"People United for Sustainable Housing (PUSH) is teaming up with The Urban Soccer Initiative (USI) to raise money in order to help further rehab at the Massachusetts Avenue Park. The fundraising event, An Evening of Art for the Park, will take place on August 20th and include a silent art auction. The funds raised will be used to build a multi-purpose playing field at the Massachusetts Avenue property. Could you possibly include something about this in your blog and/or pass this information along to other artists who may still be interested? I am still looking for art donations. To thank artists for their donation, they will receive two complimentary tickets to the event which will include beer, wine, music, snacks, and an overall good time :). Any artists interested should contact me directly- email@example.com, 716-604-6183."

"This country was rightly elated when it elected its first African-American president more than 20 months ago. That high was destined to abate, but we reached a new low last week. What does it say about America now, and where it is heading, that a racial provocateur, wielding a deceptively edited video, could not only smear an innocent woman but make every national institution that touched the story look bad?"
"The liaison between sculpture and photography had formal as well as social advantages. Early photography, with its long exposure time, required motionless subjects. If a person sitting for a portrait so much as twitched, the image was blurred. Sculpture was much easier to photograph. It didn’t twitch."
"Typically, the appearance of Alan Moore’s name on a comic book has been a harbinger of heady, consequential writing inside: a promise of mighty champions empowered through mystical or superscientific methods and whose conflicts would challenge the reader’s perceptions of heroism and humanity."
"Davies’ theme about the art world is simultaneously simple and all-encompassing: that the making of art is nothing but artifice and that the cloak of such artifice is necessary to shield the rest of us from the blinding glow of truth and reality."
Something I listened to this week...
(2007) DYKE AND THE BLAZERS • WE GOT MORE SOUL
Ridiculously good. Across the two discs, there's more than two hours of tight, funky grooves from the late 1960s, with not a single filler track in the bunch. I had taken this off the iPod because I thought I was done with it for a while, though that while didn't last long and it's back in rotation because I missed it too much.
I am part of the sun as my eye is part of me. That I am part of the earth my feet know perfectly, and my blood is part of the sea. There is not any part of me that is alone and absolute except my mind, and we shall find that the mind has no existence by itself, it is only the flitter of the sun on the surface of the water.
