|Introduction||Evie Singer-Frishman, is an American/Israeli, punk rock Buddhist, queer, poly, trans dyke, and poet/spoken word artist. Informed by the likes of Gary Snyder, T'ao Ch'ien and Julia Serano, Ms. Singer- Frishman's poems refuse to hang the reader up with ego driven, adjective weighted lines, and instead, draw them into intimate moments of transformation, where words themselves become secondary, and one is left haunted by the feeling that the experience on the page had been ones' own all along. Her past writings have appeared in multiple editions of Metromorphosis and Public Illumination Magazine, as well as on velvetparkmedia.com. Evie's first book of poetry, "Things Missed in Exile", is available either through Nirala Publishing, or from the author at readings or by request. A limited number of signed copies are currently available through St. Mark's Books, in New York. Evie shares her two homes with her primary partner, Carrie, and a very tenacious houseplant. The two live between NYC, and Kerhonkson, in the Catskill mountains of Upstate New York. She performs her spoken word throughout New York, and can be booked for special engagements.|
|Interests||NEW MANIFESTO FOR CREATIVE EXPRESSIONISTS We the creators, pledge to adopt and adapt the following: -To imagine new outlets of expression -To break former boundries created both by ourselves and others -To reset parameters so that other less brave or less creative individuals can express themselves within them, while they’re learning themselves and growing their own brave senses of self expression -Not to be ruled by preconceived notions of ourselves, our world, or our artforms -Not to be confined to only one venue of expression when we might find another medium or style to be more fitting at any given time -Never to be confined by any external genre, subculture, religion or platform To add to this list as necessary or desired. Together, we will create a movement of forward movement in creative expression, and no, that wasn't a typo. We will not be ruled in our expression by any central person, style or other dictum. We will recognize that only by being true to ourselves, can we be truly artistically free.|
Do you believe that forks are evolved from spoons?
No; originally in most western cultures, the point of the knife was used to pick up solid food, and spoons were reserved for soup, stew, and Milky; therefore, it's my contention that in fact, forks evolved from the points of knives, and possibly pitch forks.
