Museum of the Moving Image Re-Opens

Images from Cathedral by Marco Brambilla (b. 1960, Milan, Italy; lives in New York City),
9 mins looping video.
Cathedral was filmed at the Toronto Eaton Centre megamall during the 2007 Christmas shopping season. Over 150 hours of high definition footage was shot with camcorders placed inconspicuously throughout the mall. Brambilla then used compositing and rotoscoping techniques to join imagery recorded from different angles, focal lengths, and perspectives into a single, kaleidoscopic video tableau.

Jackson Heights Treasure

Jackson Heights on a cold sunny day. I found a new pet vegetable that looks like a dead green rat and an old caddy covered in snow.

Rock and Roll Photo Show at BMA--ZZZZZZ

So I went to BMA yesterday, a favorite place in town for yours truly, and tolerated a viewing of the "Rock and Roll Photography Show" which was a overcrowded snoozer if there was ever one. Boring. However there were 2 photos of Tina Turner that gave me some weird kinda goose bump photogasm. I wish I could find exactly what I saw to post up here, but its Getty Images and they are gestapo with their shiza. So I will post other inspiring images of the Turner Rock Goddess.

Francis Bacon at the MET

The last painting unfinished.

Francis Bacon and William S Burroughs

I braved the throbbing humanity of the MET on a Friday afternoon to see my favorite party animal, Francis Bacon on display. He painted huge canvases when it was unfashionable and he kept a very untidy studio. I always find myself looking closely for splatters and junk that might have adhered to the canvas in those messy places, but I think he worked anything that was a mistake into the final artwork. He made the most of chaos which I why I love him so much.

A flower grows from the sewege

I planted this lily last year and it finally bloomed today--I'm so proud of my little plants!
