The past two years have treated author/spoken-word/performance artist Miranda July kindly. After a well-fawned over feature film debut as idiosyncratic screenwriter-star-director, and a Zen-site that in some ways has overshadowed the book it was constructed to promote (and another in the works for a hugs and kisses project), what’s happening this very instant? A herky-jerky starring spot in Blonde Redhead’s new video, put together by (boyfriend still? No matter.) Thumbsucker director Mike Mills (previously). Somewhere in the future timeline, a backlash seems imminent.
