There was an event that happened this week in Los Angeles in which just about every artist friend I have around my age was in attendance: the Pete and Pete Reunion and Polaris concert.  I LOVE Pete and Pete.  This was one of those seminal shows that introduced tiny little child me to subculture and absurdity and indie music and awkward beauty.  It’s one of those things, like Kids in the Hall and Mr. Show later on, that defined my taste in entertainment and maybe even shaped a little bit of my personality.
Being at this thing was nuts, and realizing how pivotal this low-budget children’s show was not only to me, but to an entire creative industry, made it feel extra special.  It fostered a whole generation of artsy weirdos and I’m so happy to be a part of that community.  Thanks, Pete and Pete!
