I was innocently reading a thing about the Beats in NYC, when I came across the name Genesis P-Orridge.

What a story! Genesis Breyer P-Orridge is an artist/provocateur who decided to turn himself into his wife, a dominatrix known at Lady Jaye. They spent $200,000 on surgery and other procedures, in an effort to turn themselves into identical beings who would then metaphorically become a Third Person. Or something.

Lady Jaye died before the project was completed but P-Orridge now refers to him/her self as “we.”

Read more here, or google his/her/their name to find more images. Or maybe everyone already knows about this, just like the ponies. No one ever tells me anything!

    Love you too guys – what a love feast – and they say we are just “hating on”. How UNTRUE!

    I was never sure with Genesis whether he was just out to “epater le bourgeois” (including his own bourgeois self) or had indeed gone into room 23 in the house of Fluxus, closed the door behind him and decided to live a complete life of DeCoherence Art(tm) , occasionally yelling out the window to let us know what was going on. Especially when the man waves the metal detector round him at the airport.
