  • On July 4th, 2009 I was in London studying acting at The Royal Academy of Dramatic Art. It was Independence Day in America, and it was also Gay Pride Day in England. I had just been to see a play called "The Mountaintop" on the far side of London above a pub. Two weeks later it ended up on the West End and a year later on Broadway. But anyway, as I left the Gay Pride celebration, I came across the piece of art imbedded in a nondescript wall. It's a print of Michael Jackson, who had recently died, in front of a Goldfish in a Blender. There was a little contraption hooked up to the blender that said, push me. Fortunately, for the fish it was behind a glass window, so he was safe from the throngs. It was a lot of fun to just stay there and watch people's reactions as they walked by.
