Emily Dickinson Thanksgiving poem


One Day is there of the series
Termed "Thanksgiving Day"
Celebrated part at table
Part in memory -
Neither Ancestor nor Urchin
I review the Play -
Seems it to my Hooded thinking
Reflex Holiday -
Had There been no sharp subtraction
From the early Sum -
Not an Acre or a Caption
Where was once a Room
Not a mention whose small Pebble
Wrinkled any Sea,
Unto such, were such Assembly
'Twere "Thanksgiving Day" -

 bye.

Who's Afraid Of Virginia Woolf

Every secret of a writer's soul, every experience of his life, every quality of his mind is written large in his works.

Su Friedrich's new experimental documentary film about her aging mother now on MUBI


For All Mankind.

This movie documents the Apollo missions perhaps the most definitively of any movie under two hours. Al Reinert watched all the footage shot during the missions--over 6,000,000 feet of it, and picked out the best. Instead of being a newsy, fact-filled documentary. Reinart focuses on the human aspects of the space flights. The only voices heard in the film are the voices of the astronauts and mission control. Reinart uses the astronaunts' own words from interviews and from the mission footage. The score by Brian Eno underscores the strangeness, wonder, and and beauty of the astronauts' experiences--experiences which they were privileged to have for a first time "for all mankind."
                     
The film begins with President Kennedy's September 12, 1962 speech at Rice announcing the goal of going to the moon. The rest of the film, using NASA footage and the voices of Apollo astronauts, takes us on a voyage to the moon, from the donning of space suits to splashdown. Footage of the scientists and engineers in Houston is inter-cut with footage of blastoff, orbiting the earth, looking back at a receding earth from inside the space capsule, circling the moon, seeing its surface up close, landing, and scenes of the astronauts on the moon's surface. They bring music with them, announce football scores, test a theory of Galileo's, and reflect on the wonder of the experience. 

Bye- meaning... BLAST OFF!!!

A mouse (plural: mice) is a small rodent thing characteristically having a pointed snout, small rounded ears, a body-length scaly tail and a high breeding rate. The best known mouse species is the common house i-mouse (Mus musculus). It is also a popular thing that likes to sit on top of raw wood desks. In some places, certain kinds of field mice are locally uncommon and can be charged and plugged in. They are known to invade homes for sheer company. bye.

Loving Vincent.


Modern technology crammed into XtraSize on wheels.

The term "microcinema" was first coined in 1994 by Rebecca Barten and David Sherman founders of San Francisco's Total Mobile Home microCINEMA, where all the films are "underground" because they're shown in the basement. The founders say they envisioned an alternative movement, a sort of cinematic microbrewery. And now, the word has come to describe an intimate, low-budget style of movie shot on relatively cheap formats like Hi-8 video, DV, and (less often) older do-it-yourself stock like 16mm film. As of late, a large growing subculture of film makers has risen in the wake of technological advancements that have made low-budget film making more affordable and pleasing to the eye. One camera in particular, that has made a large impact, is the Panasonic DVX100 followed recently by the Panasonic HVX200 High Definition camcorder (many other cameras are used as well but DVX and HVX are arguably the favorites). Many experimental art enthusiasts, film festivals and websites have hosted films made from the microcinema subculture and screen works by carrying them around in found Xtra size shopping carts all and looking for places to plug things into routinely. bye.

Hesse.



The documentary 'Eva Hesse', about the artist, is now uploaded to NETFLIX. Highly recommend. Eva is one of the greatest female artists ever and died (from the toxins of her art) leaving behind a legacy of revolutionary work. bye.
