|Shaye & Kiki
Starring: Shaye Saint John
blah,blah,blah,blah..... Anywhoo, to get back to this, um... movie... I think this Shaye & Kiki act might be some kinda performance art because that is the kind of art I do not understand. And I did not in any way understand this video. What would possess someone make a video like this? Would anyone who wasn't under obligation to watch it, want to watch a video like this? These are questions I am not qualified to answer, and for that I am thankful. - the Fabulous Leslie G.
John.com first obtains an unassailable position
of lunacy, from which it dominates the genre. it proscribes a benchmark
weirdness by which all future bla will yadda three times! see for yourself!
Saint John.com sent shivers down my spine. It's hard to tell whether it's
a live act or just produced for the short videos available on the site but
one thing's for sure, it's truly disturbing. It reminds me of the campy
1979 horror film, "Tourist Trap" which scared the crap out of
me as a kid.
It says there will be a Shaye Saint John DVD available soon but I wonder if it's just a hoax. There's not much detailed information on the website but the few movies it offers are well worth watching. I would go out of my way to see this live
am the most studied sufferer in all the world!" - Shaye St. John
I'm not sure exactly what's going under the baby doll mask, the white sheet, the prosthetic limbs, the wig, the wheel chair, and the chirpy child's voice- certainly a creature of some sort, limbless and in the grips of some (understandably) faraway fantasy world, where burned child's toys are her best friends and the shocked looks and gasps of passerby as she gets wheeled through the streets of Hollywood are actually lingering gazes of admiration and adoration. Shaye Saint John is a very disabled person, that's for certain, and these video shorts serve as some sort of salve, a way of connected with the outside world. There is no question about the fine line between madness and genius here- it's madness, plain and simple, dizzying in it's detachment to reality, and flashing with the bright colors of early childhood. In fact, the whole affair seems like the twisted vision of a small child, inventing the rules of gravity and standards of beauty and decorum as they go along. This is a series of shorts, destined for a DVD compilation of Shaye's videos due out next year on Indican. They are impossible to describe, except to say that they are very disturbing, as bile-inducing as a Fulci film, and lysergically profane as Jodorowsky, only without a hint of blood, violence, nudity, cursing, or off-color subject matter of any sort. Just a lone, troubled cripple, having a party in their mind where everyone's invited, but no one shows up. For fans of bizarre bouts of self-expression, Kiki and Shaye is a must-see. Just keep in mind, that you'll be trying to shake it off for hours afterwards.
