If you've been to NYC and completed your sexual tourism of the East Village bars and LES Grindr options, you've probably had to listen to your tricks talk about East Village artists like SCOOTER before you get them to pull down their pastel American Apparels so you can finger their ripe bungholes.
Big Shoe Diaries' Minister of Propaganda spent his May Day catching up with LaForge to revisit the drunken conversations that were only half-listened to the last time he hooked up with an East Village hottie.
KM:What compels you to make art?
SL: i manage to destroy everything else.
KM: When did you first call yourself an artist? SL: oh no we don't do that..
KM: How did it feel? SL: like i am a dumb-ass
KM: What artists inspire you? SL: a titty, bower birds, Satan, feet, black smith, jesus juice, casper the friendly ghost, and testes.
KM: Why? SL: cause they are sexy, smart and invisible and can fly and they make milky white substance.
KM: What's your relationship to the erotic in your own work or in work that you like?
SL: I read and beat off to a lot of comic books... I love muscles and skinny people and superheros and I am available for dating.
If you're in New York, check out SCOOTER's current show and everyone can check out his stuff at the Patricia Fields store.
