j7A3DX  zsxkvaxplphqSEjZV0  sllcigknnmfbI lived with Shane when he at Reed. Shane became our house maganer shortly after I moved into the  House of the Angry Goddess’. The Goddess was this painting on the inside of our refrigerator, that a previous resident had painted. During our stay at the house, Shane always had the sharpest new names for the place, and designed invites for our house gatherings with photocopies and cut-ups.I relished wide ranging conversations with Shane while we cooked dinner. Shane was the vegan of the house, and he would cook up kale or chard regularly, always offering to share. Never did develop a taste for sherry, but  Shane certainly liked to sip his glass after dinner.Cocteau Twins would be played loudly at home, particularly if Shane had some sweeping to do. Shane was by far the tidiest one in our abode.@Craig Thanks for sharing the  Dada’ story   it was one of those moments that is hard to forget, and it was a prank of pure Shane inspiration. Shane was always setting up memorable moments with his art, to elicit reactions from those around him. The  Dada’ story was but one. It is so nice to see more recent photos and work Shane did, as he clearly developed delightful forms of expression in the places he moved onto from Portland.Shane had this way of listening intently, looking at you unblinkingly, and waiting for you to have your say before responding. Always with a either a charming smile and a laugh, or a rational, logically inspired point of view, Shane was a delight. I loved talking with Shane, whether it was discussing relativity, or learning from him of philosophy or John Waters films.At the time, Shane had a habit of clipping one of his fountain pens to his shirt, at the neck, before he walked on. There are many shots like this, where I think of his manner, and our conversations, and I miss him dearly.
