Lindsay Beebe : The Nightmare Doesn't Care
Lindsay Beebe is a force to be reckoned with, a renaissance woman of the wildest variety. This video is from a reading she gave at Printed Matter from her book The Nightmare Doesn't Care published by 100%.
The description of the book of poems from the 100% website:
The Nightmare Doesn't Care is an anthology of poems and drawings by artist, musician, and performer Lindsay Beebe, whose work frames violence, humor, sex and politics within her own unique post-hippy, post-punk outlook. Written in Beebe's homespun slang vernacular, these raw, earthy poems produce a dream-like fusion of the urban and rural, inspired by experiences ranging from a hung-over job interview to an epiphany in the woods. Marrying the anti-establishment toilet humor of The Fugs’ lyrics with the manic, carnal, and emotional tones of Kathy Acker’s writing, Beebe's poems embody the legacy of a particular American underground sensibility.
