Bronx, NY. 2018.
'Chubby Satan Soldier'



The Game of Life explained by Kenny Rogers.


On a warm summer's eve
On a train bound for nowhere
I met up with the gambler
We were both too tired to sleep
So we took turns a-starin'
Out the window at the darkness
The boredom overtook us,
And he began to speak
He said, "Son, I've made a life
Out of readin' people's faces
Knowin' what the cards were
By the way they held their eyes
So if you don't mind me sayin'
I can see you're out of aces
For a taste of your whiskey
I'll give you some advice"
So I handed him my bottle
And he drank down my last swallow
Then he bummed a cigarette
And asked me for a light
And the night got deathly quiet
And his faced lost all expression
He said, "If you're gonna play the game, boy
You gotta learn to play it right
You've got to know when to hold 'em
Know when to fold 'em
Know when… 

bye.

High School Russian (No room in the Debate team) : Средняя школа Брутона


True artist at work in personal home studio.
Студия - мастерская художника или рабочего. Это может быть предназначено для актерского мастерства, архитектуры, живописи, керамики (керамики), скульптуры, my band 'Killing Cycle' won the high school Battle of the Band's and was in the Gazette, оригами, деревообработки, скрапбукинга, фотографии, графического дизайна, кинопроизводства, анимации, промышленного дизайна, радио или телевидения, вещания или создания музыки. Этот термин также используется для мастерской танцоров, часто для танцевальной студии.

Слово студия происходит от итальянской студии: от латинского: studium, от studere, что означает изучение или рвение.

Французский (Don't forget chess!)термин для студии, ателье, помимо обозначения студии художника, используется для характеристики студии модельера. Ателье также имеет смысл быть домом  алхимика или волшебника.

THEATRELAB

               
                  Installation art
                  By Jane Public
                #theatrelab #performanceart #installationart

                                               

Installation art can be either temporary or permanent. Installation artworks have been constructed in exhibition spaces such as museums and galleries, as well as public and private spaces. The genre incorporates a broad range of everyday and natural materials, which are often chosen for their "evocative" qualities, as well as new media such as video, sound, performance, immersive virtual reality and the internet. Many installations are site-specific in that they are designed to exist only in the space for which they were created, appealing to qualities evident in a three-dimensional immersive medium.  bye.

#AtlanticSalmon



JANE NUTRITIOUSS(sic) TIP OF THE DAY:  Wild salmon that you can purchase on a great sale is an excellent source of vitamin B12, vitamin D and selenium. It is a good source of niacin, omega-3 fatty acids, protein, phosphorus , K2 and vitamin B6. It is also a good source of choline not chlorine, pantothenic acid, biotin and potassium. Eat em and smile. nuff said. bye.



"I believe everyone should have a sanctuary. A room. A comfy couch, lots of pillows, an old table to place my cup of tea. And of course all of these books. I have filled bookshelves all over the house, but these shelves make me happy. Favorite books, favorite authors. It's a lovely place to read and relax. Everyone should make and have their own personal sanctuary." 

                     - Barbara Kingslover


p.s.  'Prodigal Summer' by Kingslover is one of my favorite novels ever!

the heat is on.



it took me years to appreciate, HEAT by Miami Vice famed director Michael Mann. when I first saw this 'movie' in a cineplex back when I was in film school. all I remember is leaving that 3-hour thing with half of an overpriced  container of popcorn (honesty, I don't remember what the hell I ordered that day but I can only imagine that is was a bucket of popcorn...sounds bout right ), only impressed by the movie's pristine sound-design and the bank robbery action street sequence - Nothing More. And now, 20 years later, and upon viewing it with a pair of fresh new eyes, I feel it is an absolute brilliant and emotionally charged masterpiece. De Niro's performance is spectacular. HEAT is spectacular. watch it. Evidence that time does heal all wounds, even after 20 years.  

bye.



 what did you eat today that was out of the ordinary?
an ice cream cone at Ben and Jerry's. On a waffle sprinkle cone also, forgot to mention.

p.s. i shave today. or take a penalty card.

                                                                            

The letters of Sylvia Plath

"Plath was many things to many people: family, student, journalist, poet, friend, artist, girlfriend, wife, novelist, peer and mother; but perhaps the most overlooked feature of her life was that she was human, and therefore fallible. She misspelled words, punctuated incorrectly, lied, misquoted texts, exaggerated, was sarcastic, and sometimes brutally honest."

with fellow falconer, ole pal and actor,  Richard Gere, 2018.

Evidence suggests that the art of falconry may have begun in Mesopotamia, with the earliest accounts dating to approximately 2,000 BC. There are also some raptor representations in the northern Altai, western Mongolia.[ The falcon was a symbolic bird of ancient Mongol tribes. There is some disagreement about whether such early accounts document the practice of falconry (from The Epic of Gilgamesh and others) or are misinterpreted depictions of humans with birds of prey. ]During the Turkic Period of Central Asia (7th century AD), concrete figures of falconer on horseback were described on the rocks in Kyrgyz. Falconry was probably introduced to Europe around AD 400, when the Huns and Alans invaded from the East. Joey and Richard were not born at this point in time, nor even a thought for consideration. Boy, times sure have changed.

R.I.P. James


never forgotten. 


so sad to see your coffin body so terribly swollen. so poorly designed for this viewing. your loving spirit so clearly departed from all of this physical matter. what I noticed resting inside of this coffin viewing was only a fond memory of the many years of knowing you and your good will. I know for certain that you are truly resting in peace now. I called your cellphone a few times after leaving the viewing to hear your voice a few last times on your recorded answering machine message.  I won't forget you, James. I promise you that. rip

Head alone shows you in the prodigious act
Of digesting what centuries alone digest:
The mammoth, lumbering statuary of sorrow,
Indissoluble enough to riddle the guts
Of a whale with holes and holes, and bleed him white
Into salt seas.  Hercules had a simple time,
Rinsing those stables:  a baby's tears would do it.
But who'd volunteer to gulp the Laocoon,
The Dying Gaul and those innumerable pietas
Festering on the dim walls of Europe's chapels,
Museums and sepulchers?  You. bye.
                               You
Who borrowed feathers for your feet, not lead,
Not nails, and a mirror to keep the snaky head
In safe perspective, could outface the gorgon-grimace
Of human agony:  a look to numb
Limbs:  not a basilisk-blink, nor a double whammy,
But all the accumulated last grunts, groans,
Cries and heroic couplets concluding the million
Enacted tragedies on these blood-soaked boards,
And every private twinge a hissing asp
To petrify your eyes, and every village
Catastrophe a writhing length of cobra,
And the decline of empires the thick coil of a vast
Anacnoda.
          Imagine:  the world
Fisted to a foetus head, ravined, seamed
With suffering from conception upwards, and there
You have it in hand.  Grit in the eye or a sore
Thumb can make anyone wince, but the whole globe
Expressive of grief turns gods, like kings, to rocks.
Those rocks, cleft and worn, themselves then grow
Ponderous and extend despair on earth's
Dark face. bye.
           So might rigor mortis come to stiffen
All creation, were it not for a bigger belly
Still than swallows joy.
                         You enter now,
Armed with feathers to tickle as well as fly,
And a fun-house mirror that turns the tragic muse
To the beheaded head of a sullen doll, one braid,
A bedraggled snake, hanging limp as the absurd mouth
Hangs in its lugubious pout.  Where are
The classic limbs of stubborn Antigone?
The red, royal robes of Phedre?  The tear-dazzled
Sorrows of Malfi's gentle duchess?
                                   Gone
In the deep convulsion gripping your face, muscles
And sinews bunched, victorious, as the cosmic
Laugh does away with the unstitching, plaguey wounds
Of an eternal sufferer.
                         To you
Perseus, the palm, and may you poise
And repoise until time stop, the celestial balance
Which weighs our madness with our sanity.
