feel the burn

Though I don’t partake myself, I am totally and completely down with the expansion of one’s consciousness through the use of hallucinogenic substances. Furthermore, I would guess that a rather large percentage of the art, music, and film that has so profoundly moved me and informed both my personal, as well as my professional, life was either conceived or created with the assistance of something snorted, smoked, shot, or slugged. Sometimes the only way through is BEYOND.

With that said, I JUST DON’T GET the infernal tripfest known as Burning Man. Perhaps I am old. Perhaps I am tired. Perhaps I am just fucking NO — but let me tell you something, Mein Poppets…if I ever want to go a whole week without warshing my vagina, whilst sitting in a vegan bronze and pleather steampunk lawnchair sipping absinthe in the sweltering, dusty desert surrounded by naked Road Warrior guys with greasy assholes and their nuts painted ochre, I’LL DO IT IN THE COMFORT OF MY OWN BACKYARD, thank you very much — though I have to admit I WOULD LOVE to have the baby wipe concession up in that motherfucker.

BURN ON, BABY…and don’t forget to bury your byproducts after you stagger off and squat in your very own place in the sun.

About muffybolding

Muffy Bolding is a mother/writer/actor/knitter/feminist/withered debutante who likes the smell of asparagus pee, and remains obsessed with the bathroom hygiene of her three children -- despite the fact that they are 23, 19, and 16. She is blissfully married to a cute Jewish boy who looks like Willie Wonka, but remains tragically in love with the dead poet, Ted Hughes. She has the mouth of a Teamster, and her patron saint is Rocco (pestilence relief.) Ms. Bolding lives in Southern California, where she enjoys typing words, making movies, and plucking the rings from the fingers of the dead. She was the co-creator and Editor-in-Chief of the award winning satire zine, Fresno Lampoon, and in between writing screenplays, carnival barking, and savagely threatening her trio of darling larvae with a wooden spoon, she currently publishes the zine, "Withered Debutante." More of her work can also be found in the anthology, "Mamaphonic: Balancing Motherhood and Other Creative Acts", the compilation zine, "Mamaphiles III: Coming Home", as well as in The Cortland Review and hipmama.com. She is currently writing and producing for film and television, and working on a book of essays entitled, "Inside A Chinese Dragon." She has slept around, but not nearly as much as she would have liked.
