GBGC #6: Dancing Barefoot: treading softly upon others' territory

My sister explicitly told me, "Do not touch my Kate or my Patti," but even she was converted to a GBGC fan after realizing that imitation is indeed the best form of flattery. Although it may seem that I handle things in a farcical and lackadaisical manner, I actually pay great attention to detail while making my videos for the bad guitar channel. Whether it be so campy as chopping onions during "...tears in my eyes..." in the previous video, or paying subtle homage to the radiator seen in one of Mapplethorpe's famous images of Patti Smith, my renditions are meant to revere and celebrate the source material.
