"All of that…has helped me form what I call my 70 Percent Rule for decision-making. … If we just wrest our eyes, literally and figuratively, from our digital gizmos and the shitty, spoiling impatience they instill, we’ll see that this life, this planet, is amazing. That it is something just to be in the world, seeing and hearing and smelling. That for trillions of miles in every direction from earth, life really is blood-boilingly, eye-explodingly horrific. These situations where I can’t make a choice because I’m too busy trying to envision the perfect one—that false perfectionism traps you in this painful ambivalence: If I do this, then that other thing I could have done becomes attractive. But if I go and choose the other one, the same thing happens again. It’s part of our consumer culture. …So my rule is that if you have someone or something that gets 70 percent approval, you just do it. ‘Cause here’s what happens. The fact that other options go away immediately brings your choice to 80. Because the pain of deciding is over. And…when you get to 80 percent, you work. You apply your knowledge, and that gets you to 85 percent! And the thing itself, especially if it’s a human being, will always reveal itself—100 percent of the time!—to be more than you thought. And that will get you to 90 percent. After that, you’re stuck at 90, but who the fuck do you think you are, a god? You got to 90 percent? It’s incredible!”

"You’ve got to embrace discomfort…It’s the only way you can put yourself in situations where you can learn, and the only way you can keep your senses fresh once you’re there."

"I’ve never been suicidal…But I’ve wanted to be.”

This is an obliterating genius, an absurd, self-disgusted, generous, horny, inquisitive, belligerent, deep-felt, smart-stupid, bare-naked, vulgar, deeply ruminative, face-fuckingly frank genius. “

Walked by here on my way from a meeting. Wanted to stay and never leave. The specter of Occupy nowhere. For now.

Los Angeles-based artist and comedian Kevin Christy explores pop culture with bristling and impeccable wit. Curating for MOCAtv Christy selects three cringe-worthy videos self-produced by accidental buffoons—better known as YouTube fails.

With a characteristic mix of ridicule and admiration, Christy celebrates the public humiliation of Toronto’s mayor Rob Ford, the bulge of an ice-jumper who fails to break through, and the “meta” cred of a you-tube rapper who passes out mid-flow.

Setup for a performance: Webcam for Skype filming a monitor of a VHS camcorder filming the screens of an iPhone and iPad, behind which I will ask people in Amsterdam to tweet to me about…something (TBD), which I will then respond to. Serious but not too serious, funny but not too funny.
