Man of Plastic

My threes of readers will undoubtedly know that I will occasionally work out with that fine piece of “engineering” known as a bowflex. I was working out today — attempting to sculpt my doughy, clay like form into the attractively chiseled proportions of a Greek god or a Californian governor. Imagine my surprise when straining […]

Brilliant!

Mark-Steffen Göwecke’s Polaroid photography is such a brilliant concept, I weep not to have thought of it myself: All began in 1996 in Bretany, France: On a beach I photographed with a the SX-70 a polaroid showing sand and stones. Again the resulting picture was photographed with the Polaroid-camera. The distances in space and time […]

Ha!

OK, so here’s the deal. I’ve yet to read any of the Harry Potter books. I’ve yet to read any of Dave Eggers books. I want and fully intend to read all of that stuff eventually. But, eventually isn’t now. Still, even I, with no understanding of the source material, can see that Harry Potter […]

Noticing that Freddy Vs. Jason was playing at the local second run $1 $3 movie theater, and thinking that it was October, and I wanted to get into a Halloween kind of mood, I decided to check it out. I fully expected it to rival a black hole in its suck factor. Don’t get me […]

Beginning of the End

In the past day, I had somebody embedding web bugs in comments on my site — I guess to see how often their comment is read or that page i s loaded, and somebody spamming my comments — I guess because that page must be scoring high google marks on some keyword they want. Sigh […]

Creation of Adam

How did I never see that in Michelangelo’s Creation of Adam, god is represented in a cross section of a human brain? Sister Wendy already hipped me to the flaccid “finger”, but the whole brain thing slipped right past. It’s so obvious and cool once it’s pointed out to you. Thanks MeFi.

Save the Date — Program

The Nuart in LA is going to be doing a showing of Tron on Friday, January 9. Imagine that, Tron on the big screen. The lights, the colors, the wonderfully 80s cheeseball graphics. That would be so cool. I hope my user will let me go … EOL
