The hypersensitive, earth-mother, nonbinary hermit Joshua Byron is proud to release their newest work, IDLE COSMOPOLITAN, in conjunction with the unvanquished, incurable ARTLESS MEDIA.
IDLE COSMOPOLITAN is a meditation on not getting married at 21, eating potato chips in bed while writing, and authentic arguments Byron has had with their exes “—–” and “—-“; it includes gay ghosts for the nonlinear-haunted folx. The series is contained in 20 parts, each detailing an encounter of a gay with another gay or a gay with a gay self. The work is PG and does include many folx in hideously cheap costumes with deadpan (dead) humor. The work does not purport to be about our current dictator. It does not purport to have a singular purpose, other than to seduce you. The piece swings through three acts, before the Queer World, the Queer World Advent, and the Eventual Escape to Some New Place. The mythology of the piece may or may not be fully espoused at a further date. The actors — in their collectivity and flubbed lines– were co-creators, resulting in a remix of an already dubiously vague odyssey. The main character is an indecisive millennial with a column and should not be emulated. Many trans folx, artists, academics, and non-artists participated in this lofi potential satire of queer “heartbreak and renewal”. The daily is as important as the rapturous in this diary-like endeavor.
