I am Edie Sedgwick and this is my little corner of the web.
A room of my own where I gather my thoughts and explore my aesthetic.
Enjoy.

My drum studies continue in prepartion for my 09.11.07 show. I have mastered the kick and snare drums. This weekend, I must concentrate on the hi-hat and ride cymbal. That leaves Monday to master the floor tom, and I should be good to go.

I watched “The Sarah Silverman Show” on Comedy Central today. The show was not “live”—I ordered it “On Demand” via Comcast. I’m not sure why I demanded “The Sarah Silverman Show.” I was curious about her unique brand of sexy racist toilet humor, I suppose.

Sarah Silverman emphasizes that the characters on her show do not learn lessons and do not grow/mature. In the 1990’s, “Seinfeld” pioneered this “no-learning” aesthetic and midwifed the postmodern sitcom. In 2007, so many shows now emulate “Seinfeld’s” no-learning aesthetic that, every once and awhile, I wish that sitcom characters did grow/mature. Fortunately, “Everybody Loves Raymond” and “Friends” are still syndicated. Thus, there is ample opportunity for Ross, Rachel, Phoebe, Monica, Chandler, Joey, Raymond, his wife, his mother, his grouchy father, his numerous children and I to grow/mature together.
