- Vermin Supreme sent me an email from which I quote:


As  you may know Dec 19 is the 10 year anniversary of me becoming a meme (by dumping glitter on Randall Terry's head). 

A memeversarry if you will.

As such I am seizing the week from Dec12 - Dec19 and declaring it VermemeSuprmememeversarry Week!!!


I am using this hypeversarry as an opportunity to highlight the documenterian/collaborative work of those that have documented me over the years .

If you can help 'produce' an 'episode' for this limited 'series', I would be much obliged.



& so I was delighted to do so. Having made "Vermin Supreme, His Humble Beginnings" several years ago using the Vermin-related materials in my aRCHIVE (- on my onesownthoughts YouTube channel here: https://youtu.be/9GmNOHKbRyY - on the Internet Archive here: https://archive.org/details/VerminSupremeHisHumbleBeginnings ) it was easy to break that into 25 parts roughly 2.5 to 5.5 minutes long. The idea was for Vermin & myself to talk in between these excerpts.

I picked out 26 political t-shirts from my wardrobe to wear during the talking sections & a few mostly unusual instruments & some old Vermin Supreme posters & my folder of Vermin Supreme Mail Art to use as props to further make these talking sections interesting & fun. I also located myself in the science fiction & poetry section of my personal library where an abundance of Vermin Supreme bumper sticks are located on the side of a file cabinet so that those could help set the mood. As it happened, there was more talking than there was screening of Humble Beginnings excerpts (we only screened the 1st 11 of the 25 segments) but that was fine - to me, the live portion was what was most important given that the movie's already available on-line.

The talking mostly covered activities & people for the 1st decade that Vermin & I knew each other, roughly 1982-1992. I played a few instruments in a desultory manner, showed off some of the t-shirts, Vermin promoted his hilarious merch, & we both reveled in the more absurd end of life - with quite a bit of veteran anarchist trickster political activist history thrown in for good measure. I was particularly entertained by some of the content I hadn't encountered before - such as the cartoon Vermin head's speech at the beginning. Thanks to Tyler Lindsey for his production. I augmented the document from the live program by adding images relevant to what was being talked about - particularly making the t-shirts more readable.

Even though this was streamed I'm not sure how many people actually witnessed it live because, for one thing, the Twitch stream didn't happen. As such, here's an opportunity for the world (& some of its people) to enjoy this unique event before everyone's subsumed into a superorganism & nothing matters anymore except for making the powerful more powerful & eliminating any possibility of free thinking altogether.
