I am going to see Miranda July tonight at City Arts & Lectures here in SF. I am pretty excited. I waffle back on forth on her — but ultimatley really love everything that she does. I think she's got a brilliant mind. I read a New York Times article this summer, where the writer brings up that some people find her terribly annoying because of who she is and that she is often judged in a sexist light. Her response is awesome and so Miranda July (she is referring to being compared to Noah Baumbach and Wes Anderson):
“All those men are also personal. I don’t mind that, but I do mind that it’s not really questioned, whereas I or another woman is looked at as so self-obsessed. Men are just not being judged in the same way. They’re never going to be annoying in the same way.”
It's either going to be really good or really annoying in a super great way.
