Blue? [May. 29th, 2009|04:44 pm]
I saw I Am Curious - Yellow - finally, a protagonist I can identify with! However, it was a mere diversion from my current hobby, which is to see every Monkees episode ever aired. Because Peter Tork is dreamy.

I'm glad the assassins missed their cues yesterday - the secret code words used by Dianne Feinstein & Rick Warren: bullet, violence, aim, commit.

You don't have to have been a philosophy major to enjoy "Notes From Underground" . . .

Henry Darger [Nov. 22nd, 2008|02:26 pm]
I dare not describe this - just take two minutes to do a little internet research about Henry Darger. An image search, too. I learned about it from a movie titled "In the Realms of the Unreal" - which probably lays out the story in a better order than the internet, if you have that kind of time.

It makes me feel
a) sad about what the guy had to go through as a kid
b) amazed at (and lucky/honored to see) the art
c) hesitant to agree with PZ/Dawkins/Hitchens about eradicating religion
d) desperate to learn/make more stuff (y'know, creative) before I die
e) in a hurry to reproduce

Hey, I like little white girls too. I like them so much I used to be one.

I do suspect (as do some of the people who reviewed some $450 (used!) book on Amazon about the guy) that most of the 15,000-page story he wrote is less coherent than the excerpts - otherwise it would be more available by now (like A Confederacy of Dunces).

If anyone knows some other good outsider art, lemme know. For a quick hit, look at The Throne of the Third Heaven of the Nations' Millennium General Assembly, which may blow you away. Doesn't it feel good? (It feels better to see it in person.)

sweet city woman! [Nov. 17th, 2008|02:01 pm]
I liked Wonderwall (not the brothers Gallagher) (nor comedy legend Gallagher, for that matter) from the first time I heard it. I liked Metal Machine Music (but not Berlin, so much) from the first time I heard it. Will I like Carnival of Light from the first time I hear it?


Maybe it, too, will have sufficient bubblegum in its soul. I'm more excited about this than I was about jury duty! (The circles under my eyes today attest to my adrenalized sleeplessness as, at 3 am, I plotted out how I could avoid being stricken.)

P.s. nope, didn't even get to voir dire.

I want to like Mos Def as an actor. Why is it so hard for me? Big ups to the concept of "sweding," though. To Swede. I swede, you swede, he/she/it swedes, we swede, you swede, they swede. Swede, sweded, have sweded.

Perhaps the positive feelings I have towards this concept are actually correlated to the cocoa brownies I was eating at the time, and not correlated at all to Jack Black. And I'm fine with that. Although I'm having a pavlovian salivary reflex right now, which is inconvenient at this time.

Jonathan Richman's hands don't look small and soft, but I don't mind.

I am relieved [Sep. 10th, 2008|02:41 pm]
Americans don't need to know anything to get along in society except where to get money, where to get food/clothes/shelter, and where to get transportation. I've been giving in to this fact slowly, and my life is much easier. The last vestiges of guilt gave way when I read that Douglas Adams doesn't think I need to be computer-literate. What a relief.
