I just got invited to this, by a Maine friend of a friend! So sweet, I’m excited.
Nick Hornby writes about sadness being better than happiness -
I’m not sure I agree but this is a pretty good quote from the article: “Some people are at their best when they’re miserable. Ryan Adams’s beautiful Heartbreaker album is, I suspect, the product of a great deal of pain, and “Oh My Sweet Carolina” is its perfect, still centre, its faint heartbeat, a song so quiet that you don’t want to breathe throughout its duration.”
I agree with that, at least.
What are the chances? The artist Nami Kurita, from California College of the Arts (a place I’ve been scoping out for some time now) designed the Spring ‘12 program that I happened to pick up… with all the speakers coming this Spring to both San Francisco and Oakland campuses, which is pretty cool. And the graphic she happened to design is titled “Mythical Creatures” which is basically my as yet unmade artists’ design and relational artworks collective I am planning to set up later in life.
Whoever does these things, he/she/they certainly have a sense of humor.
Check out the artist via the graphic. She’s pretty cool.
is a documentary I’ve been meaning to watch, about human’s reliance and yet complete disrespect of other animals, and I may have my class watch it (maybe as a homework) but I can’t stomach it right now. It’s on the list for the week though. So… if you watch it, let me know what you think.
A guy took polaroids for a year -
And some of them are pretty sweet.
There’s something to a project you do piece by piece… and the overall effect is usually a wow. Like taking one Polaroid a day, for a whole year. What project would you do for a whole year if you could?
I want to make this with a friend.
One of my favorite food blogs, Honey & Jam’s Peach Blueberry Pie…. mmmm

Photos from Nepal -
Fullbright scholarships are so cool! And these photos are amazing. The one of the mountains especially, and the one of the woman cleaning rice in her house, with the shaft of light coming through, the way she is so focused on what she’s doing, and how she’s probably lived there her entire life, and that light.. that shaft angling in… is probably it. Something indescribable happens, the feeling in that…
