Tape Art - Max Zorn




entirely made from packing tape! street art, next level.  duct tape finally gets some artistic competition...  :-)
beyond being awed by the artist's creativity, the film noir effect of these sepia tones feels really good.

thank you, Max Zorn!





Vegan for Lent


i'm not Catholic, but it felt right to try a little discipline for this season. so no food made from animals or animal by-products for me for the next 40 days. 1 day down, 39 to go. thank goodness for tasty vegan Indian, Mediterranean and Thai take-out in my 'hood because i cannot subsist on tofu and fake eggs/cheese.

Love

one day.

p.s. i argued w/ a cynic yesterday who said he never gave his wife anything for Valentine's Day because it's a phony holiday invented to sell greeting cards.  i told him that if he proposed to his wife with a diamond ring, he'd already fallen for the biggest scam out there (a double scam in that diamonds aren't as valuable as they are marketed to be and that the idea that they represent love is a total marketing/advertising invention) so he shouldn't be indignant about buying a $5 card & a bouquet of roses that will make his wife happy...

J. Dilla - Donuts Are Forever


my knowledge of hip hop is so slight that i only learned about this legendary music producer last year.  a friend took me to the annual Dilla party, Donuts Are Forever, and i danced in ecstasy all night long.  had no idea that one man was responsible for the sounds that i considered to be the glory days of hip hop. great music, great party. so i'll def be at this year's! next sunday at brooklyn bowl

the "Where I've Been" app


i'm diggin this new facebook app! proud of my wanderlust. :)
red = where i've lived
blue = where i've been
green = where i want to go

Acting Technique - Just be

“If there’s an actor on the stage with a cat, who are you going to watch, the actor or the cat? You’re going to watch the cat because the cat’s just being a cat”

"Dinner in NY"


what i really like about Miho Aikawa's photo series, Dinner in NY, is that it shows an honest view of a life i know well in this city. eating in bed, eating on couches over small coffee tables, huddled at small dining tables with friends. lots of eating alone, lots of tv (or laptop use), the zoned out look that happens sometimes when you're alone, the different ways we eat together at work and at home. from the outside in (and maybe a little on the inside), it seems lonely or melancholic at first, but it's not...



Taming of the Shrew (set in the 1930s - cast pic)


...this motley crew of a cast...! good times.  it was a limited run, but i had lots of fun.

R.I.P. Don Cornelius


to this day, go to any black function where there's music and inevitably, at some point, a bunch of folks will create a Soul Train line! and you'd better show your stuff when you dance down the line! (i still get a little nervous that my skills won't be up to par when it's my turn...)
thank you for your living legacy of pride and celebration, Mr. Cornelius.
"Love, Peace and Sooooooooooooooooooooooul!"
