STORY
freestars.gif

One of our favorite shows was called Get Fresh! It was an immersive interactive art show to razzle all the senses. We played this song, “If Birds Gathered Our Hair For Nesting at It” at it. Julia, a scent architect, supplied personal aromas. Touch artists, Michelle Christiance & Emmanuel, blindfolded people at the toothbooth and brushed their teeth. Has anyone ever had their teeth brushed by anyone other than their mom/babysitter? It’s kind of like a feet washing, or an oral baptism. If you don't want to get your teeth touched, stay home and brush your own teeth. Tastes were provided by the venue and featured the classic cocktails that we serve at many of our shows: Cosmic Pineapple & Moon Hammer. Visuals by all attendees: you are the art if you want to hang around the eye gazing booth. Lauren, Piper, and Micah’s eyes were gaze-able and anyone was welcome to provide their eyes and become the visual art. This was back when déCollage's shows told the story of Finding Nemo on acid.

LYRICS

oh oh oh yea oh yea yea oh yabadabadabadeeda

I left you a note I wrote with my fingers and spilt coffee,

On the counter in the kitchen, next to the dinner bell of dried bagels.

I left you a note I wrote with my fingers and my hair,

On the wall in the shower, furry like animals

What if birds gathered our hair for nesting

And we shared all we think we own, but we don’t and act like we do.

“Carnal Canary, how’s your sleepin? How ya livin?”

“It’s a tweet tweet, chirp chirp chirp, honk honk, yeah”

When I go down to the watering hole,

Half my hair falls out; I guess I’ll stick it to the shower wall.

There’s Marcel in poverty with no nest and no home,

Let’s gather our hair in player piano rolls and cigar boxes.

Layla said, “Style is just the exploitation of limitation.”

And “Spoons make the best mirrors, but tend to turn you inside out.”

You rippled your wrinkles and spilled me your secrets

And we joked and hugged and cried our tears inside out.

You rippled your wrinkles and spilled me your secrets

And we joked and hugged and cried our tears inside out.

“Nightingale Menagerie, how’s your sleepin? How ya livin’?”

“It’s a tweet tweet, chirp chirp, honk honk, yeah”

Oh oh, yea yea, oh yaba daba daba daba daba
