, nothing so entertaining on the dial.
John's constant accompaniment on the show the house band, Frozen Plastic a synthesizer duo akin to a sleepy Suicide. Alan Vega fans take note.
On the show, while John paints my portrait, while exercising, while cooking, I read episodes from Lake's 'Behind the Counterculture' series, which first appeared on this site, some also showed up in The First Outsideleft Hardy Annual, and will be collected for a special edition, to be published by the SideCartel towards the end of 2006.
John Kilduff has produced well over 400 episodes since its inception in 2001. Guests include: Saddam Hussein, Santa Claus, Bill Wyatt (presidential candidate), JFK ceramic bust, Tuba the Clown,Sheila-Sheila of the Jungle, watermelon, chocolate cake, rock bands Los Cremators, Carnivorous Birds, and Mannlicher Carcano. Clips from the show have appeared on ITV's "TV's Naughtiest Blunders" (UK) and TLC's "Ballroom Bootcamp" and on The USA Network (view clip)

Outsideleft exists on a precarious no budget budget. We are interested in hearing from deep and deeper pocket types willing to underwrite our cultural vulture activity. We're not so interested in plastering your product all over our stories, but something more subtle and dignified for all parties concerned. Contact us and let's talk. [HELP OUTSIDELEFT]
If Outsideleft had arms they would always be wide open and welcoming to new writers and new ideas. If you've got something to say, something a small dank corner of the world needs to know about, a poem to publish, a book review, a short story, if you love music or the arts or anything else, write something about it and send it along. Of course we don't have anything as conformist as a budget here. But we'd love to see what you can do. Write for Outsideleft, do. [SUBMISSIONS FORM HERE]
