“It’s about a man who cannot die and he's bored, because he's done everything and eternity’s a drag… What if your bucket list was nine miles long but you had checked every box, sometimes even twice. I live very urgently because I'm trying to get stuff done, but the guy in the movie is the opposite."

"We're just in the beginning phases of it so I can barely share anything about it because we haven't created it yet. But the story is going to be fictionalized and then at some point down the next 10 years I can envision myself creating a one-person show where I can really get into the subtleties and the stories, but for this particular musical it will be a fictionalized story and we'll add songs and change lyrics."
Alanis Morissette is in the process of creating a musical based around her 1995 album Jagged Little Pill. Get in line, people! (Billboard)

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
