A friend sent these and I took great delight in them: 1. Coffee (n.), the person upon whom one coughs. 2. Flabbergasted (adj.), appalled over how much weight you have gained. 3. Abdicate (v.), to give up all hope of ever having a flat stomach. 4. Esplanade (v.), to attempt an explanation while drunk. 5.…… Continue reading Neologisms
I absolutely love film. I still have a Korvette’s 8mm left behind from my grandfather when he first came to this country from Lithuania. It sits in a box in my closet, begging me to free it and roam about with it in an inspired trance. I was thinking about the shame of the Oscars,…… Continue reading The Cinema
Midnight movie at The Music Box:The movie takes place in two parts. The first half, in an unnamed desert, begins with the title character, accompanied by his naked son, hunting down and killing a band of outlaws who have butchered the inhabitants of a town. After leaving his son with monks he has rescued from…… Continue reading “El Topo”: A Quick (Unfinished?) Synopsis

The Letter Spirit project is an attempt to model central aspects of human high-level perception and creativity on a computer. It is based on the belief that creativity is an automatic outcome of the existence of sufficiently flexible and context-sensitive concepts — what we call fluid concepts. Accordingly, our goal is to implement a model…… Continue reading Letter Spirit

Artist Céleste Boursier-Mougenot. Saw his installation, From Hear to Ear seven years ago at the Cincinnati Contemporary Arts Center. He recently had an exhibit in NY (below) of vaccuum cleaners producing sound via strategically-placed harmonicas. In the backdrop of this exhibit, he a magnified a candle flame and kept the camera steady upon it. He…… Continue reading Finch Me A Vacuum

This unique peek into bird watching across the Baltics is done in an accessible, comic book format, complete with light-yet- compelling narrative. The characters visit the Baltics for vacation (Lithuania, Latvia, and Estonia), and their first stop is the Lithuania’s captial, Vilnius. During their tour around Gediminas’ Pilis (Grand Duke Gediminas’ Castle), the female character…… Continue reading “Birds of the Baltic: An Orinthological Travelogue”, E.J.

“For poetry makes nothing happen: it survives In the valley of its making where executives Would never want to tamper, flows on south From ranches of isolation and the busy griefs, Raw towns that we believe and die in; it survives, A way of happening, a mouth.” —Auden Response to Auden Alter perception to…… Continue reading “Poetry makes nothing happen”
Žižek circumnavigates one ideology within this short-yet-inspiring documentary. It is a document, yes, of him going from one speaking engagement to another, decrying the attendance to his lectures by students and budding philosophers alike and observing his son as essence: the natural form of un-love. It is a deception, this idea of love. What we…… Continue reading “I like philosophy as an anonymous job”
After watching BULLITT from way back when, I have come to the conclusion that I have great admiration for a director that commands presence with silence, utilizes an emotional climax with only subtlety…the undertow of intensity. Wind-blown wisps of hair across porcelain foreheads and glazed, horse-eyed gazes on the beach. Like Jacqueline Bissett, I discover…… Continue reading Peter Yates’ Psyche
Viewed Buñel’s 1974 classic, “Phantom Of Liberty”. Have to note that I did the bougeoise thing and twice rewound a scene in which a police academy professor turns around only to reveal the age-old prank of having a piece of paper pinned to his back. Buñel masterfully weaves several subplots into one another, illustrating the…… Continue reading “I’m Sick of Symmetry”
Saw “Veronika Voss” by Fassbinder. The film offers two themes: the dichotomous “Jeckyll And Hyde” metaphor and the idea of life imitating art. This realistic post-war Germany piece is stunning. Though filmed in 1982, the film’s setting and cinematography is authentic to the period, believeable in its stark representation of Germany’s identity crisis, post-Nazi era.…… Continue reading Mind-Binder
