Interviewed by Lesbian Police Officer
Tig Notaro, the lesbian police officer on The Sarah Silverman Program, interviews Geologist, the lesbian noisemaker from Animal Collective. They talk about the group’s film ODDSAC as well as Geologist’s balls. Yep, it’s appropriately weird, set sometime around Sundance 2010 (where the film premiered) in what appears to be some bar. Beautiful camerawork, too.
