I’m not an artist, any more than I am a writer, philosopher, performer, comedian, musician, chef and father. I’m not an artist anymore than you are. We all like to make things. If you don’t believe me, try making something besides excuses… see how you feel.Todd
A thing does not end, nor begin, with the maker. Things are consumed, produced and consumed again within an aesthetic ecosystem. I nudge my work, encourage it, steer it but I don’t make it from scratch nor do I individually own it. It doesn’t just create a dialogue, it is a dialogue. I am a participant in the conversation. A thread in the tapestry. A rung in the ladder.Todd

We lost our brother Todd Marrone, the heart and soul of UsedWigs Radio, and huge part of our lives. We love Todd and his family more than we can express and we want to celebrate his life, his art and his spirit of sharing. So please mark your calendars and join us on Sunday, April 13, 2014 at the beloved home of UsedWigs Radio, L’etage in Philly.
The show will feature lots of our super talented friends. Dave Hill and Chip Chantry will bring the laughs; Anna Goldfarb, Shrake, Nikki Walter and Kevin Ginsberg will tell some tales; Brian Seymour will play some of Todd’s favorite songs; and Bevan McShea will perform and create live art in honor of his pal Todd. Plus live readings of Todd’s uniquely wonderful and witty thoughts by friends and family.
This will also be a benefit (donation at the door) and we hope to have some lovely pieces of art donated by friends of Todd and our show for a small silent auction.
We look forward to seeing you! Please RSVP now.
