RACEHORSE was an idea I had, an alter ego if you like, and was designed to free me of the weight of my own ego by overwhelming it with an ego of unparalleled proportions. And fuck me if it didn't work; performing as Racehorse allowed me a freedom I'd heretofore only dreamed about, namely the freedom to be a complete asshole. Here's a question that I love, as posited by Carlos Fuentes:
Given the choice, is it better to strive to be a better person than you can ever hope to be, say, a Jesus Christ, or is it better to try to follow your nature to where it leads you, even if that's backwards, say, to the state of being of a chimpanzee? Racehorse knew the answer.
