Photos by Adam Gardiner
VICE approached me about doing a PIEFOLK piece online.
I said, sure.
A reporter named Kristin Yoonsoo Kim came over. She hung out with me and a few friends while we baked and talked about religion, atheism, oppression and internet stalkers.
We made meat pies. Pulled pork braised with Kim chi, nectarines, and broccoli.
There was a salon party after. People showed up and ate pie, drank whiskey, and sang songs. There were comedy pieces. Poems were read. It was a lively evening.
Adam Gardiner was nice enough to take these photos. They are stunning.
Ben Lerman sang ukulele songs.
Marcos Sanchez played a few Thin Skin Jonny songs with me.
Will Choy read a comedy piece.
Robbie Fowler sang a Lady Gaga song, mashed up with Guns and Roses.
Kevin Michael Murphy sang from a musical comedy he wrote.
Jon Flor Sisante broke everyone’s hearts with this song:
Everyone had a blast, and there was singing and spontaneous ruckus raising afterward.
There was a good vibe in the air. People seemed generous and warm all night.
I was happy I’d invited the people I did.
Paolo Raymundo designed me a couture apron. I was so sheepish about it. It was flattering.
I’m grateful to Adam for these gorgeous photos. Thanks for making it an amazing party.
You guys were great.
