les trois choses

November 19, 2010

my friends,

some information. but we already knew that, right!

i don’t care if its in the name of art. this is tres creepy.

and speaking of creepy but also kind of amazing.

bye  bye,

ps. let’s not forget this. the sad fate of actors–but good for them that they’re getting work.


i’ve noticed that

November 12, 2010

my friends,

i have had the distinct pleasure of noticing how dumb people are in the recent days, weeks, months, years.

in fact, i made the same quip that this journalist makes in an interview for the brooklyn rail with regard to people and how they very often behave.

yes my friends, “i’ve noticed that!” that’s make it a catch phrase, shall we?


listen up

mes amis,

all i can say is quoi??? but it it really true about classical music being played to cut back on crime in snooze zealand? and who knew they even had a crimes there? i thought kiwis were supposed to be nice.

anyhoo, i’m not saying i’m not a fan of mozart and his boys club (and it is a boys club, my friends!) but what about a little hip hop, gospel or country to smooth out the beat??? even those bone thugs are n-harmony!

even if i do endorse safety for the most part(y), this news makes kippy very uncomfortable! speaking of parties. are you a member of what the festa di the calls the “new elite“?

sometimes people say philosophers are elitist but i’d have to argue otherwise. at the very least, i offer you this interesting article by steve pyke in his quest to photograph great thinkers.

now it’s about time this thinker has to mover and shaker!

various news bits

mes amis,

magic and science are always a fascinating duo. as a whippersnapper one summer, i toiled at a now-defunkt magic shop. it’s where i learned how to juggle, where i learned to flirt, and yes where i learned a few tricks of the magic trade. i have not watched the whole 11 minute video but i look forward to doing so!

do you have a lucky charm? apparently there has been a study done on how they are good to have.

also michael jackson will have a cirque du soliel show about him. may he vocal rest in peace. i am sure it will be thrill-ing. (wah wah)

ooh and last but not least, ai wei wei’s studio’s getting shut down. how i enjoyed the piece about the artiste in the new yorker earlier this year. it all reminds me of how i’ve still got to toot on over to shanghai before they put the k-bosh on old wei wei!

ok my friends.

chow for now,

ps mes amis, can we move to france where the people are at least politically active and have a culture to fight for? this photo is from the protests they were having to protect their 12 hour work week.



happy hallow, don’t be shallow
