Bjørn Olsen, a healing psychopath in the golden years of self-recovery, struggles to maintain his cool in Mollyville, an idyllic seaside commune nestled in the green valley of a mountain range jutting out of the sea.
“Everyone is on the edge of killing the stranger they just met or taking them home for a good time. This is romance on a speedball and Maxximillian conveys sexiness, urgency, and flippancy with deft precision.”
In an isolated valley nestled in a mountain range near the sea, Mollyville exists. Rich with cutting-edge technology and abundant in natural resources, Mollyville thrives as a self-policing, paradise community with beaches, cliffs, exotic forests and a system of unknowably vast subterranean caverns that extend beyond sight. Social media is a construct of the past. No emails. No smart phones. No telephones. It’s a whole new world separated from ours by distance, exclusion from world maps, and self-reliance. Mollyville is completely off-the-grid. “Nothing living shall go without love, companionship or care—not a snake, not a tree, not a house—not ever.” It is a covenant all residents have agreed to uphold on a Continue reading

“Income Inequality, Imagine” is one of those pieces that you stand in front of and look at for a long time. I certainly did. It’s very large at 24 feet long, also there’s a lot of shit going on—it’s a scene—three scenes really. “Triptych” is the term she uses to describe the work. A triptych is a work of art divided into three sections. Jordyn’s art tells a story… (and a cautionary tale) #ICYMI I had the pleasure to interview Jordyn (@jordyn_fishman) about her piece “Income Inequality, Imagine” for an episode of Maxximillian Presents: THEMATIC. I hope you’ll check it out. Are you an artist whose art is telling a Continue reading
Eric: Is it the magic of the universe, or a logical explanation? Maxximillian: The magic of the universe is a logical explanation. Eric Schwartz (@ericschwartz) is a quadruple-threat entertainer with multiple albums of original comedic anthems, dozens of videos that you’ll want to watch again and again, a one-hour special that might make you pee your pants, and a live standup show worthy of Carnegie Hall. He writes sketches. He writes comedy. He writes music. He performs live. He’s on tour constantly. But I caught up with him for an hour and we chopped it up into bite sized pieces. I met Eric for the first time 5 years ago Continue reading

The elephant man discovered me, playing in the dirt, near the cotton candy machine—I had already pulled up all the grass and was now throwing handfuls of dirt high up into the air, the way one might launch festive confetti.
Write a story told from the POV of a character directly involved in the action. Now tell a story about the same event from the POV of another character that is either directly or indirectly involved. Finally, retell the story from the POV of a character that is not mentioned in either of the two previous stories but was somehow involved.
I got myself some smart drugs made especially with care for my brain—and I feel like I won something.
