At the time, in 2004, I was sitting outside in the sun, apparently recovering from some sort of strange events from the evening before, sitting very pensively and introspectively thinking about the future.
Today, in 2008, it is again a beautiful day. First thing this morning Jacki caught me in a towel listening to reggae-ska. Then as I bopped around in the kitchen I became a bit over zealous with some hot sauce, realizing that if I put the bottle near my hip and shook my butt it made a funny noise. (fortunately, I still have lips after eating the sloppy burrito-esque concoction) I'm considering drinking a 40 and going to the basement to play with my speakers and cereal.
I wonder, what sort of progression is this?? Where will I be in four years? hrrmmmm.....

It was a silly discovery made early this morning before the majority of the house had to go to thesis. We giggled for the snowday and were astounded that yet again, our walk was cleared. well, at least sorta cause it was still snowing then.
We say thank you whomever you are!

Since its earliest days, cinema has drawn comparison to the domain of magic and fantasies. Many of the form's early scholars agreed less on what film was (theatre? a new kind of pencil?) and more on its ability to psychologically transport viewers. A two-part show opening February 14 at the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, in Washington, D.C., explores the ongoing development of this scenario, especially as it relates to the move toward the realm of video and digital media. The first component of The Cinema Effect: Illusion, Reality and the Moving Image is thus entitled "Dreams," and it explores "film's ability to transport viewers out of their everyday lives into states that lie between wakefulness and sleep, sending them on journeys into the darker recesses of the imagination." Artists in the first half of this pioneering exhibition include Darren Almond, Michael Bell-Smith, Bruce Conner, Tacita Dean, Stan Douglas, Harun Farocki, Douglas Gordon, Rodney Graham, Gary Hill, Steve McQueen, Tony Oursler, Wolfgang Staehle, Siebren Versteeg, Andy Warhol, and others. Common among their works is a tracing of the moving image's collapse into pop culture--and vice-versa-- which is to be expected as this form of expression becomes the dominant context for communicative exchange. "Dreams" will be followed-up by a second component, "Realisms," which plumbs a fascinating irony--that "in an age when documenting 'real life' in moving image formats becomes ever easier," because of the increased availability of DIY media, "the line between fact and fiction is increasingly complicated." Both halves work together to present a fantastical and high-fidelity vision of the cinematic. - Marisa Olson"
